Adult Football League 1 (AFL1) 2019

The problem now is there is growing culture that IC players shouldn’t be asked to play for their clubs and a growing number of players who concur.

I suspect Lazarus will featuring in few positions come Croke Park Saturday evening


#165

yip amazing how many tight hammys clear up over the week


#166

A chance to make history … or pick up an injury on a cold Feb morning that could jeopardize your season. It’s a tough one.


#167

there used to be universal school of GAA thought that “your season” also includes involvement with “your club”.


#168

Yep … That’s when it was a hobby …


#169

I don’t think managers were told they were injured necessarily but just that they needed rest. Joke of a decision but not much can be done about it as county manager calls the shots for now. It would be great if the likes of Kilkenny of McCaffrey took a personal stance and insisted on playing club games throughout the season up to a week before championship games. I only mention those two as they are undroppable if fit


#170

Needed a rest from what exactly? Maybe a rest from interminable training and an actual game of football might do the trick.


#171

No chance of getting injured in practice games or challenge matches of course.

Wrapping grown men in cotton wool. Laughable.


#172

Sort of like how Lowndes got injured training for Dublin last week?


#173

You can twist your ankle hopping out of your Hyundai Forrester. I think we all know what I meant - I’m not necessarily advocating it either - just seeing it from a player’s point of view. If you get an injury like Eric fair enough … I’d say any of the lads would be very pissed to bust a shoulder training with the club.


#174

If i recall correctly, Bernard Brogan did his cruciate ligament in Dublin training last year. Guys are just as likely to get hurt on a training pitch with Dublin as they are when training/playing with their clubs.


#175

If you’re talking about training I have no issue with them nkt being released for training prior to league games. But they should be released for matches where there’s a week between games


#176

sure we are constantly told they are only back a few weeks and hence they are not firing on all guns just yet.

So what are they needing rest from ?


#177

I see Dessie gone in with Dublin hurlers . Will this effect Na Fianna . Hard to see how you could do both !


#178

what is this?
