When do you play it?
May -3rd level exams, June Leaving Cert.
No County games in April so it's Feb/March or October/ November??
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Your team Roscommon playing 3 games in 3 weeks did them no favours at all in that Connacht final and U20s aren't conditioned like seniors footballers are for that amount of games. Both AI semi finals on in different venues at the same time is a bit odd surely a double header would have made more sense?
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Perfect scenario, Tyrone beat Roscommon whilst Donegal grab a point v Dublin. In a crazy game in Omagh, Tyrone get a last min goal to take all three points and Donegal win at the Hyde. Donegal and Tyrone play out a nil nil draw in Ballybofey to send the Dubs packing.
That was never a square ball!!

Could you just imagine if Dublin somehow didn't get through to the semi finals? Bets busted all over the country.

Itís as likely as Tyrone winning the AI.

Jesus that would be a dream come true, especially the nil nil draw in a hurricane force wind and rain in Ballybofey.

Anyone else think the Super 8s should culminate with the Croke Park games instead of starting with them?
If you were any use you'd be playing.

They do for Roscommon.

I assume itís to ensure the champion v champion matches arenít dead rubbers, thereís a high likelihood that those two teams can win both their first group matches and only have positioning to play for in the final match.. Iíd agree with the GAA on playing them first TBH. Make the Croke Park matches matter.

Would the final two games in each group not have to throw in at the same time, or else the teams in the second game would have an advantage, knowing what they need to go through.

They do throw in at the same time.

There's literally no atmosphere at that game. Not having a go at the fans but it's so quiet

Home, away and neutral is the way to go for the Super 8s.
Let Dublin play their home game in Croke Park, every other game is fixed for somewhere else.
Leinster semi-finals & final plus Dublin home Super 8 game and All-Ireland semi-finals and final should be the only games played there.
If you were any use you'd be playing.
