One way to stop the 7 in a row I suppose.

Think you should be banned from posting. Players up and down the country are out running or kicking about and more power to them!!  What real harm are they doing out in a big open space in the fresh air?
The real pandemic is the mental health crisis that arises from extreme restrictions for a virus with 99% survival rate imo!

The national response to Dublinís daunting run of unbeaten years is conflicted: admiration for their skill and athleticism and resentment at the perception that they have all the advantages. In the many debates on the subject, figures are trotted out to illustrate that Dublin has been given more funding than any other county. There is a real fear that no other county can live with Dublin as an entity; that the century old All-Ireland championship model is broken.

They could do with a break from it and we could do with a break from them winning all round them.

Duggan says "But this foolish moment will follow them and threatens to compromise what has been a legacy of untouchable supremacy."

Will it though?

Will anyone give a shit next month, never mind after they've won their seventh AI in a row and beyond that?

Chances are that there are more than just the Dubs out doing this anyway.

Out of all the questions about the Dubs and the long term health of the senior intercounty championship, this won't feature very highly.

It's about ignoring Covid guidelines at a time when people are still dying.
Phil Hogan lost his job because of something similarly stupid. Everything depends on the public reaction.
