Clare football manager Colm Collins has reiterated his opposition to the Super 8 format, describing the new structure as a “cynical exercise in collecting more money”.

Collins isn’t a fan of the current championship format but fears the new proposals are any better in catering for the needs of the 32 counties.

Moreover, the Clare football manager wants the provincial championships abolished claiming many “are dying on their feet”.

He accepts, however, that Croke Park top-brass would never wield the axe on the four provincial competitions.

“Finance is the stumbling block to doing away with the provincial championships, but if the finance is divided pro rata to each of the provincial councils, I don’t think it can be a big thing,” Collins said.
