I think that you are being a little harsh on the chap, sure he isn’t even the most cynical or dirtiest player in his squad. Stick a Blue Jersey on him, and maybe you’d think he was a legend.
Said it before, and I’ll say it again, if I had the pick of the Mayo squad, he’d be the first one I’d go for, and it’s not like we’re thin on the ground for attacking wing backs as it is…
He is asked to do too much at IC level. He can only mark one guy at a time, so when he was on Kilkenny, Dermo was freed up to run riot.
Him, and maybe 3/4 others are carrying a large percentage of that squad.
