The view I referred to is the structure that has operated in Dublin, under GAA rules, since the year 2000 or 2001. It came in because of the introduction of the calendar year inter county games programme which makes it impossible for inter county players to be available for the majority of club league fixtures. Therefore club championships are the principal club competitions and, whether we like it or not and most of us don't, leagues have been reduced to secondary competitions to be played, for the most part, without the best players being available to their clubs.
As for saying that I have an outdated view I think yours is 16 or 17 years behind the times!!
