Should There Be Extra Time In All Ireland Finals?

Of course there should be extra time on day 1, sure didn't the minor game go to extra time?
Apart from the obvious cynical answer of money I can't understand why the gaa can't just have extra time, every other sport on the planet has extra time.

So we should follow every other sport all the time???

They have extra time becuase been businesses they have their calendars packed out to maximise their earnings.

So no extra time is fine by me in an All-Ireland Final

This isnt about following other sports its what should be best practice and allows far better management of season timeframe and allows more time for club players. Extra time should always be played with drawn games and then a tie breaker on the same day. There is no good reason to go to a new day for games that are tied

Yes it should be finished on the first day. Interest has waned for the replay, offered two lots of tickets this morning.
Extra time & penalties on the day & finish it. The GAA were able to make 15 & 16 year olds do it the last day (despite all their bs on burnout) Senior game should have been the same. Consideration for club games is secondary to the Dineros & the fixation with money.
