Replying To OhtobeARossie:  "Kilkenny beat Carlow by 14 points
Dublin beat Carlow by 12 points
Wexford beat Carlow by 15 points
Tipp beat Waterford by 18 points
Limerick beat Waterford by 20 points
Tipp beat Clare by 13 points
Cork beat Waterford by 13 points
Limerick beat Clare by 18 points
Limerick beat Tipp by 12 points
Cork beat Westmeath by 23 points
Tipp beat Laois by 10 points
And today Tipp beat Kilkenny by 14 points

It ain't the super duper competitive competition it's made out to be even tiered."
Wasn't a great year, certainly not a classic, but wasn't a bad year. But it has served up some great games, a few unexpected results, and has been won by four different teams in the last five years.

When was the last time football managed to deliver on ANY of those points.

Replying To ballydalane:  "BORDERED on arrogance? Ah stop, the most arrogant shower that ever played the game. There were very few players from that team who were likeable - Joe Deane, maybe the Newtownshandrum contingent, struggling after that."
That's your interpretation. Mine was that KK are the most arrogant and others would say Tipp. I'd have a lot of time for that Cork team.
Your own county you have a man who is happy to be called King Henry. Whats the story with that?

2 years ago Carlow had a nice run in the football and then if you go back to when Mick O'Dwyer took "lesser" teams past their normal levels, I guess Roscommons resurgence is a bit of a story, but all in all Hurling has outdone Football in both excitement and feel good stories. Laois were a great story, Limerick and Galway ending long droughts, Kilkenny overachieving in comparison to most people's expectations at the beginning of the Hurling year, etc.
