GAA Discussion / Re: Joe Brolly

Personally I couldn't stand Brolly on the Sunday Game. He made it extremely difficult for other pundits to have their say, constantly cutting across them and interrupting the presenters as well. It made for very uncomfortable viewing. That's before you get into his bizarre spiteful rants against mcgeeney, Cavanagh, gough's red card decision and many others. RTE is better for his absence.

The likes of today's off the ball is fine where he can just talk away on his own without anyone challenging his nonsense.

If you want to discuss the FBD final then belt away. Nobody is stopping you.

Much improved in the league certainly, went from just about staying up to winning the league. Championship from 3rd round exit to semi final appearance a improvement also but was some of performances a big improvement? For example at home to Armagh was not a lot different than the performance v kildare in 2018. Long stages of the Meath game in Croke Park wasn't great either. I'm thinking Mayo will need to win Connacht this summer to reach the semi final again as if they don't they could find themselves in the same super 8 group as Dublin, Kerry.

Mayo didn't play that well in every championship game last year but still beat 3 if this year's division 1 teams. That's no worse than 2016 and 2017 tbh (remember Fermanagh and Derry!), when they were supposedly in their prime.

Aside from Dublin, every team had 1 or 2 poor performances last year anyway.

I thought the FBD was between Ros and the Herrins as usual!!
Open a Rhubarbology thread if ye need to get things off th'oul chests.

Discussion about all Ireland semi-finals and finals certainly isn't relevant to Roscommon anyway.

Kerry were out of sight after about 15 mins against Mayo, Dublin had their game won in the 37th minute once O’Callaghan scored the goal. Roscommon put Mayo out of Connacht.

In 2018 Galway beat them in Connacht and then Kildare put them out in the qualifiers.

What exactly are people basing Mayo not regressing on? Beating an underperforming Donegal in poor weather at home?

Dublin also had the replayed all Ireland won after 35 minutes, once Murchan got the goal. Mayo were poor throughout 2018, no denying that, but were much improved in 2019 across league and championship. That doesn't signal regression IMO.

Donegal went 2 points up against Mayo after 2 minutes last year. That is hardly an underperforming team? They also came into the game in brilliant form after playing Kerry in Croke Park. That game was also played in poor weather although I'm not sure what significance that has?

Whatever about the other Ulster sides, the Donegal situation isn't comparable to Mayo and Galway who haven't played a game this year. Donegal just played mid week and probably don't want to flog those players again and risk injury.

This weekend is potentially the only competitive game for Mayo and Galway before the league so almost all non Sigerson players will want to be involved.

Donegal pull out of semi

If they are so short on numbers why didn't they do this again?

There is no U21 team now and the U20s are preparing for championship in a month's time. They probably don't want to be horsed around the place in a senior game and risk injury.

Ryan O'Donoghue and Tommy Conroy are playing Sigerson this weekend so won't be involved. Gary Boylan and Liam Irwin should start assuming both are fit. It will be interesting to see who Horan puts marking Paul Conroy in the Galway full forward line as there's no obvious candidate.

Have Gary O'Donnell and Heaney played much in those positions before?

Actual wording of black card offences.

1. Deliberately pull down an opponent.
2. Deliberately trip an opponent with the hand(s), arm, leg or foot.
3. Deliberately body collide with an opponent after he has played the ball away or for the purpose of taking him out of a movement of play.
4. Threaten or to use abusive or provocative language or gestures to an opponent or a teammate.
5. Remonstrate in an aggressive manner with a Match Official.

I assume that one covers pushing players over off the ball.

Surely by the book though it isn’t a black??

His deliberate actions brought a player down off the ball, the ref was I think consulted by the linesman and gave a black card on his say.

Fair enough. I thought it had to be a trip / pulled down rather than just deliberate.

Unless the rules have changed a push isn't a black card.

I didn't see it but pushing someone to ground off the ball surely counts as a deliberate body collide and therefore is a black card.

Jases we'll be hearing some whinging from Mickey Harte now ::)

At least we won't have to listen to him moan on rte tv/radio anyway!!

Pretty classy that comment.
Good for you for taking offence on his behalf.

Especially as we all know how his teams teams have conducted themselves with nothing but class all down the years.

Most relevant point though  is why any forward would want to play for a team like Tyrone? If you're McShane you're left in your own up front and the rest of the "forwards" are selected more for their fitness and stamina levels rather than their shooting/finishing skills.

Tyrone weren't particularly defensive at all last year. Their whole game plan was built around kicking the ball into McShane and Donnelly. If they didn't enjoy that system I'd be amazed.

Maybe the mediocrity stems from the players being as snowflaky as their fans.

Keep talking about Dublin, ignore your own mess. That will fix it.

So if people stop talking about Dublin on gaaboard that will solve the current dispute?

That makes even less sense than your comments on county finances.

Another thread about your county bei g a shambles turns into Dublin bashing. How tedious.
"Dublin bashing? I think you'll find most Mayo contributors have been gracious towards our Dublin GAA colleagues.  You, on the other hand,  have made every effort to let your county down by continuing to carry on like an utter tool

Comes on here calling another county chokers and a mediocre team but throws the toys out of the pram when people disagree. Maybe you should head over to reservoir dubs where there's a dedicated thread taking the piss out of Aidan O'Shea and his family. Probably a more appropriate audience.

Yourself and other Dublin posters are quick to start threads on here slating mayo but have no response to the umpteen advantages your own county has. Just cry foul that we're all bitter begrudgers  ::)

“Mediocre team “ ffs what’s the point when you obviously have an axe to grind .
the axe of course being that even though dyblin have won 5 in a row the most Dublin teams will ever achieve is Respect ,
they are unlovable  , with the exception of Jack mcCaffery , boring bunch of clones made in their makers image with a massive inbuilt advantages in terms of money and population  that have done nothing to promote Gaelic football  and and no matter how much they win that is how they will be remembered

And how will Mayo be remembered?
maybe as the best team never to win an all Ireland but with great fondness that played open whole  hearted football even though they had Flaws and it was never quiet enough, well until 2020 anyway
to paraphrase Eamonn Dunphy Dublin's is a 'Strange Kind of  glory '
Or chokers who couldn't run a bath

Just after reading the independent article you posted above and noticed this about Dublin's finances in 2017:

"They also benefited from a €462,000 payment from the National League share, courtesy of the crowds they attracted, taking team-related income well over the €2m mark."

Even though they're using a stadium that was handed to them free of charge!! Meanwhile Mayo repay Croke Park 400k per year for the MacHale Park loan.
