Cavan making all the right noises about this competition. Ray Galligan saying that Cavan need to stick together and win it. Faulkner saying he wants more silverware in a Cavan jersey. Even recently departed Mackey saying Cavan need to take it seriously and use it to keep the squad united. I still think their stomach for it won't be revealed until they find themselves in a tough contest. The general consensus of Cavan being able to walk this is just way off the mark. Fermanagh, Westmeath, Tipperary have all played this Cavan side in tight games and will have absolutely no doubt they can turn us over on any given day.

It seems that the semi finals and final are both televised, both on TV and final will be on AISF day. I think that's a good prize for the players, don't think anyone in the Tailteann Cup will turn up their nose at that.

It is the best passageway back to Sam Maguire for any of these counties. Summer football, silverware and TV exposure. Down would appear to have already turned up their nose at it judging by O'Hagans comments however.
Hopefully they get relegated again next year then.

It's not the best passageway though. I'm willing to bet a lot of money, that over 80% of the time, the team ago wins it will likely be promoted the next year to make it all moot. The ones who this is needed for, the Division 4 and low Division 3 counties will probably never win this. The split probably shouldn't be 16/16, maybe 20/12 or such. This won't bring on the teams that it needs to

Tipperary the latest to join. Just a matter if Westmeath will or won't tomorrow.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Whatís changed since the back door has been introduced? Ulster champions got initially into 1/4 finals the finalist got into last 16 and everyone else had another go in the qualifying stages to get to final..

The Provincial finals have been diluted long time ago

Even the McKenna cup isnít knock out cup competition
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Provincial winners and finalists to be seeded into four groups with the eight remaining places allocated to highest-ranked counties in the league not already qualified.

 GAA have fixed virtually no football next weekend but squashed all 4 Provincial football finals and the Tailteann Cup first round games all on the same weekend. I think the Champions League final also on that day. Madness. Tailteann will get no coverage or attendances that weekend.

A lot of people have been saying Cavan shouldn't be in this Tailteann cup but by the same measure, shouldn't we swap with Meath and put them into it? Sure they are pure cack

Yes, as we have 17 teams in it. We need to get it down to 15 teams for Round 1 (2 x 7 Round I games, with those 7 winners and New York to make up the Quarter finals). There will be 2 preliminary round games, with the teams who made a semi final of their province (ie Cavan, Tipperary, Westmeath, Sligo, Leitrim) excluded. So 4 teams drawn from the other 10 teams to reduce numbers to 15.

Munster Final at 3 and Leinster Final at 5 on the day of Champions League final.

Let's check all the other sports fixtures, then make no GAA fixtures occur at the same time....
We'll  have games on Tuesday and Thursday mornings only..
