How was Comer not booked for the cheap shot on the Roscommon goalie?

It was a straight red card in any other sport, pretty late and no mitigating circumstances. The goalie should have undergone an independent HIA as well.

To be fair I think he was 100% going for the ball and the keeper just got there ahead of him. Certainly a booking but I think a straight red would have been pretty harsh.

Na, his fist arrived well after the ball, he knew exactly what he was doing. He was leaving a marker but caught him sweet, was there much difference between that one and Cluxton last week?

Looked like a straight red alright. He somehow avoided any card and then booked moments later. Would have been a very different game if Galway had to play with 14 men.

The one massive difference with Galway this year is squad depth from midfield up (it's not as good in the backs though), Cooke is a great option off the bench, Army made a telling contribution yesterday, Varley has done well in the brief time he has got and there were no minutes at all for Michael Daly. Danny Cummins not even in the 26 yesterday.

Poor old Michael Daly is the forgotten man this year so far. Missed the league with injury and it put him well behind everyone else and hasn't been able to force his way back in so far. Not even getting off the bench yesterday. You'd imagine he'd be perfect to take the number 11 jersey if McHugh were dropped but I'd say it's more likely Army would take his place at this stage.

Not sure if it was a Red or a Yellow, but it was no accident. Ball was well gone.

It's all over for another year so closing the thread.
Good campaign for Galway winning it and beating the 3 next best teams on the way.  Disaster for Sligo, Leitrim at least beat NY which wasn't expected in many quarters.
Poor campaign for us and yesterday esp the 2nd half a major disappointment.
Indeed the last 50 minutes after the first goal we were outscored 14 pts to 1-2.
3 scores in 50 minutes!!!!
Best wishes to all the Connacht teams in the AI series.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....
