The abuse that Aidan O’Shea amongst others gets on here from some, almost always totally uncalled for and virtually never criticised by the moral guardians, is staggering.
Atr the end of the day O’Shea is a member of the GAA, same as the rest of us. By all means be legitimate in your criticism. But leave it at that.
The not all that bright comment is somewhat tongue in cheek. But if Fenton actually believes that we should be paying stars for the benefit of their company during the summer then that is most disappointing. And somewhat symptomatic of the attitude of some inter county players unfortunately.
And it’s worth noting that the original interview was by the Irish News, not the Independent, and that he is quoted directly, which would suggest that that is exactly what he said.
He is entitled to his view. But it is an attitude I think is deplorable. Far too many people looking at the GAA now as a way of supplementing their income.
