Tippabu  you haven't insulted or upset me at all.
No harm in a bit of debate at all.
I strongly feel incessant handpassing has ruined football and when you combine that with ball carriers being let do what they want while getting frees if touched.....
The latter left defenders fearful of tackling at all which led us to blanket defences and turning the game into soccer with hands.
At least in soccer the ball is still loose enough that a tackler has some chance of getting it.
If we continue to let football be a possession game then we need to bring in a tackle on the man ala Aussie Rules or dare I say rubby ::)
Anyway over to Central Council this weekend

This won't be going to 2019 Congress I believe.
CC seeking consensus on whether it should be for all D3/4 Counties or only those that lose in Round 1 or of Qualifiers.

And Leinster told Galway to take a hike when they looked for more €€€.
Then again ground rent on the 2 home round robin games is a lot more than the €0 they were getting beforehand.
As for the Leinster SFC.....sadly it's become pointless other than deciding what team enter what Qualifier Round.

Jasus I'd expect a Tipp man to have some sense of humour :-\
Just light hearted comments on one of the reasons mentioned  for opposing the handpass -that Refs can't count to 3.

Didn't see many negatives for the trial rules in the Hyde last Sunday -except for Hughes getting a few marks as our defence watched on.
But then it was the purer football as practised in Connacht to start with.

Seeing as we think Refs can't count handpasses and already have proved they can't count steps let's make it easy for them.
Allow unlimited running with the ball, allow straightforward throwing with no limits.
Sure we'd have great craic.
All you'd need then is an oval ball and allow Joe Sheridan "goals".
Then the Ref could become simply a score keeper and the Ulster crowd would get their wish to have kicking eradicated from the game.

Better put one of these in for some :D

Another Ulster noballer ;D

They're fck obsessed with the Dublin 4 stuff.
Sports news every evening - They introduce a soccer item by saying Soccer..then whatever.
They introduce GAA items by saying Gaelic games and then whatever.
But with Rugby it's just Peter somebody will miss the Europenn game v....

Thank God for that.

One positive change I'd like to see is a traditional Irish split in the GAA. Let the Ulster teams who favour the current set up carry on as they are, giving primacy to tactical massed defence, running with the ball through "blankets", passing through the hands, further development of the game into a sort of basketball/rugby hybrid, coming up with new ways to spoil the spectacle etc etc and let the more naive, purist counties from Connacht , Munster and Leinster get on with developing their game back into something it should resemble i.e. FOOTball 😜
Hear hear!!!
Wonderful game of Connacht football in the Hyde yesterday.
The Ulster stuff could be called "NO!ball"😁

Agree with ringfort and Ballagh.
Positive sort of experience yesterday - except we have no midfield.

What are they going to go back to the EU with?
They spent nearly 2 years negotiating a deal and now won't keep the deal!

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

Suppose yez never got a single euro from the EU? Who else pays for everything down there?
Big difference between loans repayable with interest and an annual handout ;)
