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!

Financial DOPING Lads!

**** 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.

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.

Mildly, I find it hilarious, you are all so serious.

Another few years and the averge Inter County playing career will be 3 years for 27 or 28 Counties.
Longford manager talking after yesterday's big win said the NFL us where it's at as far as teams like Longford are concerned.

Absolutely, the league is fantastic and much better than a lot of provincial matches , a great weekend of sport just gone by, this is what championship should be all about.

So you're being as obnoxious about Longford's 'place' as you are Kildare's. Could you tell us all where every other county's 'place' is please oh 'Greatest' one?

Deflect deflect deflect........

There are none so blind as those who can't see.

Personally I can't wait for 10 years time.

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.

 :D :D :D

Far too obvious a WUM.

Building a new Gym in Parnell park is the word.

Its become tiresome acting like a charity to some of the other counties who mismanage their finances.

I would be no fan of Ewan MacKenna but the abuse he is getting on-line from the Dublin Zealots is ridiculous.

Anyhow between MacKenna, Colm O'Rourke, Off The Ball and now the more subtle Malachy Clerkin (2 of his most recent articles in the Irish Times have been about the amount of inter-county players not based in their home counties (Dublin Footballers and Galway Hurlers had none) and the home advantage that Croke Park gives Dublin) there is a bit more focus on the financial doping of Dublin. Still can't believe one of the zealots argued that playing at home is a disadvantage to Dublin because teams are more up for it  ::)

If Dublin are so good at managing their finances why do they have a shit-hole for a "Home Ground", no Center of Excellence and require millions from the Government and the GAA to fund their games development?

What are ye talking about, Parnell park is a great little ground. Don't need a centre of excellence. Games development is for the benefit of the children of the city, all genders, all codes, and its fantastic.

No point in debating with a zealot/wum/troll. Good luck with it.
