Episode 1255: Dublin Make It Four In A Row, Tyrone’s Chance, Begrudgery And Spreadsheets, Ken Surfs
Dublin are now utterly dominant, that dominance franked by a convincing fourth All-Ireland final win in a row against a valiant but outclassed Tyrone team.
Oisin McConville thinks Tyrone missed an opportunity, and Mike Quirke tries to put this Dublin era into a historical context.
From the moment the season began, it was clear that Dublin were heavy favourites to end the summer as champions. Is that level of superiority good for the game, should the Dubs care, and did Tyrone offer anything yesterday that other teams can replicate in the future?
At the moment the Dubs have too many options, too much patience, are too well coached, and have a number of stratospherically good players. So can anyone challenge them next year, or the year after?
Ken says ignore the begrudgery and the spreadsheets, lets talks to the children of the nation about this Dublin team. And he tells us some tall tales of his adventures on the Portuguese high seas.
