Replying To Mailman98:  "Nonsense. Joe Canning was judged a failure until 2017. He needed to win an all-ireland to be considered a great and he did it."
You're the only one suggesting a player needs an AI medal to be considered a great player lad. Come out of the clouds will ya bucko. You're living in cloud cuckoo land.

No; you can be a great player without winning an All-Ireland but you can't be one of the 15 best of the decade. Have you got my point now or do I need to explain it again for you?

So you'd say that Graham Canty was better this decade than Lee Keegan, given that he won an all ireland?

Graham Canty 2001-2010 was as good as, if not better than Keegan 2011-2019.

So you cannot be considered for the team of the decade unless you've an AI. Although you can be a great player.
You're even worse than I first thought so.
The lads in white coats will be around for you shortly.

Your point is rubbish and simply doesn't hold up, so really there is no point

I thought this thread was set up by Dubh_linn and he clearly included non-AI winning players in his own chosen 15. Are you saying he was wrong and should have qualified his title?

I agree canty was a class player.

Because if I said 2000-2009 personally I wouldn't say that he was better than Keegan. The 2010 All-Ireland winning year in 2010 is particularly important in my head in deciding that Canty is superior from 2001-2010.

Same argument as above, Frank McGlynn's performances when winning the All-Ireland in 2012 makes it difficult for me to choose Keegan over him in this decade.

In saying that, I have no hesitation of putting Ciaran MacDonald in my own team of the 2000s, so each to their own.

Sure some of them boys should be locked up as well.
Hear no evil, see no evil , speak no evil. Great bunch of lads.

This was part of my point as well. Canty played only a couple of years of the 2010s but he was brilliant in one of those years and won the All-Ireland. Thanks SurelyToGod. I almost forgot Canty as another one more deserving than Keegan.

Are you saying we can't disagree with the first post in a thread? Well that will make for interesting reading now won't it!

There's levels of greatness. How hard can that be to understand?

No Brian Howard at Centre Back makes this team invalid in my eyes, they could've done a lot better.
