If someone had shown you the kickout & shooting stats after the game you'd have assumed Mayo would have won by at least 5 or 6 points. I can't recall any other championship match in recent years where the team who dominated both stats ended up getting beat, it shouldn't happen.

Its some achievement by Roscommon to win that game considering how dreadful they were on their own kickouts, won that game despite living on scraps. They kicked 7 points from play, 4 of them were fantastic individual efforts including the 3 from Cox. Roscommon's first goal would remind you of the goal Dublin scored against Mayo in the league, Higgins letting the main inside him but the other Mayo defender in the picture been dragged out of position far too easily, think it was Barrett. Brilliant finish by Cregg in fairness. How has Cox not seen more game time for Kerry in recent years, a huge mistake on their part; I know who'd i'd least like to mark out of JOD, BJ Keane & Cox.

We were told Horan has learned from his time out of the game, wasn't much evidence of that on Saturday night.


before people  lose the run of them selves about mayo's defensive frailties Roscommon got 7 points from play (at least 3 would fall into miracle category) to mayo's 14 .
the 2 major factor in mayos loss were the  goals and our weakness from free . had Cillian been playing they would have won well or even if if hennelly  had a have decent game from free they would have won ,#
but they didn't and that's how games are won and lost .
Mayo can take a huge amount from Saturday  Darren coen was excellent Plunket really drove thing towards the end and Ruane conformed he is a inter county player ,
on the down side andy looked a bit slow and we still need a full back,
slagging  off Horan at this point is plain stupid

I think the 'facts'  here the community built a facilty which was in use bu a cocker club and an athlethic club . but as is the way of most soccer clubs  it  eventually became defuct as did the athletic club so the GAA in need of Space took over the lease of the grounds from the  community council , the field is still known as the soccer pitch but is in reality a GAA pitch same as any other GAA pitch  and Subject to the same rules .

I agree with the suggestion that the provincial championships should be  dropped for a trial period of two years.. it would be a sea change for the Fior Gaels who are obsessed with tradition and refuse to accept that times are changing and the GAA needs to adapt in order to survive. After that, the only thing we can be certain about is that there is going to be a load of dissenters no matter what is proposed. Nothing will please everyone or even go close to it but I can't see anything being successful as long as the provincials remain in place.
A lot of people seem to think that the two tier system would be the way to go but the Tommy Murphy tournament never got off the ground  and any such system will just be a variation on that competition.

I don't get why the provincial should be dropped . a provincial final win ia huge thing for nay county apart from maybe Dublin /Kerry , I know most mayo people would love nothing (other than an all Ireland of course) than to beat galway in a connact final this year and the same goes for most ulser counties and the 1st leinster team to beat Dublin in 1o years time or so  will be well pleased wiith their days work ,
winning a random group could never have the same impact and would not attract the same crowds or even interest from players

the problem with all of these formats is every one of them is different . I must gave heard about 30 or 40 different ideas which seem like a no brainer to the proposer but as sure as eggs is eggs as soo as some one hears they will say 'yeah that's good  but What if?'
any new change has to be measurably better than the old system and not be changed for assay 5 years or else it will be tweaked evey year and no one will have a fecking clue what this years rules are

2 men that have gone the other direction are Conor Loftus and Eoin O'Donoughe

I doubt we’ll see Ryan O’Donohue ever in the green and red if rumours are to be believed

oh go on then, give us a hint

apart from croke park which is normally print at home . presenting the season ticket card itself is the normal process

Connacht finals in Castlebar and Salthill are print at homes too. Hyde Park was first come first served basis and tough shit if you're not in ages beforehand.
you could first person into the hyde and you probably be wet cold and have an obstructed view

I never got why any one would want to ruin a good stake by adding the taste of burning wood to it.
are there for people who don't like the taste of meat? may for some thing without much of its own taste like chicken breat but steak that's a sin

I understand all the insurance comments but that is still not the issue here.  Even if they got full insurance the soccer game could still not be played on a gaa club pitch as our outdated rules prohibit it.  Let’s be honest, the reason for the rule was not insurance concerns back then.  The GAA does many positive and good things but situations like this only give gaa haters ammunition to bash the “grab all association” as they so eloquently describe it.

Soccer is not the enemy, outdated rules and rulers are imo...
at this stage its quiet simple . a constituent member of an organization knowingly flouted the rules of the organization.
that cannot go unpunished
statements about charity and soccer etc just confuse the issue

inter county is not meant to be about FUN at least not the happy clappy sense . it give lads a chance to play sport at the highest level and that involves a lot of hard work.
some lads are cut out for it but most don't have the bottle .
its for high achievers and they are few and far between
