Replying To CiarraiMick:  "The success of the county team is irrelevant.The facts are because Kerry have only 8 senior clubs it means teams ranked 9 to 16 are intermediate.Kerry s intermediate teams would beat many senior club teams from alot of counties.Kerins O Rahillys contested an All ireland senior semi and were unlucky and following year are intermediate.Its no coincidence Kerry have thrived in the intermediate club scene.We should have at least 12 senior clubs.Smaller counties have more senior clubs than us."
I'd agree with you Mick. Nobody expects all senior clubs to be full of intercounty standard players. That's not the case in any county. Some senior clubs might have nobody on the county panel. As you said, all reasonably sized football counties have 12 to 16 senior clubs.
12 would still be fewer than counties like Mayo, Kildare, Meath, Tyrone, Galway and Dublin, but would bring a better balance to the overall structure.
It would give club teams a fairer shot at a county championship, by reducing the pool of the divisional teams.
