There has always been huge beatings in Gaelic Games. The nature and range of score taking opportunities are the root cause of it and little or nothing will change that bar a departure of the rules to something not recognisable as Gaelic Games.
Also, little or nothing, nor an influx of money will aid the plight of low populated counties in net migration areas who have always and probably will always struggle with numbers. How do counties that have population sizes in the region of average urban towns compete. It’s just a futile argument in my view with its root cause in the area that makes the organisation so successful; the county system.
The incursion of science into Gaelic Games also was inevitable due to the levels of commitment and desire to win; an All Ireland would be biggest social honour to many counties; it has driven up preparation and skills to a new level and unfortunately there are winners and losers. The road is almost impossible for counties with little tradition of success but it’s also true the likes of Meath Cork Galway Kildare etc ought to be better.
Three solutions in my view.
Give an optionsl tear up the county system to create regional franchises.
Advocate for a sustainable retreat to a era of taking the game less seriously.
Tier the competitions to create as level as a playing field as the sport will allow.
