Maybe Joe.ie should get the GAA rights. They do proper analysis during week and Cian Ward is brilliant. With Amazon getting Premier League games surely this is an option. RTE will never do the game any favours.

Let me get this right. Donegal v Down is not Live on TV, anywhere? In my day, the BBC did both semis Live, presented from Croker, had a midweek Show, etc. I always believe ‘if there’s a will there’s a way’. There has been a serious will in 10 years. https://t.co/DcF3KUv6z9  Jerome Quinn

RTE football highlights was a step in the right direction.

Peter Canavan's attire raised worries for me. Is he ok at the minute?

Just stop right there.

They do it a good service when they're not click baiting and bantering. Their shows are very good.

World of difference between a podcast and broadcasting live games.

Just seeing today the ridiculous stick Sky got for continuing to show Tyrone v Meath live when it went to extra time, rather than switching over to Kilkenny v Wexford!

Talk about a no-brainer - the last 20 minutes of a knockout game versus the first 20 of a group game.

What was ridiculous was it was on two channels....surely put the hurling on one and carry on the football on the other

Main event isn't a channel with its own content. It's a mirror of whatever the biggest thing from the other channels is, usually with punditry cut down. The hurling snobs will be grand, They're getting everything else this year.

True enough but they've had some "product" especially in Munster.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.
