GAA Discussion / Re: Donegal v Cork. Croke Park 30/07/16

Not sure off hand, Cork Tipp was good and Tipp Derry was good too. Monaghan and Donegal was pretty good as well. I just thought today's game was just a nothing event, trundling along with no intensity but some great scores as both teams were poor at defending despite everyone getting back.

I just hope football doesn't become a sport that you kick out to the full back line and then run the ball, unimpeded, to the oppositions 45 before probing for a scoring opportunity. If a good game is one determined simply by both teams getting a fair few scores at the end of that process rather than kicking lots of wides then the game is ruined.

God I hope the Dubs win it again.

It's actually really important for the sake of football that Dublin win this year.

This is as far as Mayo will go. Didn't see the game today, but I said it a while back that the last 8 is as far as Mayo will go.

Good man Tony. God forbid you ever open your eyes and see what is going on, your whole world will collapse. Thank god these people no longer run this country and idiots like Tony are less and less. I have a German friend who told me his Grandfather still won't hear a bad word said about Adolf, I immediately thought of you Tony.

Consistently What? they get knocked out most years in the quarter.  Would not have taken a whole heap of improvement for Ballylinan to get by Graigue.  Which is what has happened.  Ballylinan beat Josephs two years ago went mad partying after it, also they had the beating of Emo last year.  They were improved this year, Graigue no great shakes i.e not a massive improvement

Err yeah. Are you saying Tyrone are so far ahead of Mayo, who have played in All Ireland finals and beaten many reigning All Ireland champions, that to suggest some lads just out of U21 might find it difficult to live with them if they bring their A game is nuts? Jesus, apparently you can't suggest the Ulster championship isn't the world's toughest sports competition or that Tyrone aren't wonderful without some lads getting their knickers in a twist.

Here is the twist on this the current  Tyrone side would beat the current Mayo side at their very best and with Tyrone at coming to their  peak v a miss firing mayo side 2 years into decline only one winner Tyrone +6

Systems failure when game "opens up" for us. Westmeath could have won it if they got their frees.

Still don't like our "system" but ironically it could come good against the Ulster shit football that has infested our game.

In other words Tyrone are incapable of "opening up" any game so I'd be confident enough our muck ball will be better than their muck ball!

Judging by the comments on the blog, Mayo had a cat second half.

Certainly didn't write off Ulster football but I'm not sure today answered any doubts I have about the overall quality of the province. Donegal were meant to win this easily according to many here and they just got over the line.
