Well done Mullinaghta, brilliant achievement.  Who needs population and resources....

You'll probably come on here in 5 years time after someone eventually beats Dublin and say the same thing. You really are some clown.

Thanks for the insult. Appreciate it.

Something called Gest.

And just for your information, there is more to the GAA than the Dublin senior footballers, its only a small part of it, so take a breath man and chill.

Jeez some shower of dry balls on here 😂. If you think this is reflective of the substance abuse problems in this country then don’t go anywhere near the outside of many bars/nitcubs any Saturday night!  Lads letting off some steam after busting their bollix for months....good on them I say and I just wish I still was where they are now as it’s gone in a blink of an eye.

100% correct, deserve to let lose for a couple of days, a once in a life time achievement for some, every team and club do it and all levels and codes, too many PC brigade in the modern era giving out, what next.

 Did you go to the Mayo gaa team dinner in the Shelbourne hotel in DUBLIN last week? It's not like you had to spend much money following the team this summer

Doubt you had to spend much either....ya know seen as ye get more home games than everyone else

It's expensive following the dubs. They always reach the finals in league All Ireland and then the added expense of celebrating All Irelands

Always? No they don't.

You have more or less admitted in writing that you've jumped on the bandwagon.

Well in the last 4 years it's been league final and All Ireland final. I didn't realise when you talk about current spending you expected Dublin fans to go back 5 years.

And being a dual fan, its quite expensive, plenty of days out and Dublin is one of the most expensive Cities in the world. I always spend a few bob on matches home or away.

This thread still going, latest gripe I( of course from a Mayo fan) only one Dublin player trials for Aussie Rules.

Couldn't make it up...

 :D

Not according to the players who actually play the game.

https://www.dublinlive.ie/sport/gpa-want-talks-gaa-over-15470754

In terms of most disruptive rule changes, the GPA recently carried out a survey from which it emerged that 96% of those polled were against the restriction on the handpass, with 54% in favour of the mark.

And it is also my belief, for all the Dublin haters out there etc, this rule will only strengthen Dublin as they are probably the best kick passing team in the country. They will figure it out.




7
Sorry it this was posted before, but GPA survey with players, 96% appose the new hand pass rule.

Its going to ruin the game.

8
Its going to be lowest scoring league of the modern era, and the dullest.

A bad bad call to proceed with this rule.

Well done  Mullinalaghta St. Columba's, great achievement.

Just shows what you can do with minimum player base and resources.

There are only 6 competitions really worth winning at the start of the year.national league,four provincials and obviously the all ireland.you are advocating getting rid of four of them.the only thing keeping county football alive in some counties is the chance of winning an Ulster or a Connaught.counties in Leinster don’t even have that small hope to cling on to.
   County football is in terminal decline not just because of the entertainment on offer,but also because many counties are playing without a full hand.some of the most talented players are opting out as there is no chance of winning anything.and for the commitment level required these days,you have to at least have a slim chance of winning.
   If Dublin were split in two,say north and south,both would automatically be in the top 3 or 4 favourites to win Sam.it would revitalise the championship I think.i can understand Dublin supporters being against it,but honestly if something isn’t done soon the all ireland won’t really be worth winning.the decline of county football isn’t something that might happen,we are already far down the road i would suggest in at least 20 if not more counties.

That is a fair point, however outside of Ulster and until recently Connaught, its a dead duck.

When did football start to decline, 2011 was it?

Or only in the last 4 years or was it in 2002 ! :)

I agree with a lot about what he says and some good points made above about large towns, I.E one team in Portlaose of 15k etc.

But this:

The very obvious thing to do is to divide Dublin up into several different teams. That suggestion causes palpitations among the Dublin hierarchy who just want to let the good times roll. That recommendation was made more than 15 years ago by a committee of top brains in Croke Park but has been ignored by all those at central level since, and of course Dublin swept it under the carpet as fast as possible. There it remains, depriving hundreds of young Dublin footballers of playing underage for some Dublin team and ensuring great adult footballers are frozen out.

Would Dublin supporters warm to these divisions and turn out in numbers in Croke Park? Would there be more at Dublin Fingal versus Dublin South than Dublin against Wicklow or Wexford? Even Jim Gavin can't make that look exciting. The present Leinster Championship is a dead duck. It is not retrievable. Hoping that something will turn up is not a policy.


1. Over my dead body and the body of all Dublin supporters.
2. If it did happen I would never support a divisional Dublin team, I know others wouldnt either.


as long as your OK. The AI, and in particular the Leinster Championship are farcical atm. What was your thoughts whilst watching the Leinster draw these last few years??

Being honest, in the noughties getting embarrassed out the door in Croke Park and some absolutely devastating defeats, since then I have preached that the only thing that matters is the AI quarter final onwards. Straight knockout. I take the league more seriously than Leinster and not really bothered by it. The league is great competition and a pity it doesn't get the respect it deserves.

I am in the 2 tier revamp boat, I go as far to get rid of provisional or play them separately early season to Champions league format 4 x 4.

Hilarious stuff on here, I am sure Cluxton is more than happy with his 6th All Ireland medal. I hope he doesn't go.

Time for the Pen Pushers to be removed from the all star picks.

I bet that inside you are fuming.

Get over it.

I know you would like to think that but not really, haven't really paid attention to them since they became the Annual All Star Mayo sympathy awards. (Not this year though). Cluxton will go down as one of the greats, everyone who is not biased knows he is one of the greats, that's that.

I rather players winning all Irelands than All Stars.

Still obsessing over Mayo I see.

Come back to me when there are dozens of threads, pages and posts on them like there is on Dublin and Dublin players on this forum, now that's an obsession.
