Well done Ciaran on stepping in and stopping the Antrim SFC reply , for once someone had the brains to consider the mental health of the players, it's not in our games nature that they should end in frees or penalties..

I was at the game and couldn't help but think how cruel of a way it was to try and decide and SFC semi final. Would have been there all night anyway hitting free kicks from 33 yards out dead centre of the goal.. that's bread and butter for anyone who even plus at senior level.
Anyway as it was hitting 11pm it was definitely the right call to make

I don't see why next score wins can't be used in GAA. Restart from the centre at the end of extra time.

Reduce the teams to 13 or even 11 a side if you want it more open and just finish the game.
