|Joe Brolly believes the blanket defence has been proven to be futile in the pursuit of glory and hopes that the process of 'reprogramming' teams will begin this http://www.officialmarlinshop.com/authentic-27-giancarlo-stanton-jersey.html weekend when the National League begins.
The 1993 All-Ireland winner and Sunday Independent columnist told Independent.ie's GAA podcast 'The Throw-In', created in association with Allianz, that the recent successes of Dublin, Mayo and Slaughtneil in debunking the myth that blanket defences are needed for a team to thrive http://www.panthersofficialonlineshop.com/panthers+derek+anderson+jersey will cause a shift in thinking in gaelic football.
The Derry side's incredible exploits in the Ulster club scene in recent years, Dublin's demolition of Tyrone in last year's All-Ireland semi-final and Mayo's tag as the Dubs' most dangerous rival bear that out
Damian McErlain has taken charge of the Oak Leaf team and Brolly believes the new Derry boss will Craig Robertson Authentic Jersey abandon the tactic of getting 14-men behind the ball.
Asked which team he was most looking forward to seeing in the national League, Brolly said: "I'm going up to Celtic Cortez Kennedy Jersey Park on Sunday to see Derry and because, for the first time in a long time, we've got a manager that isn't a carpet bagger.
"He's a Derry man, he's been heavily immersed in his own club. He has only ever taken underage teams in his own club and then the Derry minors. So we're optimistic that we're going to see the start of a reprogramming process because we've been involved in that abysmal blanket defending for six years.
"The spectacle has deteriorated and what we really want to see now is a bit of football being played.
"The big hope for gaelic football followers and I think a message that is starting to spread now is that surely coaches must now be seeing that the way to play gaelic football is to push up man-to-man, to pressurise any blanket defences, to hem them in and not let them out and I think what Dublin did last year was the perfect illustration of the fact that if a team plays with confidence and pushes up and man-marks the sweepers then the opponent becomes hemmed in and the result http://www.packersfootballofficialshop.com/authentic-kenny-clark-jersey.html becomes inevitable.
"The hope would be, for people who have been evangelising for gaelic football which is more or less everybody except the vested interests and the paid coaches, that this will be the turning point.
"You look at Slughtneil. They have been religiously man-to-man and they've won Dan Hamhuis Authentic Jersey three Ulster club titles out of the last four during a period when almost every team is going with blanket defences and dropping back behind the 45.
