Whats obvious is that you offered no opinion on the topic of a yellow ball. Instead pushing your anti hurling agenda from the beginning.
Bring it on I say.. the yellow sliotar that is

Ya ZUL10 it seems if you say you think hurling is the best game in the world you are anti football and definitely if from any of the Munster counties you are anti Leinster hurling. I say also bring on the yellow sliotar. This push back and questioning of it is just nonsense. Time will proof that and the naysayers will saying how great it is and they were never again it.

Watching Dublin v Laois, I'm actually finding it a little but more difficult to distinguish the sliothar against the backdrop of the green pitch, green being closer to yellow than white I guess.
Maybe its just going to take me time to adjust, and it probably will provide better visibility in the air, especially under lights. But is anyone else finding it a little more difficult to distinguish the yellow of the ball from the green of the pitch, than they would with a white sliothar, initially at least? Might just be me.

I dont think the banks of terracing is helping either, in fact white might be better option given the background colours

Not as good in the brighter green grass but way better in the air

I dont see any logic as to how the grey terraces make yellow flou harder to see than white

Do you think they should have gone dual colour or multi colour ? Like white, yellow, florescent.
