Cushy broadcasting number coming up.

Looking forward to hearing him in the booth TBH

Yeah it seems like he'll be in with KB from Fox.

I've actually quite enjoyed Greg Olsen he's very much of the Romo mould and giving you a proper players insight it'll be interesting to see where he goes when Brady's in!

What's the feeling on the beer debate?

https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/letters/time-to-ban-the-booze-at-aviva-1.4839373

I know from going to games that it is just an excuse for a sess, but if you take away the badwagon the rugby community in Ireland is not that big, so what do they do?
As someone who has tried very hard to get into the sport after marrying into a rugby following family, I think I speak for the majority of GAA and soccer fans in Ireland that we can see why rugby gets a disproportionate amount of coverage in the media.

It’s boring lads, plain and simple. There’s the odd good game (I’m not defending soccer as I’m a GAA man) but it’s a hard watch.

It’s the 1st of February today and there’s barely a word about anyone “looking forward to the 6 nations” or at the water cooler in offices across the country (apart from D4).

If it was the week of the premier league starting in august or the all Ireland championship first round it would be hopping.

Is it any wonder the beer is needed. When you’re in round Dublin on an aviva match day for the rugby I’ve rarely seen anything other than a session even from South Africans and all opposition supporters who’ve travelled in.

Maybe if Ireland were to win the World Cup things would change but I don’t think so. The excitement isn’t there, there’s about 5/6 decent teams in the world , very small competition.

Bit like the AFL and NFL, if you’re struggling to sleep switch them on

Try and get a ticket for Ireland v England or Ireland v France and see how you get on!

The "throwing the tee" thing is a load of balls nothing in it.

If McIlroy doesn't want to shake his hand or speak to him he doesn't have to. To get subpoenaed on Christmas Eve for what I'm sure McIlroy sees as a bullshit lawsuit is hardly going to get Reed back in his good books.

Rory's not stupid either he knows the public perception of Reed I can't imagine he would have done the same to Mickelson or DJ who have a better name than Reed!

A small referring error that did not effect the outcome of the game has been blown all out of proportion with Joe Wally leading the charge.

Take a step back and have a lie down if needs be.

Glen objecting is absolute desperation stuff. If the GAA succumb to loud mouths in the press and order a replay, KC should politely decline and send the cup up the road in a taxi.
Why do people keep coming out with this line of tripe? We have no idea one way or the other if it had an impact or not on the outcome of the game. It certainly had impact on that passage of play, whether it changed the outcome or not. Even if only 1 in 20 of these last gasp chances end in goals, whos to say it wasnt to be Glens lucky shot? We have no idea and that much is 100% certain.

Are we going to replay every game in which refs make a mistake? The probability of Glen scoring a goal was low. Glen took the 45 before ref blew the whistle. It's the stuff of desperation on their behalf.


It's really not and as with all of these things they gauged public opinion and it's in their favour so they're going ahead with it which is their right!

Fun and games now… will the GAA grant a replay? Will KC play it? If so where and when? Will Glen actually play it or are they making a point of principle??

Originally I wasn’t in favour of a replay but the more the day has gone on I think Glen maybe should object.

Factually the objection is 100% justified but if they’d been playing a Caltra or a Ballinderry type small community club it wouldn’t sit well to do it and the optics probably wouldn’t be great.

That’s not the case here though they’re considering an objection against one of the biggest clubs in the Country who have just poached the 2nd best forward in the country to make up for their failings last season. I honestly think 99% of GAA people will be behind Glen in this instance so why the f**k not? The worst thing that can happen is you lose and sure that’s where they are right now anyway!!

Glen will have plenty of regrets about this game they were more than capable of beating Crokes but silly errors cost them badly and their main men not putting in the performances they’re capable of.

I think they’ll be back again though!
