Yes, the youth are not watching. And if they are, there is such a choice that they usually spend on a short length of time on your channel. RTE still commands the attention of older viewers. Problem is they are a dying breed. An older viewers are not ones for spending. Hence advertisers are not attracted.

Most have taken a drop in wages since this article. But you look at the spoofers and the wages they commanded! Crazy!

RTE is on the way out! The way people watch TV or their interest in TV is different.

Like the decline in Newspapers sales, People don't depend on RTE News to know what is going on nationally or internationally!

Both Seamie and Aido were injured! Seamie played the All Ireland Replay with a torn groin AFAIK. Aido got injured playing Basketball. No point in rushing them back? We know what they have to offer and giving squad players game time is more important. It's all about getting ready for the Summer!

Aido was playing Basketball pre-christmas. I was told he was encouraged by Management to play. The theory is it could improve his control and laying off the ball in tight situations.

Did Mayo find any new scoring forwards so far this year ?

Did ye find any defenders? We'll do a swap?

Just checked there. Mayo's recent McHale Park record is awful!

Looking at 2015/2016/2017

Mayo have played 10 games at home

We have won three - Monaghan (15), Down (16) and Roscommon (17)

We have lost 6 and drawn 1.

On the road during that period is Played 9 Won 5 Lost 4.

Yer lucky ye have us in the Connacht final in McPrenty Park so.

I was talking about the League!  ;)

Do mayo fans realise that when cavan attached with no speed on occasion, Mayo got the exact same amount of players behind the ball. Every team is doing it, there was nothing extraordinary about how cavan set up today. Mayo just seemed very low on pace and urgency to me.

In fairness Mayo played more open than Cavan! There was never going to be a one on one high ball played into the Cavan goalmouth. The way to beat Cavan today was to mimic Cavan. When Mayo were 5 points up they should have shut up shop and let Cavan do the running. Instead they played like a team who were behind.

Mayo have been sh*te in the league now for almost 7 years. To top it off McHale road is no fortress for us. The themes we are debating today have been the same themes in other league campaigns. We have had a lot of luck staying up over that period. Our luck could run out this year. (And it might not be the end of the world!)

No need for mass dropping of players (yet). But there has to be a bit of courage shown from the line. The blanket defense is here to stay. We played Tyrone at their own game last August. But for what ever reason we see ourselves as above doing the same against Galway, Monaghan and (now) Cavan!

I do understand that Mayo training is scattered at this time of the year. With a lot of the players living outside the county. Preparing for games can be difficult. We have been sh*te in the League year in year out since  2010, Just surviving relegation on many occasions, it's just the way it has been for us.

One bonus from today's result is that any talk of a League final have been put to bed. The Championship is all that matters and wasting energy on trying to win the league is not an option.

Were Mayo not already supposed to be hurting from the manner of their capitulation to Dublin today?

Mayo have their very Division 1 survival at stake it seems after that most recent submission, bring it on! :D

Oh, the excitement!  :)

Maybe Mayo did a lot of heavy training during the week.

Maybe they did a bit of training on Friday afternoon after the parade.

Maybe Cavan did their homework, had a plan and showed discipline in sticking to it?

It's any 2 from 4 to get into the league final whilst it's 1 from 3 to see who joins Roscommon in division 2 next season. Cavan give themselves a lifeline today with a good performance to beat Mayo. It's probably the first time Cavan have beaten a top county in recent years and could be a breakthrough win. They have to beat Kerry next to give themselves a chance of staying in the division.
If they beat Roscommon in the last game and Mayo only manage a point from Tyrone and Donegal they might stay up anyway.
Can't see Mayo getting a point from either to be honest.

Full of optimism as per usual Farr! ;)

Relegation might not be the worse thing?

Mayo are in a team in transition - We are transitioning back to Mayo circa 2007-2010!

In fairness, if we were playing Tyrone in Castlebar. I'd give us no chance! We are stink at home in the League!

Well done Cavan. Had a plan! Kept their discipline and deserved their victory. Mayo started well and looked like they could pull away in the first half. The lack of tactical awareness in dealing with the situation was worrying. This game was a carbon copy of the Monaghan game and only a fool would have not expected such a game. We chased the game game when we were leading by 5 points! Very naive! We should have sat back and played them at their own game. Mayo player looked very tired near the end.

With last nights results the table is wide open again.
You would expect Monaghan to join the top 3 today all on 7 points.
Donegal have showed so far they are not just a team in transition and are a very tough team to beat at home.
Their home match to Monaghan should be a cracker.

You would expect the Dubs to make the final but it's still very up for grabs who they will play.

How many games will Donegal play at home in the Championship?
How many will Dublin get to play at home? Will Dublin be asked to play away from home from the League final to the AI Final?
