Yesterday in Croke Park was a disgrace.
I recommend you all read Tom Humphries in today's Irish Times. He sums the whole thing up much better than I can.
After ten minutes of complete thuggery from what I can only call Aussie scumbags, we lost four, four of our better players. We only had three on the interchange bench after that.
At one stage, there was a mini-riot taking place when some of the Australians went on the attack (with the ball this time) and scored a goal and, despite the fight going on, the goal was allowed!
Then Sean Boylan told the players he didn't want them to play on after the first quarter. I can't say I blame him in a way but still, that wasn't the sort of thing they needed to hear.
After that, the Aussies beat us soundly. That's the strangest part of it all. They would have beat us without resorting to the shit they pulled.
Our shooting was terrible; there's no excuse for it.
Alan summed it up the best. When this circus started, they had the advantage of the tackle and we had the advantage of the round ball. But now, we still can't get the hang of the tackle but they've not only gotten the hang of the round ball, they're better than us with it.
My solution is, get rid of the mark. Then we might see some flow to the damn game.
The Aussies are motherfucking, goddamn, scumbag knackers. They shouldn't be let back in the country. That they die roaring.
The referees were a joke. Not a set of balls between the four of them. How in the name of holy hell was there not one red card used yesterday? What do you have to do to get sent off in this game? Shoot someone? It's a damn good thing I didn't have a gun yesterday.
Our shots for overs were absolutely awful but I can't criticise the lads too much; that wasn't football out there.
All in all, a rather shit day at the office.
It looks like the GAA wanna pull the plug on the whole thing. I don't want that to happen. When it's played right, it's a good game. And I like the idea of GAA players getting to play for their country. But why does it have to be the Australians? They're wankers.
I'll leave the last word to Sheedy, the Australian coach,
- I think Ireland were the aggressors last week and this week.
Yup, folks, that's the mentality we're dealing with.
