    The idea that insurance companies are goinga round looking at football pitches is gas.

    Dalymount was poor last season, but there's been worse before and there'll be worse again

    The story is a nonsense

    Agreed, if it was the case then most junior teams in the country wouldn't be allowed play football anymore.

    Jaysus... The story "broke" on the Rovers forum. In other words it is just more of the usual fantasy talk that goes on over in that part of t'internet...

    To stir things, I know our LSC game there on Monday has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. Awful early for that...

    (It does sound like a nonsense story, though).

    Our friendly against them which was originally scheduled for tomorrow in Dalymount has been moved to Blanchardstown IT on Saturday. Didn't hear of any particular reason.

    How bad does a pitch have to be before an insurance company pulls the plug? Are there needles on the grass or something?

    They said on their website something like it was "To protect the pitch from damage".

    The weather has been very bad, and they had no money to pay anyone to look after it. Too much money is still going out of the game in the form of player wages and physio fees etc. Crazy that a number of players are getting 1k per week in the league of Ireland.

    If Terryland's pitch got insurance a few years back when it looked like a mountain range then I'm sure Dalymount is ok

    The problem is down to unaccounted for water leaking from a pipe in Dalymount Lane according to my (water) source.

    Sounds a logical reason for the problem anyway.

    Back in the day a player got a sponge of water squeezed on an injury and told to run it off.

    Now they get those fancy rubs, ice packs, scans, x-rays..... big girls blouses and it's all the physio's fault.
