Parkinson had plenty to say on it. Doesnít seem to have much love for Cluxton.

It was no bother to Scruff taking the dollar to play for  Parnells, Scruff has a chip with everyone. Cluxton didn't like that all the mercs were joining the senior team, he probably did not like scruff and all the other blow ins.

Oh the irony of Cluxton not liking the mercs in his club.

No bother with it when playing for Dublin.

Parnells very similar to Kildare alright the way they wasted their money. Both wasted huge money looking for shortcuts and failed badly. At least both are on the right track now

First time in 19 cup presentations to a Dublin captain it hasn't been Stephen Cluxton.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Fair sure Johnny Cooper was captain against Laois in the Leinster Final  a couple years ago and Comerford was in goal.

Glen Whelan never retired from playing for Ireland.

Cluxton is doing the same!

Or Ciaran McDonald never retired from Mayo 😀

McDonald and Whelan were deemed surplus to requirements. The situation with Cluxton is different where the player has opted out himself. Most people can deduce at this stage that there has been a falling out between player and manager. I know Dublin are well schooled in saying absolutely nothing in media interviews but the media have given them a free ride on the Cluxton situation.

Why are you interested if Cluxton and his manager have fallen out.
Let it go

Of course the Dubs themselves want to let it go or continue to pretend that itís not an issue. But Iíve had several debates at the local GAA club over the Cluxton situation and people are genuinely interested in it - I think thatís only natural for the unexplained absence of the captain of the current AI champions.

It was never going to be an issue as Dublin breezed through Leinster but if Dublin donít win the AI title this year then even Dublin fans themselves will want to know why their captain opted out pre championship.

Sorry but nope. The mainstay of the best team of all time retiring on the sly is going to be discussed
