The Glenswilly star slammed those who dished out the dirt to Donegal after their dour display against Dublin in the All Ireland semi-final.
Murphy fumed “It was unfair – nearly bordering on disgraceful some of it.
“I thought after the way we worked all year it was a bit disrespectful.
“But that’s the way people react and to be quite honest it didn’t bother us and it hasn’t bother us.”
Murphy said Dublin played a system game over the past few years but nobody dared slag them off.
But he says he knows Donegal have to, and will, improve next season.
“We know we’re going to have to improve on a lot of things because the semi-final performance wasn’t good enough for us.
“Going out again next year we’re going to have to double out effort,” he admitted.
And he revealed that he can’t wait for the new championship season to start despite the fact that Dublin have just been crowned champions less than a week ago.
“I think form meeting players and people, we’re all dying to grit the teeth and get back into it.
“I suppose it’s going to be second season syndrome, as they say, and it’s going to be hard to replicate 2011. But it won’t be for the lack of effort,” he promised.
