I love this snippet.
Speaking after last year’s game, Éamonn Fitzmaurice said: “I’m going to bite my lip on it, I’ll leave it. I’d prefer not to say anything, look ye saw it yourselves, you are all smart guys and can make up your own mind. I don’t want that to be the story, to be honest.”
Yes, Eamon, don’t say anything about how you feel but say everything about how you feel at the same time
FFS - it gets worse… a sitting Yerra TD and former Kerry footballer basically calls for payment… to a single player. Imagine the uproar if Tony Hanahoe or Mickey Whelan called for a Dublin player to be paid to remain in Ireland.
I hope Clifford does stay. I hope, as some suggested, he is offered a scholarship and suitable employment to remain in Ireland. But don’t have one rule for a certain player or county and another rule for everyone else.
