Such is the nature of modern day inter county management in the GAA world, that the general public get to hear quite a lot about what the main movers and shakers have to say.
And, when you have a guy as comfortable and accomodating with the media as Tipperary Boss Michael Ryan, you can be sure that there will be soundbites aplenty and ample opportunity to assess the psyche and test the water in terms of what he is thinking.
That has happened quite a lot this season already, but one word is now emerging in the vocabulary which had been absent for some time in Tipperary - maturity.
See this weeks Tipperary Star for full colour pullout preview with interviews with Ryan, defender Ronan Maher and a comprehensive appraisal of Michael Cahill's role within the team. Don't miss it. We also preview the minor final Tipp vs Limerick.
