Tyrone not too far away and I feel they played the game too safe for the most part.

On a given day, from here on, they’ve a sniff.

Tyrone gutless so far.

Tyrone need to take them on. Showing too much respect/fear.

Roscommon are bogus.

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.

Correct. People don't know they are born. Football has been better than it ever has been. Some people can't think for themselves and listen to Brolly et al.

I thought when I went a bit berserk on the shot clock idea people might have put some thought into new rules, but alas no. Still some crazy stupid ideas floating about on this thread.

Brilliant, just brilliant.

People who are bored out of their minds watching football, are only that way because they’ve no minds of their own.

What a condescending shit you are.

Footballers technically might be on a different level now than in any time in history. That’s called evolution.

Football as a sport needs to evolve in tandem.

The backpass in soccer was outlawed 20 years ago. You still get shite soccer matches, and you always will. But spectators are no longer forced to watch a quarter of the match where every attack culminated in Hansen passing it back to Grobelaar, who then killed the clock. Rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat. It was not a magic pill, but it does make for a better spectacle.
You continue to personally abuse people who disagree with you on this.
You came up with an idea that you (and some others) thought might improve the game as a spectacle.
Other people disagreed with it and explained why.
You took the hump and started calling people names.
That doesn’t make your idea any more valid but it does stop people wanting to engage in the discussion, which while we are on opposite sides of the discussion, we agree the discussion is worthwhile.
Wise up.

They show the games alright.
I’m not sure what you found particularly rough. Ive never had an ounce of trouble in either.

Was looking to see the tyrone game tomorrow in the city centre or am I better going to the errigle to be on the safe side of seeing it.
Might get it in Brennans which is opposite Europa Bus station beside Robinsons. Should be showing it in the Bot as well. The Parador just past the Errigle will definitely be showing it. The Hatfield and the Rose+Crown on the Ormeau Road will be showing it too. Or go up the West and try the Felons or the Rock

If there is horse racing dog racing or Celtic interviews with players or even a China league game on then don't bother going here, plus they are rough as feck!

Go to a Gaa pub, Davitts may show it, Naomh Gall may show it

Aye the Rock, lol. They wouldn’t even know what you were talking about if you asked to get it put on
Both the Felons and The Rock will definitely show it. Neither I would describe as being rough as feck. Definitely not the Felons anyway.

You want to take yourself to Casement Social Club to watch it.

I see in today's paper Tyrone have narrowed the pitch in to try and limit the Dubs attacking wide players :-\
Can’t believe that’s a story. Happens all the time.

Free kicks and sideline kicks cannot go backwards.
No issue with that. Just don’t think it would have much of an impact on the game.

Yeah, a small start.  Makes everyone look forward at least.

So put on the blanket if a free or sideline because you won't have a need to push up on other players.
You’re suggesting this doesn’t happen already. I can’t remember anyone having difficulty playing a free or sideline to someone behind him.

As I say though, this will not help the game one bit and is change for change sake.

Thanks, Dougal. This could come in handy in future World Cups.

Introduce a rule where teams have to have a minimum of players remaining in the oppositions half at all times.
And presumably they must have a minimum number stay in their own half as well?

Or are the corner backs able to run up the field unmarked?

Easily policed? Unsure.

Yes, kicks from the ground really prevent teams retaining possession which is why you never see goalkeepers take short kick outs to men who have made space for themselves.

Seriously, catch a grip of yourself here. There is no need to argue every last f**king point like a drunk **** at a bar stirring for a fight.

A goalkeeper is a specialist ball striker who is very rarely fouled and generally all 14 options are ahead of him

If Aidan O’Shea gets pulled to the ground, he can quickly get up and boot the ball 30 yards over the heads of 5 players for to where Keegan is in space on the other flank.

Roll back 30 years and Jack O’Shea gets pulled down. He spied Spillane on the other flank. Does he put the ball down and try the same approach off the ground? Does he f**k. Of course Spillane can come short and take the pass, but it’s so much easier for Kieran Duff to cut off angles for such a kick as O’Shea’s distance from the ball and body shape determine where the ball is going.

Stop being an argumentative **** for the sake of it.
You’ve lost it.
Good luck with your rule change.

Anyway, I’m not sure the 1990 rule change was due to Cork slapping teams into the ground and how would it have changed that?
