Why is the GAA held to such different standard to other gaes just saw highlight from munsters brawl last weekend . 2 massive punch up not a peep from anywhere.
is it tat thuggery is so ingrained in Rigby that no one even notices it any more?

Any member's of the Munster management chin a player on the blind side? Any Munster players jump the fence?
List the last few massive punch ups in Rugby you've seen prior to last weekend.  Do rugby players / management usually take their punishment and move on?
why wouldn't they no one was suspended its not like anyone put his foot over the offside line ,


heres a selection of the jolly japes you rugger folk get up to

Much to respond to there Iceman.

No, I wouldn't want my family or myself living in a middle eastern society. It has nothing to do with Islam in isolation - it's the combination of the society that I have no interest in. I wouldn't want us living in an Asian culture either necessarily

So long as you continue to hold this view below - I have to argue you are straying into being morally crooked as opposed to straight. That is an incredibly large, and ignorant brush stroke (no matter how much you claim to know about Islam - which I won't argue could be more than me).

Quote
Islam is dangerous. True Islam is dangerous. I don't think it has a place in a functioning, peaceful western society.

You have always been devoted to the Catholic Church - what does your religion and your religious leader state about Islam? I doubt very much the Pope would let you slide with the above.

Equating sexual with any religion or race is just stupid .
some men rape women
some men rape children
some men rape other men
some Roscommon men rape sheep

the men are TV producers Priests , Journalists, Immans , social workers , scout leader gaa coaches swin coaches soccer coaches , judges ETC
they are are catholic ,prod ,Jew ,atheist, muslim hindu humanist, animist  ETC
they live in Ireland England usa Pakistan india Russian japan ETC

The closet thing to a common factor is the 95% of the time it is men, We have set moral standard we cant live by but for the sake of civilization all we can do is keep trying
now let he who is without sin cast the 1st stone

There's going to have to be some very extenuating circumstances to warrant Liam Miller's family receiving a million from the match.

I know what Liam Miller earned at United, he was one of the highest paid players at the time as he came on a free and his contract reflected that.

Christ there's some serious bitterness on this thread. If you seen his medical expenses you'd see where the money went. He had treatment in america and tried specialist trials which didn't come cheap. Also anyone who thinks he made 10m is living in dreamworld. He had two seasons at Utd and that's were he made the majority of his money.  While he was on decent wages at Leeds & Sunderland it's nothing compared to the wages players are on today.

You'd like to think people would have sympathy for the widow and 3 young kids, but not in this country. The local hospice got €250,000 through the event, but people don't even acknowledge that. We really are a nation of begrudgers.
its not about his wife and kids . thats a variation  the hit me with the child in the arms defense to avoid examining what exactly happened here .
8,000 people were on hospital Trolleys almost every month last year and you call a fundraiser for a millionaire kids a charity match . 
Treatment was sought in America because he could afford it ,

Has there ever been a bigger BOTTLER in the game more so than Aidan O Shea. Jesus he messes up some finals
I wonder has it anything to do with  the pure unadulterated shite he has to listen to

Whatever about February or March  there are usually 27 weekends from the 1st weekend in April to the 1st weekend in October inclusive.
Can we not designate say 11 weekends for Inter County Championships, 11 for Clubs and 5 flexible weekends?
Should be easier when 2 tier All Ireland SFC comes in.
How you distribute those weekends would require a bit of thought but the aimed would be to have all County Finals played by 1st weekend in October.
4 weekends out of 6 in October /November for Provincial Club Championship and second half November 1st weekend in December for All Ireland Club.


The problem with all these plans is the sheer variety of GAA competitions, at club and county level, in both codes. The overall provincial, national and county Master Fixtures plans are almost incomprehensible in their complexity.

Only a tiny minority of clubs take part in provincial Club Championships and only a subset of these take them anyway seriously. I don't think its a good idea to curtail the entire season for everyone, just to suit this minority.

Heh?? What are you talking about, sure the whole thing can be solved in a post that takes 2 minutes to type.

It's the people who are making the fixtures are stupid and know nothing about fixture making is the real problem here.
the real elephant in the room is no solution will fully work while intercounty players are playing club football

Doesn't most of the money that goes to the family just pay the medical bills as he was treated in America.
of
Wonder how much will be raised and what they will do with the money? Was a figure released does anyone know?

I hope the Cork county board got their 30 pieces of silver anyway
was the issue not the 30m pieces they took?
every sport gets grants and it doest mean they no longer have any control over what happens their stadiums or facilities.that is a complete red herring

Who did they sell out . read a history book on the GAA will ye.
they opened the pitch to a crowd of backslapping  millionaires i what even they were ashamed to call a charity match .it was a PR excercize  most of them could easily written a cheque to cover what was made in ticket sales .  Soccer Is  the major competitor to the GAA and allowing them to Freeload on the stadiums built by hard Working GAA Club members while John Delaney pockets a fortune every year to lead what they claim is the biggest sport in the country which does not own one decent pitch and any decent players are sent aboard
ts vey sad That a young family man like Liam Miller died but playing a match in PUC will not do anything to alleviate that ,

Its not a red herring. The specific document they signed explicitly ceding control has been linked to. Cork County Board took money explicitly on the agreement they would host events like this.

It was a chatiry event, for a hospice, and you have no idea what individuals contributed.

You are blaming Delaney because there is more money in English soccer than Irish? Really? Out of interest what does his GAA equivalent earn?

They own plenty of decent stadia, thats a red herring. They just dont need a 45,000 seater in Cork. The place they have there is fit for purpose and better than most county grounds.

Its not about 'allieviating' his death. It was abour Cork celebrating him and making money for the hospice he died in. That this offends you says more about you then them. Duff wasnt completely wrong, you need watching.
do you still think  this was a Charidee event . as I said all along it was a publicly event for the participants and a fundraiser for a millionaire's widow .
their tragedy was losing a husband and father not being poor  , if the players wer so worried about the millers finances they could easily have done a whip round amonst themselves and raised a lot more

the main effect I see is an overexaggeration of everything . including the problem itself.
it like the recent rows in the GAA they are only a big issue because we have picture and an easy way of disseminating them . I have seen no evidence that the numbers of incidences have increased at all .
the same goes for homelessness bullying and suicide

24
Seafóidín I wasn't really comparing the GAA and the HSE.  Just saying the fixtures and the health service are 2 things everyone gives out about but few if any offer solutions.

the problem is that no one is coming forward with ideas its that there are for too many  ideas around and very few hane much in common . bet you see 3 or 4 new ones on this thread before it finishes.
which to me means there is no one great idea out there to solve everyone's problems. and solution has to be a pick and choose of the ones out there . much as it is now but to make change the solution be a clear improvement on whats presently in place

GAA Discussion / Re: Most Geographically Isolated Club in Ireland
« on: October 26, 2018, 02:47:02 PM »
I think a definition of "isolated" is needed here.

a fair distance from Mitchelstown.

OK. Not the definition I expected.

Very good Hardy!
Farr, you could help me out here. I was having an argument with a few Mayo buddies recently  about isolated GAA clubs in the county. (A spin off from this topic.)
Obviously, Achill came up but the argument quickly descended to a quarrel when I said there was no point in trying to name any GAA club on the island because there is none. The only club in that area is across the Sound on Corraun, near the community college. Can you come to my rescue? ;D
We played some underage games on a pitch just backing on to the beach at Keel but that pitch long gone now I think. Played at the secondary school also.

That pitch was referred to as The Sandybanks
is that not kiltanes second pitch in doohoma where they never lost a game . the opposition always lost the will to live

GAA Discussion / Re: GAA clubs named after Republican figures
« on: October 25, 2018, 11:11:26 AM »
I object to many of the club names being branded as Republican.

For example, Redmond O'Hanlon (Poyntzpass) lived in the 17th century whose ancestors built Tandragee (Tayto) Castle and were displaced by O'Neill and then the english. Why would that make him a republican?

John Martin (Glen Co Down) and John Mitchell (Newry) were patriots, not republican.

that would rile out all the parnells and davits , Collins etc

In Kildare we have Kfm who do all the usual big games and their sports coverage is good overall.
There is also a media partner who have been kept on, but I honestly don't see any output bar a quick chat with the manager or a player at the height of Super 8s. Club scene coverage is non-existent and I didn't see a camera at the county final at all.

But then again the fuckin PA system is fucked in Newbridge for as long as I can remember and it hasn't been seen to.
every thing is fucked up in newbridge but kildare people seem to love it anyway.(no chips on shoulders here)

Mayo are faily well looked after Miswest do an good jon with big matches but only ok with clubstuff as they are quiet liable to put on an aker bilk tune instead of staying with the last few minutes of the match.

and the Mayo news do quiet a good podcast if you bear to listen toi the ever pompus wille joe. explain why he wasn't actually at the match
all big club games are streamed by Mayo gaa tv (thouf county board) for €5 euro for okish quality but its improving all the time

what did that do to your insurance?

I thought ryan  o donoughue was by far the pick of the non county men  on show on Saturday . really like the cut of his jib.
as for the seniors
Diarmuid  Oconnor while not having his best games really showed what hes made of again with the last point . and whe you have a  freetaker as good as Cillian you always have a chance esp in low scoring winter games

As for Mayo not being known for big business men at home or abroad? Have you ever been to London or New York? Full of wealthy Mayo men. At home, who do you think owns Portwest, Carraig Donn, McHale machinery, CBE, Smyths toys etc, some clever Galway lads?
Finally your understanding of economics is limited. Mayo has two of the wealthiest towns in Connacht. It also has big businesses and big backers throughout  the county.

I'm not disputing your backing, i'm saying you do a phenomenal job of getting backing. How hard is this to process? Mayo don't have comparable business here or abroad compared to counties like Cork, Kildare, Limerick, Galway, Wicklow etc (and you're deluded if you think they do) but the manage to obtain outside finance far better. Richest Mayo man Charlie Kenny is worth 200m. Plenty of counties can lay claim to billionaires.

Which wealthy towns are you referring to? When I think of wealthy towns in Connacht I think of Barna, Salthill, Oranmore, Rinville, Kinvara, Rosses point & Strandhill. Are there others with a more wealthy populace than these?
your confusing wealth towns with place with wealthy people living there .
west cork or wicklow probable has more millionaire than anywhere else outside of Dublin but they are feck all good to the GAA
