Tyrone Vs Fermanagh

(Oldest Posts First)

2022 Ulster Championship kicks of this evening as Tyrone make the short trip to Brewster Park Enniskillen to play our neighbours Fermanagh.
Always enjoyed the hostile atmosphere there, feels like a real championship game. Some really good players in that Fermanagh squad, Derrygonnelly got the Better of Dromore in the Ulster Club and some of the St Michaels Hogan Cup winners are now regulars with their County and looking strong.
As always Quigley will be a handful, but I think we will be still strong enough to get the win especially withh Ronan McNamee now back, Hampsey & Frank Burns looking very Composed against kerry plus Darragh Canavan & Darren McCurry hitting form at the right time.
For me
Tyrone by 4
How do we all feel this game will pan out?

Fermanagh will go all defensive to try and keep the score down but have no chance of winning…. Tyrone to win comfortably enough in a bore fest….

It certainly was a game of 2 halves. Tyrone have a mixed message to take out of it. Brilliant play but big leak in the last few minutes. Leaking 2 goals? The red card has to be dealt with also. Some of the big names starting to come good. Though. They're going to be around at the big deciders ahead.

Thought Tyrone got badly 'done' by an experienced referee (who should have known/done better) on the red card. No point going on about it, but the incident that I saw on the Sunday Game was handled really poorly by the ref imo. There's footage of a Tyrone player being strongly 'pawed' by a gloved hand on the ground, and 2or3 Fermanagh players behaving perhaps more aggressively than the Tyrone player that was sent off. UNBELIEVABLE, as Jeff might say!!

Ar this stage it is what it is. There has clearly been some sort of decision made to punish Tyrone at every opportunity.

We will just have to deal with the fact that there is one rule for us and another for everyone else.

It does seem the way that the knives are out for Tyrone this year, it was a ridiculous red card, don't know how McQuillan can come to that decision, if it's for 'contributing to a melee' then he should have sent maybe 3 Fermanagh players off too.
McKenna has the shirt ripped of his back and he gets sent of when all he was trying to do was protect his teammate who was being mauled, ridiculous decision by the ref.
Fermanagh should get a good run in the Tailteann Cup.

I think he is in trouble, the Ref stood and watched, and McKenna was the so called "3rd" man in. He does get pulled to the ground by the jersey by a Fermanagh player, that is a so called "black card offense" however he then brings the Fermanagh player to the ground by lifting the player by the ankles, he will get cited for being reckless and dangerous. Tyrone will appeal but that then brings others from both teams into it. It was interesting to hear McGuinness and Canavan on TV making observations and McGuinness stating the only player who got off in the Donegal v Armagh incident was the only player to throw a punch. Disciplinary hearings sometimes take an unusual path with officials not been too judgemental as their peers may be making adjudications against their own county men down the line. I'm sure you still remember the Mayo official choosing to ban Tony Keady back in 1989.

Are you saying that pawing a player in the face, including the eye areas, is not reckless & dangerous? Are you saying that McQuillan got it right, or got it very very wrong, after he'd 'stood and watched'. It beggars belief imo that Fermanagh players got no cards in that incident, and McKenna got a red card after being assaulted.

If he (the ref) 'stood & watched' as you say he did, then his 'findings' would make an ideal specsaver advert. A bit like the vet operating on the woolly hat instead of the cat.

There were 3 men on top of Kilpatrick when Mc Kenna stepped in, as for lifting man to ground by ankles, I hope you're not in the medical game. There was 1 problem on Saturday and that was Mc Kenna was playing too well. I would take the punishment, beat Derry and te hell with the begrudges.

Well done on winning the Ulster U-20 title; great points by young Canavan.
