Well done Dublin and congrats to the GAA/AIG and all the lotto funding for creating a development structure in the county which helps develop a squad of players from such a small population base of almost 1.5 million. It will be very disappointing given the professionalism and money pumped into Dublin GAA if they don't go on to win 10 or 15 of the next 20 All Ireland's.

Replying To rebeltrev:  "Dublin are a serious team. They play the game on there terms. Tyrone made some very bad decisions today which they will regret but Dublin where well in control. Other counties need to step it up and stop moaning about Dublin having money and population. They are just an once in a lifetime team."
Check how many players Dublin have had in their squad over the last 6 years! Probably close on 60+ players. That's an abundance of talent that all other counties cannot compete with. Once in a life time I don't think so. It's only going to get worse. Eventually even the dub fans won't fill Croker on All Ireland final day.

Dublin Vs Donegal - 5 Like(s)

Replying To Donegalman:  "This is the first year in a long time that we are going into a quarter final or the equivalent of with a fighting chance. It will be an entirely different Donegal side to the ones we saw coming in in 2013, 2015 or 2016 to Croke park - a team with a 6 day turnaround after playing a hatful of games. yes we have played 4 already, but our opposition this year has been much kinder to us. I feel that we are in a position of no pressure also. The team looked very laid back and relaxed last night in donegal town. We will not be going to play Dublin to keep the scoreline respectable either. The fact that our first 2 games in the super 8s are both away fixtures is unfortunate, but on the balance of our performances and where we are at, who cares. Lot of speculation about where the dubs are at this year without Connolly. I am not sure it makes much difference to be honest. Also, Cluxton's no 2 looked pretty good yesterday. They have only first world problems to contend with. The only enemy they have is their own complacency. This is an unlikely factor this time though. With Tyrone, Monaghan or mayo potentially in the group, we are looking at a very tight finish to the super 8 series. I hope we can get a win in Croke park to start off with."
Hard to watch Dublin. They are a machine. Robotic. Players super fit. Skills aren't important. McCauley has hardly put a ball to foot in 20 championship matches. He's not in the team to do that. Boring as hell to watch. I think I'll head to mass

Replying To DUBJOHN:  "Yeah that's a good idea, say a few prayers for the Louth team whilst you're there, they need all the help they can get!"
Nah. Louth are long past prayers. We've given up getting hockeyed by the dubs and any other county looking for a good day out.

Paul Mannion's Red Card Against Louth - 1 Like(s)
Mannion had no regard for the safety of the player he nailed with the frontal strike. Majority of the contact was not on the shoulder. Should not have been overturned in my view. Anyway good luck to him. Dublin are a class act
