what a joke those lists are.............Roscommon 6th what a farce, they would be eaten alive by the likes of monaghan.......not a top ten at all....the usual poor sporting analysis....the most recent performance of a team blinds all.
Monaghan on Saturday evening didn't eat Carlow of Div 4 alive and were knocked out of Ulster by Down. The best and most detailed ranking list around is over on boards.ie
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Do we need former players to comment and analyse games?

Has there to be always a Kerryman on every panel?

Why are there no connacht representatives anymore?

Because if you take the job you end up managing Roscommon.

McStay managed Roscommon teams before he ever became a pundit on RTE. That said there's no shortage of Mayomen in the pundit business: James Horan, John Maughan, Martin Carney, Tommy Lyons, Billy Joe Padden, David Brady, the afore mentioned McStay. They certainly rival if not exceed any county when it comes to representation in broadcast media.

Martin Carney is a Donegal man. His 2012 All Ireland co-commentary proved that! There is presently no representative from the 5 counties of Connacht!

Sunday Game have sank to new depths. Ranking 12 counties and then sticking camogie analysis in the middle of the programme. Then shove the qualifier matches at the end of the programme.

They have beefed up the analysis with Shefflin in the hurling and Gooch for football. These are two of the greatest players of the modern era. And it's interesting to watch the dynamics of the clowns when they talk to them. The big question is how the 2 legends will influence the discourse.  Will they manage to drag the clowns to a higher standard? Or will they fall to the level of the clowns and start talking shite ?

Gerlock was on after the Cork Tipp match writing poetry to Munster hurling , so happy that Henry could share it.

Martin Carney is one blabbermouth throughout the whole game and manages to say nothing.

How is that gobshite still on the telly? Announces at start of second half McCarthy gone to midfield Kilkenny to centre forward. What game was he watching in first half  ;D

I actually think Shefflin is one of the weakest hurling pundits

Thought Aaron Kernan was very good, obviously has the in depth knowledge of the Armagh scene to help.

What a completely useless piece of analysis the ranking was. "Aaron, you put Donegal one place higher than the other lads, what's the thinking there?" Utterly pointless!
That was never a square ball!!

The hype Des put into these top 12 lists was unreal, then when the panel was ready to name them they all turned over a sheet of paper, didn't want any coping or they'd all have to start again.

no offence to the Camogie, but surely they are deserving of their own highlights programme?
same with the Ladies Football?
