To answer the poll - Yes. Paid in to see club and county championship games over the years. The 1999 All-Ireland Senior final between Waterford and Mayo is one of my favourite all-time football games.

I'd also agree with Jinxy in that it's unfair and unrealistic to compare the mens and womens codes of football or indeed any sport which demands a significant element of physical strength, power and combat, even if physical contact either doesn't happen (tennis singles) or is against the rules (basketball). The only sports I can think of where men and women can compete on a reasonably level playing field whilst still demanding an element of physical & mental fitness is show jumping, horse riding and to a limited extent motor racing.

Good games so far. Some turnaround by Clare in the last 6 minutes or so and they have real momentum going into the second half now.

Tough conditions for the final with the rain coming down very heavily now. Cork have a very defensive set up which is surprising for a team with Kilkenny-like dominance in the past decade. Dublin just can't break it down at the moment though they look well capable of winning it if they can find the scores.

Dublin much the better but only lead 0-3 to 0-4 at HT due to Cork's defensive set up, poor shooting and decision making at times. Incredibly there are players out there without gloves!

Like the men's final the quality isn't the highest but there's savage intensity as both teams really go for this.

Eh, is the clock not supposed to stop during breaks in play?
There should have been at least 20 seconds left after the penalty because the clock ran on for about 10 seconds after the last Dublin free alone.
Would hate to see the clock come into the mens' game to be honest.
More trouble than it's worth.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Late penalty for Dublin resulting in a 1pt win for cork makes that disallowed point all the harder to take
