Replying To GreenandRed:  "That going 6 points up and keeping the ball away from whatever team they're playing sounds like a crazy idea if you want to win a football match. The giving the ball to the team their playing, when they're 6 points up, sounds like a much better plan indeed. Those bad auld nasty patronising Dublin footballers."
I know.....imagine like? Crazy stuff altogether.

All these counties giving out about Dublin's boring style of play and crying about lack of funding haven't cottoned on that all you need to do today is get together the best group of athlete's in your county (Gaelic footballers preferred but not essential), a couple of big brutal enforcers for centerfield, teach them first how to catch a tennis ball, when they're used of that a big white ball will be child's play, employ a strength and conditioning coach, a part time dietitian and last but not least, the main man, the basketball coach.

Hone the dying art of palming your goals and fisting your points in from two yards, a good hoofer to knock over your frees and before long you'll be deemed the best team ever to play the game.

And sure look if the lads haven't the ability or the confidence to take a 99% shot on don't worry about it, let them retreat back to there own half, throw the ball around like shelf stackers throw loaves of bread to each other and start again.

If you come under pressure of a mass press just hoof the ball over the top of them and give your team a 50/50.

The whole world will come to a standstill on All-Ireland final day to marvel at these unbelievably skillful Irish men, from Brazil to Germany, Italy and Spain, we'll be the envy of the world. It will be the number one game on the planet in no time.

Ye have it all wrong lads, just copy the best team ever. :-).

To be fair, labelling someone biased means you're not really taking what they say seriously.

Rugby ? Ah no, nothing beats Gaelic football and the best thing about it is if the result doesn't go your way you can count on the supporters to trot onto the pitch accost the ref and demand a replay, you know the craic yourself, Louth 2010 and all that.

Who would want that high level game of rugby, full of grumpy old self appointed historians and retired school teachers, feck that.

You'd never get any of those auld farts in the Gah, would you. :-).

I don't. And I don't know which is worse.:Individual posters having multiple usernames or a single username having multiple personalities, which seems to be your case.
