Had a look at the referee's report and to be honest nowhere near as bad as the pearl clutchers on here were suggesting. Bit partitionist for my liking but hardly the worst thing I've heard at a match. Bit of an over reaction from some on here.

Think some people have a vendetta against Bonner. This is odd as he has always struck me as someone who gave everything to the job. I was glad to see him step down as his time was up but he has given a lot to the county.

Replying To Lockjaw:  "If what was reportedly said is true it could open up a very unpleasant can of worms.
No need for it at all, regardless of how poor the officiating was."
12 week ban coming right up and it could and should be more.

Replying To Ulsterchamps72:  "Re-read my post slowly to ensure you understand it correctly, a member of the executive told me, not an old friend or pub talk rubbish."
So why would a member of the executive randomly tell you ?

So it's either :

1. You've completely made this up

OR

2. A friend on the executive told you and you have betrayed their confidence

Which one are you ?

Replying To rorysboys:  "Yea your club wudnt cry about a referee. Lol"
No issue moaning about a referee - the issue you're struggling to understand is the language and sectarian abuse is crossing a line……

that's not acceptable and he deserves everything he gets..

Replying To eunans4ever:  "Brilliant result , gotta admire them - on what planet is that sour grapes??

Can you stop looking for reasons to be deliberately offended"
You continually insult our brilliant team by refusing to call us by our proper name, Naomh Conaill. Your name for us seems to be getting longer all the time? Keep your half hearted praise.

The result of the St Eunans v Glen match a few years will have no bearing on Saturday week......

Replying To Lockjaw:  "I don't think there's a club in the county that can honestly say they always treat referees with respect.
But a line has to be drawn somewhere, otherwise noone will want to take up the whistle. Who could blame them? Some of the abuse they're subjected to is horrendous. And this is in an era where we're supposed to all be more aware when it comes to mental health.

Clubs rightly promote initiatives to support mental health campaigns and charities. But does that all then go out the window when officials are verbally and sometimes even physically attacked? Most refs are genuine people who don't go out to make mistakes and have no hidden agendas. Time we all started to respect them a bit more if you ask me,"
Some of them far from genuine believe me. Hidden agendas

Sad little lives the same people if they met bonner would clap him on the back. Would be very surprised if bonner said what he's accused of. Can't see him taking this lying down

And he seems to be avoiding the question in regards to his u21 team only having 17 players at the weekend in a must win game

Wouldn't you love to know, but I don't have to be a personal friend of the individual, they could be married to one of my siblings, I could be married to one of their siblings, I might work with them, I might sit on a committee with them, but to quote yourself, it is none of your business who or how they told me, but the facts are the man from Annagry was approached. By the way applications are closed at 5pm tomorrow evening.

Replying To tickets: "Yeah it should be interesting.

I feel the u21 competition doesn't get the respect it deserves.

Eunansforever- How did the club only have 17 available players for gweedore game?? Has the wheels come off underage?"
We made 4 subs so unless my eyes deceived me at the game we didn't play 13 a side ??

Try reading a little slower my friend….

And it wasn't a must win game - the game v termon is must win to stay in the competition…

That's not it at all - your following me around getting deliberately offended all the time - I don't see you pulling up any other posters for saying glenties etc ???

Last time I checked it's a free world - I'll call them whatever I want.

There is blinded loyality but there also is absolute delusional……..

Partitionist comments might not offend you, but I'm sure people living in the six counties might not feel the same. Thankfully the horrible days of the Troubles are a thing of the past now. But being a Gael in the North wasn't as easy in those days as it was for the likes of us here in Donegal, or in other parts of the Republic. Offensive comments along those lines don't really correlate with what the GAA is supposed to be about.

That's the point, it's shouldn't be anyway partitionist. Especially as the GAA is an all island organisation.
