HAVING not won a League or Championship in 14 attempts, you would imagine that the vast majority of readers would have concurred with Cahair O’Kane’s critique of Down football in last week’s ‘Kicking Out’ column
CHINNED by newly-promoted Clare, players walking off the panel, talk of angry exchanges on the line, a wind of general discontent swirling right across the Mournes – and that’s all before the Off The Fence punters have had their say.
WELCOME to the first Off The Fence of 2017 – the rebirth of the readers’ column where you, yes you, no… not you, yer man with the bright red face jabbing his finger in that other fella’s face, have carte blanche to vent your spleen and let rip about whatever sporting issue is grinding your gears.
SOMETIMES producing an exhibition of razor-sharp counter-attacking football, scoring five goals and registering one of the highest tallies ever amassed in the Ulster Championship just isn’t good enough.
AT last. After six games, 13 goals, 144 points, 479 mentions of the word transition, 107 shimmies, 106 by Sean Cavanagh, a fair few hidings and a handful of noteworthy slaps, the Ulster Championship is finally – finally – up and running.
