Speaking at the launch of the Football Review Committee (FRC) structure changes, chairman Eugene McGee said: "competition structures are at the very heart of how football operates and there were broadly two key aspects to be addressed -- inter-county structures and club fixture-making."
But what, in fact, did they actually address regarding inter-county structures?
After consulting 4,000 people, in a process that took close to a year, the best that they came up with was to move three of the worst counties in Leinster and the worst county in Ulster into the Munster and Connacht championships.
