I guess it depends on the teams. We are Div. 2 now, supposedly just beyond the the Super Select, and if we do win three in a row (enormous IF), itíll tell us where we stand.  Maybe we could avoid THREE hammerings, but a long way before that hypothesis is tested. Sligo first.

Thanks, Dec. armaghniac, why do you think that making it to the Super 8 would not be entirely good?

Three hammerings in a row?
Not necessarily. There aren't 8 super teams in the competition. At least 4 of the teams left in the Super 8 will be nothing special and therefore beatable

How many matches would Armagh need to win to get to the Super 8? Would that be three since the provincial finalist losers need to be added to the mix?

3 more

While this possible, you could beat Sligo, Louth and Lapis say, I'm not sure it would be entirely a good thing. Although you'd have one big game in Armagh.
Armagh never beat Laois 😎

Tipp at home won't be easy,they were rightly pissed off for having to face cork a week after their beating of Waterford.
They will be well up for this game,Mayos bit of class should see them through but it will be a lot closer than the odds in bookies would suggest.i think longford could surprise kildare especially being at home.tyrone,Monahan certaintys it all makes the rd 3 draw very exciting with all the  top teams having to play each other.

The football championship really only starts with Round 3.

Meanwhile Cavan v Down  fixed for Brewster Pk at 5pm on 23rd.

How come? Brewster is not in Cavan or anywhere near Down.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

One of the stewards told us in the cavan tipp league game that that was the last game that was going to be played there before work was to be done....someone from cavan can fill us in I think it was work being done to the place or maybe the pitch?

Pitch is being re-laid. Its been a major issue for a couple of seasons now, playing too slow. Pretty sure it was one of the 1st prunty pitches in Ulster but it must be there since the mid 90's. Anyway, due back in October they say.

Could it not have been in Clones or would they not chance the pitch with the final the next day?? Clones would have been handier all round.
