You run out of superlatives trying to describe the grit and spirit of this Dublin team. They just never accept that they are beaten. Another monumental fight back (twice) in Tralee last night. Well done lads.

Can't help but feel that Dublin would have been better losing that long unbeaten record in a fairly meaningless league match. It is a bullseye on their back for the bigger summer championship games ahead if they win their remaining 3 league matches. Both Tyrone and Kerry really should have beaten the Dubs and I think that the distance between them and the rest is over exaggerated. The Dubs are still the team to beat but they are certainly no stronger than they were last year and inevitably the hunger levels will dip later on in the season given the amount of miles on the clock.

It's any 2 from 4 to get into the league final whilst it's 1 from 3 to see who joins Roscommon in division 2 next season. Cavan give themselves a lifeline today with a good performance to beat Mayo. It's probably the first time Cavan have beaten a top county in recent years and could be a breakthrough win. They have to beat Kerry next to give themselves a chance of staying in the division.

The way the table has worked out means despite their being no semis this year, the odds of their being any dead rubbers in the last round of game is remote enough [Cavan v Roscommon might be a game of 2 already relegated teams if Cavan lose to Kerry and Mayo beat Tyrone]

The 4 teams on 7 points mean competition for the final spots is nearly certain to go to the last day.

If they beat Roscommon in the last game and Mayo only manage a point from Tyrone and Donegal they might stay up anyway.

Can't see Mayo getting a point from either to be honest.

Relegation might not be the worse thing?

For Roscommon maybe with a big turnover of players and rebuilding with 21 to 23 year olds is probably better done in Div 2 but i don't think an established and experienced Div one team/top 3 team like Mayo want to be playing Div 2 football in 2018.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Just checked there. Mayo's recent McHale Park record is awful!

Looking at 2015/2016/2017

Mayo have played 10 games at home

We have won three - Monaghan (15), Down (16) and Roscommon (17)

We have lost 6 and drawn 1.

On the road during that period is Played 9 Won 5 Lost 4.
