Does Anybody Give A S**T About Hurling Classic? - 6 Like(s)

Replying To Bon:  "I've enjoyed watching it the past couple of years, disappointed it hasn't been televised this year."
Think TG4 got it right this weekend. Instead of showing us a hybrid game in the states between the top counites in hurling we got to see 2 club teams from second tier hurling counties in Carlow and Loais play as good a game of club hurling Ive seen. Now thats promotion!

Hurling Referees Destroying Hurling - 6 Like(s)
Its not fair to the ref to call it the worst performance ever as Babs did. The ref was very sharp and consistent in calling technical fouls most of which were arms around the shoulder, high tackles and throws. Nothing sinister but fouls none the less. Babs doesnt describe one single example of a foul that should not have been blown as a free. Instead he just tells us that there was too many frees. What are mickey mouse things? Are they not in the rule book?

Meath V Clare - 5 Like(s)

Replying To royaldunne:  "Best wishes to Andy Brian Donal and all the team today. Safe journey to all fans from both counties traveling to game. I like Clare , and I love their football people, they are very dedicated to the game in the face of hurling snobbery, so absolutely thrilled that they reached this far, obviously I hope they go no further this year. But still I have huge admiration for them. Hon the royal"
We like both games in Clare royal, unlike you.

The 3 in a row was tarnished by those Sunday game panelists talking about splitting Dublin tonight. Terrible stuff.

Replying To Cuckoosinging:  "looks amateurish? Excuse me but hurling is the sport where lads just drive the ball up into the air and hope for the best. Very rarely you actually see a good pass in hurling just lad been chased down coming out of defense and he hoofs it long a big roar from the crowd as two lads run after it absolutely no skill level. And its been a while since i seen 16points between the sides in any football match. Pathetic stuff"
Is that you again Cuckoo. Just reminding you again that you were beaten last year by a hurling team in the footabll c'ship. Go way out of that with your auld bladder. You wouldn't know one end of a hurley from the other and I doubt you know much about football either.

Puke Hurling - 4 Like(s)

Replying To brisbane:  "Watching Galway v Wexford and all i could think of was PUKE HURLING. Galway was always a attractive team to watch until they started playing in the Leinster championship i think they began to copy Kilkennys physical structured type of play similar to a football team."
I never remember Kilkenny playing as you call it Puke Hurling,. They played total hurling from my memory. Time maybe for Galway to take a look at themselves rather than blaming others.

How can you blame Dublin? Fact is Meath had all the chances today yet didnt take them. This game was more about how bad Meath were instead of how good Dublin were. Dublin only got going in the last quarter when Meath were drained.

Hurling Referees Destroying Hurling - 3 Like(s)

Replying To lochgarmanabu:  "On Sunday night Rte showed about 4 perfectly legal handpasses that the referee blew during the Dublin/Wexford match. Except for very late in the game he hardly allowed any advantage to be played. Perhaps his whistle was telling him it had had enough."
I agree with you on the advantage, he certainly didnt use it. But the ref doesn't have the luxury of an rte camera to zoom in on a handpass to tell whether there was space between the hand and the ball. But it wasnt either of these that seemed blatant frees to me. It was the over use of the spare hand around the shoulder and neck, yet for every free that was awarded and point scored the players kept fouling over and over again. Surely theres a message in this for the players too?

Hurling Gets All The Plaudits But Is It Played Within The Rules? - 3 Like(s)
"when you pare it back and take away the crazy tackling (UFC with sticks) the overzealous and often embarrassing punditry of the likes of tommy walsh, micheal duighan and john mullane it's not what it's made out to be. " When you pare back any game with the level of cynicism youve afforded hurling then all sports are not what they are made out to be. Ridiculous post.

Dublin's Success Not Down To Money - GAA President - 3 Like(s)
Interesting to hear Cheddar Plunket speaking recently about funding in Dublin hurling. He reckons the funds originally earmarked for hurling in Dublin in the early noughties was eventually 'hijacked' by the football development in Dublin. I sure would like to hear him expand on this. Was it just coincidence that it was the footballers that flourished after so much money was thrown at hurling in the capital?

Division 1B ignorance? - 2 Like(s)

Replying To crikey:  "It would be interesting if there was a Division with all the best teams in it i.e 9 teams"
Ok so we have a 9 or 10 team division 1 created just to please every so called top team. Surely there would be a need for promtion and relegation to this division. Then we have a situation where 1 or 2 of the so called top teams ends up in the second division with the weaker teams and 1 or 2 weak teams comes up to replace them. Al least with the present setup there is a mix of weak and strong temas in the second division.(1b)

Calling Kilkenny 'hurling destroyers' means you are missing the point completely. I just wish every other team would play like them, Then we would have fantastic hurling matches week in week out.

I have always admired Joe Canning the hurler. I am now a fan of Joseph Canning the man. Since they won the AI his attitude has been very mature and professional. Hurling and Sport put in perspective in a fine interview.

Why Does Everybody Have An Opinion On Hurling Relegation Now? - 2 Like(s)
There are too many using the Kerry thing to divert from the truth about standards in Leinster. Do you really think any of the Munster 5 would be overly worried about having to play Kerry to stay in Munster? If Kerry are good enough to beat one of them and I wish they were, then surely a full compliment of 6 teams in Munster is the way forward. This is not about protecting munster teams or any teams but its about keeping teams with a realistic chance of competing at this level in the Liam Mcarty cup.

Time for HURLING to leave GAA - 2 Like(s)
The difference between hurling and football can be summed up in one word. Dublin. The amount of publicity, money and hype attached to their football team is not only splitting football in terms of standards but has for years taken the attention off hurling when Hurling deserved better. This years hurling c'ship was far better in terms of entertainmnet value. However all we get day in day out on the press is what the Dublin players eat for breakfast. Mayo have been sucked in the hysteria for all the wrong reasons but seem to enjoy it. The Super 8's is just an example of how selling the Dublin product has got out of control. Hurling had no choice but to follow a similar path or risk being shadowed completely.
