Ulster football disproving southern doubters?

Despite a fine show of football against Armagh, the current Irish News poll on Tyrone’s prospects has a slight majority of pessismists (also reflected in Eastwoods current odds). Check out last night’s Sports Call (sound file) for good natured criticism of the referee in last Sunday’s semi final. One Armagh caller suggests that the Kerry Cork semi was like a county vs a club team in comparison, and hopes Ulster football has proved its class to the doubters and begrudgers. The initial signs are hopeful.
