Fitzmaurice after yesterdays game said that the national league is the third most importnat competition for Kerry. I'm presuming that he meant it was behind the munster championship and I find that logic bizarre given the hapless opposition in munster. It's not just a Kerry thing but I find it strange why counties should feel the need to almost feel embarrassed about winning a national title. It is a competition against the 7 other top sides in Ireland in which they came out on top and yet they maintain that a 2 horse (if you are being very kind) provincial race against mid-lower ranked teams has more status than a national title. Just don't get that flawed logic at all.

The hapless opposition in Munster now take up 4 of the top 16 spots in the country.

Based on final League position (the most reasonable guide to current standing) their rankings were as follows:

Kerry 2
Cork 12
Clare 13
Tipp 18
Limerick 29
Waterford 30

I think their description as mid-lower ranked counties is accurate. There is a huge gap between Kerry and the rest despite how you try to dress it up.

Yes but you also said hapless. That's harsh when 4 of them will operate in the top 2 divisions next year at least.

I don't find it bizarre and can fully understand why its 3rd on his list of priorities. Fitzmaurice would be far more concerned at losing a Munster than a league final. Championship is everything.

The All Ireland series is everything. The only value a Munster championship is to Kerry is in ensuring the smoothest possible route into an AI quarter final and not as a competition in it's own right. Similar with Dublin in Leinster. The national league is not a regional competition and is played among the top 8 teams in the country and so generally its is the best gauge as to a teams performance level. Why should a regional competition with a few average sides and a few minnows hold more prestige with Kerry than beating the best teams in the country.

The worse a team is the more value they put on the provincial championship.

Minor Football Championship Update 12 April Quarter Final games:

QF 1: Cork 3-21 Tipperary 1-8
QF 2: Kerry 2-16  Clare 1-6
QF 3: Limerick 1-10 Waterford 0-9

Play-off 1: Clare v Waterford, 19 April
QF 4/Play-off 2: Winner of Play-off 1 v Tipperary, 26 April

Semi-final 1:  Cork v Kerry (provisional)
Semi-Final 2: Limerick v QF4 Winner (provisional)

Since the losing semi final teams are out of the competition completely (the losing finalists play in AI quarter finals), the Cork/Kerry meeting should be a spicy affair.


EDIT 2 April 14 (EDIT 1 deleted):  The draw has decreed Cork to play Kerry and Limerick to play the winner of the Semi-final play-off between the other 3 teams. If Waterford qualify for the semi-final, then they cannot play Limerick (having already met in the Q-Final).  In that scenario, the semi-final line-up would be Cork v Waterford and Kerry v Limerick.
