That's just the way it is. Leinster and Munster has a backdoor for the first round losers. Kerry were beaten twice one year in Munster and still in the All Ireland Competition.

Derry beat us well, yet we get another chance to get to the semi. If Derry lost the quarter final they are gone.No extra chance !
How would we feel if Cavan won Ulster and were beaten in the quarter final and the team we beat went on to win the All Ireland.
Should the beaten finalists be gone. Are we taking away the shock defeat like the senior super 8 will next year ?"
When do you stop giving second chance then? Semi, final???

The super 8 is going to end up as a complete joke.
Take the four senior teams that played last week.
Monaghan and Armagh get hammered .
They would get another hammering by Dublin and Tyrone in round 2.
And really would both teams be interested in playing each other in round 3 after 2 hammering and nothing at stake?
It's a money thing and nothing else.

Will we be missing the Minors that played with their clubs on Sunday for The All Ireland Semi Final?

Should any team at any level get a second chance ?
The back door is just a money spinner for the GAA. Wheres the shock win/defeat element. Teams now get a second bite ( unless you're a provincial champion)
The super 8 will now make sure the provincial champions get a second bite but in all honesty it's a farce of a set up.
The championship should be knock out. The chance of a big upset is now gone.
Just my personal opinion.
incidentally, credit to the minors. It's great to see a semi final position. Don't think i'm knocking them.

The League should be the major competition for the All Ireland and the c/ship as it now stands should be knock-out and the second competition. lose and you're out.
The League should be re-named and played in a Champions League format with home and away games ensuring at least 6 matches for every team.

What a great achievement for John and his backroom team, they have managed this talented squad to reach the All Ireland semi-final
When the lads get rob the final they will beat Derry and we will have an all Ireland again.

Good luck to all our county men

Surely some little part of the Credit should be given to the 2 men that were there for 18 months up to the Ulster Final.

Also huge credit to the coaches & selectors of the various development squads that brought these lads through from u14 level despite the rubbish that people spouting on here. It's a coordinated effort from all groups & great to see it being effective

So now you want to give the credit to others instead of the present management I wonder why. John Brady John Young are proven trophy winners I don't know much about the others on the backroom team but I am sure young Jack has won several quality medals over the last few years and the young lads must surely have respect for those helping. No praise to anyone else except of course the players who are a great bunch of lads and have shut most of the bedgrudgers up and long may it continue. Jesus if they win Sunday and I have no reason to think they cannot who will people dig up to start giving credit too. John Brady and John Young have been a long time around and have I would say nearly seen every potential minor for the last five years if not more. I saw them both for years watching matches so they did their background for sure. The Brady family have some history behind them and it shows.

I hope you don't think they are not
. Management show them nothing but respect. They make changes and people knock them who should know better than the management who are up for it or not. I have been around a long time and seen the good and bad side of it and for me the current management are doing a great job and not taking credit for something they had nothing to do with like others.

It will be great coming home Sunday evening with another win all going well and there is no reason why one should think otherwise. Galway Cork Dublin Kerry, Cavan are capable of beating them on the day. This is the glory of Minor football and Hurling hot today cold tomorrow so be positive let's hope people stop the negative crap it's fecking sole destroying.

Actually if you got down of your high horse for a minute you might realise I was also praising John Brady because he was manager of the county u16 development squad for 2 years when this current team were at that group.... maybe you should think before you jump to defend.....
