    He may as well not be there.

    It's the fashionable way to referee a hurling game these days - give absolutely nothing.

    You can have a flowing game of hurling and blow for clear fouls too. Ridiculous stuff.

    No matter who wins and it looks like Limerick now, this ref has put in a very poor performance. Worst I have seen in a while. Missed a load on both sides

    Terrible game of hurling here. Fair play to Limerick in that they turned up physically but I've not seen Tipp so gutless in a long long time.

    The hurling is gone as bad as the football.

    Last year against Cork, also in the first game.

    I think the conditions did have a big effect on the game but that doesn’t excuse some woeful free taking and shooting.

    In a way, the purists will say that today a bit of the magic is lost because that’s an enormous victory for limerick but there was no jubilant scenes at the end as it’s now only 2 points on the board.

    Tipp under serious pressure now. Playing 3 weeks in a row with Cork at home, Waterford in Limerick and Clare at home.

    Good result for Limerick with them having going into the rest week before they face Cork on Sat 2nd June

    Desperate game of hurling. Tipperary very poor again today. Their performance against Galway last August probably glossed over their poor year. They just never looked like growing in to the game at all today. The free flowing, all action hurling they played in 2016 seems like an awful long time ago now.

    It was a very strange game/atmosphere, the only exciting passage of play in the whole game was the 15 seconds before the first Tipp goal. Tipp need to raise things in a big way before next week or they’re under pressure to go anywhere this summer. No intensity today and I thought their hurling was poor all around the pitch.

    If he was, he was smirking on behalf of his whole county. Big cheer in Nowlan park when the result was announced.

    You’d miss the buzz of the old format

    Packed house- proper championship hurling. No excuses. I just don’t like this league format. Not the same

    Kk making hard work of Offaly

    10 left 1.16-1.11

    There hasn't been packed houses in the Munster quarter- and semi-finals for years.

    **** me, we have missed opportunity after opportunity so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,293 ✭✭✭✭dastardly00


    A few minutes left, KK 2-19 Offaly 1-13

    I don’t understand the GAA logic in relegating Offaly or Dublin-
    Serves no purpose for them in joe mc donagh cup?

    Well you could say the same about the top teams in the Joe McDonagh. There needs to be the possibility of promotion to provide incentive.

    I do think though a better system would be for the two bottom group teams to play off in a relegation play off, with the loser then taking on the winner of the Joe McDonagh for a place in the championship.

    Worst case scenario the team gets relegated and if they're good enough they'll win the Joe McDonagh and they'll be back in an all Ireland quarter final.
    I'm not a fan of that sort of playoff as the team from the top tier could in theory lose five matches in a row and stay up by winning one while the team in the Joe McDonagh could win six in a row and still miss out. Theres also the issue of when the play off would take place.
    Would the Joe McDonagh team have to play the play off before their All-Ireland match or would it take place once they get knocked out?
    If they had to play before then the whole Joe McDonagh tournament would need to start earlier but that'd have the same flaw as last year's setup where all the lower tier teams seasons were effectively finished before the ground hardened up. Playing after the Joe McDonagh team eventually drops out of the All-Ireland race would give their relegation playoff opponents a great window to tailor their gameplan for the match.

    I think the winner of the tournament needs the prize of straight promotion to really make it a tournament teams will celebrate winning. Maybe extend Leinster to six teams to avoid relegating Offaly or Dublin (based on form it'll be one of them that finishes bottom) this year. If Kerry win the Joe McDonagh let them into Leinster.

    Dubs were 5 points down and 1 up before extra time.


    Wexford won it in the last 2 mins of extra time.

    I agree in theory but there's no way it'd get through congress.

    Wexford beat the dubs by two

    Dublin v Offaly virtually a relegation play off on the June bank holiday

    Just relegate one of Munster if they're bottom. If you finish last out of five then tough titties.

    Don't want to be relegated? - win more games.

    No Joe McDonagh team should be promoted unless they can beat the last placed team in the provisional group in a play off.

    Yeah, it should apply to both munster and leinster.
