It was of no more interest to anyone outside of Kerry/West Cork as your average league game.

There was nothing riding on it, no one gets knocked out of the Championship if they lose.

An entertaining game, I've no doubt, when Cork are good they often are entertaining in the same way that league games are entertaining. But no one outside of Kerry/West Cork really remembers those games anymore coz they just don't matter in the way they used to.

Hopefully they'll show the Kerry/Armagh game from 06 for you, or maybe the Kerry/Dubs game from 07, they were both, if not classics, very enjoyable encounters but a Kerry/Cork game from Munster is of little interest to anyone else."
All right so the criteria for a game worth watching is it has to be knockout, no backdoor?"
There's a difference between a game worth watching and a game worth remembering.

Any game of ball is worth watching at the time.

Kerry v Cork in the Munster Championship is worth watching at the time, but hardly unmissable, you'll get to see it again next year, and the year after, and the year after that...... often if Cork are any use you'll get to see it later that year.

It's similar to a League match in how it feels. Very different from when it was genuinely a big fixture over 20 years ago.

Lads, stop , stop will ye. One county ( Clare 1992 ) has won the Munster Championship in the last 85 years outsider of Cork and Kerry.
Now by any standards that's a pure joke like and the most one sided province in the country.
And everyone knows damn well that the years that Kerry with 81 titles, that's right 81 titles didn't win it they were blaggarded out of it. The referee was out to do them sure. That's the unwritten rule lads. Kerry don't lose games they are hoodwinked out of them and don't be thinking otherwise.

Leinster has been poor for the last 15 years. Munster has been fairly predictable for the last 100 years. Kerry win more than half and then Cork win the rest. It was the first of the provincial to be pronounced dead, Leinster has followed where Munster led.

I have to say even though Kerry we're bet in '82 while going for the five in a row it probably hurt even more when they lost last years final and couldn't stop it being done on their watch.
Two bad beatings and significant too in their overall achievements. Funny how it panned out for them really. Sport can be cruel I suppose.

The pressure and the hype seemed to get to Kerry that day. Offaly were fully deserving of their win. It was third time lucky for the Faithfull County as they lost to the Kingdom in 1980 and 1981.
