It's a good draw as Roscommon are a decent side and if we were to win it certainly will give us a bit of preparation of whats to come from the big hitters, if we lose and most people will say we will then we'll know that we'd be safer away from the Super 8's as we'd have got 3 hammerings. I'd just love it, really love it if we were to win and see Mr McStay's miserable boat race
Will be McStays last match as manager of Roscommon if they lose this game i can imagine.

Very good scoring by Armagh in the last 3 games 3-16,1-19,2-16 so they rossies will need to defend well to win this game.

Well that just won't happen.

Unlike  McGeeney  our cool clean hero smiles from time to time.

If we do lose this there'll be rumblings anyway.

Best draw but probably toughest draw possible for Armagh.

Nobody really knows the level that Armagh are at but i suspect that they are a long way short of top 8 standard. Would hate to get into the Super 8's and get 3 hammerings which is quite possible and it would be hard to recover from such. If they beat Roscommon however they will have earned a place in the last 8.

Roscommon the only team outside of Ulster that Armagh beat until 2002. Is that correct?

In the championship, yes - in the good old days Ulster teams looked for a draw against Connaught opposition as a realistic opportunity to make an AI Final.  Tyrone bt Galway in 86 and 95
Donegal bt Mayo in 92,

Down the exceptions obviously who never feared anyone when they got out of Ulster.  Derry also beat Dublin in the semi in 93. 

Just thinking that Armagh have played Roscommon a lot in the championship.  Qualifiers in 2012, 2014
Semis in 1953, 77, 80

But you can also drive a bus through the Armagh defence, if Roscommon have  one.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

I think a combination of the sun and championship fervor have finally got to you.  Suggest spending the afternoon in a dark room listening to whale noises

It is probably the draw i would have wanted.  The toughest test available before the super 8s. No point going to the next stage if you arent fully prepared.

I'm already there. Just hoping that some hot chick will join me for fun with crayons, colouring in, Jenga and a game of Twister.

As long as we don't go in to the Super 8's with a depleted team (due to injuries) like last year against Tyrone.

Regardless of who wins, the winner will be doing the loser a favour.

The draw I would have wanted also. If we get to the Super 8s, we better have earned it.

Nonsense. The loser will be missing out on three valuable championship games and guaranteed football into August.
