    “After no drawn final since 1959, hurling has produced three drawn All-Irelands in a row.”

    What are the chances?

    I’ll say it again, why not play extra time?
    Don’t give me the lame story that the player’s are tired.

    GAA – you have enough money, let the people who paid for their tickets once get their money’s worth.

      they have extra time for peil, so why not hurling. the final yesterday could have went on another 20 mins no bother, it was a shame to end such a fantastic game without a winner.

        They don’t have extra time for peil for a drawn first meeting. If the hurling is a draw the next day, there’ll be extra time. If the football final is a draw, there’ll be a replay.

      While I agree that there should be replays, You obviously didn’t watch that match if you think people didn’t get their moneys worth.

      Actually, Having thought about it, Yesterday is a pretty good argument AGAINST replays.

      Both teams played incredibly well and neither deserved to lose.

      It has absolutely nothing to do with spectators. If the game was played in an empty field, it would be the same. The teams are playing to win a competition, of people turn up to watch that, that’s completely beside the point.

    There was no flaw, the linesman signaled the wide before hawk eye was used. The ref bowed to crowd pressure by using it which isn’t a bad thing.

      I think, on reflection, this is probably the dumbest thing I’ve read today. And I just had a quick look at the journal.

      I’m happy to have the excuse as an expat to sit down on a Sunday with all sorts discovering and loving the hurling and a few scoops. . great atmosphere.. and now I get to do it again in two weeks.

    the match was so passionate and so good, that i actually cried once or twice while watching it. i was crazy hungover too tho, which aided the tears. but still. such a great game.
