You miss the point that there are no gaps in which to release all the players. If hurlers are free footballers aren’t and when footballers are free hurlers aren’t . Training has nothing to do with it. The schedule of matches does. The easy option is to blaim managers and back room people and their training methods but it is not their fault
Hurling and football are irrelevant in most if not virtually all instances.
Dublin will likely play no more than fourteen football games from the first round of the league to the AI final should they get there. There are thirty five(!) weeks between the first round of the league and the AI final. That’s 21 weeks when lads are NOT playing for Dublin.
So what I am saying is that players, instead of bonding weekends and training camps and whatever other shite they get up to should, on the vast majority of these weekends, be playing with their clubs. League or championship is up to the county board to decide. The issue of hurling is all but dead. Clubs would accept that dual players could not be catered for for league games but efforts would be made to do so for championship.
That is perfectly doable once the inter county manager is put back in his place.
