I'd be more worried about Kerry's easy route through Munster...what a bloody joke that is.

RTE going down the tubes....bland and sterile. I don't agree with Brolly but like Dunphy you need someone to disagree with on tv. Brian Carty is an excellent commentator...sad to see him being axed. My guess is a new female commentator will be coming in down the line for "balance"

Replying To kiloughter:  "Absolutely. And it does not matter who Dublin play be it Kerry, Mayo or whoever. Winning becomes routine. Sat night would have that type of crowd whoever Dub would be playing."
Would have been at least double there if Mayo were playing Dublin sat night mate and you know it.

"Why Should Anybody Have The God-Given Right To See All Games On Television?" - 16 Like(s)
Just because something was not available years ago, doesent mean we should be happy to go back to the system. I have a family member in hospital and had to listen to the Mayo v Donegal game on radio, many people in the ward would liked to have seen that game but hospitals don't have sky naturally enough when they don't even have enough beds... Fact is quarter finals used to be always free to air and now aren't.

GAA Keeping Rural Ireland Alive - 14 Like(s)
As I write this, the new Leinster club champions Mullinalaghta have just appeared on the late late show and well done to them. They have given hope to clubs up and down the country. It was interesting to listen to their captain speak about the post office gone, shop, one pub closed and one left etc....however the GAA club is the ever constant. My club wouldn't be much bigger and I'd imagine it's a case in every county where most clubs are rural, with services and people disappearing. So for all the giving out we do just be thankful that we are all part of a fantastic organization, far from flawless and at times extremely frustrating but it's ours all the same and it's keeping communities alive.

Replying To StopTheLights:  "Mayo are nothing if not consistent, I'll give you that. Mayo and Dublin are the two teams who give us exactly what we expect year in year out. Not the type of consistency I'd be drawing attention to."
Well Dublin's consistency is that of winning and winning in style, playing the game the right way. Mayo have a loosing final streak that is not pretty but more importantly a consistency of getting back up and keeping at it...never throwing in the towel. So your comment that it's a consistency you would not be drawing attention to is wrong. You haven't a clue.

Anti GAA Agenda - 13 Like(s)
I don't subscribe to the Dublin media jibe as many of those working in national media in Dublin are from all over the maybe highlights what Dublin GAA also have to fight against in contrast to their other advantages. Fact is there are Hundreds of thousands of people living in Dublin who don't like or care about the GAA and wouldn't even know All Ireland final day....perfect example being I had to give two Dublin rugby lads directions to Croke Park a few years back. I don't think they ever crossed O'Connell bridge. Agree if GAA is shut down then league of Ireland and all underage etc should be inc rugby. There is an arrogance from every sport, inc GAA as to why our sport is superior. Just look at Johnny Sextons comments yesterday saying the whole country will be watching the Italy game...well I won't be. I'll be switching between Roscommon v Cavan and Kerry v Donegal.

Replying To oldsam_newsam:  "Well maybe we can agree that you wont have a good laugh at Meath's current woes and I wont point out the difference in levels of success over the years. And just to be clear, I do not make any sort of a habit of gloating on here . However, I wont take people laughing at us and the slagging of our manager that has gone on here. Andy has complained after some of the games - maybe he shouldn't have but he was damn well entitled to after the last couple of home games. I look forward to the game in Monaghan - I will certainly be there irrespective of the result against the Dubs."
Grow up will ya...everyone gets stick on this forum..."they are laughing at us".....well yeah they are but suck it up. That's life .

Dublin V Mayo - 13 Like(s)

Replying To TheFlaker:  "For sure and I think the same. I was responding to people who were not happy from your own county who have been fairly silent on his nonsense in the past."
Not even silent...some Dublin "fan" pages have lapped it up. When the shoe is on the other foot they don't like it.

Firstly congrats to Limerick today on another Munster title...what a team and what a manager they have. Just after a big final win, John backs his squad players unable to attend the game. He is 100% right. All panel members should be allowed to attend. It's ridiculous. Load of media there when half them aren't needed. A huge stadium and neither team can bring more than the allocated numbers which means players training all year miss out. We had the same ridiculous situation in club games this year, lads missing out outside the match day 24. Time for government to address this.

Gough Speaks Out Against Shamefull Slurs - 12 Like(s)
I'll put it this way..would a referee living in Castlebar get a final involving Mayo..? Or a ref living in Killarney get a final involving Kerry? Has a Connacht referee ever referred a final involving a Connacht county?

Could it prove to be.. - 12 Like(s)

Replying To theduke66:  "Yeh once it was kicked dead Dublin had the chance to set up and defend which they didn't do very well. Also I saw cillian o Connor going mad looking for a free ( what's new! ) from cluxtons kick out, not sure was it for a pick up or the clash with bastic ."
Was it not a straight pick up? I watched it back last night again and it was a straight pick up of the ground. Then again il admit I saw Andy Moran pick the ball of the ground in the build up to one of our scores so it evens itself out over the course of a game.

Kerry V Dublin - 12 Like(s)

Replying To Belclare:  "They put it up to Dublin all day, Dublin very lucky to get the draw. If Dublin didn't have an absolute rarity in Jack Mc Caffrey the best scoring wing back ever seen on All Ireland final day they would be finished. Fenton lorded it in the semi against poorer players but David Moran is a colosses.. Some replay in store.."
Fenton has already proved it over da years. Are players not allowed an off day. People jump da gun after one's the clueless mob mentality

2019 Attendances - 12 Like(s)

Replying To OpenStand:  "Only tickets for lower levels on sale at present ? Doesn't indicate a massive crowd been expected to travel to Dublin from the regions . Still reckon moving the fixture from Thurles to Dublin will have halved the amount from Limerick and Waterford in attendance . Also Kerry in particular will not travel for a league final to Dublin despite the fact Kerry could get 12,000 in Tralee or Killarney for a home league game ."
Don't really know why limerick and Waterford fans are both have a motorway all the way to also don't make many finals. Limerick are all Ireland champs so should bring a big crowd. Mayo fans will be left again to save the attendance
