Replying To brisbane:  "True

" No fight in that team" I think its just the galway dna much like the hurlers no fight the just want to play nice and not get hit

"Ian Burke is an all-star. From the first 10 seconds, he looked like he didn't want to be there. What can kevin walsh really do about that other then try find new players"
Yeah, he didn't look like he wanted to be there because his buddy was dropped

Replying To kiloughter:  "Ah come on. No football enthusiast can deny we were very poor 2nd half and that there are serious mgt issues but to accuse players of trying to make names for themselves is scandalous. These guys train so hard and get that abuse. You really need to have a look at yourself. And then we had pre match a few posters from other counties trying to convince us Comer and Conroy would be on the bench. No clue at all of the injury situation. Just taking cheap shots. Anyway it will be some other county getting the heat next weekend as remember what comes round goes round."
What I said was "Some lads seem intent on making a name for themselves rather than being team players" you are trying to twist my post or else a little difficulty understanding it & certainly that line is far from abusive as you state, I know you like to have a rattle, maybe works with others. It's very obvious that a number of individuals are going for their long Hail Mary pot shots instead of playing the better percentage ball to teammates, we all know who they are, they are not team players, even the last day you could hear there team mates giving out to them. It has been the same from underage up with the same players, Your dead right, what goes around, comes around & it's on its way.

Replying To WanPintWin:  "You're some wum. If you'd watched our hurlers for any of the last 3 years, you'd see they're well able to give and take hits and haven't shirked any battles. They certainly haven't lacked courage. The KK from 2 weeks ago, even showed that. We simply weren't good enough this year.
The footballers are a different story and the whole setup needs to change. We've had far too many of those non-performances."
You beat me to it. Great fight in the hurlers. 3 finals and a semi final in 4 years. On the few occasions the lost, they went down fighting. I'd follow them anywhere.

Point taken on the slight misinterpretation. No problem holding my hands up. But it is gas. Many giving out that we don't kick long and often enough. Yet when we do and the inside guys are not winning their ball it is seen as aimless. As we all know the margins are very tight. On our own forum as I said hard to disagree with much of the commentary but nationally has been very over the top from many looking to have a pot anyhow

And the only time they could win was against a poor waterford team which they nearly lost. Galway have been hurling for more then 4 years
