GAA President: Cork's Christy Cooney
Páraic Duffy has acknowledged that he has "no idea" what will become of his discussion paper on forbidden payments to GAA managers. 
GAA President Christy Cooney last week revealed that the document, which has been circulated among members of the Association’s Management Committee (Coiste Bainistí), may never be published or acted upon.
This is an issue which senior members of the GAA feel is striking at the heart of the amateaur ethos of the GAA.
"It is a matter for Coiste Bainistí what they want to do with it"  -  says Cooney.
Duffy appears to be frustrated by the reluctance to openly debate the issue of managers being paid.
Managers is not only issue needing addressing by Croke Park

Sources close to Coiste Bainisti believe some of the suggestions listed in the paper are too drastic to even consider releasing into the public domain. However, Duffy’s intention has been to stir debate about payments to managers and come to a conclusion about dealing with the issue of the GAA’s amateurism being flouted.
As he wrote in his 2010 annual report: "The least acceptable option is to continue to proclaim a value and, at the same time, ignore it. Andexpressing a determination to address the issue is meaningless unless followed by effective action."
