Antrim / Re: ANTRIM HURLING
« Last post by Jesusjones on Today at 07:48:59 PM »
Its nothing to do with the fact we have won a few minor championships JJ. As you would prob know yourself if you watch as much club hurling as I do when your own club or even a rival club is in the ascendency. Off course there are minors who have came through and a lot more to come that are fantastic hurlers but putting that aside Paul Shields is the best hurler in Ulster when fit and healthy and thankfully at present he is that. Nigel ,Woody, Kevin Molloy all super hurlers and have plenty more years left all young men

So its nothing to do with winning minor titles that people think Dunloy are going to dominate at senior its a combination of youth and experience and the countless hours work that's being put into them by 3 men who between them have 30 Antrim championship medals so unlike St Johns and Rossa we are here to stay and you can believe that

Whether it starts on sunday sure we will see but the future of Antrim hurling is green and gold. Every dog has its day and our pups are starting to bark
What were people saying earlier about hooks and bait? Hahaha settle down son.

Home advantage counts in every sport. To think different contravenes every known published article on it. Croke Park is a massive advantage to Dublin and that shouldn't be even up for debate.
Sure but what % difference does it make? GAA has different fan dynamics to soccer. Maybe they can't be compared.

Also this Dub team looks very like Cody pomp Kilkenny.  Will Kildare be ready for the fall or can we expect more of the battered wife commentary indefinitely?

In soccer it's worth 0.6 of a goal.
In NFL is 2.8 points.
In AFL it's 7 points.
In NBA it's 2.33 points
In Super Rugby it's worth 5 & 10 points if International Travel involved.

So based on the above I would say Croke is worth 2/3 points to Dublin, enough to win 4 All-Irelands by a point...

As for a Kildare being a battered wife, a bit of a crude analogy do you not think? It's not the physical beatings it's the lack of support from outside the province and indeed the narrative that Leinster is sh*t and Meath/Kildare must do better that's probably done more harm as people just ignored the evidence to the contrary until now.
Maybe it is but I would assocate  Kildare fans with insight and the odd whine. Poor Kildare. Woe is Kildare. 
All great teams die eventually. Kildare should be thinking ahead .And Kildare are ahead of the rest of Leinster.

Who is going to change the system?  You need to be organised to do that.

You could look at the hurling experience in  Galway. We got hammered numerous times by Kilkenny. Some of them were dreadful. There were some awful managers as well. Ger Loughnane.
But the people involved never gave up. They broke with the old system in 2011 and went for youth . Could have won the final in 2012 but didn't have the experience. Kept at it. And then Kilkenny imploded. And who was left standing ?


That must be one of the greatest pieces of Rubbish written on this board!

The ultimate seal of approval from someone who'd know.

Someone still hasn't gotten over the flaking, I see. I suppose it's commendable because most Galway supporters have forgotten football and hurling even exist by now.. :'(

Seriously lads just ignore the troll.
Absolute imbecile

Leave Seafoid alone and learn some manners.
Learn some manners is it? 😂😂
Condescending p***k.
Do you actually realise how embarrassing you are on this board?
You talk a great game but I'd wager you wouldn't make a poor junior C team yourself for all your bluster.
Lie down like a good ladeen.

Its ironic that you talk about embarrassment as you post the sort of nonsense that would make a schoolyard bully blush.

Talking tough on the internet never fails to make me laugh - people like you seem to hit some sort of psychotic break when presented with a keyboard because there is literally no way you could function in society acting like you do on here.

GAA Discussion / Re: GAA doing a deal with SkySports
« Last post by Syferus on Today at 07:39:18 PM »
Sky has been a total failure in all but a financial sense. But that seems to be the only thing HQ judges any aspect of the sport on these days.

I don't think the Sky coverage itself has been a failure. I think it's been very good.

TV3 commentators, analysts. If people are so pea-minded that replacing Matt Cooper with a woman makes them salivate then I dunno what to say. McGuiness was good because he can speak well, not because of anything Sky did.

The production quaility never really lived up to the hype here to be perfectly honest, and its attracted feck all GAA supporters let alone outside interest. Whereas RTE highlight negatives, Sky paper over them in a style that illicts eye-rolling in much the same way. As bad as what weve always had.

« Last post by The Golden Years on Today at 07:22:19 PM »
Both of them will start and Johnny should be full back. Our half backs will change I would think

I personally think Johnny should be out the field. Need him more involved in the play. I Would make a lot of changes to last weeks team but then seamus is in charge and he sees what happens at training and knows best.
