Coldrick is beyond facrical at this point. Some of the decisions of lack of were a disgrace.

You could maybe understand 1 or 2 but there had to at least a dozen and it was the timing of some of them were obviously there to kill Tyrone momentum.
In rugby Cian O'Sullivan would be facing a ban for his tackle on McGerary but what does he give.... a throw up ... while Tyrone were in the ascendansy. 
Richie Donnelly gets his fingers taken of him while going down for a pick up and then gathers a bouncing ball only to be blown up for an off the ground right in front of the Tyrone posts...

This is all only the half of it of course but these tow in

How is allowed to referee intercounty games is beyond me, besides his actual abyssmal refereeing he is constantly behind the play and struggling for fitness

Should be brought out of the town in a car boot

2 sides of coin though. Colm Cav v lucky twice in first half.

Dubs did their homework. Tyrone's 2 fine successes from the last game, Sludden and R Donnelly, were completely nullified.

Apparently the pitch is only 30m wide

That is true alright. Spectating has evolved. Tyrone's games in Ulster last year were eerie.

Unless it's two average sides with no real tactical nous, say like Roscommon and Armagh - or two excellent sides like Mayo and Dublin last year who can play any way you want - there are less 50/50s or men blindly lumping the ball up the field to a yahoooo from the crowd. That's because of possession football...which makes sense...every ball is crucial. Footballers are smarter, managers are smarter.

If the spectacle is more important, then a rule change is needed to keep that end happy.

Or we could bring in a bit of singing during the lull periods.

What stood out for me last year was how Dublin stretched Tyrone from sideline to sideline, allowing 1 on 1s when they went for it and exposing our defenders' inability to handle that.

It'd be interesting to see how much narrower Healy Park is compared to Croke Park. Need to get the groundsman out and bring in the sidelines a further 5 metres on either side!

It was you!!!

There is such a scrutiny on entertainment now. Football was never attractive bar the odd clinker of a game. Only the top 2/3 sides, when they clashed, produced top quality skilful entertainment. The 80s were shit. The 90s produced some wars of attrition in Ulster but no AI final like the last few now. The 00s again when the top 2/3 met. Same as now.

Yea I accept that idea. But I don't accept it in practice when you're 4 down with the clock hurtling towards time added on. Surely going man to man at that moment is pivotal to preventing keep-ball, or at least trying to.

Nearly sure in the Dublin Tyrone game last year Colm Cavanagh was exasperated at how his own players wouldn't leave their stations when Dublin held the ball around the middle, waving them up to dung out around the middle. Only a handful did.

Prepared to accept I'm out of touch about this.

But, I see nothing wrong with keeping the ball if a) you're skilful enough to do it and b) the opposition won't do something about it albeit risk leaving yourself massively open at the back.

Do you think the Dubs would allow Tyrone to keep ball for the last 5 mins - not a chance. They'll tear into us and attempt to turn the ball over.

Also, not many teams can do what Dublin did on Saturday. But again, they were allowed to do it. If you're 4/5 down with 4/5 left you flood their half or middle third if they attempt to keep possession. Go down fighting. When Tyrone led by 3 in both AI wins v Kerry there was no chance Tyrone could pass the parcel because Kerry were down their throats.

Maybe that's easier said than done.

Both 86m wide I think. Croke 2m longer. Move it til Dungannon.

O'Neill

do you not believe in Tyrone by 4 ?

All depends on what I'm drinking.

Just don't concede a goal in the first 5 mins ffs.
