Storey in the Independent

(Oldest Posts First)

Anyone read the article/discussion in todays independent? Making lads choose at 14??? I'm no lover of football, but lads need to have a chance to make an educated decision if they want to even choose one sport over the other. His point of view explains the duel player problem at under-age in the county while he was with the minors.

Absolutely disgusting. Anyone with views like that, I want them nowhere near any Wexford underage set up. "Football is the main thing killing us". I'm absolutely disgusted by his comments in the paper today.

Icehonesty, it might disgust you, ( and any fair-minded GAA person in wexford ) but it shouldnt surprise you. Mr storey has "previous" concerning football during his time with the minors.

lads,storey was wrong to say that but he is not advocating nobody play football like you seem to be making out.but also,i was talking to a wexford football legend at the weekend,who i will not name,who said he coming around to the thinking the same way.he said its 17 years since we won a national title of any note at adult level,and he doesnt want to see another 2-3 cycles of football and hurling players go through their careers without winning anything.i am sure there are others in football circles who would support this logic.
and also lads,its just 1 mans opinion,the article was about hurling and about how to improve hurling.i have no time for martin storey whatsoever as he had a minor team last year which he was tactically naive on the line and cost us a leinster final.i have checked the offaly page and there is nothing about dathi regans comments.will ya ever relax.

Perfect10. No, won't relax, sorry pal. Whether a football man wants all young players to play only football, or a hurling man young lads to only play hurling, they're plainly wrong. I don't think it's appropriate that a guy who was in charge of the county's best under-18 hurlers should be going around talking rubbish like this. I don't want someone with such a bad attitude coaching our players, sorry.
