People just don't appreciate what actually has been going on.

Can you imagine if Brian Cody stepped down from the job in Kilkenny and his replacement turned out to be a disaster in terms of performance and professionalism. After 2 years of failure the Kilkenny players wouldn't stand idly by and waste another year of their lives hoping for things to improve.

Cork Secretary of 30+ years Frank Murphy treated the players with contempt during the process of manager selection and only the people of Cork would be aware of the dictator that Frank Murphy is.

Opinions outside of Cork are of no relevance whatsoever.
Dead right there DS.
Hes an administrator.
A good one.
But he lets his controlfreak tendency take over the whole Cork situation.
Remember when he was on the sidelines deciding who would be brought on.
That was the selectors job not his.

dont you just have to respect a county that takes all aspects of its sporrting.cultural life so seriously? and expects the rest of the country to be interested -which in fairness they apparently are-judging by the amount of coverage the infamous strike etc got

To be eligible to play for a county team, one's name must be on the team list signed by the County Secretary. In GAA rules the word "manager" or "selector" does not appear. The manager and selectors are proxies for the County Chairman and Secretary.

"Cork Secretary of 30+ years Frank Murphy treated the players with contempt during the process of manager selection and only the people of Cork would be aware of the dictator that Frank Murphy is."

Who appointed Frank Murphy? Was it the democratically elected Cork County Board?

"Opinions outside of Cork are of no relevance whatsoever."

Not true. Cork are permitted to play in inter-county competition only with the permission of the higher authorities of the GAA. If a Cork County team is not clearly seen to be under the control of the Cork County Board and especially its Chairman and Secretary the GAA has a right to refuse to allow Cork to take part in inter-county competition.

The GAA Central Council has been far too indulgent. When a manager resigns because of threats, it is time to exclude that county from all competition until its County Board are clearly seen to be in total control of all GAA affairs within that county.

I am a member of the GAA and my views on the matter are of much more relevance that the views of anyone in Cork who is not a member of the GAA.
We in the GAA can do without ever so clever college breeds from Cork who think they can push us around. Now run off to your rugger club.
Now continue to feck off... its a one way street...... that way

G'wan away. The players have been proven right; it was falling ever further and ever faster behind because Frank's dead hand was clamped around Cork's throat.

Now look. They're long retired, but he's still there destroying Cork. And you wonder why we fail, with J. Edgar Hoover with a combover and a pioneer pin stopping any progress?

It's not quite as simple as that. The last strike was completely wrong because it was called simply to get rid of Gerald. That was petty. According to Donal Og's book, himself, and I think John Gardner were not in favour of the strike but were outvoted by the younger members of the panel.

Still the Cork County Board has to take a large share of the responsibility. After the players had told them at the end of Gerald's term that they didn't want him again, the CCB asked them if they minded if the CCB placed Gerald's name on the list of candidates. Incredibly, the players said they didn't mind. (The selection committee consisted of two players and three CCB members.) How stupid can you be? But that doesn't excuse the County board.

The players careers are over, Mc,Carthy is tainted by the dispute, Cork GAA damaged irreparably. One big winner. Mr. Murphy gets his own way again.

This was spot on. (Posted in Jan 2009).

I honestly think the footballers are on the way back. Very promising displays against Kerry and Dublin whom very few will beat, anyway. Getting out of Division 3 next year is vital.

The hurlers have definitely gone backwards. They seem to be sadly lacking in motivation. I'm hoping that the appointment of a new manager may fix that. The new county board secretary at least has the county's best interests at heart, not his own.
