First consideration is the result between them. So if we win both our games only Longford could be level with us and as we beat them, we go up. Only if results lead to us and Tipperary level will scoring difference kick in

I see Down’s motion to congress to have club games 70 minutes in duration was overwhelmingly defeated, value for money for the punters was their reason, more punishment more like!!

Think it was Castlewellan’s motion and I think we pushed it to Congress 3 years ago as well.

I’m not sure about it’s merits tbh. It would naturally place an even greater emphasis on fitness (surely we don’t want that), and would put even more pressure on throw-in times for the shorter evenings of April and September. Those are definites. In terms of potential weaknesses, it means dead rubbers and sludgings would have another 10 minutes of nonsense to play out, while I can’t help thinking more muscle injuries in the closing stages, in the early years at least ie more physio bills.

Any idea when juveniles fixtures are out? Leagues must be nearly ready to start?

Beat Leitrim on Saturday night and Derry beat Longford on Sunday Down are promoted with a game to spare.

But if Down were to lose to Louth and Derry & Longford to win their last game it would be a 3 way tie and head to head would no longer be relevant, and it would come down to score difference, is that not the case?

Experience has taught me never to be over confident when it comes to Down footballers, but they will beat this Louth team with a bit to spare. They've lost a number of players since last years shock win in Newry and they're nailed on for relegation. We owe them big time for that defeat in Newry.
This Down team have proved a lot of people wrong, myself included, they have steadily improved throughout the league and although the football isn't always pretty they are able to grind out a result.
