Is there a link to the details of the proposals anywhere?

Derry Optimist:
If one is to go by the latest emotional and negative opinions uttered by Brian McAvoy Secretary of the Ulster Council and to a lesser extent by Donegal Chairman Mick McGrath re the new Championship proposals it would appear that   both proposals are already consigned to the dustbin.

If that happens we will have at best a sanitised version of the Super eights which effectively only cater for the needs of a quarter of our 32 counties. Incredibly some of the views expressed by the naysayers are really DUP speak at its most negative.If the Provincial Councils really had the players views at heart they would listen to what the players are saying. Quite emphatically they are articulating the opinions of the vast majority of the silent majority of supporters and  most importantly their own members, not the archaic views of some Provincial Council officials and County Board officials.Every player in every County squad  should immediately let their own County Board know that they will not be treated as second class players any longer for that is what will happen if Proposal B  is rejected and the old 2019 system reinstalled. A proper GAA Championship should not be an annual competition just for the top teams but rather a meaningful structure which will give every player  a fair opportunity to win some silverware at their own level

The super 8ís need to go. Championship football is at itís best when it is knockout, anyone who has ever played will tell you that. All this league shite doesnt compare to it and there is always a chance of catching a big team cold when itís all about on the day. Look at Cavan, Tipp, Cork etc last year.

Yeh I totally agree. But  I just canít see them approving a knockout championship. Not when thereís a shit load of money to be made from continuous matches between the top 6 or 7 teams (the other 24/25 teams donít matter).

 No point Dublin/Kerry going home after 1 match knock out championship, when thereís   The potential to make millions  from a repetitive deja vu league format. Yup, a Ďmilk that tit dryí  championship format will be the way itíll be.

Are the majority of players and fans in Ulster in favour of the elimination or downgrading of the Ulster championship? I would need to see the data on that.
