that is another can of worms opened now TYP! 
Was going to say the Cavan team of the 40's may have been annoyed too, they are within the boundaries of UTV afterall

This is a disgrace.

Do you think that Channel 10 in Melbourne would leave Aussie Rules stars out of a tv show thats about top sports people?!!

George Best was never successful on the world stage.

He was a major part of a successful European Cup team.

a european club comptition,hardly the world stage
Dosnt make any difference the programme wasnt about people on the world stage it was about people from here...Therefor GAA stars should have got the coverage they deserve....

The European Cup was and is the most prestigious club competition in the world.

Never liked Gerry Kelly anyway, so didn't watch the show.

His talkshow was rubbish, full of British soaps talking about rehab. Either that and bloody Westlife, the supposedly cream of Irish musical talent(!)

I remember two weeks ago, when Gerry announced his retirement, UTV said that the entertainment world was in shock....... aye right :lol:

Were there any rugby players highlighted? Over the period highlighted Willie John McBride and Mike Gibson were both pretty good.

Any one emailed UTV for an official explanation?

ps what the Mailbag program on BBC with Terry Wogan maybe a mailing campaign to them since they seem to answer the most trivial questions

Anyway, long story short... is a phrase whose origins are complicated and rambling.

Someone could post a thread and have everyone agree with it .Would be hard too ignore a thread with 40 + replys when the average has 4.

Oh dear God, this definitely requires a protest to UTV!

With all due respect, that is just stupid.

the whole best thing really winds me up,there is no argument about hid talent but how he ran his life leaves alot to be desired,healy is by far and away a better role model for the kids of this country and dont even start me on the airport

I completely agree.

club being the operative word.

The club he played for is one of the most famous if not the most famous football club in the world winning the most prestigious club tournament in the world.  So back to my original point.

Anyway, if these are Gerry Kelly's sporting heroes from Northern Ireland then fair enough whatever sport he chooses or leaves out.
it's 'circle the wagons time again' here comes the cavalry!
