The modern football era can be divided into two periods, pre and post Jimmy McGuinness.
What we thought was puke football was actually nothing of the kind.
I'd love to get back to the noughties-era football.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Good article by Alan Brogan on how the game has changed in a decade. The youtube video of the game he refers to is worth looking at and the contrast in playing style and most notably how muted crowds have become at matches. There is very little ebb and flow to gaelic football anymore, just plenty of crowd conversation as the ball is filtered sideways in possession for long spells. The atmosphere then at the big matches was more akin to hurling now which has maintained is excitement levels.   

You got an advantage to attack if you caught the kickout and later Whelan was surrounded when he landed.

I'm going to link an article that's just full on moaning, it definitely belongs in this thread for moaners and it in no way reflects genuine concerns about Gaelic football. It's just a moanfest that shouldn't be discussed properly on this GAA forum.

The naughties were a golden age of football, gone was the age of the hallion that allowed for football subimlity to arise and go forth

Ah the hallion. The monster who opponents both respected and feared. Also surprisingly skilful. Every team needed one or two. Big Seamus Quigley is as close as a modern day footballer could be.
                Brian Gilligan would eat him for breakfast!
Can we have a Dream Hallion team.

Good one but probably not quite enough of a hallion. I think I once  seen him receive attention from the physio during one game!

I've a spine of my team here:

To be clear they had to be able to play as well as kicking 2shades of shite out of the opposition so rules the Grimley bros out! The Aussie's would think twice before messing with these boys.

                    1. Big Finbar mc Connell (Tyrone)

2. Paul higgins(Down).   3. Mick Lyons (meath). 4. Tony Scullion(Derry)
5. CiaranMcKeeverArmagh) 6. Liam Harnan(Meath). 7. Niall Cahalane(Cork)

          8. Brian Gilligan(Derry) captain
          9. Brian Mullins(Dublin)

10.          11. Dermot McNicholl(Derry)   12.

13.               14. The bomber liston(kerry)   15. Vinnie Corey (Monaghan)

He definitely would. I'm trying to think of a few forward hallions but with the exception of the Bomber and Dermot mc Nicholl i cant think of any that those backs wouldnt tear limb from limb.
