Tipps arrogance is, I think, a bit misunderstood. They have great confidence in themselves gan dabht, but they fully recognise the threat the likes of Galway, Kilkenny, Cork etc pose. There weren't too many Tipp fans overly cocky going into the Galway game the last 3 years for example. They are also inordinately hard on their own team when they lose, similar to the Kerry fans in football.

I think the arrogance comes from their attitude to the weaker counties. They have no concept that a team like Offaly, Dublin, Antrim, Laois etc could ever beat them and shouldn't be on the the same field as them.
I can't understand why they are so nihilistic when they lose. The hurlers can only do their best.
And they usually have very insightful and eloquent managers

Brennan gone as U21 boss

great players don't always make great managers
Westmeath U21s beat them in 2016 and had them on the ropes this year but couldn't finish them off

You mustn't have spent too much time in the company of supporters of the Armagh one hit wonders if you think the Kilkenny lads are arrogant.
If they are they have something to be arrogant about

I spend all my time with Armagh supporters, we have absolutely nothing to be arrogant about, Kilkenny don't even bother to play football, all their recourses go t playing hurling, there are about six decent teams in hurling, the rest are fluff, nobody has the right to be arrogant and again their fans, the ones that I met were arrogant b**tards, just my experience, I despise the county for that as well as their love for the Royals and the brits in general, a loathesome county if ever there was one! :)

Thats five more than the current football teams has to show, with one team winning all before them  ;) 3 in a row and all that..

in saying that Mayo would be decent, the rest just lay down
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Mick Fennelly gone.

A colossus in the middle. Won't be easy finding another specimen like that.

An absolute horse of a man who has been playing on borrowed time for years with the injuries he's had. Probably the best midfielder the game has seen this century.

I thought he retired in 2010 when Shane McGrath schooled him?

Iím sure he is glad he stayed on to win another 4 All Irelands. McGrath might as well have retired there and then though.

This will be a big blow to Cody's rebuilding plans as another core player has gone from which he could build a new team around.

Cody needs some of the periphery like Lennon to stand up and hope Murphy and Paudie Walsh hit some form to help Buckley to build the defence around. The forwards need a big improvement as well.

KK are back into the pack for sure now

All Kilkenny clubs have been asked to observe a minute's silence before their next game to commemorate the retirement of Brian Gavin.

Now, now, PE. Can't recall Tipp doing likewise when John Denton called it quits.

Neither of those refs did Tipp any favours!

I think Brian has to gamble a little bit in the League and try new lads out," he said. "I think three and six are probably two of the big problems he has at the moment. That was seen in the last year or two."

Full-back in particular has been an area of concern since JJ Delaney departed the scene, with PŠdraig Walsh moved from the half-back line last year.

We havenít produced a forward of real class since Richie Hogan. Thatís a worry."

They are 7/1 for the all Ireland
