Over the course of the "holidays" as our American friends would say, I saw/read or heard 4 different panels on tv/radio/internet discussing the sporting highlights of the year. Many sports were mentioned, many feats were feted! From Robbie Brady to Annalise Murphy From Soldiers Field to Rio's track From Thomond Park to Carl Frampton From UFC to WWE, yes, I did indeed say WWE. (Apparently some Irish lady won some belt this year, I dunno.....scritptwriters may or may not have been in assistance!) From Tipp footballers to Westmeath Hurlers.... You know what I didnt hear tho? Not once, not even a mention of it? The first team to win back to back All Ireland football titles in more or less 20 years! Not so much as a nod in the general direction. Nothing, nada. Ye all go on about their being a PRO Dubs Bias in the media, we in Dublin scoff at ye, and this is why. The media build us up, but their sole aim, is to eventually knock us down. Always has been, always will be. If and when Mayo win and AI, the same media will wet the collective pants for 12 months and in the process find a way to award them 17 All Stars..... Until that day, can I just apologise to all on behalf of the Dublin Football fraternity for being the big bad guy that ye all love to hate. Sure look, someone has to do it. BRING ON 2017 CULCHIES! 3 in a row! COYBIB

Liam I do believe that kerry won back to back in the 00's, so g'way with your first team in 20 years nonsense And stop with your bleating of no one recognises us bull, its starting to turn people off the dubs as a whole. Everyone has rightly lauded them and recognised they are up there as one of the greatest teams ever... but this constant cry for attention is going to just generate more ABD's

20 years? I think you'll find Kerry went back to back in 2006/2007.

I would say that anyone that knows anything about sport would acknowledge that the current Dublin team are deserved all ireland double winners. It is up there with the big achievements of the last couple of seasons too in all sports. The reason that it is not such a talking point with everyone in the media is more to do with what is selling and trending rather than anything else. Conor McGregor for instance has totally taken over the imagination of the youth of the country for better or for worse. Personally, I would prefer to talk about any member of an all ireland winning team over him. But what sells sells.

Not so much as a nod in the general direction. Nothing, nada. And no better person to highlight this injustice on Hoganstand. You should probably start a few threads on it just to be sure that we don't forget about it.

Didn't Kerry win back to back titles in 2006 & 2007? You're a Gas man Liam, a bit of fishing with dynamite going on here :-) I'd be delighted for Mayo if they won the all-Ireland. If they look West, it is a long way to America, if they look East they see the Dubs with all the trappings of wealth that helps them to win All-Ireland's like berries off a tree ......... All jokes aside, the Dubs are a great team. 4 All-Ireland's in 6 years with a total final winning score surplus of 6 points. That takes a lot of steel. Given my age though, I saw the Greatest teams of all do 3 in a row and 4 in a row (Kerry 79-82, 84-86 & Kilkenny 2006-2009). If Dublin can win it in 2017 they're closing in on that type of class.

Its because Dublin have a significant advantages over all the other counties. Yes all other teams that win SAM will be rightly recognized more then the dubs.

Does 06/07 really count as a REAL back to back? They didn't win their province in 06 so it takes a lot off that achievement Everytime they went for that REAL back to back, the team of the decade beat them, beat them with ease really

Ridiculous fishing post. You can't say that 07 doesn't count because they didn't win their province and in the next breath talk up Tyrone beating them in 05 and 08. I don't know if you know this but in 2005 Armagh beat Tyrone in the Ulster final after a replay, forcing Tyrone to the back door. In 2008 Tyrone were knocked out in the first round of ulster by Down after a replay too if memory serves me correctly.

The achievements of the current Dublin crop really show up the "achievements" of Heffo's "Heros" for what they were.
