'For the sake of the country'. Are you not being a little dramatic Tarismelting? An anoymous poster, on a GAA forum that is full of crap, posts a radical point and you speak about it like it's Brexit?

Would AOS or COC be a Dublin regular? - 5 Like(s)
If Eoghan O'Gara is good enough to make it then there are a huge amount of footballers in the country good enough to make it.

Joe Canning for Hurler of the Year - 4 Like(s)

Replying To tiobraid:  "By the way, the idea of allowing replies to a post is to comment on the actual post of the other person. You haven't answered my question.... Does he deserve it more than any of the players mentioned? He's a top class free taker and a top class hurler but this year hasn't been his best year I don't see any logic to say this is his best year in a Galway jersey..."
Relax a bit, it's only an hour or two since my post. I'm not seated at the computer 24/7 reading Hoganstand. And not sure why you think you have to give me a lesson on the nature of the forum...

Anyway, I took the trouble of tracking your post about Chin and I quote, "To be perfectly honest I didn't think Mahoney done enough this year but he was close alright. H Himself and chin were certainly two men that played in that position to score well from play unlike bonner and canning."

Now, I'll do the pedantic bit for you - you didn't actually say Chin scored 'more'. But to say he 'scored well from play unlike Bonner and Canning'? Five points from four games is 'scoring well from play' and superior to ten points from five games??? I rest my case.

Yes, I do think he deserves it this year. Other posters have largely stated why. For the record, I thought his second half semi-final performance against the All Ireland champions when the game was really in the balance was the most magnificent individual input of the year, with all due respect to others who were undoubtedly outstanding in extra-time against KK or whenever. Watching him that day, I thought it was the perfect embodiment of the phrase, 'cometh the hour, cometh the man'.

Dublin' Costello throwing away the kicking tees - 4 Like(s)
Costelloo is shown, in footage in the Independent today, throwing away Clarke's kicking tees as he hurried to take a quick kick out after Rock's last score. Surely this was in equally poor taste as Keegan's throwing his GPS in the direction of Rock as he took his free. Amazingly neither the ref or or the umpires saw this or the fouling of three Mayo players as they tried to make themselves available for the kick-out. Perhaps more amazing is the fact that Charlie Redmond did not see any of that either or he would surely have being calling for 'examples' to be made of them as well as Keegan

INCORRECT. It was before Rock had even taken the free. Costello was well within his rights to throw it back in the goal. It is not allowed on the pitch during play

Would AOS or COC be a Dublin regular? - 3 Like(s)

Replying To Liamwalkinstown:  "Genuine question, not shit stirring, just want genuine opinions
Would either AOS or COC get game time, and I mean 50 mins a game kinda game time for Dublin?
I honestly dont think so.
AOS certainly wouldn't make the Dubs MF, would he make it as our 11? Again, all players fit, not for me. Dubs half forward line all players fit would be
Connolly Kilkenny Mannion, I dont see him getting in there
As for COC, up to now his greatest threat has been his free taking, and that has waned this year significantly. Deano is a better free taker and as good if not a better footballer. No way after that that he dislodges Con. So would he take the last spot over Andrews/Kmc/Brogan et al....again, not for me.

As I said, this is not a go at them, don't go taking it as a slight, its a genuine question.

Thanks"
This is a bit of a silly thread. We all know Dublin have the best panel of players and doing 3 in a row proves this but why the need to question players who continuously run Dublin so close? Enjoy your own team without worrying about others. Any team that has the luxury of starting an All Ireland final without Connolly, Brogan, Kevin Mc, MDMA and Paul Flynn among others shouldn't really be too concerned if players from other counties make their starting 15 or not.

Replying To tiobraid:  "Do Galway people feel he deserves it more than Whelan , C Cooney, MCinerney or Daithi Burke? There's not one Galway hurling man I know who thinks he does but maybe people here do..."
Yes yes yes and there is not a player on the Galway team that would be grudge him. Your dislike for galway is quite evident. If you get a chance to listen to a play back check out Sean Walsh commentary of the all Ireland semi final against Tipp when canning scored that winning point he was described as the HIGH KING OF GALWAY and that's what he is.

From the three nominated Joe Canning is getting it more as a reward for persistent year on year performances a la Ryan Giggs getting player of the year at 35/36..... Joe wasn't even the best player on his team this year. As someone said McInerney and the two cooneys and burkes were brilliant.
Of the three nominated Jaime Barron should win it but it's all about Joe.

Lee Keegan throwing GPS at Rock? - 3 Like(s)

Replying To pdempsey:  "As I've said before, this is a non event.
A small plastic object was thrown along the grass at Croke Park.
It's well down the list of offenses that were committed during the game last Sunday.
Can we move on"
Sorry but you can't excuse what he did that easily.If it entered Rock's line of sight in the split second before he made contact it could have put him off and it could have cost Dublin.It was an unsporting act unworthy of a great player.The fact that it wasn't the only unsporting act of the day dosn't excuse it either.

Vote for Joe the man you know

Everyone I've been speaking to about this today thinks its an absolute joke!

Every Sunday game analyst gave it to Gearoid McInerney. It was unanimous.

To think he's not even short listed makes this null & void for me which is a pity

Leave politics out of Sport

Glad to se 14 All Star nominations. There is surely no doubt as to who Player of the year will be. He has cemented his place as one of the all time greats. There would be no All Ireland without him. Amazing the so called analysts on The Sunday Game couldn't see this on the night. What he has produced in the last 10 years will never be repeated. Unreal.

Your Joe crusade is starting to sound a bit irrational. Aren't you the same poster who in an earlier instalment of your 'Canning is crap' series named Lee Chin as a superior forward because he scored more from play this year? Chin scored five points from play in four games. Canning scored ten from play in five games. Like I said, irrational stuff.

He started Sunday in the biggest game of the year, I don't think he would get a starting place in the Mayo team. It's horses for courses which is why your question is a silly one with no definitive answer.

No. They're from Mayo! Why start a thread asking people's opinions on a topic to simply ignore their replies and delight in belittling them?

"A new low for Gaelic football"... Jesus wept. The Dubs should just be thankful O'Gara has escaped scrutiny.

And for the record I agree that Keegan should have been punished... McQuillan should have moved the ball forward 13m.

Keegan in my opinion will get a lengthy ban, look he set a precedent and if its let go you open up a whole array of shenanigans to be tried. Equally O Gara should get a ban, no time for any of that messing.

None of this my county is any more or less cynical then the other guff, Kerry, Dublin, Tyrone and Mayo in particular have no moral highroad to take here.

Senior Club Hurling Championship 2017 - 2 Like(s)
I'm a neutral, but you'd have to wonder why Turloughmore broke the rules again. Surely, it's time to impose a more severe sanction on them, to ensure that they don't continue to screw up every second hurling championship going forward. Hopefully this nonsense won't be kicked around from committee to committee 'til Christmas. Turlough should accept their fate, and prepare to play legitimate players for next season, rather than ruining the whole thing for everyone again.
