The national broadcaster showing Belgium and Romania while our national sport is behind a paywall. It is a disgrace

That's the stuff for them... They bring it on themselves.. Mayo always bottle it at home as the supporters put huge pressure on their own players.. They will be potcasting the whole thing to death now.. Slagging ye all year and Davy Burke.. Who's laughing tonight?

Great win for da rossies…fair play to them. Looks like my bet is going up in smoke though. My own team Mayo are in huge trouble here.

Replying To letsgetgoing:  "Well of the 53 people who have completed Lockjaws competition so far, 49 have gone for Tyrone, 2 have gone for a draw, but only myself and Dave1988 believe we can do it. Therefore the answer is "YES WE CAN". About to hit and road from Dublin and no doubt will meet several die hard Rossies on the way who never give up supporting their team, even when they have to travel to home games. Best of luck to the team, panel members and management today."
You ye of little faith. What a win and well deserved.

If Vinny wants to continue as manager he should be allowed to. We don't need a circus around the county team. With the integration of ladies game into the gaa. The rumoured management team would paint the county in a bad light.

Replying To ForeverBlue2:  "That term was used at the time but even " puke football " wouldn't cover the sort of rubbish that's been played at present… sure why else do you think nobody is going to matches…?"
Plenty of people going to matches. You be negative if you want. I enjoy both hurling and football. I'll be in Inniskeen tomorrow and I'm watching Tyrone v Roscommon now. Heading to the local to see Mayo and Derry. Great way to pass a weekend.

Replying To Scenicparish:  "Your sum Roscommon supporter. Hang your head in shame. Excellent disiplined display. Well deserved"
I won't feel any shame but delighted to be made look so foolish. Any honest Roscommon supporter never seen that coming. Taking off the Ross tinted glasses Tyrone were very wasteful and Roscommon didn't play all that well after half time but scored some beauties at the right time when our opponents were in full flow

Replying To CiarraiMick:  "True and I just heard Kevin McStay being interviewed.He obviously very disappointed but really gracious in defeat and comes across as a real Gentleman."
That he certainly is. He's a mighty man. He's been a resident of Roscommon for over 30 years now and an honorary Roscommon man at that too. I feel very sorry for Kevin and the Mayo team and supporters this evening. They deserve better but that's how the cookie crumbles. Fair play to Derry. As one Mayo man declared before the match 'Derry are a beaten docket', well it turned out not to be the case. The sign of a good team. They'll give plenty of headaches to whoever draws them in the quarter finals. Here's hoping we can do likewise. Ros Comáin abú

That looooong over due win against our bogey team Tyrone finally achieved today in Healy Park Omagh was no better place to do l. Platform set with a fine 1st half performance where we fully deserved our 6 point lead. Tyrone was always going to come strong 2nd half and we stood strong. Two points winners and hold them to 0-12 on their home patch it's easily done by any team. Well done to all the players and management and roll on All Ireland Quarter final next weekend in Croke Park.

Replying To peiledoir20:  "Mayo have put out the slurry a bit earlier than normal this year."
What a silly pointless comment. I doubt you've ever been involved in such games,as those lads. They'll remember them long after the results are just type. And,people will remember them.

Congrats to Derry on a deserved win. We just don't have enough quality at the minute. GAA teams go in cycles and we are on the wrong spoke at this present time. That said the tactics and game management on our sideline was not at it today and learnt nothing from the Connacht final or Dublin game in how to close a game out. Well done to our neighbours on getting through. It will be very tough for all teams especially Derry after playing ET to get a result next weekend. It's a bonkers championship structure but no point going down that road again.

Replying To festinog:  "No less than we deserve to be fair. The team just isn't clicking, and is plagued by injuries. We haven't lived up to our potential at all this year and our style of play won't win anything. Ponderous attack, and disorganized defense. It'll be curious to see how we preform against a more attack-minded team."
I wouldn't say the defence is disorganised at all. We've conceded very low tallies in this year's championship. Only the one goal which came from a poor kick out. I haven't checked the totals, but I'd say our defensive record is among the best of the 8 teams left. We've been extremely organised at the back and have kept numbers back at all times. It's part of the reason we've struggled to put up bigger scores, as we're not committing as many forward as other teams. I think we're actually fairly well set up to play against teams who will commit more players forward. The lads got the job done in tough circumstances today and we're in the draw on Monday. We'll need a big improvement next weekend, but we're capable of it.

" we haven't gone away you know" That was the quote on the Mayo blog all week.. Building them up because they posed a draw against Dublin operating at 50%. Mayo had their All Ireland last Sunday.. They have gone away now....

Replying To Yellowhelmet:  "A bad day at the office. Even without the sending off I feel clare would have won. If we allow clare to win their own puck out you would expect the backs to be tight with a man back. We got cleaned out with good balls from their half back line into their full forwards. We didn't put any pressure on them. Free men all over the place even before rory was sent off. Disappointing to go out like that. Very flat. In reality if you give the top teams so much time and space on the ball we never going to win. Silly by rory when on a yellow card. Now onto club championship."
In reality we cannot afford to be without players such as Liam Ryan, Oisin Foley, Jacko and even Paudie Foley. We struggled to compete physically. We also needed to run at them and when we started to do that we scored 1-4 without reply. Then came the red card. Watched the game back last night and I see lots of people say the second was a dangerous tackle which is rubbish in my opinion. Given how fussy Johnny is maybe he should have pulled out but it wasn't a big slap down. The clare player made plenty of it. It was Liam Gordon who called it by the looks of it but I'll be amazed if someone gets sent off as easily in any of the remaining games.
