Back on topic, the previously mentioned biting incident could see that number reduced to 7.

already dealt with still 8 try again

Dealt with in what way?  Surely DCU won't just let this matter drop, irrespective of the amount of money they make from the Dublin GAA teams  Suspect 

from what i have heard dublin gaa have dealt with the issue,you will have to wait to see how the leinster council deal with it,

In all seriousness Champers, what is the story here?  We had rumours of Philly McMahon on Paul Kerrigan a couple of years ago, and last year we had the Kevin O'Brien & Paddy McBrearty incident.  Now we have this.  

Is there any truth to these biting rumours and, if so, is it something that is being coached in the capital? Are Dublin fans embarrassed by this, or is it seen as 'all part of the game'?

So, the suspension for a bite is 8 weeks.

I wonder does the whiter-than-white Jim Gavin agree with this length of ban and, if not, will he now put his money where his mouth is and remove the suspended player from his squad.

I told you that dublin gaa dealt with this incident last week do you ever listen,when i said that, it meant player remvoved from the squad straight away but you must allow due process.YOUR digs at gavin are stupid harte has stood over tyrone players for years so your county has no credibility there .

I see two major differences.

Firstly, Harte has never had to stand over any of his players following a biting incident, whereas Gavin has had 2 such cases from within his squad in the last 12 months.

Secondly, Harte doesn't claim that his side are angels. When defending his players, he usually points out that everyone else also employs less than ideal tactics at some point, and that Tyrone should not be singled out by the media.

Gavin, on the other hand, claims that he would substitute players engaging in cynical fouling, and that he has high principles when it comes to playing the game in a certain manner. Statements like this are hypocritical, not only because of the biting, but also after the way Dublin closed out the AI semi-final and final last year. Any side would have done the same as Dublin, but Gavin has the bare-faced cheek not only to deny it happened, but to portray his boys as footballing purists. That is why I have little for him.

Maybe you should put up a few quotes from gavin,as for the last mins of the s/f i cant recall any such incidents my lasting memories of that game was closing it out with 2.1 from play but saying that it was hard to see anything on the hill after the kev mc goal it was stir crazy.as for dislike of jim sure you have history with the dubs hardly surprised there after all one of his better days for dublin as a player was the 95 final,next thing you will be saying dublin were cynical closing that game out Rolling Eyes

Peter Canavan assaulted every time the ball went near him?  Charlie Redmond being sent off for a headbutt, yet refusing to leave the field and playing on instead?

You and I obviously have different definitions of 'cynical'.

Costello looked very good. First time I've had a proper look at him.  I don't think he is quite as neat a player as, for example, Mannion, but he is very fast and very direct, and is yet another option for the Dubs in attack.  The run he made to set up McMenamon's goal was impressive.

Less impressive was Mick Fitzsimmons who struggled, and Alan Brogan has a long, long way to go if he is to get back to anything close to his 2011 level.

St.Vincents reach the club final courtesy of a top drawer performance from Mossy Quinn who registered 1-08.
His goal showed remarkable nous of where he was/the defender/goalie were and the posts. He then put the 14 through for the next goal although I can't see Dorney challenging any place in the Dublin squad. It's a pity he wasn't a bit heftier when in his prime as he's clever enough with ball in hand.
Connolly played well, comfortable on the ball and always looking for the best option/pass. Ballinderry were up to the old trick of rising him, getting in his face etc., until eventually Duffy yellow carded him for feck all.
They'll need more from the other 4 forwards to get over Castlebar I feel.

Castlebar overcame Dr.Crokes once Killarney lost the Gooch to a knee injury. A tale of 2 sides here as Castlebar finished like trains, whereas Crokes ran out of juice. It's becoming something of a habit with Kerry teams of late this running out of gas lark. They may get back to the days of Micko doing the 100 laps and 50 wire to wire gigs. Interesting to see Paul Durcan (7) helping himself to 2 green flags, the 2nd of which was a lung-bursting effort to arrive on the shoulder of the furthest man forward.

2 reasonable games, both pitches looking good and plenty of supporters.

Mossy having a great championship him and Feeney really leading the line for their respective clubs,Vincents look favs for me with a little bit of help from Heffo,
Heffos club and county have not let him down since he departed it would be a fitting tribute to Heffo if Vincents deliver on Paddys day

Cluxton has stepped down as a first team senior player with his club, but will continue to play in the lower leagues where he believes he will enjoy his football with his pals.

Bernard is a class act and any team would miss him but i thought the forwards done well v cork 18 points and a few bad mistakes when the game was there to be won cost them,was impressed with chris cuckian he looks like hes making strides.copper looked excellent as the game went on.Dublin are probably looking for 2/3 players from this league campaign at the most to give them a chance of retaining SAM.

Bernard is a big loss whenever he doesn't play - the forwards don't carry anywhere near the same thread without him. Along with MDMA and Cluxton, he is one of Dublin's 3 key players. MDMA's value was clear against Cork. He was completely anonymous, and Cork enjoyed a lot of success at midfield. Dublin need to find another midfielder for the summer, in case MDMA is injured/suspended or just has an off-day.

Looks like the end for 2014 all right. Bad luck for any lad playing the game. I'm at a loss to understand how these cruciate injuries never happened in my time. I'm assuming that the bucket of could' water sloshed over your legs was the panacea for all injuries. If it was, then it worked.
