Toys out of the pram, eh?

Well done Dublin, Dublin GAA does not exist to subsidise other counties who massively mismanaged their finance and funding for years.

Dublinís biggest source of income is development grants (around 2.5 million). They take in more than a million from that source than commercial income every year.

I wouldnít say the GAA subsidies Dublin but they certainly support them to the same extent that they support whole provinces.

If you think Connacht is even getting a per capita amount of the grant money Dublin gets I want some of the ganja youíre smoking.

It's amazing the zealotry on display in even sunshine supporters' circles in Dublin. How can they not realise they are rapidly destroying the very competitions they covet so dearly?

I looked it up and zealotry is an actual word. Well done you.

12 hour later and not a defensive word from a Dub. Not a word! ''The Greatest'', ''Hound'', ''Zulu'' et al all hiding, looking through their fingers!

I have been beating this drum for at least 5 years, nobodies listening because nobody wants to believe. And it's not helped by gobshites in the media such as the O'Shea brothers who think teams just have to work harder to bridge the gap. They talk about cycles :-

12 of the last 13 Leinster Titles, and the one game they lost was a freak 5 goals to Meath best record before that was 13 in 18 years a 100 years ago even the fabled era of the 70s they only managed 6.

This was the most pertinent quote of the week for me, this is ladies football she was speaking about

"Dublin were just way better than us... They were a lot more professional." Kerry's Aislinn Desmond is speaking to #OTBAM

Yes the cycle has began with Ladies game with Dublin playing double headers, which means more access to Croke Park. And greater familiarity of the pitch on AI day!

Hard to argue with any of Ewan's points here. Even if he is anti Dub.

The funny thing is ewan might be understating the amount Dublin get. On Dublinís own accounts itís 2.77 million they get in 2016 in development funds. Ewan cites 1.4 million from the GAAs accounts but it seems to be double that.

**** Fake News Alert ****

Ah Spewn's (Frank Grimes) hack job that he gets paid to write, taken directly from an article he wrote for the business post on multiple occasions at this stage, he obsessed and he's plain wrong and spouting lies.

Dublin hurlers have benefited from the same coaching structure as the footballers, no All Irelands. Its not allocated per registered player, that's a stupid ignorant argument. Not all School children are registered members of clubs.

Anyway, been here before , Wolves do not concern themselves with the crying of sheep.

And while they cry, the hard work will continue.

Its funny, you never hear this being talked about from Kerry or Tyrone, just the usual suspect counties who already have weak mentalities.

Still following me around id see, obsessed, I wouldn't be surprised if you were Ewan.

What happens in 10 years?  Think Kildare, Meath and Dublin will be top 5 or 6 in 10 Years.

Christ do people only gauge success in All-Irelands

As for hurling. seriously

5 Leinster Minors and 3 runners-up in the last 12 years. Prior to that it was 1 in 40 years.

4 Leinster u21s since 2007 and 2 runners up. Prior to that you have to go back to 1972.

1 Senior Leinster Title in 2013, 1st in 50 odd years.  They even won the National League for the 1st time 70 years in 2011.

The hurling success is not measured in All-Irelands but from where they were before Bertie's cash intervention supplemented by GAA money to now, is miles apart.

I will refrain from calling you ignorant but are being deliberately obtuse as is every Dublin poster, the head in the sand stuff is mildly amusing.
