The reason play-offs were introduced into the club football leagues were to compensate clubs playing games without their county reps, particularly important in a county like Tyrone where the tradition is that league placement determines championship status - although they do sit somewhat awkwardly in how the club season has been structured in recent years where they're played as an after-championship set of games where competing teams can be waiting a number of weeks depending how clubs involved in respective play-offs fair in their respective championships and thus I can see why quite a few people would like to see them got rid off. The two issues I'd have is that doing so penalises smaller clubs have miss having players in the league due to county commitments (the "starred" game system is a very imperfect solution) as well as increasing the potential amount of dead rubbers in the latter part of the season, especially in Division 3. As an example, the promotion play-off system is keeping our (Fintona) boys interested in playing in the league competitively, without it the latter half of our fixtures this year - at least - would be glorified challenge games.

As I said a wee while back, even if Divisions 1 & 2 stick to 16 teams each next year, at least have some sense to divide Division 3 into A & B leagues either next year or in 2024 so that most Junior football teams will have something to compete for during most of the league. And while I'm at it, have 3 automatic promotion/relegation places between Division 1&2 too at least. Otherwise it's perfectly possible for an Intermediate team to lose only two games during the county season next year (1 league, 1 championship) and not end up being promoted.

100% agree

Derrytresk would be similar size to ourselves, maybe slightly bigger. When we were flying 20 years ago Derrytresk were scraping by much like we are now, before they had a few great years - all swings and roundabouts.

Is it time for Killyman and Brocagh to join up at senior level


Happening at underage. Both senior teams been in d3 a long time, getting hammerings tonight. Change is good.

There is a huge gap between top and bottom of d3 - Aghaloo and Stewartstown will give out a few hammerings this year.

Killyman will come good again - we'd 10 of the  best years in our history in 2000s, now we're struggling but throwing in the towel isn't the answer.

We've good numbers at the younger age groups- they are the answer to keeping Killyman alive.

But even Brolly was a dose at times. When he focused on the games he was good, but then he would go off on one.
There is zero homework done and they are getting a few quid.

Sky and BBC are so far ahead, but as I said the technical crew are the same really. Like I said, clean house and raid the podcasts.
I miss aul Jimmy Smyth all the same.  He was great on BBC.

Absolute class act is Jimmy Smyth, still going on various fringe games, should be doing high profile Ulster games

He was/is unreal. Always remember him and Peter McGinnity commentating on The Championship in the early 90's "And it's that man [insert name of point scorer]"
