Kimmage is a Dubs man, followed him long enough on Twitter to know he's a genuine love of the game & Dublin.

Kimmage isn't anti-gaa.
He's anti-doping.
I actually think he's approaching this issue in the context of saving the GAA before PEDs take hold in any significant way.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

John McEntee gives the subject both barrels in today's Irish News.  Subtle as a sledgehammer!

One of the few to actually broach the subject. It's almost as if it is a no go area with most GAA pundits who normally have an opinion on anything and everything. I could be wrong but I don't even think it got a mention on The Sunday Game other than for Tomas O'Se to say that he was a lovely fella. It's a bigger issue than just Brendan O'Sullivan, it has wider consequences for the sport and the safety of some of these products. The GAA/GPA have been very silent on the matter also.

Was listening to some of the coverage on OTB podcast earlier and they made two points that I thought were interesting - firstly, while MHA isn't listed as an ingredient, if you do a search for the supplement, the first result doesn't list MHA as an ingredient but the 2nd, 3rd& 4th results do. Secondly, they were talking about how ludicrous it is that someone is given a supplement by the Kerry medical team, doesn't like the taste so instead of going back to the medical team, he decides to take advice from a gym buddy and buy something off his own bat.....gross stupidity at best

What's going on in Westmeath
surely its to the repondsility of the sport ireland/wada  tester to ensure the sample gets to the clinic
i dont see a role for westmeath or the GAA here . is this a case of a very misleading ant GAA headline or am i missing something?
is the courier company based in Westmeath?

What's going on in Westmeath

One would imagine that two samples are collected, A and B.  Surely to God nobody would ship both samples together?  If sample A goes missing, split sample B, under controlled conditions, and resubmit. 

Not that hard.

Misleading dramatic headline as standard for the Indo. The responsibility for the samples has nothing to do with Westmeath once they have been provided. The GAA and the players have done nothing wrong here but that wouldn't get as many clicks.

had you asked about the other counties who had moved training and not alerted SI then that would have been a better story.
