Cycling is the new golf as the sport of choice for w**kers. Of course, golf is still golf. Both are grand pastimes, but people who take them seriously as sports and get dressed up for them are pure evil.

Who'd you steal that from as I've saw in on facebook a few times this last week?
I know that it's hardly an original thought to say that people who get dressed up for cycling and golf are w**kers. Sad and all as I am, I'm not sad enough to steal posts from Facebook and pass them off as my own on other forums in an attempt to impress people I don't know. You might be spending too much time on Facebook Johnny.

It's not even your original text let alone thought as I've saw the very same quote in verbatim.

Don't try and peddle it as your own  ;)

Free in or play the advantage. Once the ball has been fouled the advantage is over and come back for the original free.

Advantage doesn't mean you can run all day with the ball in your hand.

Not sure how the rule is in hurling but in football, if you foul the ball during the advantage, it's a free against you AFAIK. Stupid rule though, the original free should stand

Within 5 seconds the original free stands if you foul the ball, outside that the advantage is over and normal rules apply. Fouling the ball will result in a free against you.

The non goal Tipp got v the Déise defined the Munster ranking.

How would it?.

Even if they had won,they still wouldn’t have made 3rd place
They would have had 3 points going into yesterday and an incentive to win

Are you really suggesting they didn’t try yesterday,when on all evidence the opposite was the case?
The "goal" was kick in the nuts to them.
If they had a chance to qualify they would have been different.
The year after an all Ireland appearance can often be poor but the round robin changes the dynamic changes somewhat imo.
As it is this is a year to write off for them
They will be back

Are you seriously suggesting they didn’t give 100% yesterday

I was at the game and Cork were under huge pressure bar the last 2 minutes of injury time.

Home advantage and the amount of games you have to play in a row have a huge bearing on results in Munster,which is hugely competitive.

How did Harnedy get away with the steps for the goal?

Can referee's not count to four?
Waterford player slapped him with the hurley across the grip as far as I could see

Advantage doesn't mean you can run all day with the ball in your hand.
Advantage acrues
So if he was slapped by the hurley there was an advantage for that

Never heard of that one before.

So what you're saying is that Harnedy because he was slapped was allowed to overcarry or are you saying the once he was slapped his step count was reset to 0 and allowed to take another 4 steps irrespective of the 3 he'd already taken pre slap???
Don't think either are in the rule book.
the foul would be from where the slap was given
but county referees seem to be giving the players another 4 steps with the ball as an extra advantage
it has happened in a number of games this year during the league and championship

I'm not saying it doesn't happen but its certainly not in the rulebook, but that's never an issue in hurling as the rulebook is seldom adhered to.
Cody and the boys have their own rulebook

If Galway give KK a good schalaking in every sense of the word in the upcoming Leinster final then I can see Eddie Keher being wheeled out to complain about Galways physicality...

KK don't have the physical power they once had and Galway should let them know it as they've been on the receiving end when the shoe was on the other foot.

Neil Francis is actually a superb writer when the mood takes him, which is frequently.

His anecdotes are certainly a lot better than Joe Brolly's, and I imagine they're a lot closer to being true.

He was actually a handy rubby player in his day but seemed to go missing when needed the most or when a few fists were flying.
England always marked his card early.

Hear a rough enough event down the Ards yesterday.. Tut tut!!
And the ref delayed the start of the second half as he left his pencil in the changing room. Amateur hour  ;)

 ::)



It nearly ran out of lead by the end of the game!

In the Ballygalget Column it seems.........  ;)

How the Loughgeil column didn't feature a few reds as well we'll never know.

It was all one way, them ards boys couldn't take the beating..  ;)

We're well used to it at this stage.

Down / Re: Down Club Hurling & Football

The panel of 3-5 does not work as 4 of them are normally on the executive. Go out and find the best possible candidate for the job and stop giving it to the easy option who will be a yes man to the top man.
This has been another depressing season for all our teams
Seniors relagated and hammered by Donegal in the championship
Under 20s just about overcome Antrim and beat by Derry
Under 17s beat Armagh in a dire match and lost to both Tyrone and Monaghan
When are the executives going to sit up and take notice?

If you add the hurlers in to that mix, it really hasn't been a great year for anyone in Down.

Talk of Deegan being given the job at this stage is premature, though it wouldn't surprise me in the least, I'm sure we will get our man. Anyone even bothering to go to Enniskillen on Saturday. I can't see anything but a comfortable win for Cavan.

The hurlers are very young and probably did OK in the CR only to get put out on a one point score difference, but yes your general sentiment is very valid.

We ended up not fielding in the Celtic Challenge as we didn't plan to have an U17 hurling team in the Leinster Minor championship at the same time as have an U16 development team in the Celtic Challenge games like every other "Tier One" county, but in saying that I don't think we have the playing base currently and that needs to be looked at if we're serious about development squads and what they're meant to achieve hurling wise.
There is currently no real forum to thrash these things out in hurling and I'd say the same is probably true in football with the internal cartel calling the shots.

Clare looked good yesterday, but I felt Limerick did a Limerick as well.

If Jake Morris' shot had gone in, instead of hitting the post and Clare scoring a goal from the same rebound, would Clare have been out?

Maybe as they'd have been going into this weekend on 2 and a win over Limerick would have had them on 4, the same as Tipp but with head to heads being used on a two way split Clare would have been out, BUT if Cork had of lost yesterday that would have been three teams on two points and scoring difference would have been used and Tipp would have been toast.

Nip and tuck.

Definitely
And the injury list the Deise had.
Derek should have used a dummy team all through the league
I think there is an all Ireland in that team. Maybe a new manager can get it out of them.

Waterford have an attack second to none if they were let at it so if anyone is going to take over from McGrath can keep the organisational control that McGrath had (Waterford hurlers can be a real wild bunch historically) but get more numbers up the field they'll not fear too many.

Limerick did something yesterday which Duignan correctly pointed out handed the game to Clare.
Coming out for the second half with a wind at their backs only 4 points down they take off Graeme Mulcahy from corner forward and bring on Richie McCarty to fullback to cope with John Conlon, crazy stuff IMO.

Clare were unfortunate to get a man incorrectly sent off as well but with Condon out of the defence left space for the Clare forwards to run onto ball. Limerick by allowing Clare the spare man in defence gave Clare a platform to work the ball up the field and pick out their forwards negating to an extent the spare man who was Mike Casey not having much impact on the ball.
Something for Limerick management to learn in the future as I think they've a few more kicks in them this summer.

Clare are beginning to click and as pointed out were well served by having their break in the middle, ie two games, break and then another two games, Waterford and Tipp had four on the bounce and that took its toll near the end like with Wexford who also run out of steam vrs Kilkenny.
Conlon is a beast for one man and takes some watching as Limerick can attest to yesterday even if they did overdo it, he was panicking them sufficiently to try mad things. Kelly is heavily accused of lacking the effort to match his skills but that wasn't the case yesterday and he'd the last word in the duel with Lynch who has fantastically fast hands in a ruck and a great hurler in the making.
They're a better team than the one that got beat by Cork in the opening day and maybe the confidence is beginning to flow, but I think it's a fragile confidence and Cork might still get the better of them in the next outing.

I’d say The subs are all gone for running in and then a couple of starters. Armagh will have exactly 15
For the Ulster final. They will have to bring in 2nd string lads for subs. With the manager suspended they will have a priest and  a physio on the bench. Armagh men are prepared to do anything to beat Tyrone it has certainly come back to haunt them. I think it’s a shame that the Ulster council have basically destroyed them for this game. Derry by 5?

I think a stand needs to be made when lads on the bench enter the fray and the Ulster Council did the right thing.

Just need consistency.
