Saw him in action.

Very like Fr. Dermo from Fr. Ted.

What a player though.

Mossy Quinn said on Twitter something along the lines of:

You'd wonder if Kerry might have been tempted to put Cifford on the subs bench for the replay, if it wasn't against the rules


Why would it be against the rules to call him up?

Minors can't play IC Senior.

Seniors should be open to all ages. It's only a very special player that would be deemed good enough to play senior anyway whilst still in minor grade.

It should be re-termed over 18's instead of senior.

Nonsense. The rule is there to protect players, just as the one preventing 17 year-olds playing senior club is.

Seriously regressive thinking on your part.

I don't have an issue at club level, I can understand this. However at senior intercounty level the issue is not one of protection, the player would not be selected in the first instance if he wasn't deemed suitably conditioned. Clifford would not look out of place physically on a senior squad and has the ability to go along with it.

One rule for one and another for someone else does not work.

Why have any rules? To prevent abuse.

Is that 18 up or you have to be older ie 19 up?
You can forget about Sean Cavanagh as far as he's a man!

From the 1st of January. i.e. you have to be in your last year Minor before you can play senior club, and you have to be over Minor to play Senior I.C.

Clifford will make an excellent roving half-back for some VFL team for about six weeks before suffering a catastrophic injury that destroys his career.

When did that rule change?

Another reason why we will never see the likes of Benny Coulter ever again...
