Football midweek 23rd/24th
Hurling following weekend and so on .
What a crazy situation for club players and especially dual players. Is it time for clubs to pull their players away from the county panels. The club player is getting no respect what so ever

By a huge margin the Club's voted for this Championship rather than start in April so maybe the club's should consider a change to the format. I am afraid that the county player would leave the club rather than the county such are the perks for today's players.I agree with you its lunacy but nobody is going to listen in the GAA as we are getting closer to the rugby motto of elitism.

There's fewer and fewer dual players so it's mot a significant issue. Anyway playing matches at the height of summer is what it's all about, if lads hadn't matches then managers would be playing challenges or running lengthy training sessions. Not an issue.

There's not many dual players? Maybe not on the Athlone side of the county but on the mullingar side I'd say the majority of rural club hurlers represent a football club as well

The vast majority of the Westmeath senior hurling panel play football. Loads of duel players.

I was agreeing with you. And it's not a mentality, I merely stated fact.

I know you were agreeing with me, I was agreeing with you to and my point was aimed at one of the previous posters

Who actually decides the fixtures. Whom ever it is needs to be sacked. Pitch selection and timing is a joke.
