GAA Discussion / Historic GAA Coverage
« on: June 26, 2017, 07:53:47 PM »
Folks, former regular poster here who hasn't been about much in recent times but like the talented footballer who decks off to America and then wants his physio bills paid by the club when he arrives home injured, I'm hoping some of you good people can help me out.

Basically what I'm looking for is someone to point in direction of the best way to access full coverage of historic GAA matches that would have been broadcast live. I'm hoping to establish a sort of a DVD series in our club, essentially to try to get people through the door on a Friday evening.

We kicked off with a showing of us winning an Intermediate Final in the 80s (featuring a young Kieran McGeeney no less!) but sadly it won't be long until I run out of footage of Cullyhanna championship final wins!

We're hoping to show some of the full matches from the Armagh glory years like the 1999 Ulster final, the Kerry games in 2000, the 2002 games and so on.

Does anybody have any idea how we could get copies of the full 70 minutes of these matches? Ideally to download online but DVD would work too. I've found plenty of highlights online but getting full games seems more of a challenge. Grateful for any ideas anybody might have. Thanks in advance for your help.

Really looking forward to tomorrow. It's always a fantastic week's craic. I haven't been over yet but still great to be off work and getting the lads together for a few pints and the best week's racing (and best sustained week's sport) of the year.

Been looking forward to the Champion Hurdle all year. Backed Hurricane Fly at the last three festivals but have deserted him in favour of the The New One. Just think the sands of time have to wilt the champion at some stage and The New One is thoroughly likeable with the Neptune proving a decent trial in recent years.

A form / trends guides I bought threw up an interesting stat about the profits which were to be had by following horses in first time headgear at the last festival. Not enough to be a trend yet but it's an interesting angle. Those handicaps are also so competitive that there's usually one that improves beyond what could be expected so it might be one line of enquiry. I've let it push me in the direction of Art of Logistics albeit that a winning favourite wouldn't necessarily be the strongest evidence.

Agree with DH on the impact of the ground, definitely a big angle for the handicaps with marks affected by weather for most of the season.

My team for war tomorrow is;

Wicklow Brave
Trifolium
Fruity O'Rooney
The New One
Quevega
Shutthefrontdoor
Art of Logistics

Didn't follow through on my own advice but Western Warhouse was in a first time hood there.

Mixed reviews of Our Conor yesterday. Champagne Fever was the one I liked the look of.

Can't have him at all bcarrier. I know the festival form is in the book but he's only had 2 runs, one of which was a defeat which exposed jumping deficiencies  with no race since Christmas. Poor enough favourite in my book.

By the way lads the error message is common until they start streaming then it normally comes on line. For iPad etc. puffin browser seems best. Not the normal half time chat. Think commentators are Tyrone supporters!

I've been accused of a lot of things in my time but a Tyrone supporter is a new one on me.

If you end up going for Galway, I'd recommend Pure Skill.

Lads I'm over in New York for 3 nights at the start of August (thur to sun) then onto Vegas. It will be our wedding anniversary while we are in New York. Any good restaurants u recommend going to? A steakhouse would be good but we love Italian, Chinese, Mexican and Indian as well. Budget of around 250 dollars. We are staying close to Times Square by the way.

Del Frisco's beside the Rockefeller centre.

It's likely I will have two standing tickets for sale, will know for sure this evening.

Any takers? Would prefer to sell the two together first up.

Face value of course.

I'd take one ticket if it was for sale Bingo.

I'd recommend Del Frisco's beside the Rockfeller Centre for a bite to eat. Great spot. Was in NY over New Year, the buzz around Manhattan is simply fantastic.

Any views on Ascot lads? Steamed into the 4/1 on the Animal Kingdom / Dawn Approach double. Mug's stuff I know.

Yes, standard terms were 4 places in the Dash.

How likely is the favourite to stay on breeding? Sea the Stars and Camelot have done the guineas and derby double in recent years but overall the record is patchy enough is it not?

I think the stats are 22 attempts in 40 years with 3 or 4 successful (2 in recent years). Camelot was always seen as more of a derby horse than a guineas speed merchant I believe while the dam side seems to be the stamina weakness for Dawn Approach. Also telling that Bolger hadn't originally entered him in the Derby. Have taken an each way chance with Chopin myself.
