The player was dropped by Cavan. Nothing more. So for someone to say Cavan treated him unfairly is totally incorrect.

Players are dropped from panels over the country all the time.

Read back over the thread. I previously wished Seanie well. The Cavan panel don't want him and I'm happy with that. He did annoy me running around Croke Park with Kildare before the transfer went through which I feel showed a lack of respect to both Cavan and his club Cavan Gaels.

However, I wouldn't care if Johnston moved to Monaghan, Leitrim, Down, Fermanagh or any other county. What annoys me is this downright ludicrous opinion that he was treated unfairly in Cavan.
Why should he show cavan county respect when he was dropped? Doesn't make sense to me why should he give two hoots!!

He looked at home with the Kildare lads sure more luck to him

I'll answer your questions when you answer mine above.

Between yourself, Tayto Lover, Premierstone and Mighty Sticks, this forum is gone to the dogs.

I think I'll go back to sticking to the Cavan thread. This is getting beyond a joke to be honest.

Are you annoyed at the circumstances of transfer in general? By that I mean would you feel the same way if it was a county other than Cavan that was involved

To be fair Felexicon, early doors a number of posters from Cavan wished Seanie well while been disappointed that Seanie couldn't have kept the head down and played his way back into contention - it was fairly obvious that Val Andrews was never long for the managers job in Cavan but he chose a different route. For me the turning point was when he appeared in the national press with the Kildare panel - that was disrespectful to his county and the way of the game.

Added to that there has been numerous posters here alleging that Cavan/ the Cavan manager "acted the bollix" - that's plainly wrong and annoying!

Wasn't he also dropped into the Cavan Gaels junior team at some stage ? Sounds like a lad with motivation issues - which I'm sure would be addressed pulling on a lily jersey, because McGeeney would give a lad like that short shift.

Hell to the no, I'd be fuming if it happened as there would be no reason for him to transfer as its a commutable distance. I'd hold the dirt beneath my shoe in higher esteem.
If he say got a great job in Donegal or West Cork etc (i.e not commutable) and moved cus of this recession fella, then it'd be hard be begrudge him. Good luck to ya, just try not score against Kildare if we met your new team.

Any in regards to Johnston transfer?
Do I think it's a good precedent for the game? No.
Do I think it will be a big issue in the future? No, the fella's in CCCC/CAC will have to re-draft the rules to tighten this up.
Do I want Seanie at Kildare? Of course, he seems to be a talented player and I'm clearly a big hypocrit but at least I'm willing to admit it. I'd be only delighted if he kicked the winning point in ANY game this season. I think talks of an All-Ireland is pre-mature as we haven't beaten any of the big Div. 1 teams in I don't know how long.

Apologies for essay. Hope this can tie up a few loose knots and then get this thread (which is going in circles) closed in the near future.
Most sensible post on this thread in ages but gets lost in the rest of the crap. Time to close it and move on!!

Why do people keep calling for the thread to be closed.
I like to see peoples ongoing opinion on the matter and if you don't then don't read it.
It's not a case of well i'm finished with it so no one else should have it

In fairness 75 pages sorta determines that it's on its last lap tho ... there's offshoot threads which could be created/contributed to but nothing new on SJ saga

Because its going round and round in circles/ people are raising good points or asking questions but they are not being answered or addressed because the thread is being dragged off topic so a serious discussion is not possible at this stage.

I too like to see peoples opinion on the matter but that's not really happening because its being dragged off topic - in last half hour alone we've had the goading troll posts/ the break a leg comment and now a question of how Seanie got his job - how can we have a discussion/ exchange of views in the middle of all that

You're about as good a lier as you are at posting factually correct information.

I think this thread has ran it's course at this stage so I'm locking it as there seems to be too much back biting/snide remarks/hassle involved in leaving it open.
