Neither has David Clifford to be fair. All big championship games are in Croke PArk for both Kerry and Dublin.

Felt really sorry for two good teams having to play at the side of the ocean today. Salthill is just not suitable for games. Two good teams. The one big reason for the game being poor was the conditions. All for a city like Galway having cship games but every second game in salthill is ruined by the conditions

Dean Rock Free Taking Project - 6 Like(s)
Well done to him. Great idea. Club managers are pulling in thousands a year and not many have issues with it. Always been a big Dean Rock fan. Easily the most under rated player in the country for me.
So many hurling free takers get lauded for big scores in games and more often than not, all are from frees. Yet people state that Rock scores little from play when its not the case. His scores from play is up there with any top Dublin forward, past or present.
Comes across as a real genuine and level headed guy so goo luck to him.

Keegan conceded one goal and should be 2. Liability in full back line as I predicted

Congrats Dublin on 3 in a row!! - 4 Like(s)
It's probably perceived that all the neutrals were shouting for mayo but that's not the case. I'm delighted this dublin team have won 3 in a row. From afar they look to be one of the most humble and downto earth lads to ever win anything. They're a credit to everyone they represent
And they play football the proper way. Well done and enjoy it

It's more than harsh, it's a ridiculous rule. It's a seperate competition and he should be let tog out.
Two yellows is no suspension and yet a red in a seperate competition warrants a suspension. Madness.

The perception of the dubs is still that they're arrogant.
But the reason I'm such a fan of them is because they are anything but! You rarely see these lads in the media unlike other less successful counties who can't get on the radio or tv enough.
The likes of mannion, rock, mcmanamon, Fenton, o'callaghan, etc. are brilliant players but they're team players who carry themselves exceptionally well from what I can see.
It's about time neutrals stopped the begrudgery and appreciate what a great team -and men outside of football - that they are. They won't be winning forever.

It mad to suggest it was his decision that Ryan presented Gleeson with the award. I'd say theres a very high chance he wouldnt have known whos name was in the envelope and even RTE may not have known and they may have assumed it was a Tipp player.
Very harsh assessment on a man who has been the face of the GAA for decades. You'd never even know he was a Galway man with the way he presented when Galway were playing. Top class and sad to see him being forced to retire.

I'll comment on the match tomorrow but I'd like to see Hoganstand having a separate Hurling forum or something like that as they threads disappear to regularly off the page because there is so much more of an interest in football talk

100% spot on. It hurt me for years to say anything good about KK but in fairness Eoin Murphy's performances added up to be the greatest performances in a year for an goalkeeper. I'd have no hesitation of giving him the All Star either and I don't care how early KK were knocked out

Gleeson never got near the ball. A player with the quality he has doesn't miss a ball by that much. It was a silly pull and he really has to start learning soon.

Kildare V Meath - 3 Like(s)
You don't win too many championship games with only really one top player. As I said last week. If Kildare hold Reilly they'll win pulling up. Meath just don't have the quality of players they need to compete at the top level. You can go through the whole team from goalkeeper up and none of these lads with the exception of Reilly would get on any of them old Meath panels. They still seem to have serious issues with physical fitness. Can't see them going places in the qualifiers to be honest. What's gone wrong with club level and underage in Meath?
