GAA Discussion / Re: Rossies v Tyrone Hyde Park 13th July 5pm.

What are Roscommon going to do? Play on Tyrone's terms like Kildare and Cavan or come up with something different. Those 2 teams had no idea how to cope with the defensive shield or try and pull Tyrone out of position. I expect that Cunningham will not be so stupid though it is still Roscommon and they had no idea at this stage last year!

If Brian McGuigan is correct that would be great. Only way to get change is if there is a player revolt.

Only 47% turnout at a time when nationalists are talking about a border poll, unionists about protecting the union and the threats or opportunities presented by brexit depending on your view.
Do people not care?

Watching the debates we all have to vote 1 2 3 in whatever order you want sf sdlp and alliance.
Unionists will ruin the economy to be part of a union that doesn't want them.

All the GAA care about are the elite (I hate that word) players and money and once again Congress showed this. The headline was the Dublin 2 home fixtures but hidden away were:
under 20s can now play senior and under 20 championship - these "elite" players will never be seen at the club but who cares about that
under17s cannot play club senior/reserve football - this is to protect the elite under17s from burn out but to hell with the majority who never get enough games and the small club who might need these players

Meanwhile all club players are looking forward to 4/5 games in April and then nothing to July/August while the elite 2% make the GAA loads of money.

Dinny that may be the case sometimes but most of the time this is the scenario:
Player trains with school team before club training
Player trains with university before club training
Player trains with county u20s before club training
Player trains with county seniors before club training
This is ALMOST ALWAYS the case until these teams are knocked out or win their competition. All the club does is ask them to show their face the odd time and hopefully be able to play in league games (not challenge matches or cup games).
The schools/universities does not last long and doesn't interfere too much with club season so that can be tolerated while the seniors has moved on for a good while now and it is taken for granted now that the club wont see these men. And while the national league is in full swing that is acceptable too as the club season hasn't started.
BUT what McEntee's article is about is the under20s. They don't have a game until May but these lads are not allowed to train with their clubs. Most clubs have challenge games coming up and important league games that should take priority over under20 training. Would you not agree?

Dinny in my experience the only people who look after these players are the clubs. The others take their full pound of flesh and never ask after their welfare.

Any suggestions for a Summer holiday at home or in Europe for wife and 2 kids under 3? Anyone been somewhere they would recommend or is it just best to stay at home?

Club boi as far as I am aware at the minute the following clubs are managed by clubmen  in division one: errigle Carmen dromore donaghmore galbally clonoe ardboe coalisland trillick. Dromore galbally clonoe and coalisland had outside managers at start of the year but at varying stages this changed with dromore the last.

Do any of the GAA top brass see these videos?  Do they have any thoughts? Would they care to share them?
Or are they too worried about ways to make more money?

Was watching the rugby between ulster and connacht and the respect for the referee and the authority of the referee is absolute. It should be what the GAA aspire to. If the diktat came from the top and money spent to educate everyone with proper enforcement and  proper punishment for non compliance this could be achievable. Surely this should be a priority
