Hurling Discussion / Re: NHL 2020

Once again we hear calls for Offaly to be restored to their rightful place at the top table. Only for a few storms and an outbreak of mumps they would not have been playing an Antrim team who had nothing to loose. Surprising the Biffos didn't sit on the field after the match.

Dublin and Kerry to share the spoils with maybe an..other thrown in.
The rule changes and restructuring will continue so much to the game of Gaelic football or as some people like to say 'evolved' to something unrecognisable from its former self.

Hurling will continue to build. Some more new Leinster counties will join the top counties.
Dublin will reach an AI hurling final....but not win one.
Cork will win at least one hurling AI

GAA Discussion / Re: Would you be in favour of a second tier?

The Gaaboarders are a strange crew ;D
Then again those in favour have no need to comment as their option won.
It was a very broad question and I don’t think anyone would’ve envisaged what we got.

But “there’s no pleasing some people” is a grand sweeping statement.

Sounds like a brexiteers response to brexit.

According to the poll at the top of the page a majority here wanted a second tier. I haven't seen one positive post since it was announced. Theres no pleasing some people

So he won 5 in a row and thats a first for sure. Kilkenny won 1 then 2 in a row, 4 in a row then another 2 and another 2 and Cody is still there. If here is any argument to be won then Gavin would probably win it.

So the attendance was not great but neither was the game. Are Dubs to blame for that too? All this talk that the c'ship would be great if only dublin weren't so strong is rubbish. IMO Dublin have raised the profile of gaelic football for years to a place it scarcely deserves to be. Shoot them and you shot the golden goose!

Donal Og was a breath of fresh air when started years ago. Can't listen to him now.

Would like to see him make more use of his pen and shove it........

Why is Hawkeye slow, it being a computer? Does someone review it?

TBF the incident today was the first of its kind. Hawkeye is usually to determine a wide or a point. In this case I was shocked to see it also works on another dimension. Well done Hawkeye I say.

Poor enough alright but Galway football not over popular in their own County and an absolute shite of a day to deter a walk up crowd plus of course feckin Salthill to deter any neutrals or soft support.
Pricing wouldn't help either.

You think neutrals would want to go it anyway?

Im a hurling man true. But every game has its faults and no point resting on reputation. Only players with lots of space and time can put the ball over the bar from 100 yards. Seldom you see someone do it under pressure and if you do then its worth the watch like joe canning in 2017. But in order to make things better you correct the known faults first. Like...implement a better hand-pass rule, implement a better spare hand rule,implement the steps rule and implement a standard hurl size. Then tweek again.

So the football was on first and we got analysis of games with teams from all divisions. Spare a though for Kerry and Westmeath hurlers who played one of  the games of the weekend and they didnt even give the score. They are arguably the top teams in hurling's second tier. Take note!
