Notwithstanding the fact that bart has a very valid point re. our lack of true forward talent, what causes such low levels of expectation among the small ball brethren of the county that we can have so many - both younger talents & older veterans - willing to walk and yet management seem to saunter on regardless? Honest question. Is it that they're stuck paying GC a fee to the end of the season, come what may, so it's a case of trying to get value for the expense? Hope I'm way off the mark with that.
Standards of player welfare, communication & preparation are a given on the football side of the house. The levels in hurling seem completely scattergun in comparison.
