The junior and intern are uneven playing fields; teams playing division 1 playing in both; hows that work against teams who play out of division 2 and 3! The rock is a genuine strong division 3 team! How come kerry teams in division 1 can play junior! Does not make sense!!

The Kerry set-up seems to be an anomaly alright.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Pretty simple - in Kerry they decouple their leagues from their championships at All-county level. To be promoted to the Intermediate grade you must win the Junior Championship (or Premier Junior Championship as I understand it now), league standing does not come into it. This is the opposite to the likes of Tyrone where championship status is dependent on league standing albeit that Intermediate & Junior championship winners gain automatic league promotion. Some counties are similar to Tyrone in this regard, while others are closer to Kerry albeit without the Divisional team setup. Fermanagh for example has only 8 senior clubs and to be promoted to it you must at least reach the previous years' Intermediate final (i.e. two teams go up, two go down), league standing has no say in what championship you play. And with a ten team Division 1 in their league, there will be at least two non-senior clubs competing in the top flight.

Same in Mayo kinda. League placing has no bearing on championship grade. Kilmaine for instance played in Division 1 last year. Got relegated. Were intermediate last year too, got relegated there too. They'll be junior this year, yet will play Ballina and Westport (think they're in Div 2) in the league.

Well done Westport!
The age profile of that Westport team is unreal. Lee Keegan the oldest player at 27, 5 lads playing today that will be sitting their leaving cert this summer if I heard the commentary correctly.
Colm Moran looks an excellent prospect, Oisín McLoughlin too. Exciting forwards is something Mayo has been lacking (O'Connors apart) so hopefully those lads can keep progressing.

Monivea/Abbey of Galway kicking themselves a bit; maybe the better team V Westport in the Connacht semi-final and outscored them from play by 5-2 but conceded a very soft technical free at the death and then missed a crucial equalising one to lose by a point. Them's the margins.

Only seen bits and pieces. The black card for O'Sullivan at the end shows how stupid the rule is. O'Sullivan did what most would do under current rules and pulled rock player down. The Rock player looked badly hurt and play was stopped for a considerable time. The rule as it stands encourages these dangerous tackles near the end of the game and helps the guilty team break up play. Would make more sense for a black card offence in defense to lead to a 45 and in attack a 21 yard free. If a goal opportunity then a penalty and a yellow or red card.

O'Sullivan has cheek to complain taken out of game.  >:(

Don't mind this 'hit out' nonsense.
The media are always at this craic.
Such and such has 'blasted' someone or something, is another common one.
His actual quote is harmless enough and knowing him he was probably smiling when he said it.

And then the media whinge when they get restricted access to players, or when players go into cliché mode. Is it any wonder?

O'Sullivan can be precious at times but that quote is actually quite amusing. If they lost though it may have been expressed differently.

Have a pair of adjacent Lower Cusack tickets for Friday, if anyone's interested -- they're free (PM if interested).

Many County Leagues started already?  Kerry had their first round this weekend past (Dr. Crokes were granted a postponement).
