Sky usually have it on repeat also

Don't think the ref had a decisive impact on the outcome.
You can't, with the benefit of hindsight, right all the wrongs that affected your side, without also doing the same for the other side.
Yesterday, as bad as the ref was, the poor decisions balanced themselves out over the course of the game.

That's Sunday game standard analysis, i.e. lazy. Bit like when a ref takes the lazy way out and books both players for an incident it is clear that there is only one guilty party.

The ref had a mare and the incidents didn't come close to balancing out.

As myopic an article as I've seen in a long while.

Of course it looks like Monaghan were robbed if the author only cites examples of (alleged) Monaghan injustice.

There were plenty of dodgy calls that Monaghan got (and cards they didn't) that could also have been listed but seem to have been left out.......

There were definitely soft calls - on both sides
There were calls not given, that should have been - on both sides
There were yellow cards given instead of black cards  - on both sides

Overall Tyrone were marginally the better team but it definately could have went either way.

No matter the referee holding his arm up initially - that last play was not a free, not in a million years
Isnt that the issue though. Harte's and Cavanagh's (to name just 2) were, to use your words "not a free, not in a million years". Both resulted in points. One was diving and the other surprised Harte as much as the rest of us. These bad decisions did have an impact on the outcome. There is no getting away from that fact

My point is that all the supposed 'bad' calls against Monaghan were stacked up in the article and none of the 'bad' calls against Tyrone were...both sides benefited from and were also disadvantaged by some poor refereeing....that article made it seem Monaghan alone were hard done by

Two frees given were the difference, one close to half-time and Cavanagh's dive. Seemed all 50/50 went Tyrone's way.

Without a doubt the referee carried Tyrone over the line, a hollow victory. Paddy Power seem to agree ó they have Dublin @ 1/7 and Tyrone @ 11/2.

What utter nonsense. Ref most certainly did not favour Tyrone. Both teams had their chances. Tyrone took (marginally) more.of theirs.

Norf, don't be worrying about what people think of Cathal.
I noticed it last year too that loads of fans are just wanting him to fail so they can say they're first impression on him was right

He has 12 point this year all from play and has improved hugely on last year. He was unlucky with that ball through to him as he had to slow down for it to come into his hands and Mannion did very well to make such a clean tackle.

Cathal seems to believe in himself which is the main thing and I don't think its by chance he's started every game this year.

McShane doing well this year, but from what I saw (didn't see a replay) it looked like he made a complete balls of that chance.  Maybe you are right though, because he is fast enough yet seemed to slow down before being dispossessed.

He made a balls of it from what I could see., although let the first man who has never made a balls of a goal chance step forward .......

He has been playing very well in fits and starts, certainly much better than last year and deserves his place at the minute.

He certainly didn't make a balls of that point v Meath.

Maybe all we have to do is offer him an all-inclusive stay at Ashford castle and we'll have DUP support for a United Ireland.......

When Mourinho  first came to Chelsea..a lot of people thought he was great, with the 'special one' comments and seemingly prepared to take on Ferguson and co at thier own PR / mind games

Everyone seemed to forget the absolute disgrace that was his Porto team in the Europa final v Celtic. A time wasting, diving shower who no more deserved to win that game.

No sympathy for him
Same Porto team that won the CL ?

Yip. They were a very good team but behaved abysmally in the Europa final. All overseen by Mourinho, who seems to forget this when he moans about time wasting and general sh1thousery from opponents

What's the story with Lee Brennan? I'd heard he was flying in training, that was a few weeks ago?

I'd say with him just coming back off a bad hamstring it's more important to have him ready for the Donegal game, rather than take chance v Dublin

When you strip it back (and leaving Coldrick out of it) Tyrone missed 2 easy frees (RoN and Skeet) +  McShane made a total balls of his goal chance  (wtf was he trying to do?) Add this to a lucky enough rebound out for the goal.....I'd say MH will take plenty of positives from the game.
