What is clear is that at least a small part of Ulster is saying no again. In terms of numbers or clout, it is hard to know how strong the resistance to paying the player grants is, but those opposed to any truck with Government money will get plenty of oxygen as other GAA news is pretty thin on the ground.

In fairness, a sizeable chunk of Ulster GAA supporters are entirely consistent on this one -- they have opposed almost everything contentious over the last decade.
