Retiring GAA Stars tribute thread - May cause brain damage


#3784

Niall McNamee. A top class scoring forward. Only 31 too.


#3785

You’d have good odds on him retiring at 31


#3786

Hard to keep going when the prospects are so shit.


#3787

It amused me that Seán Cavanagh didn’t bother to acknowledge this twee likebait tweet from Dick Clerkin.


#3788

Does “liking” it not count as acknowledging it?


#3789

Clerkin is a fucking ballbag of a man.


#3790

Clerkin is absolutely painful, an almighty dose and one of the new breed of GAA pundits who are Croke Park company men.


#3791

Wooly found it hilarious that cavanagh onky responded to a few tweets from big hitters like stephen Ferris and caul pollins


#3792

Declan O Sullivan, Aidan O Mahony, Tomás O Sé, Henry Shefflin, all the big hitters. Collins got the nod because of some piss up they were on at the All Stars.


#3793

Hmmm. I’ve the same thought process as him. :eek:

Cavanagh replying to AP MCCoy appeared on my timeline but then no reply at all to Dick who really went with an original and inventive angle.


#3794

His son’s what? Or his sons? What’s Dick trying to say here?

Is ‘yours’ a word?


#3795

Didn’t Cavanagh pull a sickie above against Cork in 2009 as the current FOTY


#3796

The opening chapter in Mickey Harte’s book covers that matter. He put the thing in the context of the pressures SC was under . Bizarre stuff it was . I thought at the time Sean Cavanagh could never look at MH in the same light .


#3797

There’s a depth of character in the man’s face, a solid decent fellow I would say. No doubt in my mind a future president of the Gaa. Best of luck to you Sean.


#3798

Or possibly a future President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.


#3799

That too maybe assuming he is an accountant.


#3800

Yes I remember that, quite bizarre from Cavanagh to pull a sickie, Harte to write about it in his book while he was still managing and SC still playing
