Was looking at this article. No one from Dublin with all it's wealth of young talent feels there is a need to try their hand at the Aussie game?

Read it again.James Madden from Ballyboden signed for Brisbane.

One! Feck sake Leitrim even heric ave one lad doing trials!

Over the years Kevin Devine, Sean McGuinness, Declan O'Mahony, Karl Dias, Brian and David Stynes have played Aussie Rules.Ciaran Kilkenny played for a couple months but was homesick. Jack McCaffrey was over for a trial but wasn't interested in pursing a career in Oz. Eric Lowndes, Kevin Nolan, Cian O'Sullivan, James McCarthy, Cormac Costello, Gavin Burke, Shane Carthy and Niall Scully would had trials at various stages.

From your list and the list in the Article, it looks like Aussie Rule option has faded as a decent option for the young Dublin footballer in comparison to being a professional sportsman in their home town?

None of the Mayo lads have any perks/cars etc?

 Did you go to the Mayo gaa team dinner in the Shelbourne hotel in DUBLIN last week? It's not like you had to spend much money following the team this summer
Did you get outside the M50 all summer?

It's a scary world out there

It's expensive following the dubs. They always reach the finals in league All Ireland and then the added expense of celebrating All Irelands

On the contrary I find most people are friendly and polite. Maybe you need to look at yourself and your behaviour if you think the world is such a frightening place

Always? No they don't.

You have more or less admitted in writing that you've jumped on the bandwagon.

Right, I will bite. Which Dublin players are professional? You know, make their living by playing for Dublin

Well in the last 4 years it's been league final and All Ireland final. I didn't realise when you talk about current spending you expected Dublin fans to go back 5 years.

And being a dual fan, its quite expensive, plenty of days out and Dublin is one of the most expensive Cities in the world. I always spend a few bob on matches home or away.
