Colm O'Rourke vs. the GPA
« on: October 26, 2014, 07:30:31 PM »
Anyone read his articles the last two Sundays and the response from the GPA?
It was pretty obvious last Sunday that the word had gone out from someone within the GPA to players to have a go at him on Twitter.
I don't agree 100% with him but if what he says about the text message that went around to players is true, that's a bit pathetic.

Its a free world(yeah right). If Colm wants to have a go at anyone though a public medium. Then people have a right to answer back through their medium. Tough if they ganged up on him and he did not like it!

The Leitrim lads I know don't whine half as much as Colm does. You take the shots at people, you take the blows in return. Simple.

The article didn't merit the over reaction it got. The GPA obviously have a big propaganda machine.

I disagree with a lot of what Colm says too, especially the nonsense about going on strike, etc., but he's right that the GPA seems to have become fat, dumb and happy in its role as a constituent of the GAA itself. And I'm not at all surprised at the response of the GPA. Their leadership have always displayed a unique blend of petulance, paranoia and dog ignorance.

I don't think he's that bothered about players responding to the article, I think it's more to do with the fairly obvious mobilisation of that response by the GPA, i.e. the text message.

So raise a voice against the GPA and you can expect torrents of abuse for that point of view...whether there's validity in the aruments made is irrelevant ....is this how we would like public discourse to take place? Not healthy IMO

Donal Og seems to be in over in NY every second week. Nice gig if you can get it.
