  • Hair we go again: Do you have to be hip or be square? - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    than the heavy stockings that had a habit of sliding down into the boot especially when wet A player s choice of boots has become interesting too A year or two ago New Balance were a sporting brand of the past until hipsters began sporting their early 80s trainers Now the likes of Paddy McBrearty and Bernard Brogan are wearing their boots Maybe that owes something to the move away from the increasingly naff coloured boot and the hunger for something more traditional The apex of that cool is now the black out boot without any flashes of colour Conor McManus is a big man for these reminding me of Mike Tyson s favouring of the plain black workboot in the ring Such fashion consciousness has spread from the playing fields to the television studios with the Sunday night edition of the Sunday Game morphing into an edition of Expose We may have hit a low point last weekend when a west Kerry defender wore a bowtie and a tuxedo Somewhere Paddy Bawn Brosnan was wondering how it has all come to this The curious thing is that as Gaelic footballers and hurlers become more image conscious the action on the field is becoming less colourful There is less chance for a player to display the skills of the game as every player has to give himself over to the required system of the team We think of a man like Maurice Fitzgerald What was his unique selling point A tan That makes him no different to many men on the western shores All he had were his socks rolled into a cuff yet you couldn t take your eyes off him One of the last true originals of the game without requiring any of the gimmicks Follow BelTel Sport How to Complain If you have a complaint about the editorial content of the Belfast Telegraph or Sunday Life then contact the Editor here If you are not satisfied with the response provided then you can contact the Independent Press Standards Organisation here From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More Down and already out but Burns must be given time By Declan Bogue Excuse us while we perform the knee jerk of all knee jerks but it s not too early to say that Down s season in both league and Championship is a write off Jamie Clarke s decision to exit Armagh

  • Armagh must show class over Cavan brawl row - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    Keeping up that kind of faux hate for the outside world is sabotage to the soul Not only have they blackballed the national media but they also refused to speak to the local newspapers the ones that carry underage reports fixtures and results The Armagh county board cannot be impressed with this scenario For a body that has found themselves in turmoil this is an unacceptable scenario They need to act fast and demonstrate some class Because it has been sorely lacking in this episode to date Ryan s response to cruel loss speaks volumes for Antrim There was a certain poignancy and that gut wrenching familiarity to what happened in Ballycastle to Antrim on Sunday Antrim could be forgiven for thinking that they had Offaly s number this season Low ebb and public humiliation at the hands of Kilkenny aside Offaly are still a traditional hurling county and any win that Antrim get over them would be seen as a huge leap forward In the league Saffrons manager Kevin Ryan threw a nice little rope a dope fielding a second string knowing that both sides would feature in the relegation play off which Antrim won a week later Then they also got the better of them in the round robin qualifying campaign for Leinster Nobody was surprised at this In order to beat them in do or die Championship they needed a few things They needed composure which they had in abundance throughout from the likes of Paul Shields They needed their subs to make an impact which they did and they required a defiant goalkeeping display which Chris O Connell duly delivered Many times Antrim teams have spent their journey home from far flung hurling strongholds bemoaning their luck and speaking of how they might have had to work harder than their opponents from frees But the free awarded to Derek Morkam who jumped into Chris McGuinness and missed an interception was brutally sore on them Brian Carroll s lob into the goalmouth then ghosted past a thicket of airborne hurls and bounced off the astroturf laid in the Ballycastle goalmouth to fly into the net and secure an unlikely Offaly win Television replays did not do any favours for referee James McGrath Nor will it help McGrath with Tomás Mulcahy pointing out in the studio of The Sunday Game I looked at it on three occasions and I think the corner forward was just turning the corner back to let the ball inside him To me it was a bad decision and one that will cost Antrim dearly It might have been easy for Antrim to dive into a vat of self pity but manager Ryan merely shrugged and said Sport is cruel and that s it You have good days and bad days It spoke of a man who knows he is part of a long term project And that can only be good news for Antrim Follow BelTel Sport How to Complain If you have

  • An Ulster Sports Museum would be a pantheon fit for Northern Ireland's heroes - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    Major titles with Darren Clarke and Graeme McDowell helping him out in recent years in a trend started by Fred Daly in 1947 As I say the list is endless with Dame Mary Peters our golden girl surely given a podium all to herself The Ulster Sports Museum is Mary s final sporting wish She delivered for us and now we should be delivering for her I m told our sporting heroes would be more than happy to lend their memorabilia to a sports museum in Northern Ireland That s a good start The thing is money is also required a to find a suitable venue for a sports museum and b to be able to sustain it given the running and staffing costs The Northern Ireland Executive is suffering from budget cuts right now but given some of the cash it has thrown away down the years what about investing in a fantastic idea like this In years to come if operated successfully it would pay for itself and soon turn over a profit which could be handed over to worthy causes An Ulster Sports Museum wouldn t just be attractive for local people it would be visited by tourists too Already more than 120 000 have been to see a Travelling Sports Exhibition which is now residing ironically enough at Stormont having been enjoyed from Ards to Armagh Ballymena to Belfast Cavan to Coleraine and Derry to Donegal Former Ulster and Ireland rugby star Nigel Carr who is the acting chair of the Ulster Sports Museum Association said That is only the tip of the iceberg of what could be done From our perspective a sports museum hits so many buttons It is important from a cultural perspective to recognise the achievements of Northern Ireland people in the past It also has the ability to bring people together from different backgrounds and communities to celebrate GAA boxing football or whatever And perhaps most importantly it could inspire our future generations It would celebrate the past to inspire for the future We are a small province but we have world champions Olympic champions people who have been and are number one in their chosen sport and successful in their chosen walks of life I think having a sports museum wouldn t just be inspirational but would bring a new type of person into a museum who may not necessarily go there and be educational in all sorts of ways as well On potential Government funding Carr added We understand that at the moment that a lot of the departmental spending has been cut back 10 and there is a lot of pressure on budgets and public expenditure We recognise this is a very difficult time in the public sector with all the cuts That said we think it is something that could be incorporated perhaps within the museum structure The association is currently in discussions about having a temporary base which could see it set up at the Ulster
