GAA Discussion / Hip Surgery > Long-term Rehabilitation
« on: February 18, 2016, 07:21:22 AM »
According to the former Irish rugby team doctor, Dr. Eanna Falvey, many GAA players are ignoring medical advice and choosing what they think is the fastest way of recovering which is hip surgery, instead of longer-term rehabilitation, so that they can return to the field and play as soon as possible.

"I am not interested in next year, I'm interested in now."

This is the attitude of many players as per Dr. Falvey.


What's your take about this, guys?

It is very much apparent that Kilkenny have dominated Waterford in their past fixtures. But do you guys think Waterford can still redeem their glory later?  ;)

GAA Discussion / GAA Players need to ignore trolls
« on: December 14, 2015, 09:47:48 AM »
Cork hurler Patrick Horgan says that players need to be mentally tough and savvy to survive social media abuse. Hence, ignore trolls and all that.

Actually, social media is a very powerful influencer to everyone. It becomes an avenue to cyberbully players and other known personalities. Aside from players ignoring trolls, we, users of social media, should also be responsible to what we post. They deserve our respect. And through that respect, maybe that will be the cause of the victories of our favourite teams. You know, positive vibes attract good fortune!  ;)

GAA Discussion / Bernard Brogan as Ireland's Captain
« on: October 24, 2015, 07:37:52 PM »
The GAA have confirmed that Dublin's Bernard Brogan will captain the EirGrid Ireland International Rules team in the upcoming series against Australia at Croke Park on 21 November.
The 2015 All-Ireland medal winner and former player of the year has been named by team manager Joe Kernan as the skipper ahead of a wider panel announcement early next month.
Brogan, whose brother Alan has also represented Ireland, replaces Michael Murphy, who led the Ireland challenge in last year's narrow defeat to Australia in Perth and in the home series win the previous year.

Brogan said: "It is both an honour and a privilege to not only represent Ireland, but to captain the national team too.

"As Gaelic footballers, opportunities to play for Ireland and pit our skills against athletes from other nations and codes are few and far between, and next month we will test ourselves against arguably the strongest ever Australian team to come here.

“Not only do they include the best of the AFL in terms of talent but they have experience of this code in their ranks, not least with their management team, whose exploits both in their domestic game and indeed in this code, are proven.

"It’s a challenge we will relish and I look forward to working with Joe and his selectors and all of the lads on the panel to do our best to keep the Cormac McAnallen Cup in Ireland.”

Team manager Joe Kernan added: “I wish Bernard well in what is a coveted role. He is following in the footsteps of many great footballers in accepting the role and it is something he is sure to embrace.

Hurling Discussion / Brian Kerr blames Hurling
« on: October 23, 2015, 09:06:43 PM »
Former Republic of Ireland manager Brian Kerr blames GAA and Hurling for creating Irish football's "mongrel dog" playing sytle.

"Why are they technically better? I think our culture is contaminated by the fact that we have a lot of rugby and a lot of soccer and we've too much Gaelic as well and hurling."

He claims that Irish teams will always struggle to match their European counterparts in the skill stakes because of the the school taught mostly Gaelic and hurling, but not soccer.

"That's had an impact on the style of the game in Ireland and that nobody comes from a culture where it's only and specifically soccer and the influence is we just play it like we should play it."

"We're a bit of a mongrel and we're going through a stage I'd call Netherlands-Lite. We're all playing 4-3-3 at underage and we'll all be members of the non-tackling union in future. It's all nice, nice, nice but jaysus don't put any passion into it."


WHAT DO YOU THINK, GUYS? I'm not posting here to create a fire or any sort of between different Irish sports. But this has to be cleared, that GAA and Hurling shouldn't be blamed for other's fault.

« on: October 09, 2015, 08:41:01 PM »
In an interview, Bernard Brogan claims that he did not expect that he would be nominated for the Footballer of the Year awards.

"Five years after I won one … I probably didn't think I'd be back at that level again."

Will this humility brings him to the victory? What ya guys think?  ;)
