I know that I may be attacked, but f**k me, could they not be original with a name, like St (insert local saint here), instead of Na Fianna X2.

Croí na hÉireann is completely right about the poor spectacle which county football regularly offers. The restriction on hand passes was probably dropped too soon although it may not have ultimately proved practical.  The next option may well be keeping three men in the opposition half, as the evidence over dropping attendances is truly alarming.

Saturday night in Newry was a fairly typical offering, although it did get exciting in the closing stages when the contest was up for grabs. Westmeath should have been well clear at the break but used their extra player poorly and Tally's game management was exemplary in the second half.

 While Down are in a reasonable position in a very tight division, we could just as easily have zero points at this stage.  There are six sides in contention for promotion and it is likely to go to the wire.
Whereas arguably, we should have 6, we only have one.🤬🤬🤬
Bottled it v Westmeath
“          “ v Louth
Should’ve won v Longford, by all accounts.

Some people, believe it or not, are capable of looking past the fact that McDonnell represents a supposedly nationalist party and voting with their conscience.

He is a thoroughly dislikeable f**ker altogether with plenty of skeletons in his closet. Voting for him just to keep out the DUP would have been reprehensible.

Please tell us more of his skeletons.

I’ll be the first to admit that I know feck all about NFL, but I reckon that the Rams will win 32-28.

Can I be the first to agree?  :D

I was closest to the score last year!😉

I fell asleep anyway at the start of the third quarter. Oh well.

Still the best footballer in Offaly by some distance.

Possibly - but is he fit and/or not over the hill?
Was struggling with an injury, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the 26 on Sunday.

Just wondering has anyone seen or, more to the point read this?

https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/sport/columnists/the-founding-principle-of-the-gaa-has-been-increasingly-neglected-899984.html

I know we see on Twitter the talk of Croke Park 'suits' and those same suits tend to be heavily involved locally, or have given years of volunteer service to the GAA as they will often point out...BUT then how can they stand over some of the moves like the ticket increase.
Saying it is for the benefit of the grounds and so on, when clubs face levies anyway for projects. Let the extra few quid stay in the membership's pockets and they will be the ones looking after the clubs a lot of the time anyway.
In every club the same few are tapped up all the time, so I don't see the need to raise any prices, in fact there should have been a freeze. The accounts are in rude health centrally after all.

The prices had not gone up since 2011, so there was a freeze which in my opinion had lasted long enough.

I don't know where the big sense of entitlement comes from. People seem to expect GAA ticket prices to be frozen in time and exempt from inflation. That's assuming they're willing to get off their couches and go to the match rather than whinging about not being able to watch every single game on TV free of charge.

'Do people want the GAA to give them money at the gate?' - Dick Clerkin defends hike in ticket prices
If you listen to Rouse talking on Off The Ball, he was said that there wasn’t a price review since 2011. The price of tickets had changed in that time.
