There's some time between January 8th-3rd Week in September. Player Burnout and Managers "Common Sense" should prevail -

How many of the big teams played any 1st teamers today??

Donegal played their U-21. Mayo had 10 Debutants as their All Ireland team is on Holidays in SA. Dublin had a Full reserve team out. Kerry had 1 player from their Munster Final

Tyrone started with 9 Established Players and a Further 5 on the Bench

Madness

Monaghan had a fair few starting, the 3 big counties were away on their team holidays.

I can see the value of having a few established players playing to help out the fringe players and newcomers. However the amount that played today i felt was a bit much. We are well aware of what Ronan McNabb, Tiernan McCann, Conor McAliskey etc bring to the table, why not give plenty of game time to Niall McKenna Ronan McHugh etc. They will probably start next saturday night but at the expense of McCullagh McClure etc. I dont see why they all dont get as much time as possible to impress and this might cut down on them trying to do to much to catch the eye in the time they have, as i felt happened today.

I'd give Niall Morgan another go this year. He never misses by much, the ball agonisingly glides wide as it has too much air.

Too much air between your ears more like! lol

ďItís the worst possible news that I could have hoped forĒ.  The words of Connor McAliskey tonight after it was confirmed that he has torn both the MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) and ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament).  McAliskey received the bad news tonight following an MRI scan this afternoon.  Heís expected to meet with a knee surgeon in the coming days to talk through the extent of the damage.  ďAt this stage it doesnít look good.  Itís tough to take because Iíd so much to look forward to with the Clonoe and Tyrone.  Now Iíll just have to dig in and work hard to get back to full fitnessĒ.

best of luck and speedy recovery to young mc aliskey. could this injury have been avoided or the risk lessened with a longer off season? did he play in the o fiach cup?

Best of luck to him, he'll be a big loss

Hope he takes his time coming back and doesn't rush it, Conor Clarke should be a cautionary tale for any player rushing their comeback from a cruciate injury.

We've had a good few cruciate injuries in recent years - O'Neill, McNabb, Clarke and McAliskey now.

I see Harte on about McCarron's book saying so many on the moral high ground will be in danger of falling off. Moral high ground? Harte sure does irony  ???

You need to read and clarify before you comment Longballin. He said people that are perfect ie no one basically would need to watch they don't mess up or make any mistakes in their lives. He is right, who are you or anyone to judge anyone for that matter in life ?

Conor's injury is a cruel bow to Clonoe and Tyrone as he was beginning to be a serious player for both

his use of moral high ground was priceless.... lecturing on forgiveness (apart from RTE of course), religion, the rosary and a range of other subjects  ::)

Have to agree, sick of listening to MH spout on about morals and principles etc! On another

What the odds on him being a president of Eire at some stage?! Although he'd have to maybe chat to RTE to do that!

Anyway, hopefully Conor gets the treatment he needs and doesn't rush coming back! A quality forward that Tyrone badly need at the minute, a class act!

speaking hypothetically, if tyrone go off the rails and got relegated in league would there be any way of ousting harte and replacing him before champ starts?

Absolutely gutted for Connor and terrible bad luck for Clonoe and Tyrone. Best of luck on the road back lad..

That's a major blow for 2017. Scoring options are significantly reduced with McAliskey out and it's hard to see who will fill the gap
