In case of extra time I presume and to make sure all is ready for the 2 pm TV live showing.
And this nonsense if level after extra time

Quote
It is on a pilot basis but the Special U17 Football and Hurling Competitions in 2017 and the new U20 Football Championship in 2018 will require to finish ‘on the day’. 

If teams still can’t be separated after two periods of extra time, it moves to the free-taking competition with five nominated free-takers, chosen from those who have played at some stage in the previous 100 minutes, taking shots from the 65-metre line. 

For the football competitions, frees will be taken from the 45-metre line.  If the teams are still deadlocked after five shots it moves to ‘sudden death’ until there is a winner. 

The first sudden death free is taken by the player who took the first free, and the sudden death element will continue until such time as there is a definite outcome.

There isn’t the same level of drama attached to a penalty shootout because it all hinges on one player - the freetaker. Frees will be taken for points only, with no goalkeeper or defenders facing the free- takers, but the GAA missed a trick there. 

If the goalkeeper was in play, and the free was going a foot or two over the crossbar, stopping the point - which many go alkeepers are well capable off - would have added to the sense of excitement

Kerry bet Cork last night in a game marred by "ugly incidents" and me melees.
I didn't  think the purists would be at that sort of thing.

4 yellow cards, a black card and a red card for Cork, none for Kerry but don't let the facts get in your way.

Were the Corkies fighting with themselves in the tunnel?

Not unknown to happen. I didn't see what happened in the tunnel but you seem to have had a great view of what went on.

Yes because "Ugly half-time tunnel scenes and a mass melee at the final whistle involving players and members of the backroom teams" gives a vivid picture of who the instigators were and whether it was pushing or punching. They couldn't be more vague if they called it a shemozzle.

Why are you getting your back up about this? It's there in black and white.

Saw nothing in black and white where it showed Kerry as the instigators of the tunnel incidents or of any Kerry players guilty of any wrong doing.

Handy win for Mayo today by all accounts. Didn't get into see it in time as I had commitments early in the day.

2-19 to 0-9 was the result.

Well you seem to have came to a conclusion without any knowledge on what actually took place.
