Jesus lads the steps thing is easy. You've 4 (or 10 depending on the ref), fouled or not.

Hold on a second there, you forgot about the half steps. It takes 3 half steps to equal a full step!

Or if you are a small player, you can take up to 24 little quick steps.

On the issue of advantage and taking a shot, when they introduced the rule I was at a talk given by Pat McEnaney. He told us that if we get advantage then we may as well have a pop at the posts because if we miss, it'll be pulled back for a free anyway.

While leaning into the big back so that when he moves backwards you fall on the ground and win a free

Some of the pundits are poor but with a decent presenter they are not all irredeemable. The co-commentators are mainly awful. Is there someone inside RTE who sits down every year with Carney and Carr and says another great year lads. Let's do another year of the same?

Was listening to the early part of Mayo vs Sligo while en route to Portlaoise for the LS vs LD game yesterday. Tommy came out with the gem "that's the kind of 50/50 ball that gives the forward no chance". Somebody needs to sit him down and ask him to explain that type of rubbish, and maybe if he had to do that, he might put an ounce of thought into what he says in the future.

Or give him the boot altogether - but I know that never happens in RTE/Hotel California.

Great,

Almost as good was last year when he was "co-commentating", (he never shut up) on the Mayo v Tipp semi-final last year. When Tipp player was given a deserved black card early in the game, Tommy tom tom says something to the effect of, " You cant go giving a player a black card after 8 minutes".

Another example of where RTE is with their attention to detail on GAA, the headline after the Carlow win V Wexford, was "Turlough O Connor hails Carlow win"  ::)
Manager's names is Turlough O Brien.

They also put Frank Fitzsimmons Antrim manager up last night as they talked to Gearoid Adams.

Didn't they discuss the black card last night and also mention about how it spoils games with guys getting sent off far to early.

This is why the rule should state a number of seconds rather than a number of steps, in my opinion.
