The only thing that will stop them is Kerry, oh and if they can’t use a certain dressing room or warm up in a certain part of the pitch or have fans on the hill LOLLOL

It depends. There will be a transition amongst the panel and soon Gavin will need to look to the future. No real breakout player of note this term, and undoubtedly some of Gilroy’s early stalwarts will hang up their boots.

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Ciaran Archer to light up the championship over the next 2 years along with that new midfielder who will partner Fenton.

Until mainstream media address the big f**k off elephant in the room then I'm afraid genuine GAA fans will become increasingly disillusioned with the games. It's not an anti Dublin thing. I can't see anybody stopping them in the next couple of years. They are a great team 100%. But they've been handed countless advantages for over a decade now. The gap back to everybody else is wider than ever. They won pulling up on Saturday.

And I'm not anti Dublin per se. If they're being handed all these helping hands why the hell wouldn't they take them.
All most players, counties and fans want is a somewhat level playing field 
. In an 'amateur' sport it would be the least you'd expect. 

It's the boys at the top, yes men on rival County boards, and the GAA big boys that need to be held accountable. Attendances will drop again next year, and that's the only way the GAA can be strong armed.

Let them enjoy their 5 in a row. Tickets will be easier got for them when they go for 6 and the event junkies won't give a toss about the 7th final.

The way things are going the system is broke. We have an All Black team in an amateur game. The dubs have taken things to a level that counties cant aspire to. Even genuine Gaa people in Dublin can see the way the game is going. A one horse game is not worth watching. Best of luck with the drive for six. 

I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

On the issue of funding most of the analysis on this is rooted in a dislike that the Dubs are dominating rather than any principled or well thought reason against it. It is why we have only heard these arguments when Dublin have started to win All Ireland after All Ireland.

The funding argument needs to be split in two between the money that comes from the GAA that goes in to developing young players in the county. As Dublin has more kids therefore it is obvious it needs more money to coach these kids and attract more kids to the game. To argue against this would be to say that the needs of having a competitiave senior mens all ireland is more important that attracting kids to the game.

Other counties should also have access to this funding and put in systems to attract and coach kids. If that results in Dublin getting a bit less as other counties are coaching kids than nobody will have a problem with that.

The second aspect of funding is sponsorship which means Dublin has a huge advantage with huge sponsorship from AIG and other sponsors. There is a very strong argument for pooling this sponsorship in a way that is spread throughout the counties but it must be done in a way that does not shrink the overall pie of sponsorship coming in. This is not as easy as it seems as will the Dublin players do as much media etc if the money is going to Leitrim or Galway etc. and will AIG give as much if the Dublin players are not promoting them as much as they were.   But I do think it is the one area of funding where the argument for sharing out the resources on a more equitable basis is at its strongest.

In relation to the use of Croke Park I think the Dubs should be exactly like every other team and have to play one of their super 8 games in a neutral venue that is not Croke Park and they shouldn't get the home dressing room as default. These are little things that are largely costmetic but are blown up and used as a stick to beat Dublin with so should be easily resolved.

Lastly the issue of splitting Dublin in two or four on the basis of population.   If you do that you are tearing up the whole structure of the inter county scene and breaking up the county v county system on the basis of demographics and population size etc. If you go down that road its effectively like constituencies for general election and if you have 2 teams in Dublin or 4, well then maybe Leitrim and Sligo should comebine with Roscommon to make a team and Wicklow and Carlow and Derry and Donegal and Monaghan and Cavan and so on. In addition if you do get 4 Dublin teams and all 4 qualify for the semi finals one year, what will do for interest in the rest of the country, so people should be careful what they wish for when it comes to splitting counties.

Bottom line is that if you get your act together with underage coaching etc then if your pool is 1m odd as opposed to Laois’s 60,000 then you’re going to supply a greater number of the Con O’ OCallaghans of this world. You can’t hide from the inequality Re population. 
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.
