While they're at it they should jettison Kevin Kilbane - a dose if ever there was one.

I like Killer
Killer is very good,  still the clean cut killer.

Who's not allowed on OTB?

Gerry Thornley not allowed on the Rugger section he's been doing for 12 years -

Gerry Thornley‏ @gerrythornley · 18h18 hours ago 

Yup, in reply to all the queries, I will not be on Wed Night Rugby on Off the Ball tonight. After 12 years! Gotta admit, feels strange.

I hadn't heard that, because I have been weaning myself off OTB for a long auld while, the kimmage stuff re the dubs was the last straw for me.

That is an absolutely terrible decision, the media is a small enough industry in Ireland, and it is hard enough to make a crust without bans being implemented. I would hope that Second Captains pick up thornley.

OTB bal has be come one massive in joke for the presenters . hitting a low every Friday with the quiz which sounds like the biggest arseholes in a pub arguing over the qualities of Di stefano V Puskas that none of them have ever seen.
but the ultimate low was them going live while pissed at the electric picnic

Excuse my ignorance but who exactly has a problem with Irish Times journalists and what is that problem?

Afaiu, the OTB crew do not have an issue with the IT and are opposed to such a fanatic position but comply all the same.

I mean, in this day and age of emotional maturity, could you imagine a GAA county board, front room staff and players boycotting RTE because they were unhappy with their coverage.  Never! ::)

Great Podcast from Off the Ball yesterday. Paul Kimmage, Padraig Harrington and Joe Molloy doing the sports paper review. Harrington is great, just an interesting man.

By interesting, do you actually mean odd and boring?

I don't and I liked them on OTB and have been to their TV gig but I think OTB with Joe Molloy as the anchor has gone up another level.
