In true reality TV fashion, a public vote on who they think are deserving winners. Participating counties can't vote.
After all, everyone on the message board is right, so the public would also be right  ;) ;) ;) ;D

Nothing wrong with penalties in my mind.
I also dont mind that matches need to have a winner on the day.

I do agree though that I think cards should carry over. Extra time is an extension of the full game so I dont understand why cards don't already follow through.

What about instead of penalties, the team with the least number of cards and/or the team that committed the least amount of fouls? Would address any discipline issues? Referee could take some flak in this scenario though.

At club level I would end up in the boot of some car after the match!!
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

I’d propose a Squid Game Green light/Red Light game from one end line to the other. Keep going until last man standing. And sure feck it, up to all Ireland final use a paintball gun but for final it should be live ammunition.

if a weaker team manage to take the games to penalty and upset a big fave would their be much complaning example if somehow cork took dublin to pens and won would they be talking about the penalty's or the upset

Some of the rhetoric after the penalty shootout is ridiculous e.g.
- Penalties are completely alien to Gaelic footballers
- Penalties are borrowed from soccer

Do people not realise there are penalties already in Gaelic football when the ref blows for a foul within the large parallelogram?

There were penalties in Gaelic Football before there were penalties in soccer.
Also, the idea of penalties in soccer came from Ireland.

Try that one again.

I'm not saying refs are biased, but unconsciously things creep in. We see games where the ref is hard on some teams, and some teams couldn't buy a card if they took someone's head off. We can't rely on what a ref did during the match re discipline as more often than not they get some things on the field wrong. I remember the Ulster final 2020, the ref gave Cavan 2 black cards that were never ones in a million years. He nearly affected the result of the game, but luckily didn't. We can't depend on this metric.

With penalties the players are in charge of the outcome.
Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

Exactly. And keepers too. Both teams have a say in each penalty.

Penalties it is.

Everybody knows the craic beforehand.

The GAA has more important things to sort out.
