GAA Discussion / Re: Diving in our game
« on: Today at 07:19:06 PM »
Was just speaking to a Galway man who was at that game. He is not a Corofin man but was beside one at the match. He was in line with the incident and stated that he is 100% sure that Farragher kneed the Moorefield player in the head. He also said it was deliberate. And he added that the Corofin man beside him said straight after the incident that Farragher could be in trouble for this. So obviously he had saw something in it too.

Make of that what you want.
Farragher's lack of protest about the sending off made me think that there must have been contact but the TG4 camera angle looked like no contact was made and Healy's reaction on then ground did not coincide with any potential blind side contact.

Round 4 coming up. You'd have to fancy Antrim to bounce back from dropping a point to Wicklow and now beat London comfortably. They are unlikely to get caught a second time.
Laois have impressed under Sugrue; he has revitalised the older players and brought in hungry younger lads to fight for those starting jerseys. Cannot see Wicklow being within 8-10 points of them even in Aughrim.
Carlow may be sitting on top of the table but who have they beaten?? Leitrim, Limerick and London. nothing to get excited about. Waterford are capable of so much more - a big team with good ball players. That will be tight and I go for Waterford here.
Leitrim and Limerick have nothing but pride to play for and Limerick should prevail.
I fancy Laois to wrap up the division early and blood more players before the championship opener v Wexford. O Carroll and Lowry stood out of rUCD throughout the Sigerson campaign and have really strengthened the forward division.

They beat Leitrim in better fashion than Laois did, beat London comfortably away and beat Limerick in comfortable fashion.
Laois beat Limerick well to be fair but conceded 3-10 against Leitrim and struggled to beat Waterford. There is not much between them and Carlow might be the more tactically astute and better prepared team. I'd expect both to go up tbh.

Is there any rule against feigning injury at the moment? This needs to be stamped out before it gets worse and ends up like soccer where it's part and parcel of the game.

It can't get any worse as it happens in pretty much every game.

Some result for Monaghan by the looks of it, I thought Monaghan were a very average team when they beat us in Newbridge while Kerry have looked class up until now but February football can throw up shocks.


I don't see why it should be seen as a huge shock. We haven't stayed in Division 1 the last few years on pure luck, and we've now beaten Kerry in the league 3 of the last 4 years. And with players missing on both sides, it was hard to know how it would pan out.

Great result and it's a step closer to staying up again, which is vital as the top flight experience is fantastic for the young lads coming through. Had to settle for the radio today, sounds like the ref was pretty bad, with us coming out the better for it given the penalty was soft. Great first half and by all accounts we should have had a bigger lead. But then Kerry came out much stronger in the second half. When they cut the lead to a point and we went a man down, I was sure they would win. But it was encouraging that we held firm and went up the other end to work an insurance score.

Credit where its due, you obviously don't fear them. Some counties are beat before the ball is thrown in and it might be the difference when it comes to staying up.

Looks like cavan in disarray and all the doom and gloom pre league wasnt justified. Very good win today and in the driving seat for promotion now. Meath have a real task on their hands now if they are to get out of division 2. Every game is massive next weekend but in particular cork Cavan and tipp meath

3 points between 1st and 7th, all to play for.

Great and huge win for Monaghan. Relegation is probably down to Kildare and one of Tyrone, Mayo or Donegal.

Joe Quaid has to go.

It would have been an absolute travesty if Moorefield had of won that, Corofin as expected operate a couple of levels above them and if it wasn't for the sending off would have been more comfortable. That being said Moorefield for once malfunctioned up front which was in start contrast to the Kildare county final when they played with 13 men and took pretty much every chance they had and in the semi where they blitzed a fancied more talented Athy team. Corofin were extremely physical didn't give them anything easy though which is the difference I suppose.
I can't see them defending the Kildare championship this year either.

We say that every year about Moorefield but yet they keep coming back. The scandalous change to the championship structure will suit them as well. On the red card when it's clear and obvious in camera as this is Farragher should not only have his red card rescinded Healy should get a ban. Sick of theatrics in all sports at all levels.

I don't think the extra games will suit them at all. The likes of Celbridge, JTB and Athy might benefit as it will allow the county players to gel a bit better while Sarsfields will probably be a lot hungrier this year and there is little between them and Moorefield. Naas should be there abouts too while Clane and Carbury have good young players coming through so the championship is more competitive than 90% of other counties. I'd rather have a competitive championship over having one dominant club.

Agreed on Liam Healy but it happens in almost every game that players go down holding there face without contact being made, a Corofin player did the same a few minutes after. Retrospective bans for doing it in televised games is the way to go.

A lad playing for his college and his club is greedy! Now Iíve heard it all.

Playing one game after the other is stupid and reckless.

Kieran Molloy got a Garda escort to the game after Corofin match. He may feature yet for NUIG. Liam Silke won't. He picked up a finger injury.
He's on now. Player welfare my arse.

If the players have no interest in their own welfare they can't have any complaints.
They just played an All-Ireland club semi-final.
No one would hold it against them if they left it at that.
If they decide they want to be involved in another game that's up to them.
The fixture schedule is the main problem, players will play no matter what. How hard would it be to avoid matches clashing.

When you have some lads playing two different sports for multiple teams at various stages during the year, it can be pretty hard.
I just don't believe fixtures should be scheduled in such a way that accommodates these players.

Agreed, the GAA can't be pandering to those who are too greedy/stupid in the amount of teams and competitions they choose to play in.

His form has definitely regressed over the last 2 or 3 years, whether injuries or burnout could be blamed I'm not sure but he hasn't hit the heights of his 2013/14 performances. You would think he should be coming into his prime now but it is not the case and with his crankiness and ill discipline becoming more of an issue which will be picked upon.
