Tommy Conroy is a game changer, this will be no hammering. Even just now having a full front three to worry about and being able to keep someone like Darren Coen on the bench
You can forget about Sean Cavanagh as far as he's a man!

Remember we played Tipperary today! Galway and Roscommon within our own province are better teams. Read nothing into todays game.

Mayo/Tipp should refuse to play.
That's the spirit

Presumably that's what Waterford should have done in 2008 too!

Did Dublin play Waterford in 2008?
Again, going all sarky - the Sinn Fein media strategy

Kilkenny beat Waterford by 23 points in the 2008 All-Ireland final

By the reckoning of some on this board, Waterford should have refused to play rather than face a Kilkenny team which was going to massacre them

This is genuinely the attitude

Modern life has made some people very, very soft and self-indulgent

It's the Celtic Tiger attitude

This board is a showcase for that attitude

The system is broken.
KK had won 2 in the run up.to 2008. Not 5.

You can't put unlimited amounts of X into any closed system and expect equilibrium to continue. This goes for climate as much as for gaelic football.

Dublin house prices will collapse and the Dublin machine will collapse but which will happen first ?

So if we look at the money and population and player participation which Dublin has over all counties in all codes why havenít they won hurling?

The hurling tradition in Dublin is not in any way comparable to that of football, hurling doesn't draw anywhere near the numbers that football does. Did you really not think of this before posting?

Look at Belfast and half it, then half it again because of football, then more than half it as soccer is bigger then you might get a picture you numbers Participation!

Then youíve the logistics of where we are... but hey Iíll be dammed if Iím going to gurn about splitting counties in half
