As for Mayo not being known for big business men at home or abroad? Have you ever been to London or New York? Full of wealthy Mayo men. At home, who do you think owns Portwest, Carraig Donn, McHale machinery, CBE, Smyths toys etc, some clever Galway lads?
Finally your understanding of economics is limited. Mayo has two of the wealthiest towns in Connacht. It also has big businesses and big backers throughout  the county.

I'm not disputing your backing, i'm saying you do a phenomenal job of getting backing. How hard is this to process? Mayo don't have comparable business here or abroad compared to counties like Cork, Kildare, Limerick, Galway, Wicklow etc (and you're deluded if you think they do) but the manage to obtain outside finance far better. Richest Mayo man Charlie Kenny is worth 200m. Plenty of counties can lay claim to billionaires.

Which wealthy towns are you referring to? When I think of wealthy towns in Connacht I think of Barna, Salthill, Oranmore, Rinville, Kinvara, Rosses point & Strandhill. Are there others with a more wealthy populace than these?
your confusing wealth towns with place with wealthy people living there .
west cork or wicklow probable has more millionaire than anywhere else outside of Dublin but they are feck all good to the GAA

wooly made a good point about a tier 2 competition in that it has to be their manin goal from the beginning of the year rather than something the are relegated to half way though the year.
If the winners could re enter the sam Maguire at sem final stage or something like it it could be a great incentive or bith dinalist promoted for the following year

She’s also the best there has been in LGF and has done a million times more good for the game than bad. But sure, forget that if it suits you.
Begrudgery still at the heart of this.
more of a case of Eaten bread is soon forgotten.
what ever arguments you make against her the she was  not that good any  is the stupidest.
She has brought ladies football to new places though playing football alone. no BS about I play football but I can be glamorous too excuse . She played hard and mean with a straight bat .
her time may or may not be gone but it looks like she'll rage against the dying light anyway .

as for my point about Ciaran Mc hee too took umbrage at being asked to prove himself after years in the mayo shirt  that was wrong as was Cora interview though she just put it in the hurt locker rather than walkout straight away

Darren coen seens to be what mayo foorball needs badly but distrusts the most a natural scoring forward , think of our best scoring forward and there was always a slight unease abot the, I exclude Cillian form this as his is a far more robust type , Brian kilkelly  , jarlath Jennings Maurice Sheridan Connor mortimer , ends Varley even Ciaran Mcdonald for those of us with long enough memories  before his beatification.
. The hardworking tireless type who  always give some return is much more favored

I've always said that too , it's like we don't take to them at all and seem to never be willing to build a forward line around one . Sure ciaran Mac was cut too early as well with the trial saga shite.
wonder will conor loftus suffer a similar fate  for more industrious players like James Durkan or conor  o Shea , not putting either down . just a choice of styles

I see Cillian McDaid has been released by Carlton Blues, would be a huge boost for Galway.

Big boost alright. Super talent. In an area where Galway need an upgrade as well.

Surprised he's back so soon. He was mad keen to get out there. Seems like it was his decision too.

Very few cone back and play like Paul Earley or Mickey Quinn. Most have broken bodies.

Hopefully only one year hadn't caused any injuries. A serious footballer and a fit McDaid a huge asset for Galway

even though it ended quickly didn't Marty Clarke nearly win an all Ireland on his own for down

Completely delusional stuff from Staunton, the degree of narcissism and self absorption is total.

It is clear there is no substance whatsoever to the previous allusions about an unsafe environment, the only unsafe thing here is anyone getting in the way of Cora's ego by the looks of things.
Serious danger of Criticism of Cora getting out of hand . she has been the mainstay and at time Carried mayo for  nearly 20 years so im sure she does feel a bit of ownership of the team and is quiet entitled to defend her free taking . its not as though mayo had a natural outstanding replacement for her . the frees were spread amongst several players. the whole thing reminds me of Ciran McDonald  and John omahoney mark2
Maybe the natural progression now is to retire and take the team on herself if she hasn't pissed too many people off .
if Roy keane can work for the FAI anything can happen

Well any one we didn't know about this time last year?
Sharoze seems to reinvented himself as a stocky hard man.
Neil douglas looks better than ever . but can he play county?
ballintubber and breaffy seemed to be backboned by lads we know or veterans we.

Cross had 3 adult football teams what seems like not that long ago. Is it 2 teams now?

Yeah, they won the Junior Championship with their 'B' Team in 2006.
They nearly always did if you include Keenagh

Now that things have settled down, does anyone have close to full story why Roachford wasn't kept on ? did the county board want him out ? or did horan make it know that he was interested in coming back and they decided he was a better option going forward ?
I ddont think they really wanted to get Rid of him as long he way will to do the Chairman's bidding who seems to want to push his influence fard beyond the board room into the the location of trainers who the medics are and what style of play and who is on the Field . see his barley concealed barbs at buckley and McEntee and there is a a raher dubious movement going on at coaching level in the county / academy level called the 'MAYO WAY' based on some notion of how some old Farts see the tradition of mayo football ie. the glorious 52 to 89 era when  most of them grew up.
Horan should be able to manage him but if doesn't hang around too long I know the first place I'd look

Looks like this fiasco has came to the most likely conclusion. I doubt the Mayo LGFA County Board ever thought they could hold onto the bans. Appealing it just prolonged the inconvenience for Carnacon. Players will think again about jumping ship from a Mayo Ladies team or trying to control its running's. A clear message of zero tolerance has been sent out. For those who have controlled it there will more than likely be no return. In the process they may have dragged a few innocent by-standers into the same situation.

The provocative act by the Mayo LGFA of banning Carnacon for a year, has badly backfired on them in my opinion. They have been knocked back at every turn. I don't know how you can see any positive side to it.
They really made fools of themselves , where do they go from here , who would trust them now to make a rational decision ?

I disagree! Do you think Carnacon (or any other club) will try that stunt again next year? Do you think that the Mayo LGFA County Board have set the tone for the future?

For 8 players from one club to walk away from the county squad a few days before a Championship match can not be condoned.

Carnacon thought they could bully this situation but got a bucket load of their own medicine.

By the way what has happened to Coras Book?

Id reckon Extra chapter are being furiously written.
evt sports Bio needs a hard done by/Crisis element

Would It be too cynical to think .....

They had a strong team that were challenging for Senior County titles back in the mid-late 1980's too.

There was a time you could say these things were swings and roundabouts, and they'd bounce back at some stage. Not sure you could say that now, I really do hope they bounce back.

the loss of board na moan and ESB on Corrick have been a massive blow and have not been replaced in any way,
even from a coaching/ structure  point of view many of the driving forces behind the club  were often outsider working there . Wasn't it that that brought Ciaran Mcdonalds dad down from Donegal
italso provided plenty of outlet for yong people to stay and work and the town thrived . the building boom hid it for a while but chickens are coming home to roost and now  its a Ghost town esp mid week  and the Team have done Brilliantly to stay senior as long as they Did .
Far from a unique story but still very sad

Horan doing videos talking about Adventures, Quests and Odysseys. "Brand Mayo". Some amount of cringe. It's not the presidency he's taking over

He seems to have you rattled anyway  ;D ;D

My eyes rattled from cringing?

"Brand Mayo". He's the manager of an average rural county's amateur football team, not the owner of the Dallas Cowboys. Quests and Odysseys is even stranger again. Perhaps he's a World of Warcraft fan
who are hugely popular and successful in fundraising allowing them to compete at the top level of football for the last decade from our impoverished county rather than whinge about dublin.
Welcome to footballs real world

Should he not be trying to extract less money from people in one of the countries more impoverished counties rather than more? Brand Mayo, sounds like a racket to take yet more from loyal fans. I do agree that Mayo's fundraising from far afield has been phenomenal from a county that wouldn't exactly be known for big businessmen abroad.
Dont worry about us lad, we have plenty of big businessmen at  home and abroad. And by big businessmen I mean big as in the type with money not big as in fat lads who eat burgers. Not sure which you meant.
Another positive is that we werent found with our hands in the till like one of our neighbours!

Not quite sure what the Supermacs dig is about. A family run business that give endless amounts of money to local charities and initiatives.

Mayo have the 4th lowest disposable income per person in Ireland and a similarly low GDP per person. I'm not particularly worried about it but perhaps you should be.
that is sad
but that is only the people who still live in mayo
for the thousand of the rest of us the Mayo team is one of the strongest links  after family we have to home  and a few fallow years would  change anything for us.
As an exiled Millionare  I will still be lobbing in the odd 100k here and there

yes whoever heard of a well paid sports man full of his own importance  exaggerating how much he earns and over spending becoming a bankrupt in a year after retirement ?
