Super 8'S Croke Park Fixture Have Elsewhere?

(Oldest Posts First)

How about taking the so called 'Croke Park game' on the road?
Rotate the weekend around the 4 provinces each year!
So for example play next year in Cork or Thurles/Limerick and the next year round of fixtures be in Galway or Castlebar and so on up to Ulster...
That way its gives the fans a great chance to travel to different venues and also generates a boost for them towns/counties as well. The grounds would be near capacity also and create a better atmosphere, as a result this reserves Croker for 'that special day' from the semi finals onwards.
It also takes away the so called unfair advantage that people think that the dubs have, although I disagree! I personally love the Super 8's and with a bit of fine tuning, it could be great.
Will congress ever go for it?

I'd scrap the super 8s, waste of time and money, causes too many injuries to players, costs a fortune for supporters, too many dead rubber matches, it's only a money making racket for the GAA with TV rights, go back to the old quarterfinals knockout matches
