Tough on Slaughtneil. O'Leary hit Cassidy a slap on the head while he was down and the midfielder reacted to that. Linesman didn't spot the slap.
By the way Lenny, why did you include Rawhide's quote in your post?

Didn't mean to, was just commenting on the football today.

Odd how the cynicism only gets mentioned when Slaughtneil are on the receiving end of it. Crokes were very cynical,  and it was horrible to watch, but Slaughtneil employ similar tactics on a regular basis. At least be consistent in complaining about it rather than letting your clear bias influence when you speak out.

Hard luck to Slaughtneil today, sad end to a great journey. However there achilles heel over the years of bad discipline came back to haunt them today. That's what will annoy Mickey Moran the most tonight. He thought he had stamped that out of them.

Congratulations to the convent. History makers.

Yes. Great win for the convent boys in the McRory cup. Some investment to bring in young Devlin to train them. Have to give it to Derry County Board too. I hear they pay half of his salary. Not too often I praise them lol. St Pius's will be kicking themselves today. Heard they  had the chance to have Devlin at their school for football and turned him down. Bad decision there boys. Yous could be bringing the McLarnon cup home too.

St Mary's advertised a post for a Gaelic Football Coaching officer last summer. Nowhere was it specified that this role would be funded in any way by the County Board. Devlin applied for, and got the job, St Pius X have nothing to do with it.

You seem to know your stuff estimator. But do you not know that before jobs go into papers they have to be discussed. I heard that the county board approached both schools and the coordinator was to work between the 2 schools.

Good luck to Derry today. Looking forward to meeting up with Stallion and wildweasel here. In the N83 boys, catch Mass in the Cathedral and a bite to eat in the Galway Roast. Make sure you've packed your bagful of criticism.

I'm not sure why you are persisting with speculating on where I spend my free time, but to be clear I have no desire to spend time in the company of idiots like you.

Not sure what the relevance of that is but we'll add forgetfulness to your list of problems.

3 points up with 15mins to go, give away 3 goals, 5 in total and another penalty saved, shocking stuff, never seen Derry teams give away so much scores, time for a change now!! there no point waiting to get beat out of the field against Tyrone.

Just the 5 goals today I see. Is this part of the tactical masterplan?

Galway 5-15 Derry 2-15. Not often you score 2-15 and get beat.no blanket defences in that game.does that leave Derry bottom now with Fermanagh winning and cork drawing.
you've only had enough to drink when you cant hold onto the ground

We conceded an average of 19 points in league and championship last year, given that and the way we chucked away an all ireland QF place against Tipperary you could be forgiven for thinking the main priority of the management would be to get a defensive system in place and work on it the following year

But no, not in Derry. Instead Barton and Co have went one better and left us so wide open that after 5 league games we've conceded and average of 20.6 points per game

Absolutely ridlcous. I'd make a change now, try and limit the damage and embarrassment that the ulster championship will be

We conceded that 19 point average last year with a full squad of players. Nine of those regular staters are missing this year. 1.6 more with rookies? Not a big deal.
