Not St Endas anyway as They have appointed another hiredhand Carl mcCabe of St Galls & Omagh. They seem addicted to the paid outsider in all Codes

Are you helping to pay for the hired help?
[/quote No I have principles and U CAnt buy those

Eat, sleep, work and complain about Clubs paying managers, repeat.

Would listen to yourself you muppet. County secretaries paid, 40 plus employees including coaches etc paid just in the Ulster council alone, never mind the multiple games development managers and gpo's in counties. Physio, masseurs, video analysis, club grounds men, pitch maintenance companies, I could write an essay and you blether on about managers. Antrim are so far behind because we have dinosaur's like you. Its a wonder your not giving out about Peter Quinn for not building the new croke park with volunteer brickies, electricians and jooiners etc. Those days are long gone, because people are so busy now and also the role is v specialised, and for clubs who have ambition they realise they need that expertise of its doesn't exist in their club. Most clubs don't. Might have it at underage which is simple coaching with young boys, but senior football is different gravy.

Only one issue with your sentiments there DK, we are where we are because of the dinosaurs that have played musical chairs with the roles over this last 15years within the county not BGAAM he pays into ever game and follows his county with bind faith id say, full clear out required a long long time ago, apart from that your spot on...

What kind of money do you think these guys are getting lol. This is not ferraris, yachts and 2nd houses - it's in most cases, in antrim club football particularly, probably little more than expenses.

Yeah the money mentioned might be. How true that is is another matter altogether.

Well to be fair the track record of the Cargin boss would lead you to believe that it would be significantly more than 'just over expenses'  ;)

And if someone is willing to pay him his 'expenses' then so be it....

He's been great value for it in the Antrim Championship.

There will be the odd exception but I imagine most of the ones won't exactly have life changing experiences based on what they get... I suspect a lot of what managers get is very much embellished. I wouldn't believe the half of it lol.

 I doubt those type of figures are to be believed.

Genuine question are there any division 1 clubs in Antrim that haven’t paid an outside manager or football coach in the last 5 years? Cargin Creggan LD St endas Aghagallon portglenone st galls
ahoghill gort ma Mona have been paying. Not sure about the johnnies.

Go into division 2 and off the top of my head ballymena Whitehill Moneyglass Aldergrove have all had outsiders. You’d think by the chat from some on here that only 2 or 3 clubs paid and the rest had homegrown volunteers. Fake news!
