While I completely agree with the above that we need to move on from the TK stuff as he's had his punishment now (and it's no Galway people here who are calling for his head), the idea that comer was the instigator is wrong and needs to stop.

Morgan, somewhat understandably in the joys of utter celebration, shouldered comer in the back and started mouthing a bit. Comer, who doesn't shy away from much to be fair, shoved back and then comer was surrounded by a few Armagh and then everyone started piling over. That's what happened and saying otherwise is starting a wrongful discussion about a player who still has to go perform in 2 weeks
100% that is exactly what happened. Anyone sitting in that area of the Cusack will say the same.

Wasn't at the game but the camera footage shown on TSG appears to tell a clear & different story. 
Morgan is mouthing something alright.. thou it looks more likely that it is at his own teammate and if it is abuse at someone from Galway then they are a fair bit away. 
Comer deliberately runs over to Morgan, starts his own bit of mouthing and instigates the shoulder dunt which is also clearly not in the back.
At that point Forker & ONeill get involved with Kelly being the next player to get involved.


You've just admitted you weren't at the game! Considering multiple Galway people and an Armagh fan have just explained on the previous page that's not what happened, has it not occurred to you that the camera's may have missed the start of it? The Morgan shoulder into Comer happened about 5-10 seconds before the part you saw when the camera panned over, which was Comer following Morgan to remonstrate. Maybe he shouldve just taken it, but as I said, he's generally not one to shy away either
I was at the game and that was my view of it at the time and itís my view of it having watched the game back. Also this one way narrative that only Morgan was at it all game is ballex of the highest order. Him and Walsh were both going at each other throughout, not long after Morgan got booked Shane Walsh had him pinned to the ground right in front of the linesman (eyes firmly painted on). Morgan was trying to get free for about 6-7 seconds with Walsh doing his best to provoke something. While the blind official eventually alerted the ref, colderick then proceeded to do absolutely f**k all about it  ::)

Iíd say both sides were as guilty as each other for starting the ruckus at full time which was totally harmless bar one incident.

Agree with you on Morgan and Walsh, again both at it same with Comer/Forker/Rafferty etc etc but nothing short of what youíd expect at that level with so much at stake-nothing wrong with it and Iím sure both men will have shaken hands after a great battle. I didnít see the start of their wrestling match during the game and havenít seen a clip of how it started but ones beside me said Walsh was lucky not to get a black card for taking Morgan to the ground.

 He definitely held him down with Morgan trying to get free-trust me not an easy task to do to Morgan lol!

We definitely need to find some way to prevent threats like Morgan being illegally stopped by the likes of Walsh at various stages of a game, it's up to the referees and linesmen to do this and they have been found wanting.
I've seen Walsh get imbroiled time after time with opposition players who obviously are only trying to play the game in a fair and reasonable manner, Shane is clearly the common denominator here so it has to be him targeting the opposition corner backs for I suppose the politest way of calling it would be "treatment".

I hope the officials for the semi final grow a set of balls and stop this reign of targeted terror by Walsh against the marquee defenders we all pay the money for tickets to see. Certainly I think that these defenders have to accept that there are going to attempts to stop them by hook or by crook but its up to the officials to protect them, I sincerely hope this is sorted out for the semi final, we don't want to see Walsh getting away with his antics again.

Walsh could got a black card for that, but Morgan probably not lucky to see the line, blindsiding him before that.

Look we didn't see Rian O'Neill at this nonsense on the other side of the pitch for some reason. I'm sure Morgan accidentally ran into Walsh off the ball, more likely that Walsh somehow felt his presence even though he couldn't see him and deliberately tried to get him in bother with the officials by moving into his path, it's disgusting stuff.
Best to highlight Walsh's antics now before Chrissy McKaigue or god forbid a total innocent like McKinless are Shane's next targets for this off the ball stuff.

Morgan was obviously holding Walsh and wrestled him tot he ground. Unfortunately for him Walsh was too strong and flipped him over and completely pinned him down. Morgan wasnít strong enough to do anything about it. If both had been given yellows for it Morgan wouldíve been off an deservedly so.

Didnít see what Walsh did to start that bit of wrestling on the ground but watch reply of Morgan going into the back of him- not a great view of it but seemed to be absolutely nothing in it, Walsh went down like he was shot.

Bit of pushing and shoving doesnít bother me in the slightest. If it had been Kerry playing Galway and the same thing happened (bar the gouge which Iím not defending) we wouldnít even be talking about it. How many times have Dublin and Mayo had scrapes over the years in the tunnel with nothing said.

Watched the whole thing back this evening. Still great entertainment, even knowing the outcome.

Few things I picked up:

The row was a whole pile of nothing outside of that incident. With hindsight it just seems even more crazy that Armagh engaged in the thing. It totally re-energised a shell-shocked Galway, and they subsequently began E/T much more brightly than Armagh.

Coldrick didn't have a great game. Missed a few fairly obvious things like double hops and throw balls. He was also conned a fair few times by boys going down very easily after (and sometimes before) contact, and by lads doing the old 'pulling the defender down on top of themselves' trick. None of this really seemed to benefit one side over the other, though. Sending off those particular two lad after the row was just bizarre. It's a shame that this will hang over Sean Kelly for a few days (until his inevitable clearance) when he should be able to get his head focussed on a semi-final.

The game in normal time was more even than I thought at the time. Armagh had a very good first 25 mins. Galway then had a slightly better next 25 mins, including nicking a crucial goal. But from about the 50th minute onward Armagh seemed to have stopped the rot. They held Galway scoreless for over 10 minutes, and were slowly eating away at their lead. It was set up to be a tight finish either way. But then the red card on 60 minutes changed the whole dynamic, and Galway made hay in the space vacated by McCabe. I think this wee 5 minute purple patch by Galway after the red card is what gave some (including myself) the impression that Galway were 5/6 points the better side. At 15 v 15 it was pretty even stuff, including through E/T.

Some poor enough misses from Armagh in normal time, especially at some key moments. Galway didn't leave many scores behind in regulation time, although they then hit their fair share of wides in E/T. Armagh also turned down pretty much every one of three or four half goal chances that came their way - perhaps they could have been more brave at times.

Galway have a great spread of talent in their front 8. It'll be very interesting to see how Derry cope with this. Wouldn't be at all surprised if Galway were to do a real number on them.
Doc would listen to any kind of nonsense and change it for you to a kind of wisdom.

In the post match interview Kieran McGeeney posed a question back at a journalist what to you do when someone pushes you ? insinuating that the correct and normal thing to do is to push back, granted its an awful situation for Kieran to be in having to do a post match interview after losing a match, but its caveman stuff pushing someone back because they pushed you. If someone wants to start a fight with you, you do have the option of not engaging with the other person and getting drawn in to a fight. If Kieran matches the video of the melee he will see Tiernan Kelly pushing Sean Kelly who is the bigger man and doesn't push back.

Matching the melee again the way the Armagh subs came in so fast, and were double-teaming up against the Galway players in what seemed a very choreographed way.
