Tipperary GAA 2018

the point is though, that he hadn’t the guts to do it himself. Is this the type of general you would like to fight for?


#22

I’d mind me own business if I was one of the players and realise I’ve bigger things to concern me over the coming weeks and months.


#23

Leadership is founded on trust. It’s not as simple as minding one’s own business. Has this damaged the trust they have in him? He dealt with it in a very cowardly way.


#24

I think you’re playing a game of silly buggers here my friend. I have you now. You Galway boys, awful divils.


#25

How do you think he dealt with this issue?


#26

jesus this ‘hotpoint’ comes across as an awful self important simpleton. i love this beaut Paudie (Maher) said he was still trying to digest it and he’ll talk to me in a few days. :smile:


#27

“Would you believe I got a text message from Jackie Tyrrell. I thought it was very nice of him. ‘Hotpoint, so sorry to hear you leaving the Tipperary set-up. We’d many great battles over the years. The best of luck to you in the future’.”

:smile:


#28

Clinically.

You realise we don’t have the full story here? If the rumours are to be believed, there was a slight made against the family. Michael Corleone didn’t pull the trigger on Fredo personally, but it was done, and done at his behest.

You don’t cross the family.


#29

Clinically! It’s all over the media.


#30

Its in the Examiner

And only because this fella contacted a journo.

This time of year is a GAA vacuum.

Tipperary GAA is box office.


#31

:smile: this is like one of those articles Tom Humphries was ghost writing for @Sidney

Renowned for his explosive dashes onto the field to replace broken hurleys, Hayes rejects any suggestion he has slowed down in that department.
“Twice this year I had to run across to a player looking for a hurley on the far side of the field.
“They all have two spares. So a lad on the far side of the field from them would have their number three.“
And a lad nearest them would have their number two. So if they broke the hurley, he’d be there first.
“Twice this year, I was across with their number three hurley before the lad nearer them. So that argument doesn’t hold water.”


#32

That’s fucking hilarious. Here’s my favourite bit…

There was support too from the hurley-carrying fraternity, including long-serving Kilkenny kitman Denis ‘Rackard’ Cody.

The hurley-carrying fraternity???


#33

The interview is so bad it is good . Thank you Hotpoint .


#34

"Hayes rejects any notions he slowed down in that Department "

This is utterly priceless .


#35

This isn’t the first controversy of its kind.

Donegal’s Jim McGuinness famously fired Francie Friel after failing to Mayo four years ago and brought in a new kit person.

But I don’t recall Francie giving any interviews over the matter and little came out in the wash subsequently.


#36

There is a need for a GPA type organisation for Hurley carriers. They could organise a testimonial dinner for Hotpoint.


#37

It was a great grounding for his future role as Donegal U17 manager.

Hotpoint won’t be getting any future roles in Tipp GAA.


#38

Hotpoint should write a book “The Art and Science of Hurling Kit Management”.

The chapter on in-game hurling stick replacement alone would make it a must read.


#39

Hotpoint would be better off keeping his mouth shut. A good decision by Ryan, who had his reasons.

Darren Gleeson expected to retire, although he might play a bit of inter firms next year…


#40

The other less successful counties that border Tipp could look at employing Hotpoint as a kit man .
