Not at all - why is there silence when a county other than Dublin or for example Tyrone are accused....

Very easy to say I didnt see it or hear about it - that is exactly my point...

Selective condemnation all the time.

Give it a rest you and few more Kerry posters. The genuine Kerry supporters must cringe when they read some of your and a few others bitter posts.

Unbelievable...!

Absolutely no mention at all, of the alleged contact with the eye by a Westmeath player at the weekend, which was even highlighted on the Sunday Game I might add.

If a Dublin player, or a Ballymun player apparently, or a team from the North did this, there would be a new topic on this....

Selective condemnation at its best lads.....

And this is the very reason I have absolutely no time for some of them posters on here...."
OK Fionn. I fee I have to reply to your comment.. You are wrong this time I have read through the entire thread about Ballymun. /Crokes and many posters commented about eye gouging and mist saying it was wrong. Those posts came from Dublin Mayo Tyrone etc and most from Dublin. There was only one Kerry post commenting although he did comment a lot. Again I reiterate ONÉ person and now you are making assumptions.One or two of the comments made were uncalled for like saying there s a culture in a club of eye gouging. That is wrong but as I state it was one person so Fionn I don't know why you feel the need to make that comment wondering bout why we not commenting on an alleged eye gouge. For the record I watched highlights sun night but did nt see anything during westmeath game. I did see an Armagh player involved in an incident that looked like eye contact. Finally my view on eye gouging is that it's a low life act. A dangerous act and a thuggish act and I think any player that does it intentionally is a disgrace and should be banned for a long time no matter what county they from.

Sounds like fionn didn't see the incident either if that's the case so..

Short answer is because far fewer people care about what happens in games involving counties outside the top-10, apart those from those counties. I've no idea why you're looking to stir up this nonsense again. Anything involving, Dublin, Mayo, Kerry, Tyrone or their top clubs and players, will get a lot more attention.
It's the same reason that Clifford getting a red card in a club match will generate a story on a sport website, but random Longford player won't.
This is the same in coverage of all sports globally. I'm not sure how this is surprising to you.
Give us a break from this tit-for-tat, good man.

Ever asked yourself why Vodafone didn't sponsor westmeath and AIG aren't sponsoring them now?
