Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

I think I and others speak with great authority on this one. Only 5000 attending Healy park league games is good enough for me to make an opinion and I do represent the majority that don't go any longer. You think Mickey Harte would disrespect me any less for my views? He already does by dragging Tyrone through the muck. Ah well won't be long now anyway.

So you think it's ok to make personal financial allegations against Mickey and his family, on a public forum, because you believe he would disrespect you for your views on the present state of Tyrone football?

Constructive criticism and alternative suggestions are perfectly reasonable and should be encouraged. You lads fire out blatant personal insult and nasty insinuations that have no place on a public forum. That's the crux of the issue here.

He'll  (both STG and TIAM) never answer. Like most things in life, it's always easier to point out problems and hurl from the ditch. However, resolving problems and making constructive suggestions is usually beyond a D- wind up merchant.

Look incredibly limited at half back without Murray in there.

This is the total fault of Dublin County board. How they lacked the foresight to see this potential clash is astonishing. All that needed to be done was hold off until next week and start the county championship. Now the players/clubs will take a pile of flack over a ridiculously difficult decision they were forced to take.

Why would you look at black cards offences for league only?? Do kerry not come out on top if you include championship?

In the interests of a level playing field the league is an ideal mechanism to use as all teams would have played the same number of games. Once you factor in the championship you skew the figures.

Tyrone is a shining light when compared to the cynicism rife within the country. We should hold seminars in Garvaghey sharing our wholesome brand of football ;)

General discussion / Re: sciatica

I got bad sciatica about 7 years ago and got a very quick referral through to NHS physio in Omagh. Ended up getting a physio who practiced a technique involving her (thankfully it was a she!) manipulating my lower spine with her bare feet as she walked up and down my back. She held onto a bed to take the majority of her weight. Looked like something from a low rate dominatrix flick. Kinky but effective, haven't had it since.

Btw, nearly certain I caused it by running with bad footwear that wasn't cushioning the impact of running on tarmac.

Does anyone moderate these threads at all? Since when has personal/financial insinuations become par for the course? STG and TIAM (although should address them as one) would want to wise up.

It matters not whether we have elections to Stormont or Westminster. I listen to the shite spouted about having a voice in London what nonsense as the Tory's won't listen any way. Robin Swann will do a pact as Unionism continues to self destruct.

I thought the UUP had a pact with the SDLP??  The UUP and DUP will merge within 5 years.  I'd very much doubt we'll have two elections on the same day here.  You couldn't have the UUP and DUP backing each other on one ballot paper and opposing each other on the other.

I've picked up a few rumours (only rumours mind) that SF are mooting an Anti-Brexit pact with the SDLP and Alliance.  Can't really see that working.

Mark Durkan was making noises on the Nolan show similar to those rumours. A one off anti-brexit consensus would send a relatively strong message out to the rest of the UK, even though the north barely registers on the Westminster Richter scale.

I have long thought that every single foul should be punished with a minimum of a yellow card. Usually fouling is not a natural consequence of a fast, physical game, it's a deliberate act of cheating to gain an unfair advantage. As such it should be punished more harshly than it is currently.

People would whine about games finishing with 10 red cards but the truth is if someone knows they will be punished for any transgression they'll cut out the petty stuff like pulling jerseys or mouthing and most other types of foul. This can only improve the game.

It wouldn't prevent the last minute Cavanagh style rugby tackles but there's ways to deal with that too.

Surely you're taking the piss?

Excellent post, Tiempo.

I think it's been a really good league and has shown that the gap between the top 6 and the rest isn't so big. The performances of Monaghan and Donegal were the biggest surprise, I thought both would have been involved in the relgation scrap but those 2 and Tyrone will fight out the Ulster championship this summer. Dublin to me look like a team that have plateaued and possibly peaked. They no longer play the swashbuckling attacking football of 2014 when they created umpteen goal chances in every game. Maybe the loss of the unbeaten record might help them play with more freedom but they are no longer tha all attacking force that they were 3 years ago. kilkenny has summed up the evolution of this Dublin side. They have turned to pragmatism rather than creative play.

The standout players that I've seen in this years league have been David Moran, Paul Geaney and Ryan McHugh all of whom are now firmly in the top half dozen players in the country imo.

Not sure about this, in fact, I would say the opposite!
