The best forwards in Connacht (from Roscommon) kicked some wides today

The Best forward in the country from Galway went missing until the game was won today!

Ah come on now. He was quiet most of the game (thought the Ros man marker, McInerney I believe, played very well, for all that Comer shouldve had a penalty), but the time he did hit his purple patch was right at the crunch stage of the game

Damien Comer still has it all to prove. At the moment he is the most overrated player in the country.

Caught a few minutes of Dublin v Longford, should Cooper have walked for the high elbow?
Without question.

The ref probably didn't want to ruin the game  :o

When you play at home you get those marginal decisions, away from Croke Park in an away venue, red all day. Sick of telling people this shit adds up.

Why not just relish the fact that you are witnessing probably the greatest Gaelic football team of all time. Enjoy it - continuous bellyaching is not good for you.

Well done Dublin GAA!!

Amateur sport my hole!

Sure everything is fine.  The cash cow keep the coffers healthy at HQ.

So pipe down minions.

Kildare went through a few bob in their time - not too much to show for it though.

Mickey Harte: voters must chose between ‘culture of death and culture of life’

A group of GAA figures launched the GAA Athletes for a No Vote campaign in Dublin on Saturday. Gaelic Athletes for Life said the Government’s proposals on abortion are not inclusive and “seek to exclude one group of people - the unborn - from society”.

Haven't seen any promotional material yet but they should not be using the association's name at all in my opinion.
Doesn't sit well with me, regardless of which way people swing on this issue.
I wouldn't be happy if there was a 'GAA players for yes' campaign either.

Never mind Dublin.
There are still 4 Qtr Final places through the Qualifiers.

+1 i think Dinny needs to get his hole rather than worrying about dublin all the time. Kildare should be qualifying for last 8 with all their resources. Poaching players from other counties over the last 30 years and trying to buy Declan Browne at it as well. They lads 4 lads who gave up professional sports to play with their county. Did the players get compensated for that?

Ah yes Dublin GAA, where no player ever leaves to play professionally, I wonder why?

Cause and effect! If Dublin were placed in Ulster, would Ulster get stronger or weaker? Personally I believe standards would rise short-term but soon the futility of it all would kick in and Ulster would return to where it came from...

Is that a broken record I hear?

Another stunning performance by the Dubs today. Their focus and icy coolness under pressure is awesome.

Galway had a very good league and for about three quarters of today’s game they performed with spirit. However, if I were a Galway supporter I’d be concerned that today’s performance might be as good as it gets.

I honestly believe that the system that they are developing will never win them anything - it is alien to the great footballing traditions of Galway and stunts the skills of their very talented players. In the last few minutes of today’s game it was pitiful to see Galway forwards conceding frees by fouling Dublin defenders while the clock ran down. I really think that Galway are taking the wrong road.

Well done to the Dubs.

Dubs going full duck, no dinner. Pretty much their strongest available side minus the obvious absentees.

That’s about the strongest team available at the moment. No sign of Paul Mannion - it would be good to have him there if needed.

Football was football then. All right-footers playing in the Galway attack. Rossie goal was a belter.

Dublin have the power, panel and experience for Sunday's final. They've won 5/6 league finals over the past few seasons, are a well-drilled machine and will be anxious to lay down a marker against the coming culchie upstarts from the west. CP is their second home and they'll be keen to return to winning ways after the Monaghan defeat. The odds of 2/9 v 4/1 look about right.

But because sometimes everything we know is wrong, I reckon Galway will bang in a few goals and win by 10+.

The truth is anything could happen on Sunday. Galway have been the outstanding team of this year’s league - and there is no reason why their impressive form should not continue on Sunday. The Dublin teams of this era have been the best that I have ever seen but finals are 50/50 affairs and the trophy is there to be won be either team.

Enjoy the day.

Dublin get 5 games at home in the League! They should never have more than three at home games in the League part, given they have always a home tie in the final! And they travel no-where come championship!

The Dubs did OK in McHale Park (again) this year.

Another victory for the Dublin money machine. One step closer to the edge. Yay.

The best Longford team ever has to be the team of the mid 60s. I saw them play many times during that era and they were one of the classiest teams around, eventually surpassing even the great Galway team of that time.

I saw them play New York in Croke Park in 1966 in what has to be the filthiest display of thuggery (from New York) that was ever seen on a football field.

Galway are still 15/8 to beat Mayo  in May . Have the bookies lost the plot.

League and Championship have always been two different beasts. As they say, May will be a whole new ball game and I’d rate it a 50/50 game.

I was very happy with the Dubs performance yesterday. At half time I was confident that we would take it, but fair dues to Galway they hung on for the draw. We’ve been hearing through the league that Galway have developed a hard edge but they must learn that if you dish it out you must be ready to take it.

Looking forward to the final.

There you have it. Money makes no difference, it's all natural god given talent and hard work.

Every other county needs to work harder.

It seems that Kildare have most work to do.

If I were you I’d forget about Dublin and concern myself with Kildare’s abysmal performances against all the Division 1 teams.
