Have they considered playing a blanket defense?

Yes it is truly amazing to see Mullahoran the lowest scorers out of all 40 clubs in the league at this stage.

Mullahoran are in for a bit of transition but that is the fate for a lot of rural clubs unfortunately. They've some good people working underage and I'm sure they'll come strong again. Killeshandra have gone back a bit too. They had a nice young team a short time ago but the loss of a few players really can have a dramatic effect on a rural club. Looking at the table it does look like the makings of a good senior championship. One thing stands out though from the tables. There's only about 6 teams with serious aspirations for the senior championship. There is scope for an extra county championship like they have in Kerry. Maybe have top 6 teams in the league as stand alone for county championship and make 10 amalgamated teams from the rest to have a 16 team competition. Would benefit a lot of the more serious footballers from the weaker clubs.

Top 4 in division one also the only teams with a positive score difference.

Gaels and Kingscourt joint top on 20 points in Division 1. Killygarry (24) and Crosserlough (20) are top two in Division 2. Butlersbridge (24) top in Division 3 and 3 teams in joint second on 20 points- Kildallan, Drumgoon and Knockbride. After that I haven't a clue.

What happened in Division 3? I now see Knockbride and Butlersbridge played a final but were Drumgoon not involved in the playoffs?

I think they were yeah. Not sure what happened there, re Drumgoon
Bridge won the final well.

Though the leagues should be long over at this stage. Kingscourt waiting a long time to play league final. They offered to play it about 2 months,but Cavan Gaels refused.

Drumgoon and Kildallan were involved in the play-offs together with Knockbride, Knockbride beat both therefore Knockbride got prometed an played in the final.

Maybe league is too long. 4 Divisions of 10 might be better? Seems too drawn out with a lot of conceded games for final rounds. Bit mad expecting teams to tog out in December alright. League should be done and dusted before Championship starts and maybe scrap finals as well. If you finish 4 points ahead of the rest you're clearly league champion.

Don't think the league is that long tbh. It's the championship which is. Senior championship with back door, side door and everything else dragging it out.
Ballinagh played 7 or 8 games and weren't even in the quarter finals.
