Magee: I’d strike out

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SPORT - BY PAUL KEANE

FU­RI­OUS Wick­low boss Johnny Magee says he’d go on strike over the ‘Su­per Eight’ setup if he was still a player. A 76 per cent ma­jor­ity of Congress vot­ers last week­end agreed to re­place the All-ire­land quar­ter­fi­nals with two new groups of four de­spite the Gaelic Play­ers As­so­ci­a­tion and Club Play­ers As­so­ci­a­tion be­ing against the changes. Magee said: “How long can you kick a dog be­fore it bites back? What do they re­ally expect up in Croke Park? The word strike might sound very strong but at the end of the day the play­ers have voiced their opin­ion and it’s not been lis­tened to. And this is not once, it’s two years in a row that the GPA has been ig­nored. “If I was still a player, my opin­ion would be that I will go on strike be­cause that’s twice now they haven’t lis­tened to us.”
