Thanks for the above honesty, i would never give up, think of the euphoria when it does happen.

Surprised nobody mentioned Donal Vaughan getting a straight red for striking John Small, Small was going to be sent off, all Donal Vaughan had to do was keep his head, hands  by his side and turn away but no, he couldnt resist. What a difference that would have made to Mayo, 15 v 14 with a good chunk of the game left.

I am surprised this thread is still going, By reading the posts on here it is still hurting, lots of complaints and excuses.

Anyone want to summarise the excuses here:

Cork   0-17           Mayo   1-11   
Meath 0-12           Mayo   1-9               (Draw)
Meath 2-9           Mayo   1-11               (Replay)
Kerry   0-13           Mayo   1-7   
Kerry   1-20           Mayo   2-9   
Kerry   4-15           Mayo   3-5   
Donegal 2-11           Mayo   0-13   

Dublin 2-12            Mayo   1-14   
Dublin 2-9           Mayo   0-15   
Dublin 1-15           Mayo   1-14   
Dublin 1-17           Mayo   1-16

Not so long ago you could have put up the same stats about Dublin. But ye got a bit more help getting over the line with a litany of home fixtures and Financial doping!

I really hope ye win! A Kerry win would only prolong this madness for more years!

The above is finals only, Dublin were usually embarresed by the semis by Kerry, Tyrone and others, but the bottom line was Dublin were not good enough to win it and  i think that in most cases acceptable view held by the majority of Dublin fans, not excuses blaming everything and everyone before looking at themselves. However, if you talking early 90s, they did eventually get over the line. And i do believe Mayo have been good enought to win one, but have blown it.

If this continues, Attendances, Sponsorship, Partnerships, TV money, Corporate boxes, Jersey and merchandise sales, will all decline. You have to love RTE, the general media et al who have stuck their heads in the sand for fear of offending their sponsors. There has been a general media shut down. Brolly (the voice of the people) has his gob in the trough, brown nosing at every opportunity and totally ignoring the elephant in the room.

Will be interesting to see how the Multi-million organistaion called the GAA deals with the shortfall in revenue.
Pundits won't even bother talking up matches.

 "I was interested in their game management after Lee Keegan’s goal. I noticed that they there was a signal given and they went into a hand-passing drill back and forth to take the sting out of the game after that score. Any bit of rebellion that Mayo may have had was drained out by this couple of minutes of patient recycling. This was only the 52nd minute. The 12 points in 12 minutes is over: they have the game won and they can control the tempo and just see it out. "

Patient recycling is like watching paint dry. Punters will switch off and hurt GAA revenues.  The Dublin funding paradox.

Its called game management. It is what is missing from the Mayo lads over the last decade.

Thanks Kerry for Sam.
You better set up under a new alias.

Sure it happens in every game club and county, your winning by a bit, slow it down, hold the ball, run it, its more common sense than anything. The guy above thinks money makes the dubs do it.

Thanks Kerry for sam
you are now up to 503 posts  ;D ;D

Please dont compare me with him. thanks.

However i agree some posters out there like @mup and @seafoid and couple of the mayo posters could possibly be him posting idiotic posts.

It's interesting how infatuated Dublin people are with Mayo. Over on reservoir dubs they've an entire thread dedicated to taking the piss out of Aidan O'Shea.

Nothing new there, sure they take the piss out of everyone including the likes of Dorothy (Donaghy) Childish but amusing.

The one thing no one has mentioned is it a case the GAA are compensating cost for the amount of free tickets given away. i.e 2 to every club, sponsers, dignataries etc. Id say its a fair few thousand.

Eh? Clubs dont get free tickets.

Are two tickets not sent out to every club and do they pay for them? i thought they were free all these years.

Morto.

I am terribly embarrassed about the whole thing!!

Il add it to the GAA wiki 101 - no. 86, club AI tickets are not free. . .

Funny how Dublin fans don’t complain about the ref, as they know they’re likely to win the game anyway. Had it been 15 years ago, you’d have heard their whinging. Funny what success does.

I've been on the board since 2002 - never once complained about a ref. Can't really remember any Dub contributor in those dark times (and they were plenty dark) complaining about refs, either their performance or their appointment. Always too disappointed in our own lack of performance in key games.

Crazy world now that us not complaining about a ref is taken as arrogance. Would you prefer if we did?

Is this comedy?

6 Senior Football All-Irelands
5 u21 All-Irelands
1 Minor All-Ireland
1 Junior All-Ireland
5 National Leagues
Just the 15 Leinster Senior Championships
11 u21 Leinster Titles
5 Minor Leinster Titles
1 National League Hurling
1 Senior Leinster Hurling
4 u21 Leinster Hurling
6 Minor Leinster Hurling Titles

Yea real f**king dark times.....just the 61 provincial and national titles.....

A great achievement by Dublin while being underfunded (per head)with development money and nowhere near top spenders on our senior teams (Dual total amount).

Well done Dublin

A planned protest in Killarney on Saturday.

This is great   :D ;D

They are rattled down in Kerry and they have become an embarrassment to themselves and to the country. They are terrified that 1. they will get a hiding


People are asking why no objection to the ref from Dublin fans, its quite simple, we are not bothered by who refs it. The football does the talking.

Joe Molloy on Newstalk OTB debunked all the Gough myths yesterday evening. Available on podcast for anyone interested in facts over myths.

The Kerry ex-players are out in force railing against him. I doubt they actually want to replace him, just put that pressure on him not to be seen to be favouring the Dubs, so that 50/50s are more likely to go Kerry.

Chap would have grown up hating Dublin in all likelihood, but now he's an adult and experienced ref, you've got to assume he'll have no bias, deliberate or accidental, and trust him to get on with the job to the best of his ability.

Hound, iv warned you about this before , stop speaking logic and commin sense, lads on this forum cant compute it.

However, you are right, Dublin wont be able to buy a free in the final now.

I have it on whatsapp, not sure how to post pictures.

There was phone number gate in the 00s too, or was that bullsh@t too?

Was it the same source as the James Horan earns 70k with Mayo ;D

Doesnt mean its not true...

TheGreatest, have you proof of your source's word regarding James Horan and 70k or not?

I cant prove it. I was only told that, that it is apparentley that figure, could be rumour, i never said it was a fact. It wouldnt suprise me though, its elite county level, sure some coaches can get 20-30 k etc in Dublin, Anthony Daly doesnt manage Kimacud for the good of his health. Nor Anthony Rainbow Ballyboden.

As yes, i know there paid professionals in the Dublin set up too.

I'm sure what Farrandeelin is getting at is you shouldn't post in that manner if you have no proof and basing something on hearsay/rumour.

Is Horan's 70k a year worth it?

Fair point, is Jack O Connor and Paul Galvin taking up roles many miles from the Kingdom for the good of their health too !

Still no proof to back up your lies.

Only lies if proven untrue.

So no inter county or club manager are being paid? Outside of minumun expenses for travel etc.
