Of course you would. Nobody else would though. They were after all the second best team of that period.

Replying To AgainstTheOdds:  "Tyrone would have beaten anyone else in the country bar Mayo

If they played more open they'd have lost even more comprehensively.

If Mayo don't win this year and I don't feel they will there is nothing stopping Dublin putting 6,7 even 8 in a row as there is nobody out there that will compete with them."
Well to win the AI you need to beat the best.

Who knows if they'd get beaten by more if they'd played more openly.

I think it's clear from yesterday that they won't beat Dublin playing with that many men behind the ball.

No chance. Dublin are too rehearsed now in playing against that style.

Hope you are right , Kerry with there 37 all Irelands , 79 munster titles need to be challenged, a century of dominance needs to be stopped.

Replying To Jack_Goff:  "Remember a few years ago when I started making the threads about how Dublin dominance was killing leinster as a province. Well I have to say I'm enjoying seeing them dominate on a national level now too.

People from counties like Tyrone, kerry and donegal used to laugh saying just get better and Dublin are beatable by the likes of them. It's funny seeing people these same people now whine about them dominating the all Ireland.

I have zero sympathy for any of you. You didn't want to hear it the last few years regarding leinster but now that you're all getting hammered too suddenly it's an issue. Karma.

What's going to happen is hurling will become the premier championship every summer because kilkenny have faded and Dublin will have kilkenny like dominance over football. Only difference is Dublin have the resources to stay dominant forever unlike kilkenny."
Dry your eyes Jack, dominant teams come in cycles. your constant whinging is getting unbairable.

Replying To mayotyroneman:  "for goodness sake will you stop going on about tyrone setting up the wrong way. They did not get the individual performances they needed yesterday, and they had to play to their strengths. Tyrone are an ordinary amateur team unlike their opponents. yesterday had nothing to do with tactics...address the real issue here"
For goodness sake will you ever cop on to yourself .
