Replying To CiarraiMick: "I thought it has been a fantastic league this year in all the divisions. Some great results and exciting promotions etc. On division one Monaghan survive again. Unreal. Surprised and sorry to see Armagh go down. A very talented team and unlucky in a couple of games. Would nt write them off in the championship if they find the right positions for certain players. Rossies a breath of fresh air. Hope Donegal sort out their off field problems. Looking forward to the finals now."
I second that. Some good games in testing conditions. There was a bit more intensity in the league this year -It's shaping up to be an exciting open championship.
Replying To endgame: "Armagh won't be sending any bouquets to Mayo. Mayo playing a largely second string team played a big part in relegating Armagh. Mayo at full tilt would have beaten Monaghan. There's an unfairness there somewhere."
If you don't take care of your own business then you can't complain. However in such a competitive Division it was unfortunate a county decided to effectively turn one of the rounds into a challenge match, there isn't a lot the GAA can do about it as each team will look after themselves. We'll know in the next two weeks if their decision cost them momentum; if Galway win the league final and Roscommon win the championship game the decision made yesterday might be questioned.
