Tiered champ?

Jaysus lads we had this already or a variation on it with the Tommy Murphy cup. Lasted 4 years and the interest in it was non existent at the end of its 4 years. It was so poor as a 2nd tier comp that it was often referred to as the Tommy Cooper Cup.

Any dressing up for 2nd tier comp in football is a waste of time in my opinion.


The tommy Murphy was a joke because of how it was designed. It was a losers competition. Need to flip that on it’s head so if you win the lower tier you get a shot at the top teams.
