Problem with that is we have to hold on to the nettle for three years now. And it'll be the clubs and the weaker counties, the 99.9%, that will feel the sting for three more years than they have to. Short sighted and dollar orientated.

Bottom line is that what we have isn't working so whatever about the weaknesses of a round robin it's worth experimenting with until we are willing to grasp the nettle and make real changes.

The current system works better only if your only concern is the bank balance of the GAA. Tell clubs and counties that aren't Dublin or Mayo or Kerry it offers them any advantage or improvement.

I do wonder sometimes about you, Zulu.

I'd say the feeling would be mutual.
In fact most of  us here wonder about Syfīn all the time.

Something in the "Independent "(sic) today about the CPA not announcing their master fixtures blueprint just yet.
They had to revise it after the Congress decision to adopt the "Super 8" and they are in discussion with other "stakeholders".
It's believed their plan provides for dedicated weekends for Club fixtures and an AI Intermediate Inter County football championship.
