Quote from: Duine Inteacht Eile on February 12, 2024, 10:31:43 PMso it's not as if there is no GAA drive or ambition in the school.

Maybe things have changed, but there wasn't much application when I was going through.

A bit of enthusiasm, but no direction to it. Even back when there was men that clearly could coach, the actual standard of training was abysmal.

Representative democracy is a shambles.

Look at the state of those being elected across the world. If it were a professional position that required submission of CVs and interviews, how many would pass the first stage of vetting?

Probably more accurate.

Quote from: Sandstorm on December 18, 2023, 09:40:52 PMShort memory Wobbler. It's not long since the debacle of Burrenbridge that cost £500k. Paid a massive non refundable deposit of £450k. Who do you think paid for that and are still paying? THE CLUBS.
Why do you think similar could not happen again?
Waken up and .........

So your agreed it would make sense for the clubs to pay it down now rather than continue to pay interest on the county debt to the banks.  ;)

Quote from: thewobbler on December 13, 2023, 07:04:03 PMIn NI the big two, who never agree on anything, have decided to throw the civil service under the bus for doing this without their knowledge. Which is of course horse shit and the real reason is has happened is because the civil servants in question were bullied and likely bribed into taking it on the chin.

This approach allows the blinkered supporters of each party to believe that the behaviour of their leaders is different to that of the crooked Boris Johnson. And they will lap it up.

I don't particularly want to defend either SF or DUP - both are two sides of the same turd in my view - but....

If the civil servants had either a semblance of balls or brains, they'd have backed the stuff up. Its not as if the politicians could touch them.

But they have neither. You'd have to travel a long way to find a more gormless bunch of fuckwits.
Quote from: whitey on November 23, 2023, 09:02:33 PMThat's the worst thing they could do

They're outnumbered 50:1

They need to deescalate before it becomes 500:1

Nah, send in the Army and fuk them up properly.

Ye could almost see the Rangers salivating from here at the chance of laying fists on some of these scrotes.
This is where the undue influence of lawyers leads to.

In an environment where anyone and everyone is open to legal action for the square root of fuk all - then the guards are afraid to do anything.

Proper order would be to baton charge the hoors and break at least one arm or leg on every one of them. Then not bother to provide hospital treatment. Let the c**ts learn to appreciate what actually happens if they were rejected by society.

Dunno if this has been mentioned yet, surprised if it hasn't.

Quote from: weareros on November 13, 2023, 09:30:15 PMCasement should only be used if a near capacity crowd is expected, or at least 20,000 and up.

I've been waiting on this....

Indeed. Surely the likes of weareros can't be that stupid they dont realise the ulster council are going to try and fit everything they can think of into casement to try and justify it.

Scotstown vs. Trillick for instance? If Casement were built that's probably where it'd be.

Well... I suppose they are insisting on a relatively high maintenance cost millstone around the neck of the Gaa to little net benefit... So maybe they are that stupid.
Quote from: weareros on November 13, 2023, 08:14:09 PMYou don't need to worry. There's nearly 2,00O GAA pitches in Ireland where you can stand. I recommended one stadium in each province to be a modern all seater. The grey concrete empty terraces in Páirc Uí Chaoimh look ridiculous. Casement if built to designs will look so much better.

... and if its a provincial game (club or county) that I want to see and it happens to be in Casement?

[which you know the Ulster council are going to flog to death to try and justify it]
Quote from: Brendan on November 13, 2023, 08:00:14 PMI'm guessing you're a replica of the stereotypical small angry Irish man/Leprechaun the Americans envisage us all to be

Small leprechauns wouldn't get much of a view in the terrace.

Although I'll freely admit I'm pretty angry at the farce that was and continues to be Casement Park.
Quote from: weareros on November 13, 2023, 06:45:46 PMall seating stadiums like Casement is the way to go for the future of gaelic games.

Fuk off.

You sit and watch a game if you want. Don't deprive others who'd want to stand.
Quote from: Saffrongael on November 11, 2023, 10:32:55 AMI agree with your point but it's not all seater so you would assume there will be (slightly) cheaper tickets

It effectively is if your replacing one person sitting with one person standing. Which is what the folding seats do.

Spectator density doesn't change so price changes come at effective loss to organisers. Which the Gaa won't wear for the first reason of the original post - paying for it!
I take it all those advocating for this design have no issues with the price of tickets to games. Indeed, have no issues with the price of tickets to games (in casement) jumping.

They'll need to increase to pay for it and without any terracing, there won't be a good spread of ticket price points.

It's a design that is not placing the main user at the centre. It's built for concerts and the odd soccer/rugby game. Bad top level requirements = doomed to failure.

I keep repeating myself but I'll say it again - this is not a design that anyone with the best interests of the GAA in Ulster (and I suppose enough intelligence to look beyond the bling) should be supporting.
Quote from: RedHand88 on November 04, 2023, 12:42:39 PMHave you planning permission for any of that?

Are you actually hiding behind the decision making prowess of the planning office?
