I used to love watching TSG.
It's turned into an awful pile of shite though recently.

I see they have edited Ger Cannings commentating on the Sunday game. During the live match he hadn't a clue who scored the Tyrone goals.

Yeah did he say Mattie Donnelly for second goal?

Didn't bother watching it, have it recorded and will watch the match highlights & skip the "analysis"

The BBC cameraman showed Mattie Donnelly after the goal.

So kildare get tanked by the dubs and get ranked 5th out of 12. Rossies tank Galway and they are ranked 6th and 7th resp. Poor stuff lads.

For what its worth I'd say Down won't recover but Monaghan/Armagh are very capable of beating kildare
Sports lists are a joke
Who cares beyond 4 anyway?

Martin Brehony made a good living out of sports lists. Maybe he is the mastermind behind this latest Sunday game effort.

It's hard to believe Spillane still makes a living out of the rubbish he talked tonight. When putting the heal into Monaghan and their aspiration this year. Des says but sure Monaghan has a population similar to Carlow. Spillane says ''But they are a Division One team''. And panics with a statement that they have no forwards. To which Des says ''sure that's because the county is small?'' To which Spillane says they are a Division One team. Talk about being caught in the Headlights!

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.

Watching back now on the live show. So far they've messed up the graphics for the Down line-up and, despite being asked a direct question, Gooch has been unable to answer.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

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.
