County board should be ashamed of themselves. Playing junior championship double header in fintona on the training pitch on Friday night. Shows total disrespect for the teams and also fans wanting to go to the games. What is the rush when senior and intermediate not til after AI final

Funny I said the same last night, is Garvaghy pitch not available for this clash? No stand on Fintona's floodlit pitch.

County board have issued a fixtures plan for rest of the year.

9th Sept- League game
16th and 23rd Sept- Championship 1st Rnd

Week after that is QF and then SF. Then ends with league game, Championship final and then final ACL game.

Is there any confirmation of what ACL Rounds will be played what weekend? Still Rounds 8, 9 and 10 left to play.
Surely a Round could have been played this weekend? Still outside the 13 day rule. Will be 10 weeks from 1st July to 9th September, which isn't good enough in my opinion - No matter how well Tyrone are doing!

You’d be a brave man to ask Mickey Harte for county players 2 weeks before an all Ireland final to play a club league match. Agree the 10 week gap is disgraceful but at this stage there’s nothing else the county board can do.

Garvaghey pitch has been dug up to be relaid.

AFAIK it doesn't indicate what rounds when etc.

The flaw in junior is that they need all the teams currently in the playoffs out of the championship by quarter finals to make that playoff date. Drumragh will benefit from any of the top five winning the championship.

Would it not be crucial that they indicate which rounds when? It will be significant for certain clubs who are battling relegation.

Unless you just take it they will be in numerical order

This year has went from being one of the best run leagues in years to the usual mess - Obviously nobody could have predicted the county run and impact but for having, what 12 of 15 games gone. Here we are in a position where we haven't kicked a ball competitively in over 6 weeks.

November club Gaelic Football again. Absolutely brutal lads.

And as stated many times its very hard to know what the solution is. If Tyrone hadn't of got to the final this year things wouldn't have worked out too bad. However, now that they have the county boards hands are tied.

The only options are to play more games without the county players or to have some kind of summer competition (possibly on a divisional basis). But it doesn't appear that clubs will agree to either. The long break in the season is nearly worse than the late finish. There should be a two or three week break in July but other than that players and clubs need regular games.

We could take an approach similar to Monaghan. Split the 16 teams into 2 divisions of 8 (1a and 1b and same in division 2 and 3) based on prior year. Play 7 home games and 7 away games. County players available for half the games (7) and double points for these games. No play offs. Even in the current year it would mean the leagues wrapped up prior to the championship and fixtures could be released for the season well in advance. Championship would remain unchanged.
