Dublin Senior Hurling 2018 - The Pat Gilroy Era


#2874

So well put. Can’t stand most sports presenters these days.


#2875

If you think the problem with your post is that you used a bold word then you missed the point.


#2876

No i didnt.
In my opinion, Nolan is not up to it. I didnt give the opinion of others or the management team, nor did i try to impose my opinion on others.

If I simply named 15 and didn’t put him in it, i’ve also said the same without saying anything.


#2877

Fully agree and apologise for any offense. Absolutely isn’t a personal grudge, don’t even know the chap off the field.
Meerly a poor chose of word…
Still think other players are better than him though.


#2878

You did say “you’re all mad” - (it may not be imposing your opinion on others but it’s certainly letting them know how little you value theirs) before giving your own opinion on Nolan.

Look, I accept that you didn’t mean it personally. It wasn’t all about the s-h-one-t word either. You basically put Nolan down. He’s an amateur, trying his hardest at a game he loves for his own county, at the end of the day. Simply saying he wasn’t up to it, in your opinion, would have been better.

I’ll say no more. Your username gives you the benefit of the doubt, for me.

I wouldn’t mind being half as good as Nolan, but that’s another story.


#2879

Yep, I only reserve the right to criticize players that I was better then. So anyone that’s next or near this Dublin squad is fairly safe from me!!


#2880

Cant disagree. But i hope you can see past what i said, to what i meant.
My intended point was id rather Maguire or Brennan.
Would i still take Nolan over another, yes probably.
Hopefully now it is case closed and we can get back to other debates


#2881

You’re right though, we are all mad.


#2882

I’ve said enough… @beeko will be my counsel should i ever require


#2883

You’re donald ducked, so.


#2884

He’s a @beeko - not a beak!


#2885

Dublin v Waterford tonight, Parnell park 8pm in a challenge match for those intertested.


#2886

Rumour has it 6 lads cut from the panel for the championship


#2887

Also pats v Plunkets is off next Wednesday as St Pat has refused to allow the lads on the panel play


#2888

Why would he let them? And if he did and Rushe got injured you’d be moaning then too. It’s ten days before the game vs. KK. And it’s May. Why is it fixed for then? Compared to many counties dublin has done right by the clubs in April. But don’t let that get in the way of your ranting. Short of winning the All Ireland there seems to be little or nothing Gilroy can do to please you.


#2889

No Alan if he left the post it would make me very happy
And Rush might get injured in a game but it’s ok to play at least 10 of the starting team 4 days earlier
And how dare I give out about st Pat a good Vincent’s man


#2890

Well at least I need not read any more of your posts now. As you don’t even have the decency to give the man a fair go I won’t bother.

And considering what he has done already for the GAA in Dublin your attitude is deplorable.


#2891

What he did for the footballers which I’m agree was amazing but the hurling all he done was stop Rory o Caroll play in the Leinster under 21 final and we made him hurling manager


#2892

Would you ever give it a rest re Gilroy. The sarcastic reference to him as St Pat is bordering on pathetic.


#2893

No I won’t and bordering on pathetic is blindly sticking up for someone that you must know was a joke selection
From what I have seen at the games and from what I have heard is the one big thing ST PAT has brought to the table is everyone calls each other by there first name because it sure as hell hasn’t been a game plan
