Wtf was the Kerry defender doing there at the end? All they had to do was keep possession and they win but he kicks it straight to a Dublin player and they equalise.

Some good football during the game amidst all the cynical shenanigans and ugly tackling, but a good exciting end.

13 each. Dublin hang onto their long unbeaten league/championship run by the skin of their teeth.at least the 2nd half was better viewing.

No one will beat this team.  Invincible.

Still not at full strength and still nobody can beat them. Division 1 teams need to have a long hard look at themselves.

I see Kildare sprung an unknown goal getter from the bench tonight Dinny.
Ye'll be replacing us in D1 next year no doubt.
Meanwhile if tomorrow's 2 games go to form there will be some pile up at the top of D1 and us and Cyaaaavn will be relegated (I think) with 2 games to go.

Playing with confidence but if they were to go up they would come back down. The Division 2 thread has been deleted, bizarrely .

Codding and joking aside, Kerry were well off full strength too. This Div.1 league so far shows that Dublin are a different animal in Croke Park. The reality is that a team of their quality should not lose the really important games with home advantage all the time. There is no getting away from that elephant in the room. They are a fantastic team but the dice is loaded. Only have to look at other sports, to see what home advantage means. If England played all their matches in Twickenham this year they would have done the slam. If Ireland had all theirs in Aviva probably would have done the same.

They have regressed in their style of play in the last 2 years, far too lateral and they have not been creating anywhere near as many goal chances in games as they used to. Kilkenny becoming playmaker hasn't helped.
The strength of their squad is crazy at the moment though.

Kerry are well off Dublin with any 15. To continue your analogy it's a bit like saying if Italy had Castrogiovanni they'd have beaten Ireland. Mayo give them a bit of a go but ten games without a win speaks to the one-sided nature of the end result of that match-up too.

84-year old unbeaten streak equal today by the capitalists. Only thing standing in the way of them and tumbling that Kerry record is Roscommon..

With last nights results the table is wide open again.
You would expect Monaghan to join the top 3 today all on 7 points.
Donegal have showed so far they are not just a team in transition and are a very tough team to beat at home.
Their home match to Monaghan should be a cracker.

You would expect the Dubs to make the final but it's still very up for grabs who they will play.

How many games will Donegal play at home in the Championship?
How many will Dublin get to play at home? Will Dublin be asked to play away from home from the League final to the AI Final?

Donegal at home doesn't seem to apply to Letterkenny though, whatever the reason!

Haven't lost in Ballybofey in seven years. Can't remember the last one we lost in Ballyshannon, although we usually get teams down there in the blowing gales of February.
