Painful.

Very much so but not unexpected.
Hopefully we do the business in the ne t game and can get a wee run on the EL

Nice kit, but the stars...?

Stars are always a nice touch in my opinion.

Maybe, but Tyrone with three, ourselves sticking two on, Derry one... is it not all a little “small time” when you have Kerry, Dublin and even the likes of Cork, Meath and Galway out there with nothing on their jersey?

Tyrone will need a 4th star by next September.

Are Dublin not entering?

I like the two refs idea myself but as has been said I don't think the not being allowed back into your own half suggestion would work

Nice kit that - definitely a case of less is more. Keep the design relatively plain - looks much better. If Armagh are due a change (which I don't think one is due), then I hope they take note.

As regards the change to white shorts for Tyrone a few years back, was that not because way back in the day the kit was traditionally all white with a red trim?

we have had the current one for two years which is generally the length of time a jersey lasts

I think the normal period before a jersey change is three years. Exceptions are usually around a change to shirt sponsorship, as was the case when we parted company with Hugh Morgan.

ah, didn't realise that

Enforce the 4 step rule first.

The four step rule is easily the stupidest in the sport, which is why it's so regularly fudged.

Yet it is. And while it is there it should be enforced

Just leaving now for Paris, should be a formality for Celtic a nice we 2-0 win and move onto cup final this Sunday :P. In all seriousness PSG will have one eye on Monaco this weekend and i just hope they rest a few of their superstars and Celtic have the game of their lives and get stuck into them and get a nice we 1-1, would be massive for Celtic but suppose i need to stop dreaming. A team that beats us 5-0 at CP will no doubt be looking to carry out the same punishment.
A good performance like we did against Munich and get to Hampden on Sunday and put Well in their box as we play them 3 times in a few weeks so can't afford to give them a sniff...COYBIG

After PSG the next three games are all against Motherwell if I remember rightly

Enforce the 4 step rule first.

that is another frustratingly inconsistent rule

Without checking I thing the Treoir refers to tackling as a skill and you can only tackle the ball.
Sure nearly every tackle in practice is technically illegal and every ref seems to have their own interpretation.

that's what I mean and I have probably phrased it wrong earlier. Its very frustrating anyway and something I think needs looking at

What sort of tackle would   you suggest?

I don't make the rules. Maybe we already do have a clearly defined tackle but in that case Id like to see it reffed consistently as it seems to be very inconsistent from game to game and within games too. Its frustrating as a fan and must be more so as a player

Any harm in talking about the aesthetics of the game? Personally I find it great to watch. Seems to flow a lot better. No pulling and dragging, no blanket defences because of the mark. I say take out the behind posts and incorporate the rest of the rules into GAA football.

I enjoyed it also and agree with a lot of this. Not sure about the tackle though. However in football we do need a defined tackle

Good post Cavan.
Some people on this forum seem to expect the Sky to fall at any moment every day of the week.
Negative after negative about everything.
One big question from Saturday - whose ghost hit O'Shea in the face??

Reasonable constructive criticism is not negativity.
To try to reinforce the main concern:
It’s the equivalent of the English Amateur rugby league jetting off to New Zealand to play the All blacks in a hybrid game including scrummaging. Wouldn’t happen , crazy stuff! I Wouldn’t glibly dismiss the Barrett assault, such tackles are very rare in Gaelic football , yet they are almost guaranteed in every game of this Rules fiasco, and are committed by ~20stone professional athletes.
 The argument that “ the players like it” - (of course they do, it’s a chance to represent their country on an all expenses trip to the other side of the world ) , does not trump the GAA’s responsibility to look after player safety.

maybe I ave missed it but I haven't seen anyone glibly dismiss the tackle on Barrett. It was cowardly and borderline assault in my opinion

Amusing seeing Big Dick calling out the Dublin players for snubbing the Aussie Rules team and the players kicking up a fuss.

Whatever why you cut it, the entire Dublin contingent opting out was a snub so they’d be better served to stop telling people piss is rain and expecting them to believe it. No one likes them to begin with but they’re really giving no one any reason not to dislike them with craic like this.

Going off to Australia to play professionals without any players from our best and only professional side was obviously a bad start to say the least.

We don't have any professional sides

You just keep telling yourself that. If it makes it easier to believe the lie.

"engaged in a specified activity as one's main paid occupation rather than as an amateur."

That's not any of our players or teams
