The gaa plan to break each division into 2 groups of 4 geographically to cut down on unnecessary travel and each team will get at least 3 games with the top team from each group playing each other in the final so will they will get 4 games.

Personally when they're deciding to do this could they just not have each team in a group play home and away that way every team get at least 6 games and 2 teams get 7 games.

Aye, try cut down the travel by having double the proposed number of games. .

I know but league is used to blood new players and to try out new tactics I don't think managers will learn a lot in 3 league games so what you'll get then is teams having a lot of challenge matches which none of us will be able to watch.

Good point but they'll probably just have the 3 games to cut any fixture congestion that could happen.

Ah it's a good idea financially and health wise in fairness as it cuts down on a lot of the travelling, if right was right we'd have been travelling to ballyboffey in February and possibly Armagh as well if they manage to get promoted to div 1 and yer selves and monaghan would have had to travel down here.

To be honest, I wouldn't be making any plans I couldn't change.

Things are still fluid.
