3 All-Irelands in a row. There's not much that can knock the Dubs off their perch at the moment. Tonight, they deservedly won 7 All-Stars, but not everyone in Dublin is happy with the results.
In particular, a Dublin player missed out on the Footballer of the Year award for the second year in a row after Andy Moran picked up the honour. Also, despite a great season, and captaining his county to an All-Ireland title for the 4th time, Stephen Cluxton has missed out again. The Parnells man now hasn't won an All-Star since 2013.
Many Dublin fans, and even some journalists aren't too happy with the perceived snubs. Even one former Dublin footballer couldn't hide his shock.

Stephen Cluxton, 3-in-row skipper, standard-setter, giant, genius, finest season.
Credibility leaves building

Stephen Cluxton (correctly) shortlisted for F of the Y. And doesn't even end the night with an All-Star. Farcical, really #PwCAllStars

My only gripe with this years All Stars is how Stephen Cluxton didn't get one. He has captained Dublin to Three All Ireland's in a row and has been exceptional. No offence to David Clarke but it's scandalous that he was picked ahead of our Stephen. Always an All Star in our eyes pic.twitter.com/udsRy3Xhj4

I doubt he gives too much of a toss but Cluxton's non-selection is bizarre. Only 5 All Stars in total for him doesn't seem right either.

Im sure James McCarthy looks at his 5 all ireland medals every day and cries thinking "if only i could play like andy moran" 🤔
