How about making football attractive to watch and we might get 25% more people going to all  games?

No, have a mini St. Particks day Parade in Croke Park with fireworks. That will get the crowds out. 50K will come! Do the same the next day. Everybody loves the Club finals on St. Patricks day. Everybody wants to be in Croker to see the romance of the AI Club finals.

Do other sports have sideshows? Why can't we just sell the product? Is there no product to sell anymore?

What if you have 9 Senior?

You have an Ulster Style championship then! Joking aside - Same idea, all the way up to at least 12!

18k in Croke Park today!

19,927 is the attendance in Croke Park yesterday!
You must be over the moon.

Not in regards the Club final!
But yes, I am happy as regards the Golden Childs home league game!

Kerry being allowed to enter the club's they do into the all Ireland is a joke. How many genuine, small hard working parishes have been denied a once in a lifetime all Ireland win by clubs that should never have been there in the first place.
How many more years will that farce be allowed continue and the media keep lauding the achievement as if it were honestly earned.
Every county can organise their own club c’ships whatever way they see fit.
Just because other counties might have 16 senior clubs doesn’t make their system automatically  better than Kerry’s.
Some would argue that the fewer teams means higher standards.

I agree. But there should be a rule that if you have only 8 Senior teams. Your Junior Champions enter the Intermediate Championship and your Novice Champions enter the Junior Championship. This years Junior AI Final was a disgrace to let happen!

Tyrone away was always going to be a very tough place to get a result but they are flying at the moment making it even harder, still there's a great chance to get to another league final there and at the outset of the league who would have put money on Galway being in with a shout of that going into the last round?

Certainly not me, they've done really well in the circumstances in fairness to them. Be interesting to see how many or will any of the Corofin boys be togged next weekend, I think Jason Leonard could be a real addition to the panel. He's a real unsung hero of that Corofin team.
Doubtful that any of the Corofin lads will be available for next week, they are entitled to celebrate and given that it's not do or die in terms of staying up I don't know that there's any need to push them to get back for it. That said I would not have expected any of them to feature in the league at all this year and they did so we'll see.
Ian Burke and Liam Silke will start in the summer but Molloy simply has to be given a shot at the 5 jersey, he is absolute quality and I'll be shocked if he's not up to that top inter county standard. I would love to see Daithi Burke in there as well but he'll stick to the small ball unfortunately. Outside of Power who'll be the sub goalie I don't know if there will be anyone else in there, due to their extended club runs the likes of Leonard and Wall don't get the chance to impress in the league that someone else such as Ó Laoí has taken with both hands.

Corofin are an amazing club team, the best I've seen but it's still a big leap from club to county, there's a lot of wild talk about at the minute, I had to listen to someone in CP yesterday who assured all around him that Corofin would beat the county team, with all due respect to that opinion, in a hypothetical game that actually mattered, assuming all played to form, there's not a notion of it.

They would struggle against a Division 4 team. That's not belittling Corofin, that's just giving the context of Club and County.

It's not easy for the GAA to step in as every county sets up their club championships in their own way. Kerry only have 8 senior clubs so their intermediate/junior winners will always have an advantage over Mayo, Galway, Dublin etc. However other counties also have only 8 senior clubs and it's not doing them any good.

With the playing numbers and tradition in Kerry, they should really have 16 senior clubs.

This would disrupt the Kerry Championship which is made up of 8 clubs and 8 Divisional sides.

But did these teams not win the Junior and intermediate Championships in Kerry.  What rule did they break? They produce phenomenal teams at these grades year in year out, proving that Kerry club football is the strongest and best in the country.

Gas reading the Mayo lads warning us not to get too caried away in case we think we're getting ideas about ourselves again.
For me, the main thing is to challenge Dublin to make them start having a few doubts and question themselves. They are so used to scoring a goal and they then just play with swagger. Their fans were getting a bit annoyed with the ref which they're not used to.
Funny watching J. Cantwell picking up Brolly on his choice of words on Morgan.


The league means nothing! And I include the tanking Tyrone got from Mayo in Omagh a few weeks ago.

Have the usual suspect Dubs on the board gotten over their team being dominated by 14 men in Croker yet?

They don't care! Jez, it's a league game in March!

Liverpool’s points (76) is more than they won in the 17/18 season with 7 more games to play.

On course for a 90+ points total.

To be fair Klopp half arsed the end of the Premier League season last year. Liverpool had enough in the bag earlier on, and just did enough to finish 4th. All our eggs were put in the Champions League basket.

Strange that Kerry cannot replicate the success at Senior of their Intermediate and Junior teams on the All Ireland stage?

How come?

Did they not win it as recently as a couple of years ago?

One title in 22 years! Kerry intermediate and Junior Champions win Club All Irelands nearly every year! Surely when they have different clubs at such a high level winning AI's at the lower grades their Senior teams should be unbeatable.  It's a mystery? What's going on?
Their junior and intermediate representatives from kerry aren't actually junior or intermediate clubs?

How could that be? Did they not win their respective titles in Kerry?
