Who is this "Aggies man with the mad plan"?

And anyway, I thought they got rid of divisional boards? Isn't that what you kept telling us?

U might c his brother later when u r down the casement social club, as far as I know he still works behind the bar!

The men that r in the positions on the county will hopefully do the right thing after consulting with all relevant and realise that maybe there doesn't need a lot of knee jerk reactions. As I said before a tweak here or there will do the same job!

Or maybe they've thought it through and are happy with the decisions their making. One mans knee jerk reaction is another's quick thinking .... all dependent on whether you agree with it of course.

Yes, because that has worked so well recently..... Yeah 7th feb might be a bit early but would be pretty sure it'll be better than what we have now.

With the league starting in Feb now will that mean everything is wrapped up earlier or will we be playing matches into October!

People seem to forget the brilliant weather we have here. There will be umpteen games not played due to pitches being in no fit shape in many cases.

Our main pitch wont be open till April at the earliest meaning all games are on the second pitch. With it being used for training as well it wont be long before its tore into rubbish.

I hope not but with our great irish weather it will be mostly likely soaking for the month of Feb

but surely the weather is as bad in the winter months when we are completing games? i suppose the difference is the pitch is getting a bit of rest after oct etc where as from feb it isn't. DR i thought your club would be one of the ones happy with the leagues starting early and more gaps between hurling and football fixtures, especially with your football looking to be on the rise, might give lads a bit more breathing space to be dual players.

In principle yes. Its the reality that a lot of clubs pitchs will struggle to make it viable that he's talking about.

yeah exactly as skull says it. A lot of clubs only have one pitch and they will take an awful battering from feb to march with poor weather and matches on them.

You will see a few games called off in this period thus starting the back log of fixtures.

Im all for it but its more down to the reality that games will get called off.

It's going to make it a ridiculously long season. Training starting straight after xmas and probably not finishing up until October.

Ridiculous. Really? Sounds a bit strong does it not?
