So u thinK Croke who fork out  70% of the gaelfast moneY make their decisions after reading discussions boards ... wise up! too many yes men on this board  :)

What are you on about?

If you want to sit behind a computer screen and not name yourself and have a go at people, then dive in, no one is stopping you.
tut tut usual reply when Have no argument - Most people remain anonYmous on these boards and thats how they are run. So wat gives any of us confidence Co board can sort this out?
why dontu find a discussioN board where u have give your name and photo?

Terry spoke very well and shows how hard Gaelfast is going to be...

The difficulty of replacing PD was highlighted very well by Terry, and to think people were questioning his credibility

Terry also mentioned that Gaelfast is actually only going 8 months full pelt once all the appointments were in place..

The clock is ticking so hopefully there is someone on board soon.
interviewer didnít Ask why the 2 left just weeks aparT. Not too much to Asj for Antrim Gaels to know whatís going on .m

Both lads are very approachable, next time you bump into them Iím sure theyíll let you know
very helpful thankS

As you may have seen I'm not a fan of paying coaches either but acknowledge that mileage and valid expenses go with the territory these days.
I understand that managing 30 adults would be difficult but so are positions such as club Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary.

I have yet to see a high profile retired 'outside' player come to my club for a 3 year stint and £10K on the side. Clubs can always manage to get through the tough times with their own good members.
If as a association we ignore payments that drain club funds then as I have said we will be paying for outside minor managers and maybe even club committees in the near future and further hinder clubs financial position.
When people start to get financial reward for performance then they start to put themselves first at the expense of the organisation they are working for.

Finally other posters who contribute to this board may disagee  with my perspectives but sometimes having conservative, old-fashioned and nostalgic views are a safeguard against the rapid change in GAA ethics that have stood us well to date.

My own club couldnít get a manager internally a few years ago, we went outside. What was our alternative? Not enter the leagues?
If there Wasnt option of going outside? a way would be found and all the coacheS who are on circuit COuld go back to their vlubs and be available

reasonable expenses is no big issuE for me.
Ill ask u again Rich clubS paying big money for coaches etc is fair? when not every Club has money to do it
YouU are a tad paranoid

Paranoid?

Listen if itís not in the rules itís wrong, thereís ifs buts or maybes, what happens happens, itís up to Croke Park to stamp down on it..

By the same token expenses should be paid to all volunteers, no one should be out of pocket
Let's cut to chase - u think it ok example for a Sean kelly or ciaran mcgourty to be paid by St Johns to manage St Johns against st galls and beat st galls? when they learnt all they know at st galls

so are  youse boys saying make manager payments part of the rules so its not cheating and secretive? At least that with some caps on the amounts paid and proper penalties for breaking trules would be better than the murky stuff we have now. still have My doubts it can be afforded in Long run

Whoís saying that?

If Iíve asked ( say Iím a manager) someone to travel 60 miles to coach or do strength conditioning, something Iím not skilled at I shouldnít pay him for coming up the road?

Very bizarre, and another thing if the players of an outside person pays for it then whatís the issue?
The issue is that u Just cant have no rules about money or the richest just buy the championship with highly Paid coaches, managrs backrom teams, etc etc  - so you Want no rules on money???????? would like to ref a Match with no rules??????
