Dublin are juiced up to the hilt.

It’s time someone said it.

It’s fairly obvious watching that.

Pace pace pace all night long.

They have pace everywhere.
When they go, they go hard & fast.
Then someone else has a go.
It's not the same fella every time.

Reports this evening that a @PaircUiCha0imh deal has been done have been dismissed by a well-placed source as premature - they're not aware of any deal. Also dismissed by source close to organisers - "adamant" no deal struck.
Expect clarification early in the week

Coldrick's a proud Meath man.
He hates both teams equally.

Unofficial, but looks like it will go ahead in PUC according to those in the know.

No, you're wrong.
It's better than it has ever been.
Apparently.
Which is why people who've played and watched the game for decades can't be arsed with it anymore.

Interesting to note Aussie Rules is in a similar state of chassis re rule changes at the moment.

Nah, for them to be proven right the GAA would have to dig their heels in now and refuse to budge.
I'm already noticing quite a few of these types on social media saying the organisers should tell the GAA to stick it.
They don't want an outcome where people are saying, "Fair play to the GAA, they admitted they made a mistake."
This has little or nothing to do with Liam Miller for those people.
It's just a stick to beat the GAA with.
I would agree that HQ are basically walking around handing out sticks for the last couple of months, but if there is a reversal here it's because ordinary people, specifically ordinary GAA people, raised their voices, similar to the Newbridge fiasco.
It's interesting that the DG and President are meeting the organisers, which again leads me to believe there may be two distinct factions at play here.

That's fair enough but where does all this giving into public outcry end , sure will there be any need for a governing body at all?

There was an outcry about the Newbridge issue because the optics were so bad, i.e. the big bad corporate GAA basically telling Kildare they had to play in Croke Park even though they were entitled to play at home. Issues like this, which are so inherently unfair, suck in the casual observer who will happily go to bat for 'the little guy'.
In the Miller case, we are talking about a young sportsman, with a young family, who died of cancer.
The money raised by the game will help support his family and cancer research.
The word 'cancer' is emotive enough at the best of times, but when you have someone like Vicky Phelan, who carries herself with such dignity and integrity tweeting extensively about the PUC issue, you need to understand that this is much much bigger than 'the soccer crowd want to use our pitch'.
This is a very specific set of circumstances, unlikely to be repeated again anytime soon.
And if they are repeated, the right thing to do now will still be the right thing to do then.

If they do see sense and resolve this issue, I will be delighted for the following reasons:
a) It is 100% the right & decent thing to do and will raise a lot of money for a great cause
and,
b) It will stick it right up all the GAAAAAHH/Grab All Association muppets on social media, who are using this issue as a vehicle for their virulent hatred of gaelic games.

The GAA President and Ard Stiúrthóir, along with representatives of the Cork Committee, are to seek a meeting with the organising committee of the Liam Miller Tribute Match to discuss issues around the game.

Hard luck Dinny, hugely promising win and nice to beat Kildare at u-17 & u-20 in the same year!  ;)
Bringing the likes of McBride in particular through to senior level is the challenge now.

Being discussed right now on Newstalk.
What a shambles.
From a PR perspective, this has to be the association's annus horribilis.
