The size of Paul Kerrigan.

A game like this should be an armchair ride for a ref, but Brannigan seems intent on 'stamping his authority' on proceedings.

Brannigan must have got a new black card during the week.

Too many big, awkward lads playing for Cork.

Can see Kerry winning this by 10+.

Have my doubts about both hand passes for the Cork goals.  :o

Would O'Brien have got through so easily if the Cork full-back was on the field?

Two teams looking to play football.
How refreshing.

Nope.
On the radio they reckoned McGleenan was up-ended by someone in the middle of it.

Two straight reds for Cavan after the final whistle!
Cormac Reilly doing the Lord's work.

Cavan beat Down by 2.
Sounds like there were 'unsavoury' scenes at the final whistle.

I'm actually a bit worried about whether discord might raise its head in the Dubs camp this year. Like any successful team there's been a great bond and togetherness between the team of the last few years. It had threatened to go pear shaped about 5 years ago when Philly and Diarmo had serious fisticuffs at training, but they sorted that out and it brought everyone closer.

This year we've had Connolly leaving. Now it's certainly not all to do with Gavin, but the fact they don't really get on hasn't helped. And Gavin certainly didnt go all out to try and get him back onboard.

There have been rumours circulating, totally unsubstantiated, of a few of the sub forwards not being happy with their opportunities, or lack thereof, and in particular of the stated policy of training impacting on teamsheet not being adhered to.

Dubs have had a lot of injuries in defence during the league, and actually down to the bare bones with Howard being relocated from wing forward to wing back leaving the back 6 as Fitz-Philly-Lowndes, Howard-McCarthy-Cooper with only Daly really left as an adequate replacement.

But now McCaffrey, O'Sullivan, Small and Davy Byrne are all going to be available, so who gets left out? Some big decisions coming up and there's going to be some disappointed experienced players.

Okay its definitely easier to keep everyone happy when you're winning, but its harder when you're telling experienced All Ireland winners who are still at the top of their game in their own heads, that they're only on the bench. Will be interesting to see how Gavin manages to keep the happy camp.

In summary, Dublin's primary weakness this year is the fact that they have too many good players.

Maybe the Super 8s will inject a bit of life into the championship, but if the actual entertainment value doesn't improve, the novelty will wear off pretty quickly.
I still watch the football because I'm conditioned to watch the football, however, lately I've found myself wishing there was hurling on instead.
