    This is some bull**** version of the great game of hurling. Why try to sell the yanks a version of the game which in no way reflects the actual game and isn't a patch on the original either.

    I don’t mind it as an alternate tbh. Fast paced and high scoring.

    It's akin to Ferrari starting to offer their product in the states but decide not to offer Ferraris at all but instead a souped up Peugeot 206 badged as Ferrari.

    Without Rodgers it won't be good

    It's like one of those stupid training games where you try to simulate operating in limited space.

    Reminds me of when we played on small astro pitch in early season training. Led to quite a few injuries and schmozles!

    Great to see Galway scoring goals again

    Are they playing with a tennis ball? They seem to be making a lot of basic mistakes


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,665 ✭✭✭ Bonniedog


    President of Red Sox described it as "violent.":-) Although he likes it. Bigger crowd than Boston College last night.

    Sounds harder. Nearly sounds like a hockey or cricket ball when they hit it. Struggling to catch it whatever it is.

    A normal sliothar by looks of it when they do odd close up of them lying in the net. Second game much better than the first.

    Hon the Banner!!!

    That was great craic


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,665 ✭✭✭ Bonniedog


    That was way better. Galway and Dublin concentrated too much on physical aspect, which Galway won, whereas Clare and Tipp was actually good exhibition of skills. Final might be interesting.

    At 8. Kind of sad that the Boston Mayor whose parents are from Connemara has no irish. Then again, our own Minister doesn't either, other than a few clichés she remembered.

    Thought tipp would come out on top if it came down to that. Often touted as the most skilful team in the country. I suppose Clare love that short stuff though :)

    Its the perfect game for exporting to America - small sided, small pitch and using soccer goalposts. 30,000 people in the audience, very exciting for those watching with it just being goals only - I really like the rule about not being allowed kick the ball

    30k cos it's a one off gimmick. No one would go watch this on a weekly basis.

    It's not about growing the game as a commercial thing - but to get more players playing it as a sport
