Just looking at the teams in it we havenít a whole lot to be afraid of. Most of them teams would be of a similar standard to ourselves and we have beaten most of them in different competitions over the past 3or 4 years. Canít see us being relegated anyway

I dunno. I think what might have been the more "winnable" games are away. Can't see us getting anything in The Hyde so a home win v Armagh will be vital.

I think  based on the new rule changes, I am right in saying that we need to find a big target man.

a simply disastrous set of fixtures, cannot see a home win coming....and if we end up bottom two, does this drop us to tier 2 of the championship?

Yes it will drop us to tier 2 , unless we get to a Leinster final which would allow us to compete in tier 1

Hardly a disastrous set of fixtures, all the teams are of a similar standard imo. Surely if we are good enough we could beat the likes of Westmeath, Fermanagh or Cavan.

Im no fan of the tier 2 stuff but if Laois cannot stay in that division or get to a Leinster final then they do not deserve to compete at that level.

The new ruling will mean this will be the most competitive league season of all time.

Not an easy set of fixtures at the same time . Cavan just down from division 1 and last time we played Fermanagh up there 3 years ago we were beaten by 10 or 12 points I think . Westmeath and ourselves are up from division 3 this year and Iíd say would be a similar level to ourselves judging by previous results and what Iíve seen of them . Really looking foward to it all kicking off .

- Any team could beat another but it will be ferocious. It will be ultra competitive, maybe more important than the championship. It forces players to have to train at full tilt in the miseries of an Irish winter and play well in February-April. Shows how broken it is. The sooner we have one 4-5 month inter-county season that runs through the summer months the better. Some dose to be facing a winter in the muck-and-shite and maybe getting relegated to division 3 all the same.
