Laois / Re: The future of laois hurling
« on: July 22, 2017, 10:05:51 PM »
Good post Tobias.
First thing IMO would be to get some hurling men into key county board positions. At the moment the Chair, Sec & Treasurer are all from exclusive football clubs.
Hurling clubs need to organise and get good people into key positions.

Town you drag this forum into the gutter with this ongoing goading of Tony.
Everyone has different opinions ..
Can you not just make your point ONCE and leave it at that like other posters ..

The only thing we can all agree on is that Laois Football is a mess and will take a long time to remedy ..

To be fair, it does appear to be working both ways.

Accusations against nobody in particular is just hearsay lads. Idle gossip without foundation. Pitiful. Is it better to be on the panel and drinking or not on the panel at all? Welcome to Laois, the home of bitterness. I'd say town180 could point us in the direction of one or two disgruntled punters. Is he one himself? Good luck with campaign lads. Creedon out. Creedon out. Creedon out.

Campaign? You are getting worse and worse.
Spouting nonsense and changing the subject with every post.

Agree with Tony. It didn't happen. These lads give more samples than Usain Bolt. It would have shown up.

GAA players are tested regularly for alcohol consumption?!

This is getting more and more funny & bizarre as the post goes on!

A respected man stands up and makes these accusations at a CB meeting, but it didn't happen.

High Fielder ventures between "suspend them now they were mean to Poor Peter" and "it never happened at all".

How ANYBODY can think that naming amateur players online is appropriate I do not know!

And High Fielder- what did I jumble up? The County Board suspending players over a managers head for this sort of thing. You haven't a notion what you are talking about!

I don't know who they are. If I did, I would go to my nearest CB member and ask that they be suspended from the panel for at least six months

So if for instance,  I was the next manager of Laois Senior Football team, I would have disciplinary matters that didn't happen on my watch investigated and sentenced by random supporters?
This is about the craziest notion I've ever encountered from a GAA fan.

No. If the CB were interested in doing things properly, they would suspend these players. Just like most counties will. Tipp did it earlier in the year and proper order.

A couple of posts ago it was at your insistence.
Again, your apparent lack of insight into how teams (at any level- let alone intercounty) comes to the fore.
The Tipperary CB suspended nobody. The Tipperary SENIOR HURLING MANAGEMENT temporarily dropped players from their squad for repeated breaches.
Managements run their squads. No manager would stand for CBs jumping in to discipline players in this manner.

All year long, there has been a little cohort on here giving out about everything Peter Creedon has tried to do. It looks like now he didn't know four panel members were drinking. Good luck getting lads to an inter county standard of fitness when they're swilling pints. Honestly lads, you trip yourselves up over and over again. You either want it done right or you tolerate amateurism in what is now a very professional environment

Poor Peter, he didn't know.
If they had any respect for him they wouldn't have been doing it in the first place.
Poor Peter. Light a candle for him on your way home from your neighbourhood county board member's house!

Jesus lads not a hope anyone on an anonymous forum should be publicly naming an amateur sportsman for anything. Or.....put your own name beside the players name if you really feel the need.

Agreed 100%. I don't know who they are, but I'm sure if I really wanted to find out, I could. Here is not the place for naming anybody.
Whoever the next manager is will know this happened. No doubt he will be able to find out who was involved. It is his decision whether these players are given another chance or not.
Lots of players up and down the country have pricked around at various stages of their career and came back from it.
Dealing with something like this in-house is nothing to be ashamed of.
Sometimes the sense of entitlement among GAA supporters amazes me.
The players will be given another chance or discarded. Either way there are consequences. A decent management set up will see to that.

Also suggesting that a supporter approaches players socially and castigates them for drinking or behaving in an improper manner is absolutely crazy.

I have no idea who they are. I will suspend all contributions to Laois GAA until I do. What did you do with the information BA? Nothing also?

You would really want to get a grip. What are you going to do with the information?

Theres a bit of a difference saying lads were out drinking some random night and specifically stating 4 members of the first team were on the lash  a few nights before a match.


There is a difference.
Get specific on a board like this and you will be called a coward because it's anonymous. I don't see how he could have justified giving any more detail on here.

Mick Lawlor is being eulogised for saying what Town1980 was ridiculed for saying.

No offence to Lawlor, and I agree with him, but those trotting out every excuse under the sun to shift blame from Creedon & Co have gone awful quiet.
He failed, badly. He may not be as bad as he appeared here, but the level of failure he achieved can't be rewarded with a second chance.
Poor fitness, poor discipline and an inability to beat some of the poorest teams in the country. Not good enough. Thanks and we'll take a different direction.

That old saying about the definition of insanity comes to mind......

In fairness to her and Ballypickas, it was a problem that wasn't of their making.
Really it was an administrative error. The fixture should never have been made.

Looking forward to the Longford game. Great to give support to up and coming young lads in the county. These lads are the ones we really need to nurture on now. I like the management set up with Dempsey too. Talks a lot of sense. Sure to be a bigger challenge compared to Louth match but will be interesting to see the new prospects play a competitive game.

What's the management team?
Same as minors I thought. Who Dempsey is I dont know.

That's what I thought, and that's why I was wondering!

Laois / Re: Laois Minor football Championship
« on: July 11, 2017, 11:41:08 AM »
It's a crazy setup. The players who havent been involved with the Laois teams are getting 5/6 games max all year - and then they wonder why they're losing players at this age. Some are getting even less than that.  Absolute joke

Changing the grades to U17 would bring about a major improvement in this. U17 grade could proceed throughout the year, unaffected by adult games.
At present minor games are held up by u16 games and all divisions of ACHL & ACFL & championships. Impossible to schedule a decent number of games around all of this.

BUT minor shouldn't be straight knockout.
At least they have pushed the games back a little. Last year there were preliminary rounds played 3-4 days after the leaving cert.
