GAA Discussion / Re: PJ picks his Super 8
« on: April 10, 2018, 06:11:04 PM »
It's not nonsense and no system can, or should, help teams artificially make the later stages of a competition. The super 8's make no difference to Antrim, Offaly, Waterford etc., they won't lose anymore ground to the Dublin's of this world by keeping any other system we've had.

The super 8's isn't the complete solution but it is an improvement on what we have.

Tight game but I thought Ronan's went for it more and therefore deserved to win.

Again a Rice player caught in possession going nowhere. Is it because they are all sitting back and have no options ahead of themselves?

Some awful decisions being made by the Mayo lads who are starting to play as individuals.

Rice already trying to slow the game down which doesn't bode well for them as it appears they don't have the confidence in themselves to win it.

St. Ronan’s are the stronger looking team so far.

Bar a ten minute period in the middle of the half I thought it was very much even, perhaps the Mayo team the better overall. Some very good footballers on both sides to be fair and I'd expect it to go to the last ten minutes. Mind you the way Ronan's are flooding back players in they get a three or four point lead they might be able to shut it down.

I'd be reluctant to introduce a ban on handpassing or limiting it as it could lead to teams just flooding back knowing that at some point a kick will have to be made into the scoring zone.

The problem IMO is the competition structure which isn't encouraging of attacking risky football and if you come up against a blanket then you have to mirror it unless you are much stronger than your opponents.

I think the rules are largely fine, albeit the tackle is very difficult to referee, but it's our approach to the game that's the problem.

Not really. I've no interest in Dublin per say I just respond to the more outlandish anti-Dub stuff on here. If I've a grá for any county outside my own it's yours though I like to see all genuine football counties to do well. Because my own county won't challenge for an All Ireland in my lifetime (unfortunately) I'm not partisan in any way.

Some of the frees awarded to Dublin were ridiculous. Feel the touch of a glove, fall to your knees..free in. Joke.

Ah here Galway got some blatantly soft ones too. Ref wasn't great but hardly favoured Dublin.

Ref clearly favoured Dublin. FFS, Philly should have been sent off after 15 minutes and that’s before him riding Galway for frees. Comer needed to be rugby tackled before he’d get something today.

First time in a long time I find myself in agreement with you. Also johnny cooper gets away with more s hit than any other player for sone reason .

The reason is simple, he's playing all his important games at home in front of a partisan crowd.  Referees are human and crowds at matches affect their decisions, I've seen it first hand in Castlebar for Mayo games. To top it off most of the top referees live and work in Dublin.

Nonsense and good to see the Galway posters aren't falling for it. The ref made poor decisions, the second yellow to Scully being one of them but there's a section of this board that can't take off their anti-Dubs glasses.

He kicked a point over from the sideline and repeatedly left IC players in his wake when soloing - you don't take that guy off when chasing the game.

Why did they take off Walsh when you're chasing the game?

Walsh is a flat track bully.

Don't agree. He's a special talent, albeit he doesn't seem to transfer his talent to productivity all the time. Nevertheless, in a game where you need an outrageous point, goal or pass to get you over the line you keep Walsh on the field IMO.

Kilkenny MOM? Didn't think he was even in the running. Thought Mannion was very good for Dublin.

Ref poor. 2 clear frees for galway there.

I think galway would get hammered man to man to be fair.

You have to go man to man against the Dubs and with a few minutes left and behind you have to go man to man against any team.
