The only way to catch the Dubs is to have the same money pumped into other counties... which pays for same facilities, coaches, backroom team, stats men, leading to million pound sponsorships... and train like crazy 7 days a week. But that entails players being looked after in terms of funding, rest, career, Etc.

I can’t see the GAA being able to fund 31 other counties to the same level as they do Dublin. Even if they funded 5 others, that’s still 26 counties at an unfair disadvantage. So, in effect, the GAA is ruined. They had to get their “strong Dublin”, and the whole ethos of the organisation and the sport is obliterated.
Either split Dublin in 4 or else fund 4 Provincial teams on the same basis as Dunlin.
Give them all jobs in the biggest town/city in the Province, free cars, meals etc.. Train like fck etc.
Ahh... but that would be professionalism say the purists...
Who will be the 2nd Leinster County to not enter the SFC?
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Read something in the examiner the other day that facilities such as Garvaghey in Tyrone and the Kerry centre of excellence are miles ahead of anything Dublin have

So all Tyrone and Kerry need now is a tenfold increase in population and a load of €/£ from GAA HQ?

GAA HQ gave Dublin their training centre gratis.  Tyrone and Kerry had to fund their own.

Have you ever been to Garvaghy?
It's a fine set up but it's also a great spot to put a wind farm.
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

Micko and his team won 8 All-Irelands. I curse the one he won against us but I will never disrespect. They were the best.

Haven’t heard it mentioned, does Dublin 14 dig a Kerry player just after the goal?

Kerry are not that far away, depending on who retires with Dublin. A few things I couldn't understand, no push up on the Dublin kick out the entire game. You can't stand 5m away from a player on a kick out and expect to to get it. When a Kerry man gets the ball the Dublin player will tackle to try disposse, Kerry the opposite.,try to shadow there player out with out putting in a tackle. The Kerry team at the back is way to light, each man outside Morley need put on 2 stone. Forwards good enough but left 4 point behind them 2nd half running into trouble when a point was enough. Dublin are a great team, and best I seen but nothing goes on forever and I expect new winners next year.

Well done Dublin.  But Kerry ballsed it up today as well.  Long ball tactics in the first ten minutes, but Tommy Walsh on the bench.  Conceded the kickouts to Dublin.  Missed a lot of chances.  They’ll be kicking themselves.  But they could win a good few All Ireland’s in the next ten years themselves.  A few lads let themselves down badly in the Hill at the end - a good few punches thrown, pretty nasty stuff.  And Jayo would sicken your hole running onto the pitch every thirty seconds.
