Verbal abuse? The Dubs get worse verbal abuse from their own fans than Donaghy got, besides I think it was more a case that Donaghy was singled out for verbal abuse after he 'gestured' to the crowd? If he can't keep himself in check with all the kids around watching him then he should have no place on a football pitch.
As for the atmosphere, well maybe, just maybe we're fed up to the back teeth with being the nice guys of GAA football, nice doesn't win you All-Irelands, maybe the atmosphere in McHale Park should be hostile (though I don't condone violence as there's plenty of it on the pitch when Kerry play with their sly gut & kidney punches, etc.)
Radio Kerry, come on they've enough All-Irelands in the bag to suck it up and get on with the next match or championship.
