The Dubs went on an historical outing. Be clear now, it was an historical outing. Philly McMahon will bring out a book about the trip any day now, explaining about how it affected him deeply, almost as deeply as his brothers heroin addiction. Did you know Phillys brother was an addict? You may not have, he doesn't like to talk about it all that much. But yea, his brother died from drug addiction. True story. Not many people know about it.

That is truly pathetic. You should delete this post.

Agree 100% about this unfair punishment. a small number of counties are being punished while there were numerous counties who had training camps. For Dublin to be declared innocent is hard to take.
Did you know?

I'm sure this has nothing whatsoever to do with the money that the GAA would lose if Dublin lost a home game.

High Fielder is right. It's a load of shite. Not only is it a kick in the hole for the players, but it's a kick in the hole for the supporters who will be out of pocket as a result.

If the GAA treated everyone equally, it would be easier to take (even though it is still a load of shite). The treatment of the Laois' and Wexfords of this world is totally out of order. They should fight this to the very end, preferably all 4 counties joning together to do so.

Mocking a family that lost a son to heroin addiction?.

mocking a player that spends 2 days of the week free of charge,helping prisoners in mountjoy to break the cycle of incarceration,who works with young people at risk of drugs and gangs?.

You really are a bit of a p***k aren’t you?

I like philly he's  an absolute  thug on the field but comes across  as a decent  fella.....  to mock him like  that is wrong.  Walk a day in his shoes  and you'd see what devastation heroin addiction causes.  If it was a chap from your local village would you be as quick to mock him or would  you  do it to his face.......  Doubt it very  much !!!
With  regards to the punishment look who was banned,  small counties  in the lower leagues yet the dubs can do what they like. Not a word on mainstream  media but if it was a big team it would be all over the papers, news and online news sites......  Laois doesn't  matter in the greater scheme of things

The GAA has long ago stopped treating counties equally or fairly. But in the past  decade the focus is on the top 8 teams both by Croker and the media. Competition structures favour the super powers. Its going to get worse with a B Championship. Wont work long term.

It's time for our CB to stand up for the county; the players in particular. The GAA have fucked us about in the last few years and clearly don't give a fiddlers about us. They are a seriously deluded bunch who have no regard for the effort being made in Laois or elsewhere. They need to be told to f**k off and stop putting barriers in our way. It's hard enough getting lads to play and supporters to pay in an era when quite frankly, there is little to entice counties like Laois. A real sickener.

The problem is here- the GAA can't take a Dublin home game away because it shines a very public light on the fact Dublin own Croke Park and they do not want that debate. The GAA cant tell Dublin they loose a game in Parnell Park because they will look like fools and they cant take a Croke Park game because Dublin will say well thats not our Home Ground. This is the result of what you get when you allow a county dow hat they want, when they want and give them millions in the process.

Is there really a debate about whether or not Croke Park is Dublin's home ground? They play their home fixtures there and if they were to be treated like everyone else, they'd have to play in a neutral venue. I don't know - maybe it's because it's an amateur association that money is so important in their decision-making but they really are losing the public with this carry on I think.

If for example they fixed the carlow game for newbridge or the westmeath game for o connor park ..

Id be inclined for sugrue to make a Portlaoise or nowhere stance and put the gaa underpressure thus getting the whole county behind him and getting the Laois people's gander up so to speak it would only work wonders for the spirit he has already created within  the camp.and the support who are starting to come back out in numbers ..

f**k the Gaa

LAOIS ARE ON THE UP
LAOIS ABÚ
