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 .

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

Has someone in the government, NPHET, league of Ireland or Gaa HQ said this is the reason or you simply jumping to conclusions?

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.

That wink and nudge culture around rules simply won't fly in the current climate. It's quite worrying that we still have people either unaware of or not interested in the Covid breaches.

I'm jumping to an informed conclusion.

But certainly the soccer heads on social media, for what that is worth, seem to be vindicated that their hard work isn't being punished

all club championships should be knockout to cut down on time no need for group stages and backdoor systems this year.

No they shouldn't.
Half the 2500 or so clubs getting 1 game in the year = madness.
Division 2 Champions and Connacht Champions (Minor)

League games?

The best club championship last year was in Tyrone and was straight knockout.

When was that "best club championship" title awarded, how was it decided and who had a vote?

Worst club teams in Ulster in fairness. So I’m struggling to see how this is the case
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

I suspect its heading that way alright.
Tom Ryan musing yesterday that the NFL and NHL might have to be dropped.
Add in the lack of protest from HQ about losing "elite" status and comments about being in no rush to resume activity etc.
Also a number of 2020 Club Championships unfinished.
Quite possibly end up with a Calendar of
May - finish 2020 Club Championships
June -August Club Championships
September - November Inter County.
Division 2 Champions and Connacht Champions (Minor)

Could be another wave in the autumn so I wouldn't count on it.
