    He's got Brendan on board now too - https://www.killarneytoday.com/home-...etting-better/

    So far, now that he is in government, Griffin has shown little appetite to get to grips with some of the long standing governance issues which have arisen during Delaney’s tenure as chief executive.

    Del you're better placed than me, but I wouldn't believe there would any appetite to remove John Delaney from the Kerry District League? The FAI, or Delaney, has sueted Kerry clubs, and in particular Mounthawk Park quite well, with many clubs in GAA strongholds having fine facilities.
    Plus didn't the 15s/16s have a quadrangular tournament down there very recently?
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Delaney has family in Kerry and is pally with the Secretary of the KDL, John O'Regan, so I suspect you're right.

    It drives me bonkers...its so fecking obvious where the issues are with the league, the FAI. the overall cronyism

    Arghr grumble, mumble, I just think of Delaney for 1 sec and rants like this happen!

    Without even digging deep, there's no getting past his salary..it's just disgusting - and we never even consider that his life is basically expensed so he has barely any day to day cost. I've no doubt he added allowances to his salary which would be tax-deductible and not officially his base pay.

    Delaney: 360k pa (National team on life support for almost 20 years. barely functioning league)
    430lk for 8 of his 11 years.

    WHY?
    He's gotten away with it for years and years, simply because the media doesn't give a monkeys about the FAI outside of International breaks. There's very few who would take him on as well as it could affect their ability to earn. Consider it....who has really spoken out against them over the years? Keano and now Kerr. Quinn finally?


    What has he given us?
    Eircom Park?
    People far too quickly forget about eircom park and the bertie bowl - it's never been investigated but a shower of them pocketed millions from it. Delaney's predecessor squandered the chance to build a FAI only stadium and no-one will ever convince me that he wasn't a screw in the 'Stadium Ireland' swindle, along with Delaney himself. As below...arghr:
    https://www.independent.ie/sport/soc...-26092895.html

    Who in the name of bejasus spends 200k a month on marketing for a stadium before getting planning permissions for it?

    Aviva?
    The IRFU gave us the Aviva - the FAI went begging with hat in hand.
    Most people don't even realize that the FAI's joint ownership is actually on a lease and eventually the stadium goes back to full IRFU ownership.Delaney negotiated a horrendous deal with the IRFU simply because they had no other choice. I've always believed this was their plan all along.

    Euro 2020 Matches
    Nah,dont care, it's going to be a round robin approach. I'd be far happier if we waited another four years and had a functioning national league in place or at least in progress. Mainly though, a National Team that can compete there



    What about their corruption?
    • 5 million bribe from FIFA. Should have demanded 30 if it was truly spent on debt
    • Barca/Limerick friendly - still boils my blood
    • Eircom Park
    • Expenses - have they ever even been seen?
    • Subjugation of the LOI - It can't just all be pure incompetence....can it?
    • Match-fixing scandals - Athlone
    • Delaney Out poster fascism
    • 10k match-day program reprint - because Delaney screwed up


    And that's just what i can think of off the top of my head


    ARGHRGHRGRH....

    If only a decent hacker got into their emails...i's say it's rife with evidence
