So John Small drags Murphy to the ground (again) and both men get sent off? Same Craic as Clifford a few weeks ago. A joke.

Why are you surprised? He had earlier conned the ref by going down "injured" after taking Ryan McHugh out of the game. We've seen this before.

It is a joke but it has been that way for years. If two players tangle then regardless of who the instigator is both get yellow. It's a nonsense and always has been. It's the default setting for every referee.

John Small really has to be stuck in everything. Hit a man and stand up to the fight but don't lie down in a heap in hope that the referee sees it as 'accidental'. Would he go one on one with the likes of Neil McGee? No he waits to do someone falsely. He done similar against Kerry. Several late challenges and all ignored. He lets down a good Dublin team IMO. The remaining of the team are cynical but no dirt in them. They are a joy to watch. As someone stated above Tyrone got slated a few weeks back for 'targeting Clifford'. Big siege made out of it but what will be made of tonight's antics? Nothing. Another talking point has to be the time. Dublin V Monaghan near 4 mins on top of added time was played due to 'time wasting' nd substitutes. I agree to an extent but why doesn't this happen in every game?? 7 mins added on tonight and 8 was played. 1 minute extra for several stoppages, 2 yellows (reds) and a brawl. Referees need to cop on and apply the same rules to every team. If Dublin were losing by a point tonight (like in Monaghan game) would the ref of blown it up?? I don't think so. He would of gave them another chance. GAA is corrupt at this stage. Two referees needed, external source for timing the game, and glasses for linesmen and umpires.

Of course he did....Small had form with this type of thing. Watch him off the ball for a few mins in any game.

The less said about a certain Dublin footballer the better, but he is the most cynical player in the country. It was a disgrace the way Murphy got treated this evening and people wonder why our better players are opting for Australia. Referees, linesmen and umpires need to get their act together quickly and hammer cynical players. Shane Walsh will need Jujutsu lessons before the Dubs come to Salthill, he will be targeted in a dimilar fashion to Clifford.

Cork's Commemorate Jersey - 6 Like(s)

Replying To Breezy:  "What's the states official position on Kilmichael? I had just assumed that local events like that were left to locals to commemorate. And yes there is dispute around the actions of the IRA that day but what event wasn't controversial in that or any guerilla war"
Dispute from revisionists certainly and a certain unlamented late Canadian "historian" beloved of the same, whose claims were comprehensively demolished in History Ireland a few years back. Fair play to Cork for having the pride in commissioning such a jersey. A pity more counties wouldn't do likewise.

Small should have been off already at that stage as a few minutes earlier he took out Ryan McHugh off the ball before comically going down in a heap clutching his head as if he had been taken out. That sort of stuff spoils what was a great game from both teams.

Debate the game at hand....I've seen this tactic before to belittle our opinions and bring up a past incident in another game. If you can't debate it then you know your man was wrong.

A truly magnificent match in Croke Park tonight and it's still not over. All the skills of Gaelic football on display. Sublime scores, exceptional fitness, team work, tackling. Bravo to both sides.

Small did what Small had to do. I would have him in my team everyday. Didnt lose us that game. Every team needs a few John Smalls.

Fully sober I'd say and exactly right. Just as bad was Howard running in on Murphy when he was on the ground. Brave man.

Look at my past posts my friend...I've stated we are well versed in the dark arts in mayo....what gets me is Dublin fans thinking their golden generation are whiter than white. If that was a Tyrone man or Cillain O C that got Murphy sent off the internet would explode.

Every team has a boll*x or two in amongst them, it's bloody frustrating being on the end of it but we left that behind us there. Need to sort out our chance conversion because we're doing more than enough to win these games but leaving big scores behind

But only for Dublin games I presume? Since they are the only team at county level at any of this right? Just go back through this thread time keeping is an issue. But to accuse the GAA of corruption and bent ref's! The only thing wrong with the GAA are some of the people watching it.

Cork's Commemorate Jersey - 3 Like(s)
Next up in true GAA style, one county celebrating an event on the Treaty side & another county celebrating an event on the Anti Treaty side, what a spectacle that will create. Nearly every Irish family has a complex sample of history, family members in the RIC & in the old IRA, family members on the anti Treaty side or pro Treaty side. Like all matters currently within the GAA this is a mess. The family from Eastern Europe playing GAA in Cork will have no idea what's going on. The whole thing about inclusivity promoted by the GAA is not going to attract too many from the Protestant community in Cork with the new Jersey. Imagine if the new jersey was promoting white supremacy, the uproar there would be. I am very proud of my nationalist roots & my family's history but I don't go around forcing it on anybody or celebrating past events that open old wounds. There is one way & that is forward, not backwards, looking back on all sides just reopens all the old wounds & reignites tension. Cork GAA are entitled to do as they wish but it seems that it loves controversy, I think their mishandling of the whole PUC build & ultimate debt is a bigger issue as it will eventually affect clubs & their county teams, the jersey debate is probably a welcome distraction. Maybe a solution to their debt crisis would be a game with the Cork seniors & the new Jersey v the PSNI GAA team, guaranteed to fill the stadium !
