For along time Ulster football has been knocked continuously by certain sections of the media

Yesterday we witnessed a great ulster football final Also , Monaghan v Cavan, Down VCavan and Tyrone v Donegal were very good
Antim v Cavan was ok as was Armagh v Derry, only one mismatch or poor game, Donegal v Armagh

It was a great Ulster Championship this year. Cavan were worthy winners in the end.

Helped from a TV point of view by the excellent coverage on BBC. It really helps when all the commentators and pundits really know their stuff and know Ulster football inside out.

Agree with this. The UC has generated some great games this year. The Tyrone Donegal battle was great and I really enjoyed yesterday's match. Tough hits, superb fitness levels, excellent fielding and some smashing points. End to end stuff. For too long endless hand passing was the corner stone of the game in Ulster IMO (Dubs doing it too much for my liking now TBH) but I think teams are mixing it up more now and putting balls into the inside forwards which is making for faster transitions and a better spectacle.

The much maligned inside mark has probably helped with the variation of play.

Yeah I'm not a fan of the mark but if something good has come of it then it's probably this tendency to play the ball inside but the resulting stoppage for the taking of the mark is then a problem.
