we could learn a lot from it with a bit of creativity we could have a much better product.
Creativity is very difficult when every decision is made by 100s of people at congress. No one person would come up with what we have now, it is the embodiment of the expression that a giraffe was a horse designed by a committee. In trying to keep everyone happy, no one is happy.
Now we have another group, the club players association to lend their voices to the cacophony, just ensuring no one at all will be heard. On an aside, but I see they have hired the same 10 year old to write their statements as the GPA did. They just stick them in the room with a pen (crayon) and the instruction to try to write as if they are a grown up at a real serious grown up type job…
This is why the colleges should be thrown out of these competitions. They take the group stages seriously and in the process eliminate the likes of Offaly and Laois. Then when it gets close to Fitgibbon they put out a B team and waste everybody’s time.
