Replying To neverright:  "To pinpoint a young player from an All-Ireland final like this is in poor taste. I'm sure you could have found examples at senior level to make your point."
I clarified your point above..I probably could have used a senior example...

Replying To StoreysTash:  "Good players are often greedy. They have to be. I was always a fan of having a go myself. There is a me in team too."
great to have a go and it works out..if it doesn't and someone else was in a better position and didn't get the pass (if they could have) that player would rightly be p*ssed off if they lost the game especially in the dying minutes of a game..I remember an incident in Wexford Park late 80's I think when a neibhouring county player walloped his own team mate for not passing the ball and he got sent off!! Look you need someone to have a go too..its not meant to be personal against any player..maybe I should have called the post "when to lay off the right pass"...great to see Davy Fitz staying with ye..hopefully ye will push on and win a Leinster even..its a bit all over the shop with Galway in Leinster and Kilkenny transiton...
