GAA Discussion / Re: Should An Glenn object?

And while I’m at it...I presume HQ can never review TV coverage again without an objection being in place from an aggrieved party (the loser of the game usually) which is an odd precedent to set for themselves, since they refuse to act on this case without an objection.

Very odd from HQ.

Play should stop at the first break in play after “official” time is up. 

This will be the final window for substitutions. 

The amount of additional time will be announced before play resumes.  Referee can extend additional time in case of time-wasting.  No further subs allowed...not even in case of injury. 

Tough, but fair.

With Rd 1 of the league starting on 28 Jan, it is time for the gaaboard posters to show the expert knowledge espoused on here.

Same rules as last year...predict a winner or predict a draw.  Correctly picking the winner gets 1 point, correctly picking a draw gets 3 points.  Competition entries close the Friday night at midnight (even if no games on the Saturday).  You can change selections anytime up to the Frdiay midnight deadline.

I will post the games and you can list out your winners, or put the winner in boldface .  Warning...I will use an automated system to transfer your picks, so if you list your picks in a different order to the way I post the fixtures, you will be hurting yourself.

For those interested in such things, a short summary of last year's games:  Of the 112 games played, there were 47 home wins (near enough to 42%), 50 away wins (about 44.5%), and 15 Draws (just about 13.5%).  I think it was "in hiding" that took the tactical route of picking mostly draws and home advantage is not great it seems.

There were a total of nearly 60 participants last year, although some dropped out for various (legitimate) reasons...hoping we can beat that number in Week 1.

I plan to post each round's results by late on the Sunday night, but if I don't get back in time from a game it might be Monday evening, so don't go all crazy worrying about my safety or something...and I will not state which games I attend either!

First named team is scheduled to be at home...but do your own due diligence on venue/time.  I'll add the rules for the 4 finals as we get closer to that time. 

Can David McKeown repeat as champion, or will someone else have a better algo?  All to play for. 

Any questions?

Next post will have the Rd 1 fixtures...enjoy.

Do any of you practice intermittent fasting?

Not sure if its the same but a friend of mine does it, 3 days on 4 days off...eats like a squirrel 3 days and normal eating 4 days... Been doing it for years, looks well body shape and he's over 60

I could be wrong but I dont think thats the same thing. Intermittent fasting, I believe, is fast for maybe 18 hours a day and getting all your food in during a 6 hour window

Had good results on a 5 and 2 diet...practically nothing on Mondays and Thursdays beyond water.

Howl on here  a flippin’ minute  ;D

Do I not get something for predicting  the right finalists at  least?

I could win win this  yet!  ;)


You picked France to win the final and you picked Argentina to lose the final.

Null points for you, as you got nothing correct.

Plus, you finished 24 points back...in the Grand National you would have pulled up a while back.  Reading the entrants names always has me thinking I’m commentating on the Grand National.

Croatia get 5 points today and Morocco get 1.  Nobody picked Croatia and 3 had Morocco...Aristo60, BennyHarp and smort.

For the final tomorrow, entrants can get points for their bowl picks PLUS their final prediction.  For example, if Argentina win 3-0, an entrant who picked Argentina out of the bowl gets 6 points.  If the same entrant has Argentina beating France as their Final prediction, another 10 points.
