Gaelic Football RIP
« on: July 21, 2018, 06:37:09 PM »
The game has turned into a farce. It's not Gaelic Football. It's a hybrid Basketball/Rugby League game now. Actually kicking the ball is the stuff of history. No wonder people are walking away. Boring as f**k

No, you're wrong.
It's better than it has ever been.
Apparently.
Which is why people who've played and watched the game for decades can't be arsed with it anymore.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Desperately need a rule to make the massed defence redundant; club football is even worse than county football for this stuff

Ha ha. McCann just rugby tackled a Dublin lad and didn't even get a card. Pathetic stuff. GAA groupies defending the indefensible

The title of this thread needs changes to intercounty football.  Club football is still very entertaining

Watch club football.

And leave county football to us frowners who love the offside trap.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

You mustn't have watched the last four All-Ireland club finals.

Tyrone v Dublin this evening was light years ahead both in quality and entertainment.

Overall, club football is light years behind.

Most of it is absolute dirge.

The real stuff is played at inter-county level.

Club football is kids stuff by comparison.

If by real stuff you mean uncompetitive and repetitive then fair enough. Dublin are the best exponents of the modern game, but they're hardly exciting are they? I'm just expressing a personal opinion here. I find modern intercounty football dull. The endless hand passing, the lack of physicality, the handbags blow ups, the make it up as you go along refereeing, the atmosphere at matches etc. Modern football is rubbish in my opinion
