Do they need a diva who will sulk if he doesn't get the ball though?

I think he may get the ball though. Who knows when Gordon will be back, and how long before he tokes himself out of the league. Callaway looks like he is cut from the same cloth. Landry is unproven, although I think he may be good. David Njoku the Tight End was very good in college, but an experienced big target would surely get ball there.

If Galway don't get their early purple patch like they have in most games they could be in trouble
A Limerick win would be great for the game

It would be great for Limerick. I don't see what it would do for the game overall to be honest.

Hope for the rest of the counties and a better spread of champions would be a start..

The 90s were the best decade in hurling. Cork got a couple, Tipp got one, Kilkenny got a couple, but then Offaly, Wexford, Clare hit a great spell and it was very exciting. I think hurling is poised for something similar. I guarantee you there's not one of Cork, Waterford, Tipperary or Clare looking at Limerick and saying we can't beat them. If Limerick can beat Galway, I think you have 7 counties at least who are viable contenders next year.

Hurling:
1982 and 1993 vs Kilkenny. Generous refereeing for both Kilkenny's winning goals. Worse still Kilkenny went on to land the All Ireland.

1995 vs. Klare. Should have been a tap in All Ireland but Offaly's mental block about putting away underdogs was a big factor. If the 'Ghost of Hurling Future' had shown the team the wasteland Offaly hurling was hurtling towards, Klare would have been shown no sympathy that day. Within a couple of years every other county was pissed with Offaly for allowing the Klare genie out of the bottle.

1999 vs. Cork. Epic match, but the sad conclusion was that the better hurlers lost to the faster ones.

Football:
1983 vs Dublin. Having spent 5 years building up to the epic crescendo of winning the 1982 All Ireland, Offaly then let a jammy one pass them by the year after. Kerry were already knocked out by the time Offaly ballsed it up against Dublin,
If you hadn't robbed Limerick in 1994, you would certainly have beaten Clare in 1995. How different the Clare / Ger Loughnane story might have been!

Limerick are lucky Offaly only hurled for 5 minutes in 1994. If they hurled for 70, it would have been a massacre.

Landry is just a nickel and dime possession receiver. Bryant is the sort of big physical wideout any team needs, crazy he hasnít caught on somewhere yet even despite a couple down seasons, heís extremely talented. Heís going to be on his best behaviour wherever he signs and itís not like he could make the Browns any worse than 0-16..

The Browns may need him. Calloway looks good, but he can't get out of his own way off the field. Gordon the same. Landry does look decent so far, and I think he may have been held back in Miami. He had the lowest YPC in the league nearly. But he looks to have pace, so maybe it was a scheme issue. I read something like his average route distance was 3.6 yards or something.

I think Bryant could be useful for them, and as you say ,it's not going to be worse than 0-16. Hue Jackson surely is gone if they go 3-13 or worse, but if they get 5 or 6 wins and see some green shoots, he may get a reprieve. Bryant would surely help them to that mark.

I might be reading too much into it, but I genuinely think if Galway show up on Sunday there could be a big enough score in it at the end.

Too much power and strength, not too mention the confidence that last year has evidently given them.

Thing with Galway is that they are so adaptable, they can go long to the edge of the square when required or they can play Whelan out into space. They can play the short game through the mid field and pick off long range scores from there, or Joe can win it and just run out round people and throw it over.

I would love to see Limerick put it up to them and make a real game of it and hopefully they will.

Limerick also have big men though. I don't think the power and strength will win it for Galway, I think the hurling will. My biggest fear for Limerick is they will hit wides, and Galway will punish them and open up a lead. Limerick won't panic, this is a different Limerick team, but in an All Ireland if you go 9 or 10 points down it's a big, big mountain.

I will assume Limerick don't hit a load of wides, so I have a sneaky suspicion Limerick will win by 3.

Sadly Fermanagh Broncos will be unable to take part this year.

It was always a great league to be in but work means I won't see any of the games this year

Can I fill in here AZ Offaly. I am dying to get back into this contest.

Fire me on your email

1. Hurling is gods game and Jesus would have played for Kilkenny
2. Football is dead
3. Rules changes
4. Bring back mayo
5. Joe brolly

He would in his arse. Jesus had no time for zealots and hard liners. See the way he was caring, gentle, a healer and a teacher. He'd have undoubtedly played for Offaly.

Heíd be smoking fags with Pilkington at half time, and on the beer the Tuesday before championship games.

He would have been a good man to help ease the tension between Cregan and John Troy as well. Blessed are the peace makers.

Yeah only seafoid thinks it is a foregone conclusion. Limerick have a big chance here and they have good depth to finish strong. I wonder will dowling start.

That's an interesting one. Flanagan starting and Dowling coming on is probably a bigger psychological lift than vice versa.

I think if Limerick don't blow up early, and are within 3 or 4 points with 10-15 to go, they will win.

AZ I emailed you earlier that I got an email from Yahoo that I was removed as owner of Antrim89

Log in and see what happened. I removed that extra team, and just updated the owner of Antrim 89 to make sure it was you. So maybe because it was you, and is you again, you might have been removed and added back.

Careful of dodgy PMs Fuzzman.   Free Staters always looking at opportunities to rip off those from Uladh.

1/3 of Uladh is in the Republic. Partitionist.
