GAA Discussion / Re: Who is the most bitter after Dubs do 5 in a row

We have also seen the death of the blanket defence (unless your from Tyrone)



You can't be saying that with a straight face. Dublin and Kerry when not in possession will regularly funnel every man behind the ball, Kerry especially. Mayo Galway Fermanagh all particularly bad for it. Tyrone's version of the blanket isn't that different but they regularly rack up high scores. However they have other attributes that make them all but unwatchable. It will change in time with a change in regime.

This is the usual nonsense spouted about Dublin being a defensive team. Kerry and Dublin at times drop men behind the ball, but it's not their basic plan A,B & C like it is for Tyrone.

And they get to the halfway line, hit the blanket and start playing it across the middle. Watch the final and the replay again, it happened plenty of times.

Do you know anything about football??

Kerry and Dublin have the 2 best forward lines in the country. If you had watched the game on Saturday you would have seen amazing forward play from both sides. Five different players from the 2 sides kicked 4 points from play (dub FF line kicked 0-12 from play) but you're focusing on Dublin playing defensive football.

I am doing nothing of the sort. I am pointing out the one eyed nature of those that claim the blanket only exists with Tyrone. Other counties as described earlier do it as well. It's not difficult and is nothing much to do with quality of forward play.
As a Tyrone fan you're not used to watching top quality forwards play together so I understand allowances have to be made for your lack of knowledge.

The only thing Tyrone and Dublin have in common in terms of tactics is dublin used to need Cluxton to kick long range frees/45s and Tyrone need their keeper Morgan to do it now because its more important for Tyrone forward players to be athletes than point/free takers

Tyrone fan?  :o

Questioning someones knowledge when you know nothing about them shows arrogance and a lack of class. But carry on.
Well if you think dublin are a defensive team then I'm absolutely calling you on your nonsense. The bitterness towards dublin shows a far bigger lack of class, but hey keep on hating. Here we go 6 in a row

I think you are reading this wrong. I said other teams including Dublin can play the blanket and they did when required in both games. No bitterness here, maybe you should be enjoying it more rather than defending what isnít being said. And sure didnít you start the thread to see how much bitterness there was out there?

Must have heard about all the tight arsed Cavan men and decided to check it out for himself.

A few have used the "not around to defend himself" defence. Plenty used that line about Saville. Just saying

This morning with regard to the open border, Teresa May had to decide:

1) what is the best decision for her career?
2) what is the best decision for the Conservatives?
3) what is the best decision for her Government?
4) what is the best decision for England?
5) what is the best decision for Britain?
6) what is the best decision for the UK?
7) what is the best decision for N. Ireland?
8) what is the best decision for the DUP?

Each is probably a different answer, but would the above ordered list reflect her priorities?

7 and 8 want swapping

Odds on UK being talked back down off the cliff edge, i.e Brexit being stopped? Would have to be via 2nd referendum I would expect. Opinions if you had to put a tenner either way?

Tony Connolly is the best source of accurate analysis on Brexit- it takes a Nordie to produce clarity on this complex issue.
I suppose there is the odd Nordie who can put a pen to paper and elicit an intelligent and astute article which cuts to the core of the dilemma of the brexit in relation to the border and inform the rest of us. However, for the most part, Nordies are highly strung and best avoided as a source of rationality.

Rascist much?

Would be if Northern Irish was either a nationality or a race.
