Title: Bad refereeing against Dublin or cheating opposition will cost Dublin 3 in a row
Post by: TheGreatest on August 07, 2017, 09:52:23 AM
The vultures are circling throughout the land with the smell of blood lingering from Jones road. They want Dublin beaten, they don't want Dublin to do 3 in a row, it will be bad for the game they say, we cannot let this happen they say. This thought process will filter through to every fan, every Croke park official  and every officiating team, give them nothing will be the cry. The greatest team of all time who have shown certain counties how to play the game in the right way, the beautiful total football displayed time and time again, the humility of the management and players, the gentlemen like approach to media and fans, the volunteer work they do not highlighted in the media, whether it be feeding the homeless around Dublin City centre or the hours and hours of visiting kids at camps, mini-leagues, hospitals.

The players get vilified at every chance, one of the greatest players for club and county to play the game was witch hunted for a suspension. A conspiracy that will come to light in later years, the masses celebrated for 4 nights and 4 days, they sneered and cheered. They also sneer at their manager,  the most astute, down to earth, calm, gentlemen, with a great mind, who serviced his country through his career in the armed services and who served his county as a player, coach and management. They sneer at him, why, is it jealousy, is it that they so want to be like him, his loyalty to his players, his county?

The GAA and all officials knows what's at stake here, they won’t state it publicly but its in their thought process, Do every to help the opposition against Dublin. The Media know it too. The media hate Dublin, hate that the players won’t talk to certain journalist, hate writing the same pieces every September.

Now at the semi-final stage, playing good opposition, but not better, it is a general feeling in the capital that the only way Dublin will be beaten is bad officiating in whatever form that may take, a non-red card, a last minute free against or opposition cheating like diving of the opposition, sledging by the opposition, some old traits to come out from a time long past. The world and its mother hoping Dublin are beaten so they can sneer and cheer and write abusive comments on social media and GAA forums.

You may not get that chance and it will be a case of who's laughing now.

Kind regards

Load of balls. Dubs play great football, good for the game and the vast majority of their supporters are good sport. I for one don't mind if the Dubs are the benchmark for years to come. It's up to other counties to produce 20 players good enough to compete.

Having said that it's no gimme that they will win Sam again. Tyrone will match their lung power and their football ability. Plus you can't ever write off the Kerry men who never show their full worth till September. Still all to play for, for the mighty Dubs.

A great and and well thought opening post.

i agree entirely. It's sad that this level of spite has become part of the game. The game is not just 70 mins but part of our culture and heritage. It's an expression of ourselves and how we like to be viewed on the world stage. It's a shame when the greatest ambassadors of this cultural expression are shot down at every turn by bitter fools. Take heed GAA fans, these attacks and constant abuse fired at Dublin can't be contained and will destroy the greatest collective prize, our pride and dignity.

I don't understand why anyone would want Dublin bet just because they are Dublin. They play the best football, they bring great crowds and atmosphere. The dubs have done the gaa a great service by showing teams how to attack and infiltrate the blanket defence. I'd rather see them win than a lot of other teams

Maybe you could put this on the other thread about Dublin.

Remember the one you just bumped up because no one had posted in it for over a week?

Amazing post, so well written, thoughtful & right on the money.

Here in Donegal we are talking of little else except how Dublin are going to be badly done over in the coming weeks. If HQ do nothing we are going to throw a couple of car loads together & make sure justice is done.

I don't know what you are worrying about. Apparently this is the greatest team of all time (kerry team of the 70s/80s wouldnt keep the ball kicked out to them) and nobody, even the ref will get close to them. Tyrone may as well stat at home.
