Why not? Your losing nothing by having it as early as possible and if nothing else, can allow fans to book holidays safe in the knowledge they wont miss a game, or club players to book weekends away or weddings knowing that they won't have league games clashing with when the county is playing

Lets the provincial councils sort out their fixtures programme for 2019 I suppose.

As usual the Connacht draw has the two predetermined ties, two from ourselves, Ros and Leitrim to meet in the other first round tie.

Sure whatís the problem. Ross will have to beat Leitrim, Mayo and Galway to win Connacht. That is as hard a draw as any team will have.

Connacht - Mayo v Galway
Munster - Cork v Kerry

With Kerry,Dublin,Mayo and Tyrone winning them IMO.

Looks like next year could be a very bad championship for Division 4 sides and provide a serious chunk of evidence for a tiered championship, given the way the draw went.

The following are the Division 4 sides first round opposition.

Antrim v Tyrone (unless Derry somehow beat Tyrone)   
Derry v Tyrone   
Leitrim v Roscommon   
Limerick v Tipperary
London v Galway   
Waterford v Clare   
Wexford v    Louth   
Wicklow v   Kildare   

4 Division 1 sides and 3 Division 2 sides and only 1 Division 3 side.
There's also Mayo v New York.
Looks like a lot of one-sided matches in the early rounds of the championship
Worth remembering that this is with some protection for Division 4 sides due to the that Kerry and Cork are going straight into the Munster semi-finals and Dublin are going straight into the Leinster quarters.

I'd say so, especially with Malachy staying on too. Haven't heard anything yet but that's my hunch. He just had his best year for a few seasons and he'd be the type to keep playing as long as he's let.

We'll swap our draw with him gladly if he wants so.

It'll be another beating from Galway for us, though hopefully not as pitiful as it was this year, and at least the journey home will be short.

Playing Sligo is like an All-Ireland final for Leitrim....lads would be coming home from America and all to try and bate us.

Straight into Connacht semi final will mean we get a good run of club football in April and maybe first week or two in May.

If I was Terry Hyland, Id be wondering is a lad like him worth the hassle in the dressing room. If the going gets tough you know he will go hiding. Example, roscommon are similar to Kildare. Leitrim are similar to Carlow. Carlow beat Kildare last year.
Its not impossible for Leitrim to get organised, motivated and be competitive with Roscommon. With a bit of luck who knows. But its only possible if you have belief and buy in from your players.

If you watched the draw you will know the only team Leitrim have beat in the connaght championship (excluding London & New York) since Mulligan joined the panel is Sligo. They have been well beaten by Roscommon in recent years. It's also a div 1/2 side against a div 4 side. It's easy for you to slag off the man, but you're not the one who has to put in all the training for what is going to be a pointless task. The Clare manager made the same point point about having to play Kerry every year.

The super 8s are a good idea, but they should be at the start of the championship, not the end, an open draw and the provincial championship structure should be scrapped at this stage. Unfortunately you have all the committee men in their provincial roles who will do everything in the power to fight this as they don't want to give up their power/positions as they believe that it worked 50/60 years ago so it should be perfectly fine today

Carlow beating Kildare is a good point and comparison. I have a lot of time for Mulligan the footballer an outstanding talent but If Carlow players had the same negative attitude like Mulligan they would have got well beaten by Kildare this summer.

On Leitrim they have appointed arguably their best manager in years who should have them organised, meanwhile its hard to know where Roscommon will be? still no manager and could end up appointing a pure dud and by the sounds of it whoever is appointed they will have a weaker hand to choose from due to lads retiring or going traveling.

I did watch and I am well aware of Leitrim and their limitations, i was born a stone throw from the county. Roscommon were in Div 3 a couple of years ago, they are not Kerry. A complacent Roscommon team almost lost to New York. A complacent Roscommon team are worth targeting by Leitrim. What is Mulligans point, he wants to draw Sligo every year as they are the only team they can beat? Whats the point in even playing the game if you think like that?
Imagine going into a dressing room full of players beaten as soon as the draw was made. At the very least he should have kept that negative opinion to himself as that negativity can infect other players.

I'll tell you what his reaction should be tough guy...

v Roscommon. That's a tough draw for us. We have to learn from the past and improve and aim to be very competitive against them and see where that brings us. First we have a league campaign and we need to try and get out of Div 4.

You clearly have no experience of a dressing room if you think talk like that has any place in it.
