So despite complaining about Provincial inequalities you want them retained and strengthened by reverting to the old 1887 to 2000 system?
Isn't Div 1 the NFL "super 8"?

Do you want to abolish the Provincials?

I suppose we nearly all expect Dublin, Donegal and Kerry to win the other 3 Provincials?
We're groping in the dark until the 3rd Round draw next Monday.

I suppose I'd better start taking an interest in this thread now :-\

Welcome back. Missed each other last year in the backdoor.
We're fated to meet in Round 4 probably in bloody Salthill

It's all over for another year so closing the thread.
Good campaign for Galway winning it and beating the 3 next best teams on the way.  Disaster for Sligo, Leitrim at least beat NY which wasn't expected in many quarters.
Poor campaign for us and yesterday esp the 2nd half a major disappointment.
Indeed the last 50 minutes after the first goal we were outscored 14 pts to 1-2.
3 scores in 50 minutes!!!!
Best wishes to all the Connacht teams in the AI series.

Not a lot to be said here.
We got further than expected and bang.
However we were still in it on the scoreboard till the 2nd Rhubarb goal.
Hopefully the many 18 and 19 year olds involved will give us a good platform for this grade next year.

Did you catch the Connacht final this time?
Yes for the third year in a row unlike some Counties :P

Bad defeat yesterday.
Despite Galway's much improved 2nd half,  despite being destroyed in the middle for most of the second half, despite not looking as fit ad Galway .....we had enough attacks to have stayed ahead on that second half... another 4 points and we'd have been off to Salthill next week.
If we had tacked on a few points early 2nd half ....or got one back for every 2 if Galway's. ...
We're just not good enough for long enough against the serious teams and the prospects of facing Dublin in Croker  would tempt you to think a Round 4 defeat might be the best outcome now.
We're a "nice" team not physical or cynical enough (like Galway).

2 of our substitutions yesterday were lads who shouldn't even make the 26 as our cool clean hero gets it wrong again.
A better player than 9 or 10 of the 26 in his civvies yesterday.
Time to face the reality....we are maybe top 10 and no signs of us getting any higher.

Apart from Kilroy's sweeping we hardly could be said to have any defensive system.
We have to pray that like Salthill last year everyone from 2 to 9 burst every gut.

Roscommon,reigning Connacht Champions beating Galway would certainly NOT be a shock.
It would be a very nice half expected  win.
It's all to play for and if our shaky defence put in a good shift we can win it.
I'd be happy that if we're neck and neck going into the last 10 then our bench can get us over the line.
(Of course I'd be much happier if we're 10 points up at that stage...... ;D)

A serious side still without the 2 seniors. Donegal and Galway are probably best placed to compete with them. Kildare and Meath would be a level below while Dublin if they get going will improve more than their Leinster compatriots. Cork might do something but rarely do these days.

Are Galway not gone? Thought Roscommon beat them?
Ahhhhh sure aren't Galway going to win the 4 football All Ireland and some of the hurling ones too.
Mere technicalities like losing to Ros don't  count😀
