#214 Sanctions, transfers go through for US GAA but same ol’ for TV rights!

Last weekend’s annual GAA Congress in Mullingar, Co Westmeath, saw US GAA or North American County Board (NACB) (excl New York) delegates go away relatively happy with all motions offered, passed.
A sticky issue for some divisions last year was on the matter of players Sanctions for those coming out from Ireland and not having J1 Visa’s.
Out of Motion 29 came the ruling that any player ‘eligable’ for a J1 Visa is allowed to have a sanction, while Motion 30 sees the deadline for sanction players to the NACB region extended from July 1st to July 20th. In Motion 31, the home based US player gets some leeway as their Inter-County transfer deadline to register with a club is being extended from December 31st to March 31st.
However, it seems though there has been no real progress on the TV rights issues or the showing of Gaelic sports online.
GaelicSportsCast spoke to new NACB PRO Tim Flanagan on Saturday evening about the how the changes affect American GAA and of the ongoing issue of TV access.
