League Sunday Thread

So the suspension cost him his place in dublin team? Yeah i think you’re right…has he started since?
Just shows Spillane had an agenda last time…made an absolute tool of himself lasr night saying it’s a black card offence when he read out the specific rule for connolly…its clear proof connolly doesn’t get a fair shake…


#363

Connolly was done solely on the basis of his previous rather than the offence, which was wrong.


#364

Spot on pal… muldoons waiting with their loaded chambers for anything the square jawed genius does wrong. .
Tyrone finishing for the goals was class…no way midfielder should have been sent off for lee keegan either. Ball there, a tad late but if they both were same size it would have been a simple collision


#365

Deegan is a terrible ref.

Cavanaghs black card was ridiculous, probably the linesman more responsible for that. Great to see Mattie Donnelly back to form, had a poor year last year. Loads of players really standing out in the league this term - McShane, Burns, Meyler and McGeary have all really staked their claims.


#366

Spillane is goosed now


#367

Cavanagh flung the mayo lad to the ground. It was fairly obvious. Boyle prob should have been black carded first time.


#368

The Mayo lad charged at Cavanagh when the play went dead and the two of them went to the ground.

It was a dreadful call and no doubt will be rescinded along the way if it comes to it.


#369

You’ve clearly never played the game. Cavanagh was sly about it but there’s no doubt that he flung him to ground.


#370

I see you’re being illogically argumentative so I’ll leave you to it.


#371

I’m not.


#372

What time is tonight’s show on at?


#373

Half 9


#374

RTE didn’t bother to show the pivotal moment in the Donegal - Mayo match in the highlights package there, when McBrearty butchered the chance to put them two points up deep in injury time before Mayo went down the other end to equalise.

RTE really are useless.


#375

Whelan and O’Se going on as if this starting a melee by the winning side in injury time is a new phenomenon.

It’s be going around for years. Mayo and Donegal were the victims of it in 2014 against the whiter than white Kerry when they instigated brawls as they tried to wind down the clock to their victories.


#376

Simple solution. No contact until ball in play


#377

Possibly some merit in Kieran Shannon’s suggestion that the sanction for a black card offence late on (can’t remember his suggested cut off time) anywhere on the field should be the concession of a free in on your own 14-yard line.


#378

Nothing on Boyle’s nasty hit on Gallagher either. He gets away with murder.


#379

Is that a wig on Philly.


#380

He looks folically challenged alright.


#381

Was only wondering that
