Replying To BreffniGuide:  "Well here's a 15 so going on who I believe is in there....

Galligan

Killian Brady
Faulkner
McLoughlin

Gerry Smith
Brady
Rehill

Conor Brady
Evan Fortune

Niall Murray
Martin Reilly
Ryan Connolly

Conor Smith
Conor Madden
Andy Graham/Enda Flanagan

Flanagan or Graham to add a bit of speed up top and keep defenders guessing.

I think that team is good enough to get us out of Division 2 and is on the basis Gearoid, who would be on the 40, and James Smith, who would be midfield, are injured. I'd also like to see Patrick Lynch and Caoimhin O'Reilly but believe both of those are injured."

In what way will they keep defenders guessing?

Guessing they aren't gonna get the ball and kick it over the bar.

They are quick. Corner backs and full backs are getting used to marking tall men that the ball is pumped into. They would offer a different alternative to a bigger man like Madden if rotating with him in and out of full forward position.

Usain bolt is quick aswell.

A few more players have apparently left the panel. Cavan will be fighting relegation rather then promotion it looks.

Conor Rehill'

They should just name a full panel for Mckenna Cup, would stop the speculating.

Well if you commit in year 1 and dont in year 2 you are wasting your counties time and your own time. To be a county footballer you need to commit for a prolonged period.

They can't. Colleges get first pick.

Is there a rule you have to commit for a Long period of time? No

Where did I say there was a rule. Try keep up. It's just a pity that someone who is willing to make a long term commitment missed out last year so that a player could collect his county gear tor 1 seasons effort.

The Sigerson starts on 12th of Janurary. Cavan would haveplayed the 2 Mckenna Cup games played by then, why would the Colleges have first pick when not in the competition?

I would say there is no rule at all. Those that came in and tried probably just did not like the set up and the demand so decided that it's not for them. A good call from anyone that does. Priority to each individual man or woman is to get your education first for the GAA don't give a rats ass about you after they have burnt you out.
In defense of Dara McVitty he made it clear middle of the year that he was taking a six month career break to travel and good for him for there is more to life than GAA. If the present management cannot respect that they are in the wrong job. It's yourself before the GAA not the GAA before yourself. End off.

Yeh, it clearly is yourself before GAA. That's working really well for us isn't it?

Of course we all do our bit for the game but in today's world you are going no place without an education. Don't for one second sit in front of your computer and tell me that the GAA care about you they do not. I have witnessed it first hand what the GAA do to players who they have burnt out ect. They ignore them they charge them to get into games many of them are struggling to make ends meet but do they care no they don't. Fecking referees are paid and they get free passes to get into most games is that fair??
For years I have seen quality players walk away not because they had not got the commitment but because of their type of work or studies, they were given no choice yes no choice by management so the majority decided they will play for their clubs but not the county. I watched grown men and ladies cry because they had to walk away over an individual that did not have man/woman management.
Just an observation or a point of view TELL me how many managers have done man/woman management, maybe it's time when bringing managers in that they understand what player management is as well. Something for the GAA need to think about. I will put fully paid coaching in that bracket as well. People do training courses have any of them done player management anger management discipline management the list goes on. I could write a book on this alone.
Tell me what incentive is there for any young lad or girl to give up their social life for what I ask ? tell me for what???
Cavan had quality players but did not know how to hold onto them it's that simple I know from experience.
Names have been mentioned here of people that either walked away despite their potential or were left go for one reason or another. Did it ever cross your mind to ask the player's themselves why they are not in on the panel, TRY it some DAY, if they are honest with you let me tell you that you will be surprised.
At the end of the day the player get's nothing financially as they are amateur's what do the management get ????
Come on you want players to commit look after them it's that simple.

Last year you were blaming "player power" for all our woes. Today it's the big bad "GAA"

There is no consistency to anything you say on here, it's all mindless bluster.

Did I post last year did you miss me. Try and locate that last post for when I posted that specific post it was player power . I am now replying to a post as to why players will not commit to training 6 day's a week for it's impossible if one is trying to get an education hold down a part time job to earn money for themselves while at college. Fredflint you enjoy confronting me but yet you fail to meet me when I call you out.
If you are or were involved in some way or another you know what I am writing is correct. I went back to college to get my degree between 2008 and 2012 so I understand how hard it is for youngsters to get an education and to be involved with the sport. It's near impossible with all you have to do with assignments studying ect too find time to train.

You mention player power it's ugly many on here will have experienced it in one way or another. It's hateful. I have witnessed it first hand so I know what it's like.
As I missed the majority of this year gone by due to illness I really cannot comment but the last two Cavan games I saw I could see the ugly side of it once again.
Happy xmas to most of you and I hope a prosperous New Year
