The writing on Ian Madigan's wall and let Gooch be Gooch - It's Comments of the Week

Did you make the cut?

IT’S BEEN ANOTHER busy week of sport at home and abroad.

Here’s the best of what you lot had to say.

Kerry finally ended Dublin’s two-year unbeaten run in the Allianz Football League Division 1 final last Sunday at Croke Park. Jamie noticed there were less Dubs expressing their opinions than usual:

There most be a problem with the phone masts in Dublin tonight as there’s not many on here commenting compared to usual after a game involving Dublin.
Donal O Cofaigh certainly enjoyed the Kerry victory:
That was so sweet today , to watch the hill go from 100 to 0 in 3.2 seconds will stay with me for a while sweeeeeeettt.

Bristol confirmed on Tuesday that Jason Harris-Wright will follow Pat Lam’s path and join the club, following in the footsteps of Tyler Gendall, Nick Haining, Reiss Cullen and Ian Madigan.

It prompted Peter Brophy to ask:

Did Madigan know they would be relegated before signing up?

And Conor Paddington hit back with a zinger:

Humans broadly can’t see the future, but the writing was on the wall.

A couple of past and future Kerry senior forwards have been in the news this week as Colm Cooper’s legacy was debated, while David Clifford shot 1-4 for the county minors in their easy win over Clare. DJ Cronin is sick of all the comparisons:

Any chance that David Clifford can be David Clifford, Colm Cooper can stay Colm Cooper and Peter Canavan, Maurice Fitzgerald and Mikey Sheehycan remain themselves too and we can just enjoy them all for what they are!

Tommy Walsh appeared on TG4′s Laochra Gael this week and bob wilbury fondly remembers the Kilkenny legend.

One of the greatest ever to hold a hurl.legend is a word to often used and tommy is a real one
