@ Baile Brigín 2 , you are wasting your breath on these Mayo lads, sure they don't even enjoy GAA anymore according to them, although they will all be looking for tickets if they get to the final.

Back to the thread, the Great Kerry team, in some of their wins, played one decent match in Munster, 2 in Croke park, 210 minutes of football to win one, now that's soft.

At least all the teams that come up to play the Dubs in Croker up their game.

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.
What is your club?

Ah now couldn't been telling you all that, but we are the Dublin of Dublin  ;)

Vinnies so

And a huge misproportion of the National wealth is concentrated in Dublin.

And the real agenda emerges. Its Dublins fault where you are from is economivally unviable.

Absolutely! But the GAA preaches that it is ''of all the people''. The GAA has created a Monopoly. If you have a better economy, why not ask the fans with the better disposable income to fill the stadia around the country and in turn throw a few quid to Hotels, Pertol stations, take aways and see a bit of the country over the summer? Why do we all have to go to a clustered and over priced city year in year out and ye just get to stay there and have your championship on tap?

Because the GAA put us there to raise money. Because its the only venue that can hold our potential crowds.

It is interesting that you want to milk the cash cow that is the Dubs, but down the sticks instead. Fine, I think a a couple of games on the road would be welcomed by most Dubs fans, but link this with the other row. We can raise money but cant get any of it back for our own use.

Hauld on, Hauld on! Ye are getting all of ye're money back! Looking at the financial doping figures.  So it's ok for the Country people to travel up to Dublin year in year out spending their money there, while ye sit on ye're holes watch the Premier League before you head to Croker. The spend of Mayo fans in Dublin way outweighs the spend of Dublin fans in Mayo.

The end of Gaelic football is at hand!  ;D
Because we dont get drawn in Mayo... This is getting very silly. The Dubs have carried the GAA for 40 years, some gratitude would be nice.

Why? I'm sure 40k to 50k Mayo fans would turn out to see such a game? Why shouldn't Mayo people have Big Championship games on their doorstep? Why shouldn't the local pubs taste some of it's business? Why why why?


on another note - Ye get to much gratitude in Financial Doping!

The end is near! How many Dubs turned up for the semi final v Galway last year?

Because Dublin fans no longer soely exist to fund unsustainable rural GAA projects. This is the real issue - a chunk of the money we raise now stays in Dublin. And we used it wiser than you did.

Less than 20k in CP last night! What's happened to the 30k core support? Dublin can't make league final, don't be surprised to see semi finals reintroduced next year.

Yes Croke Park must have thought Dublin would stroll into the top two. Is it to late to re-write the rules?

You certainly did. On EPO for a surprising number of players under 'medcial use exemption' for starters!  ;D
