Final Nail In The Coffin

Replying To Itsme:  "Of the suggestions I've read to date, I'd be completely against

1. No relegation / promotion within the league
2. 5 pointer matches
3. 9/9/10/10 teams in leagues

1. There would be far too many meaningless games and I for one don't buy the , a match is a match approach - just look at the ACC for example.

2. 5 pointer matches - just can't get my head around that. That's madness.

3. There is a reason why Div 3 had to split to 3A/3B very recently. Now you want to go back to basically a Division 3 (would become Division 4) league.


The only thing I can agree to is home/away matches and the idea of playing more star games. The league should carry on without county players, as some people suggest "it's only the league after all". The League matches would be on the weekend and county manager can effectively give the go ahead to players not in his 26 for that weekend to play with the club."

In this format all 4 leagues look very competitive.
Home and away fixtures with plenty of football for all club players with relegation and promotion.
2 points for a win in every game.
Fixtures made at the start of the year and only changed if both clubs agree or there is a death in a club but the fixture must be played before the next round of games.
At the end of the day all we want is a master fixture list so lads can plan their lives and that there is plenty of football for the club player.
As other posters have said, we need to play league matches without county players. EVERY OTHER COUNTY DOES.

Championship fixtures distributed and then taken back as a club maintained they were not playing on a particular date. County Board changed it up to suit. I give you Louth GAA............

Why? Each team gets a bye week in both rounds. The old division 3 had an odd number of teams and it seemed alright.

How many weeks has your club been without football in the current format?
At least this way you will know when you are getting a week off

why put 20 teams in the bottom 2 divisions and 18 teams in the top 2?

There is currently 24 teams in the Top 2 divisions. This proposal is to bring 6 teams out of this.

Like I previously there is a reason 3B was brought in. If anything it should be 10,10,10,8.

None of the clubs are interested in doing anything to change system. 2journalists were asked to leave by the chairman last week for what reason? That was a chance for some delegates to make a stand or decision...6 men walked out. Defiance would have been everyone walked out in protest

Word is that there was another walk out last week at a Management meeting. 6 officers walked out.

What's happening at all.
