Benny Coulter slams defensive nature of game

Updated: March 23, 2011

Down star Benny Coulter has slammed the current state of Gaelic football, saying that it has become overly-defensive and is no longer enjoyable to watch.

In an interview with the Irish Independent, the full forward is quoted as saying:

“Something has to give — it is a defender’s game. What supporter wants to pay €13 in to watch two teams and see who defends the best? I’d rather pay a fiver in to watch a good club match.

“It’s all about how many men can you get behind the ball and then break on the counter-attack, like soccer.”
