That’s fair enough but the Dublin and Mayo situations are very different. Mayo seem to get extremes of positive and negative media comment neither of which are all that accurate with some of the negative comment in particular such as Flynn’s AOShea comments being pathetic self serving bull.
What’s happening with Dublin is entirely different. A level of blatant media bias, prejudice and small minded jealousy is allowing a negative slant be put on the achievements of a phenomenal bunch of players & manager. And this is then tied in with what is a deliberate attempt to ignore / undermine our achievements in how these various awards are decided. Not only that but the awards then get tied into events such Philips Manager of the Year Aard which as happened yesterday involved inviting Jim Gavin to the awards and then have him sit there while award he should have got is given elsewhere while the smug fuckrs who made the decision sit close by congratulating themselves on getting one over on him.
You’re right though in that at the end of the day these awards come a distant second to wining what we have won. You can take view, ■■■■ the whole lot of them for their jealousy, bias, ignorance and delusions of self importance! And that is probably the right approach. Makes our wins all the sweeter. But ultimately I like others here ain’t going to let it go without calling them out on it. As I said earlier fair play to David Kelly for calling this out for what it is. Hopefully one o two other journalists will do the same
