Gentlemen, attack the post, not the poster.

Its a forum of opinion which I believe is an accurate description of Mayo and their players.

Hopefully Mayo get knocked out early of the championship so we don't have to suffer their fans or media love in.

Have a good evening.

It has been said a few times but bears repeating - Cillian O'Connor was very overdue that red card. His brother was extremely lucky to escape with a yellow card for a really nasty and dangerous challenge directly afterwards on the same player.

It must be a while since Mayo beat Galway?

the incident only happen after the referee had abdicated all responsibility for the welfare off the players , Cillian had galway lads screaming in his face after missing a free earlier  and they are suprized he reacted? Diarmuids was just a bad tackle he has shown remarkable restrain  previously against monaghan in as did Aidan oShea yesterday being dragged along the ground when he was down injured and then getting booked just because he was assaulted in the minutes before that  as he was for most of the game.
I was always a fan of Galway football but they went down hugely in my estimation in the 2 games they have played mayo this year ,
if kernan was still in charge  you'd blame the ulster influence but no the have home grown scumbags as well,

There's no defence for either of the O'Connors yesterday, the outcome wasn't as bad, but Cillian's "challenge" was worse than the Shanahan one some Mayo fans lost their shit about only a week ago (rightly so to be fair). When did some Mayo fans turn into such one eyed whingers?

Galway are going to ship another huge beating in the summer if they continue with the current kick out strategy, you cannot be successful long term relying on such meagre primary possession, the pressure on the defenders to be consistently good in the tackle and on top of the opposition forwards all through is simply too much. Mayo were missing at least half a team yesterday and the result will have no bearing on the May contest, if Mayo secure as much of the ball and have their full team out then Galway will be in bother.

Cillian and Diarmuid O connor have been getting dogs abuse for years and the referees have done nothing to protect them. Johnny Cooper could have ended DOCS career with that 2 legged lunge in 2015 drawn game and McCauley could have brokern COCs neck with a clothes line tackle in the drawn final in 2016.....both were straight red card offenses but yet the referees bottled making the hard calls. Cillian got stamped and punched in the face yesterday and again no action taken by the referee

What a ridiculous post. COC must have scars on his elbows from all the cheap shots he has thrown in the last few years. Have you already forgotten how COC deliberately ran into a Galway player and threw himself to the ground to get the player sent off in the connaght championship this year. (Galway player got a ridiculous black card) or how come you didn't mention Donie Vaughan's closeline in All Ireland final in your bitter rant.

Vaughan got the line, that's why perhaps?

I didn't address Vaughan because we were talking about the O Connors, but you might remember McCarthy took Vaughan out in the replayed final last year with a vicious  shot to the head....straight red all day long.  Next passage of play Tom Parsons required 7 stitches from a headbut from an anointed Saint on a he Dublin team

Brilliant. Thatíll definitely lull them into a false sense of security for the summer.

Mayo by six in that one, Iím afraid.

Doc challenge was much more deliberate than coc and for me that makes it the least acceptable of the two. Coc didnít raise his arm above the horizontal, to me he didnít go out of his way to strike the head of the corner-back. Itís an off the ball challenge and a red but not worth the angst that itís causing so many haters.

Doc knew exactly what he was doing though, in his eyes it was payback and despite being the player whoíll get off more likely in was definitely the more vindictive challenge.
