5 In A Row That Wasent

(Oldest Posts First)

Watched it back last night if ever a referee kept a team in it it was this match Kerry were cruising referee gave 3 of the softest frees ever seen in last 5 minutes not to mention the push by Seamus Darby which should have been a free out

Kerry players dident ever seem to argue so made it easy for referee

Nowaday's the team with 4 points advantage in last 5 mins. would pass the ball to death to wind down clock not in them days, in fairness Mick O Dwyer was hugely gracious in Offaly's dressing room afterwards and I have never heard Kerry whinge bout frees maybe Offaly did deserve an All Ireland in that era but not on this day.

Fair play to you Clooney, and thanks for the kind words.

The only good thing about that game for us was that it was offaly we lost to, it's hard to begrudge them.
