Feckin delusional. The GAA in Leinster is dead with this level of spin been thrown about.

"The Leinster Championship is quite vibrant outside the Dublin scenario. During the summer, you have some very good matches - the same in the other provinces," said Reynolds.

These lads are now completely deluded. Reminds me of the time FF and Dermot Ahern were denying the bailout.

They are not deluded, they have just gone head first down a road that there is no turning back from.  But sure isn't it great to have a really strong Dublin. The GAA need a strong Dublin.

More if the "Longford need to pull up their socks" type of sh1te.
Longford are one of the very few Leinster counties who have punched their weight or above it in the last 15 years or so

They lost by 4 points to a team which made the All-Ireland final last year and have consistently caused shocks against bigger teams in the qualifiers

Longford are never going to win an All-Ireland or come close to it - they have always been a minnow and will always be a minnow

That's the reality of being a county with 40k, the second lowest population of the 32 counties

But they do alright with what they have

Kildare have 220k and Meath have 195k

Both counties have vast suburban estates, are well located economically and have young populations

What's their excuse for being shit?

Not being financially doped. Not playing the majority of their games at home - even their neutral ones. Having to maintain their own training centres.

Need I go on?

It's gas. Centres of excellence such as what Tyrone and Kerry have are held up as reasons these counties are successful.

And yet simultaneously they are also held up as reasons for failure.

When did the nonsense about Croke Park being such an advantage to Dublin start? When they started winning, by any chance?

Funny that in the last decade when Dublin didn't win, it was commonly asserted by people from other counties that playing in Croke Park was actually a millstone around Dublin's neck because other teams raised their game when they went there.

Funny, I don't remember Donegal whinging when they had to play three Ulster finals in Clones against Monaghan, who play nearly all their home league and championship home games there.

Dublin played all their home games including league games in Croke Park up to and including the end of 1995.

Funny, I don't remember anybody complaining about that then.

But maybe back then the rest of the GAA hadn't yet decided to become perpetual self-pitying victims and whingers.

This "debate" is proof that non-Dublin people are more than prepared to use two directly contradictory sides of an argument when it suits them.

A load of nonsense, in other words.

It's gas indeed. Gas how you are taking all these advantages separately.

Now what happens when you put them all together?

Were Dublin getting the millions in '95? Are Donegal or Tyrone or Kerry getting the millions that Dublin get? Monaghan play nearly all their games in Clones (Monaghans real home ground by the way) - I seriously doubt if that's true. And well you know that too.

Seeing 'the rest of the GAA' as whingers is a bit rich now. I'm surprised you can see anything to be honest considering you spend most of your time with your head in the sand.

Keep beating that drum though.

You still have nothing but a whinge

You should ring up Liveline if you're that agitated

Monaghan do play the vast majority of their home games in Clones - they play an odd league game in Castleblaney or Iniskeen - I'm surprised you didn't know that seeing as seem so confident in your opinions

Be nice to have something to back them up with however

You are not too bad offering your own opinion are? Over 2000 posts to my measly 450+. And you call me opininated? You probably will deny that too.

God help you if the basis of your argument is where Monaghan play their games. Yet you refuse to address the big elephant in the room.

You are yet another ostrich.
