The league and provincial championships are a bit too similar now IMHO. The league works well but in essence it is the same competition played a couple of months apart.
Also think the 3rd, 4th and 5th teams and the top two from the other group should go into an open draw for the all Ireland championship with the 4 winners joining the provincial finalists in the quarter finals. It at least would allow a side to build if they lost their first two round robin games by tight margins and be all but out. For argument sake, Wexford lose to Dublin and Kilkenny by tight margins in their first two games they will be all but out of the championship in early June. Will they just down tools? At least if they were guaranteed a championship knockout game they could regroup and rebuild/blood a lad or two in the last two games and have a bit of momentum and easily make an A/I semi final.
Will be a structure which suits the strongest teams as less likely to be caught on the hop more than once in the year
