Mibag u still sucking on them sour grapes I see!

Lads the rules r set out in the official guide as handed out. It doesn't matter if u r squeaky clean or not the rules r the same for everyone.

I would ask why would u appeal a one game ban in the first place?

If the referee reported it as an offence carrying one game then barring a technicality or u have video to the contrary u won't get off.

Was it down to the fact grove were to play a winnable game and wanted him available had it been a top 6 team would they have appealed?!

It is a hard one to take but as hs says ring ccc and double check the rules.
It has happened before with Carey from portglenone one such example.

Bit rich coming from a know all journalist lol pot and kettle spring to mind George!

Galls haven't won a championship in 2 years and u have them for the scrap heap!

Go through every club in Ireland and there r blow ins involved at some level be it playing or management or committee level!

Jeez lads, stop pancaking about traffic. wudnt like to see u all in around the castlecourt today or tomorrow lol

there was talk at a stage that gaa would acquire ground off the boucher road & make a walkover from there to casement, crossing the motorway. not sure how true though?!

recently for the game for anto, there were shuttle buses from central station, surely something like this will be in service come match day.
u dont really expect to go to any event nowadays with some form of traffic congestion!

anyway these are merely the end of the process, i wud like to c a start happening first & foremost!!

My thoughts nearly 2 years ago & they r still the same today!! Get it approved and valid certificates and then worry about park and rides. It will work!!

we play like we did in the 1st then we wonder why the bbc dont choose to show us playing live!!

omg it was horrendous, u can say fermanagh r so many places above us in league standings, which is true & for a reason, but this was championship, what u train for all year. a bit of heart, passion & fight is all u can ask for. i hate this bit of shadowing a man, standing off him 5/10 metres, get in his bloody face, put him under the same pressure they put us. we played with sweepers yest, they needed to attack when we had the ball or at least free up others to attack. we needed to push up on the kickouts make them kick them long. better to go down fighting.

yes it got better in the 2nd half but it had to. carron tried hard, mcaleese & murray made a diff when introduced. the players were playing within themselves i think. we got back into the game then murray didnt bend his back to lift the ball, sloppy and they hit us for a goal.

we may hope for a kind draw in back door, but then everyone else will be hoping to get us!!

So it's ok for games to be called off when ur own club r running round looking them off, but not when another club is!  everybody looks after themselves.

Lads stag do, weddings, etc r now acceptable excuses for getting games called off again!

certain members of Ccc r only interested when their own club is involved.

There will be more of this as the year progresses!

Lads don't believe everything u read in the papers or on social media!

We always need someone to blame and that usually falls at the county boards door.
I am glad they have responded to the article.
I am told the players got, as the statement from county says, what they were entitled to and rightly so.
Liam doesn't mention the numerous false claims that were made, etc, etc.
players claiming for sessions they didn't even attend, taxis, etc but sure whatever u want to believe.

Glad to hear sambo is back involved, I talked about pride and passion in the game of hurling before and u won't beat him for that!

Lads to clear a few things up -

The cushendall money story is true

The county hurlers betting against their own team is true

PJ jumping before being pushed is true

The south Antrim game that was abandoned was to be replayed at St galls pitch but they declined that offer and were hence threw out of the competition. St. John's went on to play in the south Antrim final which was to manus bewilderment refereed by a North Antrim referee.

We can brush the whole lot under the carpet or make sure it doesn't happen again!! Ivan be sure if it were certain clubs time wouldn't be wasted in dealing with it.

I don't think withdrawing from Christy ring will solve the problem. We have cushendall and creggan players to come on board now have we not?! Along with the honest players who were not involved in the whole debacle!

Weed out all involved and move forward.

Saffron vision ala our county board need to stand up and be counted now. I wondered how and why the hurlers were getting overnight stays but the footballers weren't, results prove it isn't best option or way to spend ur budget.

The cushendall story is unfortunately not a joke either.

Games abandoned pre-season also doesn'take good reading for the start of the club season.

Pride & passion for the game of hurling are a log way down some peoples list of objectives of late, time for that to be changed.

after 2 wins out of 2, we cant have any complaints, yes you would like the football to be better but it is still winter football.

some things never change in this county, ppl complained about the fixtures last year, now this year before a ball is even kicked they are complaining again!! if u knew what all was involved in putting them together. everyone knows the start dates, which your clubs agreed.

on another note, its great to c mibags mate back involved again, obviously too much time on his hands after retiring from refereeing. no doubt he will right all the wrongs he pointed out in a local paper before his retirement. dont worry he wouldnt be one to hold a grudge so he wouldnt lol
funny how they make up positions for some ppl and saffron vision gave off about career gaa men, seems to me that there r plenty of hangers on in their camp who want to be involved but dont want to do a job. fixtures and ccc is one such example.

but sure its early days, give them a chance!

Bannside while all ur points r valid, u can hardly say a hometown decision when u r promoting players from ur own club to replace them lol
i do agree dermot is becoming an awesome player for club and hopefully county too. still only 21/22!!
its great to have such a strong squad, everyone on the squad would merit a starting place on their day. i wouldnt be one for putting idle threats out there that if they dont get on they wont hang about, bit early in the year for that, maybe the university boys r being eased into it.
when i looked at the team before the game, i wondered who would be our scoring forward, conor murray & mick did most of the damage!
it was great to see all our scores came from play, 1-12! (correct me if i am wrong)
no goals conceded also a bonus.

every game is a championship game to get out of the basement division!

on the club scene, club championship draws r on tonight, lets hope the top seeds get their rightful place in the same pot lol

our pro will undoubtedly keep us well up to date as it happens, who needs jim white & the transfer window ha ha

U might c his brother later when u r down the casement social club, as far as I know he still works behind the bar!

The men that r in the positions on the county will hopefully do the right thing after consulting with all relevant and realise that maybe there doesn't need a lot of knee jerk reactions. As I said before a tweak here or there will do the same job!

stupid idea if u ask me!
wouldnt happen on wee joes watch, in fact it didnt happen as he turned this proposal down numerous times from the st aggies man who tried to propose it, who is now on board the cc and will put his mad plans in place!

will clubs be happy to play without their county players also?!

who will support our county teams if club games r fixed for same days, times, etc.

no mid week games is the cause of starting this early, the idea is to play games friday and sundays. can of worms.
makes absolutely no sense at all & doesnt take juvenile divisional board fixtures into consider at all, but sure let he tear at it, good luck to them when they have to refix alot of games and dont end up with leagues completed on time.

leave it as it was, a tweak here or there would be suffice. the county managers hadnt even been consulted about it, so needless to say they will have their say on it.

hopefully it gets sorted shortly!!

the dust has settled now after convention, well done to all the successful candidates but it is nice to see one of our county players paying tribute to the outgoing men. some had v long service to our county and deserve thanks for taking on jobs when nominations werent forthcoming from clubs. our new county board will hopefully right a few wrongs of the past few years and good luck to them. it is our county so we all hope we can be proud of it again and make news for the right reasons!
