Esmarelda and Maroon Manc typify all that is wrong with the GAA - put the elite on a pedestal and feck the rest!
That's a bit harsh, so you honestly expect an u21, forget about that, take any player to risk playing in a club match a week before an All Ireland final. As one poster correctly said that could and probably will be their last and maybe only time to play in game at that level, meanwhile they could play club championship for the next 15 yrs if they wanted.
Its so sad that their CB haven't protected them for the abuse some will heap on them. There clubs should also be very angry with the CB for placing there own players in a situation that the players can't win, just shocking fair from the Dublin CB. An All Ireland u21 final, a once in a life time opportunity.
