    No wonder teams can't beat Limerick when they can't even come to terms with the fact we are the most skillful team.

    'I'm sick saying it'. Not half as sick as we are reading it. Over the top nonsense.

    Don't often agree with Lar Corbett in the Sunday World but his team of the year is a lot closer to the mark than the clowns on the Sunday game

    Yous will see yet in that case! Limerick and KK advanced turgid hurling for far too long, it will be over thrown in time. It's a skill based and technical game, and in time will be again

    From what I saw of the cork u 20 against offaly they were overly physical and the aggressors, gave young screening dogs abuse and the full back took the head off the center forward and should've being sent off. O connor and Curran were liked caged animals on the line. So your pontificating of cork bringing back the good game is based on the elements your whining about which is a bit ironic don't you think

    He thinks that Cork play a certain way because of some magic historical "Corkness" not any sort of reality.

    Cork are also the worst county by far for the run and throw/excessive steps game that's rampant in hurling at the minute. I don't think a Cork player at any level has hit a legitimate hand-pass in years. The entire way the hurl is based around the possession game these days. Other counties at least try and vary it, but Cork seem to stick rigidly to it. And that lack of variation in their play has arguably what tripped them up over the past few years at senior, especially when other sides kind of out their HB and midfield.

    Not that they're alone in it, every team is at the throwing of the ball, but unlike other counties that try something different every so often, Cork seem to have their entire game plan built around the run and throw possession game, which is hardly the most skillful form of hurling. The idea that Cork play a more skillful form of hurling is simply delusional at best. It's no co-incidence that Cork have improved in recent years with the move towards the possession game and the abandonment by refs of the steps/throw rules as it suits the way they "hurl".
