Come Back Mayo All Is Forgiven - 10 Like(s)
Said in jest meant in earnest , interesting I've heard more postitives about Mayo in last couple of days than when they were actually playing, I'm reminded of the lad who's injured and every time his team loses his stock goes threw the roof , of course I'm writing prior to the final but I have to say none of the teams looking to dethrone Dublin are within an arses roar of Mayo at there best , they were monster unlucky with injuries this year and truth be told in need of a rest , the championship needs them to comeback in 2019 regardless of who's champions , championship needs quality and only a fool would argue Mayo in full flow don't have it

Who Can Challenge Dublin In 2019 - 9 Like(s)

Replying To legendzxix:  "Can you just winter well?!"
Not a problem , if you guys can give up telling porkies on sports science , underage development and what's been done by all counties, I've been told I shouldn't go on about my son playing in development squads , yet he's one of these guys that is supposed to be getting super dietary advice and free meals , superior sports science training and in latest post potentialy paid so he or players like him don't go to Aussie , so let me ask you bearing in mind I have first hand experience when I read lies I should just sit and say nothing , I have no issue with the GAA looking at funding and redirecting funds if it's felt for the better of the game they are best served elsewhere, I am happy to play as many games away from Croke Park , but I won't sit winter or summer and have lies told by fellas who have a smidge of knowledge but pass themselves off as experts, if I asked what FMS is and how many disciplines there are to it how many could answer before reaching for google

Total Indifference! - 9 Like(s)

Replying To Ulsterman:  "Outside of Dublin and Mayo I don't think I have ever encountered as much apathy, indifference and disinterest at an All Ireland final as this one. I was talking to a few Meath fellas in Scotland at the weekend and they had the same attitude. Shrugged their shoulders and said "the game is dying on it's proverbial in Leinster. Dublin this year, Dublin next year and Dublin for the next 10 years"."
If you had come across the opposite would you have started a post on it ??? I somehow doubt it with your track record. I watched every final regardless of who's been in them for the last 44 years , I watch the hurling which my county are never in , and I will watch the minor final on Sunday , you see your either a whinger or a fan , with the likes of you we will never win because if we win the Nostradamus of the North will be on with his customary we'll done to be followed with endlessl posts of what he really thinks , and if we lose you will probably slate us for being overrated and gym monkeys , you see sooner or later you become predictable which my boy you really are

Hurling Gets All The Plaudits But Is It Played Within The Rules? - 8 Like(s)

Replying To mayomanic:  "As we look forward to 2019 all the talk is centered on the football code and the recent rule changes. as always we'll have a mixture of good and bad, the good possibly being the offensive mark and limiting the hand pass with the bad having to go forward from a line ball and the sin bin (I just hate the sin bin in any sport including Rugby) it just leads to a lull in the game where most viewers are just hoping it ends without influencing the result of the game too much and without VAR it's a cop out for refs and it'll lead to much debate. Hurling on the other hand gets all the plaudits but is the game played within the rules? I don't think so. Its common place now for players to take 7,8,9 steps in most situations, throwing the ball is now accepted by all refs, anything goes in the tackle and something needs to be done regarding the scoring zone. Why anyone would wish to play in the full back or full forward lines in hurling is beyond me as the ball just keeps going over their heads. Its not a skill any more to hit a ball from sixty, seventy yards over the crossbar and its ruining the game. where would the great inside forwards such as Nicky English, pat fox, jb murphy, noel lane, eddie brennan, tony doran, tomas mulcahy, joe deane etc fit in to the modern game today? and finally aside from croke park and maybe semple the smaller provincial pitches are not suitable for inter county hurling today. when you pare it back and take away the crazy tackling (UFC with sticks) the overzealous and often embarrassing punditry of the likes of tommy walsh, micheal duighan and john mullane it's not what it's made out to be."
Congrats for living up to my life long belief that even the village idiot is entitled to his opinion, your comment is not worthy of debate

All Ireland Final 18 - Dublin V Tyrone - 7 Like(s)

Replying To Cavan_Shambles:  "Dublin by 5. The four in a row is inevitable, and it won't stop there. Until the GAA addresses the farcical financial imbalance we're going to see this unfair Dublin dominance continue. Thankfully fans are starting to vote with their feet as evidenced by the paltry semi-final attendances. The message to the GAA is simple, sort out the Dublin debacle."
care to answer Dublin's performance in recent years at under age ? If money brings success I'm dying to hear your expert analysis on underage lack of success, or do you read in here catch the sound bites you like and regurgitate them as your own. Money has won nothing basic skills superior coaching from Gavin a volunteer, you could show some respect and recognize it , or go for lazy cliche posts. The reason i probably prefer hurling at the moment is posters like you don't exist in that code , best team tends to win and get recognized for it , and don't have to listen to the crap you come out with some how trying to tarnish achievements

I've said it a million times you cant beat Kerry or Kilkenny often enough and by enough, I've stated total admiration for Jack O Connor and all he's achieved and stand by it , but you'd be a long time waiting for similar and more importantly GENUINE respect from Kerry ,only found out how bad they are as losers when we started to beat them god when they were hammering us they were great crack all together afterwards, know exactly know how Tyrone feel towards them , brilliant footballing county , very poor losers

Mayo Ladies Walk Out - 6 Like(s)
You can't just make this a female issue because it suits , if anything that's condescending and sexist, it's a sports issue , I've been listening to off the ball all night and for me I still think the girls have been very coy with detail , a phone call we're coach mouthed off and a player who took umbrage with the time of the dressing down , this is embarrassing in a week we're the best of ladies GAA was advertised on Sunday , no winners , honestly don't see county board backing down and if and I say if they are to be believed and those that stepped down put pressure on those that didn't to join them well then shame on them

Replying To PoolSturgeon:  "Good to see someone close to the science make a realistic assessment. There are Dubs on here clutching to straws that Mayo will seriously challenge them to make the 5 in a row feel like a bigger achievement than it actually will be. Mayo are at least 2 years off seriously challenging for Sam."
I'm not saying Mayo will win Sam but let me put it to you honestly in a one off game with all things being equal injuries etc I'd take playing Galway any day over Mayo, they've allways been prepared to have a go , unlike some

GAA Clubs Had It Tough In The North During The Troubles - 6 Like(s)

Replying To yew_tree:  "In my club we suffer with emigration but so do most rural clubs north and south. It's a struggle to keep heads above eater but we do it and it's down to great people giving up their free time right down to folk buying club lotto tickets weekly. However what I've heard clubs in the north experienced during the trouble pales into anything most clubs go through today...burning of clubhouses, destroying pitches, British army breaking hurls at checkpoints, intimidation etc....it was disgusting. I've great admiration for those in the north who kept the game going through those hard times."
Spot on Yew-tree You've hit on two excellent points , Im in my 50s travelled to the North during the troubles, for some those days are a two minute segment on reeling in the years , I wish it were so , they were horrific and the stories I have from real people couldn't be posted on here , the second point losing lads and lassies to lands a far devastating for many clubs and counties, don't get why lads get so parochial about some things on here facts are facts while we all are entitled to an opinion no one is entitled to be wrong about facts . On the immigration front not today or tomorrow but eventually it will even hit home in Dublin , there's a whole generation that may get decent employment but never be able to afford to live in the capital

Tell me when youd have thought it a good time for them to defend their reputations , I suspect you don't have one , if they said it straight after they left , sour grapes , if they said it mid summer theyd have been accused of looking for maximum impact to cause disruption , so go on then tell me when was the "right time " ?????????????????

Replying To Ulsterman:  "Do the Dublin players and management EVER smile or look as if they are enjoying winning? Definitely a cold, unemotional, mechanical, manufactured, robotic look about them. They have the Nick Faldo exterior about them. This is why most GAA folk can't and don't warm to them."
So did you you like us better with blonde peroxide hair playing to the hill when we were losing , Dubs know they are on a hidding to nothing and you would never warm to us , Yes I will agree in public we are cold ruthlessly and we slice and dice , but having been in their company these lads are over the moon tonight , as am I , look forward to your many positive posts over next few weeks

Feel it's appropriate that a thread is put up to honor a great man , regardless of county boards and expensive tables MOM is a great man , I've been privileged to be in his company and his love of the game is genuine his knowledge unique, I'd hate for him to be remembered for the thread that's gone before , I remember the great Michael O Hair and all I can say about our generations great is that that he followed the great one and some , I have so much respect for O Muircheartaigh it's important to remember and post that there are good GAA men in Kerry.

Who Can Challenge Dublin In 2019 - 6 Like(s)

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Ye have won 4 U21s since 2010 and a minor title is this not constituted as underage success Damo? Ye have won a league title and a Leinster in hurling, considering the low eb from where ye started when ye used to be battling with ourselves look how far ye have come, again is this not success? Ye are only getting started, murcan sculls and Howard were on 7 when the funding started. Ye have only just begun."
Your clutching at straws , beaten by Kildare Meath and Laois at under age this year , beat off the park by Galway , hockeyed by Cavan in the Gerry Reilly trophy,beaten in tony forestall , Sony Williams and Ara Bhan tournaments this year, do you want me to go on ??? I have been to more development games in last five years in both codes than you've been to watch your seniors , now I noticed conveniently you haven't addressed your or Galways success at under age
