Quote from: Captain Scarlet on February 12, 2024, 11:32:48 AMDonal Óg gets ten monologues a year written into his contract? It's so painfully set up and the man does not give a flyin' f**k about Ulster Hurling.

He was on one about the split season and then when a Westmeath player said he loved it...there was nothing said. I'd be more keen to hear from the likes of the Louth Captain who was on last night.

But, hurling folk are more precious than rugby people. If you don't scream hurling is the best game ever then they have an issue. Maybe some people don't like it. Maybe kids, even the ones who start young simply do not enjoy it as much as other sports...that's just a thought mind.

His rant before the Cork v Kilkenny game was something to behold.

He was giving out that Croke Park allowed Cork to proceed with the renovations to SuperValue Pairc and this was a millstone around Cork GAA, you really couldn't make it up.

Quote from: Saffrongael on February 11, 2024, 07:53:54 PMJust the 12 steps I counted for the Waterford goal v Clare  ;)
The ref couldn't see if he tapped the ball on the stick or not, cos he was facing away and had a big Clare mullocker on his back.

Not all hurling people are.

Donal Og is a dose talking about the sacred Munster hurling championship

The longest period Cork went without winning an all Ireland used to be 1903-19 or 16 years.
For Kilkenny the longest period was 1922-32 and 1947-57 or 10 years.

Cork's Last all Ireland was 2005 so this year is year 19
Kilkenny's last all Ireland was 2015 so this year is year 10.

Who introduced the short hurls to the game? It seems to have happened between the 2020 all ireland and the 2021 final. Was it Limerick ?

Marty Mallon in Down was playing with a 32" hurl in the 90's. Everyone else was hammering away with 36 and 37" hurls at that time.

Kyle Hayes starts for Limerick against the Dubs this weekend, a month before his sentencing trial...

Do Limerick know something the rest of us don't?

I wouldn't read too much into it. It's just John Kiely trying to create a siege mentality from within and he is firmly backing his player. Rightly or wrongly but he's stuck his neck on the block for Hayes.

Probably wrongly

Many will hold that view but Kiely either believes in his innocence or he has decided to completely ignore any off the field misconduct because he sees Hayes' value to this Limerick team as being greater than any moralistic standpojnt.

If Hayes was a fringe player I'm not sure he would have thought it worth the media scrutiny of deciding to play him in a League game in February. If Hayes walks free an innocent man and helps Limerick create history to win 5 in a row Kiely will feel vindicated in standing by his player.

He's been found guilty of violent disorder in a court of law, Kiely can believe all he likes, but that's the fact. All we're waiting on is his sentencing

It's not a good look for Kiely at all.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

I was watching a camogie match today. The curse of the rucks. There is no ground hurling any more. This has been replaced by rucks thanks to the short hurls.

I was at a school match last week and noticed some of the short hurls. Seriously reduces how far the lads can hit it but I suppose it's maybe better for control etc but on a heavy pitch it didn't really improve the quality of the game.
