This spending Donegal is doing in NY is crazy. What benefit is it doing for the future? It's being ruined

It's absolutely crazy and makes no sense at all. These individuals are living in fear of loosing so rather than train what they have they dump them and buy new players. This carry on gas reached a new high in the intermediate division. It will bring an end to the GAA and the officers will tell you that players are not getting compensated that it's only rumor.
The junior division showed some forsight in not allowing intercounty players into their division.
Right now we need a leader to stand up to these people and just put an end to this madness.

Very poor games over the weekend. Cork overcame a poor Barnabas team in the rain to get there first points. Tipp destroyed Galway in senior hurling. Kerry beat Monaghan by a point in a poor game and $longford destroyed. Cavan team that were favorites. Poor attendances it must be said. The park is finished because money is destroying football. We know the winners are always going to be the money teams.
We need new leaders to stand up to this and make a change very fast.

Some good games recently in Gaelic Park have really enjoyed some of the games, was at a lot of games and have seen a lot of players come from county teams and people that are living here full time. In my opinion the best two players I have seen on show so far is Jamie Clarke (Armagh) which is playing for longford and Stephen Coen (Sligo) for Sligo. Luke Loughlin (Westmeath) is very good also. Donegal have some good players but nothing like these three boys

The game on saturday night between Sligo and Brooklyn was a classic. Brooklyn up by 6 points with 15 mins to play and then went one point down but came back to win at the end by 1 point. Great game of football. Either of those two teams could win the IFC. Very very competitive championship this year.

Yeah whistler, should be 2 good matches in the park tomorrow night. Id be leaning towards Celtics in the first match and Barnabas in the 2nd. But think both matches will be tight. Hope the Senior Board have full crew to umpire, do lines and ref as lately matches have been going on with no crew outside the ref.

I think Sligo will do the business vs Rockland, but the 2nd match will be tight. Mayo can either totally dominate, or Westmeath will run them tight. Coin toss in that match imo. Also, think Ulster has to much for Waterford in the hurling.

I think Sligo will beat Rockland with ease and I hear that Westmeath will be missing alot of players sunday so if they are I will give the nod to Mayo. Sligo and Longford will be tight but give that to Longford as they just have too much talent and then Cavan to beat Mayo in the semi final. Longford to beat Cavan easily in the final. That is my predictions. Alot of teams will be happy brooklyn didnt make the playoffs beat sligo and ran Longford very close on Monday night left themselves too much to do losing games earlier in the year. Rangers. Kerry and Tyrone were never init. Tyrone really need to go down to Junior A as they havent won a game in two years now. Has been as competitive a division as we thought it would be at the start of the year. I give monaghan a squeak for the Junior A this year.

I hear Sligo and Mayo are struggling to field teams this weekend as all the summer players they had out are gone home. One would have to question why teams spend money during the first phase off the championship and then give up come the playoffs. I personally fancy westmeath to win it. Kirby, Cunnife and Conroy are way too good for this standard.

If westmeath can hold it together then they can definitely run Longford close. I find it hard to believe that sligo are actually struggling to field as they have had 25 men at every game this year.

How many off the 25 were legit?

Yea, sligo are meant to be cutting it tight to get a team for sunday. Rockland may come away with a result. Westmeath to win the other semi final easy but i cant see past Longford for the whole competition.

It'd be great if longford played Donegal in a one off game after they win both of the championships. It would draw a huge crowd
