Of course if Dublin win it is because of some sort of anomaly. We aren't good enough to beat them when they are at full tilt when we have a full team, so the chances of doing it with a lesser team are even more slight. Whatever does happen, win lose or draw - it is nearly unarguable that the result would be better from a Dublin point of view if we hadn't lost such good players, and also, a lesser point, but one nonetheless - that we are playing it in Croke Pk when we have such a good record (with one exception - due mainly to a mental team set up) in Parnell.
There is a chance that Tipp will be poor and our lads play up well, sport can be like that. But the reason I am not saying 100% definitively what will happen is because Saturday hasn't actually happened yet - so I don't actually know.
