Meath knew shortly after the game there was a dispute so if they chose to celebrate then fair enough. Over the 70 mins they were the better side, but didn't score enough to win the game. Had their last gasp free went over instead of wide then we wouldn't be discussing this. The facts are that the game ended level. As much as Meath deserved the win, they didn't win. It's horrible for their players to hold a tainted title for that is what it is. They are not Christy Ring Cup winners, they did not win the game. Extra time should have been played, it wasn't so we go again to decide who are the champions. Sentiment doesn't come into it. At 5.29pm on Saturday, two sets of players lined out expecting a fair game with a fair result. We haven't got that. Let's go again and find out who can win a game of hurling over 70mins plus, we didn't find out on Saturday as it was a draw. As for fellow Antrim people giving it the 'ah let them have it' - where is your pride? I know if shoe was on other foot Meath lads would be going mental and rightly so. fair play, is that too much to ask?

My thoughts as well, seemed over and couldn't understand why didn't use hawkeye, it's what it's there for. But yes, no flag raised. If remember back to 2010, Sludden told his umpire to put the green flag up, that didn't happen yesterday so there was no signal there was a score so you have to take it that it didn't count.
