Pat Spillane feels the GAA should consider removing the possibility of penalties from deciding Championship games later this year and introduce a golden score.

“A fella misses a penalty, an individual has just cost his county the All-Ireland title. I think the fairer system is, yes extra-time, but then golden score, first team to score wins. Collective responsibility in victory, collective responsibility in defeat. To lose an All-Ireland final with a missed penalty? I wouldn’t like to be that player heading back to the county."

Sometimes Spillane is correct.

I’d much prefer “next score wins” myself, but it doesn’t alleviate the situation Spillane is describing. Players are going to regularly miss the target under such conditions, and there will be some dreadful misses, and the ire of spectators will follow.

Added to that it potentially puts the winning and losing in a referees hands. Could you imagine losing an All Ireland to a very soft free or more than likely the ref not wanting to be the deciding factor and not giving a blatant free. Granted this could happen in the last moments of normal time too but in a golden score situation it would be magnified much more

Sure that’s the way it has always been..

I'd say the losers of Tyrone/Donegal and Ros/Mayowestros will be awful excited about turning the clock back to 2000.

Is Eire90 related to Smurfy?
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

This really has to boil down to whether their chances of winning an AI are improved or reduced by straight knockout? As I’m assuming that they’re all title-driven enough to assess that losing in the first round or the semi final doesn’t change the assessment of their season by much.

I’d argue all day and night that the only team who profits from a second bite of the cherry is the best team in the country. It afford them an off day, before resuming the status quo. That’s not Tyrone, Donegal, Mayo or Roscommon.

Plus it's only 2-3 months until start of the 2021 season, so it won't be the same deflation as losing by a point at the height of summer when you know you have have a good team.

I have to agree with Pateen for once....
Once it was decided to go knock out they should have gone with a 32 County draw.
Would have brought a but if fairness to it.
Anyway the die is cast so it's all up to the Covid now.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

For fairness it should have been an open draw. Galway 2 games to get to semi, monaghan 4. Where is fairness in that. Total joke and wouldnt be accepted in any other competitive sport. Problem is the provincial councils have too much say and they don't give one hoot about fairness only ££££'s
