Is it not the case that we have had the opportunity to play Dublin in Portlaoise but the gate receipts are worth more to Laois if played in Croke Park? It's more about money than fairness.

Duignan was an outspoken, former player and got elected. Why not the likes of Rigney if he wanted it?

In fairness it was a private discussion between two lads with a vested interest in the subject matter that's gone public. I would think both men are mortified. Hard to see Eddie surviving and the knives will be out for Wooly. It'll be another typical Laois f**k up story again.

What would lads hopes be for the Dublin game? Or better still the expectations?

It's a bit of a bonus game as nobody would expect anything from it bar an easy win for the Dubs and by how much. PP odds for Dublin are 1/500.

I didin't expect that result but it made my weekend. Very proud of the lads for leaving everything out on the grass of Nowlan Park.
If the game had gone on for another 5 minutes I am convinced we'd have beaten Clare. There was huge momentum with Laois at that stage. Clare were able to pick off the scores a little easier but our direct running really unsettled them.
In fairness to Donol Og he is right re the scoring, 27-20. For modern intercounty hurling a tally of 17 points is not enough to win a game.
The team is evolving and improving year on year and like everyone else I would hope that Eddie stays on. I get the impression that there is a great bond between him and the team and he speaks very passionately so he has an emotional involvement that wouldn't have been there with other outside managers.

I wouldn't be dripping with cash but if a supporters club was set up to help finance the hurlers I would happily donate a few bob because they've given me a few good days in the past few years. Interesting to hear Lyons in co-commentary saying that some of the Laois lads needed to bulk up a bit to compete better in the physical stakes. Is he right?

What's the story with Podge Lalor? He was in for a while and did quite well I thought.

Something similar to performance against Tipp last year would be great.

I mentioned Cork earlier because I don't think they are any better than Clare at the moment and wouldn't be putting 10 goals past us. Why not play Cork instead of Clare? The last time we played Clare in the championship in the double header they gave us a pasting.

Wouldn't have minded a shot at Cork as they don't seem to be in great shape. Can't see us getting close to Clare to be honest.

Carlow have been performing well at this grade for the past few years so the win is to be applauded. It was also good to get a result after the hammering of the minors on Saturday. A win is a win and we'll go again in the New Year at some stage.

Disaster of a result. As soon as we talk a team up they're k ocked back. Will be classed as a poor year. Derek McGrath migh leave that one off his cv.
