Where has the melee gone?
« on: May 21, 2018, 10:09:29 AM »
Looks like the word has got through to the players.........get involved in a melee and you will see red.

There has been a distinct lack of melees in the games to date.

There has also been a lack of atmosphere of atmosphere in games. Linked perhaps? Its always good to get the blood boiling in the mucksavage supporters

There was zero athmosphere at Cavan v Donegal, about 500 travelled from Cavan, Donegal fans only cheered when yer man played his bagpipes. Really sad to see what the Ulster championship has become. Thankfully seemed to be more life in Clones yesterday. Bit of a row should be compulsory to liven things up.

Despite a really good game yesterday, i thought the atmosphere was pretty flat as well
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either

But is it pronounced m'lee or mellay?

That's the real question.

As Martin Kearney might say It's noticeable that the banning of the mle coincides with the demise of Armagh and Tyrone ;)
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

I'm nearly sure Ger Canning pronounces it 'mellay'.
So, in answer to your question, 'm'lee' is the correct pronunciation.

Proper brawls are few and far between at inter-county level.
Along with '96, this is probably the only other true brawl at that level.
A brawl has to include actual fisticuffs for me, none of this pulling and dragging nonsense.
