    New Drug Going Around ????

    In the past month I've been aggressively approached twice in supermarket car parks. Now if one of you called me a bollix and tried that... Meh...... I probably am. But these were total strangers. Is there some new drug going around? Symptoms are raw aggression and actively seeking...

    Anyone know the procedure for this? A player plays only hurling in the next parish in a hurling and football club, but wants to play football for their own parish which only play football. Maybe opening a box of worms here but any one aware of the procedure, it must be possible.
