GAA UPDATE

THE GAA has been praised after successfully passing the baton of wanton violence from International Rules football to Super 11s hurling. The compromise game seemed to be on its deathbed after both Ireland and Australia decided to play in a sporting manner, focus on catching and kicking skills and not batter each other. Many fans were turned off at the prospect of a fair but tough game.
But less than 24 hours later, the GAA’s latest made-up sport, the 11-a-side clash between Galway and Dublin in Fenway Park, Boston, drew praise for the 22-man dust-up which got the 28,000-strong crowd going. “Let’s be honest,” said one Yank, “this was never going to take off without a schmozzle. The only thing that was lacking was the music during the fight – like they do in the ice hockey.” The association are also said to be pleased with the level of violence in the country’s club finals but have asked those taking videos to film in landscape and not portrait mode.
