Is there starred games this weekend...

Yes..... The remainder of the games will be starred and they are holding the one remaining non star game to be fixed the week before championship starts so that clubs have 1 league fixture before the championship kicks in

County Team needs full preference at this stage it is only fair....There are some team around the bottom that this will not suit....

The 5 starred games are identified at the start of the year, no matter when there played they all have to be played at some stage so it was never going to suit those clubs.

Cant Argue there.  Plenty on here rightly criticise CCC with fixtures but this year things have run very well and credit is due.  To have the majority of the league campaign wrapped up mid July is unheard off.  Micky didn't demand games off he let the lads play and his change of approach is also to be welcomed.  He now has the rest of the season to work with the county set up with the last non-starred game being saved until championship is fixed

Is this weekends game definitely a starred one then? I know its starred round 3 so assume it is too but just checking it hasn't changed. I did think the 5 games was the maximum number of starred games and there could be less depending on progress of the fixtures. But at the same time 13 days out from a quarter final they might be happy to let the county team focus on that.

Though the club games have worked well to date for the county players and it is hard on the players in the squad not getting game time without them. It's obviously also hard on clubs who really need the points to miss their best player or players.

Next three games are all due to be starred providing Tyrone progress through the QF, leaving one last non-starred game to be placed once Tyrone are bate.

regarding your second quote, I think that this is an issue. I think Dungannon or someone similar at top of Div 2 have Aghyaran coming up which will be a starred fixture. this is a massive game for both clubs and a win could go towards securing the league and promotion. With Aghyaran missing Ronan McHugh alone they have lost a major scoring threat which could affect their promotion. I think Ronan had No.28 on him at weekend so hasn't been in the squads lately. I know that Killyclogher were allowed to play Sean Fox in starred fixture when he was on the panel.

another example is Cahir McCullagh at Greencastle, they are at the wrong end of the table and Cahir is a massive player for them

League fixtures have been run of pretty quickly this year compared to others. Starred fixtures will always have a bearing especially at the business end of the season. Greencastle, Ahayaran and Div 3 leaders Owen Roes are but just a few which will be affected by it. However you couldn't hold it all off now until Tyrone are beat. Would only disrupt the club season further and annoy a lot of club players!!

Starred games are set in stone.  Clubs are aware of them before a ball is kicked.  There is only 1 non starred fixture remaining and that wont be played until Tyrone exit the Championship.  I cant see to many county men opting out of the panel at this stage.

Dungannon also missing big McNulty so even enough at the end of the day.

I'd disagree there I think McHugh and McNamee are massive losses for Aghyaran compared to McNulty for Dungannon but I guess thats just the way it is for having county men. No other way around it unfortunately.

Don't think he left the panel, if he did its news to me.  And McNulty doesn't equate to McHugh and McNamee there is a huge advantage to Dungannon in that league game and I expect them to win it by a fair margin.

This is the point I was trying to say, I was seeing McNulty and McNamee as cancelling each other out.

Really??? McNamee is a superior player in every part of the game (in my opinion).  Also then taking away McHugh's scoring threat leaves Dungannon with a major advantage.

Why is this round starred? Qtr final is not until end of the month.....I see a case for resting some players if carrying knocks but some other players could do with a competitive game. Even using the example of the Dungannon v Aghyaran match both McNulty and McHugh could play and rest McNamee....... Cahir McCullagh should definitely play too......Richard Donnelly...Darren McCurry, Harry Loughran, Michael Cassidy, Justin McMahon etc
