Keegan the only nailed on All Star for Mayo. Maybe Ryan O'Donoghue as well.

Ruane is also nailed on in midfield.

If his final performance doesn't go against him then yes, but he was poor on the biggest day of all.

Morgan

O'Sullivan
McNamee
Hampsey

Keegan
McGeary
Harte

Ruane
Kilpatrick

Sludden
Rian O'Neill
Meyler

McCurry
Clifford
O'Donoghue

Kerry and Dublin are hamstrung by the fact that they failed to beat any Div 1 team in the Championship. Mayo beat 2, Tyrone beat 3 (and Mayo).

O'Sullivan and Clifford get theirs on the basis of their performances against Tyrone. P Clifford and S O'Shea struggled against Tyrone and were dominated by Meyler and Hampsey.

R O'Neill gave the best individual display this Championship against Monaghan.

It's easy to give them out to Tyrone this year as they had to beat numerous good teams - reigning Ulster champs, 3 division 1 teams and last years AI runners up.

I've a feeling McNamee will be done out of another all star, he deserved one in 2015 too but was overlooked there.

Angelo would agree with all of that.

I would not doubt it. He was a very reasonable and pragmatic poster.

 ;D

Rian O'Neill has zero chance. One decent game in an Ulster semi doesn't cut it. He's in there as a token gesture to Burns. Mind you an All-Star nomination itself is probably the biggest achievement for Armagh football in over a decade. Well done the Orchard.
If he was playing for Kerry he’d be rated as highly as David Clifford. Fully deserves that nomination.

If he was playing for Kerry he'd have played in the AI semi final ffs and maybe would deserve a shout! Having a good game while exiting the Ulster semi against a team that's never even won a championship game in croker never mind got near an AI hardly warrants an all-star nomination. Let's get real.

It shouldn't go against him. He was one of main reason why Mayo won the Connacht final and beat Dublin in the AI semi final.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Just seen Meyler & McGeary are nominated in the backs, that's idiotic. A clear agenda to get someone an All Star in the forwards who doesn't deserve one.

It does seem like there is a reason for switching those 2 players into defence but it's not exactly like there is an abundance of top quality forwards that need accomodating. The 3 POTY candidates are now all nominated defenders.

Who actually picks these All Stars? I remember that it used to be a select list of journalists, is this still the case.
