Larry Tompkins Has Introduced A New Description For Football

Larry Tompkins Has Introduced A New Description For Football
By Paul Ring

Cork legend Larry Tompkins is not one bit happy about the state of Gaelic Football and has come up a few ways of changing the game he loves. The All Ireland winner told the Irish Examiner that that among other things, he'd curb back passing to the goalkeeper, he'd force kick-outs to go beyond the 45m line and that all free's should have to be taken from the ground.

Tompkins also blasted the black card and believes the physicality of football has been ruined introducing a novel description:

“If you go hard at a fella now, you’re in danger of being sent off. It’s gone very much like cotton wool football. You really need more physicality and more confrontation because those are great skills and aspects of the game which are being lost.

“In order for the crowd to be involved and invested in the whole thing, you need that confrontation. But the reality now is that players are afraid to touch each other"

Cotton wool is nicer than puke football at least.
