Sorry Wayno but......

Unbelievable headwreckers
Beating the stupid bodhrans for minutes at a time while play is going on.... give it a bloody rest!
everyone around me was giving out shite about ye, and i was literally right beside ye. There was a woman beating one next to me and she wasnt able for it herself, she kept taking breaks and at one point DURING the match, she sat down and was watching nothing just having a smoke....
and as for your man, the main fella, older lad, the abuse he was giving the meath lads was pretty dispicable and is exactly what culchies think we are all like.

Sorry Wayne, but you need new friends! And those stupid bodhrans have to go

I am all for atmosphere and craic like the Hill was a few years back. But this is forced and its incredibly annoying. And that Alan Alan ALan song.....give me strength

Whatever about the head-wreck of the banging, there's no excuse..........for the abuse. Not the first time I've heard these opinions being expressed by a long shot. Give it over BBs!

i wouldnt lambaste them all its really taht one guy who gives them a bad name in fairness.
he was the whistle blower aswell and seems to always get the camera pointed at him whenever dublin score.
if you dont want to listen to them then why not stand in an area not beside them,in fairness i dont even hear them at matches as i dont stand beside the posts

Hill, i was in that section, B143 I think it was
Got there at 1.40 and stood by the nearest railing i could, next thing this starts.
Completely ruined the game cos anytime i wanted to have a chat with the lad next to me neither of us could hear a thing with them

and regarding that one fella, he is a disgrace and there is another lad with a big tatoo on his left arm just as bad as him.

On a side note , anyone notice how low the tannoy was on Sunday........or were my ear drums just perforated??!!

Good point hill16man, I have never stood behind the goal as historically, going back to the 70s, that is where the worst element congregate. If I was an opposition supporter I would not stand there to be insulted.

they go to the same spot for all the matches liamo,right behind the goal and down at the screen so just dont go to that spot the next day if you dont want to hear them simple as.section a is much better for viewing the match as you get perfect view up the pitch without any net in your way

Ah leave it out ,
Im bringing my boy,s to the Hill for first time ever for hurling semi , as part of their on going Dublin gaa education , aged 13 and 15 ,
Back in the late 80s and early 90s the hill was magic , then I got old and retreated to slippers and the Hogan stand , went back for a game last year and was taken aback by the guy,s who quite simply hadn,t a clue , miss a shot get im off etc , ref has no dad , blah blah , was thinking was I looking through rose tinted glasses nostalgia etc or was the Hill always like that , do remember it being a place of constant noise ( chanting ) unique humour , of course there was language but not the spite that I witnessed last year , Im all for opposing fans coming into the Hill , but the banter should be loud , funny , constant but their is a line .
Wondering lads regarding the Hill should I stay or should I go as the song say,s .

Why didn't you move ?

Im feckin sick of all the abuse that people get, yous choose to stand there and that's the bottom line.

If im not mistaken, it was your first time on the hill since 2006, And having given out about the Bodhrans before what do you go and do ? ........ Stand right behind the bloody things ? And then you have the audacity to have a go at us ? You have a free choice where to stand on the hill. You and your mates could of moved before throw in. If yous didn't take the opportunity and decided to stick it, You only have yourself to blame really.

As for "your man, The older fella", You don't know him, I notice you didn't have the neck to go say anything to him about the "abuse" .. You instead decide to have a go at him over a computer screen in the safety of your home in where is it ? Limerick ? .. For what its worth, That guy is one of the nicest people you can meet, If only you could have asked some of the Meath fans we where with in Quinns after the game where we all had the craic with them all day. What he says probably goes over the top sometimes but don't say you've never done it. Because everyone has .

and as for this "I am all for atmosphere and craic like the Hill was a few years back. But this is forced and its incredibly annoying. And that Alan Alan ALan song.....give me strength

Just cause you're a dry shite that just goes to games and wants to stand there like you're in a church doesn't mean we do .. IT'S A BIT OF A LAUGH, ITS BANTER .. ITS CRAIC.. Come down of your high horse. If you don't like us, move, but at least have the neck to say it to people rather than being a keyboard warrior.

Well Damo, like yourself, I had stopped going around 2000 because little one was too small and we used go to the stand and older family were suited by that as well. Sadly most are now passed on or like my Da too old even to go to stand anymore. Have started back to Hill since three years ago and now the 'little one' is going as well as her chums. Have to say I love it despite the drawbacks - not great place to watch hurling to be honest but atmosphere for Galway game was incredible.

It is definitely a safer and more pleasant place than years ago when it was downright dangerous at times. It was potential death trap the way it was built. Now, there is rarely even a tight squeeze. I was in corporate box for 2011 final and was mad that I hadn't swapped it for a Hill as box was mainly full of people, including a few "Dubs", who clearly had little interest or knowledge and who were bemused by myself and a few other Dubs and Kerry people who were roaring our heads off. On the Hill we would all have been 'in your gannies' :-)

I was on my own Wanyo so u will excuse me if i didnt approach some random head the ball and ask him to pipe down the abuse he was spitting out. I am sorry i am not chuck norris!
If that fella is the nicest fella you could meet, i'd hate to see what you regard as a toe rag!!!

I am all for atmosphere, standing on the Hill, singing and the banter. I am doing it since 1989 so p*ss right off with your "this is my house" attitude Wayno. I was on the Hill when you didnt know what a GAA ball looked like!
There is banter, there is the anti Meath songs....thats banter thats craic, what some of your mates come out with is NOT banter
I would like to post here what was said and about who but doubtless it would not be printed. but it was despicable.

And for you to tell me to move if i dont like it.......listen young man, the Hill is ours, not yours, its all of ours......so who are you and your gang led by the pied piper to tell anyone they should move!!

If you are sick of it then its cos loads of people dont like it apart from me.
Ye are a scourge on the Hill and proper Dublin fans and for all your "say it to his face" shite, I'd love to put you in a room with Joe Sheridan or Mickey Burke and see would you or the pied piper say it to their faces......

Cos you know you wouldnt !!

What I don't understand is why they bother to buy the bodhrán at all. I mean they haven't a clue how to play the thing and would get the same sound if they brought a bucket and a wooden spoon.

The Hill can be great but it can also be awful annoying at times in fairness. Wouldn't stand near that particular group if I could avoid it as the sound of the banging does my head in but each to their own. No rhythm to it, they should head to some LoI games to actually see how drumming can add to an atmosphere rather than take from it.

the woman was knackered from it! and like i said, they are only watching the games to bang bodhrans and look for an excuse to craic "jokes"......

what on earth is the point of randomly banging bodhrans for 2 mins non stop when the bloody match is going on in front of you!!!

If your a fan, put down the instrument and watch the bloody game!!!

I'm not saying the hill belongs to the bodhran gang, I'm saying if you don't like them, theres nothing stopping you moving.

That's the bottom line here.

There was absolutely nothing to stop you from moving up a bit or across to a different section if you didn't want to hear it that much banging.

I don't see why you would openly criticize the gang behind the goal there in the past, And yet when you go on the hill.. Stand behind them. That to me doesn't doesn't make any kind of logical sense. If I don't like something ... I wont do it. You weren't forced to stand there and listen to the bodhrans.

If you are sick of it then its cos loads of people dont like it apart from me.
Ye are a scourge on the Hill and proper Dublin fans and for all your "say it to his face" shite, I'd love to put you in a room with Joe Sheridan or Mickey Burke and see would you or the pied piper say it to their faces......


So I'm not a "proper" fan am I not ? Is that what your saying ? Because I stand with a group of people with bodhrans and a fella who goes a bit over the top in his abuse im not a proper fan ? Like the average fan who just stands there watching the game ? I suppose the money I pay for my Parnell park pass and the money I pay on petrol and bus fair and tickets all year long the length and breath of the country counts for nothing because I am with that gang and have a bodhran is that what your suggesting .. "Im a scourge on the hill and proper Dublin fans"

to be fair to you Wayne, i am not talking about you. I am talking about The Pied piper and his tattoed accomplice. Which i assume wasnt you?
I genuinely when i realised where i was, was half thinking of heading over to see which one of them was Wayne and introducing meself, but before i knew it the "beats" had started and that put a stop to that
i had a nice spot against a barrier and i wasnt gonna lose that, altho i didnt realise quite how bad it would get

Can you not see why ye would annoy the shite out of people and why telling someone to move if they dont like it is like telling people who live next door to trouble makers that its they should leave their house?????

Of corse I can see why it would annoy you. I just feel im being made a scapegoat here because I do be with them, Its not up to me to put him in his place same way its not up to you Liam, And surely you can understand that the fella you see shouting abuse, Is the fella I know personally very well for a very long time and actually consider him a good friend. I see the nice side of him, I would know his family. I would see what he is like to opposition fans walking down the road having the banter and the craic. Sometimes in the heat of the moment he goes far to far. But ive been guilty of that too. As im sure most have.

To be fair the bodhrans are starting to annoy me a bit too.. When I got mine..there was 4 of us with them.. Which okay, Its still a lot, But even so, now there is about 8 and like someone said they are all out of sync and everything .. To be completely honest I don't bang it during an attack like some of the others do cause I do be too into the match to be banging away.. But I do the Dublin thing and I bang them under the hill as im going on the hill itself but once the game starts I don't be near the bodhran half as much .. Sure how would I write about the games here if I wasn't able to concentrate. ;)
