RTE pundit in complaining that RTE don't have all GAA games shocker.


Whatever your views on the Sky deal, the place to air those views is not on one of the two broadcasters' highlight show.

Seriously - there's about 40 people at the game, why are they wasting time showing a game nobody has interest in, when the weekend was packed of top level hurling and football games.

He didn't say RTÉ should have it, but that it should be on a service everyone can watch.

He is right but I don't think the best place to air it is as a paid RTE pundit on an RTE show.

There is some difference between the football and the hurling pundits

Some analysts alright - Cork score a point which consists of a defender intercepting a ball and sprinting out of defence with it, playing a long pass into the forwards where a cork forward wins it, spins and puts it over the bar. Michael Duignan says that's a great team score by cork. 2 players involved and it's a great team score, great analysis alright.

He didn't say RTÉ should have it, but that it should be on a service everyone can watch.
He went on with the usual shite about his 83 year old mother/father at home unable to watch the match.

There's probably an 83 year old from Dublin, Tipperary, Meath, Donegal, Carlow, Leitrim, Cavan and Tipp that couldn't see their team on the box either. But those teams' games weren't on Sky so it's not fair game.

Also, his point was that the Kilkenny v Waterford game was a great game and so it should have been on. Would he have minded had it been as one-sided as the Dublin v Tipp game?

Des Cahill showing some blatant bias there highlighting a wee push by Cillian. I'd say he gets nice little perks from Dublin GAA.

Watching The Sunday Game here (recorded) and have got as far as the end of the Galway versus Roscommon match and it turns out that the wee man who was on The Sunday Game for ages is actually the manager of Roscommon now who are just after winning Connacht. A great boost for the show.

The typical Sunday game analysts bashing of Mayo continues. Citing O’Connor incident and Harrison’s dump tackle stating they were both lucky not to see red!I could see nothing in the O’Connor incident when they zoomed in. Nothing said about the atrocious standard of reffing where great tackles were given as frees and fouls were waved play-on on both sides

Ah they have to have something to talk about - Isn't it great they are taking notice of an auld 3rd round qualifier in Ennis?
