Former Tyrone hero Seán Cavanagh 'fears' for the teams chasing Dublin and warns their dominance could be such that the "GAA are going to struggle to create spectacles".

"Big time," he replied, when asked if they could win four or five All-Irelands in a row. "I think they could possibly win eight out of 10, whatever it might be.

"All things being equal, and the Super 8s will probably help them, because they've got the strength on the bench as well."

The three-time All-Ireland winner is adamant Dublin are the best he has seen.

"They had it all. They were the best team I've ever played against at inter-county level. I told the Dublin lads that after the game - I believe they're the best team I ever seen play the game," said Cavanagh.

"It was their whole system of play, their whole machine, that impressed me most," he continued. "Jim Gavin is obviously very meticulous.

"I fear for the rest of the teams, and that's being hand on heart. I'm not sure if Dublin continue on this curve that they're on, the way they're dominating Gaelic football, I fear most teams are going to struggle.

"The GAA are going to struggle to create spectacles. It's amazing what they have at their disposal."
