Many would say Dublin really peaked last year v Tyrone as in that was their best performance for years
Tyrone could get know where near them as they moved the ball so fast from side to side until an opening occurred.
In the final they did not have to perform to that level.


Dublin knew that for a year or two all the media and country were asking is this Tyrone system the one to make the breakthrough with Dublin and they really rose to the challenge.
I'm hoping they fall back a bit this time in their efforts and don't have the same hunger to work so hard.

Tyrone surely will have to give it their all in this game and throw the kitchen sink at them. They know they cannot go into the last game away to Donegal hoping to win there. If we beat the Dubs at all, surely a low points defeat in Donegal will be enough with our high score difference after Roscommon.

There is a chat show on in Sallys at 2pm and then another one in Rue Main Street at 3.30pm if anyone is about.

"Many would say"!! Game over after 3 minutes and beaten by 12 points and you are trying to rewrite history by saying that Tyrone were the team to beat in the eyes of the Dubs last year. You say Dublin didn't have to perform in the final to the same level as they beat Mayo by 1 point. Yeah right.

;D

As much as I’d like to be able to gloat in the glow of a Kerry team eliminated two weeks before the AIQFs being over (these were the lads who were going to put it up to Dublin, remember), a Kerry victory is pretty likely here.

@Baile Brigín 2
I have a party arranged for you house  next Tuesday make sure your out and leave a full fridge
the story is total bollix
soccer Ireland make millions but choose to give it  to people like John Delany and useless t**ts on the pitch and 2 of their clubs  could be out of business in a week or so unless they find another sucker to
leech money off . but the GAA get the laughable title of Grab all association
Sad for Liam Miller and his family  and they are lots of tragedies in all sports  but they  nothing to do with the GAA and the idea of trying to force soccer into GAA grounds using the stick of Charity is reprehensible .

What’s the weather like back in the Stone Age?

I suppose we can't discount it until we see what it's like, but hurling final in August seems a bit like having Christmas Day in November.

Well, Christmas Day is overhyped but it doesn’t come close to the hurling championship for hyperbole.. doesn’t the hurling final have bother selling out most years?

2015 Nicky Rackard Cup Final.
Totally irrelevant question.

And was it shown live this year on National TV?

The only irrelevancy is tiered completions, Tommy Murphy, Christy Ring, McDonagh and Rackard. Standards drop crowds drop interest drops TV drops.

There is a reason why Turkeys don't vote for Christmas.

The standards in those hurling competitions haven't dropped at all. They've improved if anything.


I'd imagine lads would be putting more in when they have a realistic chance of winning a competition.

You’d be imagining wrong.

So, when Roscommon were regularly getting hammered out the gate by Galway in the now defunct Connacht hurling championship they were putting more effort in than what they do now when they've a realistic chance of winning a Nicky Rackard??

What are you basing this on?

Do you know anything all about the state of Roscommon hurling to even utter this thought?

No. Much easier for half eejits to go off on a bit of "Gah" bashing.
Why didn't they kick up over Cork's soccer team not getting the Páirc for their game against a Polish team the other week?
Sure half the Poles in Ireland would have gone to it?

Disgusting. A charity match for a player who died in his 30s with a young family and this is your attempt at drawing equivalence.

Each association has its rules rightly or wrongly, is this just a case of not being in the gift of the GAA to allow this worthy event to take place in PuC as it contravenes the rules as are laid out presently.

This is such an incredibly weak excuse for all the reasons I outlined in my last post.

I think there’s a big question Dublin need to answer this year. Can Dublin win an all Ireland without their key man who they needed to win the game when the shit hit the fan v Mayo. The treatment of Connolly by management has been so questionable I think it has to come back to bite. Diarmuid who has been their best footballer for 7 years. He’s out. It might not be Tyrone best placed to take advantage but perhaps a Galway or Kerry will exploit it better. The game is the poorer withou Connolly and I think the Dubs will be as well. Can Gavin sort this out this year yet?

There are zero questions Dublin need to answer this year, the same as the last four or five years. Connolly was a completely peripheral figure for a few years before he left. The idea that they miss him at all is laughable.

Win a Junior Title and move up to Inter?
Emlyn (or Leitrim's next big name) would get to play a Championship Final in Croke Park.
The (ex) Division 2 team they bet this year was Louth.
They get to play a good or higher placed team every year in Connacht.

If they get to a D4 final they’d get to play in Croke Park before just as tiny a crowd as that hypotethical game. You’re running out of ideas and wriggle room on this one.

Soccer people doing a charity soccer thing in memory of a soccer player  in a soccer pitch.
Fair play to them.
Nothing to do with the GAA.

God, you are a joke.

And those hiding behind ‘rule changes’ as if this problem hasn’t been flagged for years are equally a joke. You can’t pretend it’s an unforeseen situation and you’re simply beholdent to some other organisation with no responsibility for that decision. If there was a will at the top this wouldn’t even be a question.

People like the Cork County Board (aka Frank ‘Job for Life’ Murphy) just don’t give enough of a shît to do something.

That's the punishment you get for you losing in  your Provincial.

The likes of Antrim, Leitrim, Wicklow etc shouldn't be punished for being beaten by teams that are much stronger than them. They should be given more of an opportunity to develop rather than being given 2 games a season. If they are given the chance to develop, who knows, in a few years they could challenge and bring in bigger crowds

Antrim have had 100 years or more to develop. They've a huge population. Giving them more games is not the silver bullet you think it is. Perhaps if they put a bit of work in at youth level and had some sort of plan they might then develop. Giving them more games and them taking huge tankings won't solve underlying fundamental issues that they have.
Leitrim granted are suffocated due to it's size, but barring a huge population surge they will also struggle. Games won't help.

You are right it will no solve it. However, having more than 2 games will be of more benefit to them.

The whole structure needs to change from the league all the way through to the super 8's.

Deck chairs on the fúcking Titanic.

If there are dead rubbers I wonder will there be an appetite for the fans to go? Or just the hardcore supporters.
Those at head office will probably still think things are wonderful regardless and may even bring in a Super 4 for the last 4 with the top two in the group reaching the All Ireland final imagine that..
I hate peeing on anybody’s parade and I'd love to see see some merit in the present series of matches but round robin games don’t fit easily into a championship structure and the Super 8s are no exception.
This weekend Kerry will play Monaghan in Clones. How many Kerry fans will make the long trek northwards? I can’t see hordes of Donegal fans converging on the Hyde either and I feel that most Roscommon supporters will be afraid to turn up and pay good money to see their hopes annihilated. No insult intended to the Rossies here but it will be the shock of the century if they manage to beat a team that has to win to stay in the race for Sam.
Kildare and Galway may get a fair crowd but that’s relative since the ground isn’t up to intercounty standard and a sell out crowd will mean less than 10,000.
I know I'm  nitpicking here but the issues I am talking about should have been obvious to all before a ball was thrown in in any game.

Go back to your armchair psychoanalysis of posters and leave the football talk to the counties still in the championship.

Do you think roscommon are actually still in the championship???

:o

This wasn’t as much of a zinger as you clearly thought it was in your head.
