National - Pat Spillane's team of the Century

Mes/Greenandred,

Hermit is at this craic for years now. No body ever beat Kerry on merit, ever!! Especially not the Dubs! Every game Dublin have beaten Kerry in for 5 years now, has been down to either good luck, a bad ref, or Kerry not bringing their A game as such

I like Hermit, we bounce off each other in the summer and its good craic, but he is woe to EVER admit that Dublin are better than Kerry and cant accept that we have been better than them for 5 years now.

Bless him. He must be walking around the KIngdom in the off season muttering to himself in a constant state of denial and flux like a fella that has just been Tangoed........

Never maintained I wasn't biased when the conversation comes to Kerry Liam (happy New Year by the way).

But I'd like to think I raise things which are worth considering from time to time (the old even a busted clock is right twice a day sort of thing).

Anyway there's so many of the Hill 16 mafia on here someone needs to put it up to us.

Referees being chosen for big matches involving the same counties when they have close associations with one or have made bad errors before should not be acceptable IMO.

I wouldn't pay too much heed with a lot that McStay has to say. Some Mayo supporters still blame the ref for losing the '96 All Ireland and also still resent Meath, all of it! But I heard this summer that Liam McHale is not liked in Meath, not sure if there's any truth in that?

We should have beaten Kerry the first day in 2014. I thought they were the hungrier team in the replay. The atmosphere was class. I hadn't seen Kerry supporters as fired up before. We got some calls in the first half. They got some calls. Cream rises to the top. When they got chances they took they took them. Had some quality subs to bring on. Better team on the night I thought. Another replay lost this year. Again chances missed or just not taken. Regardless of quality of our forwards we could have moved ball quicker, taken better options. Dubs used their bench, quick ball, decisive shooting. Better team won, again. Rochford and McEntee won't blame referees. I'm sure Gavin and Fitzmaurice don't either. They'll look at weaknesses even in victory and try to improve.

I suppose you had that on loop for the six months after August 2014 when you were on here every minute moaning about Donegal beating ye and Kerry picking up yet another 'handy' All-Ireland etc etc. I've never seen any lad do as much complaining on here as you did that winter.

Could you imagine if it was Dublin we had beat in 2014 the hermit , clon would never have recovered.

I said you's got very lucky in '14 and we're For a Kerry team very average I stand over that til the day I die. And in hindsight I've been proved right cause with a better Kerry team (more experienced and Gooch back) you can't win Sam since. Im just talking about the '14 Kerry team the Kerry team that won 4 all Ireland's in the 00's was a great side and I would never say the ref won them 4 all Ireland's and whatever cause that would be complete bs.

2 or 3!!! There was about 10 on here at one point in the winter of 2014 all b*tching about how unfair it was that Kerry had swopped in and stolen an All-Ireland from the 'rightful' champions in waiting!

And you can be sure the next time Sam is in the Kingdom this place will be in meltdown too, here's hoping its next September!

Don't worry lads, I reckon we're gonna start losing in the near future, you will win some more, and so will we, I see an even better rivalry developing, and if Mayo keep going and a couple from the north the championship will be rocking. And all talk of refs will be quelled.
