Since the League competition was reasonably successful, let's see who can topple David McKeown in the white-hot Championship contest.

The Championship Competition will be run week by week.  Since there must be a result on the day in every game except the All-Ireland final, contestants must pick the team that advances. 

Pick the winning team correctly and you get 1 point.  A bonus point is available for getting the margin of victory correct, within a 3-point band.  Band 1 is 1-3 points, so if you pick 1, 2 or 3 point margin, you get the bonus point.  Band 2 is 4-6 points; Band 3 is 7-9 points, and so on upward in 3-point increments.
 
Contestants need only pick the margin of victory in points, as was in the League competition.  I’ll translate it to bands as I input the selections.  So a pick that reads “Tyrone by 2” and if Tyrone win by 1,2 or 3 you get the bonus point in addition to the 1 point for getting the winning team correct.  There is no additional bonus for getting the margin exactly right.

Extra time is not considered here…if Tyrone win by 2 after 70 minutes or after extra time, the margin of victory is 2.  The only difference is for a game that is decided by penalties: the winning team is deemed to have a 1 point winning margin, no matter how many penalties are taken.

The Tailteann Cup will also be included in the competition

Not to be one to criticise but is band 1 not really 4 choices. 0-3 rather than 1-3 if a penalty win counts as a 1 point win. I meant to say this during the league but didn’t want to look like I was interfering. Also forgot to pick 1 point wins that day because I am an idiot

The organiser and the champ at loggerheads and the Championship hasn't thrown in. One more poster joins in and we have a melee
