Given how one-sided the majority of championship matches have been over the last five years, it is no surprise that many GAA fans have latched onto various causes to stir their interest.
If I had to choose just one issue that has got the most people shouting, I couldn't - it would be an excruciating Sophie's Choice between cynical tactics and TV rights.
The decision by the GAA to sell part of their rights package to Sky in 2014 was massively criticised by fans, who felt they would be priced out of watching the summer's inter-county action and as the rights come up for sale after next season, that sentiment has changed little.
So where will we be watching the championship from 2017?
RTE has been haemorrhaging live sports recently, losing both last autumn's Rugby World Cup and the Six Nations from next year. Theoretically that should give them more financial clout to consolidate their GAA coverage but their rivals are lurking.
TV3 have upped their sports offering by showing the aforementioned World Cup and outbidding RTE for the Six Nations rights while Setanta Sports will have more purchasing power after being taken over by Eir before Christmas.
And of course there is still Sky. While the ratings for their GAA coverage haven't been massive, they may want to once again bid for a part of the package.
Ultimately RTE do an excellent job with the GAA championship and thankfully for fans, while the national broadcaster has lost some big events, that should mean they are able to hold onto the rights to the national game.
