The point that some seem to deliberately miss is VAR was introduced to improve accuracy etc and so we don't have the controversial moments anymore, as it will be "technology" deciding, not quite.

Quote from: paddyjohn on October 03, 2023, 04:02:47 PMMr McDermott is a a good friend of the SV voice lads. I see they had their all stars at the weekend. Must of been good attenders at the ladies games all year or did they pick them going by the finals?

You can see from that list they weren't paying too much attention lol One of the Moneyglass players is just back from a long term injury and has hardly played all year

Quote from: barnish oggie on October 03, 2023, 03:25:01 PMThe money should have gone to neither Corrigan or Ballycastle and been put into Dunsilly to make it a more suitable venue for county finals.

With Owenbeg only down the road, they didn't have to go far to see how to do it correctly.

I'm sure the fact that St John's clubman Collie Donnelly was the Antrim chairman at the time is a coincidence

You would hardly think Loughgiel will play McManus as badly again

Quote from: screenexile on October 01, 2023, 06:42:23 PMJesus Zachary Johnson has zero charisma... just a terrible talker and communicator. Loads of silences umms and ahhs and repeating himself all the time.

How can he lead a team like that?

Ah come on me or you could captain one of those teams. Ryder Cup captaincy is the biggest pile of over stated nonsense, Donald will now reinvent himself, like McGinley did, as some sort of guru.

Donald was heading towards oblivion, his career almost over as he couldn't qualify for events, until Stenson made the jump to LIV.

So Dunloy gone in Antrim to leave a Cushendall v Loughgiel final, Ballyhale nearly gone in Kilkenny, Dicksboro had them and looked very good, Ballyhale down to 14 men but Dicksboro seemed to lose a bit of belief.

There was no way Ballyhale would lay down

Quote from: Jonkunlon on October 01, 2023, 04:12:23 PMFew saw that coming. Fully deserved too. Dunloy were outworked and outsmarted all over the field. Hate to say it but Dunloy looked leggy. Made stick and handling errors over and over again. Guilty of overplaying the game too.

Not trying to be clever after the fact but you kind of could see it coming though, football exertions and being on the go non stop with Antrim & Dunloy.

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on September 30, 2023, 10:17:51 PMWhat were the odds before the tournament started? We're the Americans favourites?

Nothing in it, I think the US was 5/6 & Europe 6/5
So the eejit doing the VAR thought a goal was given and just said check complete to confirm what he thought was a goal  ::)
So they have admitted Diaz goal was onside

PGMOL acknowledge a significant human error occurred during the first half of Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool.

The goal by Luiz Diaz was disallowed for offside by the on-field team of match officials... 1/2"

This was a clear and obvious factual error and should have resulted in the goal being awarded through VAR intervention, however, the VAR failed to intervene.
PGMOL will conduct a full review into the circumstances which led to the error."

Creggan beating Cushendun is a minor shock

Quote from: imtommygunn on September 28, 2023, 10:19:57 PMThat has to be some kind of complete balls up... can't be blatant racism surely??

I thought it looked like a genuine balls up by the official, didn't know it happened 18 mths ago

Yeah on mobile you can't see who latest posts are from in each section etc unless tilting to landscape. Is there a fix for this ?

So we think Dunloys big ball exploits will adversely affect them in the hurling ? Keelan Molloy injured ? If they get over Loughgiel it's a week to the football final
