Replying To Horsebox77:  "Hi we've all been involved in rough games and I've played in two that were abandoned and a few more that should have been. But reports from that game with Moy sound barbaric- How the ref allowed this game to proceed is mindboggling then again we weren't there - whatever about the game the attention seeking by SC is ott of it hadn't posted that picture the country would be non the wiser."
As you said it's not as if this stuff is unknown in Kerry and it happens everywhere really but in Tyrone it just seems to be on another level. I've seen Tyrone teams at all grades and I would describe there being a culture of football up there which is just unsavory and prone to this sort of stuff. I mean we can all probably recall the Derrytresk v Dromoid junior game from a few years ago, I was at the Finuge/Cookstown intermediate final in Croker in 2012 or 2013, I remember the display of the Tyrone minors (incidentally the last team to beat the Kerry minors in the Championship) in the 2013 semi-final and it was appalling cynicism. You also had their U-21's in the final against Tipp a couple of years back and that's to say nothing of their senior team which we in Kerry no all about. I see Cavanagh is talking about in game stuff that goes on in his book and it was interesting to hear the comments he has made on Mickey Harte's motivation techniques. When is the GAA going to call a stop to this off the ball carry on? Even on a more sedate level- like clockwork now you see teams that have a lead with a couple of minutes to go, dragging down and wrestling their opponents to the ground and hoping that because 8 or 10 of them are at it, the ref won't do anything - Dublin being a notable example of this "tactic".
