I don't think it reflects poorly on any other team at all. Dublin probably have a team that will be compared to the best teams to ever grace the game. When they kick into gear I don't think any team could live with them in an out and out football game. They'll hammer some of the best teams in Ireland over the next few years though that is not to say they won't be beaten this year, they might be.

This is getting a bit like Cas Ceirnín on the radio from 1-20pm to 2-00pm on a Saturday with Séan Ó Duibhir before the sports show starts.

But got a text earlier from the Casey ones to give a big 'Scairt Amach' to the Craobh Rua, Camloch Hurlers who went out of their road to weigh into the Club and give support to the best GAA Social Club in Ireland on Monday when things were looking dark.

Maith sibh!

Never suggested Cork, whatever the 15 picked, would beat Dublin or even get closer later on in the championship when Dublin are at full strength. I simply pointed out that it is incorrect to suggest Cork were close to full strength last Sunday, they weren't. I do think Cork will give Dublin a better game should they meet in championship but man for man, Dublin are the best team in Ireland and if they keep focused I don't think anyone will beat them. On their day, Dublin could annihilate any other team in Ireland.
Doesn't say much for rest or does others have to play poorly to allow Dublin to be on their day?

Fair enough. Actually think the nature of defeat on Sun will make it more difficult for Cork if they play Dublin in Summer.  Will certainly give Dublin a tough game all the same.

The Conservative mayor of Swindon has resigned after he called disabled people "Mongols" and questioned whether they should be allowed to have sex.

Well you've just named two, John O'Rourke will also probably start and Ruairi Deane if he makes progress from his injury is also a potential starter, that's four straight off. I don't know who is giving you information but some of those U21's will certainly be looked at by the senior management. With Kelly, Cahalane, Walsh and O'Neill all to fully recover from injuries there is a lot of improving in that Cork side.   

I don't know why you mentioned who has to come back for Dublin as that's entirely irrelevant to the point I made, i.e Cork aren't as close to full strength on Sunday as some were making out.

Mentioned Dublin players missing as response to your inference that Cork to be a fair deal stronger and that gap to Dublin mightn't be as significant as Sunday showed.

I think a full strength Dublin is a long way ahead of a full strength Cork. Think also there are 2/3 other teams who are stronger in midfield and defensively than Cork which is where things really fell apart on Sunday. No team can lose the players Cork have lost and immediately step up a couple of levels. Kerry & Tyrone finding this reality also.

Donnelly
McNamee
Cavanagh Colm
Mc Mahon Joe
Penrose
Ronan ONeill
Mark Donelly
McCurry
Sean Cavanagh
Ronan McNabb

Play McNabb along the half back line to help and shore up that space.
