not wishing to take anything away from an impressive slaughtneil victory but that's twice I've met their supporters. we have lots of crazies in tyrone but nothing to compare to the slaughtneil loonies. is this normal In derry
With totally unbalanced comments like above, maybe you should stay hidden. The Hideout in Maghera would be perfect.  Comment analysis suggests that you do "want to take ... away" from Slaughtneil's victory as no supporters were playing and that you are jealous. How many Tyrone clubs have even been in the All Ireland final, please remind us?
it's just a question. No need to be so precious

Just thought I'd fire this in again

I know and him such a quiet wee chap not able to stand up for himself  ;)

But it has thrown a different light onto the Slaughtneil club as a whole with 2 nights of thuggery in a row. All is rosy in the garden when you are winning.
Wasn't at last nights game but they seemed at very least equally at fault, but was at the Coleraine game and possibly (just possibly) Slaughtneil could have had a couple of frees towards the end of the game. But in the last 4 years they have had more than their fair share of big calls go in their favour.
Nothing justifies a spectator and a player striking the referee.

Just saw the video. Truly shocking....but not in the least bit surprised! We've had this discussion here a few times. The Derry board need to deal with this, with social media the evidence is plain to see, so it shouldn't be as handily swept under the carpet.

I see people suggesting, seriously, that phones and cameras should be banned because its spreading this sort of thing.

Film everything, I say. Maybe then we'll get some proper punishments and by the time our under 12s are playing senior football they'll have a bit of manners and won't be trying to fight everyone in sight when they spit their dummy out.  Absolutely embarrassing behaviour.

100% right. No wonder so many drop out and clubs struggle to field from minor on. As you go up the age groups the nonsense and rubbish gets progressively worse. No respect on or off the field, no sportsmanship and a game that's becoming more and more difficult to watch.  Unfortunately it will only be when something really serious happens before action will be taken.

I think the the role of team captain should come into play here, if these types of situations continue to arise. Speaking about all clubs in the country, the on-field leader should be the man responsible for settling his team-mates, pulling them aside and speaking to them. Team management too should be tasked to do this as well, as by its very definition is management of the team.
Obviously infractions with supporters are another thing entirely, but a captain's responsibility should include the conduct of his players on the field. We see it in rugby, the captain is the spokesperson for the team to the ref, and while I'm not advocating imposing Rugby Union laws on our games, there are certainly aspects of the role of team captain that are the same.

I think Slaughtneil need to get Chrissy wheeled out in front of the camera's again to get the good PR started again

"We only have 100 families in this small parish who all speak irish, and we have no pub, but a great post office. We fatten our cattle and share them amongst everyone.  Oh and we play 3 codes, dont forget about the 3 codes!"    ::)

Chrissy to the press "No No thats not abuse our supporters are screaming at the ref, thats the native tongue and can sound like insults to the untrained ear"

Or maybe stick up a picture of some urban area - it must of been a few of those soccer type hooligans that came along to our games. Sure we're the super Gaels and far better than the likes of themuns.
