Sherlock: It seems to be Dublin versus everyone else

Blaming Dublin for any advantage they may have when it comes to funding is not “a good starting point” to developing a “sustainable model”, according to Jason Sherlock.

The money debate has been used by some to undermine the Sky Blues’ historic achievement in winning five All-Ireland SFC titles in-a-row.

The All-Ireland winning selector was asked for his opinion on the subject when a guest on RTE 2FM’s ‘Game On’ and he replied: “I’m not saying one side is right or one side is wrong.

“What I suppose is challenging for me is how entrenched it’s got. It seems to be Dublin versus everyone else, which I don’t think is a good starting point.

“Unfortunately, it’s a multi-layered challenge and kind of problem, because it involves so many different stakeholders.

“But, ultimately, I want a sustainable model and the reality is, based on GAA and populations and stuff like that, is it going to be fair for every 32 counties?

“It’s going to be a challenge.”
