Why not?
Is it not all about getting games this time of the year.
Fair enough it's a tough watch for the fans on a cold miserable night but do players not want to be playing games, even if its away from home than training?

Their season might be short enough this year.

the game against Derry has already possibly cost us a couple of players for the first league game according to Geezer in the IN today

Hopefully they're the ones who couldn't kick the ball between the posts.

On a serious note (B flat) the semi-final must be in doubt.

If I was Geezer, Id seriously just consider giving Donegal a walkover

Good job you are not Geezer then, they need to fulfill their obligations, injuries can happen at any time, that said having this game in Ballybofey on a Wednesday night is ridiculous.

True that injuries can happen at anytime but they are more likely to happen in weather conditions like wed is supposed to be. Add in travel time, late getting back, players having to miss work you have to ask is it worth it

This is a semi final where the loser is likely to be the real winner.  Whoever goes through faces the prospect of a chinning if the Red Hard are in the mood.

Unfortunately Dublin dont play in the McKenna cup, Chinnings are subjective!  :P
