It was a bad blow.

Only saw it at the match in real time but it looked accidental, if a little wild, to me.

Best of luck to Stephen Attride in his recovery.

It was completely accidental. Until now no one except you has attributed any blame to the Carlow player so no more of the snide "little wild" insinuations please.

Sorry to hear the fella is as badly injured as reported. I saw it happen from the hill and initially thought he'd done his collar bone. Hope he's ok and that he recovers fully.

From my view of it on the Hogan it looked like the Carlow player lost possession and it turned into a 50/50 chase for the ball.
Stephen could have just put a foot to it to clear it but knew that if he was able to get possession then it would be game over (think we were already in 2 mins of injury time by that stage).
Testament to the bravery of the chap that he was willing to slide in for it knowing he would more than likely get whacked. Shining example of a player putting the team before himself and is a true reflection of what the GAA should be about.
