The motion passed last night allowing the defeated divisional finalists another chance in the county championship. I don't think i'm for it, it's very hard to beat a team twice and it also diminishes the importance of the divisional final ( which i guess was the aim of the whole thing).

Surely the divisions were against this?

Of course. There was an interview with Sean McCarthy (Seandun Secretary) a few Sundays ago on C103. He sounded resigned. He knows the game is up. John Fintan Daly sounded as bullish as ever last Sunday (also on C103) about divisions. A good match between Knocknagree and Cullen is not a good enough reason for keeping the status quo - 100+ teams in the same comp with one promotion spot! Time for premier junior (or call it whatever you want-what is in a name?). In 2018 we will have it.

A joke, who ever heard of a county board being able to award two wild cards in to a championship

Welcome to Cork, we do things differently here. Look where its got us. I cant believe the boards who were against this didn't kick up more of a fuss

Next year, they will be picking 16 wildcards when we have a premier junior championship!! An 800% increase... Hopefully we'll see some improvements in the HSE in the mean time.

The wild card is gone. Thank fuck. As you say a joke. Hopefully to keep the integrity of the divisional championships, they'll hold off the draw for the county until the divisions are finished. I've heard that these draw will be in August. Will each division be finished in August? With Peter Kelleher, the O'Driscolls x 3 , Seamus Harnedy, Kevin Crowley, Mark Ellis, Colm O'Neill all playing junior I wonder.

Any idea of who the favourites for hurling and football are? Kilmurry play Uibh Laoire in the first round next week, you'd imagine there's a good chance both will meet again further on in the year. Knocknagree in Duhallow, Ballyclough in Avondhu, Carbery is a minefield. One of those four and the two that'll emerge from Carbery. I assume we can rule out contenders from Carrigdhoun, Seandun and Beara though Shamrocks went to the county final last year.

I'd imagine Kilmichael and Kilmurry will be strong. Carbery is significantly weakened now that Bandon and Gabriels are gone. I hear Kilmacabea and going well, St Marys won't be far away. Carrigdhoun Seandun and Beara have nothing. Did Ballyclough come out last year? I'd fancy knocknagree
