Lar the Tommy Murphy was a TOURNAMENT for teams from lower League divisions who had already been knocked out of Provincial and All Ireland Championships.
That 1984 thingy was  TOURNAMENT too.

Esmarelda the CPA asked last year's Congress to hold off the so called Super 8 so they obviously were in existence before the decision was made.
One only County Championship in Roscommon would fail small thinly populated clubs like St Ronans.
That's why we have 3 different graded Championships like most Counties  ( Cork's and Kerry have more I believe).

We'll all be rooned says Seafóid before the plan is out.
A first step would be to move Dáil,  Government, Top Civil Service, President etc to a new Capital in or around Athlone.
A new 10% Corporate tax rate for designated underdeveloped areas.

I said keep the Provincials by the way.
Same logic as doesn't have St Ronans in the same Championship as St Brigids in Roscommon  and similar in 31 other Counties.
By the way who did the GAA head bucks consult before putting the Super 8 before Congress?
Both player bodies were opposed.

Can you imagine the laughter if someone put a motion to the Roscommon County Convention to
1 Abolish the Junior and Intermediate grades and have one County Championship.
2 Start up Regional Championships with 5, 6, 7 and 10 teams where the winners of each would go straight to Qtr Finals.

Logic says 3 All Ireland Championships ( keep Provincials as stand alones with all grades entering like in Kerry) with promotion and relegation.
Have a League of some sort as a pre season competition.
Designate certain weekends of the 27 between 1st weekend April to 1st weekend in October as club only (say 11) and others as County only (11) with the other (5) flexible.
All All Ireland Finals same weekend U17, U20,  Senior, Inter, Junior.

To those who say players from weak Counties are opposed -when did players ever get to say or decide what type or format of competitions?
Even the GPA despite becoming insiders had their proposals barred from even getting to Congress 2 years ago.

No matter how bad Wicklow or Carlow were previously Meath and Offaly were winning or had a realistic  hope of winning Leinster.
Problem is now as said above teams are only playing for a place ir Round 4 of the Qualifiers.

Thanks Orchard and Seànie.
I have that angry aggressive abusive poster  blocked. I'm surprised he's still allowed to post here with all the abuse and vitriol he excreted against other posters.

We hear very little about the bus these days.

Going strong as always.  Hope she doesn't meet all the Rhubarbs in their Hyundais on any narrow road.
