Hurling format looks terrible should have took top 16 teams in the country and and had a knockout

whats the reason of playing connaught championship games in croke park
It's  CONNACHT.
If only single seats* are being used and subject to social distancing you're talking about very small capacities
Sligo and Leitrim about 400 each
Hyde 1200
Pearse 2200
McHale might get to 4,000.

* as opposed to concrete benches.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Maybe to inject money into the economy, and fill the hotels and bars in Ńtha Cliath.

I have to agree with Pateen for once....
Once it was decided to go knock out they should have gone with a 32 County draw.
Would have brought a but if fairness to it.
Anyway the die is cast so it's all up to the Covid now.

Yes I agree. Spillane said similar last night. Although I doubt he ever called for an open draw when he was winning handy AIs as a player. He didnít give a shit about Down or Armagh having to win 4 tough games to win Ulster back then.

You'll notice Spillane waited until AFTER the announcement to say anything about it, he wasn't foolish enough to come out beforehand

If connacht and munster had round robin with top 2 going into a final or 2 and 3 playing a semi final before meeting top team in a final it would balance it better but their is no time to do that well at least the gaa see it that way.

They could have done a 5 team round robin in both have the two bottom teams in each province according to league positions play a qualifier
