GAA Discussion / Re: Money is Destroying the Game

This financial issue also drips down to club football. I'm sure most counties have clubs barely surviving trying to pay outside managers, s&c coaches, video analysts, physios etc. Club lottos meant to improve the club infrastructure are being handed over with interest. The big loser in all this is juvenile set-ups which are left under resourced. This eventually leads to poorer county teams down the line. It's a hugely issue croke park need to tackle

As someone said earlier the next appointment has to be more than just the senior manager. We need a director of football figure, someone who will come in on a 5 year contract and completely revitalise the whole set-up from underage to senior. Look what John Evans achieved in tipp. He may have moved on but the structures he put in place are now producing results.

I am not criticising anyone but at present the coaching set up is managed by the Co Sec. You need a specialised person in there to do it correctly.

If we just appoint a senior manager we'll be having this discussion again in 2 years when he resigns. I would suggest someone like tommy conroy. He has all the qualifications. Put somebody young (Joe Higgins or Chris Conway) in with him to take over senior job in 2 years for tommy to concentrate on coaching set up. Time to think long term

to go off on a slight tangent this situation is just an example of the poor direction many clubs have been taking. the pursuit of short term success seems to be the only thing on their minds.  i know killeen might be the most obvious offender but what about the thousands of euro small clubs hand out to outside managers / strenght and conditioning coaches every year. club 'development' lottos are being used to pay these fees. think what that money could do to help with young  player development. maybe clubs would'nt have to look elsewhere for players then.
