Very good match for McKenna cup even if McQuillan was infuriating as usual.

Good hardy contest indeed. McQuillan is impossible to read

Why was the penalty given?

Apparently touched the ball in the ground, thought it hopped into his hands tbh. Some block by McCann before it

GAA will never get a meaningful change in the way it panders to vested interests. Football as a spectacle will continue to die a slow ugly death.


Biggest winners of handpass defeat;

Teams that play and teach negative Gaelic football, I.e donít kick the ball
Managers like Declan Bonner etc, who could not even try it out for more than a few BS games
Tha FAI
The IRFU
Anyone who dislikes Gaelic Football

Biggest losers;

Supporters,

A conservative estimate would be 98% of supporters wanted the 3 handpass rule binned

Supervalu doing the advanced tix at a reduced price? I see theyre still down on the GAA.ie website as a sponsor but nothing re tickets

I'd have thought it's the same as the midfield one - Ref blows for the mark but player can stop or go??

does the catcher have the 4 steps without being tackled advantage if they decide to lay on immediately? Would be quite the advantage in the scoring zone

Anyone able to advise.  Going to Disneyland, flight home on Friday at 6pm.  Was hoping to go to the Eiffel tower on Friday, is it handy to get to via train from Disneyland and is there anywhere that luggage could be stored?

We done something similar a dozen odd years ago nrico, though we stored our luggage at one of the Disney hotels nex to the Village The train station is right next to the Disney Village. We took an early train in to Paris - 45 odd minutes I think. Dandered to the river and took one of those Batobus (?) boats and got off at the Eiffil tower. There's prob quicker ways to the EF but the boat was a nice way to travel

For me C McKaigue is one of the best CHB's in the game. I'd have him at 6 with McGill / McKindless flanking. Rodgers at 3 though Mulholland has barely put a foot wrong at 3 to date.

This thread definitely confirms the maxim opinions are like a**holes, everyone's got one (and each 1 is different). 

I might as well add if we want to stop 'blanket defences' then I think we should have 1 explicit rule I.e. there has to be 3/4 players stay in own 1/2. Any 4 and the 4 can change. If the ref sees team has more than 11 players back give a 21 metre free.  Other team has to keep 3/4 players in defense as well to ensure they don't overrun the opposition who can't get numbers back to defend.

Our poor old refs are struggling with the 1-2-3 handpass fiasco, never mind 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11..ball gets hoofed up the pitch, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12 *whistle*. 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11.......

Between IPTV and terrestrial we're looking good. Hopefully BBC get the finger out re the Ulster Championship and show all the matches live except Tyrone v Derry  ;D
