    We need to talk about this "group" and how they are funded and what they spend the money on.

    No GAA organisation has ever been as secretive about its spending

    Maybe try UFOs. I recommend Roswell if you like conspiracy theories.

    Them accounts prove nothing

    12 Staff taking home that ludicrous salary is the first red herring.

    No mention of what fee's it pays the third party company who runs the "helpline"

    Not an ounce of information on the fee's to the "consultancy" firm who runs their "leadership" programme

    How about the private company who run the fundraisers in the U.S

    Little said about the "finders fee" the GPA paid Paul Flynns ex employers when they recommended him for the CEO gig.

    I have no doubt they do good work but they are ridiculously over funded

    It was blatant pay off to get GPA inside the tent. Nothing less.

    Don't really object as it beats listening to strike threats. Whole thing is in my opinion part of the marketing agencies ploy to have big names on their books.

    And what part of "player welfare" would possibly have justified flying Paul Flynn to a makey uphurling match in Boston!

    Ate they ever spoke on club fixtures? No its money for the elite. No promotion? Can they pay for coaches to go coach in weaker counties?

    Wonder how the GPA will act on these proposed rule changes when the players seem quite unhappy with them
