Gaelic football has several converging crises :

-The tackle
-The rules post switch to possession game
-Attendances
-Linked to the spectacle and over exposure
-Too many half full matches in Croke Park which is not being used coherently
-Physical demands on players esp those who get through 4 qf rounds and not last 8
-Huge competitive gaps and not enough decent matches

I think an external review is necessary
None of the teachers there at the moment have the vision thing

I agree but it needs recently retired players and maybe even current players to look at it. I don't want to see older players who want the game to be played like when they played.

Free kicks and sideline kicks cannot go backwards.
No issue with that. Just donít think it would have much of an impact on the game.

Yeah, a small start.  Makes everyone look forward at least.

So put on the blanket if a free or sideline because you won't have a need to push up on other players.

What would the sanction be?
Free?
From where?

Then who polices it? The ref while watching other half.

Umpires and linesmen at club games never neutral so can't be them. Goal scored. Sorry ref they had too few in half. We have to keep for up so have 15 v 11 in other half.

And if they don't adhere to this rule where would the free be from?

Does the ref in club football keep counting to make sure there is 4 in the half and ref the other half of the pitch as well?

There were less bad games years ago because there were less games on TV. Also games then meant more because lose and you're out. There has being some great games this year in the back door because they are knock out. The super 8s last week are not do or die and maybe one reason why Donegal didn't push up because they were thinking of score difference. Mayo games in recent years have being top class in terms of entertainment because they were shit or bust.

Did Mpabbe not take a goal of him in one game? That shot was going in.

Then they just wouldn't cross half way line. Also heard about limiting hand passes before you have to kick. Ever do this in a training drill? You get a three yard kick pass. The kick and catch is not coming back and was terrible to watch too. Perhaps the team losing could try and go get the ball might be a help.

SKY needs to be kicked into touch.

Why??

GAA games shouldn't be behind an exclusive pay wall

Is the TV licence free?

Referee still made the decision. Great final and tournament. Best since 1998.

He was definitely positive to the point of ridiculous. After that Monaghan game in Blayney he described it as a great game of football. Candidates within county seem to Jason, Peter, Mickey and Finbar. Outside I'd say McGuinness is mad for a soccer job. Maybe someone like Horan or maybe a recently retired high profile player. Whoever the appointment is they need to get all the best players wanting to play including all the Gaels lads who have no interest.

For England to improve I feel they have to restrict the number of overseas players in any team in the premiership and championship. Be interesting to see how Brexit will affect players coming here, or do they get special treatment?

France and Crotia most of their players play abroad. Doesn't do them any harm

Hooefully

Think he's gone tonight.
