You mustn't have spent too much time in the company of supporters of the Armagh one hit wonders if you think the Kilkenny lads are arrogant.
If they are they have something to be arrogant about
Warning. Don't try this at home unless in the company of a responsible adult

I spend all my time with Armagh supporters, we have absolutely nothing to be arrogant about, Kilkenny don't even bother to play football, all their recourses go t playing hurling, there are about six decent teams in hurling, the rest are fluff, nobody has the right to be arrogant and again their fans, the ones that I met were arrogant b**tards, just my experience, I despise the county for that as well as their love for the Royals and the brits in general, a loathesome county if ever there was one! :)
Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

Kilkenny folks usually play everything down and always come across as easy going.
However put a shtick in their paws......

For anyone interested in podcasts lads, we had Michael Fennelly on for an hour this week.

The 2011 Hurler of the Year was incredibly honest about the impact his love of hurling has had on his body and mind and the many challenges he has had to overcome.

Now in the latter end of his career at 32, he has changed jobs, studied leadership, started lecturing and began a journey into the entrepreneurial world. There is zero doubt that Michael Fennelly is much more than just a hurler.

You know the old saying about Tipp fans. Could never get over the one in a row.

Tipps arrogance is, I think, a bit misunderstood. They have great confidence in themselves gan dabht, but they fully recognise the threat the likes of Galway, Kilkenny, Cork etc pose. There weren't too many Tipp fans overly cocky going into the Galway game the last 3 years for example. They are also inordinately hard on their own team when they lose, similar to the Kerry fans in football.

I think the arrogance comes from their attitude to the weaker counties. They have no concept that a team like Offaly, Dublin, Antrim, Laois etc could ever beat them and shouldn't be on the the same field as them.

they still cannot accept how well Westmeath did against them this year

Speaking of which, how the hell did Tommy Doyle not get an all-Star nomination? Has Callinan ever been roasted to the level he was that night?

Westmeath played 5 games in the championship. Its obvious the people who chose players never saw one Westmeath game

i'm trying to figure out how Shane O'Donnell got a nomination
