When you think of the money RTE spend on showing Champions League games where nobody has any affiliation to the teams involved (Fenerbahce v Basel or the likes), this will cost peanuts for them.

Hopefully it’s a change in direction for soccer and rugby-obsessed RTE.

What rugby do RTE show?

RTE is and always will be a GAA station. Shows more GAA than rugby and soccer combined.

This cannot be a surprise. The punishment these lads take, they have to be taking painkillers just to turn around and play the next week.
It is all about money . So is concussion

That is professional sport.
Maybe rugby shouldn't be professional, Dinny.
Being a gym bunny is one thing when the sport is based on avoiding people .
Rugby is all about attrition and bodies aren't designed for professional attrition.

At least being professional means being accountable, unlike the GAA they treat concussion and player burn-out seriously..
What sort of compensation fund have the IRFU got for concussion at this stage ?
Professional does not mean accountable. Shur look at American football.

Why would they need compensation? Is there a litany of reports showing concussions causing premature death or health issues? Sensationalist!

I have a pair of Sony MDR-Mx1000s and they're great. The newer versions are even better. Pricy, but worth it.

Not for the gym or running or anything though.

Same as - love mine..

Btw I say if you did a quick poll of the serious footballers such as AZ or BC1 I would be surprised if they've never taken pain killing pills or injection to play an important match..

Looking forward to tonights game for a change, Sunday was a massive confidence booster. Great to see some passion back in the side. Jose will have united fired up and if they get an early goal we might struggle to break them down. I'll take a draw but that would be disappointing on current form of both sides.

Bit of a bogey ground so a draw would be a very good result.

Our team is full of b**tards now and it's great. Torreira, the humble Latin b**tard, alongside Xhaka, the handsome b**tard. Sokratis the hard man b**tard, Guendouzi the young b**tard, and of course Lichtsteiner, the b**tard's b**tard. I love them all

Missed Arsenal's b**tard side, good to have it back.

What are your thoughts on Ramsey?

I'm a big fan. Things seem to happen when he's on the field. But lads more knowledgeable than me on the matter detest him.

Brilliant today but often slows things down and over complicates stuff. I'd love to keep him but not on crazy money he looking for.

+1

Haven't an enjoyed an Arsenal match as much in years. Attitude is everything and the players had it in abundance today. Emery is looking like an astute appointment so far. Love his tactical switches.

Did I hear correctly that Clifford is gone for the league? Some type of op?

That's what you get throwing a young lad in at the deep end early. He'll be finished as a player at 27.

The rule on the under 20's is the wrong way around. Under 20's should not be allowed to play senior.

The GAA haven't a clue how to manage players. From young lads playing u16 and minor in the Summer and u15 and u17 in the Winter to u20s playing club, Sigerson and County in 12 months.. I had to pull my 10 year old daughter from Camoige as they are training through the winter, she will return in April. Lip service...

The Special one has signed for the Special club. Let the fun begin.

He's not special any more.

Amen

Niall Kelly has gone but there's a good chance Dan Flynn will be around for a while yet.
Feck, hadn't heard about Kelly. Just giving it up or is he leaving the country?

Back for the championship, 6 months traveling. A deserved break for Niall.
