Replying To Crinigan:  "Philly McMahon known by many inter county footballers in Leinster( don't know any Kerry players) to be capable of literally saying anything to the man he is marking. I won't print things I've heard that he has said to one Meath player in particular but if he ever said it to me I'd have no problem in bringing his family history into the conversation, I can tell you that. He works hard on coming across as a nice guy though and sure he has the Dublin media to help him there."
He also works hard spear heading and creating charitable organisations that are bettering ordinarily forgotten disadvantaged lives. Highlighting the scourge of addication which is becoming common place across the country. What a fraud.. aye You sir are a mouth. Nothing more.

Replying To GeniusGerry:  "Throw broad aspersions all you like, it doesn't change what happened on the field that day. KD is a big boy and he was fine afterwards thankfully. It's done and dusted now. If there is any truth in the accusation Philly made then I condemn that 100%, it doesn't give him the right to do what he did at the same time. Will leave it at that."
That's what any decent person would do , and it should be condemned. Philly can look after himself and no one's suggesting any one is an angel here but that kind of remark is particularly low and it says something about the individual who spits that out. I don't believe he would make something like that up so when you get nothing but fellas asking what he has done to be believed it speaks volumes about them as people . We'll leave it at that.

Replying To yew_tree:  "Your correct. Traveling expenses are HUGE....sending teams to Dublin multiple times in the height of summer is astronomical money and a huge saving for Dublin GAA (not their fault) but it's a fact of life for everyone else outside of Dublin and surrounding counties."
Read joe brollys article on jim gavin in the independent it was a really good read it paints a good picture of the kind of great man jim is the amount of stuff he has done for people off the field and not wanting any mention of it the way he has kept those players grounded through all this success cant have been an easy thing they have done work too charity and other things that are kept low key I believe theres a lot more to this Dublin era than money and population

Replying To Fionn:  "Donaghy not the angel you think he is. Again I refer you to the comments made to Philly during an All Ireland Final. Philly spoke about it a couple of years later on the Late Late Show but refused to name the player...!"
Not naming the player is fierce convenient because nobody is in a position to deny it or challenge him then. Regardless of what was said his reaction was to gouge another players eye, yet you are trying to flip the narrative and make him the victim. That's a stretch to say the least.

Nah , Kerry are always the victims. If it's not Dublin it's Tyrone. If it's neither it's the referee.

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "That doesn't make him any less of a gouger jim, he put his fingers into Donaghys eyes and he could have blinded him. He's a good defender but I won't be taking the word of a gouger on this."
lol While wearing thick gloves yeah? Would you drop the drama queen stuff, you were the same with Connolly Screaming that he "man handled" the linesman when he gentry touched with him with the end of his finger Look at Tomas Ose purposely elbowing Limerick players in the face at pace.. could easily cause horrid injuries Far more dangerous... Philly shouldn't have some what he did it was wrong.. but he was getting some pay back. Still wrong. But please spare us the flabergasting stuff

Replying To suckvalleypaddy:  "The Black and Tan from Kerry is by far the worst, especially in the centenary year of their rampages in 1919."
Well actually the "Black and Tans" were only recruiting from the beginning of 1920, and didn't arrive into Ireland in force until that summer.

Replying To Jackeen:  "Fair play to him but he had plenty to say about it contrary to your statement. In fact the article expressly says the following: Kieran also announced that he would be donating his own Sky Sports TV appearance fee for the replay weekend directly to Chloe's Journey. http://traleetoday.ie/family-of-little-girl-battling-cancer-thank-kieran-donaghy-for-kindness/"
A new low for you Jackeen.

Traleetoday is hardly an international newspaper jackeen, it's just a local paper for Tralee town. STAR is a brilliant man and a lovely person , what he does for the kids of Kerry giving them baseball camps during their holidays."]Where in the name of jaysus did anybody mention international news? I'm simply responding to your claim with facts. Something you have been unable to do when asked about your no smoke without fire comment. Not doubting the man at all. As I said fair play to him. Would others be so generous with their salary, highly doubtful. A huge gesture by the lad. What does he do for a living? I googled it and the first hit i got was when he left his job at the bank to concentrate on football. Wiki says he is a sales manager.

Replying To Fionn:  "Wow - you have lost all credibility with that post. Shocking stuff."
I don't condone sledging but there is no proof of anything was said save for a vague accusation where nobody was named. The only thing that can be proven is what Philly did in front of the cameras. If you feel that it was a reasonable thing to do on a football field then fair enough, that is your prerogative, but trying to paint philly as the victim in that incident? Get a grip!

Throw broad aspersions all you like, it doesn't change what happened on the field that day. KD is a big boy and he was fine afterwards thankfully. It's done and dusted now. If there is any truth in the accusation Philly made then I condemn that 100%, it doesn't give him the right to do what he did at the same time. Will leave it at that.
