Paying managers would 'open up the floodgates' - Brogan

ALAN BROGAN has admitted that paying inter-county managers in a regulated manner could spark similar demands from players.

"Yeah, there's no question," the Dublin forward predicted. "It can open the floodgates a little bit. I think it'd be a dangerous road to go down, to be honest. But how else do you do it? I don't know."

Brogan has given little thought to Páraic Duffy's discussion document - released last week - focusing on the long-running problem of managerial payments, which are contrary to GAA rules on amateur status.

"It's not something I'm overly-interested in, but I think they have to do something about it," he said.

"I don't think under-the-table payments are the way to go, and they are obviously going on somewhere if they are discussing it. I haven't been exposed to it a huge amount, certainly not in my own club or my own county."
