1. Playing for your club/county is a honour, not an obligation.
2.The GAA is about giving, not taking.
How many players, these days, can say this??????????.

Ask not what your club/county can do for you but what can you do for your club/county.

Twenty Reasons Why We Should Reject the Proposed Grants/Awards/Pay Scheme



• It flies in the face of our Rule 11 which clearly states that “a player, team, official or member shall not accept payment in cash or in kind in conjunction with the playing of gaelic games”. As such it represents an attempt at the most fundamental shift ever in GAA ethos and policy. And it shifts the entire focus within the GAA from “We” to “Me”.

• It is a policy which, if introduced, will never be reversed: once the principle of paying players is introduced, experience in every other sport in every other setting shows that the only issue for debate thereafter is: “How much more?”

• The GAA is about giving, not taking. The GAA gives the money it earns back to the people of Ireland in the form of facilities; coaching; games development; and equipment. Only by retaining our amateur status can we ensure this reinvestment continues, generation after generation.

• Playing for your County is a choice, not an obligation. Always, always, always in the GAA you do what you do because you want to. If you don’t want to … then don’t do it. That brilliantly simple concept has served us so well for 124 years. This arrangement totally undermines that understanding.

• Paying this money establishes a dangerous precedent. The GAA will have to pick up the tab when the government, as it inevitably will, drops out

• Inflation and claimed “increased-costs-of-playing-gaelic-games” will have to be factored in

• There is no moral argument for not paying the same money to the inter-County back-room people who put in the same time and effort. Counties will have to come up with the money and the arrangements to do this.

• Once we start paying back-room teams, there is no moral argument in turn for not paying other County Committee people: they put in as much (if not more) time and effort and without them there would be no County GAA to start with.

• It is not at all clear who carries the legal liabilities (of which there will be many) in all this. The first case for “wrongful dismissal” or whatever from a County panel is inevitably on its way.

• The “Bosman” and other EU rulings mean once money becomes involved and “restraint of trade” issues invariably follow, the GAA won’t have a legal leg to stand on in terms of stopping players transferring to Counties where their financial prospects are better

• There will be a financial incentive regime in place in the GAA which discourages elite players from putting themselves at risk in Club games

• There’ll be no incentive or justification to address the current poison of paid managers in the GAA … which should be an absolute priority for the GAA

• Some players will inevitably object because they have to play more matches than players from other Counties to reach the Championship Quarter-Finals and be awarded the money that comes with that. This will fatally undermine the structure of our Championships.

• The first headline as follows is already on its way: “That refereeing decision cost us ‘so-many-thousand’ euros”

• We will have a scenario where County A’s players get the money on the basis of attending 80% of, say, 100 sessions whilst County B’s players will get it on the basis of attending 80% of, say, 50 sessions

• The scheme seriously expects people with full-time jobs to “visit schools and youth facilities” as part of their new “GAA contractual arrangements”. The costs of those school and other visits will have to be picked up by someone: that someone will be the Counties.

• The GPA has already claimed players should be entitled to a share of TV money (“HQ Warned to Share TV Money Around”, Setanta, 23 October 2007). The GAA will have no moral (let alone legal) justification for opposing such a future GPA claim … paid directly to them of course by a third party, the TV company. (No doubt it will be backed up by the threat of strike action – which in the new pay-for-play context it will actually be a strike)

• The rest of the GAA is still expected to fundraise to provide elite facilities when the users of those facilities are going to have to be paid to use them

• The new contractual requirements placed on players are the diametric opposite to the supposed concern with over-burdening players

• The GAA will be morally and legally unable to oppose a sponsor who offers a County panel a large, performance-based, sum of money to win a title
