They want to pay players and managers but also stay amateur. Best of luck with that.

Sure that's what's happening already and has been for a good few years. It has worked so far. Most people haven't the brains to work it out for themselves so just accept the lines they're spun.

The past few years they've been "softening " us up, preparing us for semi professionalism. The next leader of the GPA will take this a bit further down the road. The amateur days are long gone in most place at this stage. It's only a matter of the patrons getting their heads round it.

The "patrons" won't care one way or the other once admission prices don't go too high.
Mind you €30 for NFL Finals is a bit severe.
I suppose there's nothing in it about splitting Dublin with its 1.3m population (probably 1.6 by 2034) as it would probably have been shelved if there was??

Professionalism might still be better than what we currently have with one pro team and a bunch of counties putting themselves in debt chasing them, all be it not a better solution than reigning in the wild horse in the first place

30 Euro for two national finals is very cheap Rossfan, take a look at the prices of other major sports before you spout that nonsense line again. Though something tells me you are petrified of catching a contagion if you look at another sport for too long.

Other major sports are paying their players € millions so have high admission prices.
I don't watch other sports,apart from occasional bits of Aussie Rules and have no intention of either.
A good walk is far more beneficial than watching young millionaires playing some boring game I have no interest in.
Now toddle along and watch some rubby if you've all you're colouring done.

I hope you tell the NCAA that colleges are paying basketball and American football players ‘millions’..

The NCAA is a bit of an outlier. It's a total scam that leaves the players with nothing and the top managers with everything. Oh and it's a "non-profit" organization like the NFL. Don't get me started.

Professionalism becomes a place of work , how could you legally stop a transfer market ?

2034 there will be discontentment in Tyrone with some calling for Mickey Harte to step down.
