Decisions are increasingly made in a Dublin based bubble

Wasn't the "split season"  passed overwhelmingly by Congress?

When has congress ever really done the right thing? Passes what shouldn't, rejects what should. They're dependable that way. Either way, this needs to change somehow, having bulk of teams done for the year by June and clashing with otehr sports is silly.

Unless you actually play the sport , and then it's a massive improvement. This change was made because it was pushed by club players who want to have a championship that starts in the summer and isn't compressed. This backlash against the split season has mainly been driven by the media, who are only looking after their own needs.

I still play club. It is an improvement for the club player, no doubt there. But there needs to be a middle ground. I will love playing club at the height of the summer, but I'm an intercounty supporter too. Playing our elite game, which makes the money and such, all Spring and competing against other sports, when there's nothing all summer when the usual GAA summer window is empty of other sports does not make sense. You could push it out to August even, and still finish club season off on time. This was teh 1st year of it, and for me it's just running off things too early. Adjust again for next season

;D ;D  the whole congress setup isn't good, with the 60% majority needed, and the votes central council has. You need a huge majority of the boards to get anything past. We've seen really good motions get rejected, and then they pass something barely discussed. the system isn't right there

Dublin hurling championship starting 20th July and the football will be 2 weeks after.  I say a lot of players will be missing due to travelling for the summer.

Not many. But every player in the country will have championship in July. Even in Dublin where the championship has in recent years been run in a blitz of a few weeks in Autumn.

The club All-Ireland semi-finals will be the weekend of 10/11 December in all 3 grades (senior, intermediate and junior).  Connacht v Ulster and Leinster v Munster in all competitions, although Ulster junior winners must play a quarter-final game v the winners representing Britain.

All-Ireland finals are set for 7/8 Jan 2023 for junior and intermediate grades, with the senior final on 15 Jan 2023.

This weekend has the rugby semis and the second last weekend of the Premier League ahead of the champions league final. Lads will watch any kind of sport.  The GAA are nuts.

Yep, rugby and soccer in centre stage now, GAA left behind.

Even apart from that the 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.
