It tells me that you are deluding yourself if you think you will come anywhere close to Dublin at the business end of the championship."
Worry about the Championship when the Summer starts.
I'd rather have my County in a Div 1 League Final than relegated to Div 2?

To come back from that deficit and to win by two points is as sweet a victory as they come. Well done lads.

Meath posters need to let the toxic begrudgerrie go ye have a very good side, hardluck again I suppose. I think Galway are not as far off the Dubs as ye think either.

Replying To benched:  "Previous post you said something along the lines of let's not discuss what "might" of started the row in the tunnel - because you haven't a clue what started it have you? But now here you are making all sorts of allegations - throwing mud hoping it sticks, deflecting from any misdemeanours of the Dubs. You could learn from some of your fellow county contributors - both teams well able to dish it out as with all top teams"
Yes but did I actually say what you allege that I said? I don't think so. I actually haven't made any allegations. I was at the back end of the stand last night to the right of the tunnel. I'm just saying what the talk was coming out of the ground. I'm sure there will be an investigation into it and the truth will come out. Nice attempt to deflect though "all top teams are at it".

Certainly not for "blue idolatry" anyway. Jayz, I've heard it all now.

How dare Galway beat Meath in Navan, the cheek

I dont care about Galway winning in navan - its the disgraceful pulling and dragging of players let off by the ref I had an issue with - same as RD.

I was beside some Mayo people in a storm in navan last game and had no issue with them winning - another close game but they won fair and square.

And I generally do like galway football but was quite surprised today considering all the good things we had heard about them.

If you have a ref like todays in navan then, yes, you have a chance against anyone.

Donegal played really well today & after yesterday's heroics by Tyrone, the meeting of the two in Ballybofey next weekend in nicely set up.

Replying To giveitlong:  "Tyrone needed a win very badly to avoid being involved in a relegation battle over the last 2 games in a very tight league. They would have know this was their best chance of picking up the points and so it proved. The Dubs don't have much experience of playing in gutter up to their ankles, they are a long way from top form so far this year and have a new manager. The conditions and venue suited the home side as did a weak ref. The melee, the off the ball stuff such as on the Dub goalie are all part a parcel of doing whatever it takes. Tyrone are safe in Division 1 for 2021 that's all that matters. Regardless of who initiated the tunnel stuff it will go completely unpunished. Already in fact those who are calling it out for what is is, Brolly for one, are being vilified more than the perpetrators."
Tyrone are not safe. If Mayo beat Galway and Donegal beat Tyrone or its a draw, then it comes down to a shootout in castlebar between Mayo and Tyrone.

Replying To StoreysTash:  "There is a number of common denominators in these incidents:
1. Tyrone
2. Tunnels
3. Out of sight of the referee.
4. Non-playing officials involved

Do we need to look at separate tunnels for each team? Or does the linesman need to be in the tunnel before the players? Or the home team has to enter the tunnel first because these grown men can't be trusted to act as such?
Is that the level of savages that we have become in the GAA?"
100% agree. These incidents like last night that occurred over the last 15 years or so seem to have one county involved quite a lot

Horrible journey to Navan. Big result, 8 down, win by two. Roll on Mayo, could we relegate them? Will be a big battle.

Replying To moc.dna:  "These cynical events are planned & one holier than thou figure is responsible for instigating the thuggery all the time. It's sickening listening to individuals lecturing on morals & then sending lads out to commit acts of thuggery on & off the field.
As for the supporters who jumped in, just like the club final they won't be identified or punished & fellas will take it further & further each time as there is no deterrent. The only time the GAA will take action is when somebody gets seriously injured or killed or when public images of kids getting entangled in a melee appear. In other sports the punishments are instant & very severe, but then in other sports that are even more physical, players can line up & shake hands directly with their opponents & walk up & down tunnels without any incident. But it doesn't happen in GAA as the level of hate & spite that is there is massive.
Some day very soon kids who line up to welcome teams on to the field or playing in bands are going to be entangled & injured by people who can't control themselves & are egged on by managers who drive the cynicism & hate."
How do you know who sends who out to do what? Do you be in the dressing rooms to hear all this? These boys are big enough to do their own things and that's on all teams. From what I hear there was a lot of pulling and hauling today in Salthill. Did Joyce send them out to do it? Who is Holier than thou now?

Thought we played well enough today good to see some of our injured players come on in the 2nd half again we concede a poor goal due to a silly turnover and the lack of a free taker killed us again until Lenihan came on. As was the case with Mayo another game we let slip but I see a huge improvement since the Donegal game. Unfortunately we're back down again I really hope we can get back up next year as it's been fantastic back in div 1

If Tyrone win against donegal on the Saturday we technically can't be relegated in salthill if Galway win but in reality we would be. It would take an outrageous turnaround in points difference that would be unprecedented if it happened. Any other result in ballybofey and we will be officially relegated if Galway win

Galway haven't been involved in much pulling and dragging in games up to now but decided today was the day to do it? Interesting change of a game plan when the previous tactics were working so well. If you don't think Meath were equally involved in the s***e that went on then you're deluded.

I hope the Mayo posters are enjoying the spectacle of Meath lads complaining about dirty play costing them a win.

Hurling was on in Pearse Stadium. Footballers were in Navan. Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.

What were the hurlers doing on Salthill? I was in Navan so I'll have to watch the highlights tonight

Padraic joyce last week making his way onto the pitch to stop the lads entering the dressing room at the same time as the tyrone lads speaks volumes. He hadnt done that before and he didnt do it today either.
