Couldn't do that. We'd be losing 4/5 quality players to Roscommon.

A vote in the next few week to reduce Senior championship teams to 16. This is badly needed. However the motion will not pass as the weaker senior clubs and intermediate clubs will vote against, to preserve their own status. We need max 16 senior clubs. We need the club standard to rise.

To those new to the politics of our club scene, we did have 16 teams at one stage. Of course certain teams with clout didn't like been relegated & took legal action & due to poor governance got away with it & that's why we have the mess it is now. As for change, certain clubs there that could be relegated or promoted have serious clout in the politics that is Galway football, so it won't happen until certain clubs are not in danger.

I think the championship would be more competitive if it had 16 teams. Four groups of four, top two to quarter finals, bottom two to relegation final with bottom two dropping down, with two promoted from Intermediate grade and same arrangement for Junior A, B and C.

There should also be Division 1 & 2 for senior, eight teams in each division playing 14 games, seven home and seven away with the top team winning the league. No league final it is pointless.
