It doesn't matter the team or the sport, the lack of competitiveness is bad for any sport. It's one thing for a team as Man U in the EPL that had won a lot but were at least challenged for their titles. It's not just the Dublin fans potentially turning off it's everyone.
Of course this might be Dublin peaking before a barren spell but either way it's in the GAA's own interest to try level the playing field as much as possible. I said it before, they should standardise the resources and facilities available to each county. GAA can do nothing about population differences but it should be able to ensure that Leitrim minors to seniors should have access to the same quality of gyms, training pitches, specialist coaching as their Dublin or Cork counterparts.
The NFL realised in the late 80's that they couldn't let the teams with the most money dominate the league as they new it would ruin the sport. So they brought in the salary cap and shared out all advertising revenue equally. The GAA should take note.
