Would you place 6 finals in a row with 3 wins 3 losses over 5 final appearances in 7 years with 5 wins no losses , bizarre. So they’ll only match the 70’s team if they reach the next 3 finals .All they needed to match the 70’s team was 3 AIs and a back to back .They’ve won 5 and a 3 in a row .I wouldn’t equate losses & appearances in the same bracket as wins & appearances .
But , your free to feel that way
This team’s achievements are of course greater in the way you describe but the six finals in a row is nonetheless something only two teams in history have done. Even the greatest Kerry team didn’t manage it. OK it’s a bit arbitrary but in terms of Dublin and Gaelic football history it’s still something. As was the six Leinster wins in a row I’ve no doubt despite the lack of fanfare about it and the changed times in which it was matched(now surpassed).
My point actually is there’s still some goals apart from winning All-Is that might be better for them to focus on to keep the feet on the ground, including the still running Leinster record, and if in the process they win the next All-I then that’s a bonus. And in hindsight it would be an incredible achievement of course. I just think they will be trying to focus on anything but that particular one as that is the more likely thing to distract them in an All-I semifinal for example.
Unless of course they reach the semifinal and come up against Mayo…
