So let's have free admission then? :D

No. Let’s not compare our entry fees to those of other sports, who have completely different overheads (professionalism). Let’s not create a “we need more staff to do things that aren’t needed” civil service style culture. Let’s try to fill out grounds with the wider GAA public, and not make following county teams a pursuit of the diehards only.
they may have to pay the players but they in general gave shit facilities apart form the top 3 rugby teams and ulsters was built as part of a peace dividend as for soccer not one club has a ground equivalent to any county ground not to mention bigger clubs.
a lot of money could be saved  if fewer stadiums were bulild buy would you county be willing to give up county matches . Ask kildare

Shane Walsh of Galway gave his views on the new rules talking to rte
 "The hand pass rule seems just a bit daft with three. You’ve gone from a record number of hand passes in a game to three hand passes consecutively. I think that’s a bit of an extreme jump.

"If the ball can be moved forward quickly, move it forward quickly It's not a case of we have to count this hand-pass and use the three and then kick. Just play the game as you see it.

"If the attacking mark goes through, you will look to play to players’ strengths.

"You’re probably going to see a few big lads you’ve never seen before play football inside in the full-forward line. I think it brings a bit of excitement – you’re showing the art of catching and kicking, which is a huge part of what Gaelic football  is about.

"So I think that would be huge if they implement that one. But does it slow up the game? Will teams use the time advantage to kill off games? It’s 15 seconds, that’s probably something that trial and error will work out. I don’t know. For us, having the likes of Damo [Comer] inside, it would be something you’d like to use." :)
I notice he didn't mention the sin bin this has to be a must one of the more positive proposals"


.
I too would be a supporter of the forward mark,Michael Murphy,Aidan o shea in around the forward line,soaring for high ball.it did not work too well for Jason Doherty's in the fbd last Sunday, he caught a high ball was in on goal but was called back for a mark.it can be tweaked though.

From a mayo point of View Reape plunket and Mcdonagh look ready to take teir places whenever call on . I think Diskin could do with another year but has massive potential but need to build his strength on the ball .  howmany of the players yesterday will play come summer maybe 5 of the statters for mayo ,

Was hoping Conor Loftus would have made more of his opportunity yesterday. He is in danger of been cut if he doesnt up his game. What did you think?
I don't think conor loftus is built for the FBD it seemed to be very soggy onder foot and bouncing ball were a hazard. it can some times gie cover to slower players who  wont make the cut under former ground

Heard from our lot that it's in Tuam.
Hope they're right and not just wishful thinking.

not sure why any one would want to go to Tuam. the stand side is a dup and should probably not ne open the roof is rusting away abd the seat seem to be made for national schools kids
other than that very enjoyable game with Michal daily looking like hes going to Fulfill his potential as he really turned he game in a very Short period.

The Mayo team to start v Galway on Sunday. Higgins,Boyle,D O'Connor all back.


1. Rob Hennelly - Breaffy
2. Keith Higgins - Ballyhaunis
3. Brendan Harrison - Aghamore
4. David Drake - Ballaghaderreen
5. Colm Boyle - Davitts(C)
6. Michael Plunkett - Ballintubber
7. James McCormack - Claremorris
8. Donal Vaughan - Castlebar Mitchels
9. Diarmuid O'Connor - Ballintubber
10. Fionn McDonagh - Westport

Loftus and Boland need big campaigns in the league to start staking a proper claim . Loftus has massive potential
what about the drake after nearly 10 years nearly time to claim a jersey
hard to believe Eoin o donoghue and reape were on the 2016 squad . they should be well ready at this stage

Players opting out on Cunningham. Colour me surprised. Who could have seen this coming?

I think those that opted out did so before Cunningham was even in the running for the job.

Correct but not as good a story to peddle.... there is normal player churn, a few post college travelling,a few in 30s retired , and 2 or 3 unavailable... No big story...
I would not be so sure about that. There are players from other counties opting out for a variety of reasons but the bottom line where the vast majority are concerned is that they can't don't see any point in putting in the sacrifices needed to compete at intercounty level when they know there's nothing in store for them except Armageddon when the meet Dublin or one of the others that are attempting t keep place with the Dubs.
John Maughan has had over a dozen who told him they weren't interested. Last year, the Fermanagh manager had much the same story to tell and the Tipp squad were a few first choice players who didn't commit for another season.
THe numbers defecting will continue to grow, I'm guessing.
are there any figures to back that up or otherwise?

Stop! your redner is contributing to global warming 😂

Ha! That could only be the case if global warming and climate change were actually true! More democrat lies.

Some light reading for you -https://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-scientific-consensus-intermediate.htm
the problem with limiting free speech on any subject is one  its achieved the list of subject that are limited just grows and grows , todays its mainlty call foe Racist sexist or anti Homodsexual arguments that get call to be banned  but Climate change and  anti-Vax'ers  are being targeted whats the next area to be targeted?
people may agree racism is a bad thing  but not necessarily on what constitutes racism .
for example could stating Verified facts about the make up of American Prison population be Racist ?

Sinn Fein didn't like that. Truth hurts I suppose.
its shocking though to hear a leader make Quips about balaclavas to sinn fein when it took decades and a lot of courage for them to discard the armed struggle,
it shows a crass lack of sensitivity fro a Taoiseach,
esp one the oversees the guards wearing them in dawn Raids

Rete presenters wages are a fraction of what they were 10 years ago and the level of complaint has gone up .
just shows you how right Gerry Ryan was to resist it ,
if some one presents a show and it makes a profit I have no problem them getting their rewards.
and no you don't pay their wages any more then you pay the wages of a guard . thought next time your pulled over tell him you do.
 see how that goes down

GAA Discussion / Re: Half Parishes
« on: December 13, 2018, 02:42:30 PM »
There was talks of a parish side taking shape around 7/8 years ago when Rhode’s second team won the intermediate championship before the introduction of senior b.
It didn’t take shape.

I believe that all clubs should remain as independent entities …look at Mullinalaghta. All of the clubs in the Vincent’s parish have more numbers than Mullinalaghta, except for Kilclonfert.

Then you have the Edenderry-Ballyfore situation. Ballyfore are currently struggling in the fourth tier of OY football. Contested an intermediate final in the last 10 years, before senior b was introduced.

Edenderry had a mass exodus from their club when players were told to solely concentrate on football.
Unfortunately for Ballyfore, this would be to their detriment. Taking in 12 fellow parishioners. They returned to Edenderry the following year, pissing off Ballyfore, their arrival to Ballyfore was not universally welcomed either.
Ballyfore we’re intermediate until 2015. Got relegated from junior A in 2016, won junior B last year, struggled at junior A this year.
Worse again, their whole underage setup is in with Edenderry, with Ballyfore having no say at all.
Not even a concession of jersey colour or name. Their best player, David Brady transferred to Edenderry upon their relegation from junior A. Because they’re in the same parish, this has set a disastrous and in my opinion worrying precedent.

There’s plenty more examples too, which is quite worrying.
its hardly a precedent its always he way with half parishes and as  often the traffic is both ways. players who are dropped or fall out with the larger club often seek refuge with the junior club indeed it often how the junior club ids formed in the first place  look at the ballygawley/errigal Ciaran  row drom years back , but it great to have the junior club there to allow these lads to keep playing .
ofte time there is a unnoffical arrangement as to the border between  certain clubs though enforceable only by a lifetime of hatred and distrust
 im sure bally fore don't want most of their team made up of townies

It’s very possible that the four clubs in the St Vincent’s area in Offaly were all occupying the four semi final spots of the Offaly junior football championship in years gone by. Ballycommon, Cappincur, Daingean and Kilclonfert were all junior at the same time for a while. Cappincur are now senior A, Ballycommon and Daingean intermediate, while Kilclonfert remain in the junior ranks.
And may of these young lads would have grown up playing for vincents together so they may be a bit frustrated with the divisions . but another way of looking at it is how many extra jerseys there are to fill . may be if they had one senior team and kept the own clubs junior teams.
not sure if operates like that anywhere .
may County board have always been  dead set against split parishes as we found out in keenagh years ago.we had to  remain under the cruel Crossmolina tyrant

Daingean in Offaly has 4 half parish . Daingean , ballyconmmon kilclonfert and Cappincur thought does the main parish count as a half parish?

the  main difference between a Parish and half parish team is players from the Parish can play for any of the teams
