GAA Fans In Uproar At Shambolic Mismanagement Of Postponed Games

GAA Fans In Uproar At Shambolic Mismanagement Of Postponed Games

Many GAA fans were left bitterly disappointed this afternoon as a number of inter-county fixtures were called off on account of poor weather conditions.

Although games in Leinster and Munster were by and large unaffected, fans of counties in Connacht and Ulster were far less fortunate. Of the eight games schedules, only three took place.

While few would be so brazen to blame the unplayable conditions on the GAA, the manner in which these postponements have been handled seems to have left many paying fans left quite unhappy indeed.

With many traveling fans having already made specific arrangements to travel to this afternoon's postponed fixtures, the question most were asking was whether a refund would be possible.


Furthermore, many were confused as to why the match officials had waited (in certain instances) until throw-in time to finally make the decision to call the match off.

In certain cases, games weren't postponed until after the scheduled throw-in time - a farcical situation that reinvigorated calls regards the foolishness of having games at this time of year at all.

Although no official statement has been forthcoming yet from the relevant bodies, most fans are under the impression that tickets bought for today's fixtures will only be worth entrance to the rescheduled fixture - a consolation that many are equally disappointed about.

At the end of a frustrating day for many fans across the country, the GAA could perhaps consider a restructured approach on how they deal with such scenarios.

That so many games were left undecided upon until so late on in proceedings, it is difficult to comprehend how such a farce was allowed to develop.
