Game over by half time. Dr Crokes all over the shop in defence and more goals are there for Corofin if they want them 2nd half. Red card was the correct call real stupid from the Crokes defender.

Look likes Monaghan will be the first team in Division 1 to stay up on 4 points since Armagh in 2011. If Dublin carry their league form into the championship they won't win the All Ireland however that is a big if.

Good win for Armagh yesterday and for once good discipline was displayed. The two draws in games Armagh should have won will cost promotion by the looks of it.

Looks like the cnut posted it live online as he did the mass shooting.

I don't think Tyrone have enough top quality forwards to win Sam
I'd also question if Tyrone have enough top quality defenders to win Sam. We all know how good Dublin are however wasn't the score they got against Tyrone last September the highest they have scored in All Ireland final since 1977?

Probably the easiest ever win for Ireland against France in the six/five nations.

Every public image of Jackson will be removed.
Some task to achieve that...

VAR isnít working
If you study the decision from last night
The defender was actually trying to pull his arm in towards his body and connected with the ball, if he keeps his arm up then no foul. Itís crazy
i think trying to judge if shot was on target should also be brought into the argument
Does that matter? have seen plenty of penalties given for hand ball from crosses into the box.

You'll see plenty more  as / the new ruling discussed last night. Rio Ferdinand made the point of arms being being used to balance yourself. Is it open season for boys just to ping balls off defenders arms... 'nailed on penalty' as described in another thread. Will the game be too stop start? Most games are hard enough to watch these days

On a bit of a side note I always wondered about guys that turn side ways/turn their backs in front of a shot. Brave defenders face it front ways with hands behind their backs.

The hands behind the back is a very new thing, especially among the Chelsea defenders. It'll have to be done by all and sundry now. Means your balance isnt what it should be and will be much tougher to react to an attacker turning you on the inside or outside

Italian defenders have been doing that for years.  One thing the VAR doesn't stop is the bar stool debates of was or wasn't it a correct decision.

Plenty of egg on Ramos' face right now.
3-0 now to Ajax. Real Madrid have completely lost their aura since Ronaldo and Zidane left.

What is it with all these famous music artists. Die very young.
Suicide in Flint's case.

Was that confirmed?

Seems to be yeah. Saw them at witness in 2002.

As was the recent deaths of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington so sad. RIP

A shot clock would ruin Dublin's keep ball tactics when in front. Congress unlikely to bring anything in that would upset Dublin either.
