But seriously, flags bigger than A4 are banned? that's absolutely ludicrous. What sort of bolloxes are these people? I understood the security implications of large rucksacks etc, but what the heck is the rationale for banning flags? That's pathetic.

You can write political slogans on a something bigger than an A4.
While this is common it can often be fobed off at soccer games but Croke park and Hill 16 has a wider impact.
This is the motivation behind the ban.

The problem with Dublin on Hill 16 is that they organised themselves.

Are political slogans a problem in GAA circles? I haven't seen any? The big flag ban is mental itself, but banning ALL flags larger than A4 is just ludicrous. Sure the flags in the crowd add to the colour and excitement that they are always blathering on about in Croker.

How many times have you been trapped behind a jackass with a big flag? Not fun.

Ah stop. Are umbrellas banned too? They're bigger than A4 and a damn sight more annoying than a flag that only gets waved when there's a score or something anyway.

Umbrellas should be banned at matches, tbh. People don't pay money in to look at an umbrella for 70 minutes.

call your village, they're missing their idiot

You have some real issues. I'm sorry for you.

Well done Dublin supporters.  The bureaucrats are slowly taking away all the fun out of supporting your team.  I support your move 100%.

Don't worry the gaa will mind the 1 million euros not spent in the shops  - using 50,000 dubs at an average of 20 euros.

Some rules make sense and some don't and this one doesn't.  Great to see supporters making a stand.

Each Dub eating an average of 4 burgers ??

The vast majority won't give a shit .   either we accept the full H&S package or we don't .

It isn't a big deal .

I can understand the bitterness about the dubs winning All Ireland's but this is nothing to do with that. H&S gone mad. I would have thought this is an issue all GAA fans could support, but because it's Dublin the bitterness/jealously comes out and people automatically assume dubs are complaining so it must be a good rule

It's gone mad until some poor f˙cker dies or is injured. Insurance premiums, lad.
How exactly can a flag kill someone? Please share with us in your infinite wisdom how passing this flag overhead (before the game starts) is life threatening and will increase insurance risk/premiums

If you're this upset over something as pointless as a big flag (the press release was full on hilarity btw) then maybe you might have finally context for how annoyed the other 31 counties are at the many actual advantage Dublin enjoys over ever else.

Good man larryin. You have them hopping up and down like mad. On a more football related note what's the genuine feeling in Roscommon? Is there a bullish mood brewing thinking that the team will give Mayo the knockout blow; or do you think that there's still a possibility that Mayo might do the business once again, despite the tired legs and high mileage?
Are you asking them are they feeling bullish or sheepish?
;D ;D
Yeah, we'll shear them hoors alright.
If any of them pesky Rossies are entertaining grand notions they should remember that they were feeling the same way about Galway in last year's Connacht Final and look what happened to them?

Mayo by at least five!
Roscommon drew with Galway in that game using a very defensive approach
whats your point?
They did indeed and some of them here got a bit uppity as a result of that draw. Galway had their sums done for the replay but the usual suspects (here) were very cocky for the replay and look where it landed them.
don't know about that
they changed their approach for the replay and were cut open
think they had a lot of injuries too

Based on this year, we didn't have enough injuries was what the real problem was.

If only the ref could have blown up then :'(
Jases the throwin the ball was something else!!
One of the best teams that I've seen that didn't win an All Ireland . Ye were in hard luck that day.

And there came a moment when their best no longer was good enough too, Lar..

All Ireland semi finals

Kerry v Roscommon
Meath v Tyrone

Venues still up in the air for these semi finals, Kerry i hear are pushing hard to get their semi final played in Munster.

Incorrect. Kerry pushing to play an All-Ireland semi-final on a Wednesday evening just to suit their minor team that has an overlap of maybe two or three players with the U17 side. We've rightly objected to that nonsense, hence the fact the venues and dates have not been announced.

On the evidence of this year, Galway's accounting isn't too great.

I can't see them beating Mayo because of the Croke Park factor.
Mayo play well at Headquarters. They always have since Horan arrived on the scene and even when beaten, they fought to the very end. Croke Park holds no fear for them and they always rise to the occasion while the sheepophiles know sweet feck all about what lies ahead.
Mayo by at least five!

Most of this team have played at Croker multiple times at underage, league finals and semi finals, and the league itself. Some of them even won AI senior titles there and did what terrifies Mayo lads and walked up the Hogan Stand, Lar. I think people overstate what is a bit of grass means to the end result. Any footballer would their boots is going to relish playing at Croker.
Played multiple. i.e. a few, times and generally lost, often getting a hosing in the process

Our record at senior in Croker over the last three or four years is 2-2. But don't let facts get in the way of your self-loathing attack on your own county.
That's an excellent sample size Syf, quite the researcher you are. What happened against Kerry and Dublin again? Absolute hosings!
I do think the pitch will suit your style of play though but it is a second home to our lads, 3 of which climbed the Hogan stand to collect a minor all-Ireland in 2013.

On another topic, is there going to be a moments applause for David Gavin at the match? Would be nice for both sides to join together for that.

Despite the above, playing in Croke Park is a definite plus to Mayo. The pitch plays differently to others and familiarity with the effect of the stands on the wind etc only comes with experience. If it were not so we wouldnt see it as such an advantage to the Dubs.

It's an advantage to Dublin because they have 50k jackeens hounding the ref for every game, it's their home feckin ground.

Second biggest pitch in Ireland after Croke Park?

Dr Hyde Park..

Pitch with the most difficult wind?

Whats Syf smoking!!

Is this why Jackson couldn't travel to the US for the New Zealand and USA tests?

One could hope. It hold be ironic that his pending charges prevented him gonig to America but it wasn't enough for Joe to drop it from the squad. Whatever about Ulster, Joe could easily have taken the high road on this one because Jackson is expendable at the best of times.

It's so sad that the response here is a predictable defense of someone charged with rape. The Ched Evans thread was lamentable enough. Do you think anyone here doesn't have an opinion on this, guilt or innonce? Pretending you don't and you're whiter than white fools no one, least of all me. And libel, get off your play horses.

As both Jackson and Olding have already shown with BBC they are more than ready to take action to protect their reputations and hopefully they will take on the likes of you who is impugning their characters with absolutely no knowledge of the crime of which they are accused.

Check the time stamps on the link I posted. Cheers.
