Replying To Crinigan:  "He hasn't a clue.

Of course O Rourke was keeping his place, he's one of best GK in Ireland. We now have a novice who is trying his best in difficult circumstances and a 40 year old who plays midfield for his club's second team as our goalkeepers. And he thinks Ireland's GK for 2 compromise rules series would be dropped for those 2? As I say, hasn't a clue and just being bitter.

O Rourke went over the top a bit as he didn't have to so honest but he's right in implying that intercounty football is dying. It is. In ten years it probably won't exist. You can thank the GAA for that."
The possible demise of Gaelic football is a mirror of society.In my youth football was a simple game.You caught the ball and gave it a kick.We loved it.The demise of the game was not thought possible.Along came the "progressives" with their constant mending of what was not broken.Today Irish society is being culturally turned upside down by the same "progressive " mentality . One step forward and two back.

I think you might be over-thinking it
