Hope Seán Kelly gets his suspension over-turned and is available for the semi-final.

How he was sent off and Comer wasn’t is shocking.

As a Derry man I’d like to see Kelly get off also. He doesn’t look a dirty player and it didn’t look like he did much. Hopefully both teams at full strength and let the best team win.

Ref got it right. Reckless, dangerous challenge.

Looked very harsh. Need to see it again.

I think it's a great competition. Will be interesting to see how the most prominent teams do in the League next year.
And Westmeath should put it up to Cavan.

Totally agree with it being a great competition. I would tweak it slightly though to have some kind of back door or group system to ensure teams don't end up with just one game. It has worked out brilliantly for Westmeath and Cavan but it probably wasn't that worthwhile for teams knocked out in round 1. It should be a really good final.

Joe Bidens America has Covid vaccines for 6 months olds  (who don’t need it ) but no baby formula.
Sums up the worst administration of all time .
Worse than the last one?
how are things globally and internally? make up your own mind.

Biden has don quite a good job considering the hand he was dealt and the divided state of the country caused by the deliberate stoking of divisiveness by his predecessor.

This could be the pick of the quarter finals. Two really attacking teams going at it in the wide open spaces of Croke park. Hopefully both teams lack of experience in croke park doesn’t lead to too many nerves and they settle down quickly. This will definitely be tight but both teams will see it as a great chance to progress. Hopefully Derry can get over the line by a point or 2.

It’s also interesting that they’ve gone with all the division 2 teams on the Saturday and all the division 1 teams on the Sunday.

Which one of the two corner forwards is from south derry marty? :-)

Ok 2...out of 30 - minor and senior.

Actually, probably V Galway, there'll be 29.

Great young talent in mid-field from Galway - born and bred in south Derry I hear.

from 2 north derry men to 29? bold prediction

I think i'll be backing clare if that's the case 8)

Ryan McNicholl did the cruciate or he would’ve been there as captain. The 2 corner forwards are north Derry also. Dungiven will certainly produce a number of minors in the next few years, they’ve some decent teams coming through.

For years losing finalists do not do well with a very quick turn around

That’s why they should have been drawn against each other. It would’ve been fairer as they’d all have been coming off a defeat. The 4 round 1 qualifier winners could’ve been drawn against each other, they’d all have been coming off a win.

Who’s that panelist on RTE with O’Rourke and Cavanagh?  A complete one trick pony. Hopeless

She's hard to listen to, RTE must have a gender quota in play .  Wouldn't be a fan of the two bucks alongside either.

They have such terrible punditry

Was thinking the same thing myself. Additionaly Sean Cavanagh comes across a bit smug for my liking.
He's always getting sly digs in Cavanagh

He’s a dismal pundit. Has anyone here ever laughed at one of his attempted jokes. He tries them all the time too and he just isn’t funny. Pathetic analysis from him also, he never adds anything insightful.

All the provincial losing finalists beaten in the qualifiers. I had a strong feeling that might happen and it’s why I think the qualifiers need a tweak. The four first round qualifier winners should be drawn against each other to produce 2 quarter finalists. The 4 provincial final losers should be drawn against each other to also produce 2 quarter finalists. Those results over the weekend show the difference in coming into a game off the back of a win compared to a defeat.

Enjoyable enough game but doesn’t have the same quality of the ulster final. Looks like it’s all over. Donegal look gone.

People need to get over the fact that gaelic football, on the whole,  isn't an attractive sport. But it's our sport.

The game has evolved into something like soccer or basketball. That probably comes from innovative coaches taking ideas from other sports. There are still many great and enjoyable games at all levels including county and club. If you watch soccer regularly you’d know that a majority of games there are really boring and practically unwatchable. Gaelic football has always had its share of poor games like other sports and always will. The game at the moment requires incredible fitness but also incredible skill levels. All players are comfortable on the ball in the top teams, otherwise opponents would target those players to get turnovers.

9% inflation for may , worst in 40 years
gasoline price at an all time high as is crime and meanwhile the government are wasting time and money on an “insurrection” that had no weapons and one protester was shot .
This made for tv show won’t save their asses in November.

Lol, we should all forget and forgive an attempted coup. Hopefully justice will be done and Trump will will go down for a long time.

It’s good to have a solid match-up this weekend, but I don’t think the big-guns of Kerry, Derry or Dublin will be losing much sleep.

lol, love it.

One of the most pleasing things is that in the 3 matches so far it has been different players who have stepped up the plate as leaders on the different days, shows that there is real depth in the team, though maybe not so much on the bench [compared to some other counties, and exacerbated by some players stepping away] after the first couple or three subs.

And on that note thought it was very tough on the 2 young lads coming on and then being taken off again.

Not tough at all. They got to play a significant part in a historic victory. What an experience for them at the start of their careers. You’re correct in highlighting the fact that different players are stepping up in each game which is great to see.
