Watched 'GAA Nua' on RTE earlier.
Turns out the Kildare lads wear swimming goggles while they train.
The whole world's gone mad, lads.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

We've always been great innovators.

Those goggles had been leftover from the time Micko had them training in the horse swimming pools up in the Curragh.

What were the kick out stats? Looked like Kildare won about 70% of the kickouts, a hammering is always going to be on the cards with those sort of stats.

We had more possession than them though.
So... there's that.

Was thinking RTE just got that the wrong way round? Sky had it 60-40 in Kildare's favour.

I'd have said exactly the same as Jinxy, so that's OK. (Though I wasn't the match and I'm too depressed to say anything.)
Depressing indeed!

Not sure how Meath could have ended up with more possession than Kildare given the kickout failure and given I can't recall Meath making too many turnovers or kicking as many wides as Kildare.

I'm don't know the stats on Kildare's keeper but thought I heard on Parkinsons podcast that Kildare won 11 of Meath's 21 kickouts.

Short kick outs for Meath from now on although I don't know how much too blame is O'Rourke in nets, his next calamity never seems that far away.

So... there's not even that.

There's the seven All-Irelands though, should be enough to keep you going.
