Such a shame about PG1. Have gone backwards at such a high speed too. Can't see them getting out of their group this year will be lucky to win a match.

The timbering you boys gave the Gorts last week is doing some job papering over those cracks bs  8)

Pg1 would be safer finishing her up for the year. Sure theyíve gone back something shocking  ::)

Lol. The fun will commence in earnest in a month. Nothing up to that point will have any relevance. PG1 in the mix along with half a dozen others, with Carragan a bit ahead of the rest...but on any given day....that's what makes current Antrim club football so interesting for a change.

Run the competitions off quickly, Senior and Underage would be my view as covid disruption is on the way, especially when the schools go back.  Why run into the same problem as last year when some underage finals were postponed and never got played.

Straight knock out we wouldn't, but we have the group stages which everyone felt was a great success last year considering the times, the only issues last year were on the likes of the dual clubs, and Rossa missed out I felt the most last year in this regards. their hurlers were feeling the strain of that in the semi final.

Can we change the format? Some people would be on complaining if we did, and some on complaining that we don't. there's pleasing no one these days

It's an eight week programme , tied into the ulster club championship starting around 15th October. Group format was great for most clubs and raised good level of income for county.

We also need to consider dual clubs as well

Lot of games to be played in a three month period if you are serious about progressing in both codes

Unfortunately we didnít have the Delta variant running riot last year.  On the current trajectory, September onwards will be a big mess of positive cases and people isolating with a lot of clubs potentially disrupted.
