Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

It's a good draw. Someone like Tyrone, Mayo or even Armagh, and it was curtains.

Antrim at home is winnable, but it's still going to be a challenge, so they have to be focused for it, otherwise they will lose. I think that's exactly what you need at this point.

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

AZ Offaly - I would probably have handled it immediately, by asking Stephen if that was him in the video. Straight question. And if it is, you have to get rid of him immediately And what if he denied it was him? After all he did appeal. I saw the video myself and I couldn't hand on heart be complet...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

I think it's fair to say that there are a lot of people that come out of this with their reputation(s) damaged. However can I just pose the following questions? (1) Is it so unreasonable to look at what Stephen Wallace did in that video and say that if it is confirmed that he was the person who thr...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

I'm getting a sense that the tide has turned on this alright. It's beginning to look and sound like there were some unhappy campers, but by and large the players were happy enough. Decisions on the day were strange, as I said at the time, but that's hardly a sacking offence. I think the board had ma...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

I'm not buying this nonsensical statement from the players.. it seems merely a ploy to cover their own backs and deflect blame towards the county board.. I counted 11/12 of this panel who liked Alan McNamee's tweet, condemning Stephen Wallace.. how many of these were signatories to last nights stat...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

I think the punch in the Kerry club match did more damage to him than the Wicklow result. I was actually just thinking the same thing. There were bizarre decisions last Sunday, but none were sackable offences and could have been a learning experience for him too. Did you see the “letter” Colm Parki...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

If he, or Shane Nally, are injured, then it's crazy to name them on a 26. You can only be named on the 26 if the management are willing to use you. As regards the ball going into the full foward line, I agree, but at the same time a lot of the lateral hand passing was because Wicklow had set their d...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

I thought there was some seriously bizarre decisions/non decisions yesterday. As mentioned, if Eoin Carroll was fit enough for the 26, why was he not given game time? Same argument for Shane Nally. And the way Nigel Dunne was treated left me baffled. He hadn't started well, had dropped a shot short,...

Re: Offaly Senior Footballers Championship Thread

Lads, am I missing something here. I don't see the massive deal. He's a gossun, and if we need him to beat Wicklow, we are in trouble. Look at it this way, unless I am completely off base, he will be allowed play with the seniors when the U20s are knocked out. So either he'll be available for a Lein...

Re: Rhode Manager

I'd have said Rhode play the way they do because they have their eye on Leinster. 15 on 15 they're better than anything in Offaly at present, but are they better than anything in Leinster? They've had disappointments in Leinster, so I think they set up this way to try and win that. Whether it will w...

Re: Direction?

Most of West Offaly would go to Banagher or Ferbane I'd have thought. Certainly in my days in Sarans there were lads from Shannonbridge, Cloghan, Doon, Pullagh etc.

Re: We Are Offaly

Downloaded the Soundcloud app and listened to episode 1 last night. Very good I have to say. Really good enjoyable interview with Sean Ryan. I'll listen to episode 2. Is this a completely independent venture, or a M103 involved? If they are, it might be an idea to include snippets of commentary from...
