I would very much hope that the county board has a plan in place for managing the transition from minor to u-20.
The transition from u-20 to senior is less important in the short-medium term, as far as I'm concerned.

The link between adult and underage success can be a virtuous, or a vicious, circle.
Lets say Meath have better footballers than Dublin at minor level.
If we continue to struggle at senior level, how many of these lads will want to dedicate their lives to playing for Meath?
It's all those Dublin minors want to do.
And yet, if we can't get those lads to come through, we won't progress at senior level.
U-20 is the key grade really.

If Joe Brolly finds out his head will explode.
I'm sure their senior counterparts will be a lot more competitive though. That being said I see Marty Clarke is looking for Poacher to take over Down and he would be a huge loss.
Big win for Meath, they have their act together at underage again.

They have been decent the last few years, won the u17 Leinster last year and this years current bunch have been talked about for a while.

But it's how Dublin develop 19-21 year olds that sets them apart.

Sounds like Cian McBride dominated midfield this evening.
Hearing whispers the aussies are sniffing around him.  >:(

I think there should be a Mill button for everyone in the crowd. If the game is too defensive & boring fans can press a button demanding an immediate Mill. Being the GAA a 2/3rd a majority is required. Once 66% of people push Mill button, the ball will be burst by the referee signifying that all players are required to beat the shite out of each other with the help of course of back room team and the Maor Usice. Referrees, linesmen and umpires will look at the sky during the Mill and all TV cameras will zoom in on some fine thing in the crowd.

Once the players have seen sense after the mill is complete and a few stern words are had between the ref and captains about the terrible negative football played, a free flowing wonderful game will resume.

Mill buttons will be supplied at an extra cost of 10 euro per patron with Old age Pensioners, students and U12s getting a reduced price of 9.50.

Everyone is a winner.

There won't be many mills in Breffni Park.

Losing the O'Byrne Cup final has hit them hard.
Grown men weeping openly in the streets.

I've previously heard Martin say three different contradictory things in the space of a single sentence.
I wouldn't pay too much heed to him.

RTE should get Wooly in to do a midweek show ...

not everyone likes him but he has a great knowledge of the game and all of the players even from the so called weaker counites....

If you just put a camera in front of the GAA Hour podcast each episode you would have 4 hours of fantastic coverage to put on RTÉ each week. It would cost RTÉ F all! I would love to see what Wooly and his guests could do if they were actually allowed analyze a bit of footage

Exactly, same set up as this except maybe have more of a studio feel to it so mikes etc. are less obvious.

Pat really needs to be put out to pasture at this stage.
There's any amount of young, articulate analysts out there who could do an excellent job if they were given the chance.
They won't give you any folksy soundbites about dance halls though.
RTE's model across all sports is to have at least one person on the panel who will cause a bit of mild controversy and generate conversation.
Very few people will ever say to their workmate on a Monday morning, "Did you see that excellent bit of analysis about Mayo's kick-outs last night?", whereas they are a lot more likely to say, "Did you see Brolly going mad yesterday?"

No self-respecting Kildare man would lower himself to drive a subaru anyway.

The problem with the GAA is we are so heavily integrated that it is hard to allow for unintended consequences when you eventually do decide to change something.

It all sounds a bit fishy alright.

Don't think a run in the qualifiers will do Tyrone any harm.
