    The Clare match is as close to a knockout match as exists, and they have home advantage. Lose the match and you probably need 3 points from the other two matches to progress. If you can't get to all the matches, this is the one to go to.

    Making mistakes unnecessarily taking the ball into tackle when they could play back and forth and force Donegal to come out.

    Clare deservedly beat us in championship last year, and have us at their home again for what is for them (and probably for us) a knockout game. We're up against it, and it'll take a great performance, and perhaps a bit of luck, to come out of there this year with a result.

    I completely agree that the compression of the season (or at least the way it has been compressed) is a mistake, for a number of reasons.

    It's not mad. You might have a better idea, but to call it "mad" is inaccurate when there has been clear logical thought put into it. With the current arrangement, there's a reward for every position in the group: 1st gets a quarter final against a team which is mentally and physically...

    One game at a time in the group. All of those games a massive challenge, but we want to win the group, and damn sure that'll be the plan.

    It's a balls for us being seed 4 - but that's where we are based on results. If I were any of the other counties though, I'd prefer to have one of the other seed 4s in my group.

    Not being willing (or perhaps able, for various reasons) to give the required commitment at any stage is an entirely reasonable decision for an individual, and should be respected. Of course not being prepared to give the required commitment rules somebody out at that time (and BTW I have no...

    His suggestion is a good one. In the meantime, he of course calculates the percentages and does what he considers makes his team most likely to win - i.e. those antics. Yeah, you are right about The Sunday Game - if Cork had been winning and did the same thing (which I hope we would, given...

    I went wildly off topic for the thread. What you're here for is the right stuff.

    Sometimes I do get over-carried-away with a self-assessed wisdom of my own opinion....! Anyway, it's rule 5.41 football. See https://www.gaa.ie/api/images/image/private/t_q-best/prd/snhrjdgiuudoyr3wxyol.pdf.

    Well it isn't difficult to speculate what might be the reason in the case of the rule I mentioned. It may have been felt that the rule was needed most at intercounty-level where the cynical accidentally-on-purpose or openly-on-purpose stuff is at its greatest, and certainly is most visible and...

    The location of the infraction has to be (a) Inside the 20-metre line, but not within 25 metres infield of each sideline or (b) Within the semi-circular Arc The player in possession does not have to be located there. If an attacking player is deliberately collided with in those...

    More generally: Cork take last years AI finalists (who barely lost) and the prior-year's AI winners, on in their home patch, led for most of the match, and could have won. And in RTE it must have been that Kerry were bad/rusty/off-form/in-training-block/etc. - it could not have been 'cos Kerry...

    Thanks to the Cork footballers and management yesterday, and to the supporters, and the weather. Courage, came to win, tried hardest. And plenty evidence there's more in us.

    The covered stand in Killarney is on sale again. Adults and juveniles (only €5 for Juveniles). Now, there's no rain forecast, so people might not be so interested in the stand anyway. Can be handy for children tho.
