John Maughan Roscommon manager
Roscommon football boss John Maughan has again called for the abolition of system of qualifiers. The Mayo native reckons the back door system has aided the bigger guns and has taken the wow factor out of the championships. "The back door has ruined it - the big guns will always get back in that way," Maughan declared. "I've heard hurling people talking about teams that might be suited to the back door and I don't like hearing that kind of stuff. "I'm all for the winner takes all, the real excitement of a 70-minute game. "It's affecting attendances and I think the thing has run its course."
