Louth V Meath Leinster Final - 7 Like(s)
Watched the Sunday game last night and they revisited that 2010 LFF that infamous goal by Sheridan that he handled into net he admitted last night that it should not have stood he diden't say that at the time. He was in square and handled ball in.
Louth a tiny County waiting 50 years to be robbed like that a referee that woulden't even ask the umpire if you did that to Tyrone in their pomp your would not be safe.
Meath were so unsporting them a huge County claimed that there would have to be changes to by laws ect dident the GAA order a replay after Coooney's mistake in 1998 and wee had to put up with it.
Louth manager still hurting i wasent too impressed with Sheridan's smirking and postering on that day either.

Of course you are entitled to your opinion but as far as I am concerned if you think Hurling boring & mind numbing I feel sorry for you.
I have read and listened to endless comments on Hurling including other Countries and never have I heard this comment perhaps you could not master the caman and could only kick the Big Ball

Say what you like about the Healy Rays but they know how to look after their own kind in South Kerry
He had a hectic schedule dosen't drink so was down to fatigue he is a hurling man as well as football so think it was a cheap shot to snap him at a weak moment in time.

One think is for certain that there appears to be a lot of jealousy towards the Cats
IMO best hurling team and management ever Henry Shefflin best ever hurler TJ not far behind
I am sick off this politically correct Ireland we now have anyone that ever played GAA will know that its a physical game
Officials/administrators ruining the game with their rules

I have always held view that Henry Shefflin was best ever hurler but TJ Reid is well on way to competing for that title
He is Robot like from frees straight over black spot each time sideline cuts catching clean ball and making space unselfish
Brilliant attitude even though he is targeted gets digs he takes it in his stride.
Would anyone agree

Ah come on Hurling is a physical sport Barrett split Hogan earlier and his dander was up it was harmless enough Tipp player made a meal off it no doubt about it do we want to turn hurling into a no contact shootout, same referee send David Reidy of Clare off in Ennis last year in one off the worst decisions I ever saw.
The Helmet protects players mostly so if we want to go down this road it would take any cut out off game.
Brain Cody said you would want to be absolutely certain it was a red card and Referee clearly wasen't sure it RUINED game €90.00 + €7.00 for programme and then food & fuel massive outlay game was gone 10 minutes after half time.
I know you will say not Referees problem but no common sense
As Kilkenny play a traditional game they had no plan to work the lines it was route one to Liam Fennelly or TJ

Game was there for Mayo no doubt it wasen't that Dublin played bad Mayo were better for most of game but small margins decided it
(1) A few soft dubious frees to Dublin
(2) Mayo squandered chances from play
(3) Cillian O Connor should have nailed that free all top players do it but where was the corner forward when it came back off the post
(4) Mayo management again made wrong calls took off 2 scoring forwards
(5) Donal Vaughan actions were indefensible absolutely stupid would have got a scoreable free and a spare man for 30 minutes
i would make no case at all for him he cost Mayo that match .
Dublin are not the super team that the RTE panelists make them out to be it will haunt Mayo for the Winter

Watched it back last night if ever a referee kept a team in it it was this match Kerry were cruising referee gave 3 of the softest frees ever seen in last 5 minutes not to mention the push by Seamus Darby which should have been a free out
Kerry players dident ever seem to argue so made it easy for referee
Nowaday's the team with 4 points advantage in last 5 mins. would pass the ball to death to wind down clock not in them days, in fairness Mick O Dwyer was hugely gracious in Offaly's dressing room afterwards and I have never heard Kerry whinge bout frees maybe Offaly did deserve an All Ireland in that era but not on this day.

Many Congratulations better team on day no doubt victory hard earned and with new format you have to strike when iron is hot as they say, very hard to put back to back titles as Galway now know.
Hope victory will encourage children to play hurling in the City especially ad there are so many other distractions

Officials have a tough job the light sliother skill of players who catch & strike 90 metres in blink of an eye but it always seems to me that the big teams usually gets the breaks pity though as you said that more Limerick players dident complain but i was watching on TV dident notice neither Ger Canning & Brendan Cummins linesman was ahead of the strike C Buckley was too close pity that D Donovan dident try to work it short could have manufactured a free ref often makes a draw off it. Of course it was the poor wides in the end that cost the most.
No consolation at all to Limerick people but I think that Limerick Team have more potential that KK but its on the day that matters

I agree with you cute out Cronin in 2013 got about 5 undeserved frees got Dillon Booked & probably cost him an all star

They are being forgotten a bit had superb win V Cavan beaten by i point in two games W Meath & Laois could well be in a promotion dash if we has won them games.
The Ability of Colm Collins is simply immense I think small panel little impact subs lost 2-3 players that would make places in all other Top teams so well done to them.
Must win V Fermanagh at minimum

Can never be certain of course but can see why the Treaty men might well have regrets but in reality Limerick played poorly and management not sharp enough only one point in it of course
