There’s an element of truth about the footballers. No doubt they’re a great team but the absence of another great team has made things easier for them.
In the 70/80s you had Dublin, Kerry, Offaly
Late 80’s early 90’s Meath, Cork, Dublin
90’s you had several teams Down, Derry, Meath & Cork
00’s you had Armagh, Tyrone & Kerry.
None of Dublin’s current challengers will go down as greats of the game, team wise.
