So it's ok for R/town to loose players but not Antrim what the f**k goes on in your head man


Who said Randalstown will lose players?

Surely all the numbers Whitehall have and they take sanctions from a neighbouring club,surely playing them before club men off their own,they aren't the only club to do it,but then clubs wonder why the lads that were overlooked vfor say Antrim lads,stop playing and then people ask why they're not playing Res,why they quit , :-\

Or 2 young lads from Antrim donít have an Un21 team to play in and throw the head up and are lost to the association for good.

Will that mean double the money?
one of them was on the payroll last year and the other one must b replacing Madden which isnít a hard act to follow

What has Madden ever done on you?
Nothing personally but I'd say most people on this board buy club lotto, pay membership, help with fUndraising we need to keep our clubs going and every pound is hard got and boys like him, and others, take that money out of the association. - that's my problem with him and others but he takes the biscuit by taking a team in a neighbouring parish and not his own who gave him a good playing career

Do you the reasons why he doesn't take his own club team? You are commenting on something that, like the rest of us, you know very little about.

In some clubs an outside voice is the best way forward and when people pay into the club lotto or whatever they do so knowing that is where the money is going.
Id say if you asked your hardworking voluntary treasurer he might well prefer to have faith in one of your own but here everyone is entitled to their opinion  :-X

In my club our treasurer was more than happy to pay the outside man, in fact she help to vote him in.
With the McNultys doing it for free can you send your surplus to the financially struggling clubs? sounds like we need a solidarity fund

No bother. Sure weíve been bailing the city clubs out as years....  ;) ;D

I collapsed crying into my wife's arms this morning. It's been a rough few days at work, I've been struggling to meet the deadlines and wondering if I'm going to blow it in my new job. I've been so overwhelmed I've had no time to exercise or do anything fun. The daylight savings change has not helped. Dark and disturbing thoughts have been haunting me for the last few weeks, and last night they got so out of hand I couldn't get to sleep until 3 in the morning. My new health insurance plan kicks in next week, so I should be able to get an appointment with a counselor soon. I don't want to burden my wife with the gory details of the thoughts I can't get out of my head. She's been very supportive and understanding though. I'd be in a much worse place without her and without our sweet little 8 month-old daughter.

Iíve been in that situation, but work is work and family are family. Take a step back and ask whatís important, your wife and kid or work? I had myself absolutely tortured at the turn of the year but there are always brighter days ahead. Trust me, no matter how bad things seem, nothing will lift you like the smile of your children. Iíve 2 and to be honest along with my wife theyíve saved my life.

Whats the craic with parking around Pairc Esler?

Any advice from any of the Down / Armagh / Newry residents?

Probably best to park in the town and walk down as traffic getting away can be an nightmare. Public car park across the road from the front of the Buttercrane shopping centre would probably be your best bet and then a 5-10 walk down.

This is what i was told on the Down board

Lol PJ. Good to see a Glenravel man on the panel after a few years. Alec Mc Quillan and Martin Mulholland were two of the best Saffrons ever in my time watching. Eamon has the world of ability too....hope he can kick on into a big player for us now!

Alec has to be in the Top3 best Antrim players of all time I'd say.

Really? Superlative free taker, longevity too but that's some claim. I'm not disputing your statement right enough. Trained with him regularly at club and can safely say he was Glenravel's greatest.

I'd be quite confident that 7/10 people would agree with me.
