GAA Discussion / Re: Money, Dublin and the GAA
« on: June 20, 2018, 10:44:54 PM »

It's a Monopoly! They have the Money. They have the infrastructures! They have all their Important games played at home. They are guaranteed a large amounts of fans at their game because all their games are at home. The main media outlets are in Dublin. The main Corporations are in Dublin. They have no debt! They don't need to fund raise. The Super 8 was put in place to give the Dublin Punter more accessible meaningful games. The Super 8 for the bigger squads that can cope with injures, suspensions and fatigue. The GAA openly over support them because they NEED a strong Dublin.

It's great for Dublin GAA. Every level is on a plate. From the full time coaches who are creating this conveyor belt of talent from underage to the players sleeping in their own beds the night before a game to the players having pretend jobs to the supporter getting on a Dart Journey for 15 minutes to get to a match.

Are you saying Dublin County board pays it players? How can others compete with that.

Ah the dubs are professional footballers bulls**t  comes out again. Left out the fact that on average the east coast of Ireland gets more sunshine than the west coast and that's an unfair advantage as well. Some people (especially mayo people it seems) just can't accept the dubs are better footballers. I honestly think mayo people wouldn't know what to do if they won the all Ireland as they would have to stop constantly moaning about the dubs and could no longer play the sympathy card as heroic losers

Better by one point, after Mayo missing a shit load of wides in the first half. Anyway what's done is done - but I'm sick of the narrative that Dublin are 'way better'.

O well.

Hi all, just wondering about where to park near the RDS. Picture This are playing there on Saturday and I was wondering where you could get away towards the Dublin Port Tunnel. Also how much is the toll for the Dublin Port Tunnel? Thanks in advance.

Ros hit 14 wides. If that was Mayo everybody would go to town on the shit forwards. Maybe Ros forwards are not as good as they're supposed to be.

So - This is a summary of RTE, The National Broadcaster's performance yesterday.
1 - Put soccer on HD on RTE1 and a crucial hurling championship match on non HD.
2 - Went to a break for news and a lengthy series of advertisements  at half time during the Connaught final
3 - Blocked the signal from users in the north for The Sunday Game last night.

Not a great performance overall.  No wonder we need SKY.

Sky is the problem here. It was sky who blocked the programme
The hurling was on HD yesterday
Lesson: don’t rely on Sky for your GAA coverage on RTE. If you can, get an aerial and Saorview box or enabled TV. Aerial set up for about £150/200 and there will be no ‘blue screening’ of GAA and champions league
Or Home & Away.
I like Home and Away. Don't diss it.

Galway played fairly shite and won, absolutely dreadful in the first half Walsh aside. Rossies went to pieces when Galway put on a modicum of pressure in the 2nd half.
Compton going off was a pivotal moment for Roscommon, destroyed at midfield afterwards.
The Rossie fans behind the Galway goals chanting "Rory, Rory, Rory" at Lavelle for the entire 1st half are a stain on the nature of good sportsmanship, delighted to see Roscommon beaten if for nothing else than to shut those idiots up.
Brannigan, Comer not in it at all, Flynn excellent for the most part. Shane Walsh was imperious and the standout player by a country mile, no one else on the pitch to touch him.

Heard some chanting like that on and off in the first half alright. I thought it was Galway Galway Galway.

Well done Galway. Turned on the style in 2nd half when chips were down. Roscommon have to improve in the round 4 game.

The World Cup gets RTE2 + HD; Sunday Game RTE 1 + a fuzzy picture, hard to see the sliothar

don't know what you're tuned  to but I'm watching RTE One HD

On Sky channel 161; is there another channel with HD?

Don't know about the North to be honest.

Is Johnny Maugham encumbered with a tool of a father ????
What an idiotic comment to make.Would expect a bit more on this forum than that.
Indeed. Delighted Mayo hammered them when such asshole like comments such as this one was made.
