The match organisers should have contacted the GAA quietly and asked if they could use PUC. They didnít, it came out in the public, and the media forced the GAAís hand. They had little choice but to allow it. The GAA would have allowed it anyway, but it was the way it was done that wrangles me.

But one thing thatís come out of it all, Damian Duff is a wee p***k.

My opinion exactly, 1st paragraph.

Like the Gaa should have contacted Kildare Gaa prior to the Newbridge or nowhere fiasco last year. The way that was done wangles with me. Amazing how they felt bullied in this instance but weren't slow in attempting to bully Kildare Gaa.

You give respect then you might get some to use their own tagline.

The GAA top brass seem to be very poor at understanding the thinking of the average GAA member on the ground or the general public

I would agree. They have lost their touch. Something goes arseways every year

FFS did someone not have a word and just say 'drop that section there Tom'...

Look I do think that the Liam Miller organisers initially went about it bad, but to say the GAA were bullied by media when any GAA person I spoke to was saying they should open the place up for a charity match...that was not bullying from media that was a groundswell with their own ranks.
They tried to bully Kildare and the public pushed back. Who was the bully there?

Christ why oh why open this all up again?!
them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

Yes thatís true too. Iím glad Kildare won that one. Had it been my team, Iíd have backed them all the way, even if that meant forfeiting their championship place.
