Club Championships 2018


#1401

Fake news


#1402

Possibly. Depends how many decent teams they have underage.


#1403

Finals or just bog standard games, when did you see them. You are trying to weasel your way out here


#1404

How am I trying to weasel out of it? I’ve seen county semi finals and Connacht intermediate finals in recent years


#1405

So you are just a terrible pundit. Lucky you aren’t on betfair. Fair enough.


#1406

The facts back me up and show that the Galway intermediate championship is terrible. This year is an aberration


#1407

7 all ireland finalists in 14 years is terrible? List the counties with better ones, kk, cork… any more?


#1408

Ridiculous unfair advantage over other teams. Some years the Galway team only has to beat a Mayo team followed by an Ulster team to get to the All Ireland


#1409

Bingo.


#1410

So youve gone completely from saying its terrible, as theres no way you can make that argument, and are now talking about unfair advantages. Which galway can’t do anything about really, tried to go into leinster but wexford were too frightened.

Funny in senior, if you are to take performance on the level playing field of semis and finals, the galway senior championship has proven to be way harder to win than the munster club since 2000. Why do the ridiculously weak munster and ulster clubs get a bye straight into the semis, they dont deserve it


#1411

Still waiting for an answer here


#1412

No its still terrible. One swallow doesn’t make a summer. How is it not an unfair advantage to only have to beat two teams from non hurling counties to get to an All Ireland Final?


#1413

Flesh that out a bit there


#1414

Ouch


#1415

The galway champions have been far more successful than the munster champions on the level playing field of semis and all irelands. Thats not complicated.


#1416

Not a level playing field. The Munster team had to win their county championship and the provincial championship to get that far


#1417

Not as strong as cork and kk (and ive already proven why in kks case) but its terrible compared to what other counties exactly? Its terrible in comparison to what??


#1418

All of the other hurling counties


#1419

Terrible comprehension again by you. The munster champions, im treating them as one entity here, even though they are the pick of five hurling counties, enter the all ireland series on a level playing field, same rest time (months) same draw as the 4 Provincial winners evenly can draw each other, yet the galway champions fully out perform them.

Im not interested how they got there, irrelevant. im interested in what they do when they get there.


#1420

Oh ok so wexford, limerick, clare, offaly, dublin, waterford, all of whom have never had a finalist or winner of the intermediate championship, have better championship than galway who have a winner and six finalists. Riiiiight.
