This game has taken a life of its own!

Between whats going on on the main board, facebook, twitter, national airwaves, print media etc etc etc

Is this the most bitter game played in GAA in modern times?

Christ lads, this isnt football, this is all out war!

Would have to agree. I just hope the tension doesn't spoil what should be a great game.
I have a strong feeling that there is a lot of enmity between these two teams. Wouldn't it be an awful pity if the result was determined by a black or a red card.
It feels like there is more at stake than winning a match. There are a number of oppositions at play here: country v city; the perceived 'haves' v the perceived 'have nots'; the 'jackeen' v the true gael; the hungry losers v the smug champions, the flair team v the gritty team etc.
It will be interesting to see which side prevails. I am expecting a bruising, bitter encounter. It wont be a classic but it will be enthralling.
