Kerry have the population of blanchardstown,what is your point,the delusion of some dubs to whats happening is off the scale,oh the money doesn't kick the ball over the bar,we don't dominate hurling,our population wasn't a problem before the money was pumped in,other counties need to get the act together,parnell park is our home ground, moronic stuff,as a county football team dublin will be broke up 10 years maybe 5 at this rate down the line,with the structures now in place after all this investment its irreversible,there clearly is no way other counties could catch them, its impossible, how the gaa thought this was a good idea I'll never know,the whole integrity of competition is a farce,fans and players are walking away,the gaa have ony themselves to blame

Between you, whining cringing and your friend the Royal correspondent on about "your lot" when he's talking about Tyrone people, any wonder people like to get digs at you. I don't think yous like anybody, even your own if they talk the truth.

Meath V Dublin Leinster Final. - 5 Like(s)

Replying To CiarraiMick:  "Realdub I have no problem with you having a problem with some Kerry posters or people for that matter but you ré trying to rand all Kerry the same. I don't like some dub comments here but I don't throw it back at Dublin. A neighbour of mine had his face slashed with a bottle after 85 all ireland by a Dub. While he and his family today have an awful hatred of Dublin most of us realise it was a person that just happened to be from Dublin. It was an individual thing. When players are taking fees into hill 16 or goalies taking lockout a section of the Hill are always jeering and whistling the opposition. Free takers have said its the most intimidating place to take frees. I think its horrible and very unsporting but when asked about dub fans as a rule I say they are good gaa people good craic and fair minded supporters. My point being its very easy to blame everyone. We all have diff opinions and that's a good thing. The world would be boring if not. However there is no need to get personal. As I've said bef ore many Kerry men won all Irelands with Dublin and even captained them and the likes of Brian Fenton Cian Ó Sullivan Brian Mullins all have Kerry blood. In my life time watching dubs win from 74 to 2019 every single Dublin team had at least one player who had a Kerry parent and there will be many more. Food for thought."
Ok Mick, not all Kerry posters, but everyone knows who I'm referring to, and its not you. I'm well aware that Dublin GAA was started by country people, I've always said it, and we're proud of our roots, but we are still Dublin. Brian Mullins hated Kerry with a passion (during his playing days) despite his connections most of us have some country connection, we have to come from somewhere. I stand by my post.

This news will disappoint a lot of Kerry, Meath and Kildare people I would say. Another decision not made by Dublin that sees them playing in Croke Park.

Replying To TheUsername:  "You'd be surprised at the amount of players from other counties who live in walking distance of Drumcondra, I was at a BBQ precovid of a prominent county footballer (non Dub) who played in many All Ireland finals who had just moved in in Drumcondra. Mad thing is they often aren't allowed to stay at home before a game, often stay the night in the hotel to be with the team. Yet same player isn't playing at home. I'm also thinking of a few teams, who go on the raz once knocked out in Dublin because the majority of the players are living up here. If Dublin are at home in Croker, many are very familiar with it and have set up camp in Dublin, it's like if I was living in Castlebar, would I feel unfamiliar with McHale probably not. When you look at Leinster teams in particular a huge deal is made about playing away, the Newbridge or No where stuff. Personally I find it very hypocritical, Kildare were content to play all their games under Micko in Croker as were Meath during their successful years, the last time they got to a final All their games were played in Croker. I think that was unfair in the same vein that Dublin should play more games outside Croker, that's why I can't take the Leinster stuff seriously, Kildare and Meath did the same thing and have short memories. The other piece that relates to Leinster, is for Kildare and Meath in particular, their are parts of Kildare and Meath that you would be Croker quicker then parts of Dublin, playing away - I don't really think so, both counties empty 9-5 Mon - Fri and fill Dublin. But I agree with your point of view in general, the GAA want Dublin in Croke Park, it's a massive money spinner. I'd personally prefer more away games, I think the players would to. But premium seats, corporate boxes, hospitality, gate receipts are all sold with the Dublin market and this Dublin team on the ticket. If our country cousins in Leinster are going to boycott, I'd encourage them to do it so we can have more away games, their funds might be cut annually, but I think everyone would like more Dublin games outside of Croker. Not sure the Leinster counties & council or GAA for that mater have the bottle though."
We can argue the merits of many things but your point on non Dublin players living in Dublin meaning something significant in football terms is one of the daftest things I have ever read on here and that is saying something. 10-15 of the Mayo panel most years are usually based in Dublin year on year but what has that got to do with anything? The provincial championships are not fit for purpose. I have long been in favour of a Champions League style format with teams travelling all over. Bring the leagues into play to ensure some.sort of seeding system year on year and then it will be a great spectacle. Dublin will not be beaten in Leinster for a long time yet. And while Tipp have had a great win I would put money on the Kerry winning 7 or 8 of the next 10 with Cork catching them once or twice. 2 out of 4 provinces are pretty much dead in my eyes. Connacht has 3 teams maybe at the minute. There are far too many teams who are not fit for purpose in the current system.

Replying To daytona11:  "S Cluxton Dublin Mullen Mayo Fitzsimons Dublin Maher Tipp Durcan Mayo Small Dublin Murchan Dublin Fenton Dublin Mc Kiernan Cavan Galligan Cavan Scully Dublin Kilkenny Dublin C. O'Connor Mayo O'Callaghan Dublin Sweeney Tipp See above. Dubs 10 in a row deserves to be honoured. They net a decent Laois and Meath team on there way. A division 1 team at that in Meath. Laois and Meath would cause any Division 1 teams apart from the dubs serious problems on their day. Tipp, taking away the romance haven't really bet a team at a significant level at the moment. The Cork result was no shock being honest. That's the reason why I have given them 2. Cluxton made a tremendous save versus Meath and kick-outs were excellent again. Cavan deserve their two and possibly unlucky not to have 1 more in the keeper."
In fairness Cluxton's save was arguably the turning point v Meath....

I brought it up to highlight what you often hear on here about the advantage of Dublin players sleeping in their own bed and dont need to travel Lets be honest the vast bulk of a lot of inter county squads require none of those things, in fact be interesting to know what percentage of intercounty squads are living in the home of the five in a row."
Mayo players train in Mayo for Championship months . 6 hour round trip twice a week for the Dublin lads. Please if you want to debate the advantages or not that Dublin have please try and keep it sensible.

I'm delighted with the decision. I just wish 82000 people could be in attendance to see Cavan beat Dublin. But it'll be sweet regardless.

Well even you lads have to hope the championship remains relevant to some degree. Wouldn't surprise me if Dublin let Mayo lose by about 5 and then people can say it's still competitive.

I think Mayo, Tipperary and Cavan would all have a similar chance against each other, with Mayo being slight favourites of course. But the Dubs are on a totally different level and it's hard to see anything other than a Dublin 6 in a row. Whether they do it easily or with difficulty only time will tell, but the result will be the same. Big thing for me though is, those teams have to try and beat the Dubs, 1-9pt defeats do not equate to a win and are nothing to celebrate!!

Good post Username; whilst I wouldn't agree the non Dublin county players living in Drumcombra gives them an advantage in regards to Croke Park or playing at "home" your 100% correct about Kildare and Meath. I recall the sea of white or green jerseys/flags etc on Hill 16 and right around Croke Park during Meath and Kildare's glory days - it was a great sight. To be fair there was nowhere else to cater for the tens of thousands of fanatical supporters that followed them. Champions from the other three provinces often said how difficult the Leinster champions were to beat in Croke Park - especially if one of those teams bridged a big gap and had very little experience of Croke Park; especially a Croke Park with 80K - the Leinster teams were used to it; usually playing all their championship games in it. Croke Park due to it's geography has always benefited the Leinster teams; the Leinster council aren't going to say no to revenue, be that Meath, Kildare or Dublin almost filling Croker themselves if they're being successful. In saying all of this Dublin and Croke Park has become a problem; back in those days national league games, training sessions after games, extensive warm downs on the pitch, the use of the same changing room game after game weren't allowed. There is no doubt Leinster benefit more than most in regards Croke Park but there is also very little doubt Dublin's county team have abandoned Parnell Park and have very much made Croke Park their home - in all the wise decisions made by Dublin GAA over the last 20 years the "spring series" whilst about revenue would have also been about football in so much as making Croke Park familar to new players early. I think the GAA need to look at the issue because the fact other counties don't want to play in Croke Park is a problem. Croke Park is owned by every GAA club,member, county, province, body throughout Ireland and beyond, nobody should have the impression they're visiting Dublin's home ground - it's the GAA's home.
