If there is anything worse than getting flogged at training, it's when some lads aren't ever doing the work properly. We're all in this together.

There are a few GAA sins committed in training that are almost unforgivable, and we've listed the worst of them below.

1. Sprinting way out in front of everyone when running laps

No one is impressed.

2. Stopping short of the cones rather than going around them



3. Not turning up - particularly if you're the best player

Managers like to claim that the brilliant guy who can't be bothered going to training 'wont start the next day'. This promise is never kept.

4. Saying you're not thirsty during the designated water break and then running over to the tap and wrapping your mouth around it during the next drill



5. Crippling someone during the game at the end



6. Booting the ball into a nearby field and not going to collect it

Heinous behaviour. Even if it ends up in a lake, you go and get it.

7. Turning into a surrogate coach and urging your sluggish teammates along

There always one lad with a monkish intensity to him who decides to pull a Kieran McGeeney on everyone and appoint himself some kind of spiritual leader.


8. Just wanting to take penalties because you wanted to play soccer but your Dad make you play Gaelic football


9. Dropping the ball after the manager says 'right, 30 more seconds if we can get it right'

We were so close.

10. Leaving before the post-training session but pre-big game tactics talk in the clubhouse with Miwadi included



11. Point out that our plan to 'hit the opposition hard' sounds suspiciously similar to the plan that was unsuccessfully tried last year

Now is not the time for a dose of cynicism/reality.
