The tit for tat battle between all parties involved has been festering away for too long. This is probably due to the fact that it off season.
The power struggle between the two sides goes back to when the players threatened strike action over player welfare issues. They sorted out their problems that year and went onto contest the All Ireland final against Kilkenny in However, this time it a much nastier feud which no doubt will result in some players retiring. Some of the statements released by the players in the last month have been very malicious. Ben O attack on manager Ger McCarthy was very personal. McCarthy, winner of five All Ireland finals as a player would be seen down Leeside as a very decent guy who would love to bring the McCarthy Cup back to his county. His record as a manager might be average but he simply never stood a chance with this bunch because when he was initially elected it was well known that Adidas Sl 72 Vin Trainers
They must realise that 27 of their 30 titles were won before they were given the honour of pulling on the famous red jersey. If they are not happy they should move on and let young hungry guys in to do their job. Cork has a long tradition in the game and no one need tell me that they wouldn find another 30 good players that would be capable of competing at the highest level if the current panel was to walk out in block. They might not win next year All Ireland but I sure they would blend into a good side with a bit of experience under their belt.

the players wanted Ger Cunningham. The County Board appointment of McCarthy has left the man a pawn in this ongoing feud. The players seem way too big for their boots at present whatever happened to the honour of wearing the county colours?
The Cork saga has taken up a lot of paper space in the last month and by the looks of things a resolution seems further away now than it did in its initial stages.
a lot of respect for them in recent weeks. There are always ring leaders in teams and they are usually the more experienced members of the panel. It was comical to hear some of the older guys issuing statements that the younger panel members were more aggravated than them from my experience as a young Kilkenny panel member back in 1990 you just Adidas Rose Running Shoes kept your trap shut and were grateful to the manager for giving you the opportunity to be involved, maybe times have moved on.
One wouldn have to be residing in Cork to know that relations between the players and county board have been on thin ice over the last few years. Adidas Sl Loop Red Crocodile
Corks saga is boring the nation
The saga has entered a boring stage and people are just fed up of all the sniping. When it all boils down it reverts down to a power struggle between the more senior campaigners and a certain Frank Murphy whom the players have no time for. Maybe for the greater good of Cork hurling and hurling in general, it time for some of the main protagonists to move on and that includes Frank Murphy. When Kilkenny set out on their defence of the McCarthy Cup next year we want Cork in the mix because it wouldn be the same without them.
