I could patronise Mayo. I could write about their great supporters, the players’ warrior-like spirit; the fact they were missing two of their best forwards in Ryan O’Donoghue and Tommy Conroy.

About their leaders in all sectors and how the team is in transition and why Sunday’s defeat was just another bad day at the Croke Park office for this group of players.
