Stallion, sorry trailer, will be back I'm sure. Crypto isn't performing massively - if it surges upwards he'll come in and tell us.

Commentators shouting for that penalty. He left the leg in - sneaky enough - but then Kane always at that too.

Modric still got it.

If foden has a bad injury big blow to city. Likely best player this year.

Foden some operator. Let him on his left with a bit of space and you're stuffed.

European game on RTÉ news I think.

You have to show the national team's game I would have thought...
They have lost finals though not in a while but they've either played mayo or just been a better team.

I still firmly believe that in their 6 in a row if they'd played Mayo more in semi finals they would not have 6 in a row.

they beat Kerry last year because they were better than them, they beat Tyrone because they were better, they beat Mayo because Mayo aren't good in finals. kerry would have beat them two years ago in a final because they were better.

Also Fenton, Kilkenny, McCarthy etc will drop off and drop off soon.

You still can't answer why Meath and Kildare are broken but not other teams who are much closer to dublin - i.e. Derry and Kerry and Tyrone when they get themselves in gear will be there or thereabouts.

I don't really know what you are looking here. Kick dublin out of the championship?
They are currently at 1 in a row(out of 3). What does it matter whether it was a final or not where they were beat?

Quote from: imtommygunn on April 09, 2024, 09:59:33 AMSo what are you suggesting? Should there be a leinster championship without dublin or should there be no leinster championshipt?

It's broken so either it's dumped or it's fixed.

Dublin is out of control . The system worked as long as Dublin was disorganised. Sports often have this problem of a big population centre or financial centre that is disproportionate to the rest.  In Rugby it's England and France. The solution is to give the 6 teams the same money allocation, not to give England and France the money raised in their countries. 

I don't know exactly how US sport works in detail but they value competition very highly and have drafts to even out teams.

Something is going to have to be done with Dublin but until people demand change nothing will change. This is about power.

Steve Walt

Fixed how?

How come other counties are not a million miles of Dublin yet Leinster counties are?

(I think Kildare's management team is broken for a start and if they fix that it may help...)

Far right

They've lost their meaning a bit.

exactly. Sounds like a paid journalist with little else to talk about.
Quote from: Rossfan on April 09, 2024, 10:15:15 AMWhatever about Dublin dominating Leinster (they are) surely a Cpunty like Meath with its tradition, population and economic advantages should at least be fielding as goid or better teams than Monaghan, Ros etc.

Exactly - they have had the league and the back door and now the new championship (assuming they are in it). Kildare are like that too. The leinster championship ends with only one game a year - there's loads more games.
Bayern are on 11 though Harry Kane has put an end to that  ;D
So what are you suggesting? Should there be a leinster championship without dublin or should there be no leinster championshipt?

Was it not Bobby Gould??
It'll be very interesting how wicklow go against Kildare. Kildare have really dropped off though you would expect would still be favourites.
