Hurling Teams Out Of Their Depth?

There is a gap between Limerick and everybody else at the moment, so is it fair to surmise that every county is out of their depth................?

Very fair point. An influence on the current league format is that 1A counties were left a little embarrassed for fighting tooth and nail to avoid 1B. 1B counties were then going on to win the All-Ireland and were starting in 1B again in the following year.
If the GAA do revert back to 1A and 1B on metric, the current system will allow them break away from 1B team ls joining the 1A knockout stage.

Limerick got promoted the year they won the AI. Same as us in 96. Galway were league and AI champions in 2017 but we finished top of the table and got promoted, while they finished 2nd and didnt. That's why finals and semifinals are ridiculous and need to be got rid of, and why 2 up and 2 down needs to be introduced.
