In what turned out to be a very one sided game, Longford decided to play an open game against Dublin in yesterday’s Leinster football Championship. Dublin gave an exhibition of fast attacking football, brilliant to watch on one hand but unfortunately, the game has become HANDBALL, not football, with anything up to 10 handpasses in succession before the ball was kicked, probably for a score. Critics complain about the blanket defence and how it’s destroying “football”. Yet, when a team like Longford come out to play an open game they still criticize the one sided game it was, and not commenting on the brilliance of Dublin. Dublin will be difficult to beat in this form and if teams decide to play an open game they will find it very difficult to win.
