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
Your last paragraph sounds bitter. You need to realise how fantastic these lads are off the pitch. Clucko and Jimbo will go down as the greatest goalkeeper and manager of all time.

Greatest team ever in any sport. The full stop is important. Truly the Invincibles of GAA. 31 counties crying. Brilliant

GAA strategy over the last 15 years was to develop the game in one county only.

Just look at the games development funding, its an utter joke. Dublin receive close to 180k per club in their county.

In comparison Cork receive €7k per team.

That's before getting into the nonsense of Croke Park not being a Dublin Gaa stadium but some impartial embassy like Ground with no advantages to anybody.

Or never having to travel outside the M50 for any meaningful game.

It's pathetic that this is accepted around the country.

Its a farce of a competition with Greed being the dominant etho of the GAA.

I know Dubs that actually see it for what it is: tainted championships that owe as much to finance and professionalism as it does to coaching, skill or volunteering.

The majority will clap and nod on regardless.

The leinster championship attendances fell sharply this year, even the Dubs fans didnt bother forking out for foregone conclusions, so ironically the GAA are hit in the pocket,

I think if you spoke to Cork people you’d find that a large percentage would have really enjoyed Dublins win and 5 in a row last Saturday

Any Cork GAA supporter who lived through late 1970s and early 1980s would really have enjoyed it!!

Couldn't give a sh** about their personalities or lack thereof! They win football matches - their job is not to provide entertainment at interviews or little emotional moments to show what lovely lads they are in post match interviews.

Probably not good for the game but if they were going for 12 in a row and the Animals were the opposition, I'd still back the Dubs.

Such as the survival of the game. Continued on this financial doping will destroy it. Leinster championship is already ruined.
