is it goals only in the penalty shoot-out??  If its 4-4 and team 1 miss can the last guy just tap it over the bar for the win??
No.
Goals only I believe.

GAA Discussion / Re: Ulster Championship 2019

No word at all here about Donegal and Fermanagh. We're all busy with more important things I guess!

Looking forward to the game, as always with the first run out in the championship, even if Brewster Park has a few bad memories for us. Last time I was there (been in the US quite a few years now) was for the 2003 meeting which was down there with Crossmaglen 2010 for shockingly poor Donegal performances and one of the worst games I've ever seen.

I guess we are warm favourites for this, but I don't expect anything close to the one-sided affair that was the Ulster final. I think if we turn up, we should win by three or four points after a tight enough game. You never know in Ulster though!

Be interesting to see what team lines out for us. With McBrearty back, assuming he starts, we have a lot of options up front (MacNiallais's absence notwithstanding), although it would be hard to see Oisin Gallen being squeezed in too (might find Ulster Championship football at bit different to the league too as a young lad). Maybe they'll play Murphy centre forward and go with McBrearty, Gallen and Brennan, but where do you put Niall O'Donnell then, another young lad who had a good league?

Penalty f**king shootout? That’s ridiculous. There will be no penalty shootouts for an AI semi or final, you can be sure of that. No, it’s a replay, cha-ching!

AI final will go to replay if level after 70 mins. AI semi finals will have extra time and if level after that its a replay.

Is this the same fella got himself into trouble last year with a similar act by chance?
different fella I think. This lad is a county u20. Possible vice captain?

Was on social media earlier in the day saying he was going to do it. Needs a wee trip through the courts - only way he will learn

If that were true and it was preserved it would go along way toward showing premeditation and securing a conviction.

Lough behaved very badly against Pomeroy in the league match too. They guy in question had the jersey ripped off Kieran McGeary before the ball was thrown in.

Wrong guy.
This is were hearsay gets dangerous

I probably should have included leg-tanning in topics likely to inflame but nevertheless the tanned one has spoken and predicts a very comfortable victory for Mayo.

The problem with TV sports though is they're not interested (RTE in particular) in the likes of us - people who are that interested (some even knowledgeable) we'd post on a discussion board. We'll watch regardless.

They want to attract the guys who don't have a clue and get them talking in the office, factory floor, in the vans etc to their similarly mildly interested mates about "what yer man said...jazes it was gas...". Its about ratings and despite the crap fare on offer the committed fans are in the bag.

Sadly you are completely correct here.
