Replying To Yondu:  "Have been told the hold up on officially publishing fixtures is because HQ are working out on TV deals. Eir channel is now gone and a few stations are trying to cover Saturday night games"
Sure we all know that Saturday night games are for dublin , even ex-president dublin John horan came out and said it while he was in office.

I think at this stage, counties should be allowed publish details like "weekend of February 5 and 6, home/away v [WHOEVER]", even if the exact dates and times aren't tied down yet.

For what it's worth, have also heard that the delay is down to negotiations re. TV coverage.

Replying To Royal.Legend:  "It's getting to be a joke at this stage, all county supporters know the dates times and opponents for our championship matches which starts in the summer, but we are still in the dark regarding league fixtures which starts in a few weeks, why is it a big secret ?"
Very annoying. The season tickets are on sale here for league with a special offer being cut off in a week from today. Knowing whether, Cork's home football games are being played on a Saturday under lights or Sunday afternoon plays into decision whether to buy or not.

Looking at the proposed fixtures for donegal not the wiki leaked ones looks like away to Dublin and kerry again can't remember when we last had them at home think kerry in lettterkenny must be 10yrs ago is it donegal allows away games here to get the panel away for a weekend. We're going to have a tough run in last 5 games can't see it being easy to pick up points could be down to the wire against armagh in the last game before champs and not an ideal scenario.

A poster was saying previously that the delay has to do with the rights to Saturday night games.

Think we're under the lights in the home of the 6 in a row Vs Armagh, on the 29th. Fingers crossed.

Seems some of the delay was over Mayo trying to wrangle a home match in Croker

Would like to know why Mayo are playing their first round match in Sligo when the limit is 5000 fans and they could accommodate that number in Ballina?

It's max 50% capacity in all grounds so Ballina would only hold around 2500.
