We'll be informed of how much this game means to Ireland in as many big words as possible

Disaster, hopefully he tones down the hokey pre prepared monologues this year.

Listening on the wireless and Jaysus, John Mullane is off to a woeful start. His voice has passed through three full octaves and we're only into the first 20 seconds. At this rate he'll only be heard by dogs.

There are no words to describe how bad John Mullane is on the radio. He's screeching into the mic; my ears are bleeding listening to him. And he struggles to describe what's going on. No questioning the man's hurling ability and status as a legend, but he has no business being on a mic. Painful stuff.

What is Shefflin on about..
It was red all day long. Hogan Nearly took the head off Barrett.
Shefflin is embarrassing with his defence of Hogan, good enough for Cody too. Hope tipp stuff em.

Good man Wayno. We don't all live walking distance to Croker and some of us have no other options if we want to follow the game live.

I know nothing about hurling but I knew that was a straight red, the intent was there as well as the contact, Marty Morrisey my God he is hard to listen to, must stick on the radio now to hear how bad that is, cmon Tipp!!

is Tipp the premier county? I'd never have known if I hadn't been reminded 100 times today already.

Personally I'm looking forward to the number of times Liam Sheedy says the word ''look'' in his interviews after the game and at the team hotel. I'll set the over/under at 25

Did Cantwell just say that Tipp are milking it!!

Sheflin made a wholly show of himself trying to defend the indefensible. Fair play to cantwell, put him in his place rightly.

Will they bring up Hawkeye, that point given when Hogan caught it 'supposdly' over the crossbar was no where near being over the crossbar

I can accept Shefflin going with KK line but what is even more annoying is the other lads that agree it's a red "by the letter of the law".

Its a red all day long by the letter, the spirit and every other part of the law! Hogan knew exactly what he was doing. There was nothing "miss timed by a fraction of a second" about the elbow. He nailed it.

Wouldn't it be lovely of the match commentators and the lads in the studio had a basic idea of the rules. Second half yesterday a Tpp player was pushed into touch on the Cusack sideline. Poor Marty was surprised that the "lineball" was awarded to Tipp until he finally realised it was actually a free to Tipp. Perhaps Croke Park should introduce Marty etc to the Rules and RTE should tell him to watch the game in front of him.

Ah come on Hurling is a physical sport Barrett split Hogan earlier and his dander was up it was harmless enough Tipp player made a meal off it no doubt about it do we want to turn hurling into a no contact shootout, same referee send David Reidy of Clare off in Ennis last year in one off the worst decisions I ever saw.

The Helmet protects players mostly so if we want to go down this road it would take any cut out off game.

Brain Cody said you would want to be absolutely certain it was a red card and Referee clearly wasen't sure it RUINED game €90.00 + €7.00 for programme and then food & fuel massive outlay game was gone 10 minutes after half time.
I know you will say not Referees problem but no common sense

As Kilkenny play a traditional game they had no plan to work the lines it was route one to Liam Fennelly or TJ
