What would be the reason for a committee member to make such a remark? Are ye a senior team that yer younger players wouldn't get a game with first team? Or would ye not be in the top 3 of clubs up in Mayo?
Whatever the reason, in my opinion it is a disgraceful comment to make. Such a remark will make better players go to more successful clubs which in turn will make a select few clubs untouchable and others struggling. All you can do is keep plugging away, hold onto every player possible and never give up, success will follow.
Also would this committee member also have another motive...such as laying the doubt in yer players minds to join his club maybe??!!
