Replying To CiarraiMick:  "Yeah I forgot about Kilkenny. On Kearney though he was a fine footballer too and unlucky in some ways to lose out in 2011 especially. For sure football is the biggest obstacle to Dublin hurling(that's why we gave you a good Kerryman Datragh Ó Connell lol) the same as hurling an obstacle to football in Cork. Its a pity really cos even as neutrals we are missing out on seeing some great talent playing.Con Ó Callaghan is def a class hurdler and would walk on any county team."
I know it's probably not feasible. But if the football and hurling could be played at different times during the year, it would give players a chance to play both.

That's true CC, this year we're running off both comps in 8 weeks so you could realistically run off both in 16 weeks or say 20 weeks giving 4 weeks between the 2 comps..

Are dual players at intercounty level not just a bit selfish. Spread the wealth I say

To be honest Ciarraí I never really rated Keaney as a footballer. Decent but felt from a Dublin GAA point of view he didn't bring anything to the footballers that a number of others couldn't have brought, whereas the hurlers really missed him in the mid to late 00s.

When he did come back I thought he was a shadow of the hurler he could have been.

I'm not trying to put him down and have a lot of respect for him, having been on the receiving end of his skill on number of occasions I couldn't not have respect for him!

We will agree to differ mesa is. I always had time for hom as a footballer as well as a hurler. I thought he was a better forward than two of the forwards that won medals in 2011 but yes his best years of hurling passed him by.
