The votes are counted and managers are not going to be paid. Did anyone seriously think it would be any other way?



This is like the band playing on while the Titanic went down -- the GAA similarly operates in a make-believe world. Of course everyone can say this is what happens when the masses get a vote but this vote and many more in the GAA are an exercise in hypocrisy not democracy.

The only sure thing about this is that the agreement to retain the status quo when it comes to paying managers will be ignored in exactly the same way as other decisions made in the last few years.
