I'd say very likely that a few of the Donegal lads will be here this summer. It's hard to pass on offers like that.

It seems to be very quiet in the New York front so far. Rumours that two senior teams may be in trouble and at least one intermediate team also.
Surprised that numerous meetings are not being held by the combined football sections to discuss matter.
It seems that there will be only three teams again this year in the senior hurling section.

Heard much the same thing. That would leave 3 senior teams??

we will see what will be done. but judging by the comments underneath, people in Ireland obviously don't understand the size of the problem we have with players being paid in NYC

Do you know what the new proposals are ? Did not hear of any being put forward by the NY meetings.

I believe there proposals from Croke Park not here. If something isn't done then not too many clubs will able to afford senior football. To be a top team your looking at spending 150k

The proposals Padraic Duffy is on about were brought forward by a number of clubs at North American Convention, namely to increase the number of homebase on the field from 5 to 6, move the last date for registering from July 20th to July 1st and any guy named on an inter county championship panel can't get a sanction while his county are still involved in the championship, these were brought forward as a result of the shenanigans in Chicago last year which led to the John McBrides being banned for 54 weeks

The issue is a lot more widespread than I'd think Croke Park knows. I find it comical that people are worried about senior dying unless players are bought from home. If time and effort were put in "home grown" players, they'd be playing senior. The lot back home don't care about American's playing. Why would they, I guess. But I'd want to go out on a Sunday and see a well contested match, the lads playing for their club. I just enjoy watching a good match, regardless of who takes the pitch. If we want to continue paying players, why not just go professional, sure we're just kidding ourselves by calling it amateurism. Professionalism didn't kill football or rugby.

Well said Kilflynn but unfortunately there not well contested games anymore. It's a test to see which club is the most craziest at spending money. If the rules don't change this year then NY football will be outa business soon

Honestly guys, this gets talked about every year and nothing comes of it. If anything, it would take a serious motion from Croke Park in order to stop this pay for play. I've been watching football in this town for a very long time and its gone on the whole time. Why is anyone surprised? Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for developing the minor board talent here and it should have been something done years and years ago when the minor board was flourishing with numbers, but there aren't that many kids around after u16s. A few teams need to combine in order to compete at u18s and u21s. This is something that the board should be more concerned about, supporting the minor board and Americans coming up so we as an organization are not held to players coming out to fill ranks. I would never want to stop kids coming out from Ireland for the summer the right to play, but the money aspect just ruins it and makes it uncompetitive. Just my 2 cents.

Would like to know what players are on the New York football team squad ? How many of the players who came through the NY minor ranks are on the squad ?
Thanks.

It's a big panel this year from what I heard. A lot of new players have arrived since our championship ended. So panel is strong. I'd say there's a good few yanks on panel.

Same from what I'm hearing Cross. From talking to a couple people in the know, the squad still hasn't been cut down to team numbers, so the training and things are going strong. Hopefully the 2 matches against Donegal will stand to them also. Think team will be sorted out by end of the month.

Got to see the training session today. Huge squad. Two players from the minor ranks were pointed out to me as were thirteen players who have yet to play and football in NY . Surprised that imports are being allowed for the NY team.

Seems to be mostly football being discussed on here but just wondering does anyone know when the hurling teams start back training? Also would any teams train on Randall's Island or are they all up around gaelic park?

Heard things are very positive from the NY panel. Same management as last year with same trainer. What i noticed last year there was very very little talk coming from the camp and I think that is what they wanted so again I don't expect to hear to much in terms of team or squad selection before the donegal games. They surprised a lot of people last year and I personally am really looking forward to seeing how we compete against donegal in april and then the big one against Sligo in may. Been living in this town since mid 80's and would love to see NY get their first championship win in 2017.
