Vincent Hogan: ‘It’s all about the winners – everyone else is just an add-on’

Mayo have been accused of surrendering to a sense of Mardi Gras before previous finals, is there any palpable sense that it's different this time?
JOHN MAUGHAN: "It's definitely different. Maybe the supporters have hardened and matured a little. With the exception of bunting and a few flags out of cars, I haven't seen any of the crazy stuff this time. Cows aren't being painted, they're being allowed graze in their natural colours!"
So is there an element of role reversal here then, a sense that all the hullaballoo this time centres on Mayo's opponents?
