The general consensus is it's corofins to lose with clan maybe the nearest to them , I'll stick my neck out here and predict tubber to give it a right good rattle .

I thought Corofin might get caught today as Annaghdown are a good side with a sprinkling of intercounty players. Corofin played most of the 2nd half with only 14 men and were against the wind but actually ended up extending their lead. It's not so much the big name players with Corofin that makes them so good rather than the general quality of even their weakest players.

I actually hope they get knocked out at some point as a few of their young lads like Kieran Molloy and Dylan Wall (who was superb today) deserve game time with Galway during next year's league.

Dylan Wall and Kieran Fitzgerald were fantastic today, awful pity Daithí Burke is sticking with the hurling, he made a big impact when he came on. Wouldn't have picked Comer, Duggan, Frankie Burke out as county players today, Annaghdown were disappointing.

How did young Gary Cox get on for Salthill

Didn't start but came on for Evan Murphy when he got injured, didn't do much from what I could see and didn't score.

Gary must be 38 at this stage and still playing senior club football

Yes!!!!

What was the question again? Was it Hardstation makes all his decisions based on 3rd hand info?
That would be a very peculiar life.

The drive for 20 is on.

You’ve went from seemingly having a genuinely held if ill-informed opinion to straight up trolling now.

No question there just you ranting about something that hadn't been proposed by anyone.
Now how much money do Leitrim need to win Sam?

Why are you trying your hardest to set up the strawman of winning an AI being the gauge of success in the championship?

Also giving the super-province team of Dublin exists you could easily replace Leitrim with Kerry or Mayo and it would apply just as well. Which ironically makes the case for fixing the finances first before any childish, attention deficit induced attempts at format change are attempted.

Embarassing that Breaffy couldn’t get over the line with the good fortune they had this year.

Laois / Re: Fr Manning Cup 2018

Great win for Laois today in the Fr Manning Cup, beating Roscommon by 2-15 to 0-16. Laois would not have had their Portarlington or Ballyroan contingent.

We were hammered by everyone in the Ted Webb bar Leitrim who themselves got hammered in their opening Manning Cup match. Don’t get excited.

Interesting. Are we looking for a bit of outside help and expertise as we try to evolve some more away from the blanket approach?

evening before the final along with the minors could be a good show

That's a good idea , you'd get a lot going to the Sunday game would go along .

Would you fûck.

Some of ye are properly in cloud cuckoo land.

Jeez do you have to be so damn righteous all the time .

All Ireland weekend , you meet up with people on a sat afternoon , grub, drinks , some head out to kilmacud for the sevens . Having a game to go to on the sat evening would definitely appeal to me . It would break up the day/night too

Lads won’t turn up for a minor AI final that’s paid for on their ticket, there’s no chance f them coming up a day early or if they’re already up wasting more of their weekend on football than they’re already.

Second rate football in a second rate completion isn’t going to ever be sellable to casual supporters.

Do you mean the unmitigated eejit who built Achillhenge

If that’s what we’re up against I may as well book the hotel room for Salthill for the Connacht final

Wicklow never gave a shît about football before so it’s no surprise to see that hasn’t changed.

How short are GAA attention spans? Their proposal is almost point for point a ressurection of the absolutely squalid failure that was the Tommy Murphy Cup.

You obviously never set foot in baltinglass or rathnew

Similar to how most of Wicklow haven’t darkened the doors at Aughrim, then.

No more than our own situation -where's the GAA's ethos when lads with money decide who your manager will be?

You should ring them up and tell them you don’t want their money

wooly made a good point about a tier 2 competition in that it has to be their manin goal from the beginning of the year rather than something the are relegated to half way though the year.
If the winners could re enter the sam Maguire at sem final stage or something like it it could be a great incentive or bith dinalist promoted for the following year

HQ are really going to bite for that money-spinning AISF everyone’s been waiting for, Kerry vs. Louth.

General discussion / Re: Job Salary Dispute
« on: October 18, 2018, 11:18:14 PM »
If I were you I'd apply for a job elsewhere in another company, get an offer (that's hopefully better than what you're getting now), hand in your notice, and see if your current employers make a counter-offer.
I think its career suicide to hand in your notice and then accept a counter offer?
Your employers will keep you on, yes, but they'll know you're not happy or loyal and have now just bought themselves some time to find your replacement?
As soon as they do then you're gone, on their terms, not your own...with no job to walk in to

This is a genuinely insane outlook. Getting a better offer elsewhere and the place you’re currently at matching or bettering it is one of the most common tactics in any profession. You just make sure the job you get the offer from is one you’re happy to switch to if a counter offer is not forthcoming. This is business, not playtime.

The idea that someone is easily replaceable is not a valid one for most real professionals. The cost of replacement due to lost productivity usually exceeds the difference in salary many times over. Also there’s a thousand and one employment laws that prevent employers from firing someone in the manner you’re suggesting also.

Businesses don’t give a shït about your feelings and you would be monumentally stupid to worry about their supposed hurt feelings. Get the very best terms you can and remember that your job is just a job and not who you are.
