good that you started this thread - hope we'll have a good season, with plenty of surprises.
As no one has started one so i will start it, it's a new era with changes to both the football and hurling championship, can Mayo or any other stop Dublin doing 4 in a row in football, can Galway retain the LMC cup.
He has not being on here for months, he said at the time he was going away for a while, u would miss him and Sean Lemass as wellgood that you started this thread - hope we'll have a good season, with plenty of surprises.
wonder what happened to 'Fullforward', who started & regularly contributed to the 2017 thread.
haven't seen him post here for a long time.
he was a nice guy - hope he's ok.
Too good knowledgeable posters on the GAA threads , they will be missed.He has not being on here for months, he said at the time he was going away for a while, u would miss him and Sean Lemass as well
Especially Sean Lemass, he mantained a couple of years aago that Dublin would NEVER be involved in negative football like fouling players to stop them scoring a goal etc., what would be his vew on all the shenaginans that both teams engaged in at the end of last yeas football final.Too good knowledgeable posters on the GAA threads , they will be missed.
Won't have long to wait before we see some action with the leagues starting earlier this year.
Although I would suspect there will be more shadow boxing than even usual when it comes to the league this year , especially the hurling where the championship starts so early. I reckon a lot of teams will be training even harder than usual through the league campaign as every team will have to have their act together by early may or they could be gone by early June.
Not even the length of page two hahaEspecially Sean Lemass, he mantained a couple of years aago that Dublin would NEVER be involved in negative football like fouling players to stop them scoring a goal etc., what would be his vew on all the shenaginans that both teams engaged in at the end of last yeas football final.

A strange situation so any footballer celebrating this year has being baned from Inter County competitions, is this not unlawfull due to age discrimination
What the feck were Derry playing at? this is about player protection.No it's not age discrimination to have different ages eligible for different competitions
Youngster named on Derry team for McKenna Cup wasn't allowed to play because of GAA rule
Basically Derry were trying to play an ineligible player
Brown is under 17 so under 17s can't play in adult competition yet now he is over the age of minor
He can play under 20 so will have some intercounty GAA this year
The change of grade from under 21 to 20 is new
The rule about 17 yr olds and adult games is not so should not come as a shock to anyone
17 yr olds could play under 21 though and it's the same at under 20
I think it only took effect in 2018Mad that Derry didn't know the rules
Yes that is why the 17 yr olds are not allowed to play adult football
Between school, their own age group, hurling and football and intercounty players can be out the bones of 5 out of 7 days in a week
Yet the GAA are getting accussed as being backward again on social media for Brown not being left play
Officially It is the ladies Gaelic Football association , there is no such thing as ladies GAA. But that is neither here or there.What is wrong with what i wrote as the ladiea GAA is a different association from the he GAA
