Tom Parsons, the bad guy from Home Alone

Home advantage counts in every sport. To think different contravenes every known published article on it. Croke Park is a massive advantage to Dublin and that shouldn't be even up for debate.
Sure but what % difference does it make? GAA has different fan dynamics to soccer. Maybe they can't be compared.

Also this Dub team looks very like Cody pomp Kilkenny.  Will Kildare be ready for the fall or can we expect more of the battered wife commentary indefinitely?

In soccer it's worth 0.6 of a goal.
In NFL is 2.8 points.
In AFL it's 7 points.
In NBA it's 2.33 points
In Super Rugby it's worth 5 & 10 points if International Travel involved.

So based on the above I would say Croke is worth 2/3 points to Dublin, enough to win 4 All-Irelands by a point...



Except a big part of what makes them advantageous is the home support vastly out numbering the away

Clarke
Fitzsimmons Harrison Higgins
McCaffrey Barret Boyle
Parsons McCarthy
McLoughlin AOS O'Callaghan
Doherty Geaney Moran

Mayo bias perhaps? 🙈

Harrison and AOS shoudln't be let near the All-Star team. Parsons hardly deserves on either to be honest, SOS was the workhorse for Mayo and if he had more than 50 minutes in it he probably could have made the grade.

Have to disagree particularly on parsons, you dont really notice until hes gone or you pay attention to it but hes arguably the key player for mayo

Enda Smith possibly and Geaney at a push. The rest from the two finalists. Anything else is tokenistic nonsense.

Smith? He's lucky to be nominated. I can't recall him playing too well against Mayo.

I can't recall too many Mayo folk playing well against Galway. Or Derry. Should they all be ruled out?

Smith's performance against Galway was the best individual performance I saw all year and his ability to pre-occupy Lee Keegan was the main reason Roscommon got a replay.

The fourth best chance on that list of midfielders, but possibly still a chance.

Ahead of Kung Fu Cavanagh and the Kildare chap.

All Stars have been pointless since 2005 and arguably long before that.

Earlier rounds count for nothing in all star terms and smith did sweet f all in croker

Fair play to DC. Showed excellent leadership in last 15 minutes and kicked a great point.

Won the free too

Havent read this thread, but personally love Diarmuid Connolly. Fantastic footballer and takes awful abuse.

Did anyone notice Lee Keegan fire something at the ball just as Rock struck the winning free? Kilkenny noticed this and ran straight at him which led to his black card. During this commotion Keegan picked up the object and handed it to Tony McEntee who put it in his pocket. It was a completely shitty  act from a player I admire massively.

Yes, it was Keegan and I thought it was a sod of grass at the time.
