Replying To HighStoolBandit:  "Another 2 years of this Tyrone County Board. All until Mickey finds a team like in the 2000's. The fun has gone out of football in Tyrone. Machines not skill. Back to the big fortress on the hill eh Mickey."
Exactly this.

After some of the decision making by that referee I don't blame McEntee one bit, the decision at the end was criminal as was the penalty incident

I actually thought it was a very entertaining game of football. The standard wasn't great at all times but there was some fine scores and it was very exciting.

On another note, does anybody know if the Tyrone supporter who was arrested for flying the Palestine flag but up any resistance?

If he did not then the way he was hand cuffed and treated was totally disgusting.

Great effort by Meath,should have seen it out at the end of normal time. Desperately unlucky.

Championship is still totally flawed,should be played in a group format based on league standings(six groups of five,two of six, and knockout thereafter) where teams like Meath would improve even more. Two championship matches and gone,not right at all.
Could well happen to us as well. Two championship matches in summer is a disservice for all the effort.

Are you serious? Meath were robbed at the end of that game, traoning since the depths of winter for a ref to make such a bad call... I don't blame him one bit.

It also appears a Tyrone fan was arrested by Gardaí for waving a Palestinian flag, that's a disgrace if true.

Some people need to get over themselves. He went over to remestrate with the red after the trip was ignored. And he was robbed of at least another ten mins extra time. Bloody disgrace. Andy has taken dogs abuse from some so called Meath fans. He was bloody right and if many could have got out of stand Andy would have been least of the Rossies worries.

Was a fairly good match, think the Ref should learn how to use the advantage rule and maybe take a trip to the opticians though.

Poor stuff from Tyrone. They are still miles off being genuine all Ireland contenders. They need to unearth a few quality forwards. How they'd love to have a Steven O'Neill and a Brian dooher now (well anyone would I suppose!)
Meath put in a good effort and unlucky not to get that free at the end. Yet again their fitness levels looks inferior to most of the country.
Out of curiosity can anyone tell me who they've beaten in the cship since the famous Leinster win against Louth?

We lost that game in normal time, we need to look at ourselves. We can't control what refs do and bawling a ref out of it at the end of a game is pointless. It won't change the result. I'd prefer how Derek McGrath handled the situation after the ghost goal.

I understand Andy being frustrated and I do not have a huge problem with his actions although I also cannot condone it.

However in the cold light of day he will have to seriously look at himself and his contribution to how the team have played this year. It is easy to look at that one performance and think that it shows improvement in the team but it does'nt. It only papers over the cracks that have been glaringly obvious all year.

Yes the team showed great heart and yes they possibly should have won it in normal time but this has been a dismal year for us and there is no improvement being made at all.

Bigger teams are vulnerable in the first round of qualifiers (They have bigger expectations at the start of the season), and with Tyrone having Harte suspended and some other key players out injured (And Cavanagh playing though obviously not right), and then kicking a load of wides and missing a host of goal chances, they were extremely vulnerable.

Yet we still could not beat them.

Yes we showed great heart but I expect that as a given, and yes their fitness may have improved but in this day and age thats a minimum we should expect.

The simple fact is that under Andy we have not improved.

If he stays another year he must bring in some coaching expertise and they must be allowed to put their stamp on things. Great managers can and must delegate and i think Andy has to demonstrate that he is flexible enough to do this.

The performance may have papered over the cracks, but the result is devastating for Meath football.

Talk about a sore loser. Looked very bad both O'Sullivan and Glynn having to restrain Andy, Meath had a great chance in normal time to win but sadly we didn't have the cuteness or know how to get over the line.
It's been a shocking year for the Meath senior and while there were some positives tonight the reality is we lost again.

How did they miss the 4 goal chances, 12+ wides and 3/4 off upright, with 3/4 key players out? Very lucky indeed.

Difference being Waterford were not eliminated.
Meath were robbed this evening, They faced a superior team and pushed them all the way.
They have every right to feel agrieved, Mcentee strikes me as a fair guy and out of character to loose it unless it warranted it.

The only people that were robbed were us at home waiting for the Hurling to start and had to endure extra time of that drivel and miss the first 25 mins of Kilkenny and Wexford.

I heard bits from the end of the first half and the extra time on the radio, didn't see any of the game. Banty reckoned the ref did Meath no favours. I can see people's point on Andy McEntee complaining to the ref at the end. But I don't agree with them. He's shown some passion and anger about the result and it means something to him and his players even if they should have put more on the scoreboard. Meath underage is looking up. Hopefully this incident blows over very quickly. It'd be an awful shame for a few geese in the county board pay heed to the likes of Twitter and put McEntee's job under pressure.
