You're not grasping this are you? I'm saying the intercounty system is fundamentally flawed. I'm saying that all issues associated with that will never be solved as long as intercounty is retained. Therefore, until Leitrim by some miracle get 15 decent players, they will always be what they are. As will many other counties. It's a numbers game in more ways than one and it's not fixable. Intercounty is the very embodiment of the GAA, albeit it is fundamentally flawed

Not at all. I said at the outset that the Intercounty system is fundamentally flawed. That it doesn't allow players such as McNamee the opportunity to win anything noteworthy in my opinion underlines that. The GAA will never be equal as long as the Intercounty system is retained. Of course I wouldn't expect people from Dublin to agree that the GAA is inequitable. I probably wouldn't be too bothered either if we won Leinster titles and All Irelands for fun.

Offaly have won sam 3 times

Granted. And hopefully they win 3 more.

I am grasping it. I just donít agree with you on the solution. Allowing county players to move county is not going to allow Leitrim to win an AI. It is just as straight forward as that. Letting leitrimís best player leave to join Dublin is not going to help Leitrim win an AI. You havenít mentioned a solution that will allow Leitrim to win an AI,
What you want is for individuals to be able to move freely depending on their ability. But the only benefit for this is to the top most elite players who could all group together in Dublin or Tyrone or Kerry. Youíll never get me agreeing that that would be in the interest of the gaa as a whole.

Tbh I'm no longer interested in intercounty. Find it all a bit pointless. Then again I'm from Laois, so that might explain why.

High Fielder, the GAA is a community organisation first and foremost. And as a community organisation it functions incredibly well.

The sporting element is important, but does not, should not, and was never meant to, take precedence. Everything else makes sense once you appreciate this.

Leitrim have a similar chance of winning the All Ireland as all bar the top ten premiership Clubs and more than some of them even,
Sport titles are great to win because they are difficult to get . there us no honor in getting  a lollipop for competing  or changing the rules to make it diffiult for the best team to win. Im Glad Dublins reign was finished by been beaten by a netter team on the day rather than bu some bullshit rule changes designed to hold them back

Dublin were in poor shape this year.
The fear is they'll get back to their all conquering selves in 22.
Last time I looked the GAA was an organisation that ran the Sports of male gaelic football and hurling.
Maybe Rounders and handball in there somewhere too.

Yeah, but as a neutral not complaining enjoyable game.
