I don’t think it’s an issue of self entitlement. It’s not like the lads are threatening to go on strike if they don’t get a car. If we (Dublin GAA) are in a position to offer such perks to our lads through sponsorship then we should. Especially something like a car, which will make lads lives easier in terms of giving the commitment that it’s going to take to get to the highest level. If Carlow or anyone else can’t attract a sponsor to do the same for them then it’s their hard luck. I wouldn’t be worrying about the plight of these smaller counties because believe me, if it goes tits up for us in either code they’ll be the first to take pleasure in it, especially if it’s them that do us.
As I said above it’s not going to define our season, but why not use every edge we can to get ahead is my thinking.
