Sir - I was disappointed to read former Tyrone manager, Art McRory's comments (Sunday Independent, 24 May) in relation to Dermot Crowe's suggestion that the sledging solution in GAA lies in leadership on the sideline.

His statement that, in the 1990s, Meath had a very simple tactic of "targeting the top player on the other team and everyone within 20m would hit him with everything they had", is not only factually incorrect, but an insult to the intelligence and integrity of Sean Boylan, a man that I never once heard encourage any form of physical or verbal intimidation in the 10 years I had the privilege of playing under his guidance.

I can guarantee that all the players under his stewardship could put their hands on their heart and say likewise. Furthermore his comments had nothing to do with the article in question.
