Spillane article
« on: January 13, 2020, 11:29:29 AM »
Re: The paid manager part of it.

Dublin have paid employees (Before you all start)

However a bit different here, i mentioned a current manager was getting 50/60 a year at a certain county and got lambasted.

Genuine question,  any ideas who this is. Football, no Championship silverware (implying maybe a league :)
My own opinion its Mayo or Tyrone, look to managers with no job and maybe one that has held on to it for too long.
Is it on the books and paying tax on  it?

Spillane in the Indo: 

A bigger issue is that even in counties where the manager is not getting paid, he has assembled a very expensive back-room team, so the county board doesnít save anything. By the way, this time last year I revealed that one football manager was being paid Ä100,000.
So how did he get on?
Well, his team didnít win any championship silverware.
But heís back at the helm in 2020 with presumably the same package.
The take-home message from all the reaction I received last weekend was that somebody needs to cry halt.
Maybe the next GAA president, who will be elected in a couple of months, might be the man to save us all.

12. I reckon 13 inter-county football managers are getting paid at the moment Ė which is a relatively low figure.

Personally would have thought it was closer to at least double that.

How would Pat Spillane know this? Given the majority of club managers are getting paid these days (at least in Tyrone) i'd have assumed 90+% of county managers would be also

Spillane does roughly the same levels of research for his articles, as a bull does into its mating partners.

He has been stealing a living for 25 years, and that his opinions are considered still relevant is a blemish on Irish society.

I reckon that the number of mangers not being paid in Offaly is definitely in single digits, across both codes. Iíd nearly say that you could count them on one hand.

Anyone that thinks that some county managers are not getting paid are living in cloud cuckoo land. We even an individual on here who was adamant that their county manager was doing it for nothing.

And probably around 2,000 Senior Club managers between football and hurling earning from Ä10k upwards.
A Club in Roscommon giving a lad Ä170 per session for a 30km round trip.......
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Spillane is like the Larry Gogan of GAA punditry. Larry played records, there was no real research or insight. He relied on sound bites. In Larry's case this was ok. He was a humble soul, knew the score and was professional at what he did. Spillane on the other hand has a high opinion of himself and sees himself as some sort deep thinker.

I wonder if he is talking about McGeeney? The question is how would he know regardless of who he is talking about? Iím fairly sure I know the answer to that one

I'd offer to do something extremely stupid if McGeeney is on 100k. Absolutely no chance in my opinon.

Is the myth of Harte not getting paid gone now then??

Iíd imagine Gavin didnít get paid or refused to take expenses or whatever he seems like that sort.

Depending who you listen to he is on anything between £50k and £80k. Not that I necessarily believe that
