Seems like the powers that be bottled it in terms of punishing counties who went on training camps.

What sanctions were supposedly in place?

Counties were supposed to lose home advantage for the first game of the league - first league game was supposed to be played at a neutral venue.

Mixed set of fixtures for Armagh. Should win all 4 home games but could lose all 3 away games.

Its going to be a very tough division this year, I'd fancy ourselves to beat Meath, fermanagh, Armagh, cork, Clare...I know we won't win all these and conceivably we could lose them all. I'm sure all these counties will all feel they will beat each other. I still think Donegal are ahead of everyone and kildare just behind them.

Donegal yes because they are a Division 1 team stuck in Division Two for one year. Kildare i'm not convinced about lost all Division one and super 8 games this year and they should not be hyped into something there are not.

Only provisional fixtures yet and if those sanctions were voted in at congress they have to carry through with them.

they did but you look that their results throughout and they were competitive throughout and lost narrowly in alot of games. i do rate them and think playing top level teams last year will really stand to them. im not saying its a foregone conclusion they'll go up but based on everyone else in division 2 they certainly have the best performances and form coming in
