This is rubbish.

Do you really think Mickey Harte, or indeed any top manager, has got to where they are without being aware of the personalities and their backgrounds in their panels? Do you think that Mickey Harte is making a concerted effort to get his panel to mass, and that he'd make the same effort to apparently convert a non-catholic? It is a pre-game ritual that works for the members of that panel. If the make-up of the panel was such that it wouldn't work, I've no doubt Mickey would identify that and alter it. His job, and one he is keenly aware of, is to win football matches.

Fact of the matter is, you all seem to be taking mass a lot more seriously than anyone I know who attends.

I also find it interesting that it is the mass the focus is on. If actually interested in the Tyrone panels inclusiveness, there are other more controversial examples - the only issue of course, is that Mickey Harte couldn't be made the target for those.

You need to open your mind! That's the same kind of argument that was used in institutionally sectarian organisations in Northern Ireland where people simply couldn't see why how there may be an issue with carrying on exclusively protestant or unionist practices. 

To your final point - what are they?

Sean Cavanagh, a three-time All-Ireland winner with Tyrone, said despite some players not wanting to go to Mass before a big game, no-one objected to their devout Catholic manager’s wishes of attending Mass before every championship game.

While admitting that he thinks religious beliefs should be private, Cavanagh, a practising Catholic, made it clear that he had no problem with Harte sharing his faith with the team and acknowledged that it actually helped bring the team closer together.

“No-one on our team objected to it,” Cavanagh told Irish sports journalist Paul Kimmage in an interview published in The Sunday Independent.

“Did everyone want to go to Mass before big games? No they didn’t, but it maybe suited us at times in that it brought us closer together,” he added. “I’m a practising Catholic so it didn’t bother me but I can see how others might have an issue with it. I think religion is a private thing, I would never push it on anyone.”
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Well then he has a lot to answer for as captain, knowing this, but never raising it with the manager.

He knows he dare not defy the dictator harte or even bring up the issue for someone else. He really does seem to run a regime of fear.

Read Harte’s book. RE sectarianism. One of his best friends is a Presbyterian.

Who doesn't run a dictatorship? Name one successful manager who doesn't? He's the manager, it's his call. You'd think by talking to you Dublin and the likes run some sort of utopian system where everyone has equal say.

Lad that's awful rubbish. This effects more than his 1 team, it effect the wider Tyrone, Ulster and GAA. It's unacceptable carry on. If you can't see the long term damage this could do you must be blind. Maybe Tyrone are missing out on a top protestant forward who's heard about Mickey set up and doesn't fancy being the odd one out.
