Re: Joe McDonagh cup

Looking at the fixture list, I am genuinely excited about the championship for the first time in years. They will be 4 good games with teams at our standard with something really tangible to play for. Bring on the Summer.

I generally like your posts POTH, but found this one disrespectful towards Laois. No need for it.

Re: Senior A Football 2019

I agree with knockout too. With only 8 teams, you could run it off in 3 weekends - lets say "April for clubs". Lets lads plan their Summer without having to worry about dreaded football matches getting in the way. Avoids the dreaded player burnout potential issue. Also, makes room for way more inter...

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

So, is it fair to say that you generally agree with the structure of the championship overall Lone Shark, with a couple Of slight modifications? The changes being: relegation playoff between bottom in Munster and Leinster with the loser dropping and being replaced directly with Joe McDonagh winner? ...

Re: NHL Division 1B 2019

It shows the prospect of ‘playing in a competition where there is a chance of winning something’ is not an incentive for players to get out and play for their county. I am not so sure that I would make the same mental jump as you on that one Plain. You are essentially saying, Offaly are not in lein...

How would a suspension 14 months ago impact this game?

Re: Leinster Club Hurling

I get the point you are making that there are only 6 teams left so what’s the harm in a replay but I really think that dragging the club championship out for 3 more months needs to stop. In the long term it means clubs have no break as they have to jump straight into 2019 championship next April loc...

Re: Leinster Club Hurling

I looked at the replay again and you are right in all 3 cases bracknagh.
Carroll did drive the butt of his hurl into #2 and the keeper did swing a wild left.

Re: Leinster Club Hurling

It was really hard to tell what Carroll or Keaney did in the initial incident to warrant a red and yellow card respectively. Similarly with the 2nd yellow for Keaney. both can judge themselves unlucky to get sent off and probably have a case to appeal. Brady did strike and it was the right call. Kee...

Re: Leinster Club Hurling

I have seen a few posts and tweets disagreeing with extra time X2 being played on the day, especially considering that there will be a massive gap after the provincial finals to the AI semi finals. I actually think it is a great move to try to finish games in one day and it sets things up nicely for...

Re: Leinster Club Hurling

Watched the TG4 coverage and Brady was blessed not to get a straight red for the wild pull. Ironically, the first yellow that was dubious actually saved him getting a straight red, as it was an easy option for the ref to reach for a second yellow. Coolderry were sharp with their striking and touch t...
