DONEGAL MANAGER WANTS GAA CHIEFS TO ADOPT SOCCER RULE TO ALLEVIATE PERSISTENT FOULING

first_imgDonegal manager Rory Gallagher.Donegal manager Rory Gallagher believes GAA chiefs should adopt some soccer principles to alleviate the problem of persistent fouling currently blighting the game.GAA executives adopted the ‘Black Card’ rule to try and tackle the problem of cynical fouling in the GAA.However, the inconsistency of referees in issuing ‘Black Cards’ to players the issue of persistent fouling in general still exists. Donegal Senior team boss Gallagher reckons an approach similar to what is used in soccer could curb the problem.Gallagher was speaking on Newstalk’s ‘Off The Ball’ programme made he made the admission.As an 18-year-old player, Gallagher once suggested that cumulative card counts like in soccer should be brought into Gaelic football to cut down on fouls, and he told us that his stance on that issue has not changed.Gallagher said, “For all the talk of black cards, a policy similar to soccer where you pick up x amount of bookings, you’re suspended for the next game would be one way of stopping persistent fouling.” “At the moment with the Black Card rule you can be replaced by another player, while players who could book up a booking in every single game they play will receive no punishment for consistent fouling, and that’s not right.DONEGAL MANAGER WANTS GAA CHIEFS TO ADOPT SOCCER RULE TO ALLEVIATE PERSISTENT FOULING was last modified: February 18th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAHome-page SportnewsRory GallagherRule changesoccerlast_img read more

Goa Congress urges Governor to dismiss State government

first_imgStating that there is no government in existence in Goa and the democracy requires a stable government led by the Chief Minister, Congress in Goa on Monday urged Governor Mrdiula Sinha to dismiss the BJP-led State government. Addressing a press conference at the Congress House in the city, Congress chief spokesperson and former Union Law Minister Ramakant Khalap said that the present situation in Goa with several Ministers led by the Chief Minister away taking medical treatment, there was a constitutional deadlock.Mr. Khalap said the failure of the constitutional machinery leads to only one thing — dismissal of the government, taking over of the government, President’s rule. When pressed further and asked if Congress would call for a President’s rule to be imposed, Mr. Khalap said that it was the last resort, and quipped, “We will cross the bridge when it comes.” Calling the present situation in the State a “failure of Constitutional machinery,” Mr. Khalap, in reply to a question also said that once this government is dismissed, the democratic process will come into play and the Congress as the largest party in the State legislature will not lack in responding to the situation.Earlier, Mr. Khalap said, “Let the Chief Minister who is away in U.S. for treatment atleast nominate a Deputy Chief Minister or Minister in-charge as over 80% of the State budget is concentrated in the hands of unwell Chief Minister and Ministers. If that is absent, we request and we demand the Governor must withdraw her pleasure in this Council of Ministers and dismiss the government straightaway,” said Mr. Khalap. “While we all have been and continue to pray for fitness and good health of all the Ministers, including the Chief Minister, Congress cannot sit idle and watch the helplessness of the people of Goa,” remarked Goa Congress general secretary and spokesperson Yatish Naik, adding, “The adverse impact of the absence of these Ministers and the various issues which have been plaguing the State for the last ten months and which need to be taken care of.”Mr. Khalap said that on Monday they have sent a e-mail to the Governor requesting for an immediate appointment with her so that “once again we can apprise her of the prevailing situation and try and prevail upon her to act as per the mandate of the Constitution of India.” “The Constitution prescribes that there shall be a Council of Ministers with the Chief Minister as the helm to aid and advise the Governor. This is the mandate. We can understand the temporary absence of the Chief Minister. Invariably, if it is more than 24 hours, the powers are given to somebody else. It was at least possible to have a Deputy Chief Minister. It has always been the case that whoever has been unable to function, hands over the power to the second in command. The Chief Minister should have authorised not just one but many more ministers to do the work,” said Mr. Khalap. In the present situation, he wondered who was that who was aiding and advising the Governor of Goa because all work, all executive powers are to be exercised in the name of the Governor. “The question comes, how many times has the Council of Ministers met in the last few months. What is the aid and advise they have tendered to the Governor in this period. Let the Governor come clean on this, if the Goa government does not answer this question,” said Mr. Khalap.last_img read more

Indian Army asks Pak to take back bodies of intruders killed in Sunderbani sector

first_imgThe Indian Army has asked the Pakistan military to take back bodies of two “intruders” from that country who were killed in a gunfight along the Line of Control in Sunderbani sector of Jammu on Sunday, official sources said. Two heavily armed Pakistani intruders and three soldiers were killed Sunday in the gunfight after the Army foiled an infiltration bid along the LoC. The intruders were believed to be members of a Border Action Team (BAT) comprising Pakistan Army jawans and trained militants, an Army officer said on condition of anonymity on Sunday. The sources said the Pakistan Army has been informed through established communication channels to take the bodies of its nationals, who were wearing combat uniform. Army sources said a stern warning has been conveyed to the Pakistan Army to restrain terrorists operating from its soil. The incident on Sunday took place at around 1:20 PM. The sources said five to six Pakistani intruders crossed the LoC and fired on Indian Army patrol in the Sunderbani sector. They said since the talks between DGMOs (Director General of Military Operations) of the two countries on May 29, the Indian Army has been maintaining “utmost restraint” to uphold the ceasefire pact along the LoC despite regular provocative actions from across the border. However, Pakistan Army has been vigorously attempting to send terrorists across the LoC and seven infiltration bids have been foiled by the Indian Army since May 30, in which 23 terrorists have been killed. Reports suggest concentration of a large number of terrorists in launch pads across the border and they are desperate to infiltrate into India before the onset of winter.last_img read more

first_imgRB Leipzig coach Nagelsmann has dig at Everton over Lookman treatmentby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveRB Leipzig coach Julien Nagelsmann has had a dig at Everton over their summer arrival Ademola Lookman.The 21-year-old has made just one substitute appearance since returning to Leipzig in July.“Some (new signings) still need a bit of development time because they did not have the regular game time at their previous clubs,” Nagelsmann told Kicker.“Experience has shown that newcomers usually take a little longer to get along with what I want.“We have many video sequences with text attached. And then it is not easy if you can’t speak the language yet.“With a player like Ademola Lookman, who played very little at Everton, it takes more time than with Christopher Nkunku, who made 29 games at PSG last year. That’s completely normal.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
