And her comment, in her own words on the answer to the freetaker situation just adds to the whole underlying belief that this was mainly about player power no matter what it has now morphed into in some peoples heads.

Looks like Cora has little or nothing substantial to add to her already light weight grievances. They tried to pull a quick one and it back fired spectacularly.  This was added to by the county board digging their heals in.

I suppose they will have built up a siege mentality now and come out all guns blazing against our ladies in the final.

As we stood up to leave, he had one more question. If I wasn't the free-taker this year, how would I feel about it? I said I wouldn't mind if I was the free-taker or not, so long as the best free-taker on the team was the person taking them. That person, I told him, was standing in front of him. And, with that, I turned and walked away.

I'm really surprised they didn't pull this bit from the book.
It puts the free-taking episode in the Connacht Final into fuller context.

It did not take siege mentality for Carnacon to hammer teams other years - so I would not get to caught up on that angle.

That extract from the independent does Leahy no harm in my views. It's baffling that she had a problem with him answering the question about her before the league final. Said nothing bad about her, brought it back to the current team and gave them a boost by complementing them. Every manager comes out and says it's about the team 20/30 people on a panel not just 15 starting or 1 player. I think it shows her mentality and how arrogant she is that she takes these comments as an attack on her rather than bringing it back to team. No problem at all with his interview with her too before coming back to the panel, laying down how he wants things this year and may have been going with a different more professional approach while also seeing her attitude towards the team which as it turns out was poisonous from everything I've seen and read.

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.

Any chance of the "journalists" that were so quick to put the boot in now print or release something to correct their mistakes?

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

Pretty sure Cora has retired herself with her behaviour this season. Why would the next manager invite that sort of distraction and ball-hog back into the team? And Leahy himself might be there for a few years yet.

I think it's the fact she has played for so long makes her feel she is the mayo football team. In relation to free taking Leahy said he had 2 players. One left footed and one right footed. That's perfectly reasonable to me.

Whatever about the other players (and I belive some will come back)its hard to see how she can come back and play for Mayo again. Without a public apology of some sort for her unsubstantiated accusations I imagine the manager won't pick her. I know I certainly wouldn't.

You see here in lies the myth. It's been a long time since Cora has been really influential for Mayo. Her greadiness has got her loads of scores for Mayo, but it has also cost us a lot of potential scores from other really talented forwards. Forward players around her have been losing confidence for years. There is no plan B with Cora. She gets the ball and it's a score, or a miss, or a free. It's hardly ever a pass or an assist.

As for the Ciaran McDonald example. Ciaran never walked out on a Mayo team a couple of days before a championship match.

Also how do you know that Grace Kelly and Sarah Rowe are presently not better free takers than Cora?
