McHale on offtheball this morning, very positive about Mayo's chance for the year ahead and thinks they'll have far too much for Roscommon. He always said that Roscommon should have won 3 in a row in Connacht and threw away the two they didn't win; I've listened to him a lot down the years, he doesn't exactly come across as an impressive individual you'd want involved in your setup.

I mean Mayo should likely win but if I heard the same type of scutter coming out of Ex Galway players as Maughan and McHale my alarm bells would be ringing. They seems determined to write Roscommon’s team talk for them. Anthony Cunningham will be loving it.

Probably won’t be enough to change the result though.

Comments from ex players never seems to trouble Galway when they have a competitive team so it's about time Mayo teams block out the back round noise and concentrate the game in hand.
If Mayo can't get to the intensity that Ross will bring on Sat then it doesn't reflect well where the team is at at this stage of it's rebuild!

Two media hounds looking to provide a soundbite in order to attempt to keep themselves relevant.
I am quiet certain the players can see that.

I have to say I just listened back to the Liam McHale interview at lunchtime and there wasn't much in it to be honest. He doesn't over hype Mayo or disrespect Rosscommon. Basically he said he expects Mayo to pull away in the last quarter after a tough contest due to the team's stronger bench and greater physicality. He talks of Rosccomon's talent and how it is a tough draw for Mayo in Connacht. I didn't hear anything to annoy any Mayo or Rossies but then again I have no axe to grind with big Mac.
Greater physicality yes but with the likes Enda Smith,Conor Devaney,Fintan Cregg,John McManus,Brian Stack and Donie Smith possibility to bring in Roscommon should have a strong bench also.

That is true and I think it will be a close battle, I just didn't hear McHale being disrespectful or over hyping Mayo in the interview. Probably only pissed off Galway with the comment that  this Rosscommon team should have won three Connacht titles in a row instead of one when he was with the Rossies.

Well that was scutter alright albeit he was slightly more restrained than Maughan was to be fair to him.

I read Maughan's piece yesterday and, well let's just say he is a lot more confident than myself anyway!

why not a 45 taking shout out like in the hurling, it would be more interesting?

Where did Poacher come from? I know he is a Down man but his rise to prominence with Carlow seemed to come out of nowhere! Does he have a healthy track record with any other counties or clubs?

The hotel wasn't even burned down. If you don't believe me, go to Rooskey and look at it yourself.

As I posted above it was a stupid ignorant ill informed post by myself which I apologise unreservedly.

Hopefully we dont see a dog run on pitch like in Cavan Monaghan game or else the poor auld thing could be mounted and sexually abused by Lee keegan given his past history with them ;)

Amazing you have such compassion for four legged creatures like dogs and sheep in Rosscommon but when a few people with different coloured skin seek some shelter in an empty hotel you burn the place down! Peter Casey is sure to top the polls in Sheep Stealer land anyway being a true white gael I suppose!!
could somebody get a ban for this

Hands up yes a stupid ignorant ill informed post which I apologise unreservedly for which probably deserves a ban for!!

Half way down the first page and not a mention of Ballaghaderreen, how times have changed.

We are waiting for you Rossies to give Ballagh back to us. ;)

Having caused the birth of the great Rhubarb team by losing to them in the 2011 CF.....
Wouldn't it only be fitting to be there at their death in Castlebar in 2019?

Sure we died last year in the sunshine in a traditional old style shootout in Newbridge.
Only thing you can achieve on the 25th is losing to a ghost of a good honest team!
It's the Tribesmen you should be worried about in Salthill in June not a stroll around McHale Park of a Sat evening in May! ;)

Connacht Council obviously expecting a good turnout Sunday as Season ticket holders being allocated specific seats.

Rossies are always out in force league or championship probably the most loyal fans in Connacht anyway. Maybe the fires are stirring in Lovely Leitrim with their division 4 success?

https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2018/0510/962502-report-shows-decline-in-numbers-playing-soccer/

This Sport Ireland report shows soccer as the 5th most popular participation  sport in Ireland in 2017 with Gaelic football  8th and Hurling 12th.

If Damien Duff thought the GAA were dinosaurs and archaic and awful, I wonder what he thinks about the overlords within Irish soccer.

The Irish soccer media will circle the wagons and defend Delaney, didn't Duff, Whelan, Dunphy etc brand the tennis ball protest as a disgrace or words to that effect only a few short weeks ago. All sucking from the same tit.
As opposed to the hyper critical GAA media? The soccer mefia at lesdt bothered finding Delaneys salary and expenses. Our mob have yet to bother rocking that boat

Somehow spinning this as a soccer strength, some neck on you.

"Our mob" a nice touch also.   ;D
No, I'm not. But ultimately it was tbe soccer press that did for him. His salary, the rent, the €100k. All found by the press. Can you honestly see the GAA press asking these questions?
Was it not a news journalist in the Sunday Times that revealed the story about the 100k? The rest followed on from there.
Thats a semantic point at best.

Are we all confident there isnt similar dirty linen within Gaelic Games?

Put the whataboutery Klaxon on standby there....


If there's a bit of the skullduggery financially in CP then it wouldn't be much of a surprise as although we regale with laughter at Michael HR and his parish pump politics and lax attitude to financial accountability, there's a lot like him at various levels within the GAA/FAI/IRFU/Sport Ireland and whatever other governing bodies out there.

There's almost an acceptance of a rogue in Ireland as a harmless type character with no victim and no harm done.
Of the top 3 sporting orgs the FAI is the least well run imo
they are way ahead of rugby. Outside of the pro level its a mess.
How is it a mess outside of pro level compared to amateur soccer?
