4-24 is some score for a defensive hard to watch team all the same.

Youíd have to say that if a team that donít even leave their half (according to some) can put that score up it must say a lot about the Rossies and sure the Dubs must put up at least 6-50?

Do they not sell juvenile hill tickets?

Only a week to go and this is a huge test of Galway imo. If they manage to put it up to Kerry in a champo game in Croker Iíll start to believe they have what their teams have lacked in the last few years. I think the Super 8s will benefit Galway because theyíll get a champo game in Croker that isnít do or die.

If Roscommon show up they could give Donegal and Tyrone a good game, the first group is very interesting though.

Here is the link from GAA website.

Note that the football free taking contest will have kicks from 33m out (top of the D).

RTE article states kicks will be from the 45...https://www.rte.ie/sport/gaa/2018/0705/976624-free-taking-comp/

Hopefully the referees will be aware of the rules of the competition and have the kicks taken from the correct distance.

When I was in a free taking comp, albeit at schools level, it was from the 45. Maybe theyíve changed it to the 33 but Iím almost certain it was initially from te 45, think I seen it from the 45 at inter county too.

Although Dublin are massive favourites the Leinster championship isn't over yet.

The two semis are Mayo v Derry and Kildare v Kerry
The Leinster final is on Friday night. Kildare v Dublin. After that game is played the venues and times will be made public probably a double header i'd say.

Why is Kildare v Kerry on the GAA website?

The stats from the game are in that link above.

Those kick out stats have surprised me, didn't think Mayo were that dominant on them; If before the game you'd shown me that stats I'd have said Mayo would have won comfortably.

Lost a few key knockouts near the end though

The heat wave is making people delirious.

" they're the best team to never win an All-Ireland but contrary to the history books, this is a team full of winners."

https://www.sportsjoe.ie/gaa/american-club-confirm-deadline-day-signing-of-mayo-duo-166706 

Its getting to embarrassing levels now on Social media and indo media fawning over the peoples champs.

The only sure thing on annual basis in the GAA that Mayo would not win the all Ireland.

Yeah, the best team not to win the All-Ireland is the 1982 Kerry team

That team wonít plenty AIs

Possible 2019 Mayo team?
--------------------Hennelly

O'Donoghue----Harrison------Barrett
Akram------------Keegan---------P Durcan

-----------Vaughan----------DOíC

McLoughlin-------AOS----------Durcan

Loftus-----------CO'C----------Doherty

Subs to include - SO'S, Regan, Hall, Hanley, Drake, Boland, Douglas and whoever else of the old guard that can go again. Defence is the area they need to refresh most though.
They won't be gone too far away next year regardless.

Swap AOS and DOC for a start, AOS hasnít the engine for it.

AO'S played a lot more deeper than DO'C Saturday evening and gave him the freedom to get forward as well as he did. They wouldn't be playing in the traditonal formation anyway but both will be there. No Coen would be madness, he will be accommodated somewhere. Barrett's legs are gone while Vaughan has had a bad time with injuries, still good squad options. The likes of Douglas and Drake are not good enough and time isn't exactly on their side anymore.

Coen just isnít good enough at this level imo

Can it go to point difference in the league table? Im guessing it can

In the event of teams finishing on equal points the tie shall be decide by the following means and in the order specified:

(i) Where two teams only are involved - the outcome of the meeting of the two teams in the Group

(ii) Score difference - subtracting the total scores against from the total scores for

(iii) Highest total score for

(iv) Highest total goals for

(v) a play-off

Highly unlikely, but what if three teams are level on points and are equal on (i)-(iii)? Obviously there canít be a three team play off. Also where did you find this list?

http://www.gaa.ie/sportteller-content/stories/1/1/da3cc421-de34-4bdf-acdf-8588f1e77048/index.html#Slide_6

Quite a decent document that.

If three teams are level, the odds of they all having identical scoring records would be astronomical.  One team would surely be eliminated and the other two might get a play-off if everything else was level.

Even the soccer World Cup groups had something similar - remember 1994 with Ireland's group - all 4 teams on 4 points and all 4 with a goal difference of 0.  It got sorted on goals for deciding first and fourth - deciding second came down to the game between the two (Ireland beat Italy 1-0).

Where does it say that in the document?
Also no matter how unlikely surely the Newbridge saga will have taught the GAA they need to have all eventualities accounted for
