Dublin' Costello throwing away the kicking tees

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

I can wholly predict other teams messing with Cluxtons tees next year. :D

Replying To jimbodub:  "No way he should have interfered with the tee the 2nd time. Bad form, no doubt. Unsporting.

But 100% the tee shouldn't have been on the pitch in the first place, Clarke shouldn't have had it already placed. He was in fact cheating and perhaps if he hadn't of cheated than Costello wouldn't have acted out in a similar fashion?

Two wrongs don't make a right and all that.

But at least Mayo fans have had a taste now of what their own players have got up to over the years when interfering with Cluxtons kick outs and I don't remember seeing their outrage at the time."
Oh jimbo how naive you are. Its you dubs that are the only ones who are in denial about what your angels get up to. We in mayo are quite aware of the ins and outs of all the cynical play on offer. At last you are finally starting to admit now. It has been like an attempt to create an omertà that Dublin player don't do anything seen as excessively cynical over the last few years. There is only one county where the omertà is in place and the whole country has a collective amnesia, for the green and gold play and win in the right way!

Cynical today is harmless compared to what cynical was in the early days of the GAA or soccer for that matter.

In the 1920s a main player like Cluxton would be taken out of it so that he couldn't play for a year. Some hatchet man that may not be part of the opposing championship winning side would break or attempt to break his legs with a tackle in a meaningless league game that would mean nothing. If that fella was banned it wouldn't mean anything to the opposing team. Breaking a jaw in a challenge all those things were par for the course. In Laois many a light skillful young hurler was broke up before he made it onto the county scene. So thankfully those days are gone,more or less.

Running off with tees, wrestling players to the ground and throwing GPS devices is very 21st century.

Yeah I knew a county player who has since passed away
He lost all his front teeth in a meaningless challenge match back in the 50's
In the first minute of the game

I knew another guy who was playing in Croke Park in an all Ireland semi final in 60's
Even though they lost he enjoyed every minute and was delighted to play in Croker
Was waving to his friends up in the stand at the end

Anyhoo Dublin won
Champions 2017 and thats that
