Did anyone see Joe being interviewed by Dáire O Cinneide on GAA Nua a week ago?

It went something like this:

JB - What is the Super 8 doing for grassroots? Even calling it the Super 8......
DOC - Well it wasn't the GAA that called it that.......
JB - ....(confused look).........well it was inevitable that it was going to be called that.

It's a great sketch and he's great at Brollys mannerisms even if the accent is a bit off. Loughnane is hilarious.

He had a line that went

"You have some neck on you Ger, ha"
"I have no neck ha"
Last of the choc-ices there now

We've seen less and less of Joe Brolly this year on RTE. Hopefully they've seen him for the bluffer he is (Galway are shite, tell a story, use big words) Watching SKY yesterday showed what analysis could be when it is done properly. Peter Canavan brilliant. James Horan excellent. They just cover the game!  No insults, no personal attacks, no rambling stories, no egotistical posturing and no raindrops on the camera ffs.

Sky coverage is miles ahead of RTE - proper analysis of games. Although McGuiness is a loss to their coverage. I don't get the anti sky agenda - any time I go to watch something on RTE player it says available island of Ireland only despite the fact that I live in the fking island!
Also just get a fking fire stick l :)

It's not surprising that most of the praise for Sky is coming from Tyrone homers and other Ulster counties Joe has offended.

If Sky is better than RTÉ, some here are easily amused by a touch screen and a pretty lady.

Is it difficult to understand that the TV3 package was available fta including Canavan's absolutely unique brilliant incisive punditry (the sweeper shoulda got in front of his man there), now this same package is available on Sky with the same commentators, similar pundit format, for a subscription fee and that's the main gripe with Sky. A Sky sub costs extra money on top of a tv license and Sky's viewing figures are pathetic, both in Ireland and Britain.

What was the TV3 figures like in Britain?
That was never a square ball!!
