The Armagh #2 ran after Comer and barged into him on the way to the tunnel.

Thats how the melee started

Two people jostling is not a melee.
Who next joined these two people? That is where the problem lies.

No one should be paying any attention to the league results.

Derry are rightly favourites for this game.

If a team learns from a defeat, whether it be Tyrone against Kerry last year or Armagh against Donegal this year, then they can reverse things second time around. I'd favour Derry here, they need a disciplined defence, Galway got too many frees against Armagh.

Its all in the coaching and team culture built up over a number of years. If anyone thinks that McKLeever and McGeeneys 'style' isnt all over that team then they need their heads read.
Monkey see monkey do.
Its premeditated not to ever actually strike. Becasue thats a sending off offence. So lads, no striking whatever you do.
But make sure you grapple, wrestle, grab, twist and hold onto him like your life depends on it and dont ever back down or let go first. Thats a sign of weakness and we cant have that, because after all, we're all big men and we like to flex how big we are.

Whilst there is alot to admire about Armagh's journey and football theyve played, they still get involved too much, indulge in thuggish shite and foul too easily. Their obsession with chest beating macho bull shit and insistence in turning every game into a dick-measuring contest was always gonna bite them at some stage.
Theyve lost this particular dick-measuring contest and its gonna hurt for a while.

Ridiculous to blame the manager and the defensive coach for an incident that happened on the pitch simply because they were tough players when they played themselves. The players on the pitch take responsibility for their own actions and one Armagh player stepped over the line. The rest of it is simply hand wringing and faux outrage from people with an anti Armagh agenda.

It is a bit disappointing that there is a still an "all in" approach after events earlier in the season. The problem with everyone piling in is that things get magnified and there is always a risk of a Tiernan Kelly type incident in the heat of the moment.

Everyone involved in the melee should be suspended from inter county football for the rest of 2022.

Using penalties for the margin of victory is a bit odd, as they were not all taken.

No sour grapes. Armagh could have missed a 45 also.

Ibrox has nothing to do with it

45s might be more suitable, there are generally more 45s in a game then penalties.

They may have to open the toll as happened in 2003. They are only allowed have a queue of a certain length

Over half the Derry crowd stayed if not more.

For a 6pm throw in in a game that had little interest for any neutrals? Most should stay on for the second game tomorrow,  more intriguing contest and on at a more suitable time.

Better contest, better time and Armagh takes an hour less to get to than Derry, you could still be home at a reasonable hour.

Hopefully, tomorrow will feature games where the result is in some doubt for 60 mins.

I'm leaving the country for the month of July.

There will be Orange triumphalism, no doubt.

Sorta coming away from my previous predictions.. Galway must be loving the hype Armagh are getting..

If Armagh were playing Mayo as Connaught champions would they be as confident?
Mayo have been playing at the highest level for a decade. They are a known quantity.
Galway aren't.  We don't know what level they are at. It could be a feast or a famine.
On the GAAboard it's the only match where predictions are split down the middle.

It isn't every day I agree with Seafoid, but that is about it.

It seems the winners will be playing Derry anyway.

Galway have won an All Ireland Mayo havenít in the past decades..

Armagh have won an All Ireland after Galway, so I am not sure that is a convincing difference.

No. Mayo are proven performers in Croke Park. Galway, like Armagh, haven't been in Croke Park that much. Armagh is just glad to be there, which does not show any lack of regard for Galway.
