The most bonkers moments in GAA
« on: April 27, 2020, 01:10:11 PM »
Watched MOTDís most bonkers Premier League moments. Most were fairly non-events. Cantonaís Kung fu kick, Di Canio shoving the ref and Bentís beachball goal v Liverpool about the most memorable.

Anyway, it got me thinking about a GAA one.

Meath v Louth 2010 obviously is a big one.
Offaly fans sit down protest on the pitch in 1998 another.
Charlie Redmond getting sent off twice in 1995.

Any others you would include?

The Meath 'goal' V Louth in Leinster Final and the 'schmoozzle' afterwards where the lad tried to shoulder the ref in the back and completely missed then came back for seconds.

Funny if it wasn't so serious!

How Shane enright stayed on the pitch in 2014 replay , laugh you may but I still canít fathom how Cormac loveskerry Reilly could award the penalty for a drag down and not card him , it was bizarre or plain cheating ?
Walk-in down mchale rd , sun out, summers day , game day . Thatís all .

The Biffos sitdown protest in the 1998 semi versus Clare was a bit mad!

Slightly more local but a player walking off the pitch in senior football when their team mates wouldn't pass to them lol.

Yeah Offaly Clare, Cork 83 or whatever year there were no opponents. Meath vs Louth has to be up there.

The Meath Antrim fiasco a couple of years ago, when it finished level but they got the score wrong and presented Meath with the Christy Ring cup.

Then for Meath to have to hand back the cup, and have a re-match.

A simple solution. Something lacking in 2010.

I donít know if it actually got the media attention (disdain) that it deserved. Which kind of shows how common the behaviour had become. But this was meant to be a showpiece game.

Dublin handpassing the ball around in circles for over 5 mins, with their opponents continuing to hold their defensive shape, despite being 5 points down, in one of the first Super 8 clashes vs Donegal. This should have been considered a seminal moment for Gaelic Football, one which should have been met with the end of the Super 8s, and frees being awarded against back passes back into your own half.

Everyone should watch it again. And vomit.

Dublin v Donegal in 2011 and the beginning of the blanket defence in football. Now that was vomit enducing and no one should be forced to watch it again.

 Thank f**k we are finally starting to see the end of it and teams now realise it wont work against the top sides and/or win an All Ireland.

Also back in the 80s Wexford were playing Dublin in the championship in Wexford Park. Stand was full so some dubs took up positions on the roof of the dressing rooms to watch the game. Part of the roof gave way and a few dubs fell through the roof and landed in the middle of the Wexford dressing room during their pre match teamtalk.
