I can't explain it, it just is, it always has been and there's no reason to believe it will ever change. We lose games we should win, Kerry win games they should have lost. End of story.
Shouldn't you really throw in an obligatory "unlike the hurlers who have such a great winning mentality, never give up attitude" there for the full effect?

No, I'd have a lot more time for the footballers than the hurlers. I'm not slagging the footballers, I'm just frustrated it has to be like this with them. They deserve more than one AI.

Well that's fair enough, you're entitled to your opinion. I picked it up the wrong way, I thought it was along the lines of some clown I heard coming out of Killarney last year "Shouldn't have bothered with this, we'll stick with the hurlers this year, they'd never disappoint" - capitulating to renowned bottlers Galway certainly fitted that bill, didn't it?

Can't stand that attitude. It's prevalent among Cork hurling supporters too ("feck them, they're useless"; then they get to the AI final;"where's my ticket")

had a big discussion with a hurling man this weekend. Had to dispel the myth that anyone can produce a footballer with a few hours in the gym nonsense but that hurlers are just born.

I used the dublin hurlers as my example that you can produce hurlers anywhere with the right effort and structures.

He was in his 60s though so not much hope convincing him.

I'll be at all the games and will support the lads but I don't see it happening.
What are you on about fear and negativity like this post here is our biggest enemy.We have a brilliant team and the lads showed by the way that they dealt with those Mayo thugs in the second half of the league final that they are very determined to land a second all ireland in three years and show the rest of the country that we are a great team.As Davy Russell the jockey from Youghal said in the examiner yesterday with better luck with the injuries Cork should win the all ireland this year.We have the best forward line in the country and man for man we are the best team in the country imo.

I agree youghalie.i can understand why people are apprensive, and logic does show cork dont win many irelands.
