Well whacker you might call them excuses but I call them facts.

Fact Dublin have a bigger population.

Fact Dublin play the majority of their games at home.

Fact there are more jobs in Dublin to keep their young players from having to go abroad ( you don't see the Aussies after their young footballers )
Fact Dublin have more money than any other county.

By the way I don't have a new Kerry jersey yet , it's not out till Christmas ;-)"
Shur those 'facts' were always there kingdom chap 1 but ye never complained when ye were winning!!

2 wrongs don't make a right old bean.


That's right Dublin having the largest population since the GAA was setup in 1884 and today are both 2 wrongs. Some county has to have the most people. It can be as big a hindrance as a positive.

New Zealand 132,910 male rugby players. England has 1,428,862 roughly 10 times their playing population. New Zealand 3 World Cups, England 1. Who dominates the game?

Ireland has 140,716 registered male players and only beat the ABs once but regularly beat England, like this year's 6 nations. Player numbers debunked.

Whammo from Antrim has totally taken apart the whole 'open the finances lid' lark along with other posters.

You can't compare a professional sport to an ameture sport.

You can compare population in a county to playing population therefore you can take other examples in sports where this is and isn't a factor
As Laois76 points out, New Zealand are the best rugby team in the world and they have a playing population a fraction the size as to what the likes of England has. Considering Kerry's number of titles I would have thought you'd agree that population doesn't always matter - quality not quantity and all that.

New Zealand were the best at rugby before rugby went professional so your wrong there not to compare the two.
