Games can be starred if they are within 6 days of a qualifier match. Obv teams have objected to this weeks matches but should be no issues for next week.

There is a county bye law which states that the county board are only allowed to star so many games in the season

What's the craic with Diarmuid O'Sullivan along the line with the hurlers?  Is he part of the management team or just drafted in for important games?!

He's been up a few times for training sessions and the like on an Ad-hoc basis from what I can make out.

They've done well to date, but Meath are a step up and are rightly favourites.

No size but plenty of speed in the Down hurlers, especially in the forwards. Will be interesting to see how they get on in Croke Park.

On starred fixtures, as there is an odd number of teams in the divisions, does a team that has a bye on a starred round not get an unfair advantage?

An omelette needs a few broken eggs. 10 team top flights next year will free up weekends and make less need for starred games.

I’d guess CCC knew in advance they’d have to pull this week’s fixtures, and trying to star them was a hopeful punt. But as far as I know there’s no limit to the games that can be starred, as long as the championship match is within a week of a league round.

With 11 team leagues 1 team had a bye and it would have been unfair to star games.

This used to be the case but somewhere along the way the county board somehow did away with this rule. It used to be a maximum of 5 starred games. In 2017 there were 8 games starred which obviously didn’t go down well with some clubs. I think since then they have stuck to Croke Park guidelines of games can only be starred if they are within 6 days of a qualifier.

Rumours about that Caolan Mooney and Connaire Harrison are going to be playing club football in London very soon, and through in Jamie Clarke all for the same team!!

Fancy Mayo by 5:6 points at least but who knows. If you had of asked me after the Louth match it would have been 20 points but big improvements made. Gives a good day so I would expect 10000 at the match?
Kilcoo fairly stuttering this year what’s going on? Nobody is setting the world alight in division 1 but that result gives Downpatrick a chance at avoiding automatic relegation

The silence before the Mayo game is nearly as bad as the silence afterwards. Our 'big' players really let us down today. Mc Kernan is well and truly finished costing us dearly both at the back and going forward, Harrison was well held, O'Hare was anonymous like he has been all Summer, Darren gave us so much as always but was rash and got a stupid black. Mooney kept us in the show and was the only man going direct. Our keeper is still a disaster, costing us scores again today and I wonder does the manager ever get anyone to practice frees. The huge investment, financially, in Tally has shown a limited improvement this year but he has blooded a number of new players who will benefit from their experience and I still need to be convinced that this way of playing football is best for us and suits the players we have available to play it. In must say that I have never seen a Down team yap as much at referees, umpires and linesmen in my life.  I mean, it's a mans game, get on with it you were doing the same to Mayo and they never questioned anything. Mayo gave us a lesson in this respect and our players have alot to learn with Tally's Tyrone tactics certainly not working today.

4/10 for the year and I can't see us getting out of Division 3, if the changes then go through for the championship by my reckoning we will in a 'B' championship next year.
