I won't say anything else on the other things for now as I don't want to piss off the genuine Mayo lads. I shouldn't have mentioned it.

That's my point Seanie, there's a time and a place and this is not either one.  Leave the muckraking to the Rossies....

Sligoman2, what muckraking are the Rossies doing? That's a fairly big generalisation considering when we lose, Eamon O'Hara is quick to polish off a few bus jokes on Twitter. But would never malign all Sligonians if one decides to have a laugh. It's only a game at end of day.

That said, awful of Syferus to call you a Mayoman given that long time readers know you to be a straight up and genuine Sligo man, who even played a bit back in the day.

In fairness Keegan was lousy to do that. Fair play to Rock for keeping his cool, but Keegan went down in my estimation for doing that. To even think of taking the tracker out of it's slot and throwing it at him is fairly desperate.

That's exactly what it was - desperation.

If it wasn't premediated how did McEntee know to squirrel the unit away on the quiet?

Were O'Gara's fingers squirrelled away somewhere on the quiet too?

Yawn with the whataboutery.

Boyle is no choirboy - if O'Gara is found guilty of some offence he should do a spell on the sidelines accordingly.

Those calling Vaughan's running clothes line a yellow card really need to get a grip of themselves.

Whataboutery indeed. I'm not calling anyone choirboys. But you coming on here taking the high moral ground on stuff that takes place on the field is laughable. Or whataboutery if you prefer.

You have history in making up accusations on these pages without backing anything up so it's hard to take you seriously.

I'm not taking any moral high ground - both sides were as bad as each other. A poster claimed it was an act of desperation yet Tony McEntee pocketed the tracker without questions.

What unsubstantiated accusations are these?

What is he supposed to do? Pick up the tracker and head over to the ref and say 'Lee threw this at Dean Rock'?  ::)

I think you know what the accusations were. Stop pretending otherwise.

was there even a free though outside the square is my point?
Contact was minimal until the mayo player was well  inside and then hauled down.
McQuillan gave no indication at that point of an advantage thus suggesting he initially thought there was no free.
It was only when it become blatant that he decided to give a free on the basis he thought the player was fouled outside the square which obviously didn't happen.

The advantage rule should never be used unless there's a goal chance or it's coming out of defense. A scoreable free is the biggest advantage ye can get.
At one stage Connolly had men hanging off him begging for a free but was let go because he held onto the ball. He put it over the bar despite wanting the free

Re the penalty incident ..... here is the rule

"If, during the advantage period, another foul is committed against the team which received the original advantage, then a free kick/puck will be awarded for the "second" foul if it is considered more advantageous than the original"

No matter what way you slice and dice the incident, it should have been a penalty.

Should be a cracker, mainly dry this week bar tomorrow so hopefully the ground will harden up a bit and conditions wont be a talking point....

Hard to call, maybe a year early for Dunloy but if they manage to get over the line then the coneyor belt of talent coming through of the 3 times minor finalists and under 21 champions and the now reaching the final it could be a new begining for Dunloy...

Course Cushendall will be having none of that crap and if they manage to turn over more scores from the possession they had against Loughgiel then they should win, McManus still the big engine in that team and he drives them over the line and they have managed to grind out results, propbably a feeling of unfinished business with the All Ireland run so plenty for both teams to go for!!

You on duty?

Nope? I'll probably watch our kids in the Nipper Quinn final

Noticed a few fixtures for Sunday, bit of a clash for some people who would want to go.

Noticed that myself, some football fixtures too, I'm sure if the clubs could talk to each other then they could arrange a better time?


As for the minor final, Dunloy when they got going were too good for a big Ballycastle side, Ballycastle had chances but goal win games and Dunloys second goal was something else, Dunloy seem to have a great system (im sure on purpose) of having great past hurlers putting in the hard yards with these lads every year, I know how hard it is to bring

I have to praise Glenariffe for their efforts in helping me out with umpires, who did a great job and their efforts at keeping the ground (considering the conditions) in great shape. and the tea and food as usual was great

Some good points there but I've never seen Hawkeye called for where they were clearly points. The first one was in the middle of the goals and the second one was low, beside but clearly inside the post. People round me were roaring that it was wide.....obviously in desperation.

Vaughan was a red surely? That's the first time I've seen someone claim otherwise.

Ref has to call for Hawkeye. Surely he could see himself they were points but he was like a scared rabbit all day. Petrified of making an error.
Ref does not have to call for Hawkeye in that if a mistake is made he is informed in his earpiece that it has happened and the bit on the screen is simply for the audience. In the minor game a ball was waved wide, ref played on and moments later was called back on his earpiece, video shown and point awarded.
I have no great love for McQuillan but am happy that he was even handed on Sunday. There are marginal calls and we all have the benefit of tv replays. He doesn't. I doubt if anyone saw the alleged O Gara eye gouge in real time. The penalty claim for Keegan is a debate as to whither there were two separate fouls, one outside the box that continued inside, or a foul outside the box from which he was given advantage only to be fouled a second time. If Small wasn't being sent off I doubt that Donie would have seen red but That's just my opinion. I thought he missed a few fouls on Mayo forwards, AOS in one instance in the first ten minutes but I remind myself nowadays that I'm not impartial and the two lads seated beside me from non-competing counties were not as exercised,
