What's a compliment referee?

Does he tell the lads they have nice hair? They look good in their jerseys?
Compliant referee! Damn autocorrect and bad connection in Croke Park

'Tis is awful stuff by Armagh toady. Not convinced by Tyrone, up against a poor team and a compliment referee, won't happen against the Dubs, or Monaghan.

.......and won by 18 points

I stand over everything I said. Tyrone the much better team and deservedly well in front.

Hatre's pre match bull shit appears to have worked with Gough. Armagh can't buy a free. I thought he was the best ref in the country. He is a cheat

I remember those games from the 70s/8Os and the Derry game well. I would have been there with both my grandas. I also recall playing a few matches there for the school, conversely when I played underage for St Malachys we played our games at the school!

Finally getting round to watching the most recent episode. Diana Rigg was fantastic.

Sturridge took that well, hopefully he's ok.

Where was the advantage in that? Terrible refereeing.

I liked McGregor's suit!

Well done to the Rossies, a thoroughly deserved victory.

Just finished American Gods, thought it was very good, if a little weird.

Two observations, Gillian Anderson was superb as Media and Pablo Schreiber, as Mad Sweeney, is the absolute spit of Sergio Ramos!

Just reading that, can't think of anyone more deserving.

You take er! If it makes you feel any better, the same team lost out on a place in the Féile two years ago on a coin toss! Of course I was taking them at the time!

To be honest i've lost faith in the Feile. We have a hurling club in our town who go to the Feile EVERY year whether they win the county Feile or not (in fact 3 clubs from the county went this year) I assume this is in order to 'promote' hurling in weaker counties. As a football club we have our training and games disrupted EVERY year in order to facilitate the hurlers going to the Feile, despite on occasion not having won the county Feile. This year however our club made it to the final of the county football Feile - this has only happened on a handful of occasions over the years. We lost out narrowly to the winners and as you would expect everyone in the club was very disappointed. This disappointment was compounded when we discovered that a neighbouring club were to enter the Feile as a 'host club' given there were not enough clubs to host in Monaghan. The club in question (and fair play to them by the way) were beaten in the first round of the Shield comp in the county yet got to go to the All-Ireland competition due to their Geographical location. I would have thought the county runners up (situated 3 miles away would have been next in line to enter as a host.
I am cross due to the effort that was put in by the lads and the opportunity missed for our lads- it seems that the powers that be hand pick who they want at times which is disappointing on those who are perhaps more deserving. In short I dont believe its a level playing field which would have you question why have young lads out training in all conditions from January to try to qualify?

You are absolutely correct in your assertion that your club, as Féile runners up, should have been next in line for a place. But, if I'm right in my assumption the club you refer to were entered into Division 10 and the team that beat you in the county final were entered into Division 1 so your club would be at least Division 2 standard at a minimum? Perhaps the only vacancy as a host club was at Division 10 thus ruling you out, and them in due to their geographical location?
