I agree with a lot about what he says and some good points made above about large towns, I.E one team in Portlaose of 15k etc.

But this:

The very obvious thing to do is to divide Dublin up into several different teams. That suggestion causes palpitations among the Dublin hierarchy who just want to let the good times roll. That recommendation was made more than 15 years ago by a committee of top brains in Croke Park but has been ignored by all those at central level since, and of course Dublin swept it under the carpet as fast as possible. There it remains, depriving hundreds of young Dublin footballers of playing underage for some Dublin team and ensuring great adult footballers are frozen out.

Would Dublin supporters warm to these divisions and turn out in numbers in Croke Park? Would there be more at Dublin Fingal versus Dublin South than Dublin against Wicklow or Wexford? Even Jim Gavin can't make that look exciting. The present Leinster Championship is a dead duck. It is not retrievable. Hoping that something will turn up is not a policy.


1. Over my dead body and the body of all Dublin supporters.
2. If it did happen I would never support a divisional Dublin team, I know others wouldnt either.

Hilarious stuff on here, I am sure Cluxton is more than happy with his 6th All Ireland medal. I hope he doesn't go.

Time for the Pen Pushers to be removed from the all star picks.

I bet that inside you are fuming.

Get over it.

I know you would like to think that but not really, haven't really paid attention to them since they became the Annual All Star Mayo sympathy awards. (Not this year though). Cluxton will go down as one of the greats, everyone who is not biased knows he is one of the greats, that's that.

I rather players winning all Irelands than All Stars.

Still obsessing over Mayo I see.

Come back to me when there are dozens of threads, pages and posts on them like there is on Dublin and Dublin players on this forum, now that's an obsession.

Tyrone, welcome to the world of Dublin, although no where near as bad as the noughties.

Its a long way from the sweetheart writings of Mayo.

Smart words from a dumb man/woman!!
You sir/madam are perhaps the most consistent gobshite I have ever had the pleasure to encounter!

The pleasure Is all yours my friend.

Alternative views and opinions must not be welcome on this, views that goes against some main posters it seems, with agenda's.

Its a fair comment, some counties get an easier ride than others in the press. Mayo is being one of them, Tyrone on the other side of it.

€ for € I can guarantee Dublin spend more on their backroom team than every other county in Ireland. It's where money actually has an affect, so to equate " I can guarantee you if you went into any county set-up the resources are probably very similar. You'll have a strength and conditioning coach, a nutritionist, a psychologist, a medical team, a tactical team" is just disingenuous bollix.

In Your opinion.

Thee top teams have them, if it costs Dublin more to get them which is probably does then that's a Dublin issue.

I actually don't know where… If you talk about expenses we get the same as everyone else, and probably less because we don't have to travel that far. I don't see where the money is going, for me. And I guarantee you if you went into any county set-up the resources are probably very similar. You'll have a strength and conditioning coach, a nutritionist, a psychologist, a medical team, a tactical team.

"Just go through Stephen Cluxton's speech and ask other county teams have they got that? Because they have. There is very little difference.
 


He's right, of the top teams anyway.

No once you exclude travel expenses are Dublin spending more than every other county, so he's not right of the top teams!

Sorry I don't know what you mean. He says his personal expenses are less due to non travel is what I think I am reading.
