Many fans are unhappy about the poor value for money from so many one-sided early championship games. On its own, " 20 or " 30 a ‘pop’ seems small enough, but if you include a spouse and a few kids, it’s no joke. Although Dubs and Biffo fans are happy to see their counties go through to the next round in Leinster hurling, there’s a feeling that neither Laois nor Westmeath made any great attempt to stop them. Meanwhile, the Munster football fare on offer at Fermoy and Ennis seems to have been really dire and it makes Limerick fans fearful of the competition after Munster’s Heineken Cup win.
