Junior A Football Championship - 2 Like(s)

Replying To MillerX:  "[quote=CastleBravo:  "It's even worse than that, we had voted to reduce all grades to 16 teams, but then a few clubs started rallying around and had the decision reversed! I remember threats of a mass exodus of players (even though only 4 clubs would be affected) because players would be too proud to play junior football. This also despite the fact that until 2010 we had 16 teams in senior and intermediate without any issues!"
Ah I was giving the sanitised version to a neighbour, I am a one finger keyboard man so it would have taken me all night to recount the whole sorry saga but you are right clubs hanging on to a status to which they do not fit but our county board officers have been weak in all matters related to streamlining our competitions and have done no research at all into what works in similar sized counties. It is a waste of time making any proposal as every delegate, many of whom are not at all mandated by their clubs, will have their 'own take' on what is best for them at that moment only. No thought whatever for what may be in the best interests of Meath football or indeed their own club down the line. As to the actual thread on the Junior Championship I get it very hard so beyond C N G."]No worries, my post was meant to complement yours, not correct it!
