That was the system in the Christy Ring for a few years.
One thing it does is eliminate dead rubbers.
I expect they will give the Round Robin QFs their 3rd year as planned though with some tweaks.
Unless of course this Review Committee comes up with some radical new proposal which catches everyone's imaginations...
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Itís a simple system and would solve most of the problems we've had with super 8s. For the money men-The loss of 2 games overall will be counteracted by the fact that every game has meaning and should attract bigger crowds. The Cork Roscommon and Meath Kerry games this weekend were hardly money spinners and were probably run at an overall loss especially for competing counties. Croke park should not be involved until semi stage, keep it special for full houses only, and bring the super 8 games down the country neutral venues
