They're a mixed bag. I've always been a huge admirer of McGeeney who was one of my favourite non-Cork players of all time and I'd have a lot of time for Big Joe as well. Ronan Clarke was a lovely forward as well. Crossmaglen are quite simply probably the greatest club team of all time.

However they got unreal cocky after winning one and subsequently underachieved. There was a perception that some of them thought they ahd reinvented the game. Some of the abuse some of their players and supporters threw at Tyrone people in the mid-noughties was way beyond the pale and then you have McKeever who is nothing but a fucking bully.

Thoroughly enjoyed their win in 02. They had Kerry beat up a stick in 2006 as well until Donaghy exploded onto the national consciousness in the second half.
