We are THERE. Try to keep up.

BTW has anyone else noticed the number of kits etc. incorporating the sky blue where it never appeared before? Looking for a "rub of the Blue" no doubt. You gotta love winning.

Replying To KY4SAM2015:  "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."
Outline the obvious concerns, I am fascinated what they are.

You'd have to laugh at the propaganda by the usual triumvirate of Dublin posters on another thread - apparently the Co. Board, the Kerry team and the supporters are all at each others throats over Gough's appointment. It's thrown our preparations into chaos and the players will never recover in time now!

Hah, no fear the Chinese authorities asking ye to take charge of their media campaign against Hong Kong anyway lads ;D

The reality of course is that the Co. Board went about what they had to do very efficiently and very effectively in releasing a strong endorsement of Gough to nip that in the bud and then getting O'Brien's black card successfully appealed.
Peter Keane and his players are safety cocooned from all this social media 'hysteria' and are quietly concentrating all energy on the task at hand.
There is zero expectation and zero pressure on them. They are not responsible for Dublin being on the verge of the magic 5 and everyone down in Kerry knows its too much an ask to expect a team in it's first year to somehow defend Kerry's record here. All we want is for our new young team to give it their all and die with their boots on

Meanwhile the Dublin players can escape to Clare on hurling final weekend when the media's gaze is elsewhere but things are going to seriously ratchet up from now as they come back to the Capital! They're the lads that will be walking past shops stacked with 5 in a Row memorabilia, they're the ones listening to those God awful 5 in a row songs blaring out the radios, they're the ones meeting punters on busy streets telling them it's already a done deal and reading every commentator in Ireland telling them these Kerry teenagers won't get within 12 points of them.
For the next two weeks all they will be hearing, from every corner outside of training is, 'it's in the bag lads, 5 in a row, in the bag'.

How does that song go again, 'I like to wait to see how things turn out when you apply some pressure'...

You'd have to laugh at coming up with a tin foul hat wearing conspiracy theory regarding O'Briens black card appeal bring dragged out on purpose to help ensure Dublin win #5 only for him to be cleared a matter of hours later..

There are many non Dubs also sharing their opinion on the self serving character assassination attempt of a match official by prominent Kerry GAA men in the national media

Why only choose to focus on the Dublin posters?

There are plenty of GAA people not overly impressed with the noise coming out of Kerry.

And really., who can blame them.

What's a tin foul hat jim? Is that something the Dublin players will be wearing to foul our players without getting caught?

This post sums up the Kerry propaganda very well never mind Dublin's. You're correct Dublin are going for 5 in-a-row and with it immortality.

If they fail will it be talked about in the Capital forever and a day?! In a city that has so many other distractions I'm not sure it will, but the "4 in-a-row team" will never be forgotten. If Dublin succeed will they benefit from being at the centre of the media, will it be talked about for generations, will films, books etc be produced?! You bet they will and they'll be lauded as the best ever, a team from the capital winning 5 in a row would be very lucrative for the media - especially in this media age leaving future generations talking about how good that Dublin team must have been; completly overlooking previous successes such as Kerry's 4 in a row etc.

Make no mistake Kerry people can mention this young team to the cows from home, they'll know very well what is at stake; in a way all their counties tradition is on the line, when Kerry's tradition is mentioned people will say "ahh but you never produced the best team to play the game look at that 5 in a row from Dublin".

This is a huge game for Kerry GAA, probably their biggest All Ireland final in a number of years if not ever. If this Kerry team can win next Sunday, they'll never be forgotten in the Kingdom and will go down as one of the most famous All Ireland winning teams produced by Kerry. In many ways this is a game where immortality is on the line for both teams, don't be fooled by Kerry people saying their time will come, Kerry's tradition is on the line next Sunday, their team need to produce now. Dublin GAA will forever be the most famous county if they finish this off and will use all media channels to milk it for years to come.

In fairness I think you're a bit off with the above. Dublin is the best county for its players to avoid the hype. The majority of people up here don't really care about GAA in anyways.

I remember in 2011 there was a lot of talk about hype getting to the Dubs but Denis Bastick made a point about it in an interview. He said something along the lines of any of Dublin players could walk from Parnell Sq to Stephen's Green and no one would ask them anything about the upcoming match, and that the Kerry players wouldn't be able to walk down the street at home without someone talking to them about the match. I thought it was a very good point. Basically the Dublin players are able to be anonymous up here in a way that a lot of other inter-county players can't be.

Yerra ya, a county well behind in the roll of honour will suddenly become the greatest GAA county because the one great team they produced was able to dominate after Croke Park handed them every leg up they could ;)

Kerry have been producing great teams and great players for a century and more, a bit like the team of the decade debate in the 2000 - it seems very important at the time, but in ten years hence Kerry's legacy will be just fine.

Jaysus do some of you not get bored posting the same circular nonsense about who will feel the pressure more or less, what the match means, media campaigns and all that nonsense. There's a heap of interesting aspects to this game but with so many of you posting a load of guff it's making me not want to watch the feckin thing.

Yes we will be the greatest GAA team ever having achieved the greatest run ever. They're the best that I have seen, win or lose next week.
As regards the greatest county, we just have to haul in your total titles, already down to single figures. Another decade with one title and you're done. Living in the past does not cut it or Wexford could be claiming to be a great football county, no offence.
And of course you have your whinge and excuse built in to your post.

Team of the decade was a silly argument, won't be compared to a team winning 5 in a row. One only has to look at how famous Offaly's 1982 All Ireland became; right up to the current day to see the impact a Dublin win would have. Don't estimate the amount of attention it will get, it will go into Irish history and it'll put Dublin GAA at the centre of the new media age. It's actually why I think Kerry will find a way to win next Sunday, their tradition is being questioned and a Kerry team having that questioned is very dangerous - Kerry will be ready and put on a performance that will shock Dublin.
