Replying To Galway9801:  "That works both ways though, until armagh won the all Ireland in 02 and tyrone the following year I had never appreciated the level of prejudice and bitter anti Southern sentiment that came from the ulster teams, particularly the 6. Sometimes I felt as if simply being from one of the 26 counties was enough to have me automatically labelled as some sort of jealous little ignoramus who should unconditionally and unquestioningly support any ulster team, regardless of their style of play or off the ball antics.
I had been following the gah for a few years before that and had always wanted ulster teams to win as the province struggled at the time but you could only listen to so many anti Southern jibes, usually to do with our perceived lack of manliness and our softness, before you'd get a bit tired of it, especially considering that some of the diving and feigning injury from that tyrone team was atrocious."
Id be happy enough not to have your support as your continually throwing insults at Tyrone
The ulster teams for years were told that thy had no power or strength when they came to Croker. In 02 and 03 Armagh and Tyrone came with plenty of power and strength, what happened was that the GAA establishment didnt like these uppity northerners coming in and winning SAM (puke football and Ill eat my hat if Brian Dooher wins and AI) . So if you believe that a county from the "6" may have an anti southern sentiment, you are probably right with good cause.

Armagh and Tyrone never got any credit for what they achieved in the 00's , instead of looking at some of the football they played it was more focused on the dark arts, of which (supposedly) the likes of Kerry and even Galway were not capable off... What a load of ****

Ha. Telling people to refrain unless they are being constructive. Your OP and thread is not constructive.

You are stirring it, presumably as you've nothing better for doing as Tyrone dumped ye out a few weeks.

From my time in Tyrone I met several Irish speakers from Gaeltacht areas of the county. The O Neill from Tyrone and Red Hugh O Donnell from Donegal were the last remaining genuinely Irish political leaders. For anybody to accuse either of those counties of Britishness is frankly amazing.

Replying To thegadfly:  "I'm in no way questioning the "irishness" of anyone in the six counties.
In fact I would say they are more irish than freestaters and blueshirts in the Republic.
I'm a republican myself so your post is way off the mark.
What I'm getting at is, britishness creeping into the terraces at GAA games.
Your post is complete rubbish with all due respect."
Start a thread on britishness (whatever that is) creeping into the terraces at GAA games so? You won't though, just a keyboard warrior with a pathetic attempt to troll Tyrone GAA.

Best of luck to Monaghan and Tyrone on Saturday. Should be a cracker of a game.

Do you think the blanket defense shouldn't have been criticized or the likes of the muck Donegal played under McGuinness should have been hailed.

The 2011 All-Ireland Semi-Final between Dublin and Donegal ended up Dublin 0-08 - 0-06 Donegal, in front of 81,000 with probably half of the scores coming from frees, who wants to watch or be part of s***e like that.

Booed off the pitch and rightly so, even I would have to thank Dublin for saving us from the that Donegal muck ball.

So it's not all about any anti northern agenda, the great Down teams of the 60's are still held in very high regard, so you can reap what you sow.

Oh stop, please please stop,, if I had to name any sort of culture of begrudgery in the gaa, I doubt anti ulster begrudgery would even make the top 3.

Dublin,kerry, kilkenny, all get it way worse than any ulster team, the latter two get it for committing the awful crime of simply being good, (we all know the Dublin debate, let's not start that here).
Kilkenny had an awesome team from 06-15,and their recognition for their greatness amounted to bring accused of destroying hurling.
Alot of gaa fans want Dublin destroyed, literally destroyed.
When armagh took on kerry in 02 the entire country was rooting for them. If tyrone face kerry or Dublin they'll have the neutral vote too,so in the words of John Kimble,, stop whining.

ah yeah I suppose it can be both ways...like the Catholic community up there, they probably felt abandoned by the South (which politically at least they were anyway) and I suppose that creeps into the Sport side of it too..I always liked the Ulster counites over all..I know some of the football was terrible and is by times that they play..alot down here isnt great either I suppose...

Awk bless those serial winners of trophies having to listen to neutrals wanting the underdog to beat them. That's terrible abuse altogether. You never see that in sport do you! Did any of them go to matches as proud GAA people and have to listen to jeers from so called fellow GAA supporters or opposition players like "We dont pay our taxes to the queen" or "away back up to Britain with ye" on top of all the constant bigotry recieved from the other side of the community the rest of the week for daring to wear GAA gear in public places or play hurling in the local park? Or have the RUC constantly harassing bus loads of players and supporters travelling to matches for the same reasons as the other 26 counties who could travel freely without any danger? I think if the 6 county hate only extended as far as on field success you would never have had the seige mentality that existed back when Armagh and Tyrone were lifting Sam. Perhaps take that kindergarten advice you gave and apply it to yourself if that's the best you can do.

Good man, not everyone knows their history so well when they spout the 'British' nonsense and happily find division in the island, sneering at northern lads for partition. Sad enough mindset.

Just for your information. I called out a section of the Tyrone following for bringing a truly ignorant banner to GAA matches that originated with Millwall soccer hooligans in England.
It's nothing got to do with them beating us this year. They were the better team. No Cavan person is sore over that. Now we'd be sore if it had been Monaghan that beat us but thankfully that hasn't happened for a long time.

No matter how bad of a game you think it was, it was great compared to the rubbish lots of people spend big money to go and see over the water. Pure scutter compared to even a bad game of GAA. Give me Leitrim v Carlow and it would be better than any Premiership match.

Replying To Fairplayalways:  "the problem in ways is the attitude of so called 26 counties (free state if you will) supporters often labelling northern teams as Brittish, which their players find often very offensive, and they working against the odds, particulary in the past, to keep their game alive (and often their lives for playing it) Some 26 county supporters showed their education with such anti Northern team dislike over the years...if anything Northern teams are more Irish than the ones down here in 26 I often think....Some supporters down here are like alot of thd population very blinkered to what went on in NI, and that is a coversation for another day and not for on here, but the history of some of our county nick names might be a starting place for some of those particular fans down here who always seem to ready for a dig at the northern teams when they come down to play here...anyway, no point really disccussing, these people have their minds made up already....goof post if I might say...the issue though is reversed now as the Tyrone supporters think they will never change some of our supporters and they are probably right..."
FairPlay Fairplayalways, the future looks bright for Offaly GAA.

I met plenty from the Inishowen peninsula sneering at and imitating their own county men from the West Donegal Gaeltacht in a nasty way, that's an even sadder mindset.

Look at another of your county men, the self appointed "Ulster Football Spokesman" on this forum, the fine example he is setting when it comes to disrespecting other Gaels and the bad name he manages to single handedly give Donegal.

Actually the scutter Donegal played drove many away from Gaelic football.

Ulster coaches coaching young kids to be "sweepers", now that's what you call real scutter !

Leitrim v Carlow would be a good game actually, they'd try and play football anyway.

It's not an ignorant banner. You seem to be the only 1 offended by it! Are you a West Ham fan by any chance?
