Sure whats new up North. When was the last time Donegal voted yes for anything?
For Dublin to not have two home games in the Super 8s? Now that proposal B is defeated any room on the split season calendar for the McKenna Cup next January?

Mayo not supporting proposal B.
And Derry also. Derry chairman Stephen Barker who was on the fixture task force that put these proposals together said while he's not opposed to change there is too big of decision to make over soundbites and Derry won't be voting in favour of flawed B proposal.

Is there any sport in the world that allows every team into the knock out stages after the league stage is completed? Over 7 games the best teams will qualify and those that miss out can't have any excuses or blame anyone but themselves.

Also under option B the teams in Div 3 & 4 instead of having to play pointless qualifiers just to get hammered for a 2nd time get to compete for a trophy they have a realistic chance of winning. I think that's far more relevant than complaining about being punished for being the 6th best team in an 8 team League
Eight of the ten best teams are probably in Division 1.  Blame themselves while ignoring the fact they will be playing in a far tougher divsion ah now..

a division 4 team needs to win the league so whats tougher for a division 4 team to win their league or a  division 1 team  to come in top 5

The latter as all Division 1 teams would win Division 4.

From Armaghs point of view staying up in Division 1 was seen as progress. Under proposal B teams in Division 2, 3,4 will have a better chance to be one of the 10 teams in the AI series. Such progress will be gone to waste.

Steve Bruce gone
At least Mark Hughes got a year before the sugar daddy owners at Manchester City got rid of him.

Goodbye Proposal B, and good riddance.

GAA finance department dismiss claim 'Proposal B' is the lucrative option for championship reform

Inflated attendance claims and not accounting for juvenile tickets in the calendar review taskforce model was cited for the counterclaim

Make you wonder what Conor O'Donoghue was at.  Inflated attendance claims certainly as I said at the time not hope would Pre season provincial leagues played in February and March will get that type revenue.

Some on the that video should be ashamed of themselves. The GAA should not hold back on the punishment given.
