He's right though. A new thread is stupid.

Sadly Kildare are better then Laois at Minor hurling.
How come we beat them earlier on this year then? They might well be at our level but a pretty sweeping statement to say they're better than Laois.

Disappointing. Our deficiencies laid bare once again. I feel so sorry for those lads who are used as square pegs in round holes, because it's days like these that find you out. The best corner back in Laois last year was Saunders of Portlaoise. I know he's not involved with the 20s, but any selection after him in that position is a lesser option. It's not really anyone's fault, but this is a lot of our problem.
You can't make a lad play. He turned down the invite.

We will have to up our scoring rate, I donít think we have got over 13 points in any of the last games we have played there
Carlow being one of those, Dublin the other, and the league final in which we kicked about 500 wides.
We played Louth there too.
I refuse to acknowledge that fixture
So did some of our players!😀

Disappointing but I can't blame him. I'm actually surprised more don't go. Playing for your county is an honour, but playing for nothing in every sense of the word is a waste of time.

There is no solution out there, not tiered championships, tin pot second and third rate cups, none of it can save what is a dying concept. Inter county, at its core, is boring and inequitable. I love Laois. I hope we beat Westmeath etc etc. But no harm done in the overall scheme of things if we don't.

I have no idea why a lad would train all winter, play the league and the leave the panel just before the championship. When was the gear handed out as a matter of interest?
::) New level of stupid. Train your arse off for 4 or 5 months for a few bits of O'Neills...

Have two rounds of the Championship coinciding with the county players availability.
Ah no. Don't disagree regarding the mediocrity of the league but starting the championship in April and resuming it three or four months later is not the answer.

As someone said, the teams that do well in this don't bother much with ex county guys but tend to play lads aged 40, 41, 42 who are still in good nick and playing club football.
Noel Garvan and Chris Conway certainly fit that bill. Tom Kelly would too. JP Conway, Paul McDonald, John Kealy, Podge Langton, Tom McDonald all would be big additions.

Anyone know how Ballylinan are faring internally so far? Have they got the lads back in that they were missing last year?
A couple of lads were abroad I think. Don't know if they're back.
It looks like they have everyone back and are going well too. 3 wins from 3.

Ross King has some character to go back. Fair play to him. If I was in his shoes, I wouldn't walk into a dressing room with anyone from Camross in it. He's a bigger man than many I think.
