Things that continue to be right


#642

They’re all shite.


#643

For a man who supposedly plays tennis you seem surprised that a sport can contain lots of shots.


#644

They aren’t just shot upon shot so maybe you don’t get them


#645

Ok mate, bury your head in the sand


#646

You have a point in fairness. I’m very conflicted about score a minute bloodless hurling. I’d far rather a game that finished 4-8 to 3-10 than a game that finished 1-25 to 1-24. I might just be a dinosaur though.


#647

Look st the results from the all Ireland in the 90s compared to now. Some difference

I just heard a hurling man say it recently and am just regurgitating his point


#648

.:+1:


#649

They couldn’t hurl back then though mate


#650

It was a different game back then. There were no tactics, just lashing the ball up and down the pitch. A bit like you imagine hurling to be now.


#651

What hurling man?


#652

Fuck up you fucking idiot


#653

Keep out if it


#654

You didn’t make that up mate did you?


#655

no, I wouldn’t have an interest in hurling so was unaware how much the game has changed in the last 15 years. One thing for sure is that what was on display yesterday isn’t the game that Edward carsson codified in trinity


#656

Imagine a baseball loving yank watching those two games the weekend…
Back to the puke football this weekend.

#658

Would tend to agree
Taking Limerick as example, I found their 2014 semi final with Kilkenny a more compelling game than yesterday.
The kids these days just want scores I suppose


#659

Agreed, the best hurling final in living memory was the 1996 final

Total number of scores you ask?

28

check mate @padjo


#660

Gaa starting in 7 mins on TnaG and continuing right up to 9:00pm tonight*.
I’m about to take my place on the couch with a few tins of Chateau Lindene for the evening.

  • camogie quarters, but I’ll watch them too.

It takes Sham Rovers 125 Home Games to get that amount people through the turnstiles.
