Today in particular with the 89 semi. Favourite game ever and probably always will be lol

Was brilliant, I got he chills down my back, even now thinking about it

There are a few seconds of the semi final from an Offaly perspective at the start of this

What is the pecking order in hurling right now?

Anthony Daly : All things being equal, I think Limerick are the best team in Ireland, even this league there was no day they didn’t make four or five changes and they were still at their ease. The pecking order for me would be Limerick, followed by Tipp, then Kilkenny, and maybe Wexford after that. The misfortune is for the likes of Clare, Galway and Waterford with new managements. I do think it’s the established teams with established managements that are best placed to deal with this lay-off.
DOC: Undoubtedly Limerick are the team to beat, you look at their form over the last couple of years – they won the All-Ireland two years ago, they won the league last year, they gave Tipperary an awful hammering in the Munster final and arguably they got hit with a couple of early blows in the semi-final, that by the time they recovered from them the fight was over. It will be a test of them to see how much they’ve learned from that, but all of the signs are that they’ve responded well and are undoubtedly the team to beat.

What have KK done in recent times to be so rated? Galway might have a new manager but the players are the same and arguably more in their prime than Kilkenny who still seem to be somewhat in transition. Definitely don't think they could be rated third in the pecking order.
I was thinking the same. Might suit Galway to be dark horses as well.

NPHET is particularly concerned about clusters of infection in health care settings, including at least nine nursing homes, eight hospitals, and two community long-stay environments.

It is also worried about the pattern and the rate of increase in daily Covid-19 admissions to intensive care units and the growing level of community transmission of the virus.

180 odd deaths in UK. 919 in Italy.

UK deaths could be scary this next time week.

*not that 180 in a day isn’t scary
the UK seems to be 2 weeks behind Italy

3rd attempt

Pressure from Salmond supporters will not be the only post-trial problem for Ms Sturgeon. Opposition parties are pushing for a full accounting of what the current first minister knew about allegations of misconduct against her predecessor and when she knew it.  The trial also raises questions for the civil service. Three male senior civil servants called as witnesses told the court that after the 2013 incident at Bute House, arrangements were changed to prevent female staff from being alone with the first minister, particularly in the evenings.  And Alex Bell, a former policy adviser to Mr Salmond, told the court that three years earlier there had been concerns then about him being alone with female colleagues.  The full political ramifications of Mr Salmond’s acquittal are likely to be delayed by the UK’s developing coronavirus crisis, however. The former first minister said he would not immediately share the information on the case because of the epidemic, telling journalists gathered at the court that it was not safe to be there and they should “go home”.  Opposition parties will also be cautious about focusing too much on the issue before coronavirus is tamed. Last week, Jackson Carlaw, leader of the Scottish Conservatives, gave Ms Sturgeon a fulsome endorsement, saying he had “every confidence in her to lead the country’s response to this crisis at this time”.  On Monday, Mr Carlaw said the “serious questions” Ms Sturgeon and the SNP faced would be deferred. “The court case may be over, but for them this is just the beginning,” he said.

Also they be afraid of a open knockout being a success

HQ will abandon the championship rather than do an open draw. They can’t be straying from their tier 2 agenda

Imagine the interest from the lesser teams thinking if the draw is kind they could have a long summer for once

HQ love money. They would never drop the championship unless it was impossible to run it.
They also love competing against soccer and rugby. 

They could always say the open draw was due to the pandemic.
 
Yes. If you had that scenario, there’d definitely be more support to scrap this tier 2 bollix.
