I can't believe they didn't discuss Murphy black card.

Enjoying the debate and they cut to camogie.
Never a black card but not worthy of discussion since Donegal were already getting tanked and it made no difference.

The sunday game has been finished as a show of any great importance long ago. Once they put Des Cahill up front and skipped any real analysis to just having ex players throw out a few sound bites.
As a fan any highlights package should highlight the contentious decisions that occurred and then give their view not pander to the joe brollys, pat spillanes and colm o rourkes of this world.

Brolly is far too long winded but he did make some good points tonight. Mayo full back is a liability and Mayo are very vulnerable when you run at them. Cork had 4 or maybe even 5 good goal chances yesterday and only took 2. That's a problem for Mayo

Eventually we get the camogie highlights. Been waiting on this all weekend.

Seriously who dreamt this shite up, with camogie "analysts" now too.

Jeez Brolly has to be the worst analyst ever.He has about 10 false statements in about 2 minutes of analysis

40,000 turn up for to welcome a losing Mayo team in McHale Park. Jez, you'd be lucky to get a thousand (children)! Sorry Brolly but this is not 1989! The novelty of just being in an All Ireland final has well collapsed!

He thinks Kerry and Mayo will have it easy enough. This is music to my ears. Joe must have enjoyed his night in Boyle a few weeks ago because he's playing a blinder for us..

Don't know about Mayo! But Galway will have their work cut out for them!

So Mayo have been unable to win the all Ireland because 40,000 people show up at Mchale park after a finals loss.So happy to have tuned into the Sunday game tonight to have learned that priceless bit of information.Thanks Joe for the brilliance of your observation.

I wouldn't be surprised if Mayo decided to impose droit de seigneur on the Rossies. Connacht is really a caste system featuring Cinderossie and her 2 ugly sisters.

Wondered how long it would take brolly to throw a dig at sky and he didn't disappoint. Must have been in the first minute! He just couldn't help himself.

And he managed to get his few obligatory digs at Tyrone in too.
That was never a square ball!!

I didn't realise the Tyrone confidence thing. I would have thought they were one of the top teams but after Donegal were beaten there were questions asked. Brolly loves stirring.

Heard that. The match being on sky just means less people watch it at home. If your team is playing in a big match, most people will make their way to a pub, even if they never frequent a pub.

Brolly just can't help himself can he.
Here he was writing in his newspaper article about Ronan O'Neill's lob but then he comes out with..

For the neutral, it made watching the rest of the match worth it. It also showed the importance of real skill and took the bad taste off Sean Cavanagh's roll around on the ground. Down's leader Kevin McKernan got black-carded, a decision that was swiftly rescinded by the CHC when they watched the footage. If Sean isn't taking one for the team, he's taking one off the other team. It is ironic indeed that a man whose cynicism on the field helped create popular support for the black card has become one of its main beneficiaries.

For those of you who didn't see it. Sean had his back to McKernan who runs at him from behind and shoulders him to the ground into his back.

I see also Colm O'Rourke couldn't resist having a pop at us as well, giving out about Morgan's antics though he did commend big Sean for not reacting to the Down's nipple tactics.
