Would be the best thing for players and supporters . Best case scenario all goes to plan and everyone is vaccinated by September/October and we call all attend the games. Players don't want to play in front of empty stadiums either

That would be ideal except for 2 things. Firstly will cases have dropped enough to run the club championships in June or July? And secondly I dont think inter county hurling suits winter pitches as well....but then that goes for everyone and it would be great to be able go to matches too. Hard 1 to call.

Replying To Afinestick:  "Surely it would make more sense to play club first. Club Championship from June/July until early September. I see people worried of repeat of club celebrations last year but vast majority of the country should be vaccinated by September. Then Inter County end of September/ early October to start of December. This would mean there is a good chance we could all attend the games. Do inter county players really want to play in empty stadiums again which they will be if we go ahead with summer championship."
I'd rather watch my club team in person than watch any Wexford team to be honest.

clubs wont be going first,if push comes to shove the clubs will be abandoned for the year.
it will all depend on numbers,and on vaccines.

Seen the 2020 club awards were announced last night. Pa Doyle and Conor Hearne getting player of the year awards while Ross Banville and Liam Coleman getting young player of the year in each code.

All the individual award winners were richly deserved and the correct choice. The only gripe I would have with the Teams of the Year would be the lack of representatives of the Intermediate grade in the football. Seemed to be picked on reputation more than the hurling, which was very well balanced.

Didn't tune in myself (clashes with a club fundraiser), and genuinely don't know how many of the public voted and whether the night was deemed a success. But I would hope it'll be an annual event.

I would love to see the hurling team of the year take on the rest of the county hurlers. I think it would be an interesting game. In a normal year it would be a good idea to open the season, and provide a shop window for some of the best clubs players!

Would be a competitive game too with plenty of points to prove!

This was a thing back in the 2008-2010 sort of era, it didnt get much attraction last time I was at one there was no more than 200 people there to watch

If you are waiting for an exhibition match in December to prove your point, what were you at for the rest of the year?

Might be a good place for the numerous fantastic players getting overlooked for the county panel, according some posters, to show what they can do?

Only thing is looking at the team of the year there is very few that have been mentioned here as should be given a run, perhaps Cullen and Banville but can anyone say they have been baying for Lacey and Hearne in the middle of the park?
What I find interesting is that in the first round of the championship it was the county men that were standing out but by the end of it only three got on this team and one, a lot of lads on here give a lot of flack. In hindsight perhaps reflecting what was to happen in the Championship.

I have a vague recollection of attending 1 of these matches, it was pouring rain about a week before Christmas, not the time of year to stand out?
