Looks that Tyrone Dublin game was a bit lively the weekend, the video doing the round of the half time punch up is very full on!

Media trying to blame Dublin for it, even naming Dublin players but no Tyrone ones :roll:

I don't know that much about the GAA , the football is great to watch but the hurling (while skilful) I find hard to follow

Dublin recent record is fantastic no matter what sport your in to win 5 titles in a row is great going, but the law of averages says they are bound to slip up in a knock out game sooner or later, I thought Kerry could and proably should have won that first final last season.

Would they or one of the ulster teams be the biggest danger to Dublin this season?

Kerry have everything it takes to beat Dublin - they have the players, the resources, the physical and mental strength and the heritage. They just haven't yet.

Tyrone can beat Dublin if Dublin aren't 100% on it. They have the system and the system is all, bow down before the system. They don't play much football - they play anti-football. Somewhat ironically they have a lot of really skilful players and some of their club sides are a joy to watch. The other thing about Tyrone is that, much as it has caused a crisis in football, they are possibly the only truely innovative team in gaelic games since the second world war.

Mayo have the players, but they have the mental fortitude and organisational backup of a slice of easi-single processed cheese food
