Because it is a discussion board?

Time to get fully behind the players who want to represent us on Sunday and play our part in restoring a bit of pride.

Reading on the Tyrone thread there about the amount of people that are inside the pitch at league games and I have to agree. Only one manager should be allowed on the touchline, everyone else in the dugout.
I went to Loup and Bellaghy game last night. Loup had 5 "managers" up the line, all roaring instructions onto the pitch. I just cant see how this is even beneficial for them.
Decent game though, with a draw the fair result

They had bother getting 1 and now have 5. Interesting.

Well done to the hurlers today. Croke Pk bound in June to play Armagh in the final
Well done to the hurdles surely but I feel we need to put this in context before any wild celebrations. Carlow have qualified for the Christy  Ring final which is the tier above our current nicky rackart level. Next year will provide a much more genuine test of where we are at.

All Seasons is 100% correct. Well done, of course, but Derry should not really be hurling at this level. More Ulster Senior titles this century than the footballers. Mind you, All Seasons has put a few "hurdles" in the way, which is concerning!!

Mainly black cards against 'Screen last year. Maybe one of the McGoldricks got a red near the end. Can't remember. Black Saturday aka The Barry Cassidy Show.

It certainly was black Saturday for football, one of the most boring, defensive and cynical matches of the year.  The cards delivered were deserved.

He uses that line frequently.

Full marks for observation to The Stallion.

Hear another man left the derry panel; there a enough players left to  name a 24 match panel on game day!

Who's gone? Its hard to take how negative Derry is at the minute, county board just happy to go along and pick up the money from club games.. sure if they could pull the county team out of the championship they would. Sad times for once a proud county time to retire the oak leaf jersey no once seems to care a week out from the championship and more people are worried about Skinner head butting a ref three years ago ::)

I am certainly not worried about Skinner but there is a general connection. Lack of discipline is linked to a lack of commitment which feeds into a lack of success and eventually a lack of hope. Pride needs to be restored quickly before it is too late for another generation.

Few things

ONEDerry mentions headbutting? Glad the previous post clears that up. I don't recall any mention of headbutting from years ago
Bradleys wagging the dog? So the team wanted to play away but Baker/Paddy/Skinner pulled rank? Catch yourselves on.

Skinner hit a referee, served the ban, paid the compensation and that's that
Referee was never to be refereeing senior matches involving Glenullin again. He was not down to referee game until a last minute change which club knew nothing about
Referee's administrator holds hands up and admits mistake and comes to referee game himself.
Loup then refuse to accept this (on what grounds I'm not sure)

No club should dictate who referees their games. But in this case where the referee has taken a court case against a player, receiving compensation and stating he couldnt referee again due to the ordeal and was so traumatised he couldn't work then I feel we are right to make a stand.
But hey we were probably wrong and I'm sure he probably would have did it fairly

As a GAA member, the case you make is against the Association's ethos and yes you are wrong. Not sure who the "we" is? Do you speak on behalf of the club?

You are very close to the scene, can you find out how true your version is please. The county board members reading this can speak to ref.

Discipline, or lack of, has certainly been a significant issue for a number of years at club level. Sounds like it is getting worse.
