GAA Discussion / Re: Should Tyrone speak to RTE
« on: August 21, 2018, 09:42:58 PM »
Were Tyrone paranoid when they were winning all Irelands or did it develop afterwards?

This skit would never be done on Pat Gilroy or Jack O'Connor.  It wouldn't?

No, it wouldn't. Yes for the obvious reason that they would not risk aggravating these people. But more importantly a lot of listeners would not know who they are, Micky Harte is well known outside GAA  circles because of his daughter and her death.

It’s correct. John murray made fun of harte’s pathetic attempt to dictate to rte about their internal promotions. He also played a song which was insensitive and clumsy but I very much doubt was deliberate. There no deliberate attempt to make fun of the tragedy.

You are in Barry bread on the head territory here, only more so, since everyone in RTÉ knew about Mickey's daughter as they made several programmes about it.
I'm also not happy about RTÉ pillorying people on air because they disagree with RTÉ management, that's not what I pay my licence for.

Jim's approach sounds really entertaining, Tyrone defend and Dublin refuse to attack.

it was 7 f**king years ago get over it Mickey,
WTF is wrong with people on this board!
That “sketch” came 7 months after his daughter was brutally murdered on her honeymoon. He and his family were in the depths of grief when this was broadcast to the nation. For me, that is something that any man would struggle to “get over” in his lifetime never mind in “7 f**king years”.
You are some ignorant pup.

The point being that RTÉ had huge coverage of Michaela's death, and not by the sports department. It wasn't that anyone wasn't aware of the situation.

Armagh beating Fermanagh 1993 preliminary round replay......daylight robbery😎

If you could give a score, based on the degree of theft that took place, this would win hands down. It's still mindboggling, twenty five years later.   :o

Holywood star quality

Rte have for years went out of their way to try to punish Tyrone so I wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire. If anyone from tyrone wants to appear on there once they're done playing then that's their personal decision.

Yes it was Ryle Nugent's personal obsession to stick it to Tyrone any chance he got!!

What a load of aul shite! Every team has gotten abuse from RTE from Armagh/Cavan/Donegal down to Cork and even the Dubs in their time why do Tyrone think they are so special in this regard.

I've heard the sketch on a few occasions to be honest I'm still not quite sure where the offense is (apart from the fact it was meant to be funny and it was just rambling nonsense)? And it most definitely wasn't Ryle Nugent or the Sports departments fault. The Carthy thing was just ridiculous and Harte's own fault for writing the letter.

Regardless of this there is a new head of programming in there so it just seems strange that someone who preaches the Catholic ethos etc. wouldn't forgive something so minor!

The song choice on the sketch, Pretty Little Girl from Omagh was probably what caused the offense.

I thought it well out of order at the time and the presenter of that show is now working with the sports department.

Harsh from The Sunday Game here.
Awards for the best things players have done.
Then, worst decisions officials have made.

Unless they have “Player who made a dick of himself” at the end.

It would be considered inappropriate to have a section for players who dropped the ball, hit a ridiculous wide, completely missed a tackle. But it is OK for referees.

It’s in Drogheda this year. Was a bit apprehensive but they’re putting up a good show.

Heart of the Pale, where Cromwell killed all the Irish people.

Here is one of the key note speakers at the world meeting of families, the event that coincides with the popes visit...

Does it sound to any of you like much has changed, to be lectured on the family by this sc**bag.

If I contacted some of his victims and they made a complaint against him, and I then reported his presence in this country to the Garda, could he be arrested?

I'm sure the gardai would find a reaaon not tyo arrest him

That is a matter for the Pennsylvania authorities, who seem to be on the case.

They should assemble a large crowd of 1000 normal people in Derry and go down and dismantle this obscenity.

no-one born on the island of Ireland is british. Fact.

  you see that is where you go wrong. At the very beginning. The word for what in your head is UKish is British. This is not a difficult concept and it would be embarrassing for you if you were to make this mistake again and worrying for those who care about you

The fact that is the case reflects the colonial nature of the state.

The DUP's reaching out in July hasn't lasted. Arlene on holiday next week and no one else heading down to me the pope. Every other party and church can get someone to attend.

They will all be sitting watching when Paisley met the pope instead.

All about keeping the votes.

This kind of carry on would  lose as many votes as it would  keep.

Michael Lowry will sort you out.

Hot Chocolate's 'It started with a kiss' is pretty dodgy if you cut it off here...

It started with a kiss, in the back row of the classroom
How could I resist the aroma of your perfume
You and I were inseparable, it was love at first sight
You made me promise to marry you, I made you promise to be my bride
But you were only eight years old

In fairness, one more line would have made things clear.

Oh Carole by Smokie...she was not 16 if you know what I mean....should been recorded by Gary.

Mexican girl by Smokie is a bit suspect too

Juanita came to me last night and she cried over and over
Ooh, Daddy I love you you know and I think it's the moonlight
She looked so fine, well she looked alright and she moaned
Ooh, Daddy move over
