You'd swear they were the 1st team to break from the parade before it was finished. It happens in nearly every game, one team always breaks first.

Calmed me right down to be honest, i knew we had won the psychological battle when i saw that. Why run away from the hill, i never understand it, it just jees Dublin fans right up.

These things happen and wouldn't lose too much sleep over it. Although if Tyrone had won, you'd have loads of posters say that this unsettled Dublin, got into their heads and all that nonsense stuff.

This kind of bitterness is disrespectful to the Association.

This is a total non-story, it happens in quite a lot of games where one teams breaks away before the parade finishes.

On another point, should these parades be got rid of?

I remember in one of the finals against Mayo, the Dublin team broke from the parade right before the hill and the Mayo lads saw it through passing right in front of the bear pit unaccompanied.

Fair play to them.

It was disrespectful from the Tyrone player's as people on hill16 pay their money too and should be entitled to the parade the same as the rest of the ground but won't loose any sleep over it as it's them who had the problem with us,the team I wanted to see paraded in front of us that's all that mattered.

They did it to try and rile Dublin, provoke a reaction, which, if Tyrone know absolutely anything about this Dublin team, they would know that psychologically, They wont let nonsense like that take their minds off the job that has to be done, our resulting annihilation and demolition job shows that.

For what its worth it had no effect on the game. Dublin didn't score some psychological victory that fed into the match in any real way.

I know it's tradition but I'd get rid of he parade. Needless and allows too much build up in players and can potentially add aggro as players get hyped up by crowd and then run to their positions and wait for throw in.
No issue with Tyrone leaving when they did. Why would you walk past a full terrace of just your oppositions fans...

It's been done many's the time before.

Either Down in '94 or Derry in '93 was the first time I remember it but I'm sure it happened before this.

It made no difference at all.

Well its just protocol, tradition whatever. It is not so you walk in front of your own crowd. Purpose is to go all round the stadium.
Personally I think it's great, especially when I have the kids with me. Adds to the razzmatazz and build up. Cranks up the volume too

Would this be something the Tyrone players decided amongst themselves or would Mickey Harte have discussed it with them? A full Hill in a full Croke Park is one of the finest settings in sport, its something teams should enjoy rather than avoid.

Will mayo go to the hill for the warm up in final they need something to rile them up and make it a dirty slow game.
Mayo will struggle big time if dubs are allowed play at pace on a dry day.

I'd say a parade is the last thing you need as a player.

Nonsense
Parade is a great spectacle and at a time when sports are killing the atmosphere created by supporters naturally it is one of the last traditions that gets the whole ground cheering and cranks up the volume and atmosphere, long may they continue on the big occasions.
