ones who see whatever the buzz thing to go to that week
i dont think dublin are alone in this though all four counties will have ones
waiting on tonights result and decide then
problem here is the fac dublin are classed way above meath in media terms now
makes what normally is an easy sell a lot harder for both counties
to get people who go to big games to buy into it still being a big game
without the media telling them it is unfortunatly.
sure we will all be there supporting our counties thats all that matters

Obviously not.

They were at all the Home League games this year, and a good few of them made a number of the away games too. Football and hurling. Stood in the cold at Walsh Cup and O'Byrne Cup games this year and last with at least 3 of them. Most of them went to Kilkenny for the Laois match and were in Portlaoise the following week as well as in Croker for the Wexford game.

All of them have been actively involved in their GAA clubs most of their lives through playing football and hurling as well as now coaching underage teams.

But a few of them might not go on Sunday if Ireland are playing in a knock out game in a major tournament for the first time in 14 years and only the 5th time in history. So yeah not true fans.

Well what it means is they are now more interested in soccer than Gaelic football.
I would go to Dublin match regardless of any other sport as they are the sport and team I support. Because something else happens to be on at same time makes no odds to me I support Dublin.

Well if you support Dublin all the time and haven't much interest in soccer and just because it's hyped up decide to stay home and watch a soccer match instead of the team you support all year around.
I would actually label that foolish and easily lead more than anything else.
The perfect phrase to describe that would be the sheep syndrome.

Foolish and easily lead? Right you are then hill. Doesn't matter that I've not missed a game all year (including O'Byrne and Walsh cup) unless the 2 codes clashed, I'm just a sheep. God forbid someone might want to enjoy an atmosphere with friends, be patriotic and want to see their country do well. Must be great to be the perfect Dublin fan hey?

Why can't people do both, if, and a big IF Ireland do win later? It's on a 2pm and our game is on at 4pm?

Done with this site, too much hard work being in the presence of holier than though 'perfect' Dublin supporters. Enjoy the game Sunday lads and ladies.

Exactly each to their own man.

That's why Meath people can support both the Dubs and Liverpool instead of Meath and Ireland.

Just a random example.

No it does not mean they are more interested in soccer than Gaelic Football necessarily. Most of them support Bohs, Ireland and the Dubs. All are involved in their GAA clubs in some capacity.

It might mean that they are more interested in a game (if it happens) that comes around once every 14 or so years then a game they see fairly regularly that doesn't have the same attraction that it once had.

Imagine that!

Less of the true fan BS, if a Dublin result plucks on your heart strings you're a fan, it's ok to like both, not to mention it's an expensive hobby for a lot of people these days.
