Jaysus I've touched a nerve here. What are ye? Benny's family or something.
My original point still stands. Why would a lad do what he did. It's both baffling and selfish to occupy a place on a panel and not be around for the championship.
You don't seriously expect me to name names do you but yes, i have seen it before: several times in fact.

Using CAPS to shout and roar and telling someone to "f**k off" are hardly good debating techniques. If ye're not able for the internet stay off it.  I've already scaled back on the gear comment and concentrated on my original core point...
He did it because when he went in he may have not been planning on going to America. He did it because the training is good and the set up is admirable. He did it because he wanted to push himself to improve. If there was another player in the county better than him, he'd have been on the panel. He did it because he wanted to contribute and he shouldn't be punished for having a change of heart midway through the season. If the chap wants to go to America before setting into a life behind a desk and bursting his bollocks to play for Laois for the next 10 years, he should have the option to do so.

Benny Carroll master manipulator, successfully mugged Sugrue off for a half zip, polo shirt and gear bag before riding off into the J1 sunset, absolutely beautiful.
And a Gilet.

Yeah I seen it before too, at the U-14 club training. Would you ever cop on, you're still spouting that! Have you ever seen a SENIOR INTER COUNTY PLAYER do 15-20 hours per week since December for a bit of kit? You're the one resurrecting this. So go on and tell us, when did you see any fella give 20 hours per week x 26 = 520 hours since december for a tracksuit and a bag?! WHEN? You're talking some nonsense. You're turning into a joke there lad. Best come off the site for a while.
Dont forget the Gilet

Disappointing but I can't blame him. I'm actually surprised more don't go. Playing for your county is an honour, but playing for nothing in every sense of the word is a waste of time.

There is no solution out there, not tiered championships, tin pot second and third rate cups, none of it can save what is a dying concept. Inter county, at its core, is boring and inequitable. I love Laois. I hope we beat Westmeath etc etc. But no harm done in the overall scheme of things if we don't.

I have no idea why a lad would train all winter, play the league and the leave the panel just before the championship. When was the gear handed out as a matter of interest?
::) New level of stupid. Train your arse off for 4 or 5 months for a few bits of O'Neills...
Those half zips and gilets are delish man.

Buff Egan has a good bit of scoring coverage from today's match on Snapchat.
I don't have Snapchat but it might be time to sign up for it. Thanks, G@@!
Do it quick, stories only last 24 hours. Buff is iconic.

Can't help but be dismayed by the truly dismal standard of our league's this year, in particular this one. Stradbally and Joseph's between them provide 2 players to the county set-up and yet anytime I've seen them play this year both sides have been inexcusably poor. Conceding 7 to Ballylinan - is that a piss take or what? 6 to Emo? I have great respect for Stradbally as a club but Jesus what on earth is going on there?

On the other hand Courtwood are a breath of fresh air. They've seemingly overtaken more established clubs with literally 1 crop of young talent. They've a much stronger nucleus than the likes of the Arles clubs, Stradbally, Joes, Cretty, Ballyfin, The Heath and possibly Emo and Ballylinan.They won't just survive comfortably they are at worst quarter final standard in this year's championship despite arguably, in my opinion, being short about 4 or 5 players to get to within maybe 7 points of Portlaoise.
is this Div 1B your talking about young man.. as you probably know the Joe's are also in Div IA although results in both for them are poor. They must have a bigger pool of players then court wood to be able to field in both Div 1A ,& 1B.. court wood are doing well and well done to them but leagues and senior championship are miles apart
..especially the the difference between 1A and 1 B
How many Joes players are fielding with both the 1A and 1B teams?

I'm hearing it was a high scoring encounter with Laois loosing by 4 ??
I read online somewhere that they were involved in a high scoring encounter and Laois lost by 4.

It needs a volunteer to step up and take it on. Someone from the communications sub committee or an external person to go in there and just run it unilaterally. Given the current situation with regards our County Secretary, and I wish him all the best with his current fight, the office is no doubt under pressure so I'd go easy on them lads.

I see they're playing this weekend, and have been given a brand spanking new set of geansai's by Laois GAA, who also supplied them with footballs as well. I presume the jerseys wont be tight fit!

Isn't it strange - we know that if the lads play to their potential they could beat Westmeath and give Meath a right rattle, maybe getting to Leinster Final again.
But then you face the all powerful Dubs - what should we wish for ?
Facing Dublin. Always.

Heh.

Anyway, easy enough win for the minors today - 2-21 to 0-7. Think Westmeath only got one or two from play? A couple of nice prospects in the half-forward line, notably Dan Delaney, and Tadhg Cuddy in midfield, too. At times, lads were inclined to take too much out of the ball, but hopefully they'll build confidence in this tier, and drive on from there.
Job done? Confidence boosting for players and management. Seems a decent spine.

Lost to eventual All-Ireland finalists by five points.
By the way, ye can have Delaney back anytime ye want. The ****.

What did he do now?!
Essentially told Stephen Loughnane that he wasnít wanted for Shinrone. He transferred to Loughrea and is now with the Galway u20s I believe, after having been with the Offaly u20s at the start of the year. Told Shinrone players not to play with Offaly. Also wouldnít let any of the other Offaly u20s from Shinrone train with Offaly.
As you can see, thatís worked out very well. 😂😂😂
Imagine letting a blow in from Laois run your club like that, I thought Offaly men had a bit more to them than that.
I couldnít care less about Shinrone. Itís the county thatís suffering as a result, with young Loughnane, a fine keeper playing for Loughrea. Iím far from being from Shinrone, I assure you.
Thatís before we come to the Ďsledging Ď. And itís not calling someone a bollox, itís much, much worse.
Methinks the Lady doth protest too much
