Gaslighting? ??
Most of the information in the daily papers so I presume you're a 6 Cos resident?

Inter County players opposed to handpass restriction, kicking sidelines forward and the kick out proposals.
I suppose it's a bit much to expect the top players in a football code to be kicking the ball or to kick it forward or for 25metres ::)

Decades of throwball has them ruined

I think  May has 2 things in her favour-
The Tory rebels are mainly spineless
What will anyone else do?
The EU aren't going to tear up 17 months of negotiations and say "damn we got it wrong" so the same alternatives will face any new leader or Government
The negotiated deal
No deal
Stay in the EU.

62% of Scots voted to stay in the EU.
If they could only get 51% of them to vote for Independence......

Brits meet real world and can't handle it ::)

If you had tiers, tier 1 would get the vast majority of the coverage. Token coverage of semis and finals of tier 2 and 3.

We’d be saturated with matches and more matches of Dublin v Tyrone, Kerry v Dublin, Dublin v Mayo, Mayo v Kerry. And to be honest, even fans from those counties would get sick of the sight of it all.

The coverage argument is one I don't get at all. The Tier 1 teams already get the vast majority of the coverage. Hurling dominated the early weeks/months of the TV coverage this summer and then the Super 8 kicked in, so I would say the "Tier 2" counties got the lowest coverage ever this year. 2019 will be the same.

Coverage of the Tier 2 teams is about as low as it can go, so the introduction of an actual Tier 2 competition can't makes things worse! In fact, a new Tier 2 would give the opportunity for the next TV deal to include a minimum number of Tier 2 games that must be covered.

If the new Tier 2 is a loser's competition, it'll be a disaster again. There has to be a complete split, and the only way a Tier 2 county can get into Tier 1 is by winning Tier 2. Then it'd be worth winning, and also needs to have "All Ireland" in the title, not somebody's name.
I hear there are 2 suggestions by CCCC to Central Council -
1 - All D3 and D4 teams play in the new tier 2.
2- All D3 and D 4 team enter the Qualifiers. Those that lose in Rounds 1 and 2 go into the new competition

2 is the Tommy Murphy Cup all over again while 1 isn't much better as there's no tangible reward for winning (like a place in the main Championship or promotion to Tier 1)
As for coverage - anyone have an idea how many D3 or 4 teams were covered in say last 3 years?

Sammy Wilson on Channel 4 News looks like he’s staring down the barrel of a cannon. Talk about a rabbit caught in the headlights.
Sure who'd have thought the EU and Brits would put the interests of 499,857,000 people ahead of the 143,000 DUPUDA voters😆😅
