Kildare pay heavy price for forfeiting home advantage

I HAVE always said that money talks in the GAA and was there ever a better example of that than the agreement of the Kildare County Board, presumably with the nod from the county team mentors and players, to switch what would have been a home game in Newbridge for their league meeting with Dublin to Croke Park?

It was reported that Kildare were offered €60,000 to switch the match. I wonder how their loyal supporters, who are among the most dedicated in the country, feel about the decision this morning.

On the pitch, it all ended up as something of a disaster for Kildare and it is really hard to understand how this team and their players can play so well so often but then collapse like a pack of cards when a lot is expected of them.
