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

Come Back Mayo All Is Forgiven - 8 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

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

Replying To alano12:  "the incident happened over a year ago yet they choose to launch an attack on the players now after a tough loss?...not exactly the bravest of times to do things nor the most was petty and doesnt do mayo any good in my opinion"
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 " ?????????????????

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.

Shane Ryan Interview - 5 Like(s)

Replying To TheMaster:  "But as I said, nobody was claiming that they couldn't do it wayno (they do it regularly enough in the league after all), the point is that they don't have to play away from home while everyone else does. Like it doesn't seem to occur to him that laois are still playing away from home in this fixture, even though it is supposed to be at home... You really wonder about the mindset involved where someone would think that this would appease a single person, let alone shut anyone up, be that shane ryan or anyone else. Damo, you mean comment on poor decisions in the gaa? Do you not do that yourself? Maybe talk about the subject matter instead of crying foul all the time. If Im being unfair on the subject then it shouldn't be an issue for you to highlight that. By all means, do so."
I was referring to you going on and on and on and on and on and on and on , Everyone and I mean everyone knows were you stand on the Dubs on advantages , I mean how on earth could they not know what alternative Hoganstand planet could they be living on for them not to know were you stand , the problem is you have done this to death a million times .Dressing the pig up in a blanket giving it lipstick doesn't make it a bird.

Replying To alano12:  "this article has given many the opportunity to stick the boot into this mayo team more than anything else"
Rubbish , Ive had a look back at posts that's not what I see , you have an the ends justify the means attitude and that's not my take on it for one bit , you have completely missed that a mans reputation may actually mean something to him , natural justice dictates a mans right to face his accuser , up until now what we have known about the whole sorry saga has been drip fed from the players ,people who love GAA don't enjoy this in ANY county , I hated the Cork Galway and Limericks sagas previously and don't enjoy this one, but if it was me and some thought it was alight to steamroll my name , you bet Id fight back , the response from H/C has been measured had this come out last june / july Id buy that they were only motivated by revenge , but December give a rest .

Shane Ryan Interview - 5 Like(s)

Replying To TheMaster:  "Just reading that piece with Shane Ryan on the website. He makes some strange observations that, to me, show he doesn't really understand the argument he is arguing against. For starters, nobody ever stated Dublin cant travel - they said they always get to play at home. They are two very different points. Then he states that this game will 'shut people up'. So a supposed home game for laois getting played at a neutral venue is supposed to shut people up about unfairness? Of course it doesn't. The fact that people think that this represents fairness is even more worrying to be honest. If the roles were reversed, and Dublin had a designated home game against Kerry which was played in cork, would that be fair? Of course not. (His arguments about the resources of Kerry and Kilkenny, and 'you weren't complaining until we were winning' have long been debunked, so no point going into them again)"
funny ,it hasn't stopped you repeating yourself for years

Ulster Team Allege Sectarian Abuse. - 4 Like(s)
If comments were made it's not about you or I and if we found them offensive, it's the ears of the 14 year old on the other end of the comment should be the judge of that. I've been around feiles for quite a few years and visited other counties never came across anything like this remotely I'd question does it in the week of a World Cup and US Open warrant top headline yesterday on the Irish Indo , they do love a bit of GAA negativity

How Many Points Is Home Advantage Worth? - 4 Like(s)

Replying To KY4SAM2015:  "I think the general consensus is 3 to 4 points in Gaelic football not sure about hurling. There was a study done in 2012 which showed games between teams competing in the same division over a number of years that showed there was an 81% win rate for the home team. Not sure what the results have been over the last 5 or 6 years but I'd assume similar enough."
Hardly matters we never get to play in Parnell Park

Replying To Goalie2016:  "How exactly were they humiliated publicly? The players gave a letter to the county board and they were dismissed. No player from that Mayo team has come out and said anything specifically about why they wanted them out. What H&C have done is unforgivable naming players in an interview. Discussing topics that were said within in the confides of a dressing room. Everybody knows the first rule of GAA is what's said in the dressing room stays there."
on this forum last year it was discussed in length by many many a Mayo poster as to why they were removed , my point being in NOT BEING specific your fellow county men bought into rumour and conjecture , it was common talk to say they were less professional , under qualified etc etc etc by being as underhand as the players were and not being man enough to face the managers led to many believing the rumours , if you've read the interview in full they explain the humiliation , you have read it ???

John Kiely's Parade/Squad Proposals - 4 Like(s)

Replying To DonaldDuck:  "I like John Kiely a lot, and what a job he has done, but his idea that the whole squad should parade behind the band is ridiculous. If I was number 24 on the squad, I don't think I'd be bothered. Also think his suggestion that there should be 30+ in the squad is also ridiculous. Agree/disagree? StoreysTash (Wexford) - Posts: 39 - 17/08/2018 15:06:20I dont like the parade at all. Id get rid of it if i could. What would be wrong with more than 30 in a squad"
I tend to read a lot of autobiography's have never read a player that didn't dream of the parade , equally they state while in the parade they are biting to get going , love the parade as the pass by roar me head off , and if the people that matter ie the players enjoy it then debate over
