Hurling Championship 2018


#342

Not a prayer of that happening. If they do end up
meeting and I have my doubts about Galway being honest, Cork will beat them.


#343

who dont they use the “point detection system (not hawk eye honest)!!” which they have in cork. Must be a lot cheaper as Barry from LocalVision stuck it in.


#344

Should be a handy win for Wexford?


#345

Also easy win for limerick v Carlow. Not sure about this element of the structure. Hopefully the mcDonagh teams can keep in the game for a respectable period.


#346

It’s totally daft. You’d nearly be better off taking this route in one way if you were Offaly!


#347

Ah it gives the McDonagh added significance.


#348

It’s Barmey though, what the round robins have proven is how good hurling Ian when equally matched teams play each other. These could both be over after 10 minutes.


#349

Who’s Ian?


#350

I Hate typing on my phone. :grimacing:


#351

He still misses the very reverend Dr so much, it slips into his posts now and again!


#352

Message just in from Ian. ‘Leave ir ou !’


#353

It gives Tier 2 teams a chance at All-Ireland (Liam McCarthy) glory every year.
Ok, so we know that neither Carlow nor Westmeath will win today, nevermind the All-Ireland. But offering this outlet might be the one clause that gives us tiered championships in football.


#354

No real issue with that, but in theory (very unlikely to ever happen) you could win the all Ireland and still be in tier 2 the following year. Similar to the league where you can win the league and be in the 1B the year after!


#355

Promote both Tier 2 finalists and relegate 2 teams from Sam.


#356

Yea should work better in the football alright!


#357

Can KK bring it again today? Fancy Galway to push on myself as most others do but Cody has certainly gotten a lot out of this group of players again.


#358

Any changes to last weeks teams?


#359

And this coming from a prat who wouldn’t wear boots cus they were hurting him!!!


#360

Think Galway will respond this week


#361

independent.ie and Babs Keating? No thanks. (Though I agree, Keating is a prat).
