True, For Cavan to win they will need every thing to go right for them - including the ref - In fairness they have had two poor refs in their ulster semi final and final. And I dont rate Brannigan as much better. Coldrick or Goff are two of the best referees in the country and to be fair having a Meath man in the middle would probably have been the fairest all round. I doubt Cavan management/players are paying too much attention to whats been said here though. We are all just blowing wind here!!

Replying To The Quiet Man:  "Any other County player outside of Dublin would have got 48 weeks One rule for the Dubs another for the outsiders. Lads try and look at the Cavan game try and make an unbiased assessment of the full game and the overall performance by the Referee. My own opinion is that decisions balance themselves out most of the time. Overall I feel he had a good game. Referees have a split decision we have the luxury of replays ect. I will ask just one question: A player gets a black card correct decision as the rule goes then around the 42nd minuet that same player gave a Donegal a right elbow into the face continued up the field and Cavan scored from what in fact should have been a red card and a free for Donegal, As I said decisions balance themselves out. The second black card was spot on as the rule goes and the offender will agree with me if we chat about it. The Donegal line ball that Cavan got they also scored from that decision so overall decisions balance out over 70 plus minuets. Cavan are the holders of the Anglo Celt cup and were deserving winners on the day. Good luck to the Cavan team next week play your best and hope for the best. Gone well so far so no reason why it should not continue."
Every analyst I've listened to said Brady's black card was wrong because intent wasn't clear and obvious. You've a bee in your bonnet about the current management and you're letting yourself down now with petty bitterness. It must be killing you that they've proven your doom and gloom predictions of 6 weeks ago to be completely wrong.

I think it's more the mindset of other Leinster Counties. Monaghan have competed well against Dublin in League and Championship over the past few years. Even Fermanagh when Pete McGrath was manager didn't stand off and admire Dublin when they played in Croke Park.
