Absolutely - disgraceful for officials to vote how they did that time. NEVER AGAIN.

See Donegal have kicked up over Dublin in Croke Park in Super 8s. Glad to see what we began is continuing.

Also hugely embarrassing week for clubs like Kilcullen & Grange who so pathetically bend the knee to the Dubs & GAA HQ.

The rest of us are out there kicking ass & taking names and those boys are too busy looking for Bernard Brogan's autograph. And yet they'd be the first to hop on the bandwagon after a spectacular display of defiance like this.

Would make you sick.

First game is supposed to be neutral round though. They can't win as rules on their side but at least they are showing up the bullsh*t again. Line in their statement summed it up as they want clarification as to how the same ground can be neutral and home for Dublin.

It is total bullshit - and as Jim McGuinness says, leaves a huge question mark over their legacy. Not that there aren't plenty anyway with the rampant financial doping.

Don't expect that to hear that out of the likes of Spleen O'Riordan & Yawn Moran tho.

First question to Jonny Cooper or some such from the Paper of Record: "Jonny - is this Dublin team the greatest team of its generation or the greatest of all time?"

Pass the sick bucket. Then pass another one.

Btw if you want a good laugh check out Alan Brogan's tweets & columns on the matter - they are genuinely risible, farcical.

The Kilcullen & Grange lads think it's great stuff no doubt.

For the record

Its one home game, one away game and one game in Croke Park. No mention of neutral as far as I know.

Having said that it's great to see the morons over on res duds having a complete meltdown with the whole thing. lol! lol! lol!

This is fuckin epic.

I don't think Donegal are onto a winner here. The rules don't say a neutral venue. What is specified is that the first round of games are to be held in Croke Park.

Which is not to say that I don't hope they succeed. I hope they do but I just can't see it happening.

The question I believe Donegal want clarification on is how can your Neutral Venue and your Home Venue be the same place. This is the very same argument which was questioned in the egg chasing as to how Leinster could play both there Home games and Neutral games in the Aviva.

Nub of the issue, which actually gives Roscommon or Armagh a case to move Dublin's third game more than Donegal to move the first.

As TK rightly points out they have tied themselves in knots with this and the only way out is by playing their "home" game in Parnell Park.

In essence the GAA are classifying Croke Park as a home venue for Dublin whatever way you want to look at it.

I thought for years Croke Park was never a home venue for Dublin according to the Dubs and the GAA.
Well looks like the GAA have rubberstamped it now for all to see with the way they have set their fixtures for Dublin.

Last Thursday Alan Milton literally said Croke Park wasn't their home on Newstalk.

Where did all this BS about "neutral venue" come from................ Nothing about it in the super 8 rules.

Home, Away & Croke Park all that are mentioned...............

Now if some people are trying to prevent Croke Park being hired by the Dubs for their home games at least have to courage to be upfront and say so................they might even get support !!!!

But Kelf, while I agree rules are clear, is it not fair to ask why in a simple three game group one side gets two home and one away, another one home and two away, and two more get a home neutral and away. It literally destroys the integrity and fairness of the competition. Correct the suits at Congress still drink on gravy vote and won't even show what way they vote in what is pure selfish politics, but back in the real world counties cannot object or raise questions until fixtures published which is all that happened here. A very fair question is being asked that will put pressure to make sure 2019 is different.

This was voted on by all counties at Congress (or was it a Special Congress ?).

so all Donegal are now trying is generate a little bit of hot air to lift their players but compared to NEWBRIDGEORNOWHERE its a little cold & flat............

Now if you want to demolish the stadium which happens to be in Drumcondra and build a NEUTRAL one where do you propose to site it ??? 100 miles off-shore in the Atlantic of the Celtic Sea !!!

The question for Donegal (and Kildare) is how did their 6/10 elected delegates vote !!!

As you say "the suits" at Congress often did not show how they voted. In the past many had no idea what they were voting on. Some there every year for 50/60 years. I got my ass handed to me when a club nominated me for the role..............

The Capacity for Parnell Park is 13,500.. maybe Dublin should be asked to nominate a ground for their home match v Roscommon/Armagh.
