GAA Discussion / Re: Should Tyrone speak to RTE
« on: August 20, 2018, 04:19:13 PM »
It was well out of order. At worst, it was a calculated insult because Mickey Harte had clashed with RTE before. At best, it was inconsiderate, and ignorant of the circumstances.

RTE should have apologised for it, in a real way, rather than the 'if you took offense we're sooooo soooorrrry'.

They did apologise, what do you want? The dj in question sacked? Thatís obviously what harte wanted or carthy installed as big game commentator. It was one person on rte who was insensitive towards the harte family but of course he holds a vendetta against the whole company.

Their apology, unless I'm mistaken, was 'If you were offended, we're sorry you were offended'. That's not an apology, that's weasel stuff.

What way does it work in reality? Straight after a game do RTE radio and tv interviewers know not to approach tyrone players. Surely in the heat of the moment a Tyrone player could be caught off guard and answer a few questions. Would they ask "are you from RTE?"

For an All Ireland it's more the build up. You see the fluff pieces that are on telly, d'internet and Up for the Match, and the buildup itself.

Although I might be wrong, was it only John Kiely that spoke to the media coming up to the game yesterday?

I'd say there's a fair chance of a slot opening up.

He's from Kerry, no interest in the small ball!

There's lads in North Kerry wouldn't agree with you. Actually I think there's hurling below in Kenmare as well. But sure that lad is as mad as a bag of ferrets.

I tend to agree with that. I was afraid that the final was going to end up being a damp squib that the championship definitely didn't merit. My fears about Limerick's shooting came true, but I didn't expect Galway to suffer from the same malaise. That saved Limerick. The last 15 minutes rescued the game, and gave the championship the climax it deserved at the end.

There was one moment that summed up the 'new' Limerick attitude, and it happened very early in the game, maybe 2 or 3 minutes in. Cian Lynch won a ball on the ground, via a chop pickup (where you chop the sliotar into the ground and it comes up into your hand). I thought it was audacious and in the first few minutes I think it showed Limerick felt they were comfortable there. The fact he did it again in the last couple of minutes when the fat was was in the fire was unreal.

re Marty, he's too scripted. He has these monologues ready to go, and by hook or by crook he's going to get them in. He started on the Limerick victory speech way too early. Talking about Ballybrown, Kilmallock and ''Downtown Patrickswell" (FFS). I said to my wife that he was a bit early bringing out that speech. And as for the 'Linger' stuff, painful and forced. Marty's introduction on radio to the final last year was very good. It made the hair on your neck stand up. The problem there is it went viral, and I think Marty now feels everything has to have a 'moment'. Yesterday was a day when a few well placed words would have been enough as the emotion was obvious. but he had to go full blown soliloquy and he gilded the lily.

Mary gave a great monologue before the final last year on the radio. He tried it again this year. I wonder will he go for it a third time. During the parade referring to exiles etc.

Just watching the camogie here. Does anyone know why women arenít allowed to have a metal band on their sticks? They either have no band or have to tape it up.

Itís not as if the band is causing many serious injuries in hurling.
Seems an odd rule.

There are two things I dislike about camogie. 1 is the goalkeeping, and the second is the way they can drop the hurley and do a two handed handpass. It looks rotten.
