Replying To carlowman:  "Without good leadership a team will be rudderless. One of the current management team has been on media spouting essentially about himself as centre and how others have contributed to his suspension. Absolutely pathetic stuff. Its not about him !!!! The team is what is important. Let's get real now. Our senior footballers are an intelligent committed and above all else want to wear the county shirt with pride. They have ambition.They have been let down by the very people who should have been their leaders. Dress it up as passion or whatever you like but that is the real situation. Our players who have given up serious time have been dealt a body blow that needs to be lanced. It's a sad day if those managing our county do nothing to change those st the top on the basis of ' sure who else can we get to mind our team ' or money. Nobody will be told how much the current duo cost... nobody will be told that. Do you think thst one of those people is there because of the good of his health ? The behaviour that was reported by a few at the end of the Laois match if true, should be more than enough to close the current debate. Reports about that incident have not been out there in the printed media as it was so serious. There are standards that should be upheld by those who represent us and shockingly those standards have not been upheld. Occasionally the behaviour can be a one off response but if reports are true about the aftermath of the Laois game, then people need to be removed . Those people in positions of authority have duties that go beyond borders and when behaviour is outside of standards they should realise that and do the decent thing and resign. We have standards in Carlow. Players know those boundaries. Players have standards too. How can they have any respect when those boundaries have been broken on more than occasion ? How can they wear with pride the shirt afterwards? How can they stand in the circle shoulder to shoulder with those who have broken their standards and then go on the pitch and give it everything and even more ? I don't think they can. The bond has been broken, the link is beyond repair. Time for a new start. The players deserve good leadership. Those who have respect for the team should demand it as a matter of right"
Down 0-15 Carlow 1-11, does not do justice to the final result, Carlow needed that point to stay up in div.3, had they got THAT 0-01 or better still, if Down's last 0-01 been called back the game would have finished in a draw, Carlow would still be in div.3, there would be no unnecessary suspensions, there would be no character assassinations, in fact, Turlough O'Brien and his management team would be Heroes, - - - talk about contraversory.
