Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Ya Barney the Kerry team from 2010 on was in serious decline.

From 2009 after losing our goalie Diarmuid Murphy our full back Tommy Griffin our centreback Mike Mccarthy our midfielders Darragh O'sé and Séamus Scanlon Also Kennelly and Tommy Walsh had gone to Oz, David Moran who was breaking into the team was recovering from a cruciate.

A country team can't lose those kinda players and stay on top."
Still at the whinging -:)

I was trying to be nice coming up to Christmas.

You have a great boost down there now with that full time professional centre of excellence, so it won't be too many years before you are back being competitive at the top level.

Football needs Kerry. I'd be the first one to stand over that.

Gaels in Tyrone and Mayo would all agree with that I am certain.

Ya the centre of excellence is great Barney and the county board worked hard for it.

It's hard to believe now but its only 3-4 years ago we were renting pitches from UL in limerick an the Mallow gaa complex in Cork, but now we have the facility in Currans but that doesn't gaurentee success but it won't hurt.

You call it whinging and I call it honesty, you don't like people shining a light on yer advantages and the favouritism the gaa show ye, but home advantage Money and population has to be factored in when speaking about yer players of the last 10/12 years.

Sure you'd prefer Innisfail, keep us honest and leave the Hair Gel, swanky haircuts, Lynx Africa, Inflatable Domes, COE's & Sports Campus's to others, its their way.

Its a simple game, complicated only by those who complicate it.

How can a fair chunk of your team of young fellas go down with cramp in your biggest game of the year, with a brand new center of excellence & sports campus, you can keep it. ;)

Hi remember when ye thought ye were getting the €12 million CÓÉ at abbots town and ye moved yer weights and gear into findye has to share it with other counties and ye took yer gear and moved out?

That was funny.

I was reading not so long ago that dublin are planning on building 2 COEs so maybe ye be getting twice as much cramp as the Kerry lads :-)

His retirement passed me by but what a player. Superb defender whose ability to nail a point, outside of the boot, from the 45 was uncanny. It nearly became his signature move.

The fact that he didn't complete the full game in 2017, for whatever reason, is as big a reason why Dublin won as anything else imo.

Since this is a farewell/retirement thread, can we way farewell to the tit-for-tat Dublin/Kerry stuff for a while (funding, weak hurling provinces etc.), at least until they're due to play each other again?
Boyle was a serious player. He was as tough as nails. Himself and Higgins especially are 2 players I'd love to have seen win an All-Ireland.

You're correct wanpointwin but if you look back a page or 2 you'll see that I didn't start the tit for tat, but I did finish it, I probably shouldn't have reacted to them in fairness though .

Anyway back to the thread, and Colm Boyle was a fantastic warrior and a great footballer and he was a joy to watch, all the best to Colm in his retirement .
