Have you ever been wrong ?

Hoganstand is a great place for lads coming on to say I told you so , some I believe have a bank of old posts to lay their hands on just in case , however as in life everyone is wrong as often as right , so tongue in cheek what's your worst gaff ever , keep it GAA or sport related.. GAA completely wrong on Michael Fitzsimonns , never thought he'd amount to much last year . About six seven years ago I said B Cody and Kilkenny were finished. But my biggest misjudgement I told all my mates when a certain Tiger Woods turned professional that he was overrated all hype opps.

Great Thread! Have always backed Cavan, no matter how unlikely a result, but I suppose that's true of most fans. I've backed Mayo for Sam for each of the last 4 years - and already have done so for 2017!

I have on occasion doubted stephen cluxtons place on the Dubs team. Everytime i have done so i have ended up with egg on my face, the weekend just gone being another example. This utter legend of a man continues to make a fool of me! Cluxton #1legend

I'm still number one with Tiger won't amount to much, thinking back I once backed Shane Ryan for first goal scorer must have been under the influence for that one .

My father is a snooker fan and was a big Stephen Hendry Fan when a certain Ronnie O'Sullivan came on the scene he said he wont amount to anything and would never win a world title!!! He called that right...

Every year I think this is the year I will hit single figures in golf. Every year I am spectacularly wrong.....

I was assured and convinced that the Back Door system when introduced almost 20 years ago would work well to the benefit of weaker counties, unfortunately I was right, and it did, - - - - It kept us weak.!!

I never predict Mayo to win an all Ireland but I hope they do so I'm conflicted

Given that Donegal supposedly are a team in transition, I thought Tyrone should have had a reasonable chance of beating Donegal by a point or two in a competitive encounter at the weekend. I was completely wrong. We were outclassed on the day.

Until about the age of 16 I always went to Ulster championship games believing Antrim were going to win. We did only once in that whole time vs Down in 2000, what a day! Half time went on for about 40 minutes because of the driving hail stones.

The appointment of Pete McGrath as Fermanagh manager. Like the Down county board I thought he was yesterdays man...although I do like to remind my Down friends of that statement from their county board.

At the time I wasn't happy with the appointment of Pat Gilroy and gave the DCB a bit of stick for yet again appointing the wrong man What a plonker!!

I used to go out with a girl years ago, she was a bit moody. When I asked her what was wrong she used to say nothing and I believed her, I was wrong.

After the League Final in 2011 I declared to everyone that Dublin were going nowhere. Did the same after a laboured win in the Leinster Final that year against Wexford.
