Good one by Spewan Scum on Friday:

Had a great 140 characters on Twitter explaining how the Irish soccer team are so bad. Then Duffy buried a header. Then Spewan deleted his tweet! Class act.

Not to mention accusing Katie Taylorís team of paying off judges, Anthony Joshua of being on drugs and horrendous digs at Mickey Harte after Tyroneís loss. And thatís just in the last week or so.

Thereís plenty of decent people who write about Dublinís advantages. Better to quote them than this scuttery scum.

He is a very spiteful and bitter person. Very hard to pay much attention to a lot of stuff he writes.

Keep being cynical on everything and eventually you will be right.

As said outbursts on Taylor and Harte were ridiculous.

His eluding to Conor Murray missing half of the last season for reasons other than injury was another low point.

Low life journalist.

Nope I didn't read it. I gave up after the name calling started.

Of course not. That would show you that you were wrong

Would all Dublin fans be again a Dublin North and Dublin South team? I'd say 1 or both teams would go close to winning an AI (and give other teams a bit more of a chance).
If you want something, you have to work for it. Now quiet they're about to announce the lottery no's

Well, we have a West Meath, so why not a West Dublin?

Well county identity is obviously a huge part of GAA, so most people are instantly against splitting their own county, or combining their county with someone else.

Splitting Dublin is worthy of consideration. But would it solve a whole lot other than helping Kerry win more All Irelands?

Equally worthy of consideration would be to play the league as is, but combine teams for the All Ireland. Two six team divisions, top 2 in each division makes the semis.

Dublin
Kerry
Cork
Rest of Munster
Mayo/Sligo/Leitrim
Galway/Ros
South Leinster
North Leinster
Tyrone/Derry
Donegal/Fermanagh
Cavan/Monaghan
Armagh/Down/Antrim

Every player and every fan could have aspirations of winning Sam, although cyclically, some would not contend.
The above split is just top of the head (Cork on their own, but they should be challenging even if theyíre nowhere near at the moment) but Iím sure thereíd be a better way of doing it, but as an idea it would be better to try it with hurling first where the disparity is even greater.

Forget the matches...fellas would pay to watch training three times a week in that combination.
