Cork has just produced the most depressing reason for cancelling a Sunday morning league game

You only think you have problems.

Sunday morning league football is supposed to be a good hobby. You get out of bed early, it helps freshen you up from the night before and you get to run around kicking a football before you can sit back and watch the professionals or just enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

"That's not f**king good enough!"

"We haven't started."

"Jesus Christ, don't let him do that to you."

Usually it's the boys who are moaning the most that are actually doing the least.

But then the games just get called off on a whim with barely any notice and that's heartbreaking as it is because a lot of teams spend the whole weekend trying to cobble together 11 players just to field a team.

But, sometimes, it comes back from the other direction.
