2019 Limerick 'Green Machine' Jersey.

(Oldest Posts First)

That's an amazing jersey. JP doesn't want a sponsor on it recognising the teams status as All Ireland champions. A touch of class.

Class. JP is some man. Limerick are lucky to have him.

Have we just seen the start of the green machine in hurling to match the blue machine in football?

So all the other counties with sponsor's name's on their shirts have no class? But Limerick, sponsored by multi-millionaire J. P. McManus are above the rest.

Yes, you classless cat. that's exactly what he meant...

Maybe read the post again. Slowly this time, without looking for something to be outraged by.

No that's not what I meant. Limerick have the option due to the generosity and wealth of their sponsor to have a jersey with no advert or sponsor on it. To imply that I meant the Likes of Kilkenny or Clare or Tipp don't have class is pedantic and ridiculous

Well, if having no sponsor is a touch of class. Doesn't that statement imply that having a sponsor is not a touch of class? If having a sponsor is also a touch of class, then how is having no sponsor any different?

Unless the point being made was a very meek and inoffensive "All counties have a touch of class, regardless of whether they've a sponsor on their jersey or not"

"Touch of class" has lost all meaning in my head now and sounds weird.

It was the meek and inoffensive part. But now what I'm saying is that Limericks elegant and timeless jersey without the sponsor on the front is now the best GAA jersey. I'm throwing it out there.

Ah I don't really get as worked up over these things as my post might suggest, I'm just (as you guessed) a pedant and have a love of logic in my heart.

Whether it's classy or not, it's a nice change to a jersey, and especially nicer for Limerick to be in so good a financial position that they can afford to forgo a sponsor.
