James Horan doesn't fully back league-based championship proposal

"If things were left as is, I’d be okay with that."

Mayo boss James Horan has some reservations about the proposed Plan B option that will be discussed by special congress on Saturday.

Plan B is the league-based championship proposal that will see the league become the championship, played in the summer, and your position at the end of that league determines whether or not you made the quarter final stages.

However, Horan isn't entirely convinced by the proposal, as he believes there are a few "flaws" in it.

“Proposal B is getting great traction at the moment and our own county man Tom Parsons is putting a great shove behind it and doing a great job in his new role (CEO) with the GPA.

"It’s an interesting one. I think proposal B is solid but there are flaws in it.

“You can have guys battering away in Division One who won’t get a crack at an All-Ireland final when the winners of Division Three and Four will, a different standard or level so I’m not sure that it’s the right proposal.

"That’s just my take on it. If things were left as is, I’d be ok with that and if there’s a slight tweak I’d be ok with that, too.

“I’m not sure proposal B is in my opinion exactly what...well I don’t think we should rush into it. I suppose that’s what I think.”
