Might as well get this thread started. Current odds:

Mayo 1/4
Tipp 7/2
Draw 10/1

Munster SFC -  a 2 County competition. Only issue is which will come first Kerry's 100th or Cork's 50th.
Connacht SFC - 3 Counties competitive now.
Ulster SFC - 3 Counties have shared the last 12 with Tyrone and Donegal dominating.
Leinster- 1 County has won 15 of the last 16.
All Ireland SFC -1 County has won 7 of the last 9 and looking like 8 out of 10.
All getting a bit pointless.
Iíd say the Tipp ladís disagree with you. Also the Ulster championship has been absolutely unreal and competitive for years.

They said during commentary yesterday that Donegal have been in 9 of the last 10 finals, that's some going

I see NI got relegated to NL C last night - while it seems a little ignominious on the face of it, surely that gives them a great chance of qualifying for the WC i.e. by winning League C? Or is that not the way it works?

Very poor but it was a cobbled together team in fairness. Jason Knight MOTM for me

Just one point for anyone who's concerned about the rapid approval of these vaccines - the prevelance of the virus in the community has meant that the trials have hit their target infection numbers much quicker than you would with a vaccine for something that's less prevelant

On a positive note Moderna have released the interim results on their vaccine and it has shown nearly 95% efficacy.  Hopefully the Oxford/AZ vaccine will follow suit soon.

The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are related approaches, both will have around the same efficacy, but both have distribution problems because of the =70C requirement. The Oxford/AZ is a bit different, but would be easier to distribute, the Russian vaccine which is supposed to be also very effective is related to the Oxford approach.

It will be a bit of a challenge getting these things produced and distributed, but it looks like they will provide a real change.

I don't think the moderna vaccine has the same cold storage requirements as the Pfizer vaccine, it's just 2-8C which is pretty standard

I'd have thought Reape might have been called into the panel, might not be a starter this year but it'd help develop him as an option for next year. On the ah ref podcast, they were going on about one of the intermediate keepers, maybe kiltimagh?

Probably the mayo minor keeper from last year. Jennings from Ballinrobe.

Cheers. Would be good to have him and a couple of more young keepers brought in for some kicking sessions

Tbh, I don't think he "deliberately" went outside the field of play, his eyes were on the ball the whole time. It should have been a free for tackling the keeper in the small rectangle though

The free out Hurson gave to Mayo just before all that after Higgins clambered all over the Galway forward was mind boggling though.

What's the story with the advantage rule? We were clear on goal there and Hurson blew for the free at a vital time. I think the decisions balanced up and Galway had a phantom point awarded also.
I wouldnít say they balanced up at all to be honest.
I think ye deserved the win but he was brutal.
What phantom point was that? Genuinely donít remember there being a dubious one?

I canít remember a contentious point either. Was there one?

There was one from Ian Burke in the 2nd half that looked very tight on TV

The one I was referring (I didn't call it a phantom point tbf) to was the Conroy point after a lay off from Burke. Looked tight but the commentators seemed to think it was in so fair enough

Tipp are 4/1 in this, seems like generous odds esp with O'Riordan back

Special word for Sean Kelly there, what a player and unlucky to be caught for the tackle at the end, another two steps and it was a penalty, such are the margins.
 

He was brilliant today, like a young Keith Higgins

Great win but Tipp or Cork won't be too worried after that.

Back in 2015, who'd have thought we'd value a Connacht championship so much

While I was happy to see McLaughlin make that foul, I have to agree with J70 on it
