    This is kinda funny, considering soccer and rugby are banned in Croke. I would go along and watch if it was on though.

    I probably would... If I lived in Ireland. Probably cheaper for me to go Yankeeville and watch mulitiple games.

    eh i hate ND, if you wanted a real treat you guys should watch my beloved Ohio State University play (after all i do live in ohio), if you do go which you should since you guys dont get to much football there, expect ND to dominate navy...

    Right so let me get this straight, Notre Dame have an Irish connection so let's have them play in Croke Park, now correct me if I'm wrong but aren't the vast majority of soccer and rugby players from Ireland and the rest also have Irish connections, surely this is a case of double standards.

    yup it's a load of shite from Sean Kelly to be honest.

    Don't think that kind of crap washes with the Irish public, jesus he could do with a decent PR to spin that one.

    Their $$$ circumstance is the only thing keeping them out of my Big Ten.

    yea i would love to see them in the Big Ten, it would make it an even tougher conference, plus it woudl boost the already number 1 basketball conference..

    I thought they want to stay independent?

    They do want to stay ind, because of the $$$. But they were forced to join a conf in basketball. But, at least their regular season schedule will keep them from ever going unbeaten again.

    I guess the main point is that American Football is not a sport whose rules were established by the Brits such as Football and Rugby.

    So how in your expert opinion do Croke Park have their head up their arses and stop living in the past, and can we have an answer with a little more than they just should or some other monosyllabic crap

    Well the big thing with the GAA is that they call other sports 'foreign games', so this should include the likes of American Football and Boxing but doesn't. There's no link between any of the Gaelic Games and American Football so that should see it banned from any GAA ground.

    Yet it originate from Rugby...
    What I don't get is that Rugby is the only game that unites south and north, so why not let them play it there?

    that was one thing I'd thought about for a long time before the rule was relaxed and was a worry that the GAA would let the IRFU in cause they're a 32 county team and tell the FAI to **** off, thankfully isn't the case.

    GAA also unities north and south. Teams from all 32 counties plus exiles in New York and London all compete in the All Ireland Championship.
