Re to Dreadnought

I dont know why you keep harping on that North so much harder. Tipperary  limerick, Offaly and Wicklow
North was Cavan, Derry, Longford and Fermanagh.

The weakest Southern team beat Cavan to send Cavan down to 4. Limerick are in Division 2 next year. Tipperary are as good as Cavan. Offaly unlucky to be relegated from Division 2,and have some promising All Ireland U20 players

Tipperary were relegated last year, as were Wicklow this year. They lost every game in the group stage last year, and stayed up with a playoff ambush with 3 goals against Cavan. Offaly dropped back down this year too (might be promising players coming, but weren't there last year), and Limerick went up this year on the back of what looks to be a overall poor Division 3 this year.

By any measure, and by prior performances and standing, the North was harder. I just did not see any reason or rationale why it needed to be geographic split. It was nonsensical. A proper season with 7 games is the way to determine who goes up or down, not making up the rules as they go along. And then to draw the Championship based on this? Was a joke overall...

Tipperary were without a number of players last year. They beat Cavan in the League and should have won the league final.

It was a short year last year because they had a short window with covid.

I don't know why its North and South this for the Tailtean Cup

As were Cavan, with lads out with Covid and such. And yes, they won in the League stage this year, but why should they have won in the final? Cavan were deservedly ahead at the end, getting the goals when needed and such. 4 worldie points by Tipp midfielder kept them in it. And sure they hit the bar, but that alone doesn't mean they should have won. If that's the logic then we can say Cavan should have won Sunday as they hit the bar too. If my Auntie had balls...

And yes it was a Covid disrupted year, yet they finished the finals early last year. There was time. or at least don't put so much on so few games. there was talk the year before about suspending promotion or relegation. I just think it was silly to do so on so few games, when it affected some teams more than others depending on lockdowns, or how Covid affected their squad was. It was never a good idea, especially then basing the split Championship on League positions the year after.

I don't know either. there is really no need for it, considering the teams from each likely play each other regularly anyway in their own provincial championship.

Tipperary looked the better period for long periods of the League final and ,Im not talking about the goal chances. Plenty of Cavan supporters weren't impressed with the performace. You think different, thats your opinion..

as for your aunty and uncle rubbish, you're lamenting the South side being weaker, but the weakest team Wicklow beat Cavan

Westmeath have lots of good footballers, Heslin, Ronan O Toole, Kieran Martin, Ray Connellan.  They should give Kildare a decent game in Leinster,but Kildare should come through.

Tipperary v Limerick should be close. It went to extra time in 2020. Tipperary need to win to avoid playing in Tailtean Cup. Stephen O Brien is back playing with them, missed the whole league

There wasn't anything wrong with what Bonner said. Cavan were playing a low level , they weren't playing that well either.

He won't have Donegal as complacent as 2 years ago. Derry thumping Tyrone last weekend a further reminder that Donegal have to be up for it.

The noise already is there will be barely any promotion or media coverage.

I mean the GAA and broadcasters can barely promote the Sam Maguire properly so that's no real shock.There needed to be some perks tied in even have the winners re enter Sam Maguire later on like Joe McDonagh later on. As it is, it's going to fail.

They is no live coverage until the semi finals.
Questionable of the Sunday game will do any highlights packages of the earlier rounds as well.
Sure why would they

That's the biggest issue this competition has.
The Gaa have shown how they promote the tiered competitions in hurling and this will be no different.
Live on YouTube next year I could nearly guarantee.
Year after it will be over by the middle of June to leave more time for the better counties.

Nice refreshing interview today from one of the Down lads in the Irish News .
Calls a spade a spade

There wasn't much refreshingly about the interview. He says he wants Down to compete in the all ireland series,well go an win the Tailtean Cup and he won't have to moan next year

O Hagan says if given the chance would be want an All Ireland or Tailtean Cup, and says All Ireland medal. Talk about stating the obvious

And says Down should be back competing in the All Ireland Series.  They are in Division 3 next year, and winning  the Tailtean Cup is  a route back to playing in the Ireland series

They have a good team and a good management in place. Kildare went with a lot of outside managers  McGeeney,Jason Ryan, Jack O Connor.

Glen Ryan , Dermot Early  Anthony Rainbow and Johnny Doyle were top players,which would give young Kikdare players a lift

G Cody doesn't come across well with that Handshake.

He doesn't come across well a lot of the time. He was a bull a few years ago with Marty Morrissey after winning the All Ireland.

Derry have a very solid team. McKeigue, Rodgers and McKinnless are very good backs.  Glass in midfield is quality, McGuigan a good forward. Maybe lack another dynamic forward. Loughlin a good free taker, but doesn't offer much from play.

An open 32 county competition would just result in a lot of hammerings. Maybe a few close games depending on the draw. I

Sligo and Down hammered today. Wexford have scored just 1 pt in the first half. Some of these counties think they are above the Tailtean Cup

Trump is no longer cruising. 14-14 each. An O Sullivan v Williams final would be equally as good
