We need to talk about the Dubs - get it off your chest

Would it be possible to refer all those who have a gripe about the Dublin County Board, Dublin GAA, the Dublin Football team, the Dublin Hurling Team, Dublin supporters, Jim Gavin, Diarmuid Connolly, Dublin in the Rare Auld Times, Molly Malone etc. to this thread? It might then stop them polluting every other thread in which Dublin is mentioned.

I live in hope.

Most people's gripe is with the GAA who sought this situation with their allocation of resources .  Good luck to Dublin team , county board , Galvin etc .  Connolly needs to cool his jets and the many of the supporters could do with being less triumphalist and less myopic.

Dublin senior football teams playing population is adult football leagues division 1-3 , take out clubs second teams too and then please calculate?

Population argument is the poorest.

How many people in Dublin use the possessive we form when referring to Man Utd ?

Probably as many as anywhere else I'd guess?

I like it lads - now let's confine these and similar arguements to THIS thread and not spoil so many other threads with the rehashing of these same arguments. E.g. It didn't take long for a recent thread on Stephen Cluxton (one of the greatest football goalkeepers) to deteriorate into the usual "what to do about Dublin" debate.

smaller county boards might encourage more clubs to form
Dublin used to have a lot of small park based clubs but they've been going out of existence -squeezed by growing mega clubs

I think there's still park clubs in the lower reaches but the super-clubs have gone onto AI club titles.

Dublin lads I've talked to say some of the underage games in Dublin are like cattle marts for the big clubs, when they see a good lad at a smaller club they get onto the parents and try to get little Jimmy to switch, usually breaking about half the written and unwritten rules of the GAA in the process.

A forum full of Ewan (Spewan) McKenna's

You may laugh, but be careful what you wish for, as sometime in the future you may have North Dublin vs. South Dublin competing in the last 4 or 2 every year.

Iv been through this argument before with ignorant posters who let their hate for all things Dublin rule reason and logic.

Please also stop sending the country folk to Dublin too and tell them to stop sending their kids to GAA clubs. Thanks.

Anyway as stated before 5 current players (with Alan Brogan) played senior for Dublin = natural ability = its in the blood in Dublin now.

So enjoy the next few years because 1. Nothing will be done by the GAA, 2. Dublin are always going to be there or there abouts like they always have been 3. This is the way the GAA is now, live with it or move to a different sport. Dublin are the big dog now and its not going to change.
