Kerry V Dublin

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


The county system as we know it is down to the English crown trying to streamline its milking the country for taxation purposes. That said, it does match many if not all previous lines of affiliation before then. In other words, you can have a lot of craic following your country- but don't let it go to your head.

As for the here and now, I know some like to spice their GAA with a great dollop of badmouthing the opposition but I'll pass. Win, lose or draw on September 1st, life will go on. If Kerry do manage to down "the blue machine" well then good. If not then fair play to them for doing what no team at the senior grade has ever managed to do. From a Kerry perspective, let's hope it doesn't come to yhat though!

Replying To reithi:  "I find in most big games Dublin seem to start slow it's like they weight the opposition up or maybe just let them burn themselves out and blunt themselves on them then wham! You'd never feel comfortable even 7- 8 pts up on Dublin. Dublin 4 or 5 pts up you feel game over, other way it seems a fragile lead!!"
I really feel that this Kerry team would put Dublin away if they built up that kind of lead after 40 mins or so. DUBLIN'S subs bench is not what it was. I dont think Kevin Mc has that awesome ability to beat his man that he once had. Time catches up.

Replying To TheHermit:  "Well that pint glass does exist don't know what's BS about it or what the 'victim generation or whatever that is has to do with it.

You seem oddly upset over a simple post about a piece of sporting memorabilia.

Have you bought your 5 in a row t-shirt yet, might even pick one up myself when I'm in Dublin :)"
A pint glass ? Ok, if you say so.
I'd imagine you have more reason to be sore about you're bottling in the past than any glasses ;D.

Replying To 37sowhat:  "Don't judge all by the actions of the few I know several Kerry people admirers of this great Dublin group and with the advent of anti- social media any 'resentido' can spout ad nauseam Truth or logic don't count If Dublin win hats off to them BT I think they will know that they are in a game"
YOU'e right of course i reacted when i shouldnt have. I do realise you can't tar everybody with the one brush. But i do believe this Dublin team's achievements are special and there is a lot of begrudgery and blatant anti-Dubllin feeling fueling the seeming coherent arguments about populatio etc.
I think this final will be hatd fought and very close. I still have the scars from the 70s right up to 2011. I know what a Kerry team in full spate can do . I watched in horror as the great 70s Dublin team were demolished and then had to face my Dad waiting at home gloating. A Kerry flag hung out our window and the house became a target for egg throwing bootboys for the rest of September. Not nice. :-D

With all the talk of how injuries can effect the a teams progress through the championship I do feel that Dublin have been lucky in that respect. If they lost Mannion, Fenton and o Callaghan I would make Kerry slight favorites. I suppose their conditioning reduces the chance of injury

I'm really looking forward to this game in two weeks, I'm privileged to have a ticket and what better place to spend your Sunday .
It's going to be a day where history will either be made by a brilliant dublin team or stopped by my beloved kerry .
I have a good feeling about this final , I can't explain it in words it's just a crazy feeling that I've had on big final days n the past.

And in the process managed to consistently demonstrate a lack of understanding of what irony actually meant.

Now THAT's ironic, don't ya think?

And the ironic thing is a lot of the thing Alanis sang about in that song were not ironic at all .

Speaking of songs I heard yer 8 in a row song today, sad to say it's not great.

Jesus I heard it. It's an embarrassment. Could they not have got something better?
Yeah, if I recall, Alannis thought a fly in her Chardonnay was ironic.
That's not ironic...that's just a pain in the hoop.

That's true , once I had a stingy bee in my pint of bulmers and I didn't find it ironic , I just fished him out with a beermat.

The Gaa are at fault for picking him in the first place, one or two Kerry people in the media highlighted the obvious concerns over his appointment when asked about it, simple as that.

If it was us going for 5 in a row and a ref with strong links to Kerry was appointed the exact same questions would be asked. Even though of course that appointment would never happen but the dubs are treated different to everyone else as we all know at this stage.

I think he more or less acknowledged they were rumours.

'Its like 10,000 spoons, when all you need is a knife'

Not Ironic Alanis. Just a ridiculously disproportionate cutlery set
