Forced to go to matches to watch highly paid hurlers hurl bad? Forced to make overnight trips and feed the kids? And the price of pheasant or duck nowadays? Forced to put up in the Lyrath while the hurlers swanned around Nowlan Park last summer? And you hoping Offaly would win primarily so you could ram it down the throat of your 'friends' on Premierview, or the locals in the bar in Castlecomer, or wherever?

You're a mess, Townman. Note: nobody forces you to go to matches. Nobody is hurling in muck and shyte (or in any kind of weather, come to think of it) so some gobshyte nobody knows can swan around every GAA site on cyberspace blagging and making a show of the whole county. And you do.

Tell you what. If you're a man, you'll approach the players and tell them to their faces. Tell the full-back and the centre-back they are not the answer. They'll be in Tullamore on Sunday, out the Arden Road, beside the hospital, so you should be able to find them. And be a man about it. For a change.

Waterford just beat laois by 18 points. Puts things in context

Possibly. Or it could be another smokescreen.

We'll get Waterford and see for ourselves.

Youll have to explain that a bit better, another smokescreen?

Sure.

Sometimes hard to tell how much to put into these comparisons.

Certainly it could be that Waterford gave it to them good and that it is a worthwhile comparison for us to consider.

It is also possible that Laois were not up to it or were experimenting. Perhaps they were not confident of getting a result and that affected their outlook. Or who knows what else...

Seems that performances vary by a wide degree this time of year.

Either way, we'll get a crack at them and that will give us a better indicator of where we are. Nothing more.

Smokescreen of circumstance more so than a contrived outcome or anything like that.

With that PJ's point is clear. Let's just hope we can change the perspective by giving it to them with both barrels when we get them.
