The Dubs Propaganda Machine - 16 Like(s)
The Dubs propaganda machine has kicked into gear proper this week with diamonds from manager Jim Gavin blaming cold play for Dean Rocks black card.

Also Charlie Redmonds attack on Jim McGuinness for calling Jim Gavin out on the Diarmuid Connolly fiasco.

And then last night I read Alan Brogan going to town on Nial Morgan for goading a player when the Dubs team under Pillar took that art to new heights them selves in the naughties.

Who's next on the Dubs propaganda hit list? Let's watch this space.

Leinster Football Championship - 10 Like(s)

Replying To Royal.Legend:  "Bar mayo dublin have been miles better then everyone outside of leinster too, that dominance will come to a end sooner or later it always does to great teams, the leinster championship through the 90s to the mid naughties was a great championship and it will be again. So keep watching and we'll show ye how to beat dublin in a championship game in Croke park."
No offense but ye are miles off this Dublin team. I saw yer league final against Donegal and ye showed flashes of good football but in fairness when Donegal got tired of playing around with ye they put the boot down and blew ye away. You say Dublins dominance is coming to an end when it's a fact they're team is actually getting younger ! I can't see Dublin regressing enough where ye'l beat them tbh. Kildare have the players that could rattle them in time but not this year, and they are the closest to Dublin in Leinster. I think Dublin will be in no mood for messing around in Leinster this summer so god help ye if ye meet.

No More Cheap Shots from Dublin And Kerry - 9 Like(s)

Replying To TheHermit:  "Yes that would be good, for example I can't see how bringing up Dublin's massive financial advantages or home games etc etc in a discussion on the GAA and where it is going is "insulting" to anyone - it's a fact. Bias as I am, but for me the Dublin posters are the worst offenders in all this, constantly goading Kerry, insulting the county's past AI's as well as their players and of course posters. For example lately there is all this stuff being posted about Donaghy somehow being a professional during his playing days? I'd like to add that a very vocal Dublin poster has been on here before laughing at injuries his team inflicted on a young opponent, surely that is red card territory? As regards the above, I'd also have my suspicion that some Dublin posters are also working as moderates on here judging by what some of them are allowed post so again this needs to be called out if it is the case."
100% the hermit, also admin need to pull posters who have more than 1 account which I believe there are quite a few on here. There are a lot of dubs on hoganstand------.

GAA Funding And Fairness - 9 Like(s)

Replying To GeniusGerry:  "2018 income was only just above half of 2019, you are trying to use an exception to prove your point and well you know it. I have never once claimed Kerry are badly off, even on this thread I have said we are one of the more privileged counties. Can you post a link to the unabridged financial statements for Dublin as requested. You were posting links all over the place not long ago trying to be the hero. It is a reasonable request in the context of the debate and your continuing narrative pushing Dublin as the bastions of transparency. It will only take you a moment. As I have said above Dublins revenue is miles out of whack with their planned CapEx projects. By your own admission they have spent €25m on land acquisition before they've even broken ground. I'm genuinely intrigued to know how they are paying for it all with so little income relatively speaking. The figures just don't add up. No doubt you will try to scamper to the high moral ground now because I doubt you have a clue as to the real story beyond a basic google search, but something is seriously amiss in those figures."
Well done Gerry it looks like you've won that debate and username has conceded as he can't produce what you're looking for, I find that's funny as a few pages back he doubted that any 1 knew more than himself what was happening on the ground in dublin. He's a bluffer.

Replying To catch22:  "I'll tell you one thing Mick ,and I'm sure you don't need me to tell you this boy , you'll find that you will get a hard time of it for you're sportsmanship. You'll be told you're an imposter by those who prefer that they control the narrative and don't like it when the bully boy tactics don't put a lad off. I am sure that Kerry supporters don't like the current dominance by the Dubs but it's good to know that there's a contingent that recognise them for what they are and can perhaps begrudgingly admire the standards that they have set for all others to try and emulate. The couple of posters you refer to are accommodated more than most on here by the moderators and I think there does need to be more stringent policing of how they continue to sidetrack every thread with their bitterness and downright bad manners. I wish you the best of luck as long as you are posting here."
Stop your crawling boy :-)

Counties Missed Opportunities.... - 7 Like(s)

Replying To jacktheDub:  "Kerry 15, 16 and 19. 4 opportunities to stop the 5 in a row in its tracks and failed. Must really hurt. Honourable mention to Mayo who also had 4 opportunities but at least they pushed the Dubs all the way with the exception of 19."
This is the second dublin poster in 2 days (Breffni 39 being the other) trying to bate Kerry posters into a reaction, where is the outcry from every1 at these posters trying to ruin a thread!? Yer all very quick to jump down the throats of us kerry poster but there are obviously double standards. Personly iv no problem with this as il argue my side no problem but don't ye be coming on here then saying its us kerry posters that's turning every thread in to a kerry dublin thing.

Sean Boylan Vs Jim Gavin - Who Is The Greatest? - 7 Like(s)

Replying To TheUsername:  "Laughing here, definition of off the cuff football, 15 men behind the ball. Teams are afraid of their lives to open up against Dublin. Dublin were a level ahead of all the chasing pack, Kerry, Tyrone, Mayo, Galway, Donegal, Mongahan etc all came up to Croke Park put a defensive shield in place and Dublin asked to break them down. I think the teams that were in the pack were very evenly matched. Only Mayo got close to us really. Donegal were deserved winners in 2014 and that became the archetypal way to play Dublin that has continued to now, it only worked once. Games are a two way process really, when you play blanket stuff your proposing a style of a game. All Dublin can do is squeeze the pips. Take this years final, in the end it was easy, 6 points ahead, nonchalantly knocking the ball in front of a Kerry blanket defense. Begging them to come meet you in open play, didnt happen and so the five in a row was surrendered. Dublin had to develop and did develop a skill set around the blanket. But Dublin can and have play the game anywhere. I think their hasnt ever been a more creative and offensive team, i havnt seen a better one, that is annoying for others i suspect. Dublin are different, some counties rely in the main of a key player, Clifford, Murphy etc etc, better counties two or three. The focus of the game is all around these players and letting them the ball, Clifford and Kerry are a perfect example, which is why i dont think they will be a great thing when they eventually dsoo win the All Ireland. Dublin are different, when you look at star players over these years, Brogans, Connollys, Flynns Kilkennys, Mannions, Rocks, King Cons. Other counties are happy to play through their one or two cult players. Its not about the player its about the collective. That makes Dublin collectively different offensively to any side ever and produced a beautiful brand of football, whee space just appears. Why? because making the gap is as good a goal. Look at the scoring charts, bring your best and it doesn't compare. I was looking at the Chicago Bulls thing on Netflix the other day and when their coach came in, the empahiss became less on Jordan on the ball and more on the collective and the method achieving that as a unit, space, motion, combinations of both. That is exactly what Dublin have did. Im not sure Dessie will go down that route, but Dublin impact on the evolution of the game and attacking play has been revolutionary. Other counties couldn't keep up or had the players to. The result was essentially the mass panic, blanket defense and hope for counter. The only team ive seen who came to Dublin and opened up were Cork last year fair play to them. Ive left grounds, being dissapointed thinking counties were better then they were, but coming up and changing their way and style of playing to play Dublin and the inevitable happens. That is one of the differences that saw Dublin become the greatest Gaelic team of all time. There isnt a team in GAA i look at think the were more creative and expansive then Dublin really."
Well Dr Zhivago, il address a couple of the points you made here, Number 1 in nearly every sport in the world you will see the team that's travelling to play another team on their home patch adapt a defensive setup ( to try and quiten the home fans and get in the heads of the opposition) and then they play a counter attacking game, you would know this if ye ever had to go and play a meaningful game outside of Croker (and I don't mean a 1st round leinster or dead rubber super 8 game) how easy was it for Jim gavin knowing this and being able to plan accordingly. Number 2 you say there hasn't been a more creative or attacking team then dublin, well you've shown yourself up there with that comment typical of a fan who only started following the game in 2011, all dublins games look the very same they all melt into 1. You yourself didn't remember jonny Cooper and Kilkenny being on the dublin team in in 2012 you said that yourself only a page back and you had to be correct by a couple of your own posters I was scarlett for you.

Posters Crossing The Line - 7 Like(s)

Replying To greysoil:  "Have noticed an emerging unsavoury tone by some posters of late. Indeed, what is surprising is the posts that are being generated by users that would have appeared level headed before. There is no place for personal slights on players or indirectly on their families. Important to remember that these are amateurs giving a big chunk of their time to their counties & for our entertainment. Keep the slagging general. We never know the impact of flippant commentary. #Give respect. Get respect."
Certain people on here can't hold their temper greysoil and can't handle people having different opinions to their own. I respect everyone's opinion, I don't always agree with them and il always come up with arguments to back up my own opinion . Live and let live I always say, but it was very wrong of that poster in question to go after a 19 year old amateur footballer.

Is It Time To Be More Careful Of The Language We Use? - 7 Like(s)

Replying To avonali:  "I've noticed terms freely used in the forums that are highly questionable. In one county forum -not difficult to guess which one- Dublin fans are players are referred to as 'The Huns.' I would have thought that such a term, with all its sectarian and historical associations, has no place in a forum like. this. In Scotland usage of this term can get you into serious is deemed sectarian and divisive. I am mystified as to why a county supporter would resort to borrowing a word from used by one Glasgow soccer club to describe their rivals. I've also noticed usages like "True Gaels"??? How does that speak to the many sons and daughters of immigrants who now play GAA? The old cliche that Dublin people reside in "The Pale" and are somehow less Irish that those outside, -despite many having parents from outside Dublin-is still wheeled out. The point is that a barely concealed hostility for anything having a remote association with Britain -whether that association with Britain be real or imagined- lurks just beneath the surface, ready to be deployed when somebody wants to lob a mindless insult. I thought we had settled our differences with Britain when we welcomed members of the Royal family into Croke Park? Then we have usages like "feral" "flat dwellers" etc etc. to refer to Dubliners.Again the lazy association . Dublin has social problems like any major city but what does it say about the values of the person who uses these terms to insult others. Since when was it wrong to be poor, or wrong to live in a flat complex."
Was it you or another dublin poster that said offence isnt given its taken?

Pat Spillane - "Dubs Can Be Rattled" - 7 Like(s)

Replying To jimbodub:  "Fair play to you Pat there's a few that could do well to listen to you! Any top team with their crap together can and have rattled this Dublin team across this decade. They've also done more than rattle Dublin.. but they've convincingly beaten them! It's been hugely competitive stuff. Some of the most incredible games you're ever likely to witness. Just think back.. think of the classic games witnessed across this decade. No cake walk All Ireland's this decade! It's a pity that hasn't been adequately recognised by a sort of oddly self serving revisionism which doesn't tally up with the games themselves.. but there's an agenda there and there's a lot being conveniently forgotten about to serve it. Which again is a pity. It should be about more than that. The doom and gloomers will have you believe Dublin are almost invisible! Utter rubbish. Daft. The stats are there in black and white and Mr Spillane is spot on in this regard and this decade will continue to be hugely competitive across 2018. Just like every other Football championship across this decade. It's already been proven across NFL Div 1 2018 and Pat.. you'll be proven right across the Championship 2018."
Ye have the refs and home advantage and all the money , that's hard to beat jim.
