Great to see a newbie. Could do with a few more posters to liven things up.

On a separate topic, I want to give some praise to the CB (Lord knows I don't give them much), for their coverage during the championship.

Certainly can still be improved upon. I'd like to see the papers with a bit more info and interviews, the league coverage really needs to be upped next year (or why would lads bother taking it serious?).
But overall during the championship, the coverage from both the CB and clubs has been very good. The live streams worked very well, even if they are just for the games in Markevievcz. I do think it really helps lads putting in a big effort, if they know an effort is being made to promote their game. I don't remember a year where games were as easy to track overall. Hopefully that can continue to improve in 2021.

Or maybe I'm just drinking less :)

Agree wholeheartedly. Plus Cathal Mullaney is excellent at a commentary. Miles ahead of what was before him

The analysis was very good and the lads knew a lot about the players involved. But something has to be done about the camera work. The games at the start were good as it was one camera angle but the sideline camera was a disaster. completely ruined the viewing and added nothing . the close ups of a player soloing served no purpose

Streaming and commentary was very good, however once you pay you should have access to the game for good and not have it expire after a week...and have to pay again.
Only surprise of the WE was the gap in Junior A result.
It looked like there might be a swing in the direction of Silverware this year with 3 teams from the northern part of the county involved but as it turns out all 3 went south.
Regarding Gus in senior game, don't think he was hard in DRP considering Logan got so many frees to kick/score, also think their goal was square ball but no matter now, it could have been a major talking point if it went DRP way in the end. Logan flawless on frees. Lally very good and needs to be given more scope in Sligo team, not stuck in FF. Power also deserves a call up. Harte excellent for this stage of his career. Would also love to see J Kelly back in Sligo colours, just has that ability to glide around defenders which is rare.

Yes. I agree on a season pass but considering how quick it was thrown together, not bad at all.

Logan is a very good free taker surely and Lally was getting an opportunity in fairness until Covid. i'm sure he's very much in Taylors plans for the future. Power as good as what's there too you'd think, yes. And have to wholeheartedly agree on Kelly. He wants the ball all the time. Seems to be one of very few Tour players that is permitted to run at players. Something we have very little of in our county panel at the moment. Think he would be a tremendous addition to have in again.

Lot of good points here, Curry forward line is the most potent in Intermediate any day you get 17 points from 3 players spread evenly you would expect to be winning a game and a couple more chipped in with scores aswell.

Tourlestrane did as expected, fair play to Drumcliffe for keeping them honest but watching the game I never got the feeling that they were in any danger they were always keeping Drumcliffe at arms length.

As many posters have said the streaming was a great option and even clubs own individual coverage was improved drastically from previous years so hopefully this will continue.

Would echo a lot of people that it would be great to see Johnny Kelly back with the county team but maybe it just isn't viable for him with his work situation
