From Declan bogue in the Bel Tel:
The proposals originated from another Ulster man, which appears to have convinced their particular delegates to Congress to fall into line.
As counties of the current President and Director-General, Cavan and Monaghan respectively will give support to their men. It took a heated meeting on Monday night, but Fermanagh, Antrim and Armagh are all on board.
But if anything is going to sway opinion, it is the bottom line of when counties would finish their involvement in county football.
Duffy’s proposals came with a rather handy table pointing out how that might have turned out had the changes been implemented in time for the season just past.
Antrim: finished four weeks earlier. Armagh: Five. Cavan: Three. Derry: a fortnight. Donegal: One week. Down: Four weeks. Fermanagh: Four weeks. Monaghan: Four weeks. Tyrone: A week.
At this point, it appears the only counties that are prepared to vote against the ‘Super 8s’ system are Derry, Tyrone, Down, Cork and Kilkenny.
