I believe "schemozzle" or something similar is the gaah version. 😉
seriously though, i totally agree with you. Long range points from play are a skill that is great to watch. A game that ends 1-24 to 2-19 is going to have the fans absorbed from the throw-in to the final whistle. In contrast, a 1-10 to 1-9 result probably wouldn't.
Balls dropped short tend to cause a lot of "bunching" which is an untidy spectacle at the very least.

Few rumours around that the players in Waterford want fanning gone and that training tonight has been cancelled.
Looks like all not well there.
Hard job to try follow McGrath. Bit like Ger Cunningham trying to follow Anthony Daly in Dublin, difficult

Not the first time that The Blaahs have made headlines for the wrong reasons is it though? 😉

Mcgrath prob not helping with the articles he’s writing on what needs to be done to sort it out, and all but saying ‘I’d love to go back’

They played great stuff against Galway in Nolan Park in the league semi. He’s unearthed 2 excellent new defenders (Lyons & Prunty) - the problem is, and always has been, an inability to hit a score of anywhere near around 30 points which is what it is taking to win games over the last 2 years.

The lack of sharpshooting forwards is why Mcgrath went Uber defensive over the last few years also. Devine was a big loss for them & paddy Curran looked like being the great white hope but just hasn’t happened for him. Expect Brick back into the HF line for the limerick game, I’d swap Moran and Gleeson also. I wouldn’t be surprised if they turn limerick over.

Was at the Balls.ie night up in the Glen a few weeks back and McGrath was really coming across that he'd love to go back. He was tipping up Waterford this year big time and said he couldnt see Cork getting thru Munster. I still feel Waterford will be a dangerous animal coming to the Pairc, even if they are out by then. Thank god in a way that we get to sit and watch the others tear the shit out of each other the next day.

Won’t get much coverage but massive win fir the Kerry hurlers today vs Westmeath
Especially after Westmeath had set themselves up with their win vs Offaly last week
Joe McDonagh is a great competition, deserves more coverage

Shane Conway got 0-13 for kerry, brilliant player

A fantastic win up in Mullingar. Shane Conway is just in sensational form this year.

What do Offaly need to do to qualify? Also what was the players supposed issue with Kevin Martin? Too old fashioned or was there more to it?
