Club Championships 2018

If all of those counties had the same advantage as Galway they’d have winners too


#1422

Actually I didn’t read that last post right. Offaly :laughing:


#1423

What exactly is your point here and what relevance does it have to the discussion at hand?


#1424

Well no, as galway teams have regularly beaten munster and Leinster champions in intermediate to get to finals. Teams from those counties have never won the munster or leinster championship. And another terrible argument holed below the water.

All you can hide behind is the imaginary unfair advantage argument. No doubt you whinged ot for years about our seniors. And what has happened in the senior, since we got a somewhat level playing field, our best era ever almost, perennial finalists and semi finalists. Unfair advantage was actually holding us back.


#1425

The galway championship is harder to win than munster. Ive now proven it so you pretend you dont follow. Try keep up.


#1426

Why are you talking about that when the discussion is about the intermediate grade?


#1427

The stupidity of this post when discussing the results of the all ireland series has to be saved im afraid


#1428

You’re basically arguing that if say Tipp got thrown straight into an All Ireland semi in 2019 they would have no advantage over the other teams


#1429

Jesus keep up. I of course am saying that, and im saying it because it has been proven that with a provincial championship to hone the team, galway have been far more successful than when they were thrown straight into the semis. It ahas been proven, lets see you totally misunderstand that now…


#1430

You really could have saved Rocko a huge amount of storage space if you actually read what was written instead of rushing in all guns blazing getting all upset about your beloved Galway intermediate championship

Again, with your usual debating logic of having to reference the county of the poster you write to, if you want to discuss Wexford club performances, work awaw. It would be a very short discussion however as wexford has probably the worst record of any county participating. I’m not sure how you think you upset me by saying they’ve a shit record, but I’m sure you’re right as you always are


#1431

So your argument was stating the obvious and wanting no further discussion. Ok.


#1432

How have Galway been more successful now than they were in the 80s?


#1433

Just to clarify for anyone unfortunate enough to be following this conversation, @maroonandwhite thinks its no advantage to get a bye to an All Ireland semi final every year


#1434

They were the best team in the country then and would have won more if tipp hadn’t relied on official help.

How is it that they are more successful now than in the 60s, 70s, 90s and 00s?


#1435

And thats been proven to be correct by galways performance since. And not refuted by you. Thanks.


#1436

I don’t think a team that wins two games can reliably be called the best in the country

They were obviously shite in the 60’s,70’s and 90’s and they didn’t get a bye to a semi final in the 00’s did they?


#1437

What happened when Galway came into Munster?


#1438

If you want discussion I could just start making up stuff and pretend you said it and randomly bringing unrelated stuff into the discussion for no reason. That sort of discussion?


#1439

So to turn your argument around as you are doing me a huge favour, why are they good now and competitive every year(when you think the advantage is gone?) And why were they no good for decades when as you say they had a huge advantage, ie they should have been winning?


#1440

What was your argument??
