    Two lads acting the hard man and one went down. Nothing to see, move on.

    McManus fortuanate too not receive a black card.

    This should really be the championship though, imagine these games in spring/summer.

    Is there any possible way of removing the power of provincial councils?

    Cooper was partaking in sledging, holding off the ball ie. as he usually does. He then tries to trip McManus. Of course, McManus was having none of it and sent Cooper flying. :D

    You've seen exactly what you've wanted to see there.

    You obviously didn't watch the match. It'll take a lot to defeat this in funniest moment of the season! :D

    A trip is trip, punishable by a black card. Lucky man.

    Yeah that was a sneaky dirty one from McCarron. Doubt we'll see the same uproar as we've had all day about Donie Smith though somehow.

    It was indeed.

    Why not?:confused:

    Clearly, Cooper was lucky also:

    'Threaten or to use abusive or provocative language or gestures to an opponent or a teammate.'

    I think McManus dumping him on his arse was punishment enough for Cooper though. :D

    Because Mayo, the shining white knights of football. There hasn't been an utterance today about him throwing the head back at Smith.

    The same as a Mayo player throwing the head, a Dublin player getting kicked in the head is grand with the 99.9% of the media who push this stuff.

    I'd condemn and believe any attempted head butt should be sanctioned but still fail to see what that has to do with your post?Higgins should not have retaliated that the main focus is rightly on the instigator.

    No it's not grand that any Dublin player gets a knee in the head.I don't know where you are getting that idea.

    Watch the usual talking heads tomorrow and see how many times it's mentioned compared to how many times the eye gouge was mentioned today and come back to me. It's all about who it happened to rather than what happened.

    Cry me a river. Eir Sport completely brushed over the eye gouge thing last night. A few mayo fans were rightly annoyed on Twitter but I haven't seen any of the main pundits say anything.

    McCarron should have seen red today as Smith should have last night.

    Was McCarron booked for that? if so nothing more will be done going by the past incidents.

    I can't recall now but yeah if he was booked then he's in the clear.

    I'd be holding off on praising them until we actually see what they come up with.

    The big issue previously is that they would spend a huge chunk of time on the already broadcast games [ Mayo v Roscommon and Tipperary v Clare in the hurling from last night and Monaghan v Dublin and Wexford v Limerick in the hurling from today] instead of the other games that weren't broadcast.

    I will not be a bit surprised if the 4 already broadcast games get more air-time than the other 27 intercounty games played this weekend.

    You might get some footage from the lower leagues on TG4 Monday 8 to 9 pm. Division One always got the lions share of coverage on Sunday night.

    Live games have a lot of resources deployed and lend themselves to later highlights. I don't expect that there was a big array of cameras in Drogheda for Louth v Longford.

    The improved League Sunday show has been around a few years now.

    Previously they just showed what Eir and TG4 showed now they show much more and have analysis

    It's not far off the Sunday Game to be honest.
