GAA Discussion / Re: Would you be in favour of a second tier?
« on: October 19, 2018, 08:04:24 PM »
evening before the final along with the minors could be a good show

That's a good idea , you'd get a lot going to the Sunday game would go along .

Would you fûck.

Some of ye are properly in cloud cuckoo land.

Jeez do you have to be so damn righteous all the time .

All Ireland weekend , you meet up with people on a sat afternoon , grub, drinks , some head out to kilmacud for the sevens . Having a game to go to on the sat evening would definitely appeal to me . It would break up the day/night too

Lads won’t turn up for a minor AI final that’s paid for on their ticket, there’s no chance f them coming up a day early or if they’re already up wasting more of their weekend on football than they’re already.

Second rate football in a second rate completion isn’t going to ever be sellable to casual supporters.

Do you mean the unmitigated eejit who built Achillhenge

If that’s what we’re up against I may as well book the hotel room for Salthill for the Connacht final

Wicklow never gave a shît about football before so it’s no surprise to see that hasn’t changed.

How short are GAA attention spans? Their proposal is almost point for point a ressurection of the absolutely squalid failure that was the Tommy Murphy Cup.

You obviously never set foot in baltinglass or rathnew

Similar to how most of Wicklow haven’t darkened the doors at Aughrim, then.

No more than our own situation -where's the GAA's ethos when lads with money decide who your manager will be?

You should ring them up and tell them you don’t want their money

wooly made a good point about a tier 2 competition in that it has to be their manin goal from the beginning of the year rather than something the are relegated to half way though the year.
If the winners could re enter the sam Maguire at sem final stage or something like it it could be a great incentive or bith dinalist promoted for the following year

HQ are really going to bite for that money-spinning AISF everyone’s been waiting for, Kerry vs. Louth.

General discussion / Re: Job Salary Dispute
« on: October 18, 2018, 11:18:14 PM »
If I were you I'd apply for a job elsewhere in another company, get an offer (that's hopefully better than what you're getting now), hand in your notice, and see if your current employers make a counter-offer.
I think its career suicide to hand in your notice and then accept a counter offer?
Your employers will keep you on, yes, but they'll know you're not happy or loyal and have now just bought themselves some time to find your replacement?
As soon as they do then you're gone, on their terms, not your own...with no job to walk in to

This is a genuinely insane outlook. Getting a better offer elsewhere and the place you’re currently at matching or bettering it is one of the most common tactics in any profession. You just make sure the job you get the offer from is one you’re happy to switch to if a counter offer is not forthcoming. This is business, not playtime.

The idea that someone is easily replaceable is not a valid one for most real professionals. The cost of replacement due to lost productivity usually exceeds the difference in salary many times over. Also there’s a thousand and one employment laws that prevent employers from firing someone in the manner you’re suggesting also.

Businesses don’t give a shït about your feelings and you would be monumentally stupid to worry about their supposed hurt feelings. Get the very best terms you can and remember that your job is just a job and not who you are.

I see Cillian McDaid has been released by Carlton Blues, would be a huge boost for Galway.

http://www.the42.ie/ciaran-byrne-carlton-cillian-mcdaid-afl-4286555-Oct2018/

Big boost alright. Super talent. In an area where Galway need an upgrade as well.

Surprised he's back so soon. He was mad keen to get out there. Seems like it was his decision too.

All a bit odd but brilliant news from a Galway point of view. I've only seen him a handful of times but everytime he really stood out, he appeared to have a great engine on him, is very quick and can kick scores from distance from both feet. If only Corofin could exit the championship early this year so Molloy & Dylan Wall could get a real run at it.

Annaghdown winning would be worse, with 3 important starters there going forward. Wouldn't particularly like to see Mountbellew there either with the two Daly's, while McHugh has proven a handy league player on dead pitches. Both those sides would likely be favorites for Connacht if winning Galway with Castlebar gone so hard not to see a Galway side playing into February. Corofin could almost be the best option, with Silke having plenty of inter county experience and Burke could slot back in at any stage. Would be unfortunate for Molloy and potentially Wall alright, from an intercounty perspective.

Clann na nGael would be well capable of beating the Galway side especially if its not Corofin they face.

Ok, Rambo.

Anthony Rainbow for Roscommon? Is he in charge of Ballyboden? Watched their game on youtube the other day and could have sworn I heard he was in charge of them

Yep in charge of boDen , what years was he with Carlow ? Was with sarsfields(Kildare) for two years .

2013/14 with Carlow. Managed to finished bottom of div 4 with them and conceded 7 goals in the championship to Meath. He was only a selector with sarsfields.

A good fit so.

He’s won as many AIs as James Horan and Cillian O’Connor combined.

His lack of foitball knowledge has long been known.
The fact that he continues to prove it time and time again by his posts......... :-[

Are you having pure salt for lunch or will you be having a side of chips with it?

Sure he has to take some oul job seeing as he failed to land the Ros manager one.
I hear we've landed our new man. ;)

If you keep saying it you’ll eventually be right

Both Ireland teams in a race to the bottom. Both awful.

Cue talk of an all Ireland team. Again.

You operate in very different circles to the people in the south.
