Regarding the last 10 minutes of the Dublin v Donegal match, Dublin are not there to entertain, they are there to win.

Some matches are very defensive, stale and tight, others are free flowing attacking football. Like in every sport there are good games and bad games, I believe this year is heading for the highest scoring championship to date. A lot good games this year.

Sorry lads but this thread is about Mayo. Deflections to other teams is a poor contribution to the thread.

But he did that and they did this.

See Galway Mayo game this year as example.

Stats are there, look at last 3 years in league and championship,  look at blacks, yellows and reds, free counts.

Seems particular more so in the last couple of years, possible frustration of not winning.

What, the Media darlings Mayo, come off it man.

So every loss Mayo suffered to Dublin was down to poor refereeing.  Heard it all now.

I remember replay 2015 Mayo were 4 points up at 55 minutes and lost by 7 points, I suppose that was down to the referee.

Mayo have got an easy ride of the media and referees all through out this decade, got away with some serious on field violence and still couldn't get over the line.

Iím just glad our game against Dublin will count as our away one. (Sorry to the one Armagh lad with a flag up in Castlerea).

Donegal are getting screwed the most of any team in the Super 8 with this game and having to trek to Dublin for a 7pm game because HQ doesnít want the soccer jackeens staying in the boozer for the WC final.

Your are correct,  its only Dublin Jackeens that want to watch the World cup final.

In fairness it should be a triple header on the Saturday and the 4th game at either 1, 1:30 or 2 on the Sunday to give people a chance to see it.

Sure didn't they move games for the champions league final? Don't think it was a Dublin game.

Thatís all fine lads, but the Dubs are getting two home games while no one else enjoys the same advantage. Itís about time there was a stop put to this, whether or not itís too late for this season. At the very least, the venue benefits should not favour one particular team. Kildare have started something.

Kildare exploited a loophole. As for the round robin for the last eight, the motion that was voted in at congress was every team in the last 8 would have one home game one away and one game played in Croke park. Croke park is not Dublins official home ground so Armagh or Roscommon have a strong case to get their round 3 game played in Parnell park and if the CCCC deem that venue unsuitable then they have to select a neutral venue and some where other than Croke park.

Loophole or not, Kildare appear to have lit a fire under at least parts of the GAA community. We'll see in the long run whether it will peter out or whether Dublin get to keep all of the advantages they enjoy going forward.

And seriously, spare us the "official home ground" nonsense. It is an absolute fact that Donegal will be playing two away games in the Super 8s and Dublin will be playing two home games. The Donegal County Board are absolutely right that this is not a level playing field. And while it is likely too late for this year, there's no harm in trying to see that it gets addressed for the future.

Spot on J70

Funny how Croker isn't an advantage to Dublin yet they don't want to give it up 🤔

More than happy to. Its HQ CCCC that make the calls on this, Dublin will play anywhere they are told.

He's right though, Dublin rent it for the their home league games, which is 3 or 4 games per year it is officially Dublin's home ground.

Leinster council rule it for championship and call the shots and where teams play.

Then HQ from 1/4s (super 8s) on wards call the shots.

Would love to see Dublin play the last match in Parnell Park. Could be dead rubber also.

Play the 3rd match in Parnell park. All Dublin season tickets get tickets first.

As a fan, more than happy to travel anywhere and give Croke Park game.

The heat wave is making people delirious.

" they're the best team to never win an All-Ireland but contrary to the history books, this is a team full of winners."

https://www.sportsjoe.ie/gaa/american-club-confirm-deadline-day-signing-of-mayo-duo-166706 

Its getting to embarrassing levels now on Social media and indo media fawning over the peoples champs.

The only sure thing on annual basis in the GAA that Mayo would not win the all Ireland.

Yeah, the best team not to win the All-Ireland is the 1982 Kerry team

Possibly, however the part I tried to highlight is the "this is a team full of winners." part of that sentence. Oh we laughed.

Mayo possibly the best team never to win an alright, sure didn't they run the greatest team of all time very close.

The dirtiest and most cynical team this decade and still couldn't win the big one, even being so far ahead in certain games.

I know a guy from Mayo, big into GAA and all sports, but supports the Galway Hurlers and Sligo Rovers,  wont support the Mayo footballers, says overhyped and the fans are akin to the Leinster rugby fans, he says he's know time for them.

I know a guy from Dublin a big Dubs fan & Hill 16 man, big into soccer and he was telling me that Ireland should vote to leave the EU and rejoin the commonwealth cause Dubs are British anyway and Liverpool would be his soccer team more than any Irish team but sure we know Dublin fans are all Brit loving soccer people anyway akin to Brexit national front supporters so I don't why we even let them play football or hurling? ;)

Cant argue with you there, loads of west brits in Dublin, and Ireland, nearly getting out of control now.

Just surprised to hear that from a Mayo man,  that is all I pointed it out.

I am Unfamiliar with Trolling, I am just stating fact.  A lot of talk on these boards on Dublin, Kerry and Tyrone (especially all things Tyrone) can the peoples champions not be discussed also, its a relevant topic in my opinion, there is an awe about Mayo, but it is confused with Entertainment. Not because they are a good team (in my opinion very lucky in a lot of games).

I wonder if Mayo had won 3 or 4 all Irelands this decade would things be different, Kerry, Tyrone got it, Dublin getting it now.

You won't get a quick answer to that. In fact you won't get an answer!

This team is a one off! Out of the blue (to use the pun) has sprung up a talented 25 players - all at the same time. All full time employed lads. A miracle of our time. Playing all their games in a Neutral venue.

Thank you for your honest correct factual statement.

Unfortunately Dublin have been forced to give up home advantage since 2010 and play on a neutral venue they cannot even train on. The Dublin team have been force to train out in Innis Fails and category E training facility.

Dublin should be allowed to train in Croke Park. Petition anyone?
