Just a note on last nights show. It said Cooper won 5 AI medals for Kerry. By my counting, it's only 4 as he missed 2014 with injury. Just saying.

SKY needs to be kicked into touch.

Why??

GAA games shouldn't be behind an exclusive pay wall

Judging by the spectacle of games these days, all games should be put behind a pay wall to stop us suffering watching the feckin' thing!

I think football is in a very bad place at the moment.  4  very poor games this weekend from an entertainment point of view.  Dublin just as guilty.  I believe that once you get into your opponents half you canít go back to your own half at all until the ball goes out of play.  I know we have talked about this before but this weekend for me showed that something needs to be done, I turned off the football twice this weekend to watch the hurling and the World Cup and I doubt Iím the only one.  The entertainment is disappearing at the expense of stats, blankets and keep ball.  A very sad state for a once proud and entertaining game.  I donít even know if I will watch the games next week as Iím not enjoying it at all.

I could've wrote the same myself.

Football is pure piss nowadays.

Seems Galway stuffed them. Were they impressive?

Kerry will find it tight now qualifying for a semi spot

That display tonight confirmed to me that Gaelic football is dead as a spectacle.

England join Egypt and Panama as the only teams to lose 3 games in this tournament.

Joke but arise Sir Gareth for beating a crap Sweden. Roy Keane nailed it the English public and media have lost the plot.

Keane called them out after Panama. Saying them eejits on itv panel had England already in the final. He was proved correct.

On another note, Kane must be the worst winner ever of the golden wellyboot.

Oleg Salenko

Only 2 of his were penalties.

Sport can unite but the Orange Order is not a branch of the Armagh supporters club. It is a sectarian organisation whose identity is based on the fact that it isn't Catholic . I was disappointed when I saw the news.

And despite this a southern catholic was greeted warmly at the parade, illustrating the ability of sport to unite.

Would Neil Lennon have been as warmly welcomed?

Probably not, but then he is filming a "documentary outlining how Rugby as a sport unifies the country"

Perhaps someone should film a documentary entitled how the orange order/the twelfth/marching divides society in the North.

BOD's sugar coated documentary will be shown on tv3 or somewhere, and southerners with no idea of the North will think... ach, those Orangemen and their quirky customs. Why don't Catholics just leave them alone. Sure they're a harmless bunch.

The map of parades is very lopsided . Wonder what it will be like in 20 years
And what would King Billy think of it all today.

The unifying aspect of Sport? I bet he struggled to find anything unifying about the Twelfth

England have never given Iceland credit for that win. It's like it's beneath England to admit that they, who created football, lost to a squad of hairy fellas from the Arctic. Iceland were clearly the better team. Workrate, intensity, defending, passing etc. They never allowed England to play.

I think England were more solid psychologically this time. They can build on it.
France are very impressive. It would be amazing if Croatia won. Such a small country.

Maybe so, but Brazil, Germany, Spain, Argentina etc won't all be as bad again in the same tournament. Nor will England get as handy a draw again.

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for Engerland. Let's hope we never have to worry about them ever getting close again.
