As good a team as Mayo has to get to 10 semi and not win 1 final once. Is very poor no matter the opposition.
Kildare FM are plugging Kildare's first Leinster Final for 4 years but football is going through a very strange phase.
The Dubs won and stayed at the top.
Nobody else got a look in.

Kerry lost 4 in a row, previously 2 was the maximum.
Everybody got hammered.

Mayo deserve credit for standing up to them.

Apart from Donegal in 2014 remind me of all the other teams that have beaten Dublin when this poor Mayo team couldn't???

Dublin lost 3 games in the AI series(es) 2010 to 2020 incl.
Won around 30 and a draw or 2.
Hard to lose  when you play at home all the time

Sometimes a very good team is unlucky to come up against a very dominant team and unable to win Sam.

This happened to Roscommon and Monaghan in the late 70s/80s and is happening to Mayo now.

Sometimes success is about timing.

absolutely no comparison , ros contested one all ireland , as for monaghan , seriously ?   
Walk-in down mchale rd , sun out, summers day , game day . Thatís all .
