Shamamateurism or hypocrisy, call it what you will,nobody wants to be the one to face it square on. Sweep it below the carpet in our time honoured fashion.

So what is your point? Should players and managers get paid? Should no one get paid or just the players?

I'm not sure where the money is coming from. If the pitches are under used and sold meaning pitch maintenance money is saved, will that be enough to pay players, managers, kit men trainers, chairmen, lotto ticket sellers, bar staff!!!!!!!

No hurry with that Bushwhacker, I appreciate you have to consult the book keeper. (Oh, don't inlcude any subsidies you may have made to ex (or current) professional soccer players.


In the meantime can you tell me which clubs you would condemn to history by closing down their pitches?

I'll take the hook out and throw you back now ;D
No I'm not suggesting that but its rare to find anything without flaws in life and that includes the GAA. Sorry fella what you are suggesting will not help anything.
Can't understand why your so anti GAA atm?

Not anti GAA, just anti hypocrisy...understand that?...Last Man.

Interesting....... one word ...Amalgamation, it has worked elsewhere.Some places are struggling to field a team, a pity, but it's not going to get any better.

If you want to consult me at any time about problems within the GAA, feel free. I'll be away for a couple of weeks,but will do my best to help you when I get back.

Change the thread title then, it's very confusing. What 'clubs' in Antrim do you know pay their managers

Buswhacker- Hypocrisy????? Don't worry I will come to that.

Ok, so you part answered one question, amalgamation. Enlighten us please, which teams,


What about the ball park figure for your all Ireland campaign, you seem to be a bit shy on that one. Why is this?

Give you all the benefit of my expertise when I return.
Not privy to " ball park figures", whatever that is, sounds vaguely Americanised.
Amalgamation ....obvious,even to me.
Hypocrisy....obvious to everyone,except those who will not see or don't want to see. End of story.

Its alright fella I wouldn't be consulting yourself, you are only bouncing tabloid headlines. You need to channel this pent up energy in more productive ways.

Buswhacker any debate with you involved in it just moves to you spouting utter nonsense and ruining it. Had the potential to be interesting to - pity.
