« on: February 09, 2019, 10:56:43 PM »
Monaghan and Kerry beating Dublin outside Croker. Is it it time to move Dublin outside Croker Park for championship games??

Just been reading Cahair O’Kane’s report of last weeks Congress which saw Dublin allowed two games at the QF stage.

Not only that, but they tightened up the rules so that there won’t be another ‘Newbridge or Nowhere’ moment.

Congress is no longer fit for purpose as the GAA’s Decision-making body. It’s far from a democracy.

We are all part of the one big family. Sure they have even put a wall up in Croke Park to show you how together we are. How we all matter.

Donegals motion was shite and purely anti Dublin. Dublin should not have two home games but the motion was wrong for me. We should scrap the "Croke park" weekend and have a neutral weekend instead, this will allow for games at Croke park too but also get Dublin out of Croke park and if for example Kerry and cork were to play in this round dragging them up to Croke park would be totally unnecessary

Something about a “safety” ruling. Basically if they said Newbridge or anywhere isn’t fit to host a game, it will be forced to go to elsewhere.

And what tragedy occurred last year in Newbridge I missed? Restricted capacity and added measures but was a great occasion?

None. Those at the top was embarrassed last summer as they had no choice but play that game in Newbridge. Now thanks to that congress vote they can move qualifiers out of home venues and into Croke Park if they please.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Yup that’s about the height of it. How dare they stand up to us!

It was badly worded and I agree with your general point.

Dublin are the only team that gets the unfair advantage and the motion was trying to do away the unfairness. I think calling it ant-Dublin is misleading.

The conditions in Dr Hyde park have been a great leveller so far. You never see the Dublin players slipping and sliding like that in the comfort of their Croke Park home.

If you could get referees to blow a few Dublin players up for the fouling off the ball then teams would also have a better chance

Ref is giving frees for nothing and then ignoring blatant fouls. Pitch is a real leveller. Its loooks like players are playing on am ice rink. Anybody's game at this stage. Roscommon no 11 is a class act
