Hurling Discussion / Re: Hurling Championship 2019

I've been in O'Shea's company once at an event in Downpatrick and he's certainly different to any other coach I've ever listened to.

He's very much motivated by movement, creating space and decision making, not a cone in sight.
He is a really interesting person. It's a pity he didn't win an all Ireland with them when he was manager
he was a bit to loyal to underperforming players
he's probably better as a coach and coming up with solutions or game based training

Which is what you need in any successful team set up, trying to do it all or being very good in one area and lacking in another will eventually catch you out.

The bit in bold needs to be implemented from the start, once kids have an understanding of spacial awareness then game based training has to be employed. But the ball is fine as it is  ;)

Hurling (at the top level ONLY) is going through a golden age at the minute.

Why would you want to try to fix something which is so obviously not broken?

Completely agree. There's damn all wrong with the game and it's never been more popular.
is it more popular though? more popular where? on tv?
the hurling clubs of Longford, Wicklow, Roscommon, Offaly might say differently

If we were using GAA football as an example then its far more enjoyable to watch. Even a blind man can see that

Hurling does not need changing! Any player driving a ball through a ruck not knowing where itís going is clueless, it generally lands into the opposing players hands who drives it forward under no pressure!

Iím nearly sure most of this is a wind up ::)

all of the rules seem to be in advantage of the attacking team now

players being let carry the ball for 5-9 steps
throwing of the ball - I thought there has to be a clear striking motion of the hand?
if a forward runs into a defender they are never pulled for charging

Running into a player is not charging, charging into a player is charging, needs to lift both feet and aggressively charge a player. The steps thing needs looked at and the hand pass for sure. Refs have been told for years if you canít see a Ďfoulí technical or otherwise you canít call it on a hunch, the definition has changed on the handpass though, clear striking motion. But hey the game at that level is phenomenal hard to call, unless you are sitting on the armchair and watching in slow mo

Is it not the same weight for both teams? Whether hitting the ball extra distance or not both teams are playing with the same ball and have to get the ball on target. Anyone can hit a ball, hitting it with the wind or against you still have to find the target.

Teams/players evolve as do the equipment thats used in playing the sport, are golfers hitting the ball further than 30 years ago?

Denis Taylor was talking about his playing career and how when starting out if he hit a break of 65 then he was hitting hi average highest break, again the game/players/equipment changes

I didnt see anything negetive in Sundays games to say we need a heavier ball

Was in a pub at a function and the TV was on with no sound (why do they do this in pubs). Was ignoring it the best I could but was delighted to spot the Icelandic band sticking up for human rights. Iceland has a history of doing things correctly. Like with the economic crisis in 2008 - bankers and politicians got jailed, bondholders got burned. Fair play to them.

The Palestinians were not happy at all, they actually gave off about their token gesture.

Is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling Koepka is taking something?

Lessons? What performance enhancers would benefit golfers?

Things not looking good for Waterford. Offaly have been a long way off past glories for at least this decade. Antrim game a big test for them. Should have enough for Kerry. (Although bar 89 the buggers usually beat Antrim by a bit but hopefully not this year)

Iíd say Offaly and Antrim at similar level, was listening to the games on the radio yesterday and the co commentator was an Offaly man, he was fuming

Well if you believe they are motoring along rightly then grand. Outside looking in thatís two defeats in a row, granted Kerry havenít been as good as last season but that match will be tough in Kerry.

It was very funny actually. The Iceland lads looked like they didnít give a feck what score they got. It was like they were only there to produce the Palestine flags.

I hope they had a fast car ready
