Divide the 1.3m population colossus into 4 County teams.

Dublin males 18-33 that play senior Gaelic football you mean.

Another Dublin thread.

One thing that will never happen is a Dublin split.

When you are going for 5 in a row and the success seems to be continuing then its easy enough to stay and win trophies

Guaranteed part of history, life-time guarantee of fame and and the great opportunities that will come from that....easy to sell that over the limited chance of actually making it in Aussie rules.
With all due respect bc, they are guaranteed sweet FA!
Only the creme de la creme will ever get near the intercounty panel, never mind establishing a place on the senior side. With only one county board to cater for a population equal to that of a total of 15 other counties, the wastage of young players is shocking.
Any weekend there are probably 10,000 juveniles or more involved in club activities throughout the county but with only one senior side at the top of the pile, only an incredibly tiny percentage will continue playing football as far as senior club level, never mind making it to the county side.
All along the line, from, say, under eights to senior intercounty level, the drop off rate is shocking. Naturally, some will drift away to follow other interests or to go chasing women or whatever but the numbers forced out due to a lack of opportunity to play at a higher level as they get older, means that only a tiny percentage of those who come in at the bottom of this typical  pyramid structure with make it to the top.
Iím not coat-trailing her, by the way. It doesnít take a rocket scientist  to deduce that thousands of aspiring young Dubs will never get a chance to achieve their full potential. The Dublin club model is caters exclusively for the talented but that comes with a very hefty price tag.

One thing that will never happen is a Dublin split.

Just like we never thought we'd see the second chance back door in Gaelic Football or Hurling.

Just like we though we'd never see group stages in the Football Championship.

Just like we thought we'd never see Soccer or Rugby in Croke Park.

Just like we thought we'd never hear God Save the Queen in Croke Park.

Just like we never thought in 2004 that there would be only one other winner of a Leinster title in the next 14 years.

Dublin will be spit. It's inevitable! Money rules the GAA and this is the only way to keep the coffers filled!

The great Mayo support contribute a lot to the coffers too!

Maybe your right actually, but cant see it happening within the next 20 years, would have to be phased in.

The incorporation of financial doping within the rules means Gavin can milk the cow 'til wherever time it dies.  Expect him and David Brailsford to release a joint book anytime soon.

It'll be closely followed by your memoir from the barstool called " I could have been a Contender"

Cian McBride going for trials. Nash already gone and looking permanent now. So much for closing the gap in Leinster.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Sligo boosted by the return of one of their most talented young footballers.  A very open and honest interview.

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose
