Tyrone, welcome to the world of Dublin, although no where near as bad as the noughties.

Its a long way from the sweetheart writings of Mayo.

Smart words from a dumb man/woman!!
You sir/madam are perhaps the most consistent gobshite I have ever had the pleasure to encounter!

The pleasure Is all yours my friend.

Alternative views and opinions must not be welcome on this, views that goes against some main posters it seems, with agenda's.

Its a fair comment, some counties get an easier ride than others in the press. Mayo is being one of them, Tyrone on the other side of it.

€ for € I can guarantee Dublin spend more on their backroom team than every other county in Ireland. It's where money actually has an affect, so to equate " I can guarantee you if you went into any county set-up the resources are probably very similar. You'll have a strength and conditioning coach, a nutritionist, a psychologist, a medical team, a tactical team" is just disingenuous bollix.

In Your opinion.

Thee top teams have them, if it costs Dublin more to get them which is probably does then that's a Dublin issue.

Dublin set-up is the exact same as every other county' - Philly McMahon

Trump would be proud of Dublin GAA!

Headline hunting now Dinny (Ewan)

I actually don't know where… If you talk about expenses we get the same as everyone else, and probably less because we don't have to travel that far. I don't see where the money is going, for me. And I guarantee you if you went into any county set-up the resources are probably very similar. You'll have a strength and conditioning coach, a nutritionist, a psychologist, a medical team, a tactical team.

"Just go through Stephen Cluxton's speech and ask other county teams have they got that? Because they have. There is very little difference.
 


He's right, of the top teams anyway.

No once you exclude travel expenses are Dublin spending more than every other county, so he's not right of the top teams!

Sorry I don't know what you mean. He says his personal expenses are less due to non travel is what I think I am reading.

Or even worse Dublin 7 , ban all culchies all together from being members of Dublin clubs. People from the country that move to Dublin are part of the life blood of Dublin clubs. A lot of the GDO's are from the country. The last manager I played under was a club man from Tipp that has volunteered in the club for the last 50 years.

Anyway I enjoy reading the negative posts, it gives me pleasure winning makes you all so miserable and jealous. Long may it continue.

@Priceyreilly

In answer to your question,

Hard work by thousands of volunteers, good coaching structures put in place, a long term plan by visionaries, more of the population playing GAA , at underage anyway, a good recruitment drive from clubs, clubs bettering themselves with structures and facilities,  Good corporate governance, good club Community spirit, historical competing and in regards specifically to the senior footballers, Jim Gavin and the structures and mindset he put in place along with some of the naturally gifted footballers the country has produced and some of the hardworking group of footballers every produced in the country.

There you go, have a great day.

 ;D We have an answer!!! One that can be ripped apart but an answer at least. Here we go:

Hard work by thousands of volunteers - Every county has hard working volunteers
good coaching structures put in place - Highly financed coaching structures. Paid regional development officers overseeing the work by paid coaches under elite pathway programs
a long term plan by visionaries - A plan devised by the GAA Review Committee and impossible without Bertie support
more of the population playing GAA - Dublin have always had more population playing GAA
at underage anyway - Underage and senior
a good recruitment drive from clubs - This was apart of the plan overseen by the highly paid officers
clubs bettering themselves with structures and facilities - Again, the money provided paid coaches which pushed this
Good corporate governance - The increased success off the back of the financial doping attracted numerous new sponsors worth millions more
good club Community spirit - Same in every county
historical competing and in regards specifically to the senior footballers - Senior footballers moved from a top 8 team to unbeatable, hurlers went from minnows to provincial champions and All Ireland contenders, underage results went from hopeless to dominant, again all bought
Jim Gavin and the structures and mindset he put in place along with some of the naturally gifted footballers the country has produced and some of the hardworking group of footballers every produced in the country - Gaelic Games first professional team! Players created through the multi million euro development system and then coached and prepared by an extensive backroom team consisting of some highly paid coaches. 

So fair play for actually attempting an answer but unfortunately for you, I just batted it out of the park.  :)

Alternative Universe response and not worth a reply. Enjoy your ignorance.

The usual troll accounts out in full force I see. Then sad part is seperating the shallow, one note WUM accounts from the actual opinion of the average Dublin supporter has become less and less obvious as the years have went by.

I agree, I think GAA-Board should start banning some of the anti Dub brigade WUM's.

Would only question one phrase there TheGreatest , " some of the naturally gifted footballers the country"  They are highly trained in Gavins system, but I really think if most counties had the same "opportunities", time ,etc, they may do the same.  There may be more " naturally gifted footballers" in other counties --and no I'm not anti-Dub ......( runs for cover )

Maybe.

Connolly and Fenton would be natural.

Cluxton had to work hard and mastered it over a very long playing career.

I don't think Jack Mc Pace can be coached?

Etc.

Because hard work and talent has nothing to do with it

54 titles since 2005 in all grades and levels. 14 in the previous 13 years. And it just so happened that the enormous funding disparity begun 13 years ago. Some sort of freak coincidence or instringently linked? Let's get real here. It's all bought. I haven't even added in the club titles for clubs in Dublin, it's gone up from 4 to 17 in the past 13 years compared to the 13 before.
I'd like a good laugh so can anyone come up with a reasonable explanation for the huge increase in titles since 2005 which coincided with the huge increase in funding for Dublin GAA?

So you think hard work and talent have no bearing on this at all? And cut the bought titles shite will ye

Wasting your breath on these guys Tonto, multiple threads on the Dubs, they are more obsessed with Dublin than their own team or clubs.

I stated before, people always hated the Dubs, now its gone up 10 fold since the senior footballers have  a good team, which is only a small part of Dublin GAA.

Could you imagine if or when the  Hurlers win an All Ireland, there will be marches through the streets, or fields in some cases.

Long may it continue.

It's the recent All Ireland final losses by a point each time that is annoying me. And the 'let's-all-belittle-Mayo' element of their support base which annoys me so much, and there's a good lot out there.
As without doubt the biggest rivals of the Dublin team, of course the fans are going to take the most joy out of beating our biggest rivals. We've two very painful defeats in recent memory also to add to that and plenty say they have memories of Mayo fans shoving it to them in the aftermath of those games. (Not me, I might add).

But "belittling" is nonsense in my opinion. Plenty of other fans from other counties seem to take great joy in belittling Mayo's achievements when they lose a final but Dubs fans know exactly how good Mayo have been in recent years.

Oh, spare us all the magnanimous winners nonsense. Dublin GAA executed a coordinated hit job on Lee Keegan before one of those finals ffs.

A couple of pundits is Dublin GAA.

Swings and rounds..... Horan 2012 springs to mind.
