How the Down man didn't receive a black card for the 3rd man tackle on Corey is mind blowing.

Like J70 said above, some of the criticism of the CCCC is a bit unfair considering there would be a strong possibility that they would have reviewed it anyway. By virtue of being on immediately, or shortly, after the game then it makes the Sunday Game look like the tail wagging the dog.

In amongst the hyperbole in the week after the Connolly incident someone in the podcast media (may have been OTB) quoted a journalist who scrutinised the CCCC. The vast, vast majority of their work was done away from the public spotlight and the vast, vast majority of their decisions were accepted and not challenged. Listening to some commentators you'd swear there was a turnover rate approaching 100% when it came to the CCCC.

This is not me saying they're perfect or near it but there is a strong case for a review of both the rulebook and the disciplinary course after controversial incidents.

Surely someone could be employed to review video footage of all the games over the weekend and with technology put together a short series of clips for the referee to review during the week that may have been missed or misinterpreted by the officials during the game.

I think we (Armagh Harps) were Division 1, I watched a bit of Ardboe v New York QF  so they were Division 1 as well. Is there like a Senior, Intermediate & Junior concept in operation?

You would assume that but in Tyrone we have 4 grades at u14 and our grade 2 winners (Errigal) were playing in Division 6 which doesn't tally up.

How does the grading system work? I see Errigal Ciaran (grade 2 in Tyrone) are playing in division 6. That seems a bit low for them looking at some of the other clubs playing above them.

The 'B' side of the draw looking very tasty now:

Monaghan could meet either Donegal or Mayo in the next round then round 3 also throws up the possibility of either of those three big guns meeting again.

Calm the passion HS, that Monaghan thread has you rattled!

Title changed. I'm going for Down by 3.

2003 was one of the best games I was at. Simply because it was farcical.

If Connaire Harrison is injured they could call on big Dan Gordan. We're fcuked!

Quaate blethering and update the thread title

How the feck do I do it? Can't see any option to update!

I recorded the game and watched it later in the evening. Don't think I fast forwarded once during the whole game. Mighty stuff.

I'd call it a penalty every day of the week. Walshe came in from behind with a clumsy enough tackle, fell infront of the down player and caused him to go to ground. Denied a certain clear attempt at goal although not the worst foul in the world.

Down certainly paid for that 50/50 call as the got the square root of f**k all for the rest of the half.

Anybody got any wee fun drills for u6s? I'm taking my clubs u6s now and do the usual wee tag games teaching the concept of finding space, obstacle courses, toe pick ups, kicking etc. Will start teaching the concept of sledging later in the summer ;)

I'm conscious that it can be a bit repetitive for them and looking some ideas to freshen it up every now and then.
Try the link below and select the football tab at the top and your age group on the left of the page and you should find any amount of games and drills in there for the kids - its a great resource

Yeah, one of us would need to take Dublin out first for that to happen. We'll leave that to you sure!

Ironically, would the Ulster loser (if they reach the QF) be in a better position to challenge Dublin? Meeting them slightly earlier in the year and minus Dermot Connolly?
