Kerry 2015  and Mayo 2016 stand out because both games were there for the wining but we kicked them away.

Trailer you muppets read what I said. I said it should be a black not that it was a black.

Clotheslining someone to stop a scoring chance is just as cynical as the things already in the list for a black, it can be more dangerous and as such should be added to the black card list.

Why can people not read what was said before making stupid posts arguing against what wasn't said??

Ah jesus surely there's a hundred other threads that Dublin's finances or the state of Leinster hurling.

Agreed. Back to the match. Any bunting up around the county yet?

The Tinnies in Strabane are getting dressed up this weekend I think.

Some people will try to build a case for us to be in with a chance, most will say we'll get whipped. The reality is they haven't a clue.

I personally don't think there will be a huge amount in it. We were beat by 12 last year and Dublin were worth a big win because we were just awful. I simply refuse to believe Tyrone will be that bad again and even that 12 point win should have been 9 had Harte scored the pen. Only a goal that was just as lucky as the goal we scored against Monaghan split the teams this year in Omagh. People will say Dublin didn't get out of 3rd gear for that game, but I don't know about that, that's just how Dublin play the game all the time.

Last year we had played 4 games before meeting Dublin and walked everyone of them. We weren't battle hardened like you need to be, like Mayo were last year by the final. In the 4 games last year here's our top scorers, a lot has changed in 12 months.

Sean Cavanagh.....0-14 (0-11 frees)
Peter Harte........... .1-8 (1-0 pen, 0-2 frees, 0-1í45í)
David Mulgrew.....2-4

Cheers for sharing. Listened to the start of it there and will listen to the end of it.

I was rarely in Omagh but 24 hours exactly before we were on that street coming back from Gortatole and the bus stopped to let us run to the shops. Really scary. My Cousin and his young son were injured, the son with serious lifelong injuries. Scary scary stuff. Every time you see the collage picture of all the people who died that day it brings the futility of it home, almost all woman and children.

He's right though. It's utter shite.

How is it utter shite? Lets break down what I actually said for those at a remedial level such as yourself.

A tackle around the neck should be a black imo.

This is my opinion, I say it right there at the end. How someone's opinion on a matter can be utter shite I don't know.

It's just as cynical,

A man running past you through for a score, you trip him or drag him to the ground and it's a black. If you clothesline him it's just as cynical a way to stop a man.

it's more dangerous

Only a moron would argue that a tackle round the neck in the manner we're seeing is less dangerous than a foot trip or being dragged down by the waist.

and players are doing it now intentionally to avoid a black.

Maybe I should have put "imo" i here but it's obviously just my opinion. I've watched football all my life and played a bit too. I don't ever remember a time when there was 3/4 clothesline type tackles in every game like we see now before the black came in. It would seem that players now can't drag a man down for fear of getting a black and the next easiest way to stop them and only get a yellow is to tackle high.

It's more likely he'd start Morgan at full forward.

Way to debunk a post.  ::) ::)

Colm does plenty wrong but tackling around the neck often is something I'd be surprised to hear him accused of. Tyrone do it a lot and I hate it.

Watching the live coverage back here and Joe Brolly is a f**king weirdo. Did anyone notice him stroking TomŠs OíSeís leg early in the coverage with a dirty grin on his face. Tomas looked liked he wanted to chin him.

Tomas and yourself mustnít be too secure in your sexuality so.

If he stroked Rachel Wyse like that would it be OK also??

She'd definitely chin him after the smart comments he made about her when Sky first got the gig.

The only rules changes I would possibly advocate now are...

1) Remove the black card. It's a farce, and has only legitimized cynical play. Replace this with a 21 yard free and a 10 minute sin bin. I'd include cynical and dangerous play in this because the tackles around the neck are going to hurt someone badly if they're not stamped out.

2) Introduce a timing system ala rugby/ladies football where the clock is actually stopped for proper stoppages and if needs be 20 seconds can be added on for each sub. Once the 70 is up you hear a hooter and the next time the ball goes dead (unless for a free/pen) it's game over.

3) This is the controversial one. If you want teams to kick the ball in you have to reward it. At the moment it's too risky and more often than not you just lose possession. I like the idea of if you kick the ball from outside the 45 to inside the 21 then you can take a mark. That mightn't be popular but I think the mark was a huge success so far and didn't disrupt the game like I thought it would. The kick would have to be taken quickly by the guy who caught it or if he wanted he can just play on.

The problem I can see with the third option is that it may get defences deeper as they get in position to win the ball that will more often than not get broken. Maybe combine the mark you advocate with Bennycake's idea of 2 points for a point outside 45. Defences would have more things to cover and hopefully more space would be created.

Could defenses be much deeper than a lot of them are already? Bring back the 6 foot 6 full forward I say and lump the f**king thing into him.

Can the Dubs stop Tyrone???

Exactly. A big 3 weeks for Jim Gavin to come up with a plan to counter the free scoring Tyrone.
