Sickening disrespectful article by Brolly today. No surprise though in that rag. The Sunday Indo had no coverage of the Championship last weekend but gave a full page in the sports section to 'Rory's Stories', half page to gambling another to Joe... insightful GAA coverage in the Indo stable is non existent.

You could write the same article about the Rugby World Cup, the FA Cup, even the premier league to a large extent.  This piece is a classis smokescreen.  Editor tells him to do a championship preview.  he couldn't be arsed looking at new young players, the emergence of Kildare back to Division 1 after Back to Back promotions, Donegal looking strong with a new younger backbone, Galway maintaining some momentum, perhaps Cork even doing something this year.  It's far easier to go on a clichéd rant against the GAA, so today he insults all the counties in division 3 and 4, Tyrone, Meath, Sky Sports GAA, Senan Connell, Peter Canavan, Rachel Wyse, Monaghan, Donegal, Derry, all of Munster apart from Kerry (even though two more of their counties got to the Q final in 2016 and Tipp have been promoted). 

This is a person who knows absolutely nothing about football at all, but still manages to hog the spotlight.

The sports section on a Sunday is about the only decent section of that newspaper.

There is no decent section of that newspaper. An utter rag, and the daily edition is quickly catching up on it's Sunday version.

It has strong coverage of the Hutch-Kinahan feud, in-particular the ramifications from the Regency spectacular.

I'm no fan of Joe Brolly, but his interview last week on Off The Ball last week was very entertaining, in particular the line about needing to be careful not to get "knocked over by kangaroos" at lower level GAA courts.  ;D

Whereas the guy from the CHC came across as a pompous moron!

I actually thought Liam Keane explained a complex situation pretty well.  Good line about 30 inaccuracies in Brolly's interview.  Brolly certainly gave the impression that he steamrollered through the appeal hearing with a pint of Guinness in his hand spouting Latin showing the Dublin fancy Dans who was boss.  He wasn't even there.
I thought Keane handled himself very well.

I also thought it was a good opportunity to hear from GAA people in his role who constantly have their integrity questioned by GAA people as if they're up in Croke Park trying to screw all the weaker teams' players.

Had to laugh at that bit, showed Brolly up for the bullshitter that he is

Far from it, Benny.
Explained a complex issue very well, despite the clown of an interviewer butting in all the time.
Calm, logical and reasonable.
You'd know he was a Meath man.
