It's a sorry saga as Roscommon self-destruct again
A league which has been seriously underwhelming in terms of crowds, excitement and quality is beginning to take shape.
In many respects, though, the competition has been a bit overshadowed by events off the field. The chickens coming home to roost could darken the sky with the Cork situation if Meath survive in Division 2 on the strength of the two points they were awarded.
Cavan's win over Cork last weekend might even the scales there, while the other county who look destined for relegation, Roscommon, seem to have enough internal problems without looking for more. Some dreadful performances so far make any appeal against other teams getting points from Cork appear a bit off the mark at this stage in terms of their own survival.
