I have to agree...wear your county colors...bring Your county flag and roar your county on...that's the only statement you should be making at a GAA game.

Things in the GAA that make you Cringe - 8 Like(s)

Replying To waynoI:  "The minute silence before every single game makes me feel ill aswell actually. Can we add that one to the list ? "Please stand for a minutes silence as a mark of respect to little Brucey, Mary O'Reilly's pet jack Russell, Who was run over by a John Deer tractor whilst Paddy O'Neill was out wrappin hay bales.....hey!!""
Wayno what is wrong with a minutes silence? The GAA is a community. I know you don't really get that same fabric in urban area's but in rural Ireland, the local GAA club is the centre of the world from actual games, local festival, a guard of honor at a funeral, the whole community looking out for each other. When a member the GAA members are there, preparing food, helping with parking etc. The minute's silence is a mark of respect which clearly you have not shown by that post which seems to take a swipe at rural Ireland which your tractor jipe.

Joe Canning - not fit to lace Shefflin's boots - 8 Like(s)
Hate these threads...attempting to beat down on a player after a bad game who's team have not won the All Ireland us easy and petty. I've seen the same happen Mayo players. Yes there was an coup but there is no instructions or rule books. These are amuteur players with jobs and normal lives...I think people except and demand too much on GAA players these days.

Imagine the uproar if Lee Keegan or Diarmuid Connolly had their hands around the neck in the choke like hold on an opposition player? This man is immune to referees...did the Sunday game call him out? Yearrah

I listened to the GAA Hour podcast and couldn't agree more with Parkinson. This game should be televised or at least streamed. Get some camera's out there, interview fans, ex-pats. Have a show sat night from a bar in New York with a discussion panel on the year ahead etc. Get some interest going. It is after all the curtain raiser to the Championship.

Replying To jimbodub:  "More excited about competing in our 6th final in a row if I'm honest, our young lads are doing very well, we have lads getting rested and once again Jim is going about his business in an exceptional manner. If ye barely scrape to stay up I wouldn't mind so much as playing Mayo has been an easy 2pts for our lads ;)"
Jimbo, like me your around here a long time but your coming across as very arrogant lately and it's not nice to see. Here is such as thing as a gracious winner you know.

Congrats Dublin - 6 Like(s)
Well done Dublin. The better team yet again. We can only look at our own failing again. This Dublin team ARE one of the great football teams. Time to drown the sorrows in the capital yet again. Still proud to be a Mayo man.

Joe Brolly hypocrisy - 6 Like(s)
Joe loves to talk as we all know. In his paper pieces he preaches respect and talks about community GAA, a fabric that hold us all together and that there is more the sport than just winning. Yet on the Sunday game he (and others) appear to mock teams outside of the top 3/4.
He once mocked Mayo for even bothar showing up against Cork in 2011..."When Cork beat Mayo" he said...
Last weekend Joe and Colm were laughing their heads of at the Munster final and called it "not a real game" which was very disrespectful to Tipperary. And yesterday he called Roscommon useless.

Joe and some other "experts" show a complete lack of disrespect to most county teams. Some of the stuff he comes out with is cringe worthy to say the least. Despite that I have great respect for him as a man, donating his lung and campaigning for organ donation etc. But come on Joe these are ameteur players who all go though the same training and hardship to wear their county jersey.

Bernard Flynn v James Horan - 5 Like(s)
Should all Mayo people in the Media quit their job, all Mayo players give no further interviews and Mayo give up football. It seems that's what the GAA world wants. Win an All Ireland or F off and shut up. It's a cheap shot to come back and say "show me your all ireland medals" and is an escape route to actually debating the point in hand.

Dublin people do not extend the hand Friendship - 5 Like(s)
Dublin fans like most are grand...the one's you meet in real life that is. Funny story though my sister's were on the Hill for the Mayo Tyrone game....they got some horrid abuse from a few Dublin fans near them including a woman...Enda Kenny, culchies, sheep...nobody was sparred :) They turned into Tyrone fans....yet once the Dublin game started Donegal were nothing but a shower of Northern so and so's....;)

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "I think it's more of an advantage than that yewtree."
Ok maybe the fact the Dublin players get to sleep in their own beds and travel less. Outside of that....?? Don't give me the crowd and hill argument because that works against them when things go wrong...also in Mayo's cause we matched their support numbers wise and I oh look could have outnumbered them on one occasion and also shared the hill with them (much to their annoyance).

County you least want to see win in football? - 5 Like(s)
Wayno the GAA is not about Dublin winning in croke park abs all the glamor that comes with it. Maybe your a club man too and if you are well done. I'd follow all teams but I'm not looking for a medal. I enjoy watching football and hurling. Do you just follow Dublin for the trill as opposed to actually enjoyed football? I actually prefer watching other teams. Watching Mayo can be stressful and I do t us usually relax until the game is over

That Hill 16 Army page along with the Mayo GAA banter page are a disgrace. Full of bandwagon idiots who know nothing about football.

Thought the commentary was a joke today. Ger Canning is a terrible commentator and Carr is annoying. Galway will need no motivation.

Galway VS Mayo - 5 Like(s)

Replying To Ailteoir:  "I don't think you can blame the ref there. Mayo in the last 10 minutes were more interested in starting rows than playing football. As for Aidan O'Shea how he managed to stay on the pitch, God only knows."
Cillian deserves to go. Aidan is pulled and dragged off the ball as usual. Galway better team today but I think we will be ready in May

Interesting picture from Sunday's game - 5 Like(s)
I am totally fed up with this discussion being honest. It now involves posters saying "your team does this" "Yeah but your team done that" - get over it. Dublin, Kerry, Mayo, Tyrone, Donegal......none are saints and all are sinners. Probably goes for all teams club and county in the country. Every team has it player(s) that are involved in "dark art's" as it is now called.
