Don't forget his Tyrone love in during 03-08.
Yep. Worth retelling this. In the Ulster SFC first round tie vs. Derry in 2003 which ended in a draw, Br***y went to town on RTÉ after the match over Tyrone's performance and how they'll never win an All-Ireland etc. etc. Well as the replay was being held in Casement Park six days later, a few minutes before the team coach pulled into the ground, the telly at the front was switched on, the sound turned up, the play button pressed on the video player, and up came on the screen & speakers a clip of that diatribe from the previous weekend. That Tyrone team hammered seven shades of sh*te out of Derry in the replay, word got to back to Br***y about that clip played on the coach, and it ended up making sure he STFU concerning Tyrone for the rest of the decade other than trying to crawl up Mickey Harte's arse several times in public.  8)

Didn’t hear that before, but I do recall that there was a tragic death close to the Derry camp and match was asked to be postponed. Heard it on good authority that a lot of the team were affected and that was a major factor in their below par performance.

Fionntamhnach's own Red and White tinted glasses wouldn't let facts get in the way of a complete lie, and he laments about Brolly, Jesus wept.

I was watching a YT clip of Dennis Skinner's (MP Bolsover) greatest hits - controversial contributions in session at  Westminister parliament. Whenever the caustic Dennis breached procedure (calling David Cameron "Dodgy Dave") the speaker would call on him to either retract or leave the house, invariably after a short statement of protest Dennis would leave the house in a dignified fashion.

Could we not have the same rules apply to the rte panel? whenever Joe would breach protocol, Joanne in a firm and resolute manner would call on him to depart the studio.

Better to not let him in in the first place.

Joe Brolly has a hard on for himself that is hard to fathom. It has become his undoing. He believed in his own hype. Off he goes to the bullshit circuit with Rory's Stories and Kieran Donaghy.

Was that the time when he was half cut on camera at Casement Park?

I don't deal with "alternative facts" and I've a low tolerance for bullsh*tters no matter where in the world they are. Also you haven't said yet whom you thought should have taken up Michael Lyster's job either. 😉

For everyone else, the story of the clip being played on the coach was confirmed to me through both a player on the squad and also a member of the backroom team at the time. The bereavement mentioned by BennyCake likely proved to be a factor for that game, but is a separate incident in itself.

OK, I had a rule to myself to keep away from talking about the arsehole this thread is dedicated to for several years now (with one exception) and now he's been finally let go from RTÉ with many others here also sharing my view, I'm going to take that vow again. Because for narcissistic attention seekers, the worst thing is not being talked about by others. 🙊

Paddy Bradley had a great game the first day and carried what was a very limited Derry outfit. Roasted Mickey McGee. A certain Dromore man got the nob the 2nd day and Bradley never got a kick. Derry were well beaten.

I don't remember the draw. Where was it played. Did the minor match go to a draw also, as from memory that was postponed that day, or is my memory just sketchy?

The one thing i do remember about that day in Casement was Tyrone's diving. It was the first time we seen it in action and they won an All-Ireland doing it that year.

Funny I remember Bradley whinging and yapping the whole match at the referee and Mickey Moran. We never saw much of him or Derry the rest of the year.

A team with 5 all stars 'very limited' (Lockhart, McCloy, Muldoon, Tohill and Bradley), plus the likes of Fergal Doherty, Paul McFlynn, Niall McCusker and Kevin McGuckin. Ha I would love a Derry team this limited today. No doubt they were poor the second day but this was a very good Derry team.

Anthony Tohill was 43 years of age that day ffs. Lockhart and McGuckin good players. The rest very limited one dimensional footballers.

EDIT: Sorry, I love winding youse up but Enda Muldoon was a baller and could play in any team in any era. Even I would have to admit that wind up or not.
