Some people prefer football and some prefer hurling. I prefer football myself,but I would never discriminate against hurling.

McEntee's comments re burning hurls - 9 Like(s)
Better to read it but this is some of his quotes.. "The challenges facing Meath hurling have not been causes by Gerry McEntee,he outlined his opinion and he answered honestly" "Meath hurling could be much stronger,could have a higher profile inside and outside the county" "Its not Gerry McEntee who is the enemy of Meath hurling,Who is the real enemy? What are hurling people going to do about it? The evidence of the last 30 years or so suggests they will blame someone else" Its a good article overall,but the general theme is for hurling people to stop blaming everyone else and do something about it.He also points to the improvements made in Kerry,despite them been a football mad county..

Replying To OLLIE:  "It looks like a Meath and Kildare Leinster semi-final appearance but hopefully the Wee County can spoil the party. Louth have only reached one Leinster semi-final since 1998 so the odds are stacked against them."
louth are getting better,be interesting to see how ye get on against tipp this week.

ha any corner back who gets 7 points wouldn't be playing corner back. :)

Meath v Fermanagh - 7 Like(s)

Replying To Ratoath Royal:  "I've been a critic of Biggy in the past and he has to take some of the blame for us not closing out the game on Sunday, but he shouldn't be dropped unless he's at risk of burning himself out. Remember, he hasn't had a single break between club and intercounty since 2015. Remember, an average game for him on Sunday still meant he was our top scorer from play. Who would you replace him with."
agree,just needs to be aware of what is around him.

Replying To StickFan:  "i feared for them after Kerry got the early goal, responded well from there top the last 10 minutes, the sideline should have reacted better to the situation we founf ourselves in, 13 men behind the ball, wouldnt agree that Kelly was playing out of his skin, you obviously havent seen to much of him if you think hes was that good yesterday cos by hes standards he was very poor."
from what i have seen of the hurlers they just don't panic... is the game against laois saturday or sunday?

Replying To LeitrimRoyal99:  "[quote=Ibbecek:  "Hope all those knockers of Mick O'Dowd now realize what we have bought. Remember after four moths last year Miicko had secured our Division 2 status and won the O'Byrne Cup Andy Mc already behind on that score. Also by April last year Meath County Players had played at least 5 club matches. Some this year haven't played one. Absolutely farcical that A.McEntee allowed dictate like this. County not playing for 6 bloody weeks. Come on."
Behind the score of winning an O'Byrne cup. Will you cop on. Mick O'Dowd we were 6-8 in championship. Wins against Wicklow x2, Wexford, Carlow, Kildare and Louth. We lost to Westmeath to the first time ever. Went 0-4 in qualifiers. And ohh yeah we also lost to Dublin 3 times by 7,16 and 10 points. The 16 and 10 point losses being our worst to Dublin since the mid 70s. And yeah we had a few decent league campaigns (9 points in div 2 twice, same as we got in Andy's first year). But his last year was the worst of the 4 leagues. Most importantly only one time in the 4 years MOD was manager (1st half Dubs 2013) did I feel an ounce of pride about the team I was watching and that is sad. So yeah maybe I will be proven wrong about Andy and maybe he won't be as good as I think. But to say he is behind a manager who brought Meath to all time low's because he won a Mickey Mouse cup in January is nonsense and you know well it is. So give Andy a championship and then come back and slander him, don't just push your own agenda. RANT OVER"]in a nutshell..

Replying To OLLIE:  "Meath and Kildare had some great battles down through the years. Who could forget the three match saga in 1997? Remarkable both Meath and Kildare have played 37 times in the Championships and it's even steven with both counties winning 15 matches each and there have been 7 draws. Meath have had the upper hand recently winning the last two Championship matches."
yet kildare's general record of winning things has been far worse than meaths.

Dublin v Meath - 7 Like(s)

Replying To Jack_Goff:  "I'm just glad I experienced 15 years of the Dublin meath rivalry at its peak. Most young Dublin/meath fans will never experience it now and I feel sorry for them too. Personally I get my kicks from other sports now, like soccer and rugby. No point clinging onto the gaa because I'll be an old man before any good times return. I also enjoy a few big hurling and football games as a neutral. but it's funny how when I was younger losing to dublin was devastating. Now it don't care and can't be bothered even attending. The fact the gulf is so big makes it easier then if we were coming close to dublin and still had hope. Club football is what I really care about with the gaa now. Although I still enjoy watching meath in the league."
Thats a bit fair-weather....

Keegan Cup - 7 Like(s)

Replying To Ratoath Royal:  "Awful game but congratulations to Simonstown. The pitch looked incredibly slippy in both games today. Countless instances of players losing their footing. Very surprising given that it's been relatively dry over the last week. McKeever 100% deserved the MOTM award and hopefully, for Meath's sake, he can commit to the county side in 2018. Was worried at how poor Conlon was for Simonstown but it wasn't til after the game I heard he was sick during the week. Hard luck to Summerhill. Never went right for them. They kicked an awful amount of wides and the missed goal in the first half was a massive turning point. Simonstown have a decent enough draw in Leinster with the Wexford champions up first so you'd hope that they can get a run going. Can't help but think what might have been for Meath's midfield looking at O'Rourke and Nash for Simonstown and Gillespie on the sidelines for Summerhill."
Shane O'Rourke was by far the best player on the field

Replying To Barney123:  "What club are you from or can you not say? And it's funny browncows saying that some posters mix up fact with fiction and then he says we came third last year. We had to beat Laois on the last day to avoid relegation if my memory is correct. At the start of the league last year the management were aiming for promotion but by the end of the league they tried to make out our aim was always to maintain our div 2 status."
100% true,also one questions whether we would win that game if laois did not get a player sent off. look were laois are now too..
