West div debacle.

(Oldest Posts First)

Can any forum user shed some light on the expulsion of a number of clubs due to their refusal to play hurling matches as they have dual player? Personally it is shocking the way the West board are behaving. We should be supporting our footballers and bending over backwards to make sure they are in the best possible condition to take on Mayo. I cannot believe how backward some people in this county are.

Clubs wouldn't play without county players.
Why is the way the west board behaved shocking? The games in question fall outside of the 13-day rule that can invoked by county team managers in relation to the use of their players so clubs refusing to play should be sanctioned.
The county board are not backwards thinking at all with decision like this.
The county board have helped gaelic a lot more than they did in the past but what about the dozens of players who don't play county who are affected by a decision to postpone games until the county are finished? What about the majority who don't and never will play county?

Why should all these club players be stopped from playing because of a few players when its not within the regulated time county management can order players not to play clubs?
