GAA rule rethink
Sir — Colm O’Rourke (Sport, Sunday Independent, October 7) reckons this ‘rules committee’ wants to return our game to its former glory. Quite easily done — prevent more than two challenging the player in possession, prevent the one in possession charging with the ball and allow a safe tackle.
This will give an equal chance to everybody to do their job and make life easier for the referee. It will trouble mass defences. The only means of dictating where a player can, or cannot be positioned, is by an offside rule. We only need to reimplement a few old rules which are being ignored. M Teehan, Tipperary
