It looks like Tomas O'Shea actually isn't taking the time to watch some of the games that he's reflecting on and just reverts to cliche'd diatribe to get through his slot.  Disappointing.  Man, these TV licenses kill me...

He said Kildare v Tyrone was a terrible game but by all account i heard it was very exciting with some good scores. I thought Sean Cavanagh had some homework done on what he was saying. Sure a Kerry man only needs a few cute hoor cliches and sure that will be grand altogether.

It seems to me that there is a directly inverse relationship between the amount of analysis/homework done Vs the length of time on the panel.

Kavanagh being new to the panel feels like he has to do some work to warrant him getting the gig. Tomas is there a few years now so has realised rte will pay him the say regardless of how much prep work he does!

So I could watch a match through your eyes and listen to the commentary through your ears with the technology available to us now?
What an age we live in.

You never know, you might be able to think what he thinks too. 🤤

I don't think I've enough RAM.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

was good to see a bit of our game on last night. And they even showed the div3/4 tables. Maybe they read this thread

Or maybe they had no footage due to cancelations, had to borrow Armagh TV footage and had to show the table to make the approach plausible. Lets see does another Div 3 match get shown for the rest of the year.

I hear Smug Jim is now refusing to talk to RTÉ.
I presume they'll have to stop all GAA coverage now.

If every single manager in the country stopped giving interviews it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

Agreed. The way people get annoyed about media bans you’d think every county manager and footballer in the country was Jose mourinho.

If it helps reduce the potential for high profile managers sucking money out of county boards, then I agree, stop interviewing them, stop building them and their tactics up.

I'm a big fan of GAA players/managers doing proper in-depth interviews, particularly on the radio or in print.
The stuff that is said immediately pre and post-game on live TV/radio is of no interest to me.

The problem is that less Mickey and Jim means more Ó Sé, Dabollix etc.
