Replying To Hawkeye9212:  "Teams should be playing a wide spread of teams in a league. Wicklow won't gain by playing London, Wexford, and Limerick twice."
Will they gain much by playing Antrim, Waterford, Sligo, Carlow and Leitrim instead though? I think a league should try to be equal for all teams, not affected by where and in what sequence you play your opponents. Playing teams twice can add to competitiveness and create a bit of rivalry.

They'll gain more than by playing three teams twice. Might as well just have a four tier championship.

Replying To Hawkeye9212:  "Reduce the League to three divisions of 11, 11, and 10. The third division has a spot reserved for Kilkenny if they ever want to rejoin. Add in the provincials and a straight knockout All-Ireland series for the 4 provincials champions, Tier 2 champions, and top 11 placed teams in the League. Every teams gets a minimum 11-12 games.

To use Donegal as an example.

10 League games + 4 Ulster games + 4 All-Ireland games = 18 games."
