Did the training match against Leitrim do ye much good, Tomas?? ;D

Much better than last week but I expected it, these are some good footballers and they didn’t suddenly turn into a useless team because of one bad half. Hopefully we can get a second crack at Galway now.

The terrible underage trend continues for Mayo.

The Herrins seem the real deal alright.
Hopefully we can win our 2 remaining games and get another cracking at them in the Final.
Great result for our buicíns tonight and hopefully they've all the dirty diesel out of the system now.
1 Cupeen so far

Not a good result for us, very surprised that no players from tourlestrane and only one from Mary's .  Hopefully that is a good thing for the county..
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.

Does it come down to scoring averages across all games if 3 teams finish level on points?

The default rule for all GAA competitions is that if 2 teams are level on points it's head-to-head, if it's 3 or more then scoring difference (not average) comes into play.

You’ll need to play with 12 men if you want to lose to Mayo.

Stranger things have happened.
I won’t be judging Mayo on tonight’s game in isolation much like you haven’t judged Roscommon on last weeks butchering in isolation.
So you don’t have an answer to the question that was asked then I take it?

Across all 4 games a team plays not just those against the other 2 teams they are tied with is it?

Thats the current table as you can see its currently based on head to head results but if 3 sides finish level on points it will be decided on scoring averages.

With that scoring difference it would want to go badly pear shaped for us not to make the final now regardless.
I think Connacht play Munster this year in quarter finals.

Sure it’s always scoring difference when there’s more than two on the same points. On that topic, if one team happens to have beaten both teams in a three-way tie the head-to-head should still count, but it never does. Had we lost to Cork in the NFL this year there was a possibility that Tipp and Cavan would have got promoted despite us beating both.

Edit: I like how Willie Joe reported on the Mayo minors hammering an under-strength Leitrim side but made no mention of them getting pasted in Kiltoom..

Honestly  your obsession with Mayo is unhealthy.  You'll never enjoy a victory if you carry on . Well done on last night,  Galway and Ros almost there now to take over in the West.  Whether either are good enough to make this count in the senior grade in the years ahead remains to be see. 
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.

It's interesting when you see that Mayo schools have been doing quite well in recent years but it doesn't seem to be translating into underage. Galway hasn't even had a school in the Connacht colleges final since 2013. Our own schools haven't been doing much at all but the schools game doesn't seem to have the importance it once did.
