GAA Discussion / Re: So what do ye think of the black card rule now?

Statistically it's been a great success.

http://www.irishtimes.com/sport/gaelic-games/gaa-claim-statistics-prove-success-of-black-card-1.1949901

Here is proof that 1 = 0:

x = y.
Then x2 = xy.
Subtract the same thing from both sides:
x2 - y2 = xy - y2.
Dividing by (x-y), obtain
x + y = y.
Since x = y, we see that
2 y = y.
Thus 2 = 1, since we started with y nonzero.
Subtracting 1 from both sides,
1 = 0.

After 17509 posts your beginning to make sense.

It's working lads.1 or 2 incidents high profile as they were won't change that.
Conor McManus s an interview in today's examiner slating it yet backing it.
 Bizarre you might say but Ulster will oppose anything.
The media non-ending fixation with it is comical at this stage.

What is working exactly? We had a few high scoring games on the opening weekends of the league that are probably pushing the figures up when players were afraid to tackle. And that is only looking at its application at senior inter county level, any of the club games I've been to the correct application of the rules has been ignored. The media pretty much avoided talking about it over the summer and now the stats have been put up there are a few journalists filling a few column inches with it because there is nothing else going on, even though it has been the elephant in the room everyone has been ignoring all summer until someone decided now would be a good time to put a nice spin on things! Clowns.

By the way I'm not from Ulster.

Ah your close enough.

Ros Intermediate final this Sunday Tulsk v Croans.Would fancy Croans to nick it in a tight game and preceded by the Junior final Michael Glaveys should squeeze home against Shannon Gaels despite their best efforts at impersonating Ardnaree.

Best of luck to Achill in the Junior, and indeed to the other Mayo clubs that will be representing the county. I think Hollymount-Carramore will win the Intermediate and may be hard stopped. Very hard to call the Senior final at this stage.

Tell us farr are they as good as Kiltane were last year?Presume they will be favourites v Ballyhaunis?
Will keep Connelly occupied if they win Connacht.

Thanks lads.Interesting draws.Hard to see Brigids being bet being honest.
Roscommon won't trouble the intermediate championship but Michael Glaveys could give the junior a rattle depending on the strength of the islands from Galway/Mayo.

A lot of pressure on now in the derby game but fear not. Everton always seem to fill their togs in Anfield.
Sturridge apparently will be back which will be welcome.

Not exactly a man for the trenches.

I think theres a rule that drawn matches can't go to extra time & must go to a replay, unless the game is a replay.

Any game up to quarters can have extra time.

Yiz are great lads up in Cyaaaavan for them rules so yiz are.

Some nerve?Lol he must take one a game now on average.
Deserved win but no doubt Liverpool are on the slide this season.
Had your big chance last year lads and I think you know it.

Saying a player has no pace is hardly an insult.I'm not the one crying on here.
However I do accept these are sensitive times in Rhubarbland.

"But those kind of comments don't bother me."

Says the man who comes up with a staunch defence to said comments.
Good man James u keep telling urself that u might even believe it.
Unbelievable cheap shot at county board,surely as manager the last thing he needed that wk was his chairman publicly havin a pop at the uachtaran whether he was entitled to or not.

Really? The last thing he needed??

Of all of the things that could possibly go wrong over a week, you think the last thing he needed was the Chairman of the CB to criticise An t-Uachtarán for his daft insulting of everyone in Mayo?

What would be second last?
An outbreak of Ebola in Ballintubber taking out Cillian & Alan?
3rd last - the O'Sé brothers join Sydney Swans and leave immediately?


Now ur just being silly.
U need pace for the AFL something lacking in the 2 thick bucks from Breaffy.
