The latest:

http://www.independent.ie/regionals/braypeople/lifestyle/thank-you-gooch-youre-an-inspiration-35653676.html

Joe loved the interview because he knew that in an interview that should have solely been about the career of a superb sportsman, the focus would at some point turn to Joe himself. Mission accomplished for Joe. Now to write a bullshitty little article about what a great fella Gooch is altogether and how there's no hard feelings.
That was never a square ball!!

Am I missing something here? Is that interview anything to do with Brolly, other than he was mentioned in it?

I think that was Benny's point, Joe was mentioned in an article which had nothing to do with him. Everywhere Gooch goes, he has to deal with being asked how he feels about Brolly's comments as if they had such import.  Joe's being talked about ---- everywhere.

Benny is spot on. Brolly comments controversially on topical items so then he becomes the story. He is a skilled barrister so can make an argument out of anything which gives him credibility, even though he may not actually know what he is talking about. A small minority of people are on to him, the majority of people see him as some sort of GAA celebrity expert and boy does Brolly know how to appeal to the masses.

Brolly's columns are all about him. I was invited to this GAA dinner... I was chatting to the President... I was having a pint with the Dublin team... I went to see Mayo train (the only person allowed in)... It took me 3 hours getting out of Croke Park because so many people wanted selfies with me... He's an attention-seeking dick.

I love the irony of someone giving enough of a f**k  to tell people that they shouldn't give a f**k. Have you nothing better to be at Walter?

I think you might be able to work out why Colm Cooper has become a great fella after you read this:

He hasn't suddenly become a great fella. Brolly has been consistently praising Cooper's ability while also claiming he's not a big game player for years.

I disagree with his assessment but that's besides the point.
