From Shane Cassells TD this morning

Great news this morning that @MeathGAA has got the green light to redevelop Páirc Tailteann into a 21,000 seater stadium. This will make the old ground one of the finest in the country. I've sought financial backing from the new Sports Infrastructure Fund to help make this happen

Looks like St. Conleth’s will be fifrth in the pecking order after Portlaoise, Tullamore, Nolan Park, Navan.

Lads I am trying to keep this here as I just want other threads to be about Kildare football.

But there is talk now of Dub-proofing football and making changes to the rules to do this. FFS all the rules are in favour of more open football and this will in turn suit the Dubs more than anyone.
They are absolutely not going away and the real concern is that they are the hot ticket in town now in parts of Dublin who were rugby strongholds.
I work with two rugby heads who went to the rugby schools and all that, and now both are involved in underage club committees. The numbers of kids they have involved are scary.
Even if funding is cut they are able to source funds so eaily now as the more affluent are on board, with their connections.

Congrats to the 3 lads on their All star nominations. If I was Kevin Flynn I think I’d be slightly peeved though

Kevin Flynn definitely deserved a nomination.

Well done to all three nominated - Wouldn't be often we have more nominated than Kerry !!
Strikes me how much Kildare are fawned over, so much more so than all other mid tier teams.
Anytime we go on a run we are considered "contenders" and we are always involved in game of the year, goal of the year contenders. Adds to our "bridesmaid" tale over the years...

Anyway, that's an aside. Well done all three. Nice personal boost for them and will also help the team to have further all star nominees to go with Peter Kelly and Feely. Should add confidence.

I imagine Dan is the only one of the lot with a punchers chance of sneaking in.

Paddy Power doesn't even have Eoin Doyle price listed (he is the only back not quoted!) and they also have Paul Cribben listed as Neil Flynn so says a lot for the chances !!

Best of luck lads and enjoy the night

It's not seriously decided by a Twitter vote is it?

So FIGHTS!

It is something we haven't spoken about here. I think there should be action taken on scumbag behaviour wherever it happens.
Two lads going at it, or a pile-in of pushing and shoving is one thing, but more serious matters need serious sanctions.

Agree with that, always was and always will be bust ups due to the nature of our games but taking it off the pitch or lads going on the pitch to fight has to be off limits

I would say now listening to radio and that there is no difference being made between a lad getting decked off the ball and handbags.
There needs to be some form of scale when it comes to reaction and overreaction.

From talking to lads at work there's plenty of scraps in rugby but doesn't develop into a riot. Better discipline all round in rugby on and off the pitch. Maybe they impose better sanctions like a club in wexford last year didn't get international tickets after a big dust up

I saw far more bust-ups on rugby pitches than on GAA ones. Just all go for pints after..

The silence from Croke Park on the issue is deafening, if rules and sanctions need to be changed so be it and it needs to come from the top.

When kelf? Would you say a good few years ago? Every major sporting organisation in the world I can think of, in team situations, had this problem. And they all recognised it was no longer acceptable. I'm not saying they never happen but they're hit hard. Aussie rules no longer have the Donnybrooks, the big basketball fights, American football, rugby they used to go all-out thuggery - it's not how you sell your games to parents and the next kids, and it's not how you sell your game to sponsors. So they made the punishments hurt. GAA have not.
