They were 6/4 this morning on Paddy power someones been reading the forum 😂

Youíve got to keep that stuff off line lol!

A great value bet is Keady tbh.. weíll give it a lash and see but Iíve said before weíve not beaten them.. see McCormack was on team of the week, he must be near my age !

He's not that old  ;D late 30's maybe.

He'd be 39-40.

Aye and MR2 is of a later vintage, a fine vintage all the same.   ;)

Don't think the bould PJ is with Keady this year, he was last year IIRC.

He's only a nipper ffs! Oh to be 39 or 40 again!

Can you remember that far back lad????

On reflection, the ban fro next year's championship is quite lenient. Neither team would be serious contenders, nor be expected to progress far. With the back door, it's a loss of 2-3 games at most

My take also. Very lenient. Ban both clubs from every competition for the maximum period permitted. And ban identifiable individuals for the same length of time.

Very easy to do with few county men involved. (And, therein lies the real issue).

BTW, same punishment with recent rows in other counties, including my own.

Do the current rules allow this?

If they don't, they should be amended to do so. The Harps and RGU folk would think several times before jumping the wire again.

I donít doubt it. But would the county board get away with it? Didnít the GAA basically make up a rule for TMcCann after hair gate and that didnít stick?

I could very safely take money from Powers on whether or not they will be banned from the championship, in fact ill guarantee they will be playing. The Ulster Council will not uphold the bans

Playwiththewind1st.  Wise up. Ref hadnít a clue simple as that. One example. He gave a free for a throw ball from 20 yards away and directly behind the player. How would he see if the ball was thrown or hand passed. Plus he had to see through two other players.

how the hell can you comment on what the ref did or didn't see? have you some sort of technology that lets you do this?

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.

You might also find that next year the county team could be short a few of its regular starters though

Lol. I can barely use a phone now im hacking accounts. Did tou know i also posioned the skripals???  Lol.   Speak to your mate & get them to put it back up. This is gettin tiresome. Denying something i have been defending all day. Get him to edit it & re post if he likes. Ive never been in a real saga before. I feel violated lool

Iím using this great proverb.

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.


MR2 you'd be better saving your breath, you're not gonna get through this idiots thick skull. As someone who has been in the middle with you there, and who has done the line for you, I have nothing but the utmost respect not only for you as a ref, but also as someone who has had the guts to come on here where most know who you are, which in itself leaves you open for attacks by people like this clown. The fact you are having to teach people the rules, even though they (he) thinks they know them better than you, highlights one of the major problems within our games. I applaud you for standing your ground and explaining your decisions, and you were 100% right in saying that refs make mistakes, just not as much as the players. Unfortunately as a ref you cannot, and will not, win. You'd be better leaving it stand with this boy, he can't be turned no matter how wrong he is.

All referring appointments at this stage should go before the CCC to ratify, well that's what happens in other counties but then again in Antrim who knows?

All appointments go through CCC here in Antrim also, that answer your post? There are no weaker teams, if one team loses a semifinal then they lost it cause they were the weaker team on the day, if a man goes down in the box and itís a penalty, itís becsuse itís a penalty... ffs lads get a grip and wind your suspicious minds in.

All referees that I know at this stage are gearing up to perform at the big games, to actually be completely biased in a match would jeopardise any chance they would have if getting games of any importance..

Basically youíre calling a ref a cheat. Some buck ejjits out there are actually doing it online here and have yet to be called out by their online clubmen on here. Shows you the level of paranoia this goes to

If you had to appoint the referee for  Championship Semi -Final .. would you select a referee from a club , who are in the other semi final ... just asking ?
what makes u ask?

LOL youre being facetious my friend, this guy is claiming that because Glenravel are in the other semifinal that the Glenravel referee doing his match will be harsher on them......hes a numpty. The ref in question I've known for a very long time, its not in his make up to do that, very fair ref

Why would that be an issue? Just asking

Possible conflict of interest for appointed referee.   Maybe not impartial enough .... just saying ...

Still donít get it, conflict of interest? Is he refereeing his own club?
There u go MR2.....

Conflict of interest.....

A situation in which a person is in a position to derive personal benefit from actions or 'decisions' made in their 'official capacity'

that help...?

Still struggling with it. As the only benefit a ref would have would be to ref his own club. Are saying there are refs out there that would deliberately biased against certain clubs?

Because they are winning.

People always sneered and hated the Dubs, its just gone up a notch now since the winning.

I enjoy it and prefer not to be liked. Makes winning and wiping the floor with teams all that sweater.

I don't think you fully understand the problem.  Unless something changes, you won't have any teams to wipe the floor with.  You are killing the goose, so-to-speak.  And that affects everyone, including the Dubs. 

2040 AIF - Dublin beat Kerry by thirteen points in front of 11,500 in Parnell Park to complete the 26 in a row.  (Croke Park was unavailable due to the One Direction revival concert)  David Clifford's son retires after the game, aged 22, declaring that he has signed a professional contract with current LoI champions Glentoran.  FM104 carry a full match report but it's a bit-part story on RTE Sport.  There are extended highlights on TG4 at 11.45pm though.  Incidentally, their hurlers have just won their third in a row, and eighth in the past ten years, having beaten Limerick in a dour affair in a dilapidated Thurles. *

*This may be a bit far fetched, but hopefully you get the point.

I hope this comes true :)

Saw a tour guide with a bunch of rain soaked Americans the other day at the top of Donegall place pointing down the street saying "this is Belfasts biggest shopping street, we will meet back here in an hour".
She was deadly serious too. I pitied them.

Victoria Square would be the biggest shopping area in Belfast, well the area with the most amount of retailers and decent places to eat!

that's gonna change soon, "Royal Exchange", the area from Royal Avenue round to North Street and Donegall Street, will be given the go ahead to be redeveloped. this will involve lots of demolition, realigning roads and rebuilding

Barry Cassidy and Anthony Nolan are the All Ireland football semi final referees this year. That summarises where we are at.

As an ex-Ref, and someone who has feet in both camp on AIF day, i thought Barry was outstanding on Saturday, Anthony less so

Barry is the worst ref i have seen over the last few years. He is disgracefully bad tbh.

definitely do not agree with you, there are a whole lot worse than him
