One thing is for sure, the way things are going now is not satisfactory.
The crazy thing is that there aren't that many actual matches, it's the wrapping lads in cotton wool and crazy gaps between matches which is pissing everyone off. 5 week gaps and no matches in between is just nuts. the dublin hurlers got knocked out in july and there was no SHC till sept. madness.
still think there are some very simple steps to streamline the number of teams lads play on which would allow each team to have a much more satisfactory season.
