Any harm in talking about the aesthetics of the game? Personally I find it great to watch. Seems to flow a lot better. No pulling and dragging, no blanket defences because of the mark. I say take out the behind posts and incorporate the rest of the rules into GAA football.

I think Ireland would do better with an Australian coach tbh.
Any time I watch International Rules I get the sense that the players are very hesitant and unsure of themselves.
They should at least understand the game they're playing.

Didn't see any of this but reading the Aussies' reaction on BigFooty it would seem the Irish lads were diving a lot.
Was it that bad?

Its one man against the world it seems. No logic to anyone argument.

There is no moderator on this site, thread should be closed.

There was none either when you called posters ignorant fools or words to that effect. So stop throwing your toys out of the pram when people hold a different opinion to you.

Yeah I stand by it too, there is a cabal of posters with a narrative on this site, it needs balance, unlike McGeaney 100K a year finding its way onto the Kildare balance sheet. You get me..

All you need to do is look at the Joe brolly thread to see what type of posters are on here...

Well I'm sure Jim Gavin's 150k is hidden behind one of your many sponsorship deals.

You get me?

cheap.

As everyone is aware, He doesn't take a penny, ask him yourself next time you see him, its well known in circles if you took your head out of the sand once in awhile.

Can you prove that?

And while you are at it can you send me a link to where it states that McGeeney was on 100k a year.

Don't disappear now.

Surely the onus is on you to prove he is being paid 150k.

This 'f**k the Begrudgers' stuff is starting to get on my tits. No matter what the subject is, if you voice any sort of disagreement, you are a begrudger. I've long ago given up watching this farce, but I understand and accept that others do, so be it. I'm not going to call them names for liking it.

f**k the begrudgers on Dublin
f**k the begrudgers on International Rules
f**k the begrudgers on Padraic Duffy
f**k the begrudgers on Martin O'Neill and his style of play
f**k the begrudgers on Conor McGregor
f**k the begrudgers on U2

ad infinitum

Jaysus it would wear you down. It would appear that all disagreement now is simply begrudgery. Do people actually know what 'begrudgery' is?
Unlike you to get rattled AZ. I agree with the begrudgery point but there's comes a point when "turn the channel" is a fair point.

Also, why do you feel the need to call it a farce?

It's not begrudgery to say you don't like the game. I said I don't watch it but I'm well aware others do and like it. No harm. I just don't like being told not liking it is begrudgery. 

As for why I call it a farce it's because
A it's not football
B it's not aussie rules
C it's only played a couple of times a year
D it doesn't seem to serve any purpose.

But that's just my opinion.  I know others disagree. Either way it's not begrudgery 😀

Itís not the disagreement AZ, itís the negativity from some of the posters on some of the topics.  Some people (not you by the way) invoke the doomsday scenario when any change is proposed. I am delighted that a sligo lad is on the team and i would never begrude the fact that he and the others have an opportunity to represent the country.
I fully understand this is not everyoneís cup of tea, hence the remote control comment. I donít like baseball, so i donít watch it - end of story..

What?!
Who?!

GAA Discussion / Re: Colm O'Rourke vs. the GPA
« on: November 13, 2017, 09:48:50 PM »
O'Rourke raised a few valid points alright and overall I am in broad agreement with him. But he has developed a habit of late that irritates me. You could call it the Swelled Head Syndrome.
I mean he takes it for granted that every one who reads his column already knows what happened between him and the GPA sometime in the past. There have been a few other instances of this as well but the present article is a good example of what I mean.
Take the following: "Hardly surprising that I am not on the GPA's mailing list but I am quite sure readers will be interested in at least some of the work of this body during 2016.
It is not altogether true that the GPA ignored me, or at least the Meath players of the past, this year."
WTF knows or cares what happened in the past? He is dealing with the present and shouldn't assume anything about what happened before now.
He assumes that his readership has been avidly reading his column and should be aware of whatever rows he's had with the GPA in the past.
A touch of the Tony Fearon style is beginning to show here. :D

Agreed. I for one haven't a notion of what he is on about in relation to past grievances.

Colm wrote an article critical of the GPA and a text was sent out to the membership telling them to go after him on social media.

Q why is he the only person in the mainstream media to address this ??

He doesn't need access to players for interviews.

Marc O'Sť is dead right.
No wonder ourselves and Dublin don't bother with this nonsense anymore.

Was listening to a rep from the ladies football players union recently and she said a merger would work well at club level, where everybody knows everyone else anyway, but she would be wary of how it would work at intercounty level.

The Kildare lads will be home within 6 months.
They'll miss their horses.

Just asking what was the point of it all? I doubt Jeff and Kammy will ever return to watch GAA,at their own expense.Both they and the likes of John Bishop had seats at the All Ireland Final at the expense of ordinary fans

How many times have you had a seat at the expense of ordinary fans?
