Made a balls of what? 2 of the most outrageous, unstoppable pieces of bad fortune ever to happen in an All-i final? Let’s not drag this up again, to blame Mayo backs for those two goals is ridiculous.
My point anyway was they managed to salvage a draw despite those hammer blows, and despite being 3 points down on 70 minutes. Any other team was beaten, except Dublin. In a low-scoring game on a wet day they got 15 scores, Dublin got 11, two of which were undeserved freaks. Revisionism of the winners is alive and well.
Would they have won if those goals didn’t go in? That’s a whole other discussion but based on the evidence of the game itself they deserved to win
