GA Fail[edit]

Unfortunately, I do not believe that this article meets the standards for Good Articles at this time. There is a serious need for copyediting. The information is good, but the writing needs to be cleaned up. A few of the problems:

  1. The subsections (eg. October, December) should be combined to form larger paragraphs.
  2. References need to go after punctuation. This is inconsistent throughout the article, as some are placed after punctuation, some are placed before punctuation, and some are placed in the middle of sentences.
  3. Verb tense needs to be consistent. A sentence like "On 12 December the Cork footballers take a team holiday..." should not be in the present tense.
  4. Commas are needed after introductory clauses. For example, "On 20 December the County board and the players held the first..." needs a comma after "December".
  5. Quotations need to be sourced and placed in quotation marks. This is a problem in the "Last days of the strike" section.
  6. The "Outcome of the arbitration" would work better as prose than as a bullet list.
  7. Abbreviations need to be explained the first time they are used. The article doesn't indicate what "GAA" stands for, and "CCCC" should be placed in parentheses after the first mention of "Central Competitions Control Committee". (ie. On 19 February the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC)..."
  8. References should use the proper template. See Wikipedia:Citing sources. All references should have at least a title, publisher, url and accessdate.
  9. Consitency is needed for the dates. Some back-to-back sentences use different formats (eg. On December 10... On 20 December...).
  10. En dashes, not hyphens, should be used for scores. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Dashes.
  11. The biggest issue is copyediting. Much of the prose is choppy (it reads like a list--On 3 February, this happened. On 5 February, this happened.--it needs to flow better). Some of the grammatical problems should have been caught before nomination. For example, "Which lead Wexford's chairman to accuse the GAA and the CCCC of "making the rules up as they go along" is an incomplete sentence, uses the wrong verb tense and doesn't end with punctuation. Listing it at Wikipedia:WikiProject League of Copyeditors is recommended, and a peer review would be a very good idea.

I feel that the required changes necessitate a fail at this time. I hope to see this relisted after thorough copyediting and fixing of these issues (and perhaps some others that I didn't list here). I hope you have found this review helpful and that it will give you a good idea of where this article needs to go. Best wishes, GaryColemanFan (talk) 17:05, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
