It's getting a very positive reaction online, even from non-Cork folk. Hopefully they'll make a few quid off it. It's a better jersey for the match going fan than the blue one a few years ago, at least it has a bit of red on it.

Jersey is top notch. I will definitely be buying one. Would be cool with black shorts, red socks.

Just reading my way through them at the moment, and while some are fine and even simple, others indicate that the lunatics are well and truly represented in the GAA.

MOTION 4
Under current rule in both Gaelic Football and Hurling you can carry the ball in your hand for a maximum of four steps before you play it. This proposed rule amendment would stipulate instead that you can carry the ball for a maximum of two seconds in Gaelic Football and Hurling in your hand(s) before you play it.

If this is strictly implemented by referees there will be a free given almost every minute of the game. Have the people who proposed this forgotten their own playing days? The steps rule was fine and gave some leeway for a player to weigh up his options. Talk about setting out to destroy the games.

MOTION 6
This motion proposes a rule amendment that any player who receives a kick-out cannot pass it back to his goalkeeper. The penalty proposed for a breach of this rule would be a free-kick awarded to the opposition from the position the goalkeeper recieves the pass, or if the goalkeeper is inside the 13m line when in receipt of the pass the free will be from the 13m line opposite where the foul occurs.

Absolute madness.

Radio did say beforehand that the two were front runners, i was surprised too...looks like transfers from Gerry O Sullivan gave him the bump he needed.
