A lot here getting carried away. Dublin don't care about hammering teams anymore. It's hard for Dublin to get themselves up for a Championship that they have dominated for the guts of 17 year now. They won't fear Mayo. Most of this group have never lost to Mayo in League or Championship.

Yup - they very much look a team who know they don't get anything extra beating the opposition by 8 points or 18 points.

Double-digit hammerings only hasten the day that Dublin will be split.
More "competitive" winning margins delay that day a bit further.
Splitting Dublin is inevitable. Accepting the funding and the plan 15 years ago was a poisoned chalice , all Irelands notwithstanding. The basis of sport anywhere  is competition.

But no other sport I know of tries to introduce competition by handicapping the best team...

It's not Dublin’s fault Kildare missed easy chances and generally shat themselves.

Dublin broke the model
The next model will break Dublin.

Meh! Kildare were competitive enough. Accuracy was not where it needs be but with Division 1 football next season Feeley, Doyle and Cribben to return I am optimistic that we can close the gap as Dublin will transition for a year or two before kicking on. The mad Flynn brothers were class, Dan best player on the pitch and Luke marked Fenton out of the game. A decent year. Everyone was expecting a trimming so confidence maintained. Only 2 goals conceded all year.
It all depends on whether Kildare can build on today. Next year fewer of the dropped shots, more cuteness etc. They do have the potential but will need to stay in D1.

Dublin are still going to see this out without much trouble, but they've looked pretty flat at times and made more uncharacteristic mistakes that you wouldn't have seen in past years.

Not sure if Mayo without O'Connor can take them, but it's really starting to feel like it's set up for Kerry to do them in the final. Will be interesting to see the response of this Dublin side when a top team are doing well against them in the championship.
Dublin might gift Kerry one or two Sams in between 6 in a rows.
Beating Dublin won't change the system. Dublin have the money, the population,  the coaches and the process .

Kerry are a few years ahead of Tyrone at the minute

In what way? That Tyrone side to me would appear to be longer on the road than Kerry who have much more scope for improvement than Tyrone.
Kerry brought Dublin to a replay in the 2019 all Ireland final.
Tyrone didn't do that yet.

If Kildare could reduce the errors they could be in with a chance.

What a game, the last quarter was overdrive by Tipp and after that save on 69 minutes Waterford scores 1-4 or something in 3 minutes!


I wonder will the football,  match that next?  :P

Be tough to match but should be interesting nonetheless.

Liam Cahill to get the call to come home to Tipp before the year is out.
Tipp.have reached the end of the road with that great team.
Rebuilding is going to.take a while.

That was just awful luck for Rhys, scores 15.26 in qualifying which would have given him a medal…

Max though was outstanding
He is 22 and will.be 25.in 2024.
An Dún abú.

This game should be about Kildare making a statement if the Dubs are winding down.
I hope it's competitive.

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.
