It was FA Cup Third Round week­end and we even had a lit­tle bit of that famed ‘magic’ as League Two New­port County downed Premier League out­fit Le­ices­ter City...

Thanks so much for all the mes­sages from last night. I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate them all. Been a men­tal 24 hours!

The new play­ing rules be­ing tri­alled in the pre-sea­son com­pe­ti­tions con­tin­ued to stir up con- tro­versy...

24 goals af­ter two rounds of McKenna Cup (12 games). At the same stage last year, there were 47 goals. So yeah, man­agers are ab­so­lutely right about it cost­ing teams goals. Maybe their opin­ions should be val­ued the odd time?

The more games I see the more the 3 hand pass rule has to go! Break­ing down so many great moves that are cut­ting packed de­fences open! The art of off the shoul­der run­ning, cre­at­ing an­gles and com­ing at pace get­ting pe­nalised con­sis­tently!

Steven Poacher @Ste­vie_Poacher

Done­gal blown up twice in the first 15 min­utes for a fourth hand pass while try­ing to break down a packed Down de­fence.. Down de­nied a great goalscor­ing chance be­cause the for­ward made the right de­ci­sion and slipped a 4th hand pass. Get rid & let the game evolve nat­u­rally please!

Goal dis­al­lowed due to 4 hand passes lol nice move that to de­crease goals mak­ing our game even more bor­ing !!!! #gaa #wex­ford #straw­ber­rys

Gay Camp­bell @gay­camp­bell15

The new gaa rules aren’t do­ing any­thing for me, if any­thing they slow the game down and en­cour­age the blan­ket

Bernard Flynn @bernard­flynn15

Kil­dare 1-5 West­meath 0-7 h/t de­cent game for the con­di­tions @west­meath_­gaa @Kil­dareGAA but the 3 hand pass rule a killer

Shane Smith @ShaneSmith197

This week­end be­tween the @ drm­cken­nacup and the o Byrne cup there were 5 goals in 5 games. Last years O Byrne cup for ex­am­ple there were 12 goals in the first 5 games. New hand­pass rule hav­ing im­pact on goal scor­ing, mak­ing our game less en­ter­tain­ing. #obyrnecup #GAA #rules

David Al­ford @davi­dal­ford1

First Mon­aghan game of the year con­firms what I al­ready knew. The 3 hand pass rule is ab­so­lutely chronic. Twice in the game two great moves which would’ve ended in goal chances were blew up for a 4th hand­pass is that what @ of­fi­cial­gaa want to see? #BOIMcKen­naCup #GAA
