The Championship is going to be farcical this year in any case.

I'd be very surprised if Tyrone beat Donegal and I'd say there is a fair chance it might not go ahead at all. Makes more sense to play off the remaining two rounds of the league and start afresh around March straight into League action.

But what about the coin?

Thats all the top brass are really interested in

But we're still at a point where only 200/400 people can attend club games. Is it really going to improve much before the end of the year?

It's going to be a farce of a championship this year, whoever wins it will have a big asterisk landed beside their name.

Imagine an All Ireland final played in December where attendance is limited to 10k or something like that? There's no real point.

Living in a covid /pandemic era might be a situation that needs to be managed for the next 10 years. Nobody yet knows. We have to get on with things as best we can.
There were all Irelandís won in difficult eras before now. Wars/ the troubles etc Not one asterisk against any of those wins.

The TV money.

It doesnt matter how many are at the games - if they are ran off then the money comes in

The TV money is small in comparison to the gate receipts. If the county season comes back there will be tv money but there will also be a lot of costs associated with running county teams. The season certainly wouldn't generate any fortune without any crowds.

And this business of the gaa only wanting the money is a load of nonsense. If that's all they were interested in (and the tv was going to generate so much money) then they'd be playing the county season right now instead of club football and not waiting to later in the year when there is a far greater risk of things being cancelled.

I'm with rrhf on this one. If it's possible under the current guidelines play away at the county season. Give everyone some sort of an interest during autumn/winter other than premier league soccer. You here people say scrap it to March etc when it is highly likely things then won't be any different to now. You'd think from some people's comments that come 31/12/2020 covid is going to end and everything will just go back to normal. It's something we're going to have to get used to for a while and adopt round it and get on with things as best we can without taking huge risks at times when there is large outbreaks.

The county board needs to raise as much money through these tv receipts as possible. Letís not be miserable, and subscribe. We need to help as much as we can here. I would have liked to seen teamtalkmag get a greater influence as they got the ball rolling years ago but the reality is is that anything generated helps us all here and stops the county falling further into debt. Support it if we can.

Can't imagine too many counties landing to training with no changing room or gyms open prior. It's all been a trial for the county and to buy as much time as possible.

County teams cost big money to run, if gate receipts are rattled, how will county boards fund them?

The crowds that HQ were hoping for are no longer.Be unlikely County action will go ahead.

Darren McCurry hoping the inter-county season doesn't go ahead??? Surely this isn't a good mindset for us?

It'll be a short enough inter county season, Donegal will win if it's not moved anyway.

The lad has probably just answered honestly, not major news. I would imagine 99% of players probably thinking the same.

Can't really see much wrong with what he said. I personally would be in favour of just finishing the two league games out and provisionally plan for returning intercounty in Jan/Feb if things have improved.

Surely the wet ground shouldn't have that much of an impact? Can't be that bad that you don't want to play?
Most inter-country grounds would have great surfaces anyway
