Donegal went after the home game issue and not the neutral game which depending on the opposite shouldn't always have to be played in croke park for Dublin

Another Dublin thread  :D

For me I agree, take them out of Croke park, as a supporter I have no problem travelling anywhere for a game and if I cant make I cant make so be it.

However, they went 36 games unbeaten in league and championship not so long ago. Not sure how many away games that was but it didn't really matter.

Looking at the highlights last night only for 2 x illegal throw ball assists for the 2 goals Roscommon would've won or drawn with ye.

refe seem to be clamping down on dissent last few games and lineballS  taken inside the line, was there a circular sent out.
none of them still seem to be able to count to 4 though?

Dublin were the better team on the day. I do agree with the 2 throw balls. Factor in some handy frees given and not given. Also the last point for Roscommon should have been a penalty,push on the back of Lyons. Still thought Dublin were in control in the second half, they monopolised possession.

Fair enough, the highlights never tell the full story.

Sean O'Shea's line ball for Kerry's last point (by the time he let the kick go) was inside the line. It's a dumb rule. During the Summer (in the Rochford era anyhow) the pitch in Castlebar gets widened so their is only about a yard between the stand and the actual sideline, hard for a player to kick a long punted sideline if that rule keeps getting implemented. Probably won't matter anyhow to us as the way we are playing we wouldn't be able to kick a point if we were playing in a 5 sided cube.

I know, and agree to take them out of Croker Park for more championship matches. If you exclude the first round Leinster games, Id say it longer than 10 years. Only seems to matter recently though.!

Dublin get to play all their league matches in Croker only recently.
Dublin have been getting all their championship games in Croke Park only recently.
The Super 8 that Dublin get extra home matches was only invented only recently.
Dublin have been getting financially Doped only recently.

There is a bit of a pattern here as to why things have gone Dublin's way only recently!

And around 2 thirds of the GAA decision makers voted against one small measure of fairer play.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Why are every club in the 31 Counties continuously fundraising?
Because they get sweet FA from HQ.

True in some cases, but not in all.

A lot of GAA club grants come from the sports grant, my own benefited from this recently thankfully, its also heavily politically motivated too.
