GAA Discussion / Re: Time for roscommon to shit or get off the pot?
« on: November 18, 2017, 10:59:10 AM »
On behalf of Roscommon, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for supporting our players at club and county level, and to apologise for having any degree of optimism or ambition whatsoever.  I would like to apologise for deriving any bit of joy or excitement from any games won in the past, and apologise profusely to any team Roscommon had the temerity to beat, even if it was a rarity.  I apologise for us not knowing our place.  I apologise for those players that try to be as good as they can be, and apologise for anyone that puts in time or effort trying to improve said players.  I hereby vow to leave all matters GAA and gaelic football to Mayo, Galway, Tyrone, Meath, Dublin and Kerry in future, and will pass on to all Rossies that we mustn't dare to dream, or look for the occasional day to enjoy, and we should desist from getting notions about ourselves...

Well done to the Tyrone lads, blitzed us for 20 minutes in first half.  I feared for a complete annihilation in second half, but the Rossies stuck to the task admirably, and Tyrone kicked a good few wides as Ros were clawing it back.  It never looked like we could manufacture a goal, however, whereas it looked like it was coming for a while for Tyrone.  Plenty to be optimistic about- with the proper supports and coaching, hopefully a few of these lads will be able to step up to senior level.

Could we not just let this thread go?
Bad day for Ros- enough said.
Calls/ performances not up to it on the day: enough said. 
Hope for the future/ a platform to build on despite this disaster: enough said.
Good luck Mayo the rest of the campaign: enough said.

Interesting reading.  Apart from the difficulty of selling any radical changes that would get past congress, I'd imagine there'd have to be heavy promotion of the competition for the weaker counties:  would games be televised, or would there be a highlights/ discussion program on television?  Serious investment would need to be made, at least directly from Croke Park.  Would there be a risk (unlikely, but still possible) that SKY would have the 'Senior' rights, while the rest might get token coverage?  I've no real agenda here one way or another, just a few thoughts based on what I've read so far.  Also, what happens to London/ New York?
