Joe Brolly’s war of words with Kerry doesn’t look like ending anytime soon, and he has launched another stinging attack on them in his column with Gaelic Life.
Brolly was on the receiving end of some stick from Kieran Donaghy at the end of last week’s All-Ireland final, because of an article he wrote a few months previous saying the production line was dead in Kerry.
However, what seems to be irking Brolly is the belief from Kerry supporters or former players such as Pat Spillane that suggest Kerry won last week’s decider against Donegal by sticking to their traditional core principles.
However, it was clear they engaged in a blanket defence strategy, which ultimately led to a very poor All-Ireland final with scores at a premium.
Brolly has said that if Tyrone introduced puke football then Kerry were the little girl in “The Exorcist” whose head revolves as machine guns the walls with a torrent of vomit.
Brolly wrote, “Gaelic football is now a race to the bottom. The debate about system v more skilful individuals has been emphatically settled.
“Jimmy’s monster is already sweeping through club football.
“Now that it has the endorsement of the Kingdom, that process will accelerate.
“They will celebrate in Kerry, but for the first time ever, no one else will.
But no one outside of the county wants any part of Sunday’s joyless, ugly travesty. So, well done Kerry, but you can get off your high horse now.
“Maybe it’s only puke football if someone else is playing it.Tags:
