Armagh should throttle them, to be honest. Might be best for everyone involved as it should force the Westmeath CB to remove Cribbin.

According to Bernard Flynn yesterday's press conference was a circus, a stunt, totally bizarre and a joke. Over reacting much?

He's probably right though. Gavin has his own press man (who was formerly press officer for the Defence Forces), and there is no way this was off the cuff. All pre ordained with the words carefully chosen. A stunt, but with what goal? We can only speculate.

Speculate? It's to create a siege mentality. It's so see-through I'd have to question the emotional intelligence of any Dublin footballer who has fell for it.

???

Almost everyone agrees with him on all of that.

McStay isn't going short anyway ;)
Rochford needs to get himself a 3 year plan.

Hard work doesn't seem to bother McStay. Dunno about Rochy.

Whats the odds on James Horan to return next year?

If he is willing to give up Jobs with The Star, The Western People, Newstalk and Sky Sports. Not to mention his own 'Real' Job with Coca Cola. I'm sure the Mayo job would compensate him enough to give most of that up? :P

McStay gave up as much if not more to deal with an even worse CB than Horan had. I think in reality the fact the team will need to rebuild next year will put him off more than any of the above..

Not sure who they'd turn too in the event of Rochford leaving.

I wouldn't be surprised if Horan has his eyes on the Galway job once Kevin Walsh has had enough.

Seriously? The Galway job is far less attractive than you seem to think it is.

I'm sorry, but what has he done to right it, Fuzz? There's a straight line of indiscipline through his entire career.

Watched galway training in the (wind tunnel)yesterday practising alot of long kicks for points,in to both sets of goals, Heaney looks to be injured,galway need to be on their game,the rossies are no slouches,I have genuine fear for our backline,if Ross could get parity in midfield it promises to be one hell of a match!!

A midfield trio of Flynn,Ó Curraoin,Conroy will have too much strength and experience for Roscommons midfield which is Enda Smith a forward who rarely does the required defensive work for a midfielder and O Rourke a lad just out of U21 level and plays intermediate club football in Roscommon meaning this game could be a massive step up for him. The rossies have little or no midfield cover on their bench either which makes things even worse.

I don't know what Enda Smith you've been watching this year, but then again you're one of those accounts that's strangely evasive about their county so I don't know what to think.

Bringing up TOR playing Intermediate football is true nonsense when you consider he's been part of county set-ups with mostly the same group of lads for the last eight or nine years. Best midfield pairing we've had in at least three or four seasons.

I expect Galway to chicken out and not mark up all our backs on kick-outs meaning we'll retain possession quite easily with short kick-outs. Anyone who kicks deep when they don't have to is a mug.

The sad part is the GAA is run by people with similarly myopic outlooks as Zulu. Only the GAA. Only Ireland.

1. Stop the ridiculous funding
2. Move them out of Croke Park for the league and Leinster bar the final
3. Sell the shirt sponsorship for every county to the highest bidder, funds go into a central pot.
4. Cap all expenditure, any over spend to be hit with wealth tax as per the AFL

That's just off the top of my head if the GAA want fair and equitable games they need to think more socialist less capitalist.

All major American sports implement hard caps and a multitude of other measures aimed to redistribute wealth and support smaller market teams because they know the only way the product is viable long term is with as much parity as humanly possible.

Why Zulu refuses to see the forest for the trees is a question that comes back to intention - is he part of the Dublin support network that willfully ignores all these facts or is he just on here on an alt account to try to wind up others? I have my doubts at this stage.

Sorry I thought that was a coherent idea you had but apparently you were just throwing out random shite as you don't have any solution to the problems we have. So, just to be crystal clear, we split Dublin and leave everything else as it is and we will be ok?

You seem to be getting very upset now that everyone has cottoned on to how ridiculous and intransient your stance is. You're talking about adults when it's you who has some growing up left to do.

Because it's nonsense. Population and the hard work of volunteers is a huge part of it too. Of course funding should be available to all counties and those with good plans should be supported but Dublin's population will ensure most counties will rarely compete with them again.

Population yes volunteers is no every county has hard working volunteers.

Dublin have many organic factors population and culture being one. It's the inorganic factors that you are your ilk refuse to recognise as the primary factors for Dublin's success finance and home advantage. It's not rocket science..

I'm not refusing to recognise anything Dinny. Population, when harnessed, is the most significant factor. Not every county has the same number of hard working volunteers. Dublin would have loads of volunteers and with success they are very focused and kids are very engaged. 

Of course money is a factor, a significant one, and if anyone is talking about a fairer distribution of funding or increasing funding to certain counties I'd be in total agreement but Dublin will always be a strong because they have the numbers and are now organised.

I'm not in favour of hindering Dublin but I'm completely supportive of helping other counties.

No shít.

Please expand on your plan to keep provincial championships while amalgamating counties and splitting others. Otherwise leave the adults to talk.

I'm not going to converse with you ZULU. You look at the world through Dublin eyes. You care not for how Westmeath were humiliated today. Your interest is only in the BIG guns.

+1. Either a Dub or a WUM.

Ha! ignoring home advantage and support teams due to financial disparity Kildare are a work in progress. There is a massive will in the media for us to be competitive in the final and have over stated our display against Meath but the pragmatic Kildare fan knows we will be beat. What we are looking for is a performance, we are a young side but promotion and Leinster final means our realistic targets have been achieved. A quarter final appearance would be a nice bonus.

Dublin do not want a competitive Leinster why would they? They will be setting out to hammer Kildare, our players need to believe they can compete. I think they will but Dublin by about 7.

Getting your excuses in early. Sad - as The Donald might say.

This reminds me of those Scientology documentaries, people so indoctrinated they can't do anything but parrot the institutional line. In the case of Dublin it's deny that they play all their games at home, ignore their massive population and infrastructure advantages and the fact they soak up more grant money and sponsorship money than almost all other counties combined.

Sad - as anyone would say.
