Ban handpass in football games

Sunday’s match between Cork and Donegal was not football and was pathetic to watch.

If the GAA want a football match they should ban that handpass and revert to the original format and appropriately named football, otherwise start a basketball league — then players can use the handpass to their hearts’ content.

Remember the likes of past football greats, Kerry for instance? Players could kick a pass to their colleague with such accuracy that would embarrass William Tell (and he was accurate!).

Do away with the hand pass.
