Quote from: Chrimtain on December 05, 2023, 02:20:49 PMWhat clubs are discouraging their players from representing Laois? Hurling or football or both?
Would you blame them?

Quote from: Ballygowen on December 06, 2023, 11:08:30 AMYes, most definitely would blame them. To discourage any young player from playing isn't good. It doesn't help anyone. County teams need everyone. Albeit in Laois the silverware might not be a certain, it still gives the player the opportunity to paly at he top level.

I don't condone active discouragement, but I also don't blame players for staying away. The GAA is having a real identity crisis at the moment, and for the likes of Laois and many other counties, there's a meaningless to intercounty participation that is very hard to deny. There is no doubt that players would be better off looking after their personal wellbeing; their jobs, their relationships and their homes. It's no fun representing Laois at the moment, and playing the game should be enjoyable first and foremost.
