. Rugby and other sports kept their house in order as such, albeit with less playing numbers and profile.

Sorry? What?

"Gah bad soccer good" man will be happy.
Gaelic games at County level are no longer elite presumably on the basis that players are amateurs who work in the Community. How then can the smaller Soccer clubs whose players are semi pro and also work be considered elite and are able to start their League shortly ?

I think this will finish a lot of local rural clubs.

I've a few friends here that have never touched a rugby ball in their life already asking about playing a game of it when it opens.

Because the FAI didn't organise parades, have all night sessions in clubhouses and allow fans to sit in groups.

I wonder is there some way to condense the county season so that we can have club football also. If county training is only supposed to start in April and league starts in May then it's not gonna leave much time for club. Give 3 or 4 months to each and fit whatever fixtures possible into the timeframe.

5 weekends in May would finish the League.
8 weekends June and July would leave time for Provincials, Qualifiers(reduced numbers)Tailteann and AI.
Club Championships to start as County teams exit Championships while Dublin and whoever they beat in the Final could start theirs weekend of 7/8 August.
With hurling as well it would be pretty hectic but such is life.

Let the club season go from May to August. Gives everyone football in the best months of the year. Inter county in the autumn, could get crowds at the point as well.

That could work, as I said earlier around 4 months for each would be fair.

The Gov Have stabbed the GAA in the back big time with this Shite , allowing Soccer and rugby to Continue while banning the the GAA is a f**king Disgrace.
Do they really think the Shit that passes for Soccer in the FAI  passes for elite Sport or the mudbaths that the Irfu run in the PRO14 which the better rugby players will only play in the final of/ in fact it a sign your career is going no where if you have loads pro14 caps.
If the GAA though anthey were builging up goodwill  doing the Governments Job helping the old and In form they must feel proper twats now.  it was still the right thing to do as is allowing Vaccinations take place on GAA grounds. But at a time when the FAI ( who refused to answer a dail committees questions about finance)_are more or less being completely bank rolled by the  dept of sport 90 million and counting this year the GAA are being treated like Amadan's .

That's one point of view. Another pint of view is the GAA called out the government/NPHET last year over covid only to have numerous embarrasing scenes that meant the club championships had to be cacelled before all the counties could complete them.

While the FAI has been a shambles they and the clubs ran the LOI season without any incidents and strictly followed the covid protocols. The IRFU also strictly followed the covid protocols and din't have any issues either

Becauae in this instance the GAA were amadans.

Look back to threads on here last summer. Packed stands. All night sessions in clubhouses. In Blackrock the GAA organised a parade and used official social media channels to tell the world they did. A club selecting a player they knew had Covid. Mayo officiaos sneaking onto Croker. Just this week a sanction for breaching covid regulations was reduced.

There are no similar stories in rugby and soccer.

We were never getting away with it.

packed stands at inter county gamers give me one example.  every gam Was bee played behind closed door to such an extent that  mayo had to sneak 3 members of the backroom team into the final . got caught and they were banned . Loi could never even fill a proper stand even for their biggest game  and are as far from Elite that they should not even be in the Conversation. Its a Dumping ground for failed  soccer players won every year the the Club willing to take on the biggest debt a almost invariably go broke the next year  despite all the government had outs

Are you for real? There is a thread on here with dozens of examples of games with more than the 200 limit packed on stands.

The rest of your post is infantile soccer bashing that misses the point. The LoI on Covid managed itself better than the GAA. Hence they start in March and Gaelic games don't.

It's interesting you can only defend one of the incidents listed by BB2. He cold have listed several more examples if he wanted to. I can understand your thought process though, it's impossible to defend what happened in the club championships last year so better to focus on what was done at inter county level.
