Petition to the Offaly county board regarding the current players' strike sign now

We, both GAA supporters in general and those of us who are Offaly supporters in particular feel that that an expression of disappointment at the current situation in Offaly GAA is necessary. The excessive degree of control and lack of trust shown by our county board in recent years has manifested itself once too often.

The current system of "reviewing" the managerial positions every year serves only to allow county board officials to hold the whip hand at all times in matters of financial and team control, and does not allow for any continuity and development among the management and panel. The absence of any clear and attainable goals has in particular proved problematic, as in consecutive years our management have been criticised and eventually forced to resign/been dismissed for:
(1) Not putting enough effort into the league when a lot of young
players/debutants were being blooded and (2) winning the league but putting too much resources into doing so.

While accepting that no situation is black and white, and that the matters such as the senior vs U-21 standoff and the finite resources of the county are issues where right and wrong is far from clear, we as GAA people wish to express our support and admiration for the work done by Gerry Fahy, along with his selectors, Mark Plunkett and Matt Connor, and feel that he should be given whatever support possible in order to carry on the program he feels is best for Offaly football going forward.

We as supporters are willing to give our young management team time to grow and learn. We feel the county board should be willing to do the same.
