In 2017, multiple teams exceeded expectations, and suffered unexpected dropoffs. In this article, we look into how far some fell, and how much others improved over the course of the year.
Cathal and Brian wrap up the first season of podcasts by looking back over the 2017 season. Which teams got better? Which teams got worse? And who will win the various 'TYDP Things of the Year' awards, possibly the most prestigious titles in all of Gaelic games?
In a bittersweet episode, Cathal and Brian discuss the end of the All-Ireland, and Galway's win over Waterford. On top of this, there's also more general GAA news, as Offaly get the hero they deserve, and information about what's next for the podcast and the website, as we hesitantly enter the off-season.
It's nearly time for the All-Ireland final, so Cathal and Brian get into how each team made it this far, and who we're tipping to win it all. Before all that though, there's also discussion of the last semi-final, a political episode of Cork Flag Watch and needless animal/county comparisons.
In this episode, Cathal and Brian discuss the result of one semi final, and look forward to the other. A quest for filler also begins, as with so few matches, they find themselves with no option but to bash Offaly hurling yet again.
After taking some time to grieve over Clare's departure, Brian and Cathal get into discussing other notable departures following this season, who they'll be cheering for now that their home county is out, and a look forward to the first semi-final match.
A huge amount to discuss this week, as we enter the final stages of the All-Ireland! Cathal and Brian discuss Munster teams winning every game last week, including the Munster final, and look forward to the quarter finals. Mystery, betrayal, and even more flag discussion: we had to make this episode twice the length just to pack it all in.
Cathal and Brian discuss far too many matches this week, and an extra long episode is the result. Featuring an urgent appeal for the midlands, confusing silent x's and blatant home-county bias!
Apologies for some lingering audio issues, which were minimised as much as possible.
This week, Cathal and Brian discuss the surprisingly interesting clash between Carlow and Laois, the feasability of creating a Megazord in the midlands, the technical differences between a comfy win and a hammering, and the three steps Tipperary must follow if they hope to have a chance against Westmeath.
Cathal and Brian discuss the events of the remaining provincial semi-finals, try to explain various flags using a non-visual medium, and lose faith in the scallion eaters.
