Will seeding provincials mean potentially even more mismatches

Seeding not required. Just a simple change that itís only the provincial winners guaranteed to be in the Sam Maguire. Losing finalists should not have that guarantee

Provincial championships mean mismatches. The GAA is based on provinces.

Agree with this.

Complete farce
Again Ulster teams are disadvantaged compared to the Dublin & Kerrys
The GAA should just bite the bullet and scrap provincials
When they tried to downgrade them the Ulster crowd roared and shouted and made sure it wasn't passed.
Good. Ulster matters.

Open draw is not a panacea I'd say there would be feck all interest in Waterford v Derry or Antrim v Galway.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

True but how did the grey haired men in suits not figure that one out?

Probably included Finalists at behest of Provincial Councils.

Be interesting to see what type of crowds turn up for the provincial championship with the unusual April start.  NFL and underage games played that time of year aren't overly big attendances. Supporters will also know there is round robin matches ahead and may choose which matches they go to especially nowadays with the cost of living. If the provincial councils want healthy crowds they'll need to cut the prices on tickets and come up with package deals for families.

I'm a strong advocate of the abolishment of the provincials but the back door sorta negates the reasons for it. A 32-team system should have 8x4, instead of 12/9/6/5 and then some kind of evening out.

There are too many people in good jobs provincially and that's understandable.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

The amount of work and effort that is duplicated by having the four provincial councils is just madness.
