He's been very diplomatic. I think you listen to that it's clear what happened.

He is, held his station! He knows there are good players with Carnacon that could come back and add to the team and he does not want to burn that bridge.

Looks like Cora has been telling a few fibs. Looks like two players were told their roles in the team had changed and these players were not happy - and decided to take things into their own hands - use their power drag a few players down with them and it backfired.

This is the first time they have encountered a manager strong enough to make big decisions and wade it out.

It looked like this would go away, only for the County Board to also grow a pair and firmly put Carnacon in its place.

Cora ''opened her mouth to wide'' last week and she could live to regret some of the strong accusations she made.

Did Leahy say that?

Well he said he had  no intention of doing an interview on it until Cora said the players were not in a safe environment so I think it's reasonable to surmise she opened her moith too wide.
No that wasn't a quote from him, He did say what she said on OTB was libelous.
The most disappointing thing for me, in a list of disappointing things coming out of this was the allegation that for up to 2 or 3 days before the Cavan game players were getting texts encouraging them to jump ship and saying "sure they wont be able to field if ye pull out". Disgusting if true.
Based on Peter Leahys side of the story, which appears to be collaborated by the county board actions in sanctioning Carnacon and the players statement this was a pure childish reaction from some quarters to changes in the structure and way things were done that they didn't like and it has just escalated and escalated. unless there is a climb down from one side of embarrassing proportions I wouldn't be surprised if this ended up in court.
Listened to this last night, was interesting, seemed to be suggesting that there were two players that were behind it all.
Wouldn’t take a whole lot of detective work to reveal the two, had it worked out before I was told for definite. A sorry end to both of their football careers with Mayo if it’s stays the way it is now....

I think people are jumping to conclusions about what happened ,
the rumors go.....
It is possible that some players felt it was an unhealthy environment and there personal choices beyond football were being Questioned in an unfair manner and convinced they club mates to support them . I am hearing it is very personal to the players involved and they don't want it to be known publicly and there probably are some mayo team mates not aware of the full story and I doubt if the whole story will ever officially be know .
but if what im hearing is true if they don't want further exposure they should have kept stum after initial statement rather than throwing aspersions accidentally or otherwise . but no illegal activity is being alleged AFAIK

But they are the ones being cagey and using words like 'unhealthy' and 'very personal' implies so much.

If these issues are serious enough to cause a mass walk-out in the first place they should surely let their own team-mates or the liaison officer know??

The timeline that we have seems to be it became unsafe, unhealthy and not nice all of a sudden. Getting on to your own team-mates to drop off and forfeit a game is hardly helping their case, or making for a good 'environment'.

I usually am a 'jury is out' man on these things, but only one side has given a clear side of events and that was Leahy. If something was so serious that it forced half a squad out, they should be fuckin screaming blue murder and Leahy and his team should be ran from the association.
And yet we wait...and still we hear whispers and implications...
them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

again if rumours are to be believed is because its a very delicate subject which publicizing would  possibly being non football people and non football related matters into full view . which would be unfair but they still want to get the point across that they found the situation unacceptable .
they should have choosen their words better as those work are normally used a code for sex abuse which is not the case I believe

Sounds like saying enough to keep casting aspirations on the management team, without giving any actual information.

It's an absolute disgrace that these women have put something out there that has lead to all sorts of nudge-nudge, no-smoke-without-fire etc. type rumours.

I haven't heard any rumours but to refer to "an unsafe environment" does suggest something of a sexual nature.

Time for Cora and Co to be damn specific on what the feck thay are referring to.

If I was Leahy I would contact a solicitor to start the slander process

After seeing how the Serena Williams incident in the US Open was somehow spun into a sexism issue, I can understand why everyone in Mayo is treading very carefully around these allegations.
If you are overly forceful in rubbishing them, then that becomes the story.
Sounds like Leahy struck the right tone in his interview.
Let the media glare focus on the Carnacon players now and the obvious questions should follow.

I think Cora and Cornacon were playing that card a bit too, knowing that Leahy and Co would be the baddies...and they f**king were!
Sinead Kissane and others wrote pieces heavily in their favour. Cora was on Off the Ball twice.
Now we see the tide turning and they might not enjoy their use of loaded words like unsafe.
them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

no a bluffer just passing on the guts of a rumor pointing out that. were are not in a position to jusge and take sides as  its not always a simple thing to tell the whole story when others are involved and do not not want the subject of the story to become known , this is only 50% a football story .
. yes it did all start with Cora being left off the starting 15 but the management reaction to protests from the carnacon were not seen as appropriate and the carnacon contingent believes aspersions were being made regarding some of their players .and the walkout was decided on by players from carnacon other than Cora ,

Off the ball were continuing to toe the Cora line on the wireless last night. Nathan Murphy and Maria Thresa whatever her name is either a) didnt listen to the interview with peter leahy despite the fact that they spent 20 minutes commenting o it or b) since they decided to jump on the "back Cora" bandwagon with their softly softly interviews early on in this process couldn't possibly open their mind that their were two sides to the story.
