Gerald resigns

Breaking news a short time ago that the inevitable has happened and Gerald Mac has resigned tonight - http://www.irishtimes.com/sports/gaa/2009/0310/1224242653438.html. It's a terrible shame that it has come to this and that this event will be a black mark on the career of a distinguished player and coach.
Ultimately, it's the fact that the board put Gerald in this position first day and he was possibly too proud too hang it up after two average years.
The county board used him as a pawn in their efforts to control the Cork team's and unfortunately he allowed himself to be used in this. Hopefully now the clubs will follow through and ensure the second motion on the role of club delegates is upheld also.
