Weaker counties miss plot in rule changes
I have never ceased to be amazed that some so-called weaker counties in football pay so little attention to improving themselves, and yesterday's Special Congress reinforces this.
About half the 32 counties can be described as weak in football terms in that they hardly ever win a title of any significance except for the odd sortie through the qualifiers if the draw suits them.
Yesterday motions were passed to eliminate offences in football which are described in the new sanitised language of the GAA as 'highly disruptive'. To most GAA fans they are simply dirty and/or dangerous.
