You mightn’t like this lads but when you pay money to see kildare play you have to be aware you are investing in a competition that the organizers of have taken steps to make it virtually impossible for your team to win.

Hence you should really consider not supporting any aspect of the intercounty game. I know it’s tough as we have some good players but at the end of day until attendances drop off completely change will not occur.

A fact I saw quoted over the last couple of days - the average age of the Dublin team that won on Sunday was actually 6 months younger than the team that won the first of their four in a row...........

....the only real danger to them is their own complacency.

And kerry in 4 years, looks like kerry are going to produce a miracle team. 5 minor all Ireland’s in a row is one of the greatest achievements I’ve ever seen.

if dubs were to say start fund raising for a new ground and center of excellence big business would fall over themselves bankrolling it for them, it would leave a very small pie for rest of the country most of the big clubs in dublin get more from sponsorship than most of the countys in gaa world ,some of the bigger clubs in dublin buy more jerseys from oneills than id say six or 7 counties thats the reallity of what the rest are dealing with so how do we get a level playing field ?

One simple step ahead of all others. €0 from Croke Park in order to balance up the ridiculous inequity in funding over the last 15 years. Just in the five years 2010 to 2014 they received €274.70 per registered player while we got €18.40 (linky).

Absolutely bonkers that the county with by far and away the greatest commercial potential also gets a completely unfair amount of central funding.

Why would the GAA do that though? What are you threatening them with if they don’t?

FFS Laughing It was hardly an ultimatum!

Anyway, the threat is clear: the death of football in the whole country.

The GAA will change how funding is structured when attendances are badly hit. If you want a serious cut to Dublin’s funding then have that in mind when you are deciding to buy match tickets. If you want to just post on Internet forums saying the GAA have to cut funding to Dublin well then go ahead but it’s just hot air.

It's a discussion board. Everything here is just hot air on teh interwebs.

You could actually read my hot air. I didn't say the GAA have to do anything. I've no interest in using an internet message board to issue demands or threats. Instead I offered my opinion to the question posed by moatesports in the post immediately prior to my initial hot air post which was "... so how do we get a level playing field?" You might think my suggestion is unrealistic, inappropriate, unfeasible, unlikely to happen, unlikely to have any effect if it did happen, etc. That's no problem. But remember you're blowing out as much hot air as I am. Everyone else is blowing out plenty of hot air too. Because that's what all this is!

The best thing thst could happen is that you attend games as normal when playing everyone but Dublin. Then boycott the Dublin games. It won't be long changing if that happens.

Because Kildare got absolutely nothing when Charlie McCreevy was minister for finance in that same government!

To be fair, if I'm right, most of that went into developments of a variety of club grounds etc, yeah?

Yeah - Jim McGuinness.

Not realistic - no interest in inter-county management - for the moment anyway. Can't tie himself down when he's looking to be a professional coach / manager
