After watching rugby and soccer over the last few week-ends I found the fare from Boston very entertaining

Hockey style corners when a defender puts the ball behind his own line, body-checking and jersey pulls allowed ad infinitum. Charging with the ball allowed and when someone steps in their way they are given a free and the defended has to step aside and let them continue. The excuse for this kind of nonsense is to attract Americans to hurling.

Americans are already playing hurling - proper hurling - although perhaps not extensively. God forbid that this crap should ever influence them.


Have to agree Dorcha.

Watched a bit of it and saw no point in it (literally!)

Nobody can tell me this is an attempt to market or promote hurling to a global audience. Who really believes that such a hybrid game- if you could even call it that- will promote hurling in even the slightest way? Is there really a belief that this version of 5 aside soccer or rugby 7s is going to encourage and attract new entrants to the game? Where..in Boston or in Longford?

Nice junket for the players involved, and good luck to them, and nice Sunday afternoon for the Boston Irish wishing to see some top level hurlers in the flesh, but apart from that totally meaningless.

If we want to promote hurling, lets promote hurling in all its glory. And start in Longford.

Anyone being warned by their virus detector that there is a Trojan attached to the People's Republic of Cork website?

Not me anyway but there's plenty sick feckers inhabiting that place without a new dickhead.

How anyone outside of Dublin can support these cretins is beyond me.

I think Mr Costello has been on the magic mushrooms. Talk about siege mentality.
