In recent years we have had more exciting and entertaining league games than the championship has provided. This weekend was a typical example with plenty of drama, excitement and upsets.
The match of the weekend was the latest instalment of the ongoing Kerry-Tyrone rivalry which has raged for most of the last decade. This time it was Tyrone who snatched the priceless league points, and the bragging rights, with the last play of the game in Omagh.
And it was the manner of Tyrone's smash-and-grab victory that may be the most important factor. If ever a team needed a major psychological boost it was Tyrone and the grin on Mickey Harte's face as he ran onto the field at the end was proof of that.
