I presume they want to show entertaining games  ;)
Not 45 throws followed by 55 more and so on and on and on....

Perhaps I'm biased because Mayo actually won the bloody league, but I thought the football league final entertainment far exceeded the hurling counterpart.

Who cares about the league. Seriously your at the bottom of the barrel when the league is used to make a point. Most people have already forgotten Mayo won it.

That's fair enough, but it's the 'top 8' teams. Hurling championship consists of the top 10 teams. I know 99% of people don't give one iota about the league, but the fact the two games were on the same day,  I expected better from the hurling if I'm honest.

Fair play to BBC.

Wha? The coverage is an embarrassment and anyone with a backbone who works there should resign in protest at there piss poor GAA coverage. This is a corporation that sends that ballbag Stephen Watson all over the world to follow any half successful OWC sportsperson, but can't cover the largest sport in the North.
Sidebottom, Niblock and Kane should show a bit of steel.

Would you prefer two minute highlights of these games on the Sunday Game with Joe Brolly talking shite?  All I care about is live or full deferred coverage of these games and BBC have stepped up in the regard,

I prefer in depth live coverage. What the sport is deserving off. There's a direct link between TV stations showing free to air sport and participation.
They should get off their arses, bid for the rights and show the whole f**king Ulster championship. Football and Hurling.
I really expect more from those who work there an "allegedly" support GAA. Time they shit or got off the poe.

Armagh v Tyrone would indeed be very much deferred. They are more likely to show Down v Armagh.

Standard in hurling is way down. Last 2 All Ireland winners fell over the line despite doing their best to lose it. The great KK team that was around for about a decade and the Tipp and Cork teams that put it up to them would have hammered Galway and Limerick. But so many teams at a similar level makes it exciting. Plus, the opposite of football, the media analysts love hurling and donít let the viewers forget it.

40 wides in the All Ireland final last year. 40! Bar Galway waking up in injury time, the standard of play in the second half in particular was awful. Horrendous. Turnover after turnover. Wide after wide.

Yet we were told it was a magnificent final.

Watch a football game on RT… and the analysis points out every mistake that was made!

That's because there's not much positive things to pick out in football!!!
