One team it won’t help is mayo IMO.
They operate off limited pool of 20 players and tend to do just enough to win while running risk of defeat against weaker teams.
They don’t have facility to rest many key and still win.
They won’t be helped by the attritional nature of super eights as they’ll pick up injuries and don’t have players to back fill.
Super eights will help dublin with bigger pool of talent on panel and also help those counties looking to break into top 3 but without expectations (yet) of winning. Galway etc.
Just makes 4 in row more likely and 5.

I think they have demonstrated they improve over a run of games. Granted a few injuries to key people is a risk, we susceptible to that too though.

It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out.

How many of their champo games did they win in 70mins. If they make it into super 8s they will be found out. They will have it in the s&c but will be let down by their footballing. After Dubs there’s no other team you could back.

One injury to Andy Moran & they are fcuked. Look at how many players we have been able to absorb the loss of & we keep on truckin’

Then there are all the games they needed extra time or replays to win. They’ve been playing with fire these past 2 summers & sooner or later, they are gonna get burned. My money is on sooner.
