    Default Kerry /Dublin rivalry ?

    Much is made of the Kerry Dublin rivalry, what rivalry ?
    It just dosent add up it just shows the power of media hype
    what generally happens is Kerry thump Dublin
    Lets look at the stats,they have met 24 times in championship football
    kerry 16 wins Dublin 6 wins 2 draws that seems a bit lobsided to me
    worse again Dublin have only beaten kerry twice in recent times if u can call the
    final of 76 and the semi-final of 77 recent before that u had to go back to 1934
    for a Dublin win so really this is all a media thing and in no way is it a great
    rivalry because to have that it must be even and nip and tuck all thev way
    That said Dublin should win today they are facing a stale Kerry team having
    contested the last 5 All irelands and been in sometthing like 10 out of the
    last 12 semi-finals,if Dublin had a record like that there would be a newspaper
    totally dedicated to them. Now as u can understand being where im from im
    not a Kerry supporter (far from it) but being a sports lover u have to admire
    them and fairplay they try to play the game as it should be played

    Well i think that wasnt much of a rivarly, but what about that for an implosion
    from Dublin,second year running totally blown away, no spirit no heart
    at least go down fighting.All they could offer was a nasty elbow from
    Ciaran Whelan not a great note to finish ure carrer on, although it has
    been a feature of his game down through the years
    Well i was wrong about Kerry being stale,will be intresting to see can
    they keep u the mometoum now like tyrone did last year, cant see
    Meath or Mayo stopping them so id say another All-Ireland final for
    them at least
