CPA Pull out of Fixtures Review Task Force
« on: November 19, 2019, 11:36:46 AM »
The Club Players Association have pulled out of the #GAA fixtures task force, citing a loss of faith with the process. Has anyone any strong opinions on this?

Want to see some details.
Are they objecting (late in the day) to the process? Or was their proposal shot down or were they simply being ignored and just included for semantics?
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

They're saying the process is based on retaining too much of the current system and isn't a blank page approach which they've always said is the only answer. So they can't agree to it.

if they aren't being listened to and only there as a token gesture then they are right to make a point and pull out.

personally i think get the club season finished off in the calendar year, have All Ireland finals on St Stephens day, great way to finish the year. you have club players who are waiting for their AI semi final, train to feb for possibly 1 game, players are as fit now as they will be in feb, they have peaked, finish the season and give non county players a chance of an off season in jan and feb.

All Ireland finals on St Stephen's day would be a total joke, and a slap in the face for families. Imagine travelling up from Kerry or Donegal the evening before ::)

The CPA will only have had lip service paid to their ideas. They're correct to withdraw.
The only option is a nationwide strike where teams across the country simply refuse to play and full fill fixtures. An entirely new approach to fixtures and scheduling of games needs to be undertaken. In Tyrone no football is played between June and the end of August. But they are now into league promotion and relegation playoffs. Before preseason starts in Jan. It's a crazy situation

They're the choices your clubs have made.

Year zero solutions almost always fail.

Clear as day that John Horan scuppered his own task force by rushing through the tier 2 championship.

Absolutely. This was inevitable. CPA wanted a blank page approach, Horan has a new championship structure set up to start next June. What other way could it have ended?

GAA have no desire to tackle club fixtures crisis especially when bring in more games like super 8's .
