It was the weirdest bit of punditry until the commentator issued this utterance in the second half ‘ and Rafferty was fouled which was fortunate as he’d dropped the ball’ Any chance that it was the foul that actually made him drop the ball!!
Careful now

I mean,come on a 12  year old could explain the sweeper

Yet you see players up and down the country making the mistakes pointed out in that clip. The problem is that plenty of people (and coaches of teams) think that the sweeper is just bringing a man back and yes a 12 year could explain that, but the key thing is what he does when he's back there. I would doubt if too many 12 year olds could explain it better than Peter and Jim did in that clip.
That was never a square ball!!

Sweeper is an absolute nightmare of a position to play - it's very much a dammed if you do dammed if you don't in terms of when to come and and when to go.

Even in those clips the presence of the sweeper around the box meant that the odds of Galway putting a ball in around the box was way lower than if there was no sweeper there which reduced the chances of Galway getting a goal from those possessions significantly. I would say that the main aim of a sweeper is to reduce goal chances.

However it looks very bad for a sweeper when a forward strolls through the middle and pops over a point from that area in-between where a full-back and a centre-back would traditionally go.

So lads, should we have penalties?

Ah the rules are the rules Des and you have to play to them.


WTF.

Clearly the fukking question was "should penalties be part of the rules".

Nobody worried about it when Clare and Limerick had to go to penalties

Probably because the winner had to play Kerry and the loser wasn't out of the championship.

Nobody is worried about any games in Munster to be honest.

Winner on the day was agreed by all CB's when the championships were condensed. Penalties as good as anything irrespective of the bullshit peddled by Cavanagh unless Armagh were happy to play Galway in Portlaois or Thurles next weekend with the expectation the winners would be playing the following weekend.

We’d play them on the moon tomorrow rather than go out like that.

The Sunday Game analysts all would prefer a replay as they make money from a replay.

How about next score wins?
Or first have 10 min more of regular ET.
If the 'next score win' becomes too negative, could remove a couple of players from both sides every few min.

I remember an Armagh and Tyrone u20 match being decided by extra extra time a few years ago- 5 mins each way after it finished level.

Again cruel way to lose as most lads bound to be out on their feet after extra time already.
