We were told Leinster was shit, it's Kildare/Meath's fault for not being competitive etc etc but nobody cared because they still had their crap provincial titles to share among themselves. I have spoken about this for 6 years, all I have gotten in return was abuse and whataboutery from  the grunters. Sport has a simple formula, spend the most money reap the most rewards.

Do you care now?

5 Senior All-Irelands in 7 years. 4 u21 All-Ireland in 8 years. 4 National League Titles in 5 years.

Inter-county football as a competition is in terminal decline probably already dead.

+1

More excitement in the provincial championships and the league than the AI race these days.

Mayo are competitive regularly against Dublin. A start for Leinster teams Kildare,Meath etc is to be competitive once in a while against this Dublin side who are not at their peak in May,June and July.

Delusional, Leinster is dead mate. The Super 8 will follow suit.

3 of Dublins recent all irelands have been won by a point! One after a replay... The sport is not dead. It wasn't dead when Kerry won 7 out of 9 and it isn't dead now. Christ people are over dramatic.

Won by a point because Dublin have a former world boxing champ as their mental/performance coach, money well spent.


Kerry's was built on organic success not the millions spent on games development, it died a natural death. Who's going to challenge Dublin? Tyrone ha!

It's why Dublin win tight games, it's not coincidence it's what he's employed for, Rock would have visualized that last free and I guarantee he had a process to deal with it. You aren't dealing with amateurs here.

Did he visualize the 2 frees he kicked really badly in the first half?

That's the official take, sure. Just like Micko and company were traveling to Wicklow for the love of the game..

Dinny, people miss frees and score frees at every level in the GAA and always have done.
It has fcuk all to do with an ex-boxer.

Fine you don't believe in Sports Pyscology. I do and Bernard Dunne heads up the HPU for Irish Boxing, he's not with Dublin to sit on his hole, Rock has a 92% success rate on frees 96% within his range. He's a machine. Sure yea he's just another club footballer.

I'm in agreement here now lads. We all sat bird-mouthed when Dublin started romping to Leinsters and we said nothing. Now they're starting to romp to all-irelands and were still saying nothing. Today was the only time all year they didn't win by playing in 2nd gear.

A lot of you profess to be rational people but if you can't see the huge advantages that Dublin now have over the rest of us then you have your heads in the sand.

The really, really sad thing is that change will only be enacted when supporters lose interest in a predictable championship and the GAA start getting hit in the coffers. It's a sad indictment of the current GAA mentality that a strong balance sheet is the sole measure of the health of the association.
