I’ve kind of dipped in/out of being involved with my son and it works better but living outside Dublin in a small community, we wouldn’t really have the luxury of having a policy on this.
On a side note, again from a smaller county point-of-view, the value of county development squads is something I’d be more concerned about. I heard Brolly having a go about it too yesterday, I’d tend to agree with him on this one. Smaller clubs suffer from having lads involved as it can create a ‘them and us attitude’ with young fellas and very often they are not training at all with their clubs.
When you see minor county sides getting taking a hammering from Dublin playing some type of blanket defence, you begin to wonder what it’s all about. Would these lads that have been in development squads for a few years not have been better off playing with their clubs and just coming together for minor level?
