@CheachtPeile - I'm curious - do Cavan people like it, or want change, or are they just split down the middle ? What happens after 4 rds - one league table, to determine conventional KO, 8 of 16 or what ?

@Whammo86 - Those 4 rds could have a lot of great Inter-Prov pairings - so it's not just all about the Ulster Champp and few games in Connacht anymore. A simple solution to a complex problem.
Top 16 of 32 straight to Rd of 16 ?

With Dubs still playing same 3 games in Lein as now, they'd only have 1 different in Rd 1.
Maybe better to have 6 rds for greater variety for all (that is, an additional 2 'All Inter-Prov' rds) ?
This will increase dead rubber risk, however - so KO field needs to be broad to counter - say KO 20.
1v16/17; 2v15/18; .....5v12;.....8v9.
High v Low winners in next KO rds.
This could be more exciting than what we will conclude about the 'Super 8' !

Yeh 6 rounds moving to a top 20.

Results carry forward.

2 further rounds moving to a top 12 knockout tournament could be interesting.

It would provide teams with a lot of games and retain the Provincial championships.
