really enjoyed the game, daughter loved it said it was fantastic, she was literally on the edge of her seat all the way through.
i was worried by the way kildare could easily create a pocket by direct running drawing players to the runner and leaving a kildare player behind. pass the ball back, point. happened too often, but i guess its better to happen yesterday than in august or september.
Very impressed by Bernard Brogan, showed hunger all the way through, and took his scores better than i have seen him do in a long time.
Con was very very good, but we have covered him well on this thread. Philly did well, it was the right thing to do and take him off at the time, thought he aggrivated his back on landing during a tackle.
Kevin mc was getting a lot of stupid off the ball stuff from the kildare defender, for no reason at all. umpires werent doing anything about it either.
the applause was not noticed where we were till the 7th min and was barely done.
one annoying thing was that we almost didnt get in because i had my daughters computer tablet thing in the bag. bag checker said that they cuoldnt allow anything bigger than an i phone in to stop people recording the matches. The stupidity of such a thought is beyond me. I asked was it ok to being in my camera, sure. That can record all the match as well, i pointed out. So can an i phone or any phone. They let me in on the promise i wouldnt take it out (or the tablet) but the fact that i had to argue the point makes you realise that whoever is making these rules really needs to get into the 21st century pronto.
