So Armagh are appealing all 10 suspensions. Ffs, the GAA disciplinary procedures are utterly useless. Does the Armagh Co Board really believe that not one Armagh player deserves a suspension? Like I said before, a newly rewritten rule book is needed so loopholes are eliminated and decisions are more water tight. I’d double suspensions if appeals are unsuccessful.

No doubt those posters falling over themselves to condemn Tyrone’s appeal last week will be doing the same again here??

One in, all in. But it is simply a reflection of the general attitude that no club will ever own up even if one of its players decks someone or no hospital will ever own up however bad their treatment of a sick person is.

As Fermanagh could not play Monaghan or Tyrone, if they are still there, then that increases the chance of Cork drawing one of these, which reduces Cork's prospects.

If you got a freeview combi box and connected it to the SKY dish, which is already aligned, surely you would get RTE?

That would imply that RTÉ was on Freesat or Free to Air, which is not true (and couldn't be true otherwise everyone in England would watch Champions League on RTÉ).

So - This is a summary of RTE, The National Broadcaster's performance yesterday.
1 - Put soccer on HD on RTE1 and a crucial hurling championship match on non HD.
2 - Went to a break for news and a lengthy series of advertisements  at half time during the Connaught final
3 - Blocked the signal from users in the north for The Sunday Game last night.

Not a great performance overall.  No wonder we need SKY.

Sky is the problem here. It was sky who blocked the programme
The hurling was on HD yesterday
Lesson: don’t rely on Sky for your GAA coverage on RTE. If you can, get an aerial and Saorview box or enabled TV. Aerial set up for about £150/200 and there will be no ‘blue screening’ of GAA and champions league

I think there are parts where sky is the only way to access RTE. No saorview signal.

No saorview or NI RTÉ signal? You could get Saorsat.

agree total apathy in both counties, won`t be travelling as just can`t seem to muster the enthusiasm, its simply prolonging the inevitable hammering somewhere down the line if Armagh win.

I plan to attend, but that is as much because I think it might be nice to visit Sligo on one of the longest days of the year as any expectation of great football.

Unfortunately whatever the result the same system / management will be in place next year where it will be straight back to division 3 and another short summer. To be honest I think Sligo will win this one, hopefully they do and put Armagh out of there misery.

We were unlucky to go to Div 3, we might not be relegated again, but I don't expect much more.

If you assume that each province has 2 slots in the Super 8 and that the Dubs, Kerry, Cork, Galway, Donegal  and Mayo will make it there is one free Ulster slot and a free Leinster slot and Tyrone, Monaghan, Ros and Fermanagh plus others probably in competition for those spots.

Mayo are likely to progress, but they would have a chance of meeting either Tyrone/Monaghan and then Cork in the following round and these might well be close games, especially with Cork you never know. If Mayo drew Cork and Fermanagh could not draw Monaghan/Tyrone, then they would get a lesser team and might make the Super 8s, while Mayo might not. The draw next week will tell all.

I live in the north. I watched the hurling on RTE 1 HD. Not sure why there was soccer on yours.
I was able to watch the Sunday Game.

I think the problem only occurred if you access RTE through the likes of Sky.

I didn’t think there was an RTE1 HD. Don’t think there is on Sky anyway
I access RTE through the aerial. There definitely is RTE 1 HD.

You could both be right.
RTÉ Saorview from Clermont Cairn is indeed HD. GFA RTÉ from NI transmitters is not HD, as far as I know.

I'm not sure of the rules re repeat  fixtures in the round 3 draw, but with expected rusults next week there is some probably  of a Mayo v Monaghan or Tyrone, so removed a big gun. Someone middling might  draw the winners of Louth v Leitrim and likely beat them, but this would provide an opportunity for the provincial losers to beat this team and reach the super 8, so it is very much dependent on the draw.

r3 and r4 don't allow repeats so tyrone can't get monaghan in r3 and Fermanagh can't get monaghan in r4 (if they are all in these draws)

Which increases the chances of Tyrone, Monaghan and Fermanagh reaching the Super 8. Mind you Fermanagh can't get Armagh either, which might push them on to Mayo if both Armagh and Monaghan were still in the R4 draw.

I haven't seen anyone from Tyrone say they were in the right. Tyrone got 7 suspensions according to Teamtalk yesterday. If Tyrone had hung on they'd have had 7 players missing from the final.

There was 2.5 minutes of 3 extra minutes played when Armagh scored the point that was a half chance for a goal. I think most people assumed the ref would blow the game up from the kick out and Armagh's last chance had gone. That's when the row started. Armagh were certainly alot quicker into the row with their subs and management. Tyrone played their part no doubt but the fear of missing a final was playing a bit more on Tyrone minds than Armagh at that stage.

It is a good lesson for both sides that it is not over until it is over.
If there was  at least 30 seconds still to play why would anyone assume the ref would blow full time

When was the last time a goalkeeper kicked a ball out inside 30 seconds 3 minutes into injury time at the end of extra time? Wasn't going to be in a rush. As it happens the referee played another minute and a half when the ball was eventually kicked out and gave Armagh a chance to get the equaliser. Tyrone will learn the lesson the next time. Don't hoof the ball back to the opposition when your winning by a point in injury time! Fair play to Armagh they worked the opportunity and took their chance

it is a useful lesson that it ain't over until it is over.

Serious third goal, worthy of a world cup.
