Is Mayo the one big county where the supporters don’t ever really hold the players to account? After Sunday’s game all the commentary I see from Mayo supporters seems to be raging at the ref, Dublin etc etc with endless praise for the players, losing speeches etc etc. Very few seem to comment that the game’s winning was within their teams reach and capability and external factors should have been rendered irrelevant.
In any other leading county (think Kerry for example) the post-mortem would be clinical and cutting - clearly assessing where their players/management had failed and how that could be rectified. Not particularly pleasant but effective.
Does this different approach from the Mayo fans create a culture where falling just short is acceptable? Are Mayo fans part of the problem?
