Soccer is a gentleman's game played by gurriers, rugby is a gurrier's game played by gentlemen and GAA is a gurrier's game played by gurriers. Certainly if the carry-on, melee or argy-bargy that took place at the Under-15s match between Carnew and Kilcoole at the weekend is anything to go by some of the supporters fall into that category - whatever about the unfortunate players.
These scenes are not unusual. It's just someone recorded this and posted online. I was at an U16's match a few weeks ago and parents from the same team came to blows with each other. People take it far far too serious.
Down this neck of the woods the carry-on when some kids team wins a match is unreal with cars speeding through the town horns blaring and kids sitting out windows screaming. I never look out anymore ask I quite expect some child to end up falling from a car.
