Reports of a few early club managerial shake ups.
Bryansford - Fegan + Deegan gone.
Mayobridge - Poacher + Clarke gone.
Clonduff - McBride gone.
Castlewellan - Grant gone.
Downpatrick - Robinson gone.
Bredagh - Mason + Dawson gone.
Longstone - Morgan gone.
Some amount of jobs on the merry-go-round coming up.

In other news, CL has started to contact prospective players for next year, a few lads have already had a phone call, reportedly training is set to be a real test this side of Christmas with tullyamore forest park and sand dunes earmarked for some gruelling running sessions, survival of the fittest coming very soon
You are so full of crap with this list.

Back from johns saval game, few Johnnies need worry more about the fundamentals of the game rather than who looks more like a highlighter.

Iíd be completely stunned if Mickey Moran re-entered management at any level. Different going to the big games for a bit of extra guile or ideas but not full time. Jim Gavin may be tempted though. Pete, not so sure about that either, didnít go well with his own club although passionate about football.

All semis in Pairc Esler? Dates and times set?

All in the marshes

Mickey might be enticed if the package was good. It would be some coup but Gavin would probably be a better option.
  Mickey Moran or Jim Gavin won't be near Burren any time soon.Dreaming.

Speaking of big calls by officials, was up at the Rostrevor Clone game on Friday eve and referee completely robbed Annaclone at the death. Blew the whistle with the ball sailing over the black spot. It must be Rostrevorís year after that going for them. They will walk the IFC, prominent Rostrevor Committee men in The Kilbroney Bar telling me they are already planning a training weekend for Ulster prep.
ďProminentĒ. You sound like Truth Hurts.Jesus!!!!!!

clowns like you OgraAnDun on this Board.

Can anyone tell me is next season or the following season that the big teams are allowed to enter reserve teams into the all-county leagues??
Je-us,you ask some stupid questions.

Its a common enough practice in other counties.
I know it is but this has never been discussed at County Board level in Down.TH is just an irritant.

This has been discussed on numerous occassions and Burren are mad to enter a reserve team in ACL
  It has never been formally proposed at Convention.Put yourself up for election and make all the things you continually suggest happen.

It's mad to think that Glenn is in trouble of heading to division 3, they need a win in the Stone tomorrow night
Thatís the way leagues work.

In roughly 12 hours youíve gone from wondering why D2 teams arenít competitive at reserve level, to recommending seeding so we can ensure that it never happens again.

Youíre hard to keep up with.

Teachers.. you know what there like, career gets in the way of their drinking hobby, get a bit dopey during the summer so they do
And the other 3 seasons also.

Think itís rough on whoever goes down because so many team have equipped themselves really well in Division 1. I wouldíve liked to have seen a 4th bottom v 2nd in D2 play off to make sure we get the strongest D1 possible in 2023.

I'd have to disagree with this. In the last four years, only four promotion spots have been made available to Div 2 teams (2018 - 1, 2019 - 1, 2020 - 0, 2021 - 2). From those four teams that went up, Loughinisland (2018), Carryduff (2019) and RGU (2021) all could go on to be safe this year, so what's to say that Div 2 teams coming up won't be strong and can't hold their own?
I'd also argue that a lack of relegation last year may have potentially saved Loughinisland or Bryansford, two teams who may end up being safe this year when in any other year could have been playing Div 2. Point here is that they got a free pass last season, why give them another escape route?

Fourth bottom in Div 1 is in theory a lot stronger than 2nd in div 2, and a playoff would likely reflect that  Thus maintaining a stronger Div 1 and possibly avoiding sending another team down to div 2, to trounce the bottom half of that division. So many relegations in one season is ridiculous. Leagues could have been restructured over 2 seasons. While it maybe meant less dead rubber games towards the end of this season, it could mean we get more non-competitive games next season. Applies to other divisions too, as between top and bottom in each division there is quite a difference in standard (in my humble opinion).
  The process was voted in by the County Board earlier in the year.Spilt milk and all that.

I understand the tiebreaker for two or more teams is H2H, but what is the tiebreaker for 3 or more teams on same points? is it a H2H minileague or straight score difference? i see three teams are on 17 and Loughinisland on 15 so it is very possible a team could go down based on tiebreaker
2 is H2H,More than two itís point difference.

Down better going with 30 players who want to play for Down and not disappear to America, Australia or drop if the panel. Derry went through 107 players in less than 10yrs, it was a joke. Down beat Derry in Newry 2yrs ago. Gallagher got rid of maybe 8/10 players I have thought good enough to start / on the panel. Due to either attitude or couldn't commit. Down gonna go the same way. Derry keep Slaughtneil on board to backbone the team, Kilcoo seem to they too good for the county team.
I think we're all up for building for the future but if we look back at the most recent plan prior to this,we know the results of that by our current situation.Who was in charge of implementing that and who is in charge of bringing this latest idea to fruition?The answer to this is critical as to the prospects of this plan succeeding.
  Canít get my head around James and Co. staying on.Dressing room has long been lost and will probably not be got back.Just leave and letís have a clean sweep of the whole set-up.
    Thank the Lord!Common sense has prevailed.Let's get it right this time.
