Longford V Meath - 18 Like(s)
It'd be great to see an upset. To see one of the minnows have their day in the sun and give a little joy to the long suffering fans but I just can't see it I'm afraid. Longford by 2.

Replying To Themall1916:  "Ronan O'Gara was a fine rugby player won a few triple crowns a grand slam and two Heineken cups happy retirement Ronan."
I'm sure Ronan's a great lad and all the rest but he never buried a goal into the Hill to finish off the Kingdom in an All-Ireland semi final.

Replying To Aibrean:  "Andy was good but Cillian O Connor the highest scorer of all time, FGS!"
By your logic that makes Cillian O'Connor a better forward than Gooch, Maurice Fitzgerald, Peter Canavan, Pat Spillane, Matt Connor etc.......

Complete straw man argument Wayne imo. Disagreeing with the Sky deal doesn't equate to believing everyone has a right to watch every single game on TV.

I'm 'fishing' and you took the 'bait', 'amn't I so clever' schtick is a fairly tired way of putting up an unpopular and inflammatory opinion and then not having to have the ability or intelligence to defend it. Royaldunne's pro-Loyalist persona is part of his character by now on here but he's always 'trolling' when replied to for some reason.

Replying To legendzxix:  "There was a time only the semi-finals and finals were shown live. People who were not attending the other games listened to the commentary on the radio. Radio coverage is still available."
There was a time when people didn't have electricity in their houses too.

Two Different Sets Of Rules - 11 Like(s)

Replying To gaelicgab:  "Diarmuid O'Connor receives a straight red card for an elbow on Paul Conroy last weekend. John Conlon commits a very similar offence on Daniel Kearney today and walks away with just a yellow card. I'm not sure if the referee even awarded a foul for Conlon's challenge. The linesman pulled him up on it afterwards. Two different sets of rules for football and hurling it seems."
It's almost like they're different sports.

Should Westmeath V Dublin Be In Mullingar? - 11 Like(s)

Replying To Richieq:  "https://www.balls.ie/gaa/westmeath-dublin-418377 Leinster Council already bending the knee on this one and chairman Jim Bolger has said that it's more or less decided that O'Connor Park in Tullamore will be the venue and that a 11K capacity at Mullingar doesn't do it for them, what utter tripe from these supposedly educated administrators, once again they put equality, fairness and benefit to the local community to one side using health and safety as a convenient excuse, Westmeath may as well flog Cusack Park off for housing and many other counties may as well follow suit if that's the case, this is just beyond farce here at the minute, a soccer club with tens of thousands of season ticket holders can be drawn away in the FA Cup to a ground with a capacity of maybe 6 or 7K and yet here a county with at most 4000 season ticket holders can't play in an 11K capacity stadium in a provincial competition that is dying on its knees and at least needs a degree of fairness in its fixtures to make up for its lack of competitiveness, at times I really don't understand how these sheep are still in charge of running our games"
I totally agree that the game should be in Mullingar. However the season ticket comparison to soccer, which I've seen crop up , is a false equivalent. A soccer season ticket in any league entitles you to entry to all your home league games. It does not entitle you to any away league game, any away cup game or even any home Cup game. Everyone knows this when they purchase their season ticket. The GAA season tickets are sold with the guarantee that you will be able to get a ticket to any League or Championship game that your county plays. It is a different thing from a soccer club season ticket. Everyone knows this when they buy their season ticket. Now that isn't to say that there can't be a work around but the comparison with soccer season tickets does not hold up as soccer season tickets are sold with different conditions to GAA ones.

Is Ashbourne The New Ballaghaderreen? :) - 11 Like(s)
Menton came across a little silly and petty to be fair. The Credit Union is a community based organisation that put up a post congratulating the Dubs because they know that a lot of their members are Dubs living in the locality. Also I'm sure that the Ashbourne Credit Union's catchment area extends into North County Dublin as well to around the Rock's homeplace in Ballymadun, Co. Dublin, so Menton's rant looks fairly ill-informed for a man from the locality.

Should Westmeath V Dublin Be In Mullingar? - 11 Like(s)

Replying To cuttothebone:  "There is no way Leinster council will take Dublin's advantages away from them, Westmeath might not be up to beating them at home next year but they're never going to risk setting a precedent for facing an improving team in the future that would risk ruining their tens of millions pet investment. Unfortunately some teams will let Dublin roll over them but if Kildare find themselves in the 1st round again and drawn against Dublin sometime, the entertainment from the stand off over the venue alone would be worth it.."
This is from Kildare who have in the past played their home league match against Dublin in Croke Park. If the Leinster counties that aren't Dublin all grow a pair then yous could have Dublin on the road for every game. Laois were awful vocal in 2016, but silent the other years. Carlow were vocal in 2017, but silent the other years. Wicklow in 2018 etc etc I wonder what the Westmeath CB reps thought of the situation before this year?? The game should be in Mullingar but the 11 other county boards in Leinster really struggle with having a party in a brewery.

Hoganstand To Go Into Meltdown! - 11 Like(s)
It is not a lie. Obviously it is much harder to separate fans on the Hill than it is in say a premier league game, as tickets to the hill are just general admission and you can stand whereever, so it is not a 100% separation of fans. However, stewards have clearly been directed to separate opposition fans from Dublin fans. Take a look at the highlights from from 2019 All Ireland final, or the 2017 All Ireland final or the 2016 replay. Notice how the majority of the Mayo and Kerry fans have been directed up to the side of the hill near the cusack stand. I didn't stand on the hill on those days but I heard from my friends straight after the match how stewards were separating Mayo fans from Dubs and directing them up to that section of the hill. It was also clear as day when looking at the hill from the cusack stand where I was sitting, and it's still clear as day today when you look at the highlights on YouTube, it's especially obvious in the 2017 final due to the numbers of Mayo fans who had tickets for the hill. Someone in this thread posted a similar story. I'll quote it for you: "2 weeks ago a couple of Kerry young lads were in the hill for the minor game (cork and Galway) and they situated themselves behind the goals when the stewards came down and told them move up to the back corner, when the 2 lads asked why they had to move they were told it was for their own safety" I hope you'll take this on board, and apologise for calling me a liar. jonjon (Mayo) - Posts: 17 - 17/09/2019 12:31:53 You have lied though, I don't know if you are a habitual liar or not but you've certainly lied here. I've been on the hill for all those games and there was no attempt to stop people from standing in any particular section according to what county they were from. There were Kerry people in all different sections of the Hill on Saturday, as there had been for the drawn game. They were there beside me, directly behind the goals. Stewards ask people to move if they are in a section that is over full or if they are blocking the steps. And that is of course for their own safety and the safety of all others on the terrace, and quite right too. I can't apologise for calling you a liar because you are clearly telling lies. There is no attempt to separate fans on Hill 16. Otherwise how do you explain the fact that there were Kerry and Dublin fans in all corners of the hill last Saturday as well as at the drawn match. The same in the recent finals against Mayo, there were Dublin and Mayo fans in all sections of the hill, there were Tyrone and Dublin fans in all sections of the hill last year. Your lie is quite so obviously a lie that it is staggering that you are so committed to your lie.

Donal Óg Cusack Belittles Fellow Gaels - 11 Like(s)
His point, while badly put across, was more that the a resistant attitude to change in hurling tactics is similar to the the resistant attitude to change in Britain towards tactical innovation in soccer which left the Home Nations well behind their more innovative European and South American rivals. How the opening poster thinks he was having a go at the true Gaels or calling people West Brits is beyond me. Maybe his point is BS, maybe not, but at least debate what he was trying to say rather than making out he questioned their true Gaeldom or some other nonsense.
