Down away is not ideal but looking at the draw we should be there or there about come end of league for promotion. You would be hopeful that the team can kick on again next year.

Sligo away going to replace the famous London trip?

No reason why we can't target promotion. Hopefully Sugrue can add a few players from the club championship

Lots of local derbies, 6 Leinster teams in the division. Would love if Laois could get back to back promotions.

I think promotion will be difficult for Laois. The opener against Offaly, under their new manager, is going to be tough for a start.

Post by: Junior Ex Laoistalk on September 07, 2018, 04:10:48 PM
I think the Down, Longford and Westmeath games will be the hardest to win and we have two of those at home.

Sligo away will not be easy and Carlow will come looking for some sort of revenge for last year but I think we are probably the strongest team in the group and should be pushing hard for promotion..
Title: Re: 2019 Allianz Football League Division 3.
Post by: Tony on September 07, 2018, 05:31:20 PM
It'll be a very competitive League, there wont be much in terms of quality difference between 2nd and 6th. The aim should be for promotion but it wont be a disaster if we stay up in Div 3. Sugrue made leaps and bounds progress in 2018 so it'll be very interesting to see what we can do next year. Would love to see a lot of new faces, as well as the likes of Healy, Merideth and Keogh back to strenghten our backline options. It'll be great to see Sean Moore involved, if he's suitable next year. In fairness, he was quite slight but he has bulked up somewhat. 4 or 5 teams can realistically get promotion; Carlow, Down, Laois are probably the 3 strongest teams on paper but it'll certainly be tight. The difference will be in the preparation this winter.

Load of shite in fairness. That a central body can tell you when it's ok to train. Load of shite. That they can place a ban on some counties when everyone is at it. Load of shite. That they somehow differentiate between training as a group and training as an individual. Another load of shite. The GAA heads live in a fantasy world. The modern GAA player can't afford to take time off properly if he wants to retain a certain level of fitness. They want the GAA and its players to be the best that they can be and pride themselves on the fact that this is voluntary and for the love of the sport. Then they go placing bans on lads who want to make themselves more competitive. I'd give the opposing team a walkover and throw the whole thing into chaos. Pure and utter shite

The Dubs went on an historical outing. Be clear now, it was an historical outing. Philly McMahon will bring out a book about the trip any day now, explaining about how it affected him deeply, almost as deeply as his brothers heroin addiction. Did you know Phillys brother was an addict? You may not have, he doesn't like to talk about it all that much. But yea, his brother died from drug addiction. True story. Not many people know about it.

Agree 100% about this unfair punishment. a small number of counties are being punished while there were numerous counties who had training camps. For Dublin to be declared innocent is hard to take.

I'm sure this has nothing whatsoever to do with the money that the GAA would lose if Dublin lost a home game.

High Fielder is right. It's a load of shite. Not only is it a kick in the hole for the players, but it's a kick in the hole for the supporters who will be out of pocket as a result.

If the GAA treated everyone equally, it would be easier to take (even though it is still a load of shite). The treatment of the Laois' and Wexfords of this world is totally out of order. They should fight this to the very end, preferably all 4 counties joning together to do so.

Mocking a family that lost a son to heroin addiction?.

mocking a player that spends 2 days of the week free of charge,helping prisoners in mountjoy to break the cycle of incarceration,who works with young people at risk of drugs and gangs?.

I like philly he's  an absolute  thug on the field but comes across  as a decent  fella.....  to mock him like  that is wrong.  Walk a day in his shoes  and you'd see what devastation heroin addiction causes.  If it was a chap from your local village would you be as quick to mock him or would  you  do it to his face.......  Doubt it very  much !!!
With  regards to the punishment look who was banned,  small counties  in the lower leagues yet the dubs can do what they like. Not a word on mainstream  media but if it was a big team it would be all over the papers, news and online news sites......  Laois doesn't  matter in the greater scheme of things

The GAA has long ago stopped treating counties equally or fairly. But in the past  decade the focus is on the top 8 teams both by Croker and the media. Competition structures favour the super powers. Its going to get worse with a B Championship. Wont work long term.

Post by: High Fielder on November 08, 2018, 11:17:47 PM
It's time for our CB to stand up for the county; the players in particular. The GAA have fucked us about in the last few years and clearly don't give a fiddlers about us. They are a seriously deluded bunch who have no regard for the effort being made in Laois or elsewhere. They need to be told to f**k off and stop putting barriers in our way. It's hard enough getting lads to play and supporters to pay in an era when quite frankly, there is little to entice counties like Laois. A real sickener.
Title: Re: 2019 Allianz Football League Division 3.
Post by: GAA-SMART on November 09, 2018, 01:44:34 PM
The problem is here- the GAA can't take a Dublin home game away because it shines a very public light on the fact Dublin own Croke Park and they do not want that debate. The GAA cant tell Dublin they loose a game in Parnell Park because they will look like fools and they cant take a Croke Park game because Dublin will say well thats not our Home Ground. This is the result of what you get when you allow a county dow hat they want, when they want and give them millions in the process.
Title: Re: 2019 Allianz Football League Division 3.
Post by: Giovanni on November 09, 2018, 04:15:18 PM
Is there really a debate about whether or not Croke Park is Dublin's home ground? They play their home fixtures there and if they were to be treated like everyone else, they'd have to play in a neutral venue. I don't know - maybe it's because it's an amateur association that money is so important in their decision-making but they really are losing the public with this carry on I think.

If for example they fixed the carlow game for newbridge or the westmeath game for o connor park ..

Id be inclined for sugrue to make a Portlaoise or nowhere stance and put the gaa underpressure thus getting the whole county behind him and getting the Laois people's gander up so to speak it would only work wonders for the spirit he has already created within  the camp.and the support who are starting to come back out in numbers ..

f**k the Gaa

I don't understand this at all.

Either way, they are not available to their clubs. This just seems completely ridiculous to me.

The difference is Dublin have a very powerful county board and all the money in the world to afford lawyers if they need to.

Thanks for this and apologies for being slow on the uptake! Don might be right but if he is, itís really very disappointing. Conlethís Park wonít pay for itself either but that didnít stop Kildare making their point (and getting a lot of support for it). If it was really the case in Laois, youíd wonder why they bothered to appeal at all?

It's all wrong but it's not a disaster. Our first home game was to be against Carlow   
Round 2
Saturday 2 February
(7.0): Laois v Carlow


So what if we have to go to Carlow to play them, we usually beat them down there and they have some happy memories of victory's in O'Moore Park, not against us but victory's all the same which makes O'Moore Park a good place for them.

Firstly, I donít think itís established that itís the Carlow game that we lose and secondly the game is supposed to be held in a neutral venue - not in their home ground.

In any case, the issue for me is more about the unequal application of this (ridiculous) rule to different counties. How anyone can consider that to be ďgrandĒ is beyond me.
Title: Re: 2019 Allianz Football League Division 3.
Post by: GAA-SMART on November 15, 2018, 08:54:39 AM
Yeah Carlow shouldnt get home advantage because we broke a rule. Sure that would be unfair on every team in the competition. The rule itself is a grand rule if its enforced fairly which clearly it is not. The point above on Dublin Lawyers is relevent. Dublin have top guys working full time for them who can put the time and resources into working with lawyers and getting information together where we simply do not have that resource. The sad thing here is that again Dublin get away scott free while we are punished. I dont care where we play Carlow- can play them in the scottish highlands, if we are good enough we will win. O Moore park is hardly a fortress these times.

Really don't understand how all the other counties, who are pumping hundreds of thousands into the preparation of their teams, are accepting this.

On the question of the removal of our home game, there is also an issue for all of the other teams in the Division. Only one team in the Division (the one who avoids having to travel to Portlaoise) will have obtained an advantage that the other teams have not been given. How can that be fair on all the other teams either. The whole thing is a total joke.

They want the odd soft touch to roll over and have their belly tickled. It's sad to say but Don is right and it's stuff like the COE funding that makes us the teacher's pet. There are of course other behind the scenes political maneuverings that make anything that John Sugrue has to say irrelevant. It's sad to say and I don't like admitting it because I'm proud of the man and how he conducts himself. But in truth, he'd have been better off wring to Santa. It would have got more of a hearing at least.

The politics of county boards and GAA Councils would make Brexit look like a tea party. The COE is a small cog in the wheel. The loss of home advantage another small cog. You just wouldn't know and probably wouldn't want to the full mechanics. Best just to suck it up and get on with it. This wheel is not for reinventing.

I saw from the Programmes in the last few months that they were looking for sponsors to support the CoE. I had intended to give them something this Xmas. I think I'll give it to the local soccer club instead. John Delaney seems like a paragon of virtue compared to this shit.

I would never discourage anyone from giving towards our development. But you could argue, and you'd have a point, that taking away home games from our own supporters does nothing to develop football in the county. At the end of the day, lads were showing commitment to Laois, and because of a jumped up rule from an equally jumped up administration, we have been penalised. I don't understand it, and in many ways it does little for my interest in the game. The GAA should never discourage a county like Laois, and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so.
