I’d argue all day that a hefty percentage of  clubs have little interest in tackling the fixture crisis either, as they’ll do anything not to play without their county players.

Has every county got minor competitions for clubs without county players? What about starred league games? I know it makes a difference when a club has a few county men, but it does give 'ordinary club players' the chance to play games.

That's what happens in Mayo. And if we get knocked out early, all are allowed play.

GAA have no desire to tackle club fixtures crisis especially when bring in more games like super 8's .
The previous administration, despite the criticism they got, compressed the season while still introducing the Super 8s meaning that club championships were able to begin earlier as counties exited the All Ireland series earlier.

I’m not sure but I think Horan has managed to reverse these changes with his Tier 2 championship.

Who is the CPA?
Who do they represent?
What mandate do they have?

That hasn't happened though. Almost all counties schedule their county finals for 2-3 weeks ahead of the winner's first game in the provincial club championships. If they schedule them earlier they'll be accused of scuppering their chances of doing well in the provincials. Tail wagging dog in usual GAA fashion.

Who is the CPA?
A tiny group of pundits and malcontents.
Quote
Who do they represent?
Nobody. They have no members. They asked people to register on their website and counted them all as members without making any attempt to verify their identity or playing status.

What mandate do they have?
None.

Perhaps, but time was created for the county boards to use as they saw fit.

Why did the GAA give them a seat at the table so? Seems strange if they had no mandate........

Full CPA statement here

https://gaaclubplayers.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/CPA-Statement_Nov-19.pdf

" We strongly pushed for an independent chairman that was ‘of the GAA’ but ‘not from the GAA’. "

What's that supposed to mean?

Someone who is well respected but who had no prior experience of fixture making?  Which would beg the question of what on earth they would be doing chairing such a committee in the first place.

The language of "factions" and "insiders" is a bit odd too.

Seems like the CPA's being more confrontational than they need to be. It needs to be a collective decision, and they're throwing the rattle out of the pram because they're not getting their own way exclusively. Seems like the GAA management has gone out of its way to include as many stakeholders as possible, the CPA included. Hardly the actions of dictators.
