Early days, but it will be great to see this version of Kerry, their youth, their pace, movement, work rate etc go up against the Dubs.

We will see it in a few weeks.

Nuetral venue?  ;D

Well, it should be. But it wonít of course.
All Ireland finals should be held outside Croke Park?
Great suggestion. The Aviva maybe?

Who mentioned the All-Ireland Final?
Well, when do you think Dublin will play Kerry?

I was under the impression that the Leinster winners play the Munster winners in the group stage. Apologies if Iím wrong on that. And yes, I know Dublin havenít beaten Laois yet.

Leinster and ulster winners together in Super 8.

No mention of neutral venues in Super 8 rules.

Provincial champions play each other in Croke Park. Qualifiers play each other in Croke Park.

Other games played on home and away basis.

If Cork had beaten Kerry today, like looked possible for 7 minutes, then Dublin would likely have had to travel to Killarney in Super 8.

If Mayo win next qualifier then draw and beat Cork in R4, Dublin will travel to Castlebar. Assuming Dubs beat Laois.

Kerry building a team that will maybe put it up to dublin. Might be a bit soon yet though but definitely look to be heading towards serious contenders.

Kerry definitely the real deal. Super 8's could be brilliant.

True but with Monaghan, Mayo, Tyrone, Roscommon still alive and the possibility of four very good provincial champions there's cause for optimism. If Monaghan, Mayo, Tyrone and Roscommon come through the qualifiers then only Dublin would be sure of a semi final spot IMO. Mind you I think Kerry would make it too but wouldn't be guaranteed.
