Replying To Anlubuchaill:  "Can't see that happening no point starting league games and then over half of the games been called off & squeezed in midweek,not really fair on clubs been punished for having county players."
I don't think it would be a case of teams being pushed. Just a case of getting games going especially 3B which will have more rounds. You're probably right but if I had the choice and we were able to go sunday if there was no county involved. It's a long year with plenty more bad weather and reasons for postponement. Even if only two games from round 1 get played get it going and dont sit waiting.

It's great to Louth doing well and if the league games have to be postponed so what.

There is sure to be some games that have no county players can go ahead

The westerns have been the early pace setters with 3 wins from 3. Been a few shocks already with the Nicks starting strong and the Mitchell's starting very slow, considering they have been topped for promotion. Tonight's games could really mix things up.

Mitchell's V Dhill
A Rovers v Nicks
Westerns V Cuch Gaels
Tones V McDermotts

That's it. It has been a decent start to the league every team is competitive. The gaels could be 3 for 3 only for not being able to see out games. Nicks starting strong the tones rebounding now like mitchels it does seem to be atleast a competitive league and it's good to see

Asked this before but can anyone clarify how 3B will work in terms of promotion i.e is there a playoff or is it one up one down. Thanks in advance

Led to believe 1st place go straight up and 6th in 3A come down, then 2nd place go straight into play off final vs 5th in 3A

Revenge for Reaghstown I'd imagine! Should be a fairly tight game.

I know I asked a similar question on another thread but is there an unlimited amount of "Star" games in Div 3b?

Wasn't supposed to be, 2 star games was what was approved at the start of the year in each grade, don't understand what the rush is to play every game , this will be round 10 in less that 8 weeks and 4 games as star games, bit squeezed

I doubt this game will go ahead the westies were pretty adamant last week when we played them that they would be taking part in no more star games and I can understand why in fairness.Why should they be bullied into this decision that was only made now,it really does seem there is a vendetta against them from the county board.Plenty of time to play the rest of these games when Louth are out of the championship which will be soon enough in fairness

I agree 100% Tonesboy

Have they played 3 star games already? I thought it was only 2 they have played - aluminium rovers and john mitchels?

Well I don't know how star games there was meant to be but at the start of the year clubs were told there would be 2 star games.But Tommy didn't play against us either so that would make it 3 already so surely they don't have to play 4 that seems a bit suspect to be honest.

Thanks Junior14.

I just cannot understand the rush in playing matches and how the standard will improve.

Is it the wish of all the clubs to finish by the end of August?

Just seems a bit mean that the Westerns are effectively penalised for having a county player!

I see the westies got their game moved afterall.The county board really pushed the boat out and moved it to Monday night....But I suppose they can be thankful for small mercys.For their sake hopefully tommy d recovers in time after tomorrow's bruising game against the dubs,will be a tough ask for him.
Looking forward to our game against the Mitchell tonight I'd say we'll give them a good run for their money hopefully.

Does anyone think the league has been rushed? Like there's already only what 3-4 league games left then what happens. Should it not of been spread out abit more ? Like I'm all for havin more consistent games but it feels like there just pushing out games for the sake of it

Rightly so. Every club wants their best players playing and available all the time. He should have least got another 24hours recovery
