GAA Discussion / Re: Gaaboard alternative Allstars
« on: Today at 04:55:12 PM »
Don't spill ye're POTYS whatever ye do.
The real All Stars are the lads who go through all the pain and training to play for lower Division teams in front of a few hundred at NFL games and know they'll be lucky to get more than 2 Championship games.
No matter what they do they're efforts are long forgotten when All Stars and Potty time cones around.
Next year they'll be all kicked into the Sunset by the end of May while the big lads get 3 extra rounds of high profile games against each other.
Now if  D4, D3 and D2 All Stars were also awarded at the same function and let the poor relations also have a free night out....

Indeed Elphinman.
Wouldn't it be great to see the best 30 footballers in Ros on our panel come 1st January.
Will any of Dublin's senior citizens retire?

If the GAA want more big Counties being competitive with Dublin then money needs to go into Belfast/Antrim, Louth,Wicklow and dare we say Kildare and Meath.
Those 5 should be around the same standard as Mayowestros and Donegal/Tyrone based on population figures. In all probability they have higher percentages of under 25s.
Cork occasionally and Kerry usually will also compete for AIs.
As for the rest of us in the little Counties.......occasional appearances in Super 8s will be our lot with the odd Connacht or Ulster title thrown in.
Sadly.

Can you really mention Tyrone on the same breath as the other 3 any more?

The O'Connor captured it soon after and held it to the mid 16th Century.
Rushing in building the odd castle and getting feecked out again for 500 years.
There's a biteen of hurley stuff in mid and South Ros as a result of those temporary incursions but most of us held our own till 1605 or so.

Seaf, hurley is mainly played in Norman Counties.
We weren't occupied till 1605 so never got immersed in the oul iomáint.

one other big point in the funding debate, is that John Costello prepared the blue prints, put the business case together etc to show how the money was to be spent,
Most Counties can't afford to hire chaps with his expertise.
Time for the Central GAA to pay full time Secretary/Administrator for all the small Counties perhaps. Such people would help Co Boards to develop their own blueprints and also oversee the use of fairly allocated €€€€s to ensure they weren't blown on Mercenary Senior IC managers etc.

Throwing a hurl is manly and hurling refs would be castigated if they did anything about it.

39k registered players in a population of 1,300,000 - about 3%. Sligo has approx 5k in a population of circa 60,000 - about 8.3%.

Ros has 1,600 more than Sligo I see.
Populations are Ros 64,544. Sligo 65,535.
Feckin soccer.....

Sounds like the Dublin media campaign is swinging into action to
1 get Keegan and
2 switch attention away from O'Gara.

Yeah right.
Haiti keep winning World Cups????

Other way around, out of the top 10 most populated countries in the world, 1 of them has won a world cup. Just a small example, im sure there is better comparisons out there.

China and India didn't do soccer much.
 After all Antrim is the second biggest population County but haven't done anything in football since around 1910.
For one very good reason.

Only Galway Mayowestros and Tyrone as well as Dublin have won U21s this decade.
Most Counties can't afford to have 45 on a panel over the Winter.

I bet the Mayo Co Board won't be apologising to Rock unlike our crowd.
How can you stop a team playing keep ball?
Can't pass the ball backwards?
