That has not at all been helped by the fact of the Clubs in Cork not standing up to and dealing with that problem long before now - whether it's by way of Club Delegates voting by a show of hands on their own stead or having to make split moment decisions on stuff at Co Board Meets which might be contrary to what the wishes of their Clubs would be in a majority sense-
There are no delegates of clubs on County Committees. There are representatives of clubs on some County Committees. Representatives have a right to do their own thing but, of course, for the next year, a club has a right to appoint a different representative.
The basic problem is that county players have become too big for their trousers. And they are parasites on the GAA - and seem to be totally unaware of same.
A team which is not totally under the control of a County Board has no right to be taking part in inter-county competition.
