Tyrone Withdrawl From AI Semi Final.

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Smart move by Kerry agreeing to another week - they want the game in preparation for Mayo. Little to be gained giving Tyrone another grievance to add to their list.

Will the final also be put back a week?

Replying To Ulsterman:  "Over to Croke Park now. Will they do the right thing and give Tyrone another week OR is the fact that Dublin are out freak HQ that Tyrone may actually now have a chance?"
Or maybe they will give them another two weeks to help Tyrone recover.

Replying To dingle2:  "As a Kerryman and a medical doctor with years of Public Health experience I am totally behind Tyrone's decision to state that they are unable to fulfil the fixture. Given the current guidelines they are well entitled to adopt such a position especially as all their players are amateur and are local club members as well as being work colleagues and family members.
The real problem is the ludicrous "specialist" public health utterances. These change daily and have no scientific basis but we all have fallen for a "fear" factor and like in the Civil War turn neighbour against neighbour.

Hermann Goering stated during the Nuremburg trials when asked how his government convinced the German people to accept his regime - his response has echoes of what is now happening ..."It was easy....the only thing a government needs to turn people into slaves is fear. If you can find something to scare them you can make them do anything you want"

So here we are at a similar situation in Ireland and indeed the world. The WHO (under a brutal and oppressive Ethopian Government Minister and China backed Communist apologist) belatedly declared a Pandemic, stated "track and trace" only remedy, refused to investigate China from Dec. 2019 to Feb 2021 and in Feb 2021 accepted the limited access that China allowed and now accepts that they need more information but China (like Ulster) says no!!

So now our football championship has been upended for a second year in a row. Not a big deal in the scheme of things but all underage football/hurling and all other children's sports and social activities also upended in a similar manner. This is a huge issue for health and welfare of our people and our coming generation.

Shame on the WHO and it's morally bankrupt and corrupt leader. Shame on our lame duck Public Health Officials who followed blindly and without question.

Please let out games go on and our youth thrive. Please let us as free Irish people decide for ourselves what we do or do not want to do and not be subjugated to the oppressive "make it up as we go along" dictats offered in the name of "science". There is NO science behind all of this.

Tyrone should be free to paly whenever and wherever as should every boy and girl in Ireland today, tomorrow or at anytime. Please I beg people take a step back and think and rationalise all the forced media and governmental/NEPHET fodder that has been forced upon us without any allowed critical analysis.

I have I Masters in Public Health Degree. The bould Tony got his the same year, same class as I (1996). Doctor's do differ and I differ hugely here an the health and welfare of our future generations if this charade is allowed to continue.

Out in a field playing hurling, football, rugby, soccer, hockey, tennis or any other sport or athletic activity is where our young (and not so young) people should be and not "locked up/down" in both a physical and especially mental very confining space.

So please GAA hierarchy take the lead here. Challenge Tony and NEPHET. Ask for hard figures and validation (do not accept possible computer projections - all of which have been wrong to date). And above all give the Tyrone team and mentors the time required to meaningfully participate in our 2021 Championship. All us amateur citizens and GAA members deserve this.


Dr. P."
Thanks for that honest and frank view on the pandemic situation. We have to acknowledge COVID is here for a while, and get on with life.

Replying To ryan:  "Some bluffing from Logan and Canavan. Put Dooher out in front of the press then. Canavan has a big influence in this Tyrone set-up behind the scenes. Logan mad to build a mentality in Tyrone that everyone is against them. Remember the controversy around there all-ireland u21s in 2015 which all above were involved in."
Aye, you'd know

Re-scheduling is a complete waste of time, it'll be a tanking. Even when you mostly recover from covid, your energy is non-existent for weeks or months afterwards. Sub par is no way to be v Kerry! Still, it will force management to look at fringe players and give them a chance to stake a claim on a position for next year.
