FQs motives will be explained at CC where your club delegates will have an opportunity to debate. In the meantime all club have received a communication asking them for their opinion.

Is this not how the democratic process works? Also, can't see how this recommendation would increase revenue, if as you say it's all about the money.

Clubs got an email on 15th Dec and asked for their opinion by 29th Dec - this is a major issue and this is really poor way to go about it. Also it wasn't mentioned at at convention

surely at this stage when many clubs have made their plans for 2018 on existing structures we should stay as is for 2018 and set up a working group to produce a detailed report on the changes and how they will improve antrim and if passed give the clubs more notice like in Sept of the year before changes take place....

Would make sense to fall into line with national age groups but as you say, why such short notice.

Just back from a couple of minor games at the under 18 Ulster championship ( will that change age groups then?)

Enniskillen Gaels were impressive and Letterkenny edged out the Armagh winners in extra time

St. Paulís run a tight ship with this competition, well done
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

it is only national age groups at county level and that was leaving cert driven
Dublin clubs voted last year , after an extensive consultation, to stay at u18 at club level
This is too big an issue to rush and we are not ready in 2018 for this
What would senior managers make of a u20 league?

Sure they end up paying more expenses for referees for those games, so lose out surely

Good points. I haven't given this any thought and don't have a position on it. Just curious to know how it could be made out that the county would make more money with a new format.
Senior managers wont prefer an under 20 league and championship in 2019 that's for sure. Too big an overlap of players on both panels.

Great tournament. Hopefully remains as under 18. Think it has to.

I see in Martin Brehenys annual ratings Antrim are 27th for 2017. Fitzy and Adams must be disappointed in this, and Lennys challenge at the end of his tenure must be to see if he can get us out of the twenty somethings. Hopefully he can, someone needs to drive us out of this mediocrity.
