Am I right in saying that no manager/team has recorded more wins against Dublin since 2013 than Mickey Harte/Tyrone?
Don't know but true to form he's opposed to the new back pass rule.
Pope Francis is a Catholic.

Back-pass rule brings nothing to the game.  In fact, it may draw more forwards back into midfield defence in order to create more kick-out options. The full press by most teams is pretty effective and good craic to watch.-don't see why it should be made more difficult for the team trying to come out and attack.

The killing of games is generally done by the half-backs, mid-fielders.  If you could eliminate the touchline to touchline passing in the middle third by havin a max pass (foot or fist) count, you would instantly eradicate the 20-30 minutes of boredom that we have to endure in a lot of big games.  Poor oul' keepers...
if we had better referees I would fully agree but they cant ref the rules that are there so i'm really not in favour of introducing more .
easy way to stop the lateral passing is to allow a good robust tackle,
As long as there is no strike or  hold then play on the soccer style shithousery would end very quickly and ease the burden on refs

The problem with this is that (more often than not) the lateral passing is executed in a safe zone where there are no tacklers.  You have to somehow force players into kicking the ball into the forwards.

Well deserved win.  The better team won. Take the beating and move on.  Sense of entitlement is gonna be your downfall and the consistent cynicism (as pointed out by mcconville) will be your downfall.  McCarthy and Fenton should get the book thrown at them.

Testament to Dublin that they were able to bring on Connolly and still win. Bar one sweet pass, he was piss poor and could have cost them the game.  Must be hard to watch for Dublin players on the sidelines that have been putting in the hard yards all year.

Why are Mayo and Kerry "the big three"??

They form two of the three teams that have been at the top since 2008 and according to the results have been unbeaten by Tyrone in the championship since 2008.

If I was asked to back either Donegal or Mayo for 2020 I think I would favor Donegal to be honest.
These top 3 debates are a load of nonsense anyway as it's a top 1. Kerry, Donegal, Mayo, Tyrone could beat each other on any given day. They're just fighting for the right to play in the AI final and maybe get a weekend craic out of things before getting bate.

And yet Tyrone have not beaten Kerry or Mayo in over 11 championship games that really mattered, never mind the beatings administered by Dublin. So, on current and historical standing, Tyrone are behind Mayo and Kerry by some margin. The only debate is whether they or Donegal can be considered for the top of the next level down.

Even though Mayo were dumped by Kildare last year,  taught a lesson by Roscommon and hammered by Kerry and Dublin this year.  Doesn't add up.

Haven't always thought this way(and have issues with some other things outside of the game) but right now Harte has to stay.  The first year of exploring new tactics and still in the top 3 with some exciting prospects coming through. As much kick passing to forward line as you'll see from any team.  Time for Col Cav to hang them up, though I'd say.  For those demanding his dismissal, I'd be careful what you wish for.  Harte's constant challenging for Sam seems to irk a few here and there's very much a 'Croppies lie down' sentiment from certain sections that spurs the man on.  I think there's a lack of appreciation for what it takes to be at the top table year in-year out and Harte has done this.  I would argue that his backroom could be bolstered with the right people to make some tweaks in the psychological game. The Dubs have this mastered.

Would you call it a success for Mayo/Donegal?
Mayowestros won the League
Donegal retained Ulster.
3 other Counties won silverware

So, you are saying that Mayo, Donegal will be sitting back today saying, "That was was a successful season".  Really?

1. Dublin
2. Tyrone/Kerry
3. Mayo
4. Cork/Donegal/Roscommon

That's how it is.

Tyrone would be ranked below Donegal, Dublin, Kerry given that they lost comprehensively to all three this season. The only teams you can rank them above in this list is Cork & Roscommon. Mayo would have more than likely beaten them had they met, they have shown repeatedly this decade that they canít compete in Croke Park against good teams. On the basis of beating Tyrone well and drawing with Kerry you would have to rank Donegal above them.

Bar one performance against a below par Donegal I can see zero evidence for rating Mayo above Tyrone this season

Fair enough. It's tough to make the case for Tyrone beating them as well though, given how their season went.

Donegal got bate by an average Mayo team with injuries and had only one key player out. Not convinced that they would bate Tyrone in Super 8's.

Donegal Marginally better but wouldn't back them to qualify.

Was thinking of how they put it up to Kerry, Dublin for a half and Tyrone, plus good underage teams coming through. They'll be looking to better themselves next year. Maybe a little generous.  Roscommon/Kildare last year were woeful in Super Eights. Cork were better than that.
