Kerry V Dublin - 10 Like(s)
I know I'm probably wasting my time but it is depressing in the extreme to read the tenor of some of the posts here in the wake of a great game of football served up by two great teams.
A realtively small number of posters seem to have huge chips in their shoulders & have a huge need to put this chip on display at the slightest provocation.
The fact of the matter is that there are some posters whose comments I no longer bother to read at all because I have a fair idea wht will be in the post & life is way too short to spend it reading drivel.
I'm not saying for one minute that people can't be passionate supporters of their own team, I plead guilty here myself, but that doesn't mean that we need harp on, ad nauseum, about how great our team is & how lousy everyone else is. It really is as boring as hell.
Just saying like,

Dublin Getting 2 Home Games In The Super 8s. Fair Or Unfair? - 10 Like(s)
Couple of points Damo,
1 Most counties don't actually train on their county grounds anymore.
2 You do have "superior access" insofar as you play every home game there.
3 No need to speak through anyone, review already announced.
4 Nobody is "offended", sick to the back teeth would be more like it.

Londonderry - will they ever learn? - 10 Like(s)
I never thought the day would come when I would be lost for words on HS but you have managed it Ulsterman.
1. The "conflict" as you put it is over.
2. To equate the deaths if thousands of people with a mispronunciation is mind boggling.
3 It is your narrow minded little post that I was referring to as a bun fight.
Get over it Ulsterman. Nobody gives a toss what some BBC nobody called Derry. It doesn't matter. You haven't much to be worrying about if this nonsense is what gets you into a lather.
It nearly makes me sympathetic to the unionists but then I remember they have their share of planks as well.

Rory Gallagher Steps Down from Donegal Post - 9 Like(s)
I was never a fan of his either as Donegal manager or Kilcar manager & I think he has done the right thing.
Never faulted his effort but his style of play & personality got in the way in my view.
I hope he takes Maxi with him.

A couple of very cranky Kerry lads on here this morning.
It was a great game & a draw was a fair enough result. Yes we can debate a few things but no need to go all Jimbo on it.

A Fabulous Weekend of Club Football - 8 Like(s)
Once again Morefield & St Lomans have shown us that there is thriving GAA life outside county football.
Yesterdays game was fantastic entertainment, especially considering the time of year, & to see the highs & lows writ large on the faces of the supporters was gripping.
It is an oft repeated truth that the club is the bedrock of the GAA, but we can forget this in the glare of inter county competitions & the fluff & froth of fake outrage about who won this All Star or was or wasn't manager of the year. The football & hurling we have enjoyed this autumn should bring us all back to earth & make us grateful for what we have in club GAA.
Most of the players involved in this autumns provincial club championships will never see their names up in lights but they have illuminated manys an autumn evening for me & I salute them all.

There have been a couple of Donegal posters embarrassing both themselves and the county these past couple of weeks.
I hope they feel suitably foolish this evening.

Great result & performance fro Donegal on what was a difficult day for football.
One small note of disappointment was the way Dublin played with 14 men inside their own 45 when not in possession. You wouldn't catch Donegal or indeed any Ulster team engaging in such negativity.
Disgraceful carry on.

Ah Herbie for God's sake give it a rest. Why would the ref want to make sure that Kerry won? Ask yourself that for one minute.
This constant complaining about the referee, which is now endemic in soccer as well, has to be the most annoying things in sport these days. Did the ref get every decision right? No he didn't, he made mistakes. But the man is human & can only call it as he sees it.
The players made lots of mistakes as well for the same reason, they are human, & Donegal were to a degree architects of their own misfortune. Defensively we were poor & Nathan Mullins got himself sent off needlessly.
Donegal cannot control what the referee does or doesn't do. All they can control is what they do on the pitch themselves, they had the winning of that game under their own control but didn't manage to carry it off. However it is early in the year & I'm sure things will improve.
One thing I am sure of though is that bellyaching about the referee will not help the cause.

Somebody should resign, someone else should apologise & damages will have to be paid the the traumatised Derry ones.

Now you know how we feel when the blue clad hordes descend on our provincial towns on the odd occasion that Dublin play outside the M50.
Country folk line up to stare slack jawed at their sophisticated city cousins as they stroll around eating coddle from tupperware containers. Their futile attempts at communicating with locals, due largely to their Dustin the Turkey accents, are the source of much discussion & their choice of cologne kindles memories of dancehalls from the 1970's.
Only after they have left do we realise that everything that wasn't nailed down is gone but for all that we do love them!!

I agree 100% richie.
Some people here would need to grow up a bit. What's next?
Videos of wives, girls & daughters getting involved in the "craic" when the ladies team wins a title?
Seems it's ok to have the fellas behaving like animals in a field but I'd say there would be a change of mind if this was a video of a women's team with a couple of male strippers especially if the women were related or known to the posters who think this is all a "harmless bit of craic"
Let's call a spade a spade here. This is a disgrace on any level full stop.

Donegal's Motion Fails - 6 Like(s)
I raised this issue last year & got dogs abuse from a few myopic posters who accused me of anti Dublin bias when nothing could be further from the truth.
There is a small rump of posters on HS who couldn't care less about the GAA as long as their county is doing well. They don't seem to realise that there is little kudos in their county winning all round them if that success is partly down to the authorities scattering flowers in front of them as they go.
Just let me hear no weasel words about sportsmanship & fair play in flowery ads telling me that I should be supporting my county when they have done everything in their power to stack the deck against us.
As for the delegates who voted against the Donegal motion, I have nothing but contempt for them.
