That passage of hurling that went on for about six minutes will be a good memory for many who had the privilege to be in Semple last night.

I was listening to the commentary on the radio!! Those lads aren't biased at all!!! He was going on about the Tipp crowd not shouting Tipp Tipp Tipp!!

I was watching it on Eir and after the first 10 minutes I was going to ring Jackie Tyrell and ask him if he were around Semple would he drop in for an hour.  All came right in the end, great game.

He was talking a lot of sense the other night, must be frustratingly annoying to sit and watch those games for the likes of him and Henry, and the rest

Watched the Tipp/KK league game last night...cracking stuff.  The ref played a good role in letting them at it - play with intensity but without malice.

League hurling is reaping the rewards of improved playing surfaces...or is the weather that good this past while?

Only 5 hurling league games makes every game important...and proper order.  The football wisdom is that Cavan and Roscommon were doomed from the beginning and it looks that way, add in the fact they meet each other in Rd 7 will give us the ultimate dead-rubber if results go against both between here and then.

Hard to say who will be in the relegation playoff from the hurling, even after 4 games, although Dublin look to be worst off. The loser of Clare/Waterford would seem to be most likely to playoff with Dublin at this stage.  Of course, if Dublin manage to beat KK in Parnell Park, everything will change drastically.

Five divisions in football would certainly make things interesting
the knockout part of the hurling league gives teams a few extra games
Wexford will probably end up vs Kilkenny, who i'd say they were hoping to avoid

Interesting look back on players from last 50 years of Kilkenny hurling: http://www.kilkennypeople.ie/news/gaelic-games/253010/dj-crowned-top-cat.html

Got to say, for me, they got number one wrong, should've gone to the King.

Anyone as special as he was will always have that. Even Charlie Carter scored 1-5 in a Junior A match the other night, and hr would be categorised as good rather than great. Doesn't change my opinion on Henry though.

In fairness, every time he gets it they are throwing a saddle on him.
