When he has achieved: Eight All-Ireland Senior Hurling, 12 Leinster Senior Hurling, 2 Leinster U21, 2 Leinster Minor, 5 National League, 2 All-Ireland Club, 3 Leinster Club, 3 Railway Cup, 4 County and 3 Fitzgibbon Cup medals, 10 All Stars and 27 goals and 471 points in championship play, he will be able to comment on what is or is not sportsman-like.
