All the fecking music pumping does my head in (love cats ffs)

I think its fake as get out and as you say totally alien to real GAA supporters.

Camogs had music too after their game, think Down were something highly original like 'flower of the county Down' whereas Limerick got 'Zombie' by the Cranberries, always loved that wee ditty from Dolores and the crew.
No imagination for the cats. They could have had a 3 minute video of highlights of the last 10 all Irelands or something but what they had was so bland.

the board has officially been taken over with the inane trollish rants of gobeens like Sheehy. Polluted and pretty much not worth it. Pity

What ? Just because I criticized Joe Brolly...? You Derry lads are super sensitive.
Brolly has been "trolling" Kerry for years so he deserves it.

he made some good points on mignolet, but he didnt say anything about what  i was thinking at the time...my first instinct, and this is only from my time as a goalkeeper between P6/P7  :), but what was he doing taking his right arm across his body to try and make the save, if he'd have lifted his left hand instinctively and it being on same side as the direction the ball was going that should have been saved....unless (and this is from my time since late teens when i dislocated my shoulder) he has an injured left shoulder, somethings not right with his form this season

Thought the exact same at the time.

Yep Cargin may well have stumbled last year and indeed they may well stumble again Bannside, but they are back again in another final..........wonder if you were amongst the many who wrote them off more than a few yesrs ago when they were beaten again in a senior final? Cargin are the only threat to the Gall's dominance unless ur vision is a lot better than mine. They do remain the only Country bases side to have claimed a senior football title in a couple of generations, despite opposition both on and off the field........Of course people are keen to pass negative comments, but write them  off at your peril.

Captain in golf seems to be the most bizarrely celebrated and blamed role in sport. I see him as a facilitator, let the players play, and make sure things are in place for them around the actual golf itself. The locker room, the meeting rooms etc. After that, it's like Under 12 C. Make sure everyone gets a game at some stage, and try not to take off your best players. I'd say a lot of people would make a good stab at it.

 ;D That's a great analogy.

There really was no need for this from Cody. It is very Alex Ferguson esque. I hope he gets reprimanded from powers that be. Yes maybe Kelly made a mistake or two but there aren't many better refs about.

So why a Saturday Brendan? Can it be because the little guys aren't very keen on the football?

I have no idea why, but I think its a good time for a final.

Ok, I'll bite, you don't view Canavan, Mc Guigan, Canavagh, Tohill, Scullion, Linden, Murphy, Mc Conville, Mc Hugh as natural footballers?

They MIGHT have been good footballers but it is impossible to tell when they are sacrificed to the system.

Michael Murphy is a great player but he has ended up playing corner back at times ffs. It is ridiculous.

You lads will be thanking us in the years to come because we have , essentially, saved football again. By beating the
system at it's most negative we have now forced Ulster "tae think again" as the song goes. You will have to do more than simply trying to stop the other team playing.

Of course, Ulster may respond by going even more negative. Not sure how that is possible but if anyone can find a more negative way it is Ulster  ::) Hopefully that won't happen  as it will be a tragedy for any decent footballers in the province.

What systems did you disapprove off in the 90s??

The early 90's was more about the very poor standard rather than systems as such. The likes of Brolly , for example, was completely overrated on the basis of a soft All-Ireland.

Yep, the Down, Derry and Donegal teams in the early 90's were pansies.  ::)
Easy all-Irelands in those days. Didn't even have to go through a back door or nothing.

Funnily enough Kerry disappeared in those years.

That's why they were soft All Irelands.

Do try and keep up.
