David Clifford is a terrific player but he is also some specimen of an athlete its clear no expense was spared in developing him from a sports science perspective, he is like something Rocky would encounter on a trip to Russia.

i would actually agree with you on Croke Park, there is no point denying it, playing there is an advantage to Dublin. The only way to rectify that would be to take semis and final out of Croke park, personally i wouldn't have a problem with that. Elsewise, every county playing Dublin in Croke Park is playing away, Croke park is a part of Dublin and Dublin is part of Croke Park, the two will never be separated and we grow up here in its shadow and are as familiar with it as a walk down dollymount strand, in intrinsically a part of Dublin, like Killarney would be Kerry.

My own opinion is, its Dublin ground. The way i look at it all grounds are owned by the GAA even if administered by County boards, they are all under the authority of the GAA and every county play in their counties biggest, for Dublin that happens to be Croke Park. Its unfortunate for every other county but if the GAA decide to hold their biggest games there, that the scenario. Id have a bit of sympathy there to be fair."]You've been found out now so you'll try and throw Kerry under the bus to take the heat off your crowd but you do realize that Tralee IT and Kerry GAA are 2 different entities and even though Kerry GAA do from time to time use the IT's facilities they are actually separate and also Tralees IT's facilities are actually used by lots people from outside of Kerry.

Also Fitzgerald stadium is not owned by the GAA it's ownd by Killarney.

"Kerry have always produced footballers, David Clifford is another like men that went before him"

It's this exact reason why I dislike the Kerry mentality when it comes to football. Like ye think ye have the only footballers in the country with natural ability. That the likes of Clifford was just born kicking & soloing. That he hadnt been coached to within an inch of his young life. Do you realise how arrogant that sounds? There are so many great footballers in this country that will never get a chance to shine as they don't come from successful counties like Kerry or Dublin. Its infuriating watching posters from both counties going tit for tat when in reality both counties have it made. Both counties want for nothing. Both counties have amazing footballers.

Ive made my point, This has nothing to do with Dublin, their team, supporters, manager etc.
Its to do with the administration of the game.
Getting my excuses in early is just a throw away line that distracts from the debate.

I'm certain raise a massive amount of money themselves and they put into effect and executed a coaching plan years ago that didn't always involve spending money but lots of hard work from volunteers.

What would you say is a fair metric for distributing funds? If it was me I'd start at the bottom to try and improve standards there. Top counties get a lit of exposure and makes it easier to get decent sponsorship deals.

We are an amateur sport, I think funding from central council should go to the weak and not the strong.
If a county is receiving millions from sponsorship then this should be taken into account when central council funding is distributed.
If a county is being provided with access to a stadium that they do not have to fund the upkeep of then this should also be taken into account.
Our game is being ruined by the imbalance in funding between the strong and the weak and if we want better games with more opportunities for other counties to win Sam some day then i think a fairer approach is required. #lastpostonsubject.

From what I've read nobody from Kerry mentioned David Clifford it was actually username that brought him up.

Clifford is an amazing footballer and like all amazing footballers from Kerry he works hard at his craft.

It wasn't username. It was a direct quote from Westkerry. All amazing footballers work hard at their craft. Believe it or not it's not a Kerry thing.

Replying To Kurt_Angle:  "Bit harsh on Donegal, Tyrone and / or Galway last year (Roscommon game was a dead rubber for both). Would you honestly describe them as "hopeless"?"
Hopeless may be harsh but there is no All Ireland caliber team there. Any team with designs on an All Ireland should be beating those teams at home easily. And before anybody jumps on it I know Kerry were worse than all of the above last year.

If you look back to the previous page you'll see it was username that brought Clifford into the conversation and westkerry only replied by saying we have always producedbrilliant footballers, what exactly is wrong with that statement? Did he tell a lie?

We've just put a down payment on the new diamond encrusted, titanium wheeled team coach, complete with crystal chandeliers. The development funds are spent. I'll pass you the number for AIG. They're good for a few bob.

For the record kerry shouldn't be getting big funds off Croker. If I ran the GAA I would be biased towards the weaker counties. Any team that has won the all Ireland within the last 5 years would get the least per capita. If the football was competitive like the hurling is now with 5 or 6 genuine contenders rather then 1 then attendances would be huge. Sponsorship and tv money higher. This would result in far more revenue for the association. Instead they'd rather give Dublin 17m and the other 31 about the same to split between them.

It's a shameless system and has severely damaged the games. It also damages forums like hoganstand. Activity around here has plummeted since the turkey shoots began.

Don't agree at all.

GAA development funding is for juvenile coaching and development. It should be spent in the way that produces the greatest number of future Gaelic footballers.

Performance in the football championship shouldn't really come into it.

It takes about 10-15 years for development money to bear fruit if you think about how long it takes to bring through a juvenile to senior level.

Who knows what the competitive landscape would be like in 15 years time.

Look at Armagh around the late 90s to early 200s won an All Ireland and were consistent challengers at that stage.

Meath, Galway were up there too. Meath are way back in the pack and Galway have only recently reemerged.

Under your metrics those counties wouldn't be getting so much, or Monaghan, Tyrone, Mayo currently. How can you say that would help competitiveness in any way.

I have a huge problem with penalizing success. Where's the incentive to get your structures right if you know you're going to have less ability to fund them then once you do.

This whole fairness, competitive balance stuff is pure childish, communist, nice sounding tripe that shouldn't be how an organization runs itself in this day and age.

Absolutely spot on!
