Whether Banty was the right man or not, today's second half tactics, where Monaghan basically tried to see out the game from minute one, were an abomination. Granted, Cavan sat back in the first period of the second half, which was daft too, but Monaghan never tried to kick on at all. You'd wonder if modern managements are overthinking football sometimes.

Connor better than any of them, it's the fact too many voters are too young to remember him. He better that Cooper, Murphy and Maurice, and he be the first forward I pick on any team of any era.

Agree 100%, Matt Connor is the best footballer to have ever played the game.

I understand the differences. They're both f**ked is my point. For the foreseeable future it doesn't matter if you are coming from half a mile up the road or 10,000 miles across the ocean.

Yes it does. You could be bringing the virus in from countries far less successful at containing it and/or bringing it back into countries that had it well contained after the Olympics. The Olympics carries a risk of spreading the virus worldwide again, the championship does not.

If the championship is not possible in some capacity, limit crowd size, not allow over 65's (or some age restriction) or people with underlining conditions (that would be self-regulated), use only certain grounds, like Thurles, Clones, Croke Park etc. where people could only sit in designated seats etc. by 2021 then what can we allow back? How are schools and universities any less risky? What about businesses? Governments can't afford to pay hundreds of thousands of people to not work indefinitely.

I think we'll be back playing sport before the end of this year just not with the same structure as previously.
So it's OK to socially distance supporters but  not the players?

The point I'm making though is if schools and universities are back and not completely online, if a number of businesses are back open like construction, shops, smaller coffee shops and restaurants are open by September/October how would a modified championship be a significantly greater risk of spreading the virus? If the above isn't happening by September/October how do people survive anyway? I just think at some point society will have to balance the risk of the virus with the risk of keeping society totally shut down.

Sport may not be economically essential but it is essential to a functioning society.

Why did the ref bring the free forward? Kilcoo deserved the draw in the end but the ref can't just bring a free forward for nothing and there didn't appear to be any reason to move it up.

Clear mouthing from the corofin player after he blatantly pulled a kilcoo man to the ground. I'm no fan of Kilcoo but to say that only one side ruined that is nonsense.

if it's not obvious after today that the main component in football success is cynicism then people really are blind.

Not sure what can be done but we might seriously have to look at keeping a minimum number of players inside both 45's for all the issues that might entail.

Corofin have been muck especially dealing with an extra man and people can talk about negativity all they want this kicking the ball back 40-50 yards when you have an extra man is the definition of it!

Wouldn't agree with that. Kilcoo had 15 inside their own half a point down with 55 minutes on the clock. Corofin were dead right to keep the ball in that situation.

Far too easy to get yellows in football now. There are far worse tackles in hurling that don't even get frees.
It's called Play acting

There's that too but the ease in which yellows are given out encourages play acting.

Thought the ref was hard on Corofin but that sending off is a joke. Lads shouldn't be getting sent off for those tackles.

Kilcoo showing no ambition whatsoever. Only one team trying to win the game.
Strange take considering Kilcoo have missed half a dozen or so good chances, I'd be more worried about that if I had a dog in the fight.

Corofin have missed two goal chances and dropped a very scoreable free short. As Corofin have won an All Ireland already I started the game hoping Kilcoo would win but would prefer see Corofin win it now.

First 22 minutes Corofin had 1 effort on goal.

Because Kilcoo had 15 men in their own 45.

Hard to blame Kilcoo for going 15 behind the ball given the quality Corofin have.
It makes for a brutal spectacle tho.
Contain contain contain and try and hit them on the break a few times.
The way itís going they probably only need to kick a small number of points to win this.

Kilcoo haven't a bad team themselves. Do they need to get 15 into their own half to be competitive? I know it's an All Ireland final and they're only concern is to try and win it but this is the worst excesses of negativity.
