Fair play to Westmeath hopefully they hammer the biffos. Maughan  & that ridiculous chant are enough to put me off my soup.

missed that, what is that about

Lets hope the GAA appoint referees that allow teams to play.
The contrast two weeks ago was crazy
Galway V Kilkenny, free ridden pathetic spectacle
Limerick V Clare one of best games in a decade.
btw kudos to all four teams today for providing four hours os great entertainment.

So who avoids who, Only Galway have played Mayo, Kerry v Cork previous

If that was one of the criteria, then how were Armagh able to be drawn against Donegal, just like Mayo played and lost to Galway, but according to Joanne Cantwell Mayo cannot meet Galway again.
it really feels like they are making it up as they go along, or maybe Joanne Cantwell was incorrect with her information.

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.

Good to see Jim mcguinness has cheered up a bit and not as boring as last time I saw him , actually enjoyed his analysis today .

He, Peter Canavan and the host, don't know her name are so much better than RTE's cliche fest, it is immeasurable.

When you start Stephen Coen at #6 and Jason Doherty at #11
Says something about Mayo management

I’m never sure how Conor Loftus keeps reappearing for Mayo. He has never played better than a 3/10 in a championship match.

Bigger worry for Mayo today though is that the reliables like DOC, Durcan, COC and Ruane, are all a little off the pace.

A few of those fairly woke up the last quarter.

Agreed but you have to really wonder how James Horan can completely fu*k up the selection of the Mayo team once again. As I posted earlier, it was 50 mins before we got our best 15 on the field.

It looks like it has Taken James Horan almost 50 minutes to get Mayo’s best 15 on the field

Some of the decisions coming out of croke Park this year are ridiculous.  Every other week there seems to be something.
Shameful, the buck should stop with Tom Ryan and the new President McCarthy who seem no addition. Then the faceless anonymous committees that refuse to make public their justifications for decisions or even their names.

It's more of a dictatorship ran by accountants than a democracy. The likes of today an empty Croke Park is all these accountants will understand.

So FFin stupid

I'm hearing through the grapevine that HQ want the quarter-final draw to be the same outline as the semi-final draw, that is, Ulster v Connacht and Leinster v Munster, with winners of one province playing the beaten finalist in the other (same as the minor draw).

Meaning the draw is:

Derry v Roscommon or Clare, unless Monaghan or Tyrone beat Roscommon

Galway v Donegal or Armagh, unless Mayo beat Donegal

Dublin v Limerick or Cork , unless Meath beat Limerick

Kerry v Kildare or Mayo , unless Cork beat Kildare.


What happens if one or more of the "unless" things happens is anyone's guess at this stage - will see how it looks after this weekends games and the draw, I suppose.


Not sure if all that makes sense, but that's what I heard and want to get it out there before any conspiracy theories start.


Edit: I think I have the "unless" parts correct on avoiding repeat fixtures...remember beaten provincial finalist can't meet each other, so Donegal can't meet Roscommon so Donegal v Derry cannot recur, same way Galway and Roscommon cannot recur.  Edit 2: Likewise, Kildare can't meet Limerick.


Or am I getting my explanation all wrong?


Edit 3 to reflect June 4 results: Monaghan and Meath out.
Edit 4: Tyrone out
Edit 5:  Getting clearer now...


Meaning the draw is:

Derry v Roscommon or Clare

Galway v Donegal or Armagh

Dublin v Limerick or Cork

Kerry v Kildare or Mayo

Although latest story is they forgot to put this procedure in the overall plan for 2022, so it's looking like an open draw with no repeat pairings if possible.
Kerry, Dublin and Mayo all on one side of the draw? I really fancy our chances of getting to a final if we can get over Donegal.

Enough of that talk ... Galway, Derry well capable of taking out anyone on their day as well.  Laser focus on this Sunday and nothing else.
Lol a man can dream! Sunday is massive

Quoting Ciaran whelan on RTE on Mayo "struggling to break down defensive systems they are likely to come up against on that side of the draw."

Is it definitive that Q/final draw is pre ordained, or is that just rumor.
if this is the case, and winners of ;
Mayo V Kildare will play Kerry
Cork V Limerick play Dublin
 
Why would Mayo or Kildare show up in significant numbers to their game, in the knowledge that the winners of that will play Kerry and will be huge underdogs.
why would Cork v Limerick attract more than 2k, knowing that winners will definitely play Dublin and most likely get clobbered.
Surely the GAA cannot be that stupid.
