As the Chinese leader in the 1980's said when asked about the French Revolution 'it's much too early to say if it's been a success'

Wooly is great because he can be so abrasive.

Kernan started talking today about how Armagh got "dragged into" a melee. Parkinson immediately and sternly called him out on it and let him know Armagh started the row. He also called out Joyce on his comments about the penalties and McGeeney for his messing in the press conference.

I think Colm's ability to cut to the chase and call out bullshit where he sees it sets him apart from the rest. It can go too far at times and his personal twitter account can make for grim reading but as long as he sticks to Gaa, he's more entertaining than anyone else out there.

FS Woolly calling out the bullshit....sure he is the biggest bullshitter of them all.

Someone pushes me I push back.... ok, I don't then ask for all mine teammates to get into a cartoon style dust up in front of 100,000's of people watch at the pitch on tv and in a quarter final game at the home of GAA..

Agreeing that its ok to push back is the first problem, allowing the ref to do his job is a lot easier when its one man instigating it, yellow or red depending on the incident.

The ref has one chance after discussion with other officials to make a call, if he did it by the book, you'd have 8 a side if you are lucky, maybe that needs to happen
The book needs to change then if it says there were any red card offences in that melee bar the obvious one ffs.

first two lads engage in a bit of pushing, the ref can deal with, issue cards appropriately, the others that bomb in are the issue and it's bad enough if it's actual players on the field of play, but when subs and even injured panel members get involved irrespective of their actions then they need made examples of.

How many 'bad' incidents were there before that final whistle?  was there a few melee's?  Did the ref dish out any cards during the game? Or did he just let them at it?

Here's the problem, football is not a contact sport unless there is a fair shoulder to shoulder, that's it, no other bodily contact is allowed, players are only allowed to tackle the ball not the man, if we ref'd per rule book and not use common sense then the game would be sanitised and unpopular (thats my opinion)

A manger was giving off last night in a game I was at saying ffs its a contact sport, which I replied its not bar a shoulder, read the rules

You come out with shite like that and then wonder why people have no respect for referees?

Met a woman on POF one time who was using her daughter's pic as her profile.  The Da must have been a good looking fella is all I'm saying.

Didn't much like Wooly as a player and even less now as a pundit.

I've played championship 3 times in a week at one stage in the past.  Unforgettable sequence of games and would have loved to have had the opportunity to do that every season. As would every other person involved when we chat about it.

Or maybe the adverse effect the traumatic experience of playing so many high intensity games has had on the oul mental health has distorted our reality

Any player would give their left nut to get playing 3 massive games in Croke Park 3 weeks in a row. Anybody that says different must be smoking ganga or otherwise off their f45860g rocker.

Galway! Our bogey team! Again!

Ah well, I'm sure our lads will be well prepared and hope we wont make mistakes along the line like we did the last 2 semis against them that contributed to those defeats, but I'm not too confident about this one. Conceding the 4 goals against them last time out must be a major worry coming in to this game. Galway have a style of football that isn't in the slightest bit fazed by our 'blanket'.

Really looking forward to it though, m'sure it will a corker of a game, Galway supporters always sound people so there will be a great atmosphere at it.

S

We'll agree to disagree, in the world of finance the GAA will listen to the likes of Joyce and the public opinion on using penalties, with pressure being applied from sponsors and media. We seen the reality of the plan yesterday and I expect some head scratching in Croke Park this morning. There would have to be compromise and the Dublin Meath saga could never happen again but after such a high profile game yesterday the GAA will use it to make a slight change again imo.

The world of finance? The GAA are turning down lucrative replays here. For once, we can't throw the finance thing at them

😂.. no we can't to be fair but is it sustainable? My opinion like many is more about fairness on the players but when we think about it, the GAA are potentially throwing away over Ä1million, imagine a semi final goes the same way as yesterday. Media and sponsors would of loved another Armagh v Galway game in a packed stadium. I think decide on the day in the first match is crazy and when common sense takes over the authorities will all agree.

But we can't have it both ways, especially in these times. Are we expecting players and supporters of one of teh teams go out to Croke Park 3 weekends in a row now? We've known about this all year. A big game would always have these discussions, but we'll get used to it and move on
Happily. Cut ticket prices for a replay though.

Well of course you'd say that this morning. But it's not just price (and they used to cut replay prices alright). Just next weekend was meant to be off for players, and now we have some saying 3 weeks in a row is no issue, with the final 2 weeks after. Potentially 4 games in 5 weeks? Nah way...

Ah ffs catch yourself on, players would play a game every night of the week to get to an AI semi-final.

Of course they would. That's literally my point, but it wouldn't be fair on them. But it's not up to the GAA to flog them like that, they have to think on that stuff now. There's a reason we don't leave these decisions to the players. The right call was made with penalties seeing as we have a split season.
Ah in fairness at that level those lads could play 2 days in a row. Molloy from Galway played twice in one day for NUIG and Corofin Iím nearly sure once as well. A week is plenty of time to recover to be honest. I know itís a different level but Iíve seen club teams in Armagh play Sunday Wednesday Friday Sunday.

And we see players like Clifford being bollixed as he was made play 2 games in one day when the Sigerson was on. He's only now coming back from injuries. No sports scientist on the planet would allow 2 high intensity games in 2 days. They're amateurs, they need recovery. What is to be gained from flogging them?

That's is an entirely different matter as it was for 2 different teams which is fair enough.

You however are arguing about players having to play 3 weekends in a row as if that is some big deal. 

As Armagh18 just said to another poster 'tell me you never kicked a ball without telling me you never kicked a ball'.

if Derry were playing either of Meath or Roscommon they wouldn't be clear favourites to beat them and Clare have defeated both of them, this will be a very tough game with very little in it.

The government should abolish fuel excise duty, would solve their inflation problem overnight.
