Probably a premature obituary - keep her in the can lad. ;)

not dead on a life support machine    : ) 2 swallows don't make a summer neither do two good games

It used to and thanks to TG4 we know that those "good" ones werent even that good

no-one mentioned those old games shown on TG4 but there were loads of great games during the noughties involving Tyrone, Armagh, Dublin, Kerry, Mayo, Donegal even Sligo....so good  Ulster finals had to move to Croke Park
And loads of crap games between them.

Armagh v Tyrone 2000
Tyrone v Kerry 2003
Tyrone v Armagh 2003
Tyrone v Dublin 2008
Kerry v Dublin 2009
Kerry v Dublin 2004
Kerry v Mayo 2004
Kerry v Mayo 2006
Armagh v Donegal 2002
Armagh v Donegal 2004
Armagh v Donegal 2006
Armagh v Donegal 20 :D07
Dublin v Donegal 2002
Tyrone v Donegal 2007
Tyrone v Mayo 2008

Throw in Cork, too.

All the following games were crap.

Kerry v Cork 2002 x 3
Kerry v Cork 2004
Kerry v Cork 2005
Kerry v Cork 2006 x 2
Kerry v Cork 2007
Cork v Meath 2007

IS Dessie Dolan a bit hard to listen to or is it just my imagination?
Is no call for a co-commentator. I find them all grating GAA and soccer...

I suppose depends on the county... is a great senior club championship in Tyrone as well as at Intermediate and Junior. Any of 8 teams at least could win the seniors and recently was 7 different winners in 7 years and usually big crowds and hughly competitive good games. Most here enjoy it more than county football I think is true to say.

If by real stuff you mean uncompetitive and repetitive then fair enough. Dublin are the best exponents of the modern game, but they're hardly exciting are they? I'm just expressing a personal opinion here. I find modern intercounty football dull. The endless hand passing, the lack of physicality, the handbags blow ups, the make it up as you go along refereeing, the atmosphere at matches etc. Modern football is rubbish in my opinion

have to agree  with you for the most part although was a great atmosphere in Omagh with a full house and the Dubs there and wasn't the worst game.. but yeah most tends to be rubbish at county level these days

The title of this thread needs changes to intercounty football.  Club football is still very entertaining
You mustn't have watched the last four All-Ireland club finals.

Tyrone v Dublin this evening was light years ahead both in quality and entertainment.

but overall not just some selected games club football is much better

Spirited performance from Tyrone but never looked like winning. Dubs are serious outfit and played within themselves. I'd fear for Tyrone if they meet them in Croke Park again cud get a much heavier defeat but having said that can't see anyone beat Dublin.

I think there’s a big question Dublin need to answer this year. Can Dublin win an all Ireland without their key man who they needed to win the game when the shit hit the fan v Mayo. The treatment of Connolly by management has been so questionable I think it has to come back to bite. Diarmuid who has been their best footballer for 7 years. He’s out. It might not be Tyrone best placed to take advantage but perhaps a Galway or Kerry will exploit it better. The game is the poorer withou Connolly and I think the Dubs will be as well. Can Gavin sort this out this year yet?

sure they went through championship last year hardly needing Connolly. Don't know did he play against Tyrone maybe came on late when game was long won. After Kerry's collapse last week will anyone give them the challenge Mayo did in the final? New system means they can take a loss on Saturday and still most likely make semi-final. I can't see them beat unless Tyrone can take them and I don't mean this weekend,  though it would lay down a marker for later if they do.

Have to laugh at Harte and these expert coaches who said the game was "evolving"... good to see now the penny has dropped and people realise the game was being destroyed and guess who was right all along... Joe Brolly

Who? A handful of people on this board??

most of the GAA has copped onto it hence the fall in attendances... blind yourself to it and it'll get worse. Check out Rory Story latest skit on it... is huge agreement with him. Disgrace how these coaches ruined our game sure even Enda McGinley has seen the light, took a while but he got there

Any harm in suggesting that RTE's constant stream of negative punditry is feeding this perception that the game's getting worse when no such thing is happening?

did you watch the games at the weekend? people are capable of thinking for themselves. Brolly and them didn't even criticise the last 10 mins of Dublin game which  was dire

Didn't see the games at the weekend.

Ok... not easy viewing, to put it mildly.
