Spillane was out of his depth today with Rochford and McStay either side of him in the studio today.

He was the only one who called it right.

Kerryman backs Kerry.

Dessie v Dick, who would come out on top. I canít call it, both equally as bad as each other.

I'd take Dessie over Clerkin any day of the week. Clerkin is a useless gobshite.

Don't know if it was RTEs dodgy editing for the Sunday game but dessie said Tyrone had 7 shots from 9 attacks or something to that effect, when they had 0-8 in the board.

Or maybe it was last 9 attacks, didn't say 7 scores.  ;)

Final will probably be O'Rourke, Spillane and Brolly I presume?

They'll probably get the 'big gig'.  I wonder how this panel is decided anyway?

Start of Match of the Day last night - Shearer and Wright on it.  They always seem to get the big games also.

A good refurb of both shows would do no harm. 

I listened to the Marty Squad after game.  Bit of discussion of game from 'legends' of the game.  Personally I'd love a radio phone in show after games - national league and championship.   Be more interesting and enjoyed than listening to the legends of the game.

Can't remember the name of the show but we'd always be glued to Radio Eireann on the way back up the road after matches. First time I ever heard of George Him he was filling in on it and it prepared me for how much of a prat he was

Agree here, similar to talkSPORT after the soccer matches.  Sure, you would have some people ringing in who havent a clue but would make for good drivetime radio after the match

By the time Marty works out which Parish the caller is from, what the weather is like and if he can recall being there years ago, it really would be a long drawn out affair.

Nope that was during the game also. He said 7 scores from 8 shots when they had scored 0-8

Sean O"Shea using his great experience even though he's played senior football for about 2 years lol.  I think Dick Clerkin may even be a better co commentator than him.

Tomas O'Se had a good one about the Dubs third quarter performance on Saturday.

"They had 14 attacks, which ended up with 12 shots and 10 scores.
That's 90% efficiency and they were only at 55% in the first half!"

Donít understand the vitriol towards commentators. They have a difficult job having to quickly assimilate information in a pressurised situation and articulate it well, itís even more difficult for co-commentators who donít have a journalistic background and training.
In the studio, Some of the more experienced pundits and commentators at times sound out of touch with the modern game but in the main they all contribute positively to the experience . On the other hand, Joe brollyís personalised comments,  conduct and lack of respect to others especially towards Joanne Cantwell has no place in national TV in the modern era, itís increasingly embarrassing . Since he appears to have little self awareness or insight into his behaviour , the other pundits need to call him out rather than leaving it to Joanne , who appears isolated in trying to correct him. To use a political analogy , Much as I have issues re Sky lack of accessibility to all, and the minimal coverage of our games by the BBC , comparing RTEís Joe-centric puerile nonsense to the quality analysis of Mcconville, Clarke, Donaghy, Canavan,  Reminds me of comparing Jamie Bryson to Naomi Long . Naomiís intelligent measured and insightful analysis is too often drowned out by Jamie Brysonís populist , one-sided soundbites
