Dublin Senior A Hurling Championship (SHC A) 2017


#1762

I wouldn’t have much time for the footballers myself. They wouldn’t give 2 thoughts to anyone isn’t on the Senior 1 team. Hurlers are excellent across the adult section people


#1763

Not sure if that is the case with most clubs and perhaps a bit unfounded?, in the past definitely, , maybe Parnell’s when they had money but don’t think it applies to most.

Why don’t they just release publically what the expenses are so that people who contribute to the club and pay subs know how much is being allocated to it, or it could be as simple as a private benefactor?


#1764

Between this and his Kinder Egg Brand spokesman gig he’s doing well for himself


#1765

Mick Slattery was the manager. Mickey and Ben were coaches, Tom and a couple of others as selectors. That management team is gone now. New manager should be in place in the next week or two.


#1766

Ok question for yas lads, up and down the country teams have S&C coaches and physios, both of these people would be paid for their roles with the team. Fundamentally what do people perceive is the difference between paying those people and paying a manager?


#1767

A S&C coach does not have to be a member of the GAA


#1768

Not sure that explains the difference. And if the S&C coach is a member of the gaa and even a memeber of the actual club they’re coaching?


#1769

If a club is lucky enough to have a S&C guy who is a member of that club and is prepared to offer his skills and expertise for free! Then great! But if the club does not have that option and they want to compete at the top Then they have to pay for that service! It’s realky no difference to a situation where a player gets injured! If the injury requires Physio The expert usually needs to be paid for that treatment!


#1770

Ok, but again, why is that any different to paying a manager? Is that person not also a supposed expert in their field?


#1771

Everything is ok once it does not exceed the expenses rates laid down by the Central Council.

Expenses


#1772

Ok no issues with a manager claiming expenses! But clearly if a manager travels from cork to Dublin 5 days a week The expenses would obviously be greater than another manager travelling say from Bray to Stilorgan 3 days a week! You would hope so anyway!


#1773

There’s no guarantee that Daly will do any better than a Crokes member that would be doing the job FOC for the love of the game and their club. However, we can guarantee that a professionally qualified physio will do a better job than somebody that isn’t.


#1774

Yeh would agree that’s the strongest argument, fair point.


#1775

Anthony Daly is a level up from Ollie Baker.
Cluala won the last 2 matches against KC because of crucial KC management errors.
Daly has a comittment for Rory Carroll to return next year also.
Crokes will take Cuala next year and indeed any team in Dublin.


#1776

Meanwhile chuck sulks as the no 25 jersey on the junior B team is givem to someonr else in Cuala


#1777

Crokes will surly play a well drilled 7 at the back next year! Could be a very interesting final if Crokes meet a very lethal Cuala front 6.


#1778

Crokes


#1779

Hey Chuck, did Daly ever make a crucial management error, say against a serious hurling team like Antrim? I didn’t think so.


#1780

Well that’s completely untrue about Rory to start with


#1781

Chuck has contacts in every club in Ireland. He knows best
