No one is an idiot, well no one involved with the hurling panel anyway (other places it is a toss up). But you can not be an idiot and still do a very poor job, and that is what is happening here. Dublin can still win, and Cunningham can be doing a poor job. I am basing my judgement on the decisions I have seen, not on results. It is very possible to run a business and fire your manager after he made a million euro profit, if he should have made 10 million. You base your opinions on what you see, anyone who is guided in their opinions by one off match results hasn't got much faith in them in the first place.
It is also possible that Cunningham has learned on the job, and will do better. All I know is that 2016 was poor enough for him and it looks like Cunningham knows that too because he reversed all his major decisions as the year went on.
But this a nuanced discussion, it is not at the level of ' who have you managed anyway', so I am probably having it with the wrong person.
As for this discussion re the past going on and on, I suggest you are the single biggest contributor on the topic. It is crazy to expect people not to refer to the level of player loss coming up to the first game of the year - but you are the one who keeps it going...
