I think you misunderstood the post. Quite the opposite really, I think there should be a debate on if dropping all underage county level competitions would keep more players in the sport until adult level.

Replying To zinny:  "Any they wonder why there is a large dropout after minor. Going on about changing the age group for minor is a red herring. This is not just a County Board issue as clubs are all too willing to go along with it. As long as they keep the 4 or 5 good lads playing why bother with the rest."
But they are dead right. Don't need any deadwood. If can pull 4 or 5 players, happy days.

Because if there arent any "deadwood" thered be no team for the 4 or 5 to become good hurlers/footballers with. Theyd probably be good soccer or rugby players. At the end of the day any GAA club has far more important parts to it than the current best players.

Depends on the definition of deadwood. A lad who gets up in the morning and looks in the mirror and says to himself, "jayus I am a real funny lad, I am going to wind up those lads on the hoganstand today" well that thats deadwood to society.

another meaning of deadwood to a Gaa tam would be a lad who cant make his junior b team but lads on hogan stand fighting for his cause and for u-20 grade. lets be realistic about the u-20 grade, its absolutely pointless. a return to u-18 and then u-21 works much better. Dont know why your talking about mirrors or being funny.
