Throw in changed to 3pm?
Shouldn't be on at all, one of the most important dates in irish history and the powers that be in the gaa put on league fixtures.

Are you talking about Easter Monday 24 April 1916? Sunday is 27 March 2016.

What a joke. A nod and a wink gets a clear strike downgraded. It's the GAA authorities which are bringing the association into disrepute. The committees involved need to publish their reasons otherwise the current stench of corruption which lingers over this won't clear.

So you think the Senior Club Championship should be postponed (again) because of the County Minor team extended summer?

Don't think the vast majority of club footballers would agree with you.

Of course not. Jesus.

At the same time no way should the senior football championship be delayed because of the minors All Ireland exploits, I know not all will agree.

I know A few swa men that would disagree.. Have to say that i agree with them.  Club football is all about championship,  so to ask a bunch of players who have trained all year to play the biggest game of their year to date without 3 key players is unfair. Its just another slap in the teeth for that normal club footballer.

I don't think anyone has ever suggested they don't play in the senior championship.

Does it really matter who starts agianst down,Derry simply will not bet them,have a very poor squad to choose from and far too many bad players on their panel,it's a dark time for Derry,has been for a while,just have to stop knobs on here going on bout who starts ana who is going to be a game changer,Derry are not good enough for top tier football so stop going on bout ulster and crap like that,winning 1 or 2 games is hardly something to be on here crowing about...

it's like sliding down an ice slope and you don't know what is coming next reading that...almost kinda fun! keeper' lit.

The association isn't in crisis but the GAA don't help themselves here.

The event Karl Lacey said that stuff at was the launch of the Kellogg's Cul Camps. He will more than likely have been paid a four figure sum for that by the GAA who have a duty to promote their sponsor.

If a player does a couple of those a month, then who needs to work for the summer ?

It's catch 22. The GAA have full time people whose job it is to promote the association and they need players to do that so they pay a select few of them from time to time. That gives lads an insight into what it would be like to be full time and make money from endorsements. It's nothing new really but it's more frequent and professional now with the GPA influence.

Make no mistake, the day of counties organising 'work' schedules for their intercounty squads and training professionally is already here. When there is such large amounts of money going to big counties in sponsorship, it's inevitable.

bye scallybag. it wasn't even remotely entertaining to be honest and DYJL just finished you. Anyone who doesn't know who the best young joiner in Derry is isn't worth a fck.

the u21 grade at club level is nothing but an irritation in most counties. in ulster we compound it by playing a provincial club competition so lads can be asked to play or train for club u21, county u21, senior and sigerson all at the one time.

....and we'll not even go near the effects the grade has on the dual player!

at county the u21 grades prevents club leagues starting sooner

look what is happening on the tyrone thread at present for evidence.

The Under 21 Championship is one of the best championships there is for quality of football and development of players. Why should we abandon it?

lads train 3-4 months for maybe one game which is played midweek and they have to travel for 2-3 hours to get there which requires a half day from college or work. I don't see the development opportunities there. far better imo that the best 12-13 most promising lads are brought within an enlarged senior panel and the rest play with unis and/or pre season with clubs.

the sigerson is now a complete farce with incentives offered right, left and centre to players to move to an institution or stay in one. and the games are watched by about 350 people, most of whom are students. it could be a real development competition if senior county panelists weren't involved. asking players to peak for sigerson and then senior championship is total and utter lunacy. Niall Moyna has spoken on this previously (

remove pre season intercounty competitions (mckenna, fbd etc.)
no senior county panelists to play sigerson
remove county u21 competition

no stress, no worry, no need for big old report.

Some manager will do it yet. I don't think that's enforceable at all.

Not allowed do that sheamy, thankfully!!

ah balls. How so? Time to dig out me official guide.

(i) The Referee shall toss a coin for choice of
ends in the presence of the team captains.
This procedure shall be repeated for Extra
Time, where played.
(ii) Two Players from each team shall stand one
behind the other on their own defensive side
of the halfway line, and shall face the referee,
for the throw in.
 The other Players, shall be in their respective
positions behind the 45m line (Football) or
65m line (Hurling).

Surely 'in their respective positions' is open to interpretation?  :D

Is there another rule preventing it?

You saw last year's All-Ireland Final Zulu? Let's just say Donegal weren't the only team to retreat en masse.

Ah, but they were only reacting! That doesn't count ;)
