Worst games ever
« on: February 07, 2007, 12:03:33 PM »
Started this thread yesterday but it was lost in the upheaval. Any views:

My own, plus one or two others that I recall:

Mayo v Roscommon 1993
Mayo v Cavan 2005
Limerick v Cork 2006
Limerick v Derry 2004
Derry v Tyrone 2001 AIQF
Derry v Tyrone 2006
Sligo v Down 2006
Fermanagh v Donegal 2003
Mayo v Galway 2005
Derry v Down 1993 (never seen it myself though)

Hurling:
Limerick v Antrim semis 94/96
Cork v Kilkenny AIF 1999
Wexford v Offaly 2006

Others?

The worst game I ever attended was Down v Dublin in the National League think It was in 95 could be wrong . Anyway Ross Carr got a point from a penalty and that was the heap for the day . Shocking performance on an aul dark grey Sunday . :(

Last 2 Connacht finals were nothing to write home about... Last 3 AIFs in Croker where Mayo are concerned, 2 senior and 1 minor were very one sided unfortunately. :'(

"any all Ireland final involving Mayo."

Not true, Cork/Mayo in '89 and the two games in '96 Mayo/Meath had everything!

Worst game - Mayo v Donegal '92. Two hopeless teams trying to let the other win.

Worst game - Mayo v Cork '93. One hopeless teams trying to let the other win.

I was at the 89 final .. a good game indeed.. Well pointed out bunker, Mayo V meath saw them on screen.  Good games alright.  Mayo V kerry 97. 04 / 06.  Absolutely awful.  I believe when its a bad year for football, Kerry win Sam

Yeah realredhandfan, always a bad year when Kerry win. Not from a footbal point of view but from sharing the trophy around side. Still in any sport there is no harm in having someone to measure up to!
