Time to silence whingers and implement new culture of respect in GAA

Implementing a culture of real respect in Gaelic football would be a great service for the game’s young players, including U-10 Community Games competitors Eoghan Hartin (Erne Valley, Co Cavan) and Eric Stritch (Monaleen, Co Limerick)

Maybe it is the warm weather this summer but, for whatever reason, there seems to be an inordinate amount of whingers on the Gaelic football scene this year.

All sorts of people – players, managers, spectators, media commentators and even county board officers – have felt free to say anything they like about all sorts of topics involving football games and their consequences.

And there is nearly always one basic theme running through the negativity – they emanate from people attached to losing teams. We seldom hear winning players or managers complaining too much after a game.
