Good to have the music back, even if its a gay version of its former self.

Heeeeeeey! I like the new version.

I see that the Championship is still blocked to the North. Gonna have to work around that, but I see that this year, it is available world-wide on a Wednesday.

Pints, you'll be able to watch it on Wednesday night..... wait, you're on dial-up aren't you! ;)

Yeah, its not as good as the original, theres some backing vocals on it from what I heard that just dont sit right. Like some blokes humming the tune in the back-ground
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Hey you! stop that,

Watched it last night online, it would be a big improvement if they just got rid of Spillane, all the graphics and new studio layouts wont make a difference if he's there.

The noise when a graphic pops up on screen annoys me, but the view above is stupid. Other than that, looks good.

A piece of incisive analysis from Tommy Lyons after the Wicklow v Kildare game "Like, you know....like" Tremendous stuff.

ALl of it is terrible apart from the bit of graphic stuff that Tohill did.  Remember, these muppets have the benefit of five hours to ponder what they are going to say and you'd swear it was the first time they'd thought about it when asked the first question.
Dreadful.  No incisive analysis. Joanne Cantwell made about three errors in her first sentence.  And who decided it was a good iidea to have her and Tohill sitting in the background as a distraction.  Give me cheap and cheerful BBC any day.  At least McHugh and Burns know the game and look interested in what they are talking about.

Someone tell Tommy Lyons Armagh didn't win their last 2 games in the League. I know everyone makes mistakes but when your an analyst basing your opinion on a team's championship chances on inaccurate facts, there's something seriously wrong.

Hard to criticise the Sunday game at this stage when most of the games are shite due to mismatches and teams not been fully match fit .

Give it time folks hopefully the games get better when Ulster and Leinster have the quarter finals . What do people think of the suggestion Carlow should not be in the championship ?

So which Sunday Game analysts don't know the game?

Bulldung. Tony Davis has a right f**king cheek. "They shouldn't be in the competition. I was embarrassed for them." I was right and embarrassed for Cork getting a tanking in the AI final. I watched Carlow against Antrim in the league. They were very unlucky and easily could have won the game. Some very handy footballers. They'd a bad day today. Give them a break ffs.

I think yer being a bit harsh there lads, it's not faultless but I'm not sure what you can expect in the small window of opportunity analysts get to speak. I can't understand why there isn't a mid week show that allows analysts to review the previous games in more detail and preview the upcoming games. With a phone and text in aspect to the show it could lead to some interesting discussions.

Not sure about that but the provincial format for the championship has outlived it's usefulness and needs to go. The power brokers in the GAA need to take the bull by the horns here and try to change the way we run our inter county competitions.

Pea Brain.

Stop making this a statto board - a mistake fair enough, but lets take it more seriously than that.

As it is said "Without gorwing Crops a man can't harvest in Winter, Summer or for his matchday sunday"

I think we all should think about this before criticising.

A man who criticises walks on "the other Bridge from me", Which Armagh man said that then lads?

I think Tommy Lyons is used to make all the other pundits look good.
