Fearon likes to remind us all of Armagh's win in 2002.

That must hurt, Farrandeelin. Did that lead to your bizarre prediction that Down would win by 5 on Sunday?

Mayo are actually not the worst.

Take ASM Clermont Auvergne who have fantastic support btw

"They have reached the French Championship final ten times (a French record), losing all of them, including seven times by less than 7 points."

and the exceptionally well supported Collingwood in the AFL,

"The 1990 premiership team, coached by Leigh Matthews and captained by Tony Shaw, had a one-sided grand final win against Essendon, the Magpies recording a 48 point victory and ending a 32 year premiership drought which included eight grand final losses and one draw."

The above may look unsuccessful to the casual observer, but there are alot of counties that would kill to be at the Business end of the Championship year after year. There is no fun in losing finals, but hey there is even less fun in not even reaching them.

After the first 16 losses it got a lot easier to accept defeat, beating cork in 2011, the dubs in 2006, and Tyrone in2004 made up for the losses though. Written off all those days, especially last year by joe brilly.

When I speak to my Mayo cousins I remind them that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all....

If you want to look at an unsuccessful period in Mayo football, then look no furter than from 1955 to 1981. In that period Mayo won just 2 Connacht titles (1967 and 1969). They won none in the 70's. Imagine a whole decade without a Provincial title. As for getting to finals, Mayo did not contest an AI final from 1951 to 1989......38 years.

It's going to take me a while to get over our U-21 final defeat maybe the senior championship might take my mind off it but i can't imagine what it would feel like to lose so many finals.

As mannix said Mayo were able to beat the best on their day for whatever reason they came up short in finals.

For the record between 1989-2012 Tyrone,Kerry,Cork have cleaned up.

Kerry Senior: Six - 97, '00, '04, '06, '07 , '09  Under 21: five - '90, '95, '96, '98, 2008 Minor one - 94 NFL titles: four - 97, 2004, 2006, 2009  Total won 16

Cork Senior: Three - 89, '90, 2010  Under 21 four - 89, '94, 2007, 2009  Minor  three- '91, '93, '00 NFL titles: five - '89, '99, 2010, 2011 Total won 15

Tyrone Senior: three - 2003, '05, '08 Under 21: Four - 1991, 92, 2000, '01 Minor Five 98, '01, '04, '08, 2010 NFL titles: Two - 2002, 2003   Total won 14





The key to success is to be consistently competitive -- if you bang on the door often it will open
