Just looking at the Ladies All Ireland Football Final--very good attendance. Dublin have been denied what appeared to all and sundry to be a point--the umpire signalled a wide.
There was no hawk eye--apparently it is too costly to provide it for this game.
The attendance is over 44 thousand.
What a shower.

Too expensive?
Last weekend's All Ireland final draw has euro signs written all over it for the GAA.

You mean the GAA that has absolutely ZERO responsibility or control over ladies football, a sport organized under the direction of the LGFA? That GAA?
So that would be the same one that has made fields all over the country available , given up office space , collaborated on grant aid and provided repeated overtures to merge the LGFA and camogie associations with the association proper. To no avail in large part IMO because LGFA officials would suddenl have the same "rank" as any other sub committee or , at club and county level , any code or age grade specific (I.e old Galway hurling board, or the minor boards that exist in many counties) sub-board.
But you're right the ignorant and quick to complain will no doubt blame Aoghan & co

From speaking to people involved in cricket coverage the big expense involved in implementing Hawkeye is the setup and calibration. That's because cricket piches can be on any location on a cricket square. Thus, they tend to use fixed pitches for games where hawkeye will be used, with equivalent fixed points for the equipment.

The circumstances which apply to a ground such as Croker would appear to be fixed in place; there is no need to move the gear 5 yards to the right or left and to recalibrate it all over.

As I understand the Ladies GFA chose not to use it. Hey but don't do anything like establishing the facts before engaging in a rant.

Ladies GAA are not part of the GAA , the GAA give them the use of Croke park at almost zero cost levels as well as other stadia throughout the country over the year and yet people give out about how mean they are to the ladies.

Also as it is a different association which plays the game under different rules , Hawkeye has not bee passed to adjudicate on score in ladies football , so even if they did have it in operation today could not use it officially.

Cork win by a point--should have been a draw--Dublin were robbed because of the unavailability of hawkeye

But that is not the GAA'S fault , they will make nothing out of todays game as they heavily subsidise(and rightly so) the rent of the ground to both Camogie and Ladies Football association.

The Ladies Football association will make a good profit out of today , it is their choice to pay for Hawkeye or not in Croke Park games.
