GAA Discussion / Re: Gambling in the GAA - the ethical aspect

If you're a county player or have played county football or hurling you can pretty much get away with anything.

McCarron
Alan Smith
Davy Glennon
Darren Gleeson
Mark Hehir



If it was an ordinary Joe Soap, he'd have been locked up. What is interesting there is that it's pretty much confirmed Hehir only got the job because he was a GAA footballer and we have people arguing that these lads aren't being looked after well enough!
Disgraceful post.

Commenting that intercounty players get off on crimes that generally result in jail terms for the average Joe is disgraceful?

The only bad thing that can be said about the great Dermot Earley is that his character reference for Spike Nolan helped keep him out of prison for money laundering.

Disgraceful post.

I know it was a higher amount stolen but the Post office manager who Paddy Power got their teeth into was jailed for 4 years with the final 1 suspended. GAA players in general can get away with things they shouldn't which is wrong.
Bookmakers should also be held to account more when dealing with customers who suffer extreme losses, how I don't know.

He is the South African who didn't get caught.

Their result at the weekend would not inspire confidence and they are coming from a position where they were the worst team in the country. There obviously is some footballing talent in the county though but it will take time to get going.

Limerick won't be too far away from promotion either while Antrim will probably round up the top 4.

If Division 2 can have a thread of its own then Division 1 should have one too.
Dublin to win comfortably, Jim Gavin was hurt losing it last year that is how he understood Mayo's pain. Kildare will struggle, everyone else will do well apart from the other relegated team.

Well said....close thread!!

Dubs will always be vulnerable in the league due to their holiday at this time and development squad playing o byrne cup so they are behind everyone else in terms of preparation. Agree that kildare will struggle, how many of their players will be missing due to moorefield? Donegal will need big improvenment too

No Moorefield players will be missed really, Mark Dempsey is on the panel but is only a year out of minor. Eanna O'Connor might get called back up again but he struggled in Division 3 two years ago. Aaron Masterson could get called up to the panel too but would be one for the future rather than now.

Our first game away to Dublin (we haven't had a home game against them in League or Championship in almost 23 years) is huge in that respect but even at 70% I can't see us beating them, we might take their 3rd team this year in the O'Byrne cup though. If we get a bit of luck and some confidence from these games could make a difference in the later rounds though.

I didn't realise he was still that young as he has been around a while but I stand by my point.

Meath squad announced last week. No one from O’Mahony’s and more from Rathoath than Simonstown is an eyebrow raiser. We won’t have Keoghan for the league. Ronan Jones, Paddy O’Rourke, Pauric Harnan, Joe Sheridan and Ruari O Coilleann all excluded themselves from the panel. Harry Rooney has returned from Australia at least

Quote
Eamon Wallace, Brian Power, Joey Wallace, Conor McGill, Bryan McMahon, Cian O'Brien (Ratoath)
Brian Conlon, Mark McCabe, Podge McKeever, Sean Tobin (Simonstown)
David Gallagher, Shane McEntee, Seamus Lavin, Donal Lenihan (Dunboyne)
Andy Colgan, Sean Curran, Bryan Menton (Ashbounre)
Paddy Kennelly, Conor Dempsey, Luke Martyn (Dunderry)
Robert Garry, Caolach Halligan, Donal Keoghan (Rathkenny)
Shane Glynn, Dan O'Neill, Thomas O'Reilly (Tones)
Biggie, Ben Brennan (Cillies)
Dave Toner, James McEntee (Curragha)
Alan Douglas, Luke Moran (Trim)
Harry Rooney, Eoghan Greene (Skryne)
Mickey Burke (Longwood)
Liam Ferguson (Kells)
Barry Dardis (Summerhill)
Adam Flanagan (Clonard)
Daragh Griffin (Athboy)
Adam McDermott (Dunshauglin)
Cillian O'Sullivan (Moynalvey).

Not seeing a whole lot of strength in that squad and so many places up for grabs and lads still yet to prove themselves that suggests we’ll be treading water at best this year but my gut feeling is we’ll be in the relegation mix up this year and Longford might well turn us over in Leinster.

Whatever about Eamon Wallace who at one stage looked like he had serious potential but I cannot understand how Joey Wallace can still make a senior intercounty panel.

U20s can play now for their seniors but after the NFL the decision has to made which panel U20 players is on as they can't play for both the U20s and senior teams this summer.

Thanks, that is sensible enough.

Kildare are playing u20 players in this, does that have any consequence on their availability for the u20 championship. Aaron O'Neill in goals has not even played senior for his club yet but looked a serious prospect when playing for the minors last year.

Always seemed likable and was lethal pre-injuries. Best of luck to him.

So are you saying it is a possibility that they have even more money that they are not declaring? What could possibly be the reason for not declaring money raised? Could it be that they don't want people finding out what they spend some money on? Apologies if I am naive.

There is definitely some anomaly with Dublin only accounting €54k in fundraising. According to the Examiner they took in roughly €40k in one morning's breakfast so that leaves just €14k raised in the rest of the year. I suppose we should be thankful they are so lazy when it comes to this stream of revenue as they have more than enough as it is.
