Why is setting ambitious goals still seen as a no-no in the GAA? Have we not grown out of this "ara shure we'll turn up anyway" malarkey?
Malarkey like Jim Gavin talking up the likes of Louth and Wicklow before playing them and saying he  and his players aren't looking past that "challenge"

And Horan, Rochford, etc would say the very same before Mayo hammer Leitrim out the gate.

It is Conor McGregor type managers you want? Tell the opposition they're not fit to be on the same pitch? Or is this just another salty teared effort to have a go at Jim?

Nothing salty, just pointing out to Seanie that the GAA hasn't grown out of the malarkey stuff when even the best manager is at it

Conor McGregor is a over the top gimmick to attract attention and maybe Joyce is doing something simliar at a lower scale to attract bigger Galway support to games.

Liam Kearns said to be going to Clann na nGael?

He was appointed Clann na nGael manager tonight.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Probably the ideal choice.
Used to dealing with large amounts of undeclared cash from various unknown sources.

Former Kerry team nutritionist and Listowel native Kevin Beasley has now joined the Donegal Management Team.
He was highly respected with the Kerry players during Eamon Fitzmaurice time in charge.
How did Peter Keane let this highly rated nutritionist leave Kerry to go North ?
Also Kerry Senior Team expenses went from 353,294 in 2018 to 534,883 in 2019 ... is it all the steak (well done) they are eating ?

Has Dessie Farrell been rubber stamped to succeed Jim Gavin yet?

The price of playing in two All Ireland finals compared to a quarter final exit?

They had 3 extra games at the end of the season this year right enough and I'm sure no money was spared over those 4 weeks.
