Maybe the Dublin senior football talk can stop now and we can talk about hurling championship again? Talk of dwindling crowds and lack of interest is no surprise when the supposed die hards in here would rather talk about football than the games.
we might even stop the elitist talk of having 8 team championships and degrading some teams who have earned their right to be competing at the level. Elitist talk of superpowers who don't deserve the hassle of playing those pesky sides not fortunate enough to have 30,000 a year managers. You have Crumlin turning over Boden, O Tooles clinging on for dear life along with Judes all the while clubs like Finbarr's are making massive massive strides off the back of a double last season and winning the first two group games in the A this. So just who are these 8 teams? Or 12 teams? Maybe Cuala should play Crokes let Vins play Boden and let that be the championship?
10-9 win was not one for the purist but it was enthralling none the less and captured the attention of those in attendance. Some huge performances from Finbarr's as Nial Brady once again showed his tactical prowess from the line.
The more teams that can get to and stay at this level, particularly those flooded with Dubs the better for the county side surely.
Anyways sorry for interrupting, who do we think Jim Gavin will pick Mannion or Brogan......?
