It always fascinates me how're Dublin supporters on here like to insinuate that they have the inside story on Dublin all the time. For probably most closed management team in the history of GAA, I think there is probably a lot of bluff & hyperbole in this regard.

Leinster Football The Reality - 9 Like(s)
I remember being at the replayed Leinster final in 2004, when Westmeath won their first Leinster title, The scenes on the day were amazing & will stay with me always. How anyone could say that that spectacle in Croke Park was in anyway enjoyable. Seeing idiots in other threads speaking of a 'sweet victory' for Dublin. How can a victory be sweet when there is one team in the country that dominates because of years of financial doping. I hope that the numbers continue to plummet & the GAA can finally see the harvest of chaff that they have sown.

Posters Crossing The Line - 9 Like(s)
Have noticed an emerging unsavoury tone by some posters of late. Indeed, what is surprising is the posts that are being generated by users that would have appeared level headed before. There is no place for personal slights on players or indirectly on their families. Important to remember that these are amateurs giving a big chunk of their time to their counties & for our entertainment. Keep the slagging general. We never know the impact of flippant commentary. #Give respect. Get respect.

Can't believe he is still permitted to post. I agree something not quite right there.

Thought this thread was about this years Leinster championship. Didn't realize it was a historical dissertation.

Replying To cacsmckilly:  "Hopefully Hughes will leave McCann s hair alone this time round"
I don't think that likely to happen again cacsmckilly. McCann now has a tactic in place to prevent his hair being touched again - he now dives before any potential contact.

Replying To Jack_Goff:  "I'll try this again. Hopefully post approved this time. Preliminary Round: Louth v Wexford...........Louth Kildare v Wicklow..........Kildare Meath v Offaly...............Meath Quarter-Finals: Dubs v Louth..................Dubs Kildare v Longford.........Longford Meath v Carlow..............Meath Westmeath v Laois........Westmeath Semi-Finals: Dubs v Longford.................Dubs Meath v Westmeath.......Meath Final: Dubs v Meath..................Dubs"
As an outsider I don't agree. I think Westmeath would beat Meath. More experience & cohesion.

Replying To realdub:  "Do you know what? I couldn't give a monkeys arse whether our fans turn up or not. I'm pretty sure the performance and result are slightly more important. But feel free to look for something negative to point out, if it makes you feel better."
Ouch - did that hurt sweetie?

Are The Rumours True? - 6 Like(s)
It would appear to be fruitless anyway as I doubt if there will be any championship after watching the footage on Twitter of the carryon in Dublin last night (and I am sure replicated across the country). Bloody idiotic & so disrespectful to those who passed & to those who work in hospitals & emergency services, absolutely disgusting.

El Clasico 2020 Monaghan Vs Cavan - 5 Like(s)
An inevitable outcome due to the ineptitude of the county board first & foremost. What is that line about doing the same thing again & expecting different results. It was proven that Banty was not up to the job & yet he was given it. Any accountability anywhere?? BTW I wonder where is Hardcore? Very vociferous in his support of Banty but strangely quiet now.

Replying To Joxer:  "Dubs won their first AI in 16 years in 2011. How much "financial doping" had taken place at that point? 11 of those 2011 players are still the backbone of today's magnificent panel. Perhaps the whingers should look closer to home for their excuses. I've a lot of respect for Mayo and Kerry because they put it up to the Dubs and so too have, and probably will again this year, Donegal. Dublin were terrible in the first half today. A half decent team would have led them by 3 or 4 points at HT. But no, "financial doping" was the reason why Meath created bucketfuls of chances and kicked them all wide. Honestly."
Oh sorry you are right. Nothing to see. Move on.

Replying To galwayfball:  "Well done . Better team won"
Thank you. Fairly equal I would think but a few changes made by Galway were questionable. Ye should have won but when it went to extra time, I think Monaghan had the momentum & belief. Good luck in the championship

Replying To jim88:  "And here come the naysayers.we should be glad a manager of bantys calibre wants the job and row in behind him and the lads for 2020 with less of the negativity from the social media trolls.banty puts his heart and soul into everything that breathes Monaghan football.rough year with the u20s this year but any other team in Monaghan he's been with he has brought a lot of success and no shortage of passion.."
Heart & soul won't win anything. This is an absolute joke. An absolute embarrassment. And the greatest insult to the lads who TRULY have put their hearts & souls into their county. Their commitment obviously meant nothing.

The Corona Virus And Possible Effects To GAA Matches - 5 Like(s)

Replying To galwayford:  "As a S.F voter I would disagree. I think they should be given a chance to govern. They would be good for the GAA and Irish language. And probably the economy too. They would bring an all island view, which to me, we are just a small island on the edge of Europe. And need to pull together."
They had a chance to govern but didn't really engage in any meaningful way. If the ever got any power, I would be out of here like a rat out of an aqueduct! Truly would be the end of our great Republic.

Replying To neverright:  "I love the Baldrick line 'I have a cunning plan'."
Should be a great game & looking forward to it. Would be great to see Fermanagh win their first Ulster, but I would have to lean toward a Donegal win. Wishing both sets of fans a great day. There is nowhere quite like Clones in an Ulster Final day - enjoy every minute.

Replying To Wally:  "Your spelling and grammar is atrocious."
If the subject is plural, (spelling & grammar in this instance), then the verb (are) should be plural. So the correct grammar for your statement should read 'Your spelling & grammar are atrocious.' Wouldn't normally point such trivia out but just as a FYI
