Why canít they walk away again? Of course they can. Football is not compulsory.

Because they more than likely won't be there to walk away!

You can't walk away again from something if you are no longer part of it!

Simple!
ďDo you think Carnacon (or any other club) will try this stunt again?Ē

Apologies for not realising you were talking about these 8 players.  ::)

Any player can walk away if they want. If anything, this episode will make players smarter in how they go about it.

I also imagine youíll see at least some of the 8 in a Mayo jersey again.
You probably will see some of them play for Mayo again. Hopefully they learned some humility and that the manager runs the team, not them.

To be fair, They walked away hoping that they would bring the whole thing tumbling down and that the county board would run after them to try and keep them in the squad rather than risk losing them. They felt they had the power to do this. I still think the Manager has done the right thing in standing up to them in the long run and that the players needed their wings clipped. That's happened now, and I think it will stand to Mayo in the long run.

That's a fair enough view, but this appealing and counter-appealing is just vindictive, petty and reflects very poorly on the Mayo LGFA in particular.

Yeah the bans were a different matter.

Looks like this fiasco has came to the most likely conclusion. I doubt the Mayo LGFA County Board ever thought they could hold onto the bans. Appealing it just prolonged the inconvenience for Carnacon. Players will think again about jumping ship from a Mayo Ladies team or trying to control its running's. A clear message of zero tolerance has been sent out. For those who have controlled it there will more than likely be no return. In the process they may have dragged a few innocent by-standers into the same situation.

The provocative act by the Mayo LGFA of banning Carnacon for a year, has badly backfired on them in my opinion. They have been knocked back at every turn. I don't know how you can see any positive side to it.
They really made fools of themselves , where do they go from here , who would trust them now to make a rational decision ?

I disagree! Do you think Carnacon (or any other club) will try that stunt again next year? Do you think that the Mayo LGFA County Board have set the tone for the future?

For 8 players from one club to walk away from the county squad a few days before a Championship match can not be condoned.

Carnacon thought they could bully this situation but got a bucket load of their own medicine.

By the way what has happened to Coras Book?

Id reckon Extra chapter are being furiously written.

What I find odd, to say the least, is the fact that Cora & Co. have not elaborated on their reasons for walking away. What they said was loaded with sexual innuendo but they havenít bothered explaining what they meant and neither has the LGFA county board or the manager.
If I was the manager, I wouldnít let such accusations pass unchallenged. The county board and other club delegates obviously know more of what the real story is and voted overwhelmingly to turf Caranacon out of competition of all grades, only to have the ban rescinded by the National Appeals Committee.
 There is no way imaginable that the members of this committee didnít not have full possession of the relevant facts. They had to be fully aware of the rumours and counter rumours that were circulating and yet did nothing to indicate why they took a far less critical approach when the playersí reasons for walking  out were discussed.

You could wreck your head trying to figure that one out.

I mean to cap it all, the committee must have had a lot of sympathy for the players who buggered off and should have taken action to investigate the seriousness of their allegations.
So the players were concerned about their personal welfare but the county board apparently rejected their claims only for the appeals committee to disagree with the board.
If all this wasnít complicated enough, the manager hasnít made a move of any sort to either clear his name or else accept the players had a grievance.  Heís biding his time also. Itís as if there is is a big crock of shite ready to hit the fan.

I did listen but he did not demand that the players should withdraw their allegations or go to any length to explain why he felt they were wrong. When he had finished, nobody was left any wiser and he hasn't gone any further to clear his name either.
Did he come right out and say what the personal differences were and why he rejected them?

They did run an independent investigation and found the allegations were baseless

Coming in half way through a season and expecting to just walk back into a team (league finalists no less) is incredibly disrespectful. Itís pretty clear Cora believes her own hype and canít see how terrible a headline that is for her crediblity.

Carnacon and Knockmore both won this morning handy enough to set up a repeat of last years county final

Yeah the manager shouting at players and not being positive enough is not creating an unsafe environment what a load of aul shite. Thatís elite level sport I find it hard to believe Staunton hasnít experienced that before!

And it wouldn't be much of a stretch to think the 'unhappy' players Cora was speaking of were the few who were used to calling the shots under previous managers.
