General discussion / Re: Stephen Nolan's 500k BBC Salary last year!

Furore.This might mean he'll be on sick leave for a week or two!
A number of Christmases ago there was a major issue following a thaw after a freezing cold spell. People were up in arms about the lack of action from the statutory agencies and Nolans telephone lines were red hot about it. He of course was on holiday. Come the 10.30 changeover Gerry Anderson remarked / Where's Nolan with all this going on?  Biggest show in the country?? Biggest bed in the country. Oh how we miss him

Sorry if this was answered before but is sky 5 available over in England?
Is it not in the GAA's interests to be promoting our game outside of Ireland as well.
A lot of ex pats would gladly pay to watch games live on sky I'd say.
I think that's the main goal with the Sky deal, or am I misunderstanding what you're asking?
A friend of mine mentioned a story about some West Indians who allegedly asked for a Sunday off work so that they could watch the 'Paddy Cricket'. Might be an urban myth but it would be great if it was true. Your previous post was hilarious by the way

Sky is shite for both viewing and for the promotion of the sport. Duffy sees the 11 million Euros a year they send over and wets himself with excitement and that's the only reason they are involved at all. The best hope to get rid of Sky is if they realise no one is watching and no one is buying their service for GAA coverage, it won't be a decision Duffy's "non-profit" Association will make themselves.

The sad part is so much of that money goes into warping the competitiveness of the championship and given it papers over the obvious cracks in declining viewership and attendance, it can hardly be seen as a net positive for the GAA.

The GAA looks like it needs a calamity to happen before real change will occur. And Dublin are well on the way to producing that.
As a matter of interest, what do you reckon Duffy is doing with the Sky money? I was of the opinion that this, along with all other income was reinvested in the organisation but perhaps I'm wrong and Duffy is maybe drinking it or something. Can you enlighten me please.

Right so how does one go about getting IPTV in?

I have an android box with Kodi installed although it Exodus and the likes don't seem to be working well at the minute.

You don't need Kodi for IPTV but it can be used with some. Most IPTVs I think run as an Android App, if you want I can PM you who I get my IPTV from.
PM me too please.

I understood it was a sell out. Can understand now why they were so pissed of the Celtic didn't take up their ticket allocation

Good luck with getting money from.Ryanair.More chance of Nelson Mc Causland being next Pope.
or Willie Frazer becoming next manager of Whitecross GFC. You're correct and I'm not going to bother pursuing anything.

looks fantastic , Pity they didnt do a mayo V cork , donegal V galway double header there next saturday .
Feck the begrudgers.

failing that why is donegal V Galway not in Castlebar?
Looks fantastic? Really?
 It's a modern built stadium that has a design about 70 years out of date.
The architect  on this project must spend most of his time designing 4 bedroom bungalows or something because there is absolutely  no imagination  gone into the design of this .
It's a pity as there are so many small stadiums around the world that are beautifully designed. This is just the same as what was there but with new seats and concrete.
Agree with you on that one. A design along the lines of the proposed Casement Park would have been much better creating a more enclosed atmospheric venue
