Listening to all the team captains and managers over all 3 championships everyone seemed to be in agreement that the new championship format was the way to go.
The question is will Monaghan County board forgo their cash cow of the ''back door'' system where they have reaped all the gate receipts for championship matches,

serval high profile managers from outside the county have question are there too many club games in Monaghan.

would a single league finished before the champions be advantageous. would it eliminate games being conceded as we've seen in the past few years .

9 leagues games plus the guarantee of 4 group championship games and more game if you progress out of the group could be the future.

with league positions being linked to a group seeding for the championship.

if inter-county games move to the autumn in the future this could be the way to go.

It's better to have playing to training ratio. Then training endless for 1 match. They play knock-out football in Tyrone which is a bit old fashioned

I would really hope the county board keep with the new structure. The back door system was brought in when the inter county one was created. And it isn't as good as the current one. Last year, at Senior level, it took 8 games to whittle the teams from 10 to 8. And the 2 teams who were knocked out ended up being the 2 teams that got relegated.
I'm not sure if there would be room for this new structure and a double league but the new structure makes every game an event. Double league can be a bit of a drag.
If you had the single league, the team that comes bottom gets relegated. The team that loses the relegation playoff in championship also gets relegated. If it happens to be the same team,then the team that comes 2nd from bottom in league plays off against the team that was in relegation playoff.
This format would have less games but higher stakes and higher quality. The loss in gate revenue would be more than compensated by charging for streaming. There is a huge market of people either overseas, down the country or simply unable to attend who would pay €5 to watch their club.
Also there would be no more Star games.
The new format is simply better than the old one.
