    Other then players get taken care of better financially in terms of expenses and the costs involved with them playing inter country GAA I don't think there is any big call or push to make the game in any way professional. Personally as someone who was lucky enough to play for Kilmacud Crokes and Dublin minors growing up until I concentrated on football full time I am always proud of what a positive role in general the GAA is and plays in our culture.

    Should be a flat fee for every player on the panel and based only on how long their county remain in the championship paid by central council so as not burdening individual counties. Giving percentages of the gate will only make the strong stronger and the weak weaker.

    Also it should be a top priority for Dublin to develop their own ground separate from Croke park and Casement park to be redeveloped.

    What’s the prediction for Saturday? I hate to say it but I think Dublin will win it rather comfortably, whilst Kerry being Kerry will never fear Dublin, Dublin’s supreme athleticism will see them up to their old tricks and blitzing Kerry in a 10 minute spell in the second half. More to come from this Kerry team, you don’t win 5 all ireland minors and not bear the fruits of it.

    I think Kerry will run them close aswell.
    Although Kerry played ok in the last game , they missed alot of goal chances.
    1 cleared off the line.
    Penalty saved and another world class save by Cluxton in front of the hill to tip over the bar.
    Clifford wasn't great either.

    I just hope it's another close game regardless of who wins.

    Kerry adapt to how the opposition quite well. I think they will do ok tomorrow but think with it being 15v15 Dublin will be better equipped in terms of fitness.

    I felt first time round their was a chance of a Kerry shock. This time around I have abandoned all hope.

    In what was effectively a winner take all match that Kerry team could only draw with a Donegal team missing 3 first choice defenders and losing both midfielders to injury. They were also looked completely out of their depth in the 1st half of the semi against Tyrone.

    Disagree with this. Kerry have shown all year that they learn and adapt. Against Cork their defence was comical yet they managed to fix it and now they are in the final. Tyrone played better than them for one half, they adapted yet again and won.

    Kerry are going to learn against Dublin and while I don't think they will win, I think it will be Dublins fitness that will win it for them.

    Agreed. I don't expect anything other than a slaughter.

    They were lucky to have a half to adjust against Tyrone a more clinical Tyrone would have been out of sight. They should have beaten a severely depleted Donegal team comfortably. I hope your right and they can make a game of it today
