Howard named at 6 the only surprise so far. 6 forwards to be named after the ad break.

Not a surprise but while he didn't really play 6 he was nominated in that line so.........
Boyle really should have got 6.

Would have had Keoghan at 5 Boyle 6.

Durcan got his all star based on Donegal and Dublin games where he played wing forward. Wouldn't begrudge Brian Howard an All Star, while he didn't score much this year he played his football his best an extra defender/midfielder when Dublin weren't in possession of the ball.

Durcan to be fair earned his All star by holding 5 of the 6 players he marked scoreless and three of them were Jack McCaffrey,Ryan McHugh and Shane Walsh while scoring 0-8 himself.

He played wing forward  in the big games in which he scored 5 points

He ended up at wing forward at times as his role was to curb the influence of key players and few of the players he marked out of the game happen to play wing back. Weighing in with scores while man marking made his performances all the more impressive.

A forward keeping a defender scoreless shouldn't warrant a All  Star.

A defender the curbs the influence of key players does warrant one. For example McCaffrey showed in the following game v Kerry the type of damage he can cause if not shackled.

Durcan played as a forward both games.  Not  disputing his all star.  He is a class act.

A defender curbing the influence of two of the oppositions key players should.

Ryan McHugh had destroyed Kerry the game before at Croke Park, McCaffrey scored 1-03 in the match after against Kerry and was MOTM. The job Durcan did on both of these guys was phenomenal.

Michael Fitzsimons seems to be a bit of a p***k

He's probably taken offence at MF having a pop at Joanne Cantwell's statement a while back about the Dublin players being institutionalised

He didn't come across too well when interviewed on the stage by Joannne Cantwell.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose
