I do undeRstand its easier to get less teams out I Just think all GAA energies should be getting used on plans to get the kids on pitches again and not on small number of adults by comparison - Lenny was just me me me - not like him actually

First priority is getting the kids back out before the adults

Good To see GAA president on sunday Game last night commit to not leaving the 6 counties out if the law is different to the 26 counties about playing sport - I'd say there are plenty who would sell us out to get a championShip played.

He seemed to be saying National League would not be finished which is hard on us

i look at Creggan to show why it doesnt work. For the record ive nothing against Creggan club, in fact they have made good strides to promote all 3 codes within themselves.

But, and there's always a but, they have thrown money (or an outside source has - i cant obviously confirm this) on outside men to come in and take their senior football team to try and bring success. It hasnt other than a few league titles which count for nothing imo.

For me personally i see that as an utter waste of time and money, time and money that would of been better vested into coaching and improving  the existing structures within the club itself. Obviously there will be people who disagree and thing its a good idea and that the right person wasnt there within the club to take the job on but ive yet to see a manager win a football or hurling championship for a club.

Its the lads and girls who have come through the underage set up with the help of coaches and managers that got them to that point. those people helped them get there and its those people you invest in so that they dont feel like its a waste of time or they are unappreciated for doing it all for free.

I was approached a few seasons back to take a senior camogie team in Derry. It was paid work but i turned it down to take on something else in my club for free at underage. Its your own club, its what your brought up supporting and playing for and money cant compare to it.
Agree with your take on this and Now Creggan are in the habit of doing it its then hard to stop. Great club Naomh Eanna is in many ways, they Too seem to making same mistake and will find hard to turn back to their own having sent the message out that their coaches arent up to scratch. Like you have to back an inexperienced player and be Patient you should do the same with a manager

In antrim football there aren't really that many clubs with these kind of boys though. There are only a handful of clubs with that kind of money.

Itís generally not clubs that pay it though, usually a well off clubman

What if the players are contributing to the 'fees' themselves
then the richest teams are then trying to buy success to Follow your Logic - more money, better coach = success - Nonsense...............Slaughtneil

Síneil? Are you being serious?
bad example! Lockdown losing it

Senior teams expect to have someone leading a team that knows what they are doing, well organised, tactical, understanding of physical fitness. A person who they respect and look to for inspiration. Some clubs have to look outside their structures in order to achieve that goal.
Paid doesn't mean good and not paid mean bad - the most successful team in recent History is St Galls had all their own lads in and made their success all the better

It was you MR2 who said the committee would look after the team! They lead the Process of encouraging and cajoling people in club to come together and make a management team, Sometimes people lack confidence to put themselves and then be a Success. If you run to the money men this Will never happen

does anyone think if there were no paid managers Team would fold?

No, if no one is willing to take the team within the club the committee will look after it or one of the players
Exactly - clubs, with no money to pay out, always find a way. That's Why I think the argument that we had noBody is a red herring - they are looking a short Cut to success, tell themselves thry have no-one, and do long term damage
