COC and DOC the next ones on the conveyor belt to get smashed by Corofin. Really they only have themselves to blame if they donít win the AI this year given the level of competition.

Crokes looked fairly handy themselves today. And Crokes (Kilmacud version) will be dangerous if they get through Leinster.

Ballintubber v Corofin will be interesting. Taking on Corofin in an open game of football is probably not the way to go so will Ballintubber go defensive and hope to nick enough scores on the break like Mountbellew almost managed the first day out.

Clannís strength was supposed to be their defence, they werenít trying to play an open game. Which doesnít bode well for Ballintubber or anyone else with probably their best forward still to add into that attack.

Doesnít he live in Kiltoom?

Interesting that he has dabbled in the football. Heís a St Thomasí man. No football down there. Iíd say theyíd burst any stray footballs.

His son plays football for Brigids. Was on the team that won the Junior county title last year.

Manning18 doubling down despite not being aware that Cunningham had managed teams to AI finals and Connacht and Leinster titles in football a couple days ago. To quote him - Ďbizarreí.

Very good appointment. Much better than OíRourke whose record thus far is nearly as laced with failure as his attempt to cobble together a background team was.

Seafoid discovers article thatís literally two months old to the shock of no one.

Well the Ros CB must still be in a bit of a shock seeing they haven't appointed anyone yet.

No one in the county that has any sense is surprised it's taken this long. Des Newton was appointed in mid November..

Roscommon to spend the summer practicing hooking and pulling on the ground? This car crash should be entertaining at least. Absolutely bizarre stuff

This is a proper face-palm post.

Connacht is wide open but only Corofin have a chance of going any further.

Nope. The opposite is far more true.

If another team is somehow good enough to win Connacht they have a great chance because thereís few if any outstanding teams left in the country. But Connacht is Corofinís to lose. Why people try to play the poor mouth online Iíll never know.

The only question that matters is whether anyone can beat Corofin for the sake of the Galway footballers
Corofin seem to get stronger when they come out of Galway . Get Ian Burke back and they are well on course for another all Ireland . Corofin have a decent bench too and Have two very good new youngsters coming next year in Tony Gill and Matthew Cooley . Maybe 3 all Irelandís in a row ?

Corofin limped through two extra-times in Connacht last year. If anything they were their weakest.

GAA Discussion / Re: PuC and the Liam Miller Fundraiser
« on: November 06, 2018, 03:39:24 AM »
Lads, it's fairly well known down around Cork  but Michael O'Flynn (one of the chief organisers of the event) was pushing this so strongly out of a lot of guilt. Both he and Liam Miller are from the same area around Ovens and Miller invested heavily in property with O'Flynn around the boom time..he lost big, like a lot of others. O'Flynn could afford to take the hit, but others not so much.

This added to well known awful financial management by a lot of Soccer players is the reason the family were left so short on Liam's death. There were all sorts of rumours, but from speaking to people I believe he didn't have any alochol or substance abuse problems and the issue above is the main reason for the all the fundraising.

Some of the begrudgery and horsesh*t posted in this thread when you look back at it makes me wonder what is wrong with some people. I'm just happy the right thing was done in the end and the event went well. Great to see so much being raised and the donation to the Jack O'Driscoll fund aswell. Jack is a 19 year old Footballer and Hurler who was paralysed in a freak accident earlier this year during the snowstorms. Great to see him and his family benefitting from this also.

+1

Thereís an incredible disconnect between what even a top professional sportsperson earns and what they have at the end of their career because most are not prepared to manage those amounts of money responsibly and the lifestyle is almost by its nature expensive. Indeed most American professional basketball players are bankrupt within three years of retiring and they earn far more than Miller ever did.

That Liam Millerís family should suffer because he didnít make perfect financial decisions, and that most if not all of any remaining wealth was spent trying to keep the man alive in the first place, is utterly cruel to me.

But for this forum cruelty masquerading as Ďcommon senseí is par for the course.

Do I detect a little dislike for tubber from people outside of Mayo , cause of the o Connors perhaps ? Maybe I'm imagining it but they really are disliked outside of Mayo for some reason.

People donít care enough about Ballintubber to dislike them.

TŪr Conall fairly out it up to Clann but best team pulled through on the end.
Hopefully this game will have knocked the cobwebs of C na nG and help them to give Corofin a game next Sunday.
Is Paul Goggins the best Rossie manager on the planet at present?

FOD hasnít died..
