Just noticed, and I'm sure it has probably been mentioned elsewhere.
It is the small matter that we could be playing Donegal back to back "away", tough games.
Then again, sure we'll be in the division 1 final of course.....

If we can beat the Farney men then relegation is no longer an issue (we'd probably pick up another couple of points somewhere). Consequently, the training regime can be directed towards max performance in the championship Donegal game, even if it compromises performance in the next league game. In this small league division there is not that much between the relegation zone and playing in a final, but the latter is not important, an Ulster would be better.

I see our last game is fixed for letterkenny and not ballybofey probably a ploy from donegal before the championship game. If we can have the league title wrapped up before this game and not show our hand it would be great ;)

That would most likely be mind games. No letting us get a game in Bally-old-bofey before the next time we beat them - I wish, but the mind games thing is possibly about right.

When Armagh were in their prime we played in Clones to allow people attend. Why should we not expect Antrim to do them same?

Having watched Donegal now a few times I am confident that we can go there and win in the championship. They are not the team they were, do not seem to know who their first 15 should be, and Murphy is not the influence he used to be as the game has got quicker and he is not as mobile.
Our squad is strong and performances must have raised the team's confidence. At the moment we look as good as any team.

It should not be about money, it should be about people willing to go and support their county and the GAA stopping them.
So if you know and expect 15,000 in attendance and the capacity of the venue is 7,000 do you stick to 7,000 in attendance or go for a larger venue. It's not like a concert where you can put on another show
Remember we have families, older persons, disabled persons all looking to attend

It's a difficult question to answer because it's like one of those multiple questions that you 5 options seems to have 2 right answers but you're only allowed to select one.

It can be argued both ways it's Antrim's fault - shouldn't have closed casement at the time. It could still be open but then the stand was not in great shape.

Every county should be able to play at home if their grounds meet the standards. However if the standards are met but doesn't meet the capacity required for the anticipated attendance should spectators lose out. There are always spectators who miss out
