It pales in comparison to where Rory McIlroy finds himself this morning but it’s good nonetheless to face into Monday morning in the knowledge that after two rounds we’re sitting on top of Division One of the NFL. We’re level on 4 points with Kerry but are ahead of them on points difference. We’ve also got that game in hand and our two wins from two means that we’re the only county with a 100% record. Indeed, we’re the only unbeaten team left in the Division and we’re the only team in the Division not to have conceded a goal to date. Sure, aren’t we the great fellas altogether?
After all that chest-puffing, however, it’s worth noting that everyone else has at least two points on the board at this stage too and if we were to hit the skids over the next two games we’d find ourselves much closer to the bottom than the top of the table. That said, if we were to continue our run in our next two outings – at home to Down and away to Donegal – we’d have one foot in the play-offs before facing the might of Cork, Dublin and Kerry. That’s not a bad target to aim at.
Our table-topping position may well have been completely ignored on RTÉ’s heroically awful League Sunday show last night but there’s a fair bit of coverage on Saturday night’s match in the papers and in the usual online haunts as well. Here’s your one-stop shop in this regard: Mayo Advertiser, Sunday Independent, Irish Times, Irish Examiner, Hogan Stand, Breaking News, RTÉ, BBC and Setanta.
