The draw for the football quarter-finals was made on Monday morning and one thing that Cork fans aren’t happy with, especially if your from West Cork where football is a religion down there. Is the time of throw-in, 6pm for Dublin vs Cork at Croke Park on Saturday evening.
Surely this is completely unfair on the travelling support and will rule out a lot of the Cork football faithful. I don’t know to the GAA actually think about the GAA fans anymore and is just all about the TV rights and the money that goes with it..
So, Cork football fans from West Cork travelling home from Dublin after the All-Ireland SFC quarter-final (6pm throw-in in Croke Park) will leave Dublin some time after 8pm, if they're lucky, and they'll be home by Monday after spending a week's wage on petrol. pic.twitter.com/KCvKqLbgue

Would you really go the whole way up to Croke Park is your from West Cork? Especially when the rebels are really up against it.
