Just watched the game (RTE version). Jez, Dessie Dolan just says little or nothing. Feck me! He goes silent when there is something controversial happening.

Yes I was amazed myself when I found out that was the rule! There are a lot of (the so called top) referees out there who never apply that rule!

Re the penalty incident ..... here is the rule

"If, during the advantage period, another foul is committed against the team which received the original advantage, then a free kick/puck will be awarded for the "second" foul if it is considered more advantageous than the original"

No matter what way you slice and dice the incident, it should have been a penalty.

blast, did you get that from the actual rule book or was it just some randomer on the internet? What's the exact section?

I'm not saying you are not right, because I don't know for sure, but I definitely seen rules quoted before which did not agree with that. I have countless times seen advantages end because the player with the ball was fouled again and the ref always brings it back to the first foul.

Without doubt, the rule should be as you have laid it out. But just not sure it is.

Foul Subsequent to Advantage Award


If, during the advantage period, a foul is committed by a player of the team which was originally fouled then the advantage
is cancelled and a free kick/puck awarded for the “second” foul.
If, during the advantage period, another foul is committed against the team which received the original advantage, then a
free kick/puck will be awarded for the “second” foul if it is considered more advantageous than the original.

I wouldn't read most of the nonsense posted here by ignorance hate filled fools.

Dublin's toughest match this decade, and still came out on top, all odds stacked against them, the country against them and still did it. Heart and passion with naturally gifted skill that cant be developed. Role models, gentlemen, proper Gaels, good GAA and club men, led by a great General. Greatest team of all time, it wont last forever but will always been in the history books. Setting the standard on and off the pitch how to go about being great.

Hard luck Mayo, highest scoring losing finalists ever, did everything right and unlucky, you lost by 1 to the greatest team ever. Heads up, go again, what else can you do.

All odds stacked against them - Give me a break!

Money can't buy commitment,composure,discipline and determination,the four basic qualities Dublin had yesterday to see them home.Jim Gavin must now be considered the best manager of all time.But for an uncharacteristic miscalculation against Donegal in 2014, he would already be celebrating five in a row.Had he been manager of Mayo yesterday,I have no doubt they would have won.

Money can buy all of the above. It can buy the people to set up the above structures. As for the tactical Substitutions. Jez, how many county teams can bring on players of the caliber of Paul Flynn, Diarmuid Connolly, Kevin McManamon,Bernard Brogan, Niall Scully and Cormac Costello. It's easy make these calls when the players are there.

Dublin won the All Ireland by a point yesterday after looking for much of the game as though they would lose it. So your congratulations and best wishes lads are much appreciated.

The winning point was scored by Dean Rock the son of an All Ireland winner. The RTÉ man of the match was James McCarthy the son of another All Ireland winner. Now there's no way these lads would be playing Gaelic Football if it wasn't for the money.

Now we are putting it down to Genetics! The denial takes a new twist!

The treatment Rock got in the lead up to taking the final free was shocking. The Mayo supporters and 2 nearest players behaved disgracefully.

Well said. Talk all you want about the Dubs, at least we don't two-facedly play the tragic victim card while at the same time constantly showing a lack of class in booing opposition free-takers.

It's hard to feel sorry for Mayo fans.

Seeing we are on the high victory moral ground, Any comment on O'Gara's Gauge or Face rake?

Nice of RTE to miss the teams coming out onto the field due to their yapping and then to talk over the trophy presentation too.

Was not taking any notice but a friend said that Mayo came onto the field without any Music over the PA, Music was blaring out with the introduction of Dublin. Like the way a home team in Soccer does the same.

Just home. Words can't begin to describe the disappointment I feel....not for myself or the the supporters but for that bunch of players. The temptation for some will be to start singling out individuals for blame for isolated incidents. I think that would be unfair. If we were to look at the commentary and forecasting over the past few months this Mayo team had no chance. Yet again they had this great (and I mean that sincerely) Dublin team on the ropes. Top marks to all, including management, for a great season. The inability to finish scoring opportunities is all that stood between the teams. We need to hold what we have and blood some new players over the FBD and League. If management remain on (and I see no reason why they wouldn't) they need to rest some experienced players, cut those from the panel that they obviously have no faith in and bring in a half dozen or more big athletic footballers. Don't write our obituary yet.


Mayo are far from finished. Was an absolute honour to have been at that game yesterday, a serious battle between 2 great teams. The speed and intensity was breathtaking . Some serious performances from both sides. McCarthy was a giant for the Dubs, he's had an incredible year. There's a good few wee things that just didn't go Mayo's way and yet there was still only the bare minimum between the teams. The 2 O'Shea's were excellent in the middle, Moran as usual this year was excellent. McLoughlin buzzing around and linking so much of the good play. Keegan, Boyle and Barrett in defence, christ you didn't even know if Kilkenny was on the field, and then Keegan pops up with the goal.
Met so many great Mayo folk yesterday, and this is another hammer blow for them and the team, but they will definitely be back next year. You can be so proud of those warriors yesterday.

Yes they are! No one can come back for the what will be an 8th year of this group together (getting to finals and semi-finals). There's only a trickle of new blood and the baggage is just to much at this stage.

Dublin is a MONSTER. Mayo bursting a gut yesterday hides how far they are ahead!

There is no All Ireland in this Mayo team simply because there is nobody remotely near Dublin on or off the pitch!

can you get much closer than a draw or 1 point games? They'll be glad you're no-where near the setup.

Mayo have not beaten Dublin in League or Championship since 2012!

Gas, as we (the poor downtrodden Mayo fans) left Croke Park. The overwhelming feeling was 'Thank God it wasn't a draw'. The Financial as well as the emotional cost was just to much and most were happy it was done and dusted. Who wants to spend more money on Petrol, Food and €80 (cos the GAA of the people don't reduce the price for replays in Football).
You mustn't have been there last year so, when the price was reduced.

PRICE OF €80 for the replay last year - No reduction and I was there! Check your facts!

No mention of financial Doping alright. It's as if the Sunday Game Panellists are afraid to mention it or there is a censorship clause with RTE!

O'Rourke trying not to sound bad has came up with the more Players in Dublin need to play inter-county line!

Home venue was shot down by Whelan when mentioned by McStay.

I noticed my to fellow Kerrymen said very little. There was a few looks and glances.

They know the score that if they mention the advantages they'll look like sore losers. In fact anyone who mentions advantages of Dublin look like sore losers.

Brolly physically looks as if he is struggling with his one kidney. And he needs a hairbrush!

To who? Dublin? the other 31 counties wouldn't be looking at them as sore losers.

But do you not realise it's Dublin that matters (and nobody else). Croke Park is their home Pitch. The majority of the National media is in Dublin. Multinational, National and semi-state companies and organisations are lining up to be associated with Dublin. Any movement to say anything against the saviour of football will be met with hostility!

It's the one battle Dublin are out-numbered on, though. The rest of the CBs really need to band together and make the sport better for everyone because it's fully within their power to reign Dublin in if they find the balls to oppose the financial doping.

Sure they are the worst deniers of the lot! They'll get thrown their 20 pieces of silver and crawl back to their corner happy!
