Some of the greatest players ever played with that side but Christ it's hard to like the likes of Cluxton & Jim Gavin. Joyless cunts

The primary advantage Dublin have is that everyone is living and working in one area. That allows them prepare to as close a professional standard as is possible, and more so than any other of their main challengers.

The Croke Park advantage also needs serious discussion. It's been turned into a home ground, and nobody can deny the evidence home advantage provides in all sports. The fact they now pull such paltry crowds for most games should make it easier to force the Leinster semi, and without doubt the "neutral" super 8 match out of Croke Park. Playing every league match there also surley needs rolling back. League kick off, and another headliner, and it should be as a double with another east coast county.

There's a lot to look at in how our competitions, fixtures and so on are set up so you'd hope these advantages get reined in a bit as part of that.

Saying that, while they have advantages they've done everything in their power to take advantage of them. Cork is the only County with many of the same benefits and we've made a shit show of it by comparison, as have Galway to a lesser extent.
Finances both from Croke Park & Corporate - and note the ladies are under the same sponsorship, while our ladies look like they get knock off supervalu jerseys by comparison
Almost every game at home
No players traveling 1-3 hours each way for training
90% of 1 end of the ground given to the Dubs - not done on the other side
Parade up to the endline on the hill end - Dublin always on the outside
The first day a Dublin song was sang 15 minutes before throw in to get the crowd going. No Kerry song
Throw in times (Saturday nights) to suit Dublin fans who have to pay 3 euro on the bus to get to the stadium

to name just a few of the advantages

the only difference between Kerry and Dublin on a financial bases is that the dubs get the money up front and Kerry get the money under the counter .The Kerry management and players get everything they want ,how much was spent to keep Clifford out of the hands of the Aussies?

Cork won in 10 only for some dodgy refereeing. Dublin will be go down as the Greatest GAA team in history.
