Can the Dubs do the 3 in a row?

Nobody seems to want to play them in the Division 1 final. 35 games in a row.
Last of the choc-ices there now

It would be a major shock if they didn't.

Donegal stopped the bid in 2014. It can be done

The real question is can anyone stop the five in a row.

And that was a major shock. It took a tactical masterclass, top class performances from Durcan and McHugh and a bit of luck for that to happen though. Mayo last year didn't have the luck or a fair referee but it would have been a greater shock considering their lack of form.

They'll do the 10 in a row.

Will Dubs actually stop going to watch games is a better question. Attendances in parkhead this year remain high even though basically guaranteed to win every match. When Rangers did 9 leagues in a row in 90s, what were gates like?

Depends who the matches are against, but from my own point of view, the answer is an emphatic "yes".

Outside of Kerry, Mayo, Tyrone, Donegal or at a push, Monaghan (away only), there's little point in attending at the moment as you won't see any competitive action.
 
The only reason you'd go would be for the beer.

Wexford in Wexford will be the only Leinster match worth attending this year just for the day out factor.

A serious question.
If all the other counties were peeved off with the amount of money Dublin were getting and proposed a motion to play the AI without the Dubs, could this motion be passed or would it get thrown out?

Don't rule out a trip to Carlow. Last Sunday could set Wexford back, we'll see how much they can pick it up for the league final, and Carlow are able to bring a one off performance on the big day.

Sure the Dubs don't steal the money! It's the 'other counties' who are supporting the grants etc, to the Dubs. It would be a bit hypocritical to throw them out of the All Ireland!
