2010’s : “Dublin’s dominance is ruining the game”
2000’s : “Ulster football is ruining the game”
1990’s : “Meath have single handidly saved football”
1970’s & 1980’s : “Kerry’s dominance is ruining football”

It seems in the GAA we need something every decade to rail against and it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel but all things come to an end.

Very disappointing for DOC

Armagh @ 11/4 are definitely worth a few quid for anyone from the orchard County

dropping Higgins is a big call?
id leave hime on but encourage hime to attack more . he seemed to be under order not to drive forward as much as normal in newry . which is probably his best asset

It would be a big call alright but I think he's lost a little of his pace and also, maybe he could do with a wake up call. If we were to go with a sweeper, I'd pick him or McLoughlin for the role

Would like to see us line up like this (assuming Horan isn't going to change tack and suddenly start playing a sweeper or even a semi-sweeper the way McLoughlin used to play)

Clarke
Barrett Harrison EOD
Keegan Plunkett Durcan
AOS DOC
McLoughlin Loftus McDonagh
Moran Coen Carr/Regan

It that the final word, the game can only be moved out of Newbridge against Kildare's wishes if some person with a clip board can find a genuine health and safety issue with the stadium?

Don't think that there's any mention of it having to be a genuine issue

Were the rules on venues not changed after the debacle last year?

Tyrone will have it all to do.

You’re right. The GAA will move matches if they see fit or if it’s a safety issue and patrons are at risk. Basically they make it up as they go along. A bit like the RUCPSNI.

Don’t be surprised if it’s in Croke Park.

Double header with Armagh and Mayo in Croker!


The Gaelic Grounds are surely available

Tough draw for us, Armagh are improving while we look to be waning. They'll fancy their chances of taking down a "big" team here I'd say.

Have we ever played in championship before?

1950 semi final.

We all know what happened after that.

It's ON!!!

Leinster Football Final:  47,027

Ulster Football Final: 28,780

Munster Football Final: 18,265

Not a bad crowd for leinster considering. Although worth noting that kids <5 were likely free into the other two games but not Croker

Hard to believe that munster was the closest of all the provincial finals

At least they’ve shown some qualifier games early on.

Ah shite, thought they'd be on later. Was the mayo game shown?

Some decent scores but not a great game to watch as the result wasn't in doubt from early on
