It was a weekend of plenty of on and off the field drama in the Allianz National Leagues.
With two red cards and a defeat that saw them slip into the bottom two of the top flight, Mayo manager James Horan had plenty to mull over after the loss to Monaghan in Clones.
However in the post-match briefing, Horan was asked about the personal abuse some of his players had been subject to abuse on social media during the week.
Horan insisted he hadn't been aware of it and sought to move on from the issue but it seems the world of GAA isn't immune from the curse of the keyboard warriors.
As the Mayo boss put it: "That says a lot about the people who are doing it so."
Galway's brilliant performance in the win over Tyrone may get lost in the news that Cathal McShane is facing a lengthy period out after picking up a bad ankle injury.
But it's worth pointing out that Padraic Joyce's men produced a brilliant attacking performance in Tuam.
With Shane Walsh calling the tune, GAA.ie reporter Cian O'Connell pointed out that Galway's tally of 2-25 came from just 34 shots with eight different players getting on the scoresheet.
It looks like there's potential for a big summer ahead for the Tribesmen.
The Limerick hurlers are making all the right noises and hit six of the last eight points to record a first win at Páirc Uí Chaoimh since 2001.
However it wasn't all good news for John Kiely, who confirmed afterwards that 2018 All-Star defender Richie English would miss the remainder of the season after picking up a cruciate knee ligament injury.
"Richie English unfortunately has picked up a cruciate knee ligament injury so his involvement this season has unfortunately come to an end," he said.
"We will look after him and he will get the best of care in the weeks and months ahead and he has the full support of the management team and the panel of players - Richie is a real solid guy and he will bounce back from this."
This weekend in Croke Park, delegates at Congress will decide whether to introduce a black card to hurling but after the weekend some high-profile pundits and managers felt there was a more pressing issue given the way some of the games were officiated.
In Croke Park on Saturday night, Davy Fitzgerald described his Wexford side's win over Dublin as "probably one of the most frustrating games I have ever been involved in. You just couldn't get a flow in the game.”
Dermot Crowe reported in the Irish Independent that during that game, Limerick referee Johnny Murphy had "issued 13 yellow cards, three reds and blown for somewhere in the vicinity of 50 frees".
Down in Cork, the game was similarly scrappy with Aaron Gillane and Patrick Horgan scoring a combined 0-26 from placed balls.
"92 frees in the best two surfaces in the country — Croke Park and Páirc Uí Chaoimh between 50 and 42. Do we want that?" asked Anthony Daly on League Sunday.
