When I was going to school 4 x 20 was 80, not 70.

Who's the Dougal now :-)."]Don't complicate things too much for yourself. It's a bit like a half time break, only its done out on the field for one minute per half between 15 and 20 minutes in. Its great that you know what 4 x 20 is, but it's got nothing to do with a GAA match. The game is still 35 mins per half, not 40. That's 35 x 2 if you're still stuck."]"I think a game of 4 x 20 minute quarters in the All-Ireland series or even for the semi finals and final would be brilliant actually, see absolutely nothing but positives in such a move[/b]

Which part of the above brings you to 70 minutes SaffronDon ?

It's clear it's you who is stuck but I'll let you explain to me how 4 x 20 is 70.

80 minutes is 10 minutes more than 70 SaffronDon.

Good luck with that. :-).

To be fair, I'm swayed by that view.

An intercounty match has never been 4 20 minute quarters. Let that sink in.

But you can't compare two 40 minute halves from the 70's to four 20 minute quarters from today.
