More denial. Putting the right people in place costs money.

Did the Dublin team go to work today or were they all off on some recovery sessions for the day?

I remember back in the days of Whealan and Jayo the whole Dublin team after a championship game used to go out playing golf in Hollystown of a Monday courtesy of Oliver Barry. Struck me back then that they had it handy lifestyle wise.

Money and funding players lifestyles is a huge part of this and yesterday was like professionals against amateurs. The Dublin players can meet up regularly and train 3 to 4 times a day, that also makes a massive difference. The players themselves admit to this where they say they are all close knit and like a big family.

I'd say most of the Dublin panel don't do much in the line of work during the championship campaign and are basically full time Gaelic Footballers. This is the major advantage they have over every other team.

Some lads here are digging into the past and comparing Kerry and Dublins dominance back in the day. It was almost the same thing back then, all the Kerry lads had jobs fixed up for them back then and were earning money off washing machines and ovens and ranges, it was probably the same for the Dubs once they got up and running.

McCabe has a broken jaw, broken in three places I understand, and underwent surgery this afternoon, a totally accidental collision with a team mate.

Not good, hopefully his recovery is quick and the injury won't effect his play going forward.

p.s. Have to add to the other Mayo posters in relation to the Down supporters and Newry in general, great supporters and lovely venue.

Tough draw for us, Armagh are improving while we look to be waning. They'll fancy their chances of taking down a "big" team here I'd say.

Have we ever played in championship before?

1950 semi final.

We all know what happened after that.

The only thing competitive in this years championship will be for places on the Dublin starting 15.

7
Cluxton will have the flu tomorrow after that

Did I miss something there or are Dublin getting frees for fouling their own players now?

Dublin were actually for the taking here today.

Bullshit. For once Spillane is correct. Dubs only flooting about with Meath in 1st half but Jim Gavin will say they have a lot to work on.

Dublin crowd leaving.

I suppose in 5 years time Meath will have both a defensive and offensive game plan mastered to compete with the dubs

With all due respect to the young lad James Conlon should have gone off ages a

Ya too small for this stuff

Not often you’d be saying Meath have no forwards.

13
Should’ve been black card for small there

The first 10 minutes was enjoyable

Brennan lost hold of the ball.

He took 9 steps prior to that. Doesn’t matter Donegal always on top anyhow but it ruined the match from a neutral perspective.
