The advantage rule should never be used unless there's a goal chance or it's coming out of defense. A scoreable free is the biggest advantage ye can get.
At one stage Connolly had men hanging off him begging for a free but was let go because he held onto the ball. He put it over the bar despite wanting the free

Ref was poor overall and made some calls which weren't just marginal.

Dublin's free before half time after kilkenny ran into his own man was an extremely harsh free and 9 out of ten refs wouldn't give it.
He bottled the penalty call no foul occurred outside the square it happened inside.he made no hand signal to say he was giving advantage thus suggesting no foul had been committed in the first place outside the square.
Free against fitzsimons was harsh IMO didn't matter in the end but i would find it hard to believe most refs would give it.
There was series of play where the ball was fouled four times (two a piece) in the second half within a forty second spell including a mayo player handling the ball clearly on the ground and a Dublin player throwing the ball and none were pulled.
Vaughan was red card all day long when you lead with the shoulder and you come within the region of a players head which he did its a red card.
Pure insanity on Vaughans part.

He caught him with the inside of his arm.

Vaughans? Ah no, I have to disagree. It was a red. Running in like that, arm up, and hit a lad across the shoulder/neck/jaw area. You're asking for it.

Yeah Vaughan gambled and lost. If Small wasn't picking up a second card I think Vaughan wouldn't have seen red.

I'm not taking any moral high ground - both sides were as bad as each other. A poster claimed it was an act of desperation yet Tony McEntee pocketed the tracker without questions.

What unsubstantiated accusations are these?

I don't get how McEntee lifting the tracker means it wasn't an act of desperation?

It was a yellow card. it was upgraded to red because it was an All Ireland final with the world watching the referee.
if it had have been any other game it would have been yellow.

If the ref give the initial foul advantage then the game was in play. The next foul happened inside the area. It wasn't a case of bringing it back as the advantage didn't materialize, it was another foul. Penalty.

I've never seen somebody throw an object at a lad taking a free before. That's a new one on me.


How can a ref miss it though? If the free was missed it should have been brought forward 13 metres and retaken. It was a daft thing to do as well as very unsporting. Although McQuillan was so bad it seems he missed this as well.
You thought McQuillan had a poor game? Examples?


I don't believe he impacted the result either way but he had a terrible game. Missed the O'Gara incident. Went to Hawkeye twice for two blatantly obvious points because the crowd roared at him. I think both teams had times they should have got frees and times they got soft ones. To me he looked totally lost but considering the pressure he was under with the build up I suppose it's understandable.

Missed a penalty, vaughan was a yellow not a red, give a lot of silly frees.

The sponsors need hawk eye to be used.

TSG panel couldn't help themselves but get digs in at Tyrone. tyrone were not a feature of the weekends events yet every now and then they'd have a wee dig at them.

Tyrone really punch above their weight in the minds of THG panelists.

he was trying to dupe the statisticians

I wouldn't read most of the nonsense posted here by ignorance hate filled fools.

Dublin's toughest match this decade, and still came out on top, all odds stacked against them, the country against them and still did it. Heart and passion with naturally gifted skill that cant be developed. Role models, gentlemen, proper Gaels, good GAA and club men, led by a great General. Greatest team of all time, it wont last forever but will always been in the history books. Setting the standard on and off the pitch how to go about being great.

Hard luck Mayo, highest scoring losing finalists ever, did everything right and unlucky, you lost by 1 to the greatest team ever. Heads up, go again, what else can you do.

When you started with that I thought the rest could only get better. it didn't.

I've never been as confident of a Mayo win in an AI final as I am
now. They have the experience , talent and so many lessons learnt .Dublin are going in undercooked and have yet to be challenged in any match . They are about to get tested tomorrow .  3/1 is a super price and I have laid a tidy sum on them to win. Good luck to Mayo in completing the western double and safe home to all fans .

Dublin undercooked - where have been for the last few years. I think that you're displaying the "irrational exuberance" that we get from some Mayo supporters about this time every year.

COYBIB

It's Poetic Commotion.

I have been following this one for a while. So far they have tested 2 atomic bombs and this is the seventh missile test.
Extremely aggressive behaviour and they look to be on the brink of an attack against South Korea.

Where did they test these atomic bombs?
On page 4 of this thread.

The title of this thread is just another indication of how we repeat what we hear and why intervention will be easier when the time comes.
Without knowing anything and there being no solid information regarding North Korea's intention or capability we accept it's a crisis (a crisis we must end) because it's what some PR guy decided we should call it that.

North Korea Crisis........the North Korea Crisis.......the North Korea Crisis........and so on.

Dublin have been challenged and tested. They passed with flying colours.

The thing that always got me was why they had their studios in Donnybrook, one of the most expensive parts of Dublin, rather that say Ballymun?

It's things like RTE that make it expensive. It would be silly to inflate property prices in Ballymun when you can increase it where you live.
It's also practical as most people in the broadcasting and media industry come from middle and upper class areas.
It would be unreasonable to ask Miriam O'Calaghan or Ryan Tubridy to cross the Liffey.

Id say that Kim Jong thingy is perfectly sane.
Acquiring a nuclear arsenal is a perfectly sensible thing to do in the interest of staving off regime toppling invasions and in the medium term it will give him added diplomatic clout.
The irony of course is that he had protection anyway considering his border with Russia and China but with a thermonuclear device on the head of a ICBM in his weaponry he is causing more than a diplomatic stir which will lead him open to a (ahem) quiet regime change from "within".

I'm seriously suspicious about his speed of attaining all this technology tho. There is obiviously assistance ,just a question of is it orchestrated by China or even Russia to cause instability.

If they (particularly China) want nuke missiles in North Korea they'd just put them there. If they didn't want them there they'd stop any progression towards the North Koreans doing it themselves.
The US were planting missiles in locations around the world in 1962 and Russia were doing the same (funny it's remembered as the Cuban Missile Crisis).
That's 55 years ago.
There's nothing new or preventable here.

Dublin Buy Another Title Shocker!

Who cares if they do a three-in-a-row? Da Dubs are a Croke Park project and every person sitting at the top table should be ashamed of the manner in which this current funding is continued.

Any GAA person worth their salt would not be happy with the way Dublin are gathering up titles, but then again, we're talking about Cromwell's Cohorts here..........

Also, a (recent?) interview with John Costello stating that Dublin funding will not be reduced in the future. So the Dublin CB are dictating terms to CP?

They could end the year with a Leinster to their name
