Trileac will you stop putting words in my mouth.
Go do your rant on its own merits.

So Roscommon basically need to focus on the Connacht championship and beating their neighbours from now on.

Would playing the game in e.g. Tullamore have made a difference?
Not to the outcome but at least there would gave been a fairly full stadium and some atmosphere and sense of occasion.

I know.
But I also know  that we will only ever win Connachts, Div 2s and in the future Intermediate All Irelands.
There will be no more 1943s or 44s.
Nor Cavan nor Offaly winning Sam again.
Sorry for Monaghan, Sligo, Westmeath, Laois etc who didn't win one back in the days of true amateurism.
We haven't even got dreams any more and when that happens it's not a good place to be.

Just home from this away game.
Weary, depressed, disappointed for the lads but it was amateur boys against professional men.
Hard to know where we go from here, how many lads will have the appetite to slog it out over the winter again.
Some one said we've put a 2 tier Championship to bed.
We've probably made the case for a 3 or 4 tier championship when you think we're better than 24vir 25 if the teams out there.

I hope that the Roscommon team are more focused on the actual game than their supporters seem to be. I’d venture to say that the team aren’t wallowing in self-pity at the unfairness of the world.

The sense of entitlement is dripping from this one.
Absolutely Dinny.

Oliver any info on how our delegates voted on the Donegal motion at Congress?

I honestly dont know for sure but at the time i heard we were "advised" vote against it.
Enough said.
I do believe Horan helped us get the CF in the Hyde last year and no doubt we'll want a biteen of a grant for the works on the Hyde.
We'll hardly swing €30m like Frank Murphy  ::)

Are you mixing up John Horan in a  figure head role with  Páraic Duffy who was GAA chief this time last year?
Hadn't Duffy gone 3 or 4 months earlier and been replaced by Tom Ryan?
As I heard it Horan helped  convince JP to let us have the 2018 Final.
JP gave in  provided Ros CB stated  that they accepted it was the CC's right to decide the venue for the CF and that no more Finals till the up gradecwirks were done.

Exactly J70.
A mini league system should treat all teams the same.
I suppose we'll be doing very well to get out with a 1-24 to 0-12 here.

Last years figure for the 12 games was 218,134
2017 for the old fashioned knock out Qtr Finals 5 games as we had a replay with Mayowestros) 186,900.

, I think the Super 8's should have fixed this flaw after last year. It's not about being fair, it's about being fair and being perceived to be fair. I think it would make no difference whatsoever to Dublin's performances and the eventual result, but as a format it is terribly flawed - for everybody.
Exactly.
Bottom line is Ros are playing Dublin in Dublin and Cork in Cork = 2 away games.
Dublin played Cork in Dublin and are playing Ros in Dublin =2 home games.
I wonder how our delegates voted in Congress knowing if we won Connacht we'd be in Dublin's group.
