Take that back. Baldoyle's finest, Becky Lynch, was a worthy inaugural WWE champion and is doing herself and her country proud, vanquishing a multitude of opponents in the squared circle!

Replying To Reformation:  "I actually think it is a fair point he made. But this is how it is in sport - the dominant teams are almost expected to win and if they don't then people destroy them. I think Dublin fans need to realise that. I wouldn't be taking it to heart - its banter and if its too hot in the kitchen...

When we talk about coverage of GAA in general, i think it is poor. I don't read many articles in national or local papers that give insight into systems and tactics etc. The game has evolved but the reporting has not. I'm drifting off the point here so ill leave it there."
I agree with you here in that the quality of reporting on the GAA leaves a lot to be desired in an awful lot of the media, and unfortunately there is no sign of any great improvement on the horizon. Too many of the so called top GAA reporters seem to be just drifting along happy with their reputation of being one of the 'big' voices on the GAA scene, and just churning out the same old clichés every year. Dublin's full back line can be got at, Kerry are an ageing team, Mayo don't have marquee forwards, and while some or all of these statements may have a bit of truth to them, the game and it's top teams are much more complex than that and deserve a much deeper level of analysis with regard to tactics/players and performances, similar to other sports.
As for Dublin, or any other county getting too much/too little coverage, (delete to suit your own point of view), I just think there are an awful lot of people out there that are a bit too precious, and as you say shouldn't be taking to heart the online ramblings of anyone on here or any other branch of social media.

Media and GAA people are fatigued of Dublin and their dominance, it was evident with Lee Keegan winning player of they year. Dublin have created a perch and the next narrative and story is for them to be knocked of it, it's human nature and interest. With dominance comes fatiuqe nd celebration when that dominance is broken, it will happen, but the challenge for the Dubs is to keep the show on the road for a while longer.

I don't really pay it much head mind, it's nothing in comparrison to sunny days in Croke Park, with that winning feeling and watching win I g all Ireland finals again over winter by a cosy fire. We go again and stick to the process.

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.

No harm RTE and TV 3 are long enough telling us the Dublin regional news every day, 'on todays main evening news 2 dogs barked for a few hours in Tallaght, The Government gives more money to some company in Dublin, a woman forgets her shopping bag in Clondalkin, In rugby Leinster rob more Connacht players for their team etc' it's about time some media gave us news other then boasting about the dubs

Replying To realdub:  "No Ghost, it's for an entirely different reason, and it's realdub :D I've no problem losing, especially now that we've had a few, and I know now we'll come again. Some lads will know what I mean when I say there's almost something nice about being 2nd best, it's reflective and you tend to start putting things in perspective. And then you rise up and the feeling then is as exciting as it ever was."
Sorry realdub I didn't mean any disrespect it was the predictive text on my fone.
And that's a fair assessment by you there. 2 years without Sam in the kingdom is too long for us down here.

Ah Liam sure if Mayo win an all Ireland the national media are screwed who are they going to write hard luck stories about then? It will take a few years to ramp it up to the level of Mayo! As for being the bad guys sure somebody jas to do it I still find it hard to back kerry no matter who they play against even Dublin.
