Whatever about the weight of the balls if only the could make the darn things more accurate.
It's like the story of the pub darts player who bought top of the range darts on a trip to England. He came home thinking he would be hitting double tops all night long because he had better darts than everyone else.
He was still shit.

chalk it down. I see azzuri's footballs have been 'endorsed' by the Gaa. we bought a few on the cheap to spare the o'neill's we have. come match day if you throw one in they'd tell you fuck off.
as for the opening question. no, they're fine.
as for wind factor, it isn't the millennium stadium football is played in. wind and other conditions make for fine tactic management in my opinion.
The Millennium stadium is not position at the foot of the tallest mountains in the country where as Fitzgerald stadium is. Wind sweeps naturely around there constantly. A genius whoever put the stadium in that place.
