Just a note on last nights show. It said Cooper won 5 AI medals for Kerry. By my counting, it's only 4 as he missed 2014 with injury. Just saying.

He was on the PANEL! And claims a medal! Think he togged out with the 28 Jersey that day!

People are budgeting! This super 8's lark is both time and financially consuming.

We are in the middle of Summer Holidays and family time has to be taken care of.

‘The Hurling Game’,  RTE2 every Sunday 9.30 to 10.30.

Followed by ‘The Graveyard Slot’: a round-up of that other GAA sport played by the majority.

‘The Graveyard Slot’ comprises of everyone talking up the new challengers even though we know they're all shite. And playing down Dublin!

Whatever happened to Donie Shine?

The same thing that happened to Kevin Nolan!

I think we have to many confusing rules already.

I think that there is a new rule created every year to curtail cute coaching.

I think if your team is good enough they will find a way.

Good solid home win for Dublin. Always had Donegal at arms length. Dublin won the game running the subs bench, not getting injuries, not getting cards and slowing the game down for the last 15 minutes.

The 7pm start is tough on Donegal supporters.

Jez what time did the Donegal supporter get home last night at?

1am?

The expense of travel?

A serious disrespect to Provincial champions!
And same for any Tyrone and Roscommon supporters that stayed on for the second game, and many did.
Dublin playing in Omagh next week at 7pm too. Saturday games should be 3.30pm and 5.30pm or thereabouts.

Did any of these supporters wait on? I'd presume if they did they were staying the night?

In fairness the Rossies are not as far away!

What really is ridulous is how many Dublin supporters came in late for their own game in their home patch. I saw Rossies and Heron Gutters and Red Hands in Dublin since around 3. A GAA game is short enough besides being 10 or 15 mins late. No disrespect to genuine fans.

In fairness to many of the Dublin Fans, a lot of them would be after finishing work and it would be a rush to get to the match in 15 minutes!

Was hoping the rain near the end would help the Croatian President win the Wet T-shirt competition ;)

The difference between Meehan and Keegan as pundits is night and day. Meehan came off as knowledgeable and articulate. Keegan clueless and classless.

Where does Charlie Redmond come in the scheme of things?  ;D

The readings from my sickening arrogance detector are off the charts right now.

Delighted with the win.
Couldn’t give a f**k what it was like as a spectacle tbh.
Best wishes to Paul Conroy.
A nasty injury.
We are down to the bare bones now around the middle with Duggan also out for the next 2 games.

Yes, Galway have finally realised it's about the result and not playing nice football against Kerry.

Think Kerry expected an old Skool shoot out today!

I don’t think it follows that because Tyrone hammered Ros, they would beat Galway (or Mayo for that matter). A poorer 2017 Galway still hammered Donegal.

Tyrone would beat Galway or Kerry with a few to spare, they’re on a different level.

How would they get on against Monaghan?

Well done Galway.

Croke Park losing streak over.

Kerry Losing streak over as well!

Would be fair to say Tyrone are now second favs for the all ireland behind the dubs?  I realise the conditions are poor but both Kerry and Galway have been horrible.


Maybe they are horrible because they are cancelling each other out? Maybe not?

Broken leg for Conroy.

Jez, hate to see sportmen in their prime badly injured!
