Absolutely ridiculous. Club players are sold out even more with extra county games to be played. Money is all the Gaa are thinking about. Craziest thing I've ever heard.

How does this proposal impact club players from the current situation? There will be no county players available from the teams at the latter stages as is currently the case. By tightening the calendar many counties will be finished earlier so will release club players. It always feels that GAA people want everything to change and nothing to change at the same time...the proposals don't fix everything but they feel like a sensible step to a wider reform of the structures

My understanding of it is that instead of quater finals there are 2 groups of 4 , 3 games in each group with top 2 from each going to semi s . That's two extra games for each of the 8 counties. That does impact on club players. The championship will get held up in those 8 counties for 2 extra weekends. There is a clear lack of understanding at croke park level as to the suffering at club level.
