Horrendous game to watch - with puke football the order of the day. Kilcoo were lucky to stay in touch as at times Clonduff threatened to take them apart. But when you are playing the all Ireland champions you need to give yourself a chance. If thatís setting up defensively then so be it.
Thought the ref gave some strange decisions to both clubs but gave an equal amount to each of them so no one can have gripes about that.
I xtra time was brutal to watch and then came the excitement. Penalties may not be everyoneís cup of tea but what a way to end the game. Brilliant. Only thing I question is the exact same players hitting penalties in sudden death - is this how itís supposed to be?

Roll on tomorrow night. Letís hope the noisy neighbours have an off day and we can capitalise.

Yeh itís in the rule book the 5 who take the first 5 pens take the penalties in sudden death.. Armagh/Galway match in the AI was the first I heard of it

No offence but Scor??....does anyone give a shit really.
Outdated concept.

Well, I do and an aim of our association is to support the Irish language, traditional Irish dancing, music, song, and other aspects of Irish culture. Some clubs need to read the aims of the GAA.
Does your OWN Club support all 5 strands of the GAA?

Heíll do his usual and ignore that, say anything about his OWN club and heíll put in some bs question instead

How many championship finals are there in ladies' football this weekend? Why are there so many?


Too many. What value is there in a junior C championship medal that doesnít get you into ulster? Not worth a damn. The teams competing in these finals know itís embarrassing stuff. The two beaten semi finalists in the A grade automatically make up the B final - what a stupid idea. Championship is championship - if your beat your beat - try harder next season.
Very simplistic way of looking at it. It matters a lot to the girls playing it.  Dublin have a lot of various junior championships and to the lads taking part it's as important to them as the senior championship is to the bodens and kilmacuds. Gaa is about taking part. A love of the game. Not everyone is at thr top level.

Does it though? Itís a bit much in my opinion and our club was in one of them. Itís not really a championship if 6 teams can make a final in each grade
[/b]

There are only 8 teams in senior and intermediate - so literally only two teams donít get medals. Itís crazy. And saying it matters to the girls playing in it - I know the girls at my club cudnt give a Damn about it. When beaten in the A junior championship- they are lucky to field in other games.

Agree with the 2 boys, just feels the same as participation trophies that are handed out at underage tournaments

Rumours from within the GB Civil Service is that "Operation Unicorn" is now in effect. Supposedly a formal announcement will be made at 6pm - don't trust me on that!

Announcement will be made once London Stock Exchange is closed

Seen a video of the row.. My thoughts would be Magill didnít hit Jerome hard enough, then the Kilcoo player came in to clean Magill but the Burren man put him on his hole should probably do a bit more S&C.

Ref did right, let them get it over and done with and the deal with the aftermath.

Over 18 games they werenít good enough, great drama that it comes to the wire but missed opportunities in the last few months.

Should be an interesting game tonight, Iím guessing neither will show their hand but also both will want that win.

How come Rostrevor in Inter or did I read that wrong?

Lost Senior relegation play-off last year if I remember correctly

Can anyone tell me is next season or the following season that the big teams are allowed to enter reserve teams into the all-county leagues??
Je-us,you ask some stupid questions.

Its a common enough practice in other counties.
I know it is but this has never been discussed at County Board level in Down.TH is just an irritant.

This has been discussed on numerous occassions and Burren are mad to enter a reserve team in ACL

And itís been rejected many times by Div 4 teams.. Stop hashing out this same topic every 6 months itís boring

This weekend was a tale of different sorts for two Goalkeepers owned by United. One doing well for Forest and one doing not so well for United.

Tbh Henderson shit the nest last weekend

The two big games of the weekend are in division 1b tomorrow. RGU v Loughinisland and Ford v Carryduff. Looking at the last round of fixtures I imagine that these four teams could win the last round so it means this weekend is so vital. Carryduff will really want to cement their safety to bed this weekend so I fear for Bryansford.
The games should be streamed by the clubs as they are so important.

If you want to see the games pay your money at the gate and watch them, saying clubs should pay for streaming etc.. The shite you spout gets worse and worse
