Off the Ball asking why the duo brought it all up again, why they haven’t let it lie. I’m surprised they held their council for so long. To have been turfed out after a year must have been distraughtful and very embarrassing. Knowing the background stuff as they’ve described it must have been rage-inducing.
This notion that this Mayo group are somehow an exceptional bunch of dedicated men intent on etc etc is bollocks. All intercounty players put their lives into it. If they want to know why they still haven’t won they should look at instances like O’Sé’s effort at a point in the replay, and O’Connor’s free. Eventually you have to just do it, end of. And there’s no hiding from that fact.
The idea above of a Gilroy type being required is spot on. It’s all too cosy, and some need moving on.
Mayo folk must despair.
