not sure wat it says wen our minor manager is doin tv commentries for u20 football games in the middle o championship.
Can't see the problem to be honest. Surely he's entitled to do whatever he wants in his spare time?

Fair play to the minors, beating Antrim today. I must say, I didn't think they would. Leaves them with a preliminary quarter-final against Kildare, and hopefully they'll negotiate that hurdle successfully, too.

They were well ahead by about 8 or 9 but Antrim levelled it with about 5 to go

Good to hear, more important to pull a victory off when the chips are down than cruising from 8pts or 9pts up to double that and learn little from it. Could be one of the more important victories this year for this crop of players.

Hard luck to our U20 hurlers tonight shocking way to lose a game. On a side note no cash being taking on turn stiles tonight and elderly people outside without tickets couldn't get in. Cop yer self's on cash is king at games for people to get entire. Not everybody is up tickets on there phone. Cork and Tipp gaa are taking cash but we can't  elderly people are afraid to go to fames now with the fear of not getting in my god the social side of the local games is gone. But still taking cash inside for programs and at tge shop. I rest my case.

I went to one of the minor hurlers' games in O'MP, and they accepted cash off me...

I thought this u20 group was supposed to be quite good, no? Have they not underachieved a bit?

That's an awful regression for that group. Questions must be asked how this was allowed to happen. They were one of the best squads at the younger ages hammering the likes of Offaly and Westmeath and now they have lost to those two at minor and u20. Next year's team lost to Kildare at minor as well. Worrying for the future.

Taking off lads then bringing them on. Other subs getting no game time at all wouldn't fresh legs in extra time be a help.

Exactly. That group performed famously at the tony forestal and won the Arrabawn shield beating tipps first team if I remember correctly.
I questioned why at least 5 to 6 lads to the age walked away this year who were all mainstays of that group . The management went with a large amount of last years minors but the step up to u20 is massive.
In all reality it was a complete shite show from start to finish. A serious knock back for laois hurling.

Yes I donít know anyone involved but it did look a bit of a mess to me. I hate watching good players who are making avoidable mistakes due to a lack of coaching. There are some good hurlers but there seems to be an idea that good players donít need coaching, which is complete nonsense. Weíve seen the same in football over the years.

Westmeath wanted it more, which is also not good.

The substitutions were just farcical to be honest.

As for the no cash policy, itís just stupid and annoying. Iíve gone to less than half the games I ordinarily would because of this and Iím sure Iím not alone.

Valiant effort from the minor hurlers this evening. Couple of turning points that eventually got a useful dublin team over the line.
2nd game in the championship where they didn't make use of the extra man which is a pity because I thought they matched the Dubs in nearly all areas of the game.

I think Dublin were absolutely there for the taking for our minors tonight; a few botched goal chances (including a missed penalty, and an effort that hit the post) cost them. Still, at least they were beating who they should've been beating, and have definitely improved since the start of the championship. Actually, they've come on a good bit since over the last year when they were losing to the likes of Meath, so fair play to Damien Carter.

Two sending offs in the closing stages, and Dublin down to 14 men too. Was the ref overly fussy?

RuraŪ Kavanagh hit a lad, and a Dub came in as third man and flattened him, so got a straight red. Kavanagh was lucky enough to just get a yellow card that time, but picked up a second later on.
