Padraic Duffy Has A Stark Warning Of Dire Consequences Should His Proposals Be Rejected.

It really is election season. In a tactic used by politians for generations, GAA director general is warning of the consequences of what would happen if his plans are rejected.

On the fact of it, Duffy's proposals look to be a good thing. He's trying to reduce the chance of player burnout by getting rid of replays and finishing the club calendar earlier as well as changes to the minor age limit and the U-21 football championship.

Duffy fears that if nothing is done about burnout, then things could become very difficult with the players association:

Our elite young players are being put under enormous stress by the many demands placed on them, especially in the early part of the year, while our club players are angry and frustrated over a fixtures programme that's far too haphazard.

We can do something about it next weekend and I hope we avail of the opportunity. We owe it to our players to put this right.

Next weekend's vote will be a big one, with the Dublin proposal to preclude any TV deals with pay channels in the future.
