There were some really good draws last night but Down GAA tell everyone the draw is live at 9pm then post a video a good hour after this. It just looks so amateur and there is no reason someone could have recorded that with their phone and done a live feed on Facebook.
I am sure out of the members of the PR team that someone should have recognized this and realized that here was an opportunity to capture GAA folk for an hour or so. But at least the top 4 balls were cold and these two fixtures should get the coffers rolling again.

Without fail, the county board are accused on here every year of either a) keeping the big guns apart to get a more lucrative latter stages, or b) drawing the big guns together for a lucrative early round gate.

Which one is it lads? It canít be both. Which f**king one is it?

It was laughable the Facebook said that they couldnít meet indoor when the executive announced Monday that 6 people from different households could meet indoors, and there was no social distancing during the draw anyways  ??? But anyways season starts from today, full contact training allowed and matches in 5 weeks, good to have the pitches open for a kick about again

Alright Wobbler calm done will you, that was tongue in cheek but the point I was alluding to was the draw not being live. Opportunity was missed. 9pm on a Tuesday with nothing else on. A perfect chance to capture an audience.

An opportunity for what exactly? To prolong a draw unnecessarily telling us news we already know?

Maybe itís just me is more interested in the outcome, than the actual process, Downjim.


The county board officials are neither actors nor performers. They donít put on a show and with the greatest respect to them (for itís true even at the highest rung of county GAA draws) they look stiff and worried during live draws.

You can talk about transparency, and you do have a point. But thereíll be talk of heated balls all the way from Moygannon to Grinan today. Mainly because like in actual GAA matches, everyone seems to think itís a f**king conspiracy against them unless things pan out exactly as they want.

Opportunity for a bit of PR, to put our county out there. A lot of people were waiting to watch the draw and I believe that is were the confusion came from. When they are waiting on their phones/laptop for an hour with nothing happening they get confused and then things are not clear people speculate. Its simple things like this that could be tidied up. 
I am looking forward to the draws, the back door will give teams another chance and probably the top 4 teams in the county are going to. It will give us all something to look forward to after a boring few months.

What a shambles last night was! Such a bad look for our CB. In the lashing rain.

Anyone able to post the photo of the Down u17/u19s training in Rosstrevor last week? Obviously no adherence to social distancing with 30-40 young lads on the 1 pitch.
