If he leaves me a question Iíll respond. Would be rude if I didnít.

Iím sure all is well in Belfast GAA, now that there will be more openness in Gaelfast

Thats an interesting assertion Whatwillb.

Looks like the pandemic has caused chaos with GAA finances. The knock on effect does not look promising. Will there even be a NFL this year? That prospect is diminishing by the day due to counties simply not being able to absorb the expense of inter county competition without the standard Ä80k annual funding grant from Croke Park.

In the medium term this might not be the worst thing, a total reset for the game in terms of this professional type of preparation county teams are now going through.

This was never a sustainable process IMO and this crisis while wholly unwanted might be just what is required. Hopefully it will filter down to club teams as well and the will a revisiting of the crazy money that some clubs are paying out.

Fair enough point but who's going to stop?

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
