Well spotted.

I think so. A few Connacht FBD games was settled that way back in January

A big difference in the penalty shoot-out is what happens if level after 5 penalties taken by each team.  The GAA way will be to have the same 5 penalty takers take the sudden death penalties, although they can be in a different order.

Also, only the 5 penalty takers can be on the pitch from a team - all other players (including a sub keeper), managers, maor foirne, maor uisce, physios and so on must be in their team's sideline area.  I presume linesmen will be tasked with keeping them in place.  Will be interesting if a penalty taker starts to suffer from cramp and cannot receive attention.

I predict chaos and the local radio commentaries could be eventful as well.

I think I would prefer a point shooting contest, maybe from 35-40m out.

That was the way last year but decided to switch to penalties this year.

Penalty f**king shootout? Thatís ridiculous. There will be no penalty shootouts for an AI semi or final, you can be sure of that. No, itís a replay, cha-ching!

is it goals only in the penalty shoot-out??  If its 4-4 and team 1 miss can the last guy just tap it over the bar for the win??

AI final will go to replay if level after 70 mins. AI semi finals will have extra time and if level after that its a replay.

16 teams in round 1

Leitrim
Monaghan
Down
Derry
Antrim or Tyrone
Fermanagh or Donegal
Tipperary
Waterford
Offaly
Wexford
Louth or Dublin
Longford or Kildare
Carlow or Meath
Laois v Westmeath
London
Wicklow


Looking at the overall performances of the teams from Division 3 and Division 4 this year, you'd nearly swear these teams were doing their best to strengthen the case for a 2nd tier.

Leitrim - Division 4
Monaghan - Division 1
Down - Division 3
Derry - Division 4
Antrim or Tyrone  - Division 4 or Division 1
Fermanagh or Donegal - Division 2 or Division 2
Tipperary - Division 2
Waterford  - Division 4
Offaly - Division 3
Wexford  - Division 4
Louth or Dublin - Division 3 or Division 1
Longford or Kildare - Division 3 or Division 2
Carlow or Meath - Division 3 or Division 2
Laois v Westmeath - Division 3 or Division 3
London  - Division 4
Wicklow - Division 4

At the moment 8 out of the bottom 16 in the league this year are confirmed to be in the first round of the qualifiers.

Limerick are still in the championship proper due to their win over Tipperary.
Sligo were always going to avoid the first round of the qualifiers due to the nature of the Connacht provincial draw. They will be in round 2 after a 13 point loss to Galway.
One of Laois and Westmeath will be in the first round of the qualifiers and one won't as the draw pitted them against each other.

Antrim will be in the first round of the qualifiers if they don't beat Tyrone - 1/200 to qualify for the next round
Carlow will be in the first round of the qualifiers if they don't beat Meath - 1/10 to qualify for the next round
Longford will be in the first round of the qualifiers if they don't beat Kildare - 3/10 to qualify for the next round
Louth will be in the first round of the qualifiers if they don't beat Dublin - No odds for Dublin qualifying for the next round - Dublin 1/100 to win

So most likely looking at a situation where 13 of the 16 teams from Division 3 and Division 4 will be in the first round of the qualifiers.
Of the remaining 3 teams, 2 (Sligo and one of Laois or Westmeath) were never going to be there because of the way the provincial draws went, with Limerick being the only one who avoided the first round of the qualifiers due to their performance on the pitch.

Results you mean instead of performances? as Offaly,London,Wicklow,Derry,Limerick delivered competitive performances against higher ranked sides this summer.
