The Tommy Murphy cup wasn't exactly a resounding success either and you would expect that is what a third tier would look like.

Trial an open draw for 3 years.

What will bring on interest and participation in county teams is a good run for the underdog. Thatíll do more for football in a county than funding or coaching. Whatís the point for lower counties knowing the big guns are always in the way?

Players won't even want to play in it let alone people go to watch it, that is the problem with tiering. Joe Brolly wittering on about 3 tiers, I don't imagine that for 1 second Joe is contemplating Derry being in that 3rd tier which is where they would be if it was already introduced.

Why do players in club teams have 3 championships - senior, intermediate and junior?

Senior inter-county football should be the same - like the tiered hurling.  Everybody at their own level but can progress if successful.

This sense of entitlement at county teams is a joke - the smaller counties waiting for 1 time to get a good result against the big guns.  Look at Antrim for example, an Ulster Final under Bradley then the drop back. No progression there.

Tier the inter-county teams after a period of 2 years in league.  Then they know where they stand. 

Either that or combine the league into the championship.

Gaa sports are the wrong way around in comparsion to other sports - the 'cup' competition is the most important while the league is the 2nd most important.   Strange!
