I would move the club final to an evening throw in on st Patricks day. Would be some atmosphere as i think more would go to it after the parade.

By the way, the intermediate and junior championships were finished by mid-May in Kerry.

A good team can be beaten once by an underdog, generally the better team wonít be so foolish the next time around, championship should be one bite at the cherry, my view of course

And because there are only 8 senior Teams in Kerry. The Intermediate Championship is like a Senior B Competition, The Junior Championship is like a Intermediate B Competition And the Novice Competition is like Junior!

How many counties are straight knock-out any more?

Not sure but you agree that giving the best teams in the counties a second chance (should they get bate in a round robin/back door/ second chance match) will only ensure that the chance of a non traditional winning club/parish wonít make or win finals..

Only a few in Ulster, none in the rest of the country.

True for club and county.

Another 2-3 weeks off the IC season would be a start. All Counties should then be able to finish out their championships by mid-September to allow the Inter-pro clubs championships to begin at the start of October.
Too short as it is. The condensed season this year was a shambles and the muck will hit the fan soon when loads of intercounty players opt off panels because of the pressure cooker championship timetable.
And how many are dropping out of club football because of the lack of football?
There were no Senior club games in Tyrone from 01st July until last week,

Tyrone played most weeks so neither had a choice. The county board did put forward a proposal last year that would lead to 6 extra starred games without county players (overall non starred games would still be worth same % of points) which would have filled up the summer schedule but it was voted down. Other than that or putting forward some form of summer competition without the county players and hoping the clubs will buy into it there isn't much they can do.

To be fair the players are probably happy with July off and if it wasn't for Tyrone reaching the final the league would be wrapped up by now with just play offs to go at most.
