The Joe Brolly tries to score thread


#2442

He’s not one to shy away from a scrap. Fair play to him


#2443

He never was.


#2444

Ryan seems like a very underwhelming appointment.


#2445

Never a solution with Joe. Who would he have liked to get the job apart from himself? The vice chairman of Glenballymore who broke his jaw with a box in a league game back in 1995 but they all went for pints after the game anyway and laugh about it these days?


#2446

Joe Brolly has become the Gemma O’Doherty of the GAA.


#2447

He was always the front-runner, CP want a numbers man rather than any idealist.


#2448

Joe Brolly’s spiel, like that of all demagogues, denies current realities and pleads for a return to a supposed golden era that that never existed.

Under his direction, the GAA would be on a road to disaster.

He’s a deeply confused crackpot.


#2449

Carlow GAA has Joe seething.


#2450

Where did a wee boy like you learn a big fancy word like demagogue, and WTF relevance does it have to Joe Brolly.
Demagogue!


#2451

Is he engaging in demagoguery?


#2452

He has a point in that the gaa could direct their money far better than at the GPA, who by their own admission, are offering unvouched for bursaries in a corridor.


#2453

His recent meanderings have been a bit demagographic alright.


#2454

I know a fella who got funded for an MBA through the GPA. He chanced his arm basically not having played inter county football in 3 or 4 seasons. He was not from a prominent county. To say he was surprised to get the funding was an understatement


#2455

Where he was from is irrelevant. They seem to be able to hand out massive sums without recourse, audit, transparency or fairness, on a whim.
It’s bizarre in this day and age.
The teamsters would seem reasonable in comparison.


#2456

Are you suggesting dermot earley has been buried under a few ton of concrete?


#2457

Its quite relevant. I think it was unusual that this guy got funded but his prominence as a footballer played no part in it.


#2458

Surely it shouldn’t matter.


#2459

#2460

Theres a pretty shocking stat about Leitrim in there @thedancingbaby @Boxtyeater @farmerinthecity @Matty_Hislop @The_Selfish_Giant


#2461

It’s tyrone’s fault
