No, I think we should retain the provincials with the winners advancing to AI Semi-Finals as of old.
The provincials and Sam Maguire Cup would be a straight knockout competition and secondary to an amalgamated NFL & Super 8s.

So despite complaining about Provincial inequalities you want them retained and strengthened by reverting to the old 1887 to 2000 system?
Isn't Div 1 the NFL "super 8"?
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

I'd keep the provincials too but have them as a stand alone competition. Do away with all the preseason stuff and have the league, the provincials and the all Ireland running one after the other.

Big win for Monahan today similar to mayo against limericks lots of goals,does nothing for the losers.
Roll on round three where meaningful matches should arise, still could be surprises today.
Longford,tipp, Sligo.???

From following the updates it seems that Monaghan got a run on them early and when that happens it can get messy. It can be a tough place to go if they keep in touch.

Didn't Mayo score a load of late goals to make it look better than it was? Monaghan and Galway had Sligo and Waterford beaten by half time. Longford like the qualifiers the most likely team to cause a surprise today i'd reckon.

Not really a surprise if all the pundits are predicting a Longford win.

Cavan beat Down by 2.
Sounds like there were 'unsavoury' scenes at the final whistle.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Monaghan, Cavan, Tyrone and Mayo through. Sligo drawing with Armagh at half time.

Nope.
On the radio they reckoned McGleenan was up-ended by someone in the middle of it.
