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.

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.


None of the 8 teams that you mention would find themselves in Round 1 of the qualifiers had they been lucky enough to get a bye to Provincial Semi-Final as Sligo did this year and Roscommon last year. Also, because of the Provincial imbalance you will always have more Leinster and Ulster counties in Round 1.

Kerry and Cork enter the Munster Championship at semi-final stage this year so could never enter Round 1 Qualifiers.
Using the makeup of Round 1 Qualifiers is very shaky ground as an arguement for a 2nd tier.

So Sligo who haven't won a match are in Round 2 of the qualifiers. Whereas Kildare, Meath, Louth who have all won a match could lose on Sunday and find themselves in Round 1 of the qualifiers. How can people defend the AI structures?

And we've a 5 week wait so it'll mean we've had one game in 13 weeks facing a team that has had at least 2 and possibly 3 in the previous 7 weeks.

Don't worry lads the GAA will fix it that Mayo makes the Super Duper 8's this year. Jez, the lads in Headquarters nearly had a heart-attack when Kildare knocked us out last year. The Super Duper 8's were put in place to squeeze the last drop out of the Mayo supporter.

Ye play one championship game away from home in the guts of 15 years. And ye think we should all say how great ye are that ye did that!

I think you know the point I was making. You were awfully vocal about how it wouldn't be allowed happen until it happened of course. Now it's going to be fixed that Mayo enter the last eight.  ;D

Lol. Croke Park might want Mayo in super8s but you can be sure Mayo will do their best not to get there!
