Tattoos On Cavan Gaa Players

(Oldest Posts First)

Tomsmith here

I just see a thing that I feel needs nipped in the bud and that is the obscene display of artwork on players arms on some the Cavan football Club teams. I feel that this sort of thing is more associated with a particular type of supporter(across Channel) who views going to games as an outlet for being loud and abusive to other fans. I always remember the first Man with a Tattoo that I saw was a man returning from being on the Boats. He was described as a mind boggling bore about al the big Cities he seen ( all be it from the water) and the rough seas he endured. He had all his arms covered in art work ,, Well I hope the Gaa clamp down on this obscene display ... I see Love across the fingers of players or on the arms art like ...Love Mary... or Breffni for Ever...or the old hammer and sickle or Harp seems to be a favourite

I'd nip in here occasionally to see what's troubling the great man and he rarely disappoints.
This hasn't gone quite as anticipated so a revisit to the divisional teams issue could be on the cards.

I just wonder could the Gaa Referee be part of the solution if he were t say to a player cover up (Send him to the line ) ie these Tattoos covered as the may cause a distraction to opposition players trying to read " LOVE MARY" HATE or indeed to see fellows with Ex partners or indeed one fellow had his ex Wife's name badly embossed with a message to all new suitors attached.

Let the Gaa at County level be a forerunner in curtailing this obscene display of artwork before it gets out of hand excuse the pun

I see that that the Irish Government is prohibiting a lot of the Ink used in Tattoos .
Perhaps if the would ban a lot of the words used it would also be beneficial.
A lot of the stuff on players bodies is a distraction to other [players
