People saying that the vote at the weekend is the worst in GAA history. The worst vote was the 90% rejection of the CPA motion for more voting transparency.

How do you even justify that? Disgrace

Everyone agrees reform is needed, there is just too much of a gulf between the elite and the also rans. But the horse has really bolted on that and Dublin, Kerry, Mayo and Tyrone are miles ahead both on an off the pitch. I cant understand why, with the think tanks that the GAA instigates at HQ, a better motion than plan B couldnt have been put together.

He does have a point.  There’s no point clubs/players/members being asked about motions, or taking a vote, if county delegates vote the opposite  way at Congress.

I mean how can the delegates justify voting against transparent voting? Thats a disgrace.

Because they can do what they like and sod the County Boards, Clubs, members, etc etc .
They want to keep it that way.

If the County Boards, Clubs and Members really cared that much about it would they not hold their delegates to account for it? Or just gas them altogether? At 90%, you could just get rid of them all.

I reckon that they just don’t care that much.

Disappointing but not surprised at weekends events. When you have people who devised the plans speaking against them, you know what you up against.

And as for some of the amendments doing the rounds, shocking.

Starting point seems to be to get as many teams as possible to the knockout rounds especially the top teams. Hybrid competitions where finish in one competition will effect the positions of another competition - this dilutes the competition in question further e.g Tyrone, Dublin, Kerry and Mayo win their provincial and are guaranteed knock out spots. The Div 1 league then becomes farcical as the sole aim of these teams will be avoid been in bottom 2 and peak at later stages to be ready for championship.

Having a 1A and 1B, we are just not affect them balance again and having teams of mixed level playing against each other.

Buzzword at weekend was we all want change but only change that suits ourselves.

But problem is nobody knows how they voted !

As I say, if it is 90% of them, I’d treat it as 100%. You might lose 10% decent ones but worth it to weed out 90% arseholes.

Where do you find out who can vote at congress?

I have seen graphics of the various counties and the likes but ex presidents and Central Council seem to have quite a bit of sway, but can't put a figure on it.

I think the CC had 52 votes in the recent Congress.
There's 1 delegate from each County in Ireland and possibly from each GAA County in Britain.
1 GPA rep, 4 Provincial Council reps, Uachtarán too I presume.
Schools, 3rd level.....

down had three votes IIRC, other larger counties like Cork or Dublin get five so on and so forth.

Not sure why the central council need so many.
