Replying To TheHermit:  "I must have because all I heard was the usual giving out about a penalty bring awarded against your team. A very very soft penalty to boot, but defo did not hear any jeering when it was being taken.
On the other hand ever section of the stand was booing and whistling Kerry free takers.
Has that always been there or has it crept in over the last few years with Dublin?
Can't recall any of it in AI finals in the past."
You should have turned the volume down on your telly Hermit.

Was in the Hogan actually, I'd travel a lot supporting Kerry in person. It's a passion.

Never remember Kerry wining a tight All Ireland?
Ok so kid
What's a handy AI by the way, I'm always dying to know when that's thrown at Kerry.

Jaysus lads there's so many of ye on here with a Kerry shaped object stuck up a certain dark passage that ye must have fierce trouble getting out of bed in the morning.

But sure don't ye have a great time stalking the Kerry forum with the red thumbs ;D

Sure how can anyone now have a seriously rivalry with Dublin, the GAA have ensured that with their policies over the last decade.

We're only amateurs against semi-pros now.

C'est la vie, we'll try our best to close the gap as one of the boo brigade put it ;D

It's an interesting point and there may be a bit of truth in it, the media are desperate for a rival for Dublin and you wonder how objective that really in.

There is a fair argument there that Dublin are stronger then the very tight games Vs Mayo in 16/17, the last two All Ireland wins have been their most comfortable.

Even Kerry in 11, 13, 15, etc were always fairly competitive.

I know many will say young lads blah, blah, blah, but flogging and turning to lads like Tommy Walsh, Enright, JOD in Jan and a back six that has tried and failed at the top level consistently isn't showing headroom for opportunity to develop or improve. Who knows, maybe they were just afraid of the Dubs in Croker.

But you feel it's a big year for Keane considering the above and the Dubs being in transition, hell they don't even have a back room team in place at the moment.

Thought you'd be only too familiar with the meaning of handy ones. You know , the ones where you steamroll through Munster,a hurling province and arrive above in Croke Park ,a place ye used to be only to delighted to play until recently and not have to break a sweat in marching to another hollow title.
Take it handy now lad. ;D
Ps , you seem like a fella who has his own issues with foreign objects in dark places.

Kerry are clearly a bit off Dublin, I don't see anybody claiming otherwise here or anywhere else to be honest, not even the most blinkered Kerry fans. What hyperbole are you talking about?

Media can build it up all they like but Dublin look set up for another relatively straightforward championship win IMO, most of their key players like Fenton, Kilkenny, McCarthy, Mcaffery, Mannion, Rock, Howard and Con are In their absolute prime. Despite the 'fading force' narrative that some want to push they are arguably more talented and younger at key positions now than at any stage in the past and nobody has more big game experience. With every meaningful game at home I don't think I'll back anyone to beat them for a while yet. It's possible that things might come off the rails a bit for them if Dessie Farrell cannot get the same level of performance or 'buy in' that Gavin did over a season but I think they still hold all the aces going in to the summer.

Call that defeatist or whatever but quite honestly I don't think Kerry have the players at the back of the required caliber as a whole. The two finals last year showed that we were / are a good bit behind in terms of endurance as well, Kerry were gassed in both game with 10 minutes to go and the heavy legs were very apparent.

I am very hopeful that Kerry will win an All Ireland in the next couple of years and possibly even a couple. They have most things in place but just need those last few pieces of the jigsaw, a couple of steely backs would help considerably. Things can change over the course of the season of course, Donegal or Galway could emerge as genuine contenders or perhaps Kerry kick on, Dublin start to slip etc. That's how I see things right now though.

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "It only happens to us kerry folk Gerry as they don't want the hard questions asked.

I asked will the CCCC do anything about the strikes on kerry player by Mccarthy and scully? and John small was the 3rd man into the melee they are red cards by today's rules, there was a lot of high tackles to the heads of the kerry players as well all went unpunished."
Mickey Burns could be in a spot of bother too.
