Replying To Bon: "Or they could put the Christy Ring/Nicky Rackard finals on before the semi finals as was the original plan many moons back ."
Yes and show equal appreciation of the secondary competitions and not just lip services. Saying making a semi final in the premier competition is typical of the selfishness we know exists. Obvious if that is what someone thinks they believe a semi final or final in these competitions is not worthy of being played in Croke Park. Make the road to the top more difficult and help the process of getting you whipped if you do.
