Flaherty Fuel website

The "Flaherty Fuel site could do with fixin up" would not be agreed to by er....Flaherty Fuel.
Thats their information and as it is they who own Flaherty Fuel...its a tough call but I think they have the final say on that one.

As for the tackle; I suppose a lot of the problem is that the rules were framed at a time when the emphasis was much more on moving the ball. Players werent as fit, and tended to deliver the ball long rather than run with it in hand. Your right...back then it was football...now its handball. The tac...

Tackles & Handball

Having established there does exist one then....its clear it doesn't work. As for flicking it with your hand from ...

Gaelic Football Fundemental Flaw

Well then if this No Tackle situation continues, all you have is a glorified version of that Eurosport Handball game where there exists no tackle either. The fact that the GAA has never sought to a single thing in relation to a tackle over the years shows that they are clueless on how to deal with i...

Gaelic Football's biggest flaw

While all of the arguments go on in GAA today about various aspects, Rule on "Foreign Sports", Croke Park etc I'd like to ask what other people think of the most obvious...ignored flaw in GAA Football. The Tackle...or should I say Non Existent Tackle. The whole defending players “flip flapping” thei...
