He was easily wound up with what appeared to be a reasonable question.

Id imagine it was the frequency of the same question that was the straw that broke the camels back. Well never go all out attack but we are playing with slightly more adventure, for example, weve been playing with a two man FF line for the majority of games this year and are using the early kick pass into the FF more frequently.

I think what kills him is he has to know himself how Gavin and the Dubs completely mugged him off.

The obvious change this year is in itself an admission that the style last year was flawed. His attempt to argue that Tyrone were playing a similar style to other teams is bizarre. It's like the folk at teamtalk posting pictures of Dublin with all of their men in their own half and suggesting that it was the same as Tyrone. Yes everyone pulls all their players back at times now, but the Tyrone style of the past two years was based on trying to take the extreme Donegal model and making it more defensive. It was a flawed system and there was never any evidence it could beat one of the top teams.  Tyrone would have beaten all the sides they won against last summer playing a more open style, and they would almost certainly have been more competitive against Dublin having more of a go too. Their style of play meant they were effectively beaten before 10 minutes were played. Embarrassing stuff for the manager, probably no surprise he is a bit touchy about it.
