Only Cork v Kerry, Dublin v Meath & Dublin v Kerry are rivalries that match Galway v Mayo.

Looking at the draw its going to be difficult to be drawn in the same group should both teams make the super 8, if Mayo beat Roscommon it can't happen.

It could happen in a semi final tho.

2500 euro to sit beside a player from mayo what a joke.
The question I have is who out of the 9 people at the table will get to sit beside the player or will they rotate the player .
To me this sound like they are pimping out the player .

It would be interesting for sure, the Connacht championship is brilliant these days with 3 division 1 teams and you could see all 3 getting to super 8s even though it will be tough on the team that loses the semifinal.

Tyrone and Armagh in the noughties was more than a rivalry. Absolutely no love lost between them.

Agreed, was there in 2004 when Armagh were beaten by Fermanagh and we beat Tyrone afterwards, seemed to be a massive rivalry there.

Tyrone v Derry was big before that, not sure whether Derry's decline has diluted that somewhat.

Cavan and Monaghan seems to be a deep-seated one as well.

Or to put it another way those who lose all irelands and those who might win all irelands!

I'm always amazed at this attitude towards Mayo from some Dublin fans. You had a team who didn't even make an All Ireland Final in 16 years and had some heartbreaking near misses along the way. There used to be jokes if Dublin played Mayo in an All Ireland Final who'd bottle it first. Now I'm not saying that this should make Dublin fans to want to see Mayo the All Ireland or anything like that but you would think there would be some understanding and a rising above the usual tired cliches when it comes to Mayo and All Ireland Finals, not for any love for Mayo, but simply by virtue of remembering their own recent history.
