Irish GAA sports gambling fans can now look back on an exciting 2012 season, and concentrate their sports gambling activities in other areas. Kilkenny finally achieved their 34th All Ireland Senior Hurling championship with a win over Galway in the replayed final, and from all reports it was some party when they got back to Kilkenny. The 2012 All Ireland Senior Football championship was won by Donegal in what may be the last final played under the current rules. Gaelic football gambling fans will be aware that there has been concern for some time that the game is not providing the excitement that it used to, and that the Rules Committee are in the process of consulting with Irish Gaelic football fans about potential rule changes to redress the balance, particularly with regard to the hand pass and the apparent lack of accurate kicking which has crept into the Irish game. The online consultation finished on Saturday and we understand that they have received more than 3,000 responses from Gaelic football gambling fans. This sort of response tends to indicate that the football fans remain committed to the game but are also well aware that something needs to change. Whatever the outcome of this consultation process, here at gambling.ie we totally applaud the decision to consult with the fans. We understand that there are as many as ten potential rule changes under discussion and that there will be an announcement in the very near future as to the conclusions of the Rules Committee. Certainly all the clubs will be keen to incorporate the new rules into their training as soon as possible, and the Gaelic football gambling fans who responded to the questionnaire will also be eagerly awaiting the results of their efforts.
