Perhaps someone more informed than myself could answer this, but do the Dublin players get fed etc after training? Do they get their supps and protein etc supplied? Do a number of county players not get free cars? Holidays, do they count?
Is the game not already semi-pro, if they get these BIK's. They can then spend their well earned money elsewhere if not paying for these things. Same as getting money IMO.....and I'm all for it btw... they deserve every bit of it.
Perhaps receiving cold hard cash feels ethically different....but the result is the same..
