Bar the odd bit of nonsense (Cooper didnt pull Clifford back) I definitely think he is worth having on the panel.

If RTE balls about they will lose him - there is no doubt he makes more people tune in that tune out.

Not a notion that's true at this stage, RTE have surely realised by now that people will watch their GAA coverage from sheer force of habit regardless of what the standard of it is.
Brolly getting the heave would do nothing but vastly improve their live match coverage and analysis.

Totally agree. At least the others can say what they want without him cutting in and talking over them.

If I spot Brolly on TSG, itís ďah for f**ks sakeĒ, and I usually mute it all. Yes, thereís other analysts who have their faults, but none of them make me turn off completely.

Yeah I wouldn't listen to it. I did on the all ireland final and it was ridiculous. Doesn't know what a foul is and questions the referee's integrity on the back of it. That after questioning Cavanagh years ago and I'm sure he's done more with the likes of McGeeney and maybe more. If he's gone good riddance but I'd be surprised if this is the last of him even if what is said here is true.

Well, I watched the AI final analysis only because it was the biggest game of the year. He ruined the whole experience, as the occasion was a wonderful spectre of Irish sport and culture, plus it was a great game. But he tainted the day for many Iíd say.

But as you say, I doubt this is the last of him. I think RTE are just taking the heat out of the situation following his behaviour in the drawn match. Like Ant (Decís mate), heíll be back next season when all has settled down, unfortunately.

Bowseywosey - gender pure and simple, awful awful host.
Didn't think it would take so little to prove my point, but there you go!  ;D ;D

Mediocrity knows no gender discrimination, but Allah forbid any aspiring sports journalist that doesn't have their own penis.

Proved what, I am stating facts same as Fiona Bruce getting question time pure awful but fits the modern narrative.

No you're not - you're pulling a slighted grievance out of your arse. For something to be "fact" you have to provide evidence. Unless you're David Brent.
So who then should have taken over Michael Lyster fulltime for the Sunday Game anchor gig, if not Ms. Cantwell?

The new RTE Guy Bennett seems to want more emphasis on analysis
Sky were light years ahead in this respect.
But bringing guys like Rochford in - a modern coach, who knows the game and tactics is so much more insightful than watching and listening to the same old tired rubbish from Brolly.

Ah Benny. Seriously?
He tainted the day for many Id say? He ruined the whole experience?

Jesus - he only gave a bit of analysis for a few minutes.

As they say in Tyrone. Donít worry be happy..  8)
moral of the story donít give young Gough any auld Guff..RTE are ruthless hoors and will take you down..if he needs any advice contact Mi....
To be fair heís enough to be getting his teeth into with Rory Gallagher and the Donegal /Tyrone plantation into Derry football..
Despite it all The world would be less soluble without Joes input..the craic outweighs the negatives..

His dig at Gough was personalised just like Cavanagh etc. Like someone else said I've no doubt he'll be back on there. His dig at Gough was made considerably worse by the fact that the cause of the dig was that he couldn't even recognise a blatant foul.

He's gone from RTE for good apparently.

I for one wouldnt be happy at his exit from rte broadcasting.  I certainly dont always agree with what he says and of course he goes to far on occasion, but you know what, I'm drawn to hear his ramblings.  I get the Gaelic Life most weeks and the first article i want to read is his.  You cant say that about many other pundits.

Anyway, i'm sure he will land on his feet.
