A tackle around the neck should be a black imo. It's just as cynical, it's more dangerous and players are doing it now intentionally to avoid a black.

I don't think I've ever heard such shite in my life

Self service booth doesn't give change does it? Is it not more likely people throwing and missing the bucket?

The ref gave as many poor decisions against Tyrone as he did Monaghan
The Monaghan big decision came at the end and it was never a free as Hughes was all over him. So he made the right call on that one. As for extra time, there was very little injuries in the game. He played the right amount as the subs made as shown on the Sunday Game last night. As well as that he played an extra 40 seconds over the 3 minutes.
Overall the ref was poor for both teams and itís sour grapes from Monaghan.

The 'monaghan big decision' came before that when he gave a nothing free against mcmanus (who he seems to dislike) when it would have resulted in an 3 to 1 situation for a goal. Instead Tyrone went up the field and got a point.

Which does more harm for Gaelic football.......

Dublin winning their 4th of 8 in a row or Tyrone winning one this year........


But Tyrone gives hope to a lot of moderate footballers out there... jesus Colm Cavanagh  ....

Most of the 50/50s seemed to go Tyrones way (and one or two that weren't even 50/50 - how did mcmanus not get a free for being slapped in the face, which the ref had to see because he stopped play for treatment!).
Was that in the 1st half? He did get a free which was taken by someone else. It was strangely kicked backwards then given to the free taker who was now in a more difficult position and he kicked it over. Wasnít much of a free either.

He kicked it back because a free wasn't awarded for the slap. Monaghan were in possession so retained it, but he couldn't shoot directly. it was an incredible decision, and in keeping how he was all day.

That generally isn't an issue. The ball was moving which I'd say was a bigger one

 ;D You joker. If he's average I'd like to see who you think is good!

Perhaps in isolation certain incidents could be argued but when put together it did seem as though monaghan were hard done by. In a 1 pt game every one of these incidents are important.

Fair play to Tyrone though, hopefully we can look forward to a great final - Dubs are there for the taking

From the Super 8 to now the Fantastic 4 its been labelled by some. With extra revenue so important maybe in time a group stage will be introduced for the last 4?

On a scale of one to ten i'd wonder how confident Dublin supporters are to winning four in row All Ireland titles. In their way is Galway who have reached their first All Ireland semi final since 2001, Monaghan who have reached their first semi final since 1988 and Tyrone who they beat by 12 point in their last championship meeting in Croke park.


Why ignore the fact they have played Tyrone in this years championship and it was closer?

They haven't

If you pass any remarks on anything on Joe.ie, especially anything by that eejit, you've got bigger issues than the name of your county being besmirched

I'm 40 in November. Life can be very stressful at times but I wouldn't say I'm having a mid life crisis or anything yet. Marriage is good,work is good, don't have many regrets at all apart from wishing I had lived in a different country for 5 or 6 years, that would have been nice. Spent a year drinking and riding in Australia but that doesn't really count.
How do you know you're having a midlife crisis anyway?

On marriage,It is sad people break-up after a couple of years. The wife's brother and his (ex)wife only lasted 7 months.
I think alot of couples get caught up in the actual wedding itself. Sure some are planning it for a couple of years and it takes over their life. Then it's all over and reality hits home.
It's one thing being boyfriend and girlfriend but being married is a whole different kettle of fish.
I tell the wife everyday how lucky she is to have me, we're married 8 years so I like to think it's working.

What changes though?  Most couples are generally living together anyway and some already have kids.  I agree facebook and the like doesn't help, 'oh look, their life/marriage seems perfect and far better than ours, so there must be something wrong'.  Think it dawns on some people that they were never actually in love with the OH in the first place.

Nothing changes

Kerry goal was illegitimate, basically:
Paul Earley (@earleyconsult):

Kerry goal came from referee decision to penalise Colin Walsh when he fisted the ball away on the ground after falling.  'Rule 1.2 Any player who falls or is knocked to the ground while in possession of the ball may fist or palm the ball away on the ground and may score'



We really need refs that know, and who can faithfully implement, the fecking rules; it has been a disastrous weekend for ineptitude in the middle, seriously.

I've seen this all over the place and its rubbish. Of course Deegan knows that rule, and he was completely right to give the free - Walshe wasn't in possession of the ball when he went down, it was loose.

In the event if there being likely to be a close vote I doubt very much sfís support would be welcomed by either side
