More important, whatís the right metric for misses:

Missed by inches
Wide as a gate
Yards wide
Miles wide

I donít think I ever heard a commentator say he missed by a meter.
And of course a player that wintered well is always carrying a few extra pounds.

Remember hearing one of the RTE commentators in the last few weeks going on about the ref bringing the ball forward more than 10 yards.

Of course he did you tullip, the distance is 13 metres.

The GAA should rid itself of imperial crap. It is ridiculous when programmes have stones and whatever and no indication of the weight of the player in rational units. Most of the players weren't born when the field measurements were changed, why keep this nonsense?
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Last few programmes had no height or weight, not even sure they had occupation.

I knew a fella who would always shout "Wide as a duck's arse"
