Bend you back's first post has been firmly criticized. And the points of criticism are probably fair. But I would like to say that in the interests of Devil's advocate that I thought at least some points in the post were valid.

He said he agreed with some of the points, not them all.

Seen as there's no sign of any Down man on the Mayo v Down thread, I'm wondering if there will be many Down people at the game on Sunday?

Don't be under any illusions about our secretary, if you think he has no influence in selecting team managers , why is he on every selection panel, if you think he wasn't involved in Burrenbridge why was he and the then chairman involved in all the negotiations that ultimately put us in such a dire financial state.
He may be a very hard working secretary and good at administration,but he has a bad track record when it comes to dealing with football matters and clubs in general.
Again I state we need an independent review with the findings made public and the recommendations carried out.We need to ensure no county executive member be on any future selection committee when county team managers are sought.
Contrary to the wishes of the executive the clubs have to have the last say when it comes to getting quality people in , and the implementation of a coherent strategy in respect of coaching in schools and clubs.People in paid positions have to be accountable and a record taken if what they have achieved and whether they are giving value for money and deserve to be in the positions they presently occupy.

Lads, not a peep about the Mayo game on here, I just think we have given up.  The County Board can't even be bothered naming a team so why exactly would anyone travel to Mayo, is this how the Down Way plays out?  You look at the teams named in various media outlets but no, thats not the way we do things in Down.  If there is a wrong way of doing anything, you can be assured that we will find it.

I think the lack of talk in here about it will be your answer.

Are we the only team in Ireland that do not name a team before national league games?
We named one pre Donegal but after that no team has been released.I think everyone even our PRO has given up on this season.So depressing

Mid West Radio report five late changes to the named Down side, which sounds a little unusual. McKibben, Brown, Poland, Mallon and Dornan were brought in, but we were not told who dropped out.

The Down GAA Twitter feed can't even be bothered giving score updates from the game, they just seem satisfied to retweet Mayo GAA's team announcement on the Mayo panel and that's all. Sums it up.


1-07 to 0-04 after COC scores a penalty for anyone unfortunate enough to be relying on Down GAA to update you.
