Replying To arock:  "The only people making it a female issue are condescending males who barely tolerate females even as partners never mind sports people. I too have been listening to Off The Ball the way that coach behaved flies in the face of any kind of advice that a coach should follow. If a coach hurls abuse in a one and one conversation they are NOT fit to be a coach its not allowed in the work place, in school on our streets, just because its a sports arena doesn't make it right. The fact he spoke alone to these players speaks volumes he ignored his own player liaison officer, he abused his capt he lost the plot and now half the dressing room. The chap had a player liaison officer right? a great choice that turned out to be. Some players who were selected have backed the players, they are not all from one club yet one club was targeted illegally by the county board and they had to back track on that one. They made a balls of the mediation, I would imagine the county board is only too happy to put the boot into the only club targeted. Imagine if that happened in Dublin? No it wouldn't because it couldn't happen players as players are treated with dignity and respect, There is no nice way to drop players but there is a respectful way. I would wager the current management won't be around next year."
You are so misinformed its genuinely ruining this thread.

Replying To arock:  ""honestly don't know what happened ". How about almost half the panel since it is such a critical part of your argument. Eh why did the county board punish one club and not the other? How come the team had a player liaison officer yet this officer had zero input by management and by the players? Players have a fundamental right to walk away if they wish for whatever reason they choose. If this was the work place the management would be sacked that is why I back the girls. The girls who chose to remain are not part of the conversation as they are playing, have no issues so why would they be a part of the conversation? People involved in the GAA seem to feel natural justice, fairness and the rule of law do not apply. This will be resolved in the courts."
"Eh why did the county board punish one club and not the other? How come the team had a player liaison officer yet this officer had zero input by management and by the players? Players have a fundamental right to walk away if they wish for whatever reason they choose. " We've been over this. 4 players walked away, 8 players did not - they were withdrawn by their club. That is why one club was punished and not any of the others. THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. 12 players stopped playing for Mayo, 26 did not. Not even a third of the panel. Get the facts fact right before you launch into your baseless arguments. Finally, maybe listen to Peter Leahy's interview. Then you'd discover that the liaison officer had plenty of input.

Replying To catch22:  "Yeah , you seem well informed alright. Heaps of them just queuing up there alright. God above, what are you going to come out with next? Mayo for Sam is it ?"
You're clearly anti-Mayo. Suppose there's no one interested in the Kerry job either since only Peter Keane is being mentioned?

Replying To browncows:  "It is a amateur game and of course the 8 players are entitled to withdraw from a panel at any time. Why should their club suffer?-very strange to suspend the club. I did not know there was such a rule within the ladies game. If half the team has a problem with the manager, then the manager has a problem and he should be prepared to do the decent thing."
Maybe you aren't getting this?? The players did not withdraw themselves from the panel The club secretary of Carnacon rang the Mayo manager informing him that the Carnacon players would no longer be playing for Mayo. That is why the club is involved and potential will suffer the consequences.

Replying To catch22:  "I never said nobody was interested just not all these mystery men that seem to have disappeared. You saying "I'm sure plenty were interested " is just daft and based on what ? If they all dropped off that easily , well jays , they're probably no loss then are they , whoever they are."
Stephen Rochford, Peter Ford, Shane Conway to name three who were interested. In fact any club manager in Mayo probably would have an interest. We're talking about a county who has 46 provincial titles, has played in 48 All Ireland semi finals and has featured in 4 of the last 7 finals....So yeah, i'm sure plenty were interested in the Mayo job.

Replying To Gleebo:  "I agree that the statement put out by the ladies who withdrew seems a little bit watery (short of accompanying detail that we're not privy to). However, there are some inaccuracies being sprouted by some on this thread. Firstly, not all of the players who left come from Carnacon, four of them (including former captain Sarah Tierney) come from other clubs. So it's not just a case of Carnacon players throwing one out of the pram. Secondly, it was the LGFA clubs in Mayo who voted to censure Carnacon. Could this possibly be because Carnacon have won every county championship since the year 2000, running up huge scores in the process? Is it possible that the 26 delegates who voted for their expulsion saw an opportunity for their own clubs? Why weren't the other players/clubs involved subjected to the same sanction? And is it right to punish 30 odd club footballers for the actions of 8 that were on the county panel? Seems to me that there's a lot of blame to go round here, and it's not all on the players who left."
More inaccuracies from you Gleebo. 4 players left the panel, 8 players (the Carnacon players) were withdrawn by their club. That is why the county board and club delegates took action against Carnacon, because they withdrew the services of their players from the county team. That is also why the other clubs weren't punished. They had no involvement, the four players representing those clubs withdrew themselves.

Replying To The_DOC:  "Do you seriously think the Mayo team this year...having just about stayed up in the Championship, and who admitted before the Galway game that this was the game they were targeting from the outset of the year....THEN when and decided to peak for August once in the qualifiers?"
Mayo's league and Connacht championship form was identical in 2016, 2017 and 2018 under Rochford. That's no accident. Do you honestly think the Galway team that beat Mayo in 2016 and 2017 would have lived with Mayo in late August in Croke Park? Before you answer that, the team that beat Galway by 9 points in 2016, lost to Mayo by 6 points in the next round. And the team that beat Galway by 8 points in 2017, lost to Mayo by 5 points in the next round. Maybe, just maybe, Mayo are slightly different team team in August and September than in May and June.... And come off it - Galway in Castlebar, they're hardly going to say any different.

Replying To The_Fridge:  "Only teams? I think mayo are as far away as ever to be fair. Beat by a Kildare team who were relegated on zero points and destroyed in super 8's. And beat by Galway again. Ageing team. Stayed up by the skin of their teeth. I think the pecking order is Dublin, Tyrone, Kerry, Galway, Monaghan, mayo. I think mayo need to take a step back and try to win a Connaught title before thinking of an all Ireland. If Horan comes in they have a chance. Great manager."
I think you're a little off on this one. Mayo, like previous years, were building to peak in August and got caught (nearly happened the past two years as well). You seem quick to forget that Tyrone were very fortunate to get away from Navan in the first round of the qualifiers. But really there is no point in comparing the Tyrone in Navan with the Tyrone that went up to Donegal in the final round of the Super 8. Tyrone were hitting their stride then and playing at their optimum. In my view, Mayo at their peak and with everyone available are only weaker than Dublin and would fancy their chances against anyone else in big game in Croke Park.

Replying To catch22:  "Sure Jack O Connor didn't want the bloody job. Kevin Mc Stay didn't want it either. Both experienced top managers. You basically had the two lads and that's the bottom line. Stop the oul scutter about all these fellas that were mad for the Mayo job. You say there not too many top managers out there , sure ye got rid of the one ye had."
At least Mayo have two lads looking for the job, Kerry only have one and Roscommon have none. Seriously though, give it a rest - you haven't a clue and your bitterness just seeps through every post you make. Like it's not as if you have spoken to Jack O'Connor and asked him. And you say Kevin McStay didn't want the Mayo job as if its some slight against Mayo, actually Kevin McStay doesn't want ANY job but he previously tried his best to get the Mayo job. You're bitter - end of.

Replying To catch22:  "Many interested. Does 2 count as many ? Maybe in your part of the universe."
2 were nominated, i'm sure there were plenty of other interested parties. Of course people would want the Mayo job, its still one of the top 5 jobs in football so to say no one was interested is just silly. Realistically, potential managers dropped off the minute they realised the strong chance of Horan getting the job.
