GAA Discussion / Re: Would you be in favour of a second tier?

Most team sports has leagues that are important and grabs the public and medias interest why the GAA can't do likely I don't know,

Most team sports are professional, where the league format is ultimately how wages are paid. Ireland is too small to sustain professional GAA leagues, along with a club scene.

My point is leagues are important in other team sports be it professional or not and NFL is the best format the GAA have and those at the top should put more time and energy into to making that more important than ever changing the championship to see what will work.

Green fields of France is about a fallen solider William McBride from Armagh. Town I Loved So well one of my favourites on that list and sang probably best by Paddy Reilly.

Most team sports has leagues that are important and grabs the public and medias interest why the GAA can't do likely I don't know, the league is also meant to be the main competition where "weaker" teams develop and improve.  Championship use to be an old fashion out knock competition but with all the chopping and changing of recent years you now have the introduction of a back door taking the edge off provincial championship games and the daftness of group stage for the last eight that more less stopped one of the best things about any competition which is the story of the underdog.

GAA Discussion / Re: The Sunday Game

BBC's deferred coverage of Down v Armagh was good. The post match on-pitch chat between Oisin, Mark and Marty was entertaining.
 The commentator's gaffes during the game just add to the enjoyment. McHugh? what can you say?  he's unique, the lack of coordination between thought, language, expression and time, is endearing.

Despite the sunday game going into extra time, BBC still rendered a full highlights edition of the Cavan Monaghan game.

If RTE matched the coverage of BBC they wouldn't get half the criticism they get and give me Mr McHugh over Joe attention seeking Brolly any day.

A rare Ulster championship win for Armagh under McGeeney.  Had to win that game twice and still only fell over the line. Old fashion route one tactics worked a treat in the 2nd half of extra time. Cavan will be the hot favourites for the semi final but will they be able to handle that favourites tag well?

Poor by Armagh unable to seal the deal when 1-13 to 1-8 ahead.  Down have all the momentum for extra time now.
Criminal game management there.
Absolutely and lack of leaders on the field also. Outscored 1-5 to 0-1 since the 66th minute.

Down 1 point ahead that goal on 22 minutes the difference so far. Armagh will need to step it up 2nd half.

Great half by Cavan they look so well organised under Graham, Monaghan starting to panic already going by their wayward shooting in that half.

Cavan couldn't have asked for a better start.

Biggest Fa Cup win since 1903 Bury 6–0 Derby County. A Pity Wolves didn't make the final, I don't think they have folded as easily as Watford did this evening.
