I agree entirely - but your whataboutery has nil relation to the question (ffs).

If an informed person could confirm it was Harrison then maybe we could conclude that Mulligan wanted to knock the wind out of possibly one of the opposition's better players on the day and if we can say that, then maybe we could all agree that manys a time we'd all have liked to knock the stuffing out of the opposition's best player.

So that's my approach here. Free the Cookstown 1.

Kevin Cassidy article saying Michael Carroll never made any allegations about what happened.

Ulster GAA's findings:

On balance of probabilities and following a review of the evidence, it was likely that some Tyrone players made unwelcome verbal comments towards the Donegal player during the game.

Both county committees and the investigation committee accept that the comments were not about the death of the player’s father.

Tyrone GAA has expressed their best wishes to the Donegal player in question. The Donegal GAA officials welcomed and thanked Tyrone GAA for their comments and have also expressed the same sentiments to all the Tyrone players. This matter is now concluded....

The Committee agreed with both County Committees that the findings will remain confidential. We would also highlight that recent media reports regarding the investigation do not accurately reflect the findings of the Committee

-----------------------------------------------------------

But don't let that get dublin7 in the way of his misinformed nonsense.
So sledging in minor football is acceptable as long as dead dads aren't mentioned, what a county.

Is that an attempt at you withdrawing your earlier statement?
If the Donegal manager feels they got sledged but the young lads father wasn't mentioned fair enough I was wrong. I still don't see how Tyrone can somehow claim the moral high ground. Sledging in minor game and so bad in an U21 game Tipp manager refuses to shake hands afterwards. Watched alot of U20 games this year and didn't see any of that from the players.

I stand by my point Tyrone have a reputation for cynicism and blaming it on Pat Spillane and his puke football comment is head in the sad stuff. Do you really think people would have believed stories about doctored bottles if it was Mayo, Kilkenny or really any other county??

You've already framed an argument on factually incorrect statements. I'm still waiting for you to retract your earlier remarks which were completely false. In the meantime you have gone off on another unsubstantiated rant to feed your prejudices. If I called you a stupid fool on a football pitch, it wouldn't be sledging, there would be a large degree of truth to it.

Tipperary boo hooed about cynicism in that game. Their methods to try and stop McShane in they match should have been awarded a distinction in dark arts.

Too many people on here want to have it both ways, I'd just rather ever teams was treated the same.

Harrison has joked with Mulligan on Twitter about it,  so I'm kinda lost
