Apart from the finals has TG4 ever shown a live or deferred Division 2 game?

Hopefully Mr Ryan is his own man and the decisions he makes in the years ahead are not influence more by money and profits than common sense.  As the former director of finance I have my doubts if he will do that though.

The only thing consistent about Roscommon is your ability to talk complete and utter shite on this board and God knows where else.

Zlatan going to LA Galaxy contract terminated. Best of luck to him.
Never fully recovered from that awful injury he got last year it seems.

I think there is merit in McGeeneys argument but to do this you would have to accept that players will not be available to play club football in the first 6 months of the year. Also bordom levels do set in towards the end of the League once the relegation promotion issues have been settled. I'm not sure a 14 game campaign playing the same teams would have any great appeal as the League draws to a conclusion.

I don't have a problem with more games but I would scrap the provincials and split the AI series into north, south, east and west (4x8 teams) allow every team to enter the AI championship and then run off a second tier competition for teams knocked out of the main competition in the early rounds. The problem is with that of course is that because of the way the GAA is structured, the provincial councils will want to give up their cut of the gate receipts.

The 'beauty' of the current league structure is that more often than not every game counts.
You're going to the final day with at least one promotion & relegation slot up for grabs.
It's probably the best 'real gaa' day of the year, as usually in addition to needing your own team to win, you're praying for someone else to beat your closest rival, whether it's at the top or bottom of the table.

NFL is the best format the GAA have but those at HQ will likely chop and change that in the years ahead  ::)

I was just reading the many complaints about the 65’s in the hurling yesterday, earlier on I read about players upset at games being played yesterday, more whining about the weather, the backlog,  etc..
Many of the people complaining about the format would also complain about having a replay, player burnout etc..

I’m wondering are we turning soft and becoming a group who like to complain no matter what.  Loads of other examples out there.  Has the average gaa player and supporter lost the plot?  Have we become a showerof whingers?
What do ye think..

“Are we turning soft”. Older people thinking things used to better in the past, a pastime as old as humans themselves.

The answer is no.

The oracle has spoken.  I can close the thread now"..........
If he was old enough he would know a lot of things was better in the past.

A bitterly cold day in Castlebar. Fair dues to Tyrone, they had a plan and they stayed to the script professionally. Mayo were a bit of a mess, not helped by losing Andy, Boyler, Lee and Cillian. The pitch was a mess also with all the sand. But Tyrone had to deal with that also and had to deal with losing a few decent players of their own.

It's been a while since I've seen Mayo people leave a ground with 15 minutes to go! Brought back long forgotten memories.

Tyrone got a decent lead early on a choked the life out of us. Unfair to single out players, as there was not much anyone could do, so was the Lack luster feel there was to Mayo today! Looks like we are destined for division two. No big deal! It's been coming. The League (especially this year) has seemed a huge inconvenience. Maybe we need Division Two football to blood players and to rest our veterans. Donegal are no world beaters but they have acquitted themselves well in Division One despite lack of points on the board to prove this.

Hopefully today was one of those blips. Or Maybe it's another gradual notch to mark the ending of this decent group! I fear it is more the second. As a collective of Players, Management and fans there are only so many years that the knocks can be taken!
A real eye catching result that in Castlebar a case of everything that could go wrong went wrong for Mayo today? Donegal will need Paddy McBrearty, Ryan McHugh and Odhrán Mac Niallais back to win next weekend.

Fermangh Armagh game was dreadful however all that mattered today was Armagh securing promotion without needing to worry about round 7.

And kildare are now officially down to division 2 for next year.

For anyone in division two I would not be doing high fives about that fact!
Armagh coming up from Division three are as good if not better than Kildare.

Kevin De Bruyne will win the PFA player of the year however Mo Salah has to be a close second.
