That whole place should be fenced off back into Offaly where it came from and where it belongs. They are no good to Laois. From senior to u14, all our squads are missing Camross lads who are good enough but wonít commit. Theyíre much happier to be the big fish, playing league matches on a Tuesday night instead of being in the training centre with the other county standard hurlers.

Nah we donít want them. Weíre currently trying to rid ourselves of the Camross of Offaly, Shinrone. Well except Shinrone have and will forever win NOTHING. The sooner they f**k off back to Tipp the better.

Hang on now, plenty of Camross men have represented this county with pride and distinction. Even Zane whom many will give grief to put his body on the line on many occasions for Laois. We should temper the blanket painting of the club with this knowledge. What happened Sunday was wrong, that theyíve circled the wagons isnít surprising, itís merely disappointing.

May I also commend Rory Delaney for a well thought out piece.

Iím not talking about the ones who have. Iím taking about the huge numbers who havenít. They have way more opt outs than all other clubs.

And donít get me going on Zane. What a waste of talent. Heíd much rather be a hero hitting line balls up the mountain than challenging himself against good players like the limerick or galway backs in the NHL

Harsh. Zane did all of that. You may not have liked that he didn't go in year on year, but he gave good commitment under Chedd, and its worth remembering that he wrecked his knee while playing for Laois.

I merely said its worth bearing in mind those who have, when throwing around the abuse, which a few are doing.

Whether the current do or don't commit, thats a different matter entirely.

A lot of proud Camross men and women are disgusted by what happened.

It's wrong to paint them all with the same brush and only serves to allow those responsible to hide amongst all the furore.

I would feel for the genuine supporters but I'd imagine the majority don't care what anyone thinks today.

Hurling in laois reached a low on Sunday. I thought the semi final was bad but when a mentor can do what was done at the b/k match I can only see it getting worse

Zane's not likely to go in, but Collier would be a great addition. Gearoid Burke would add a bit of steel to the backs, too... But, alas, unlikely to go, either.

A new low? What are you on about? Not remember the Camross/ Castletown sagas, or the Portlaoise/ Camross bust-ups? Or the several Clonaslee 'incidents'? It was bad, but far from a 'new low'.

Do you not think a lot of it had been cleaned up in the last few years?   I actually think things had improved a bit.  We had started to see some good clean hurling and now I feel we are slipping

It's only a couple of years back when we had a great match between r/e and b/know that gave great hope but alas nothing has progressed much

That's a lot of big matches won over the years where these "tactics" were used!
It didn't start last Sunday!

I think it was the combination of cynical tactics, officials with no backbone and social media mockery that has everyone up in arms.

Now culchy we have reached page 27 so there's a little motivation for next year !

I would agree with Don here. What happened on Sunday was a bad affair however it's unfair to tar the whole of Camross. Sure, there should/could be more from Camross on the team but that's notthe issue here.

2 match ban for Dooley i hear, dont think anything else came of the meeting last night. Ban starts next years championship. Youíd love to have seen more bans handed out but in reality thats all our county board was ever going to do, and thats only because of the media scrutiny.
