Bernard is a business guy with a corporate mindset and that's the way he carries himself in all aspects of his life

It's why he never attained the folk hero status that Dermo did

So if restrictions are better thatís 76% willing to give it a go

Not just restrictions though. Testing, transport to games for example have to be an issue

You said better restrictions in your initial post, so I didnít expect it to be just temp checks.

If thereís testing then thatís great, if all good to go transport shouldnít be a problem?

Ah lad come on. It's not just one or two things thing. I only listed a couple of examples. There's bound to be other issues. What happens if a players test positive at county and misses work does he get paid? Will GAA offer compensation? I doubt there's an easy quick fix. The GAA seem to have the attitude get the games played and it'll all be grand.

With all the Covid issues around both the Galway and Kerry U20 teams this week it's amazing that the game is going ahead tomorrow

If someone shows up at a GAA training or game and is positive, then it is most likely that they got it at work. They can claim the government payment like everyone else. If there was any real evidence of cluster of infection at a GAA event then perhaps a different view might be taken.

I think Dublin7 has a different agenda, the fear of Dublin losing ;)

But in all seriousness, next year, some one catches Covid weíll just stop the games again, the year after someone catches it again weíll close it down again..

Or this ones good, someone catches it, he quarantines and everyone else gets tested, all good, then games goes ahead. Not perfect but binning the championship till we get a miracle is not the answer

Lot of the narrative is around county wonít break the rules and things will be a lot tighter. Canít agree with that when Sligo manager Carew in paper today talks about having 60 players in on trial when gaa states it was strictly 32 players per panel. He also had over 45 players for a trial game against Wexford .

Unsubstantiated rumours of split between players and manager.
Chairman Stenson was earlier in the week  calling for the League games to not go ahead.
Still Connacht Champions

You could write off Leitrimís chances of Sam after that.  Player revolts against management donít end well until thereís a manager change.

Unable or simply chose not to field? Tipp at home was a relegation play off for them regardless of the result today and they clearly weren't keen on traveling to Down.

He's managing Carlow now.

That's a major issue. Sean Cavanagh thinks players will hide symptoms to play in games. Some managers will pressure players to delay tests to play in games as well.

This insistence that the championship has to be played regardless of everything is crazy. There's going to be games called of due to cases of Covid and with such a short window to play the games walkovers will have to be awarded. Leitrim have already pulled out of a game this weekend. Championship could become a bit of a farce.

I said in summer, when club championship was on, to finish that and forget about intercounty.

The likes of Leitrim would only have one championship game anyway.

Testing must be regularised, not at the discretion of the management or the player but someone outside the team who comes along and runs the testing. So testing at training and testing at games.

Wondering how the other elete teams who travelled north last weekend worked around this scenario :

Quote
The Leitrim chairman also revealed that some members of the team were unable to travel as they were told by their employers that they would have to quarantine for 14 days if they crossed the border: ďThere were some others told by their work that if they had played in Newry, they would have to stay away from work for two weeks. Thatís awful to put young fellows under pressure to that extent but that happened and that was disappointing.Ē
