Main issues for me here:
1) We're now taking it that Club Championship cant really happen within two weeks of any of the following teams playing in competitive action (Under 21 footballers, hurlers, Senior footballers, Senior hurlers). That realistically means if we get to finals which we are doing more so then not we cant play Championship in the first six months of the year because of the Under 21s, cant play it in the summer months because of the seniors. Therefore the majority of games need to be played in October (which people always give out about)
2) Why cant they play this week? They're not professional - rugby players play for Leinster the week before they play for Ireland, soccer players play for their club five days before their country. Ideally all senior games could have been run off on Thursday / Friday - Dessie can have his boys back on Saturday with a week to prepare for the game. How important is under-21 anyway?
3) 21s Championship is too long - they train from November, are unavailable to play or train with their club until May - that's half the season and not on. Championship should be run off over a short period of time, finished by early April at the latest.
