Star games

(Oldest Posts First)

well done Monaghan county board.what a way to ruin everything! if Monaghan win we are going to have a flood of star games .
very unfair on clubs with 3 or 4 players on the county panel.
as much as we are all so happy with the countie's success,CLUB COMES FIRST!
small clubs are been heavily penalised.Currin for instance have 3 players on the County panel, have a very small pick and may well now struggle to field never mind be competative.its even unfair on the other club players who have busted themselves in training to remain competative and will now have to play in a much weakened side with limited chance of success.
im sure other clubs are in the same position but i am also sure that other clubs with no county players are delighted.
either way the leagues are now tarnished.

Yeah, totally agree. Basically they have handed these players a 4 week suspension for being on the county panel. You must remember that for a club like Currin for example these are their three best players. So all the clubs with no county panel members got to vote on weakening their opposition by pushing them closer to the relegation zone while helping themselves out of it ( if they are in it or close to it ). It really is pathetic stuff from the county board. Talk about Turkeys voting Christmas !!.

Obviously anyone now winging about clubs now able to use their county players just don't have any and now might take the drubbing they were hopeing to avoid.

From what is said among clubs this was all set up, calling a special meeting with little notice, some board members stayed away, some did not vote i hear, mick and sean got their way again. remember when it comes to voting at year end.
