That’s probably the issue alright because there was no other justification for what they did. Initially they argued that the pitch couldn’t cope with 3 games on one day (eg. Minor/Ring final/Senior game), but then they went ahead and scheduled the Meagher/Rackard/Ring finals for the same day from then on
It would make a such huge difference if they did that. From the lads I know who played in those games it really was a significant incentive. Unfortunately they’re all in football dominated counties so there is little or no hope of a motion to bring it back. Would have to come from central council.
