Is there any chance that Dublin put Dessie Farrell in charge so they'd stop winning All Irelands and people would forget about the funding question?
The conveyor belt of talent that the funding supposedly creates (miraculously really given none of the GDOs who are funded ever coach the elite players) has dried up.

Having mainly young 20 somethings going into primary schools to teach boys and girls the basics doesn’t produce leaders. At one stage we had 10 or 12 players would be legitimate captain material, now we are down to 3 or 4. Still better than most, and with our population, very competitive club scene and a heap of former players giving their time for free to coach the elite players, we’re going to be able to get a talented 30 man panel, so don’t write off Dessie just yet.

Fair play to Ray Connellan for flaging. Hopefully clubs will use funding rightly. I hear Connellan club were paying  Liam McHale 250 a session. Pat Flanagan and Liam Kearns were getting similar with Rosommon clubs. All in love of the game.  ;D ;D

Guess what?
The motion won't be going to Congress as it's deemed to be incorrect or in breach of some rule!!!

Excellent Graphics which brings clarity to the current funding situation

Interesting also to see the number of registered players per county ranking

More willful ignorance

Comparing DEVELOPMENT funding with number of registered players. Like FFS.

Nobody cares one iota of what this money actually does. A huge number of the brain dead thinks this somehow goes to the Dublin football team!

Nobody cares how  Kerry won 5 minors in a row.

No point copying Kerry. Just, Show me the money and give me a slice.

As usual no debate about development funding. Just moronic nonsense.
