Kerry will eventually, Mayo maybe might get one more chance, everyone else have no hope.

Not much talk on here today . . . I thought yesterdays game was far and away a better match than the Hurling Final!

I agree that the football was a better game but the Hurling didn't leave the majority of the GAA public depressed and empty at the result of it.

McCarthy MOTM. More than justified.

Sporting a nice shiner too.

Yep that's right. A midfielder who got so cleaned out on his own kickouts that his keeper never went long the entire second half.

McCarthy was good today. But if kicking two points is what it takes to win this award, then measure everyone who does it equally.

McCarthy was wing back for most of the first half, from when McCaffrey went off.

He was completely anonymous in the first half so it wasn't clear where he ws playing. At times it looked like he was marking AOS but AOS dropped deep and was very influential. They were 2 fantastic points he kicked though.

How have the Sunday game not mentioned the pages eye gouging incident before half time. Surely a straight red.

Eye gouge? O'Gara's have was over his mouth, not his eyes.

It still looks a gouge to me, even if sligthly below the eye it is still a red for me, no need to have his hand anywhere near boyles face. Mayo should have kicked up a bigger fuss, they are usually good at highlighting these things.

He will miss out on u20s if he plays for the seniors.

the focus will probably be on vaughan as the pivitol moment but I thought mccaffrey's injury was big. He had started really well and Dublin seemed a bit clueless for 10 or 15 mins after he went off. It really upset their game plan

Replacing him with Flynn didn't work well and they lost their shape, Eric Lowndes would have been a more like for like replacement but I'm not sure if he was even on the bench.

I wondered about taking mcloughlin and moran off too. were they just tired or injured ?

Moran looked wrecked, hit a tired looking wide a couple of minutes before going off. Taking McLoughlin off looked a bad decision, he was still looking fresh and playing brilliantly.

I won't argue on the soft frees issue, Jason Doherty got one where he fell over.
I'm still not sure on the AOS one on McCarthy, there was no replay shown and it was a case of McCarthy running over him when he was on the ground. Hard to see from a distance whether he grabbed hold of his leg like Small last year though.

At leat you have a competitive provincial championship to look forward to most years, in Leinster there is no point to intercounty football after the league is over, pretty much the same case for the Munster teams lately too with Kerry's dominance.

AOS lucky he avoided a black card.

this was a huge call - happened right in front of me and he 100% should have got a black

You standing in the middle of the field? It was nowhere near as big a call as the gouge from O'Gara going unpunished.

The outlook is bleak for everyone apart from Dublin and Kerry. Mayo currently have the greatest team never to win an AI and with the bad luck, referees and self harm they have had to face in the last two years they are surely going to fade away.
Tyrone are probably the only Ulster team likely to be competitive in the next while but with Harte there for another 3 years I can't see them getting close to sam. They remain one of the benchmarks when it comes to fundraising and organisation but they are still a long way away from the financial muscle of Dublin and Kerry.

Was the gouge mentioned? Crucial moment in the game for me.

RTE missed out on not getting Tommy Walsh, a far better Kilkenny pundit than Shefflin.

Wasn't O'Rourke one of the biggest cheerleaders for making Dublin better than everyone else back in the early 00's. I definitely remember his guff about how the GAA needs a strong Dublin (not that they were ever weak), that has turned out well for Leinster football anyway.
