Replying To Breezy:  "Just saying KK and Tipp contested this years final isnt giving enough credit to the state of hurling at the moment. Neither won their provence and both were taken to the line in the semis. Last year Cork and Clare took Limk and Galway to extratime and a replay and Waterford were in the 17 final. Also tring to pick a clear favorite for next years provences or AI is as tough as any competition I know of."
Absolutely. Any one of 6 or 7 teams are genuine contender's in hurling.
Lmk, Galway, Tipp, Kilkenny,Wex, Cork could all make a reasonable claim.
don't think Waterford or Dublin are at that level yet, but not far off.
Bit disingenuous to point to last year's AI Final as a return to the status quo..

Fortunate to see what exactly? Never before seen dominance by a county, engineered by the powers that be, to become a semi professional outfit in a still amateur sport? And how many potential rivals are going to the wall financially in a vain attempt to keep up with the riches bestowed on one before all others.
Sorry but all this decade has shown is that inter county football as we know it is on deaths door and the GAA's response?
Never mind the blue elephant in the room, look here's a tier 2 competition for the also rans....

Replying To Johnnyprophet:  "It has been a poor decade just gone , well for football anyway and this decade will probably be more of the same when you have one team being given a money advantage and everyone else trying to catch up and I know il get our money troubles fired at me now and we've got problems no doubt but that doesn't detract from what's going on in Dublin.
Hurling has been good in my honest opinion and that's not just because we won an all Ireland."
You're not wrong jonny, I don't see any changes in football in the 20s either.

Plenty of hurling in North Kerry doesn't change the Dublin issue though....

How about you explain to us why you've an issue with people who have a low post counts when they say something you disagree with but have no problem with it when it's the other way around?

Replying To catch22:  "How fortunate we are to be witnessing events that have never been seen before in the GAA.
The great Kilkenny team of the previous decade and now Ballyhale putting themselves on top of the club All Ireland titles table.
Corofin achieving 3 in a row, something not done previously and Dublin completing the 5 in a row, a new standard at county level.
Kerry's underage teams also have made their mark.

For all the complaining and reasons for it, it's still a golden age with teams that will be remembered long for what they have done and the commitment required to reach these heights."
"The great Kilkenny team of the previous decade".

Let me rephrase that for you "The great Kilkenny teams of the two previous decades".
