Starts last week in March I think.

Exact same schedule as last year anyway, so whatever those dates were, but it should be a week or so earlier maybe this year too as we wont have a league final appearance to push it back unfortunately.

Probably no need for it to be that late. Would be much fairer to club players for it start on 1 week in March.

Yeah, it's too late starting IMO.

I know Dublin start next weekend (16th/17th) and have issued all clubs with the master fixture list already - and they allocate weekends to hurling, yet still manage to run off their fixtures.

Which of the votes went through at meeting?
I presume league structure is staying the same? (18 games would be too many IMO)
Was it voted in to link league and championship standings in future?

Is the structure the same with three divisions..... Any amalgamations heard rumours about a few different clubs.... Are Corlough gone or am I just hearing things?

If it started earlier clubs would be left for weeks without games in summer months.
The weather is awful this time of year so what's the rush.

I'm not 100% sure but I think in spite of the meetings with players and county board etc. the same structure as last year was more or less agreed.

I have Corlough are gone many times over the years but it has never come to pass so I would be surprised.

One thing I know for a fact is that Kill and Drung are training together at the moment. I don't what that means in terms of them joining up but obviously both don't have enough to even justify getting together for a training themselves which is worrying for them.

Does anyone have any idea when the ACFL Reserve Leagues are starting this year? They usually begin a week or two before the Senior Leagues but haven't heard anything yet from clubs.

There are some Reserve games this weekend from looking at the fixtures.

Think all the leagues are starting this weekend.

Don't think there is much point in predicting how the games will go as the first few will be a lottery.

Hopefully the county lads particularly the likes of Gearoid, Caomhin, Madden and Mackey can use these games to get the sharpness and confidence.

Tentative early picks for promotion and relegation below, bit like the County leagues apart from D1, I don't think the winners of the actual cup really matters..

D1 - Winner - Castlerahan
Relegation - Ballinagh & Cootehill

D2 - Promotion - Very tough - The teams with the highest quality are not typically good league teams. I will tentatively go for Shercock & Arva. With Lavey in there if they want it enough and are not building for the c'ship like other years under this mgmt. which has served them well.

Relegation - Also very tough, there are 7 or 8 teams of a very similar standard but I will go for the two promoted clubs Killinkere and Drumlane to back straight back down in a packed finish.

Division 3
Promotion - Fancy Killashandra to come comfortably top with a bunched battle for 2nd and will tentatively go for Kildallan to finally get out of the Division after a few years of near misses.

What was the story in the Ramor Gaels game yesterday?

Heard there was a mix up with the scores and the game is down as a draw but Paul Fitzpatrick from the Celt had Ramor winning by two on his scorecard.

Was there a scoreboard in operation at the game?

Think there was a similar controversy with Lacken game in the c'ship and a last minute free if I recall correctly. Same official involved also I believe..

In the 1st half,at one stage Ramor scored a point and he marked it in his notebook to the Cavan Gaels by mistake,so at half time Ramor were leading 8-6 but the referee had it as 7-7.So by the end of game Cavan Gaels scored a point and the ref then blew full time presuming it was 1-11 to 14 when in fact it was 1-12 to 13 in favour of Ramor.subsequently it was queried by ramor as well as half time and he also consulted with Paul,a neutral who informed him the correct score.Cavan Gaels officials knew the correct score,Ramor officials knew the correct score.my sources say he agreed to video(match was been recorded) been sent to CCC but essentially it all depends what he puts in his report as that's final.Also scoreboard was also out of action which added to confusion,had Ollie spotted the scoreboard after his mistake,he would've rectified it.At the end of the day it was human error and it was only the 1st game of the league but it's still a matter of principle and Ollie would get a lot of respect if he held off his report until video was viewed.On the pitch it was a full blooded game,evenly matched with top players missing on both sides.

To be honest there is no excuse in this day and age for getting the score wrong. Minimum expected is at least the score to be right . It's not difficult.

Kingscourt have been over the place in first two matches. The first game was like a championship match on the Wednesday and we got away with a one point win. Tinnely was quality as was galligan in FF for lacken.

Then at weekend we should have been beat by 20 points. The county men are wore out.

What I mean is in the first match the county men were poor for both teams. Galligan in FF was good but you could see the other men were wore out.

we should beat Monaghan now as there missing 4 of their best players.
