Iíd say most people donít really care that the schedule has yet to be finalised. Of all the sticks we have to beat RT… with this is the smallest. Iím sure most of the matches we give a shite about watching will be televised. Will all the Ulster championship matches he available on bbc ni once again?

Some people will care when they find out their county games isn't being broadcast; not enough to actually go to the game mind but enough to complain.

I think the BBC NI TV contract runs for the same period as the other GAA TV contracts.

I wonder will any of the other TV stations manage to match TG4's revolutionary picture-in-picture for kickouts. Knowing BBC NI they would probably use it to show 2 different crowd shots at the same time.

Also I wouldn't bet against some manager giving out about the qualifiers being "disrespected" by the television companies at some stage this summer.

Jesus if thats true itís the saddest indictment of modern society yet.

People are annoyed enough to complain but not annoyed enough to do anything about it.

Sounds like the Sinn Fein approach to politics.

Oh dear.....

A real gear grinder. So that's both Sly Sports (who are dropping most of their exclusive qualifier games in pref of super 8) and RTE going gung-ho with the Super 8 games. And it's only the start of things to come !

No doubt with the subtle approval of those who matter in HQ.

I wonder how much publicity the B Championship would get if this is how provincial championships will now be treated.

Every Ulster game was shown last year. Not showing Cavan Donegal is one thing but to not televise Monaghan Tyrone is criminal, its also basically destroys BBC NIs Gaa coverage entirely 

Im sure though we'll get to see the Dubs hammer Wiclow or Offaly in some farce "match" for the greater good

Depends. If the top 2 places are known early on in both championships, which could happen then round 5 mightn't be appealing.

So we won't get to see Carlow v Louth!?

Seriously I would have expected a revision of the TV deals following the change of Championship formats.

Farr -Round 5 would be a virtual  knock out round as the 3rd team goes through.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Nah
The current hurling format is a mess thrown together to rival super 8s
