get rid of mckenna cup o byne cup etc and just have a three week period where you can arrange challenge matches

Is there much difference in pre season tournaments and challenge games ?

Don't know about other pre season competitions but there have been done great battles in the McKenna Cup in the past few years and it has been a good testing ground for the mettle of new players.

Not really but challenge games gives you chance to play on your own times agreed between the teams and you can play teams from other provinces although you wouldnt want to be travelling far this time year.

Would the challenge matches be closed to spectators, pay at the gate-first come first served or all ticket?

you don't get to charge a tenner into challenge games. This is the problem, Ulster council don't want to give up the cash they squeeze out of this Mickey mouse 'competition.'

Bonner must have really got inside Tyrone heads, Ronan McNamee has now made a statement as well as Harte. What's going on? Do Tyrone think this has devalued their treasured McKenna Cup titles?

Bonner embarrassed himself and his county. He has made himself look like a big baby.

I like the McKenna Cup as it let's young fellas get a run out - Turbitt for Armagh had a great couple of matches. I am disappointed Donegal didn't field. I seem to remember Armagh playing a McKenna Cup final a week before a national league final or semi final. They gave a few club players a run out and they acquitted themselves well. Think it was the time beefer and McCorry were managers.
On saying that the recent Armagh v Tyrone game - although described as a thriller in reports - wasnt played with much intensity.  As usual Tyrone were fit, sharp and focussed.  Armagh  seemed to start as if it was a challenge match and only started competing when it looked as if Tyrone would run away with it.

Is Jamie Clarke playing with Armagh this year? He's based in London, so will he fly over and back?
