Dublin Getting 2 Home Games In The Super 8s. Fair Or Unfair?

Replying To Joxer:  "I wonder will Jimmy's winning matches now bestow upon his the honour of "less tainted legacy" now that we took Tyrone down in Omagh or do we have to beat every county away now in the championship before our untainted legacy can be achieved. Paper never refused ink as they say."
You still don't get it joxer.

This whole thing was never a crack at Dublin but was against the way HQ was loading the championship in Dublin's favour so that they could get big crowds into Croke Park to pay for the dammed thing.

An unintended consequence of this approach has been that people are now losing interest in what they see as a rigged championship & that has to feed through to how Dublin's achievements are regarded.

I think this is a great Dublin team but to get the same respect as say Kerry, then they have to play on a flat playing surface the same as everyone else & part of that involves playing big games away from home & spreading the funding out.

Again, this is not a crack at Jim Gavin or the Dublin players but rather a cosy & corrupt consensus at the top levels in our games.
