I think a bit like Al Capone they were looking to pin something on him and decided on critisising David Gough in the end.

Most people put the kettle on, go to the bathroom etc as soon as the half time whistle goes then maybe tune back in again 5 minutes before the match starts again but when Joe is on it becomes a bit like the Jerry Springer show, basically he says something outrageous and the hypothetical audience boo e.g. Sean Cavanagh is not a man, really could have been that sort of cynical foul which cost Monaghan the game should have a greater punishment than a yellow card.  I don't think the Sunday Game needs the hyperbole.  If they could put 1 of these electric shock things on him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hOOGWLshtE he would be grand.  A gentle shock to the arm when it looks like he about to talk over someone half way through their point.  One to the b@llocks when he has taken his 100th dig at Mickey Harte during half time of the Sligo Leitrim match.

1) Criticising a referee should not be allowed by pundits. It just encourages the stupid on the football field to have a go too (especially junior level). It is okay to say that in their opinion a ref got a decision wrong (they're human), but that should be the end of it.f

2) It's a sad day when the mob decide that a pundit is no longer required

3) It's an even sadder day when pundits tell you what you just saw, are dull as dishwater and side step controversy

Joe brollyís work re organ donation is outstanding and his high profile and controversial persona has been an important factor in this.
There are elements of his personality and behaviour which are extremely interesting to watch and analyse.
Heís extremely articulate and his day job equips him to put across any argument well, but
As an up to date, cutting edge analyst heís nowhere near the likes of Mcconville and Canavan.
He appears to lack insight, respect and humility which has apparently led to an uncomfortable working relationship with Joanne Cantwell. Rte have perhaps taken the view that it would be much easier to replace Brolly than Cantwell. His previous comments re Skyís Rachel and attitude towards Joanne have no doubt spooked RTE. Ridiculing the likes of Cavanagh ,  Mayo, McIvor , Gough ( the list goes on) caused genuine upset and presumably RTE had enough of him using his media profile to make personalised comments about amateur sportspeople -and he was warned before.
I would wish him well in all the good work he does but I wonít miss his analysis , disrespectful behaviour and hurtful comments.

In Brolly's case he decided his own fate. Read back on my post from page 340 of this thread.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

He certainly wasnít missed in our house! Any time Brolly was there, the sound would have more often than not, been muted.

That tells me more about you than it does about Joe Brolly.
You are the weakest link. Goodbye

Judging by comments on here, the majority are glad to see the back of Brolly, as heís made TSG unbearable in recent years. So itís not just me.

I wouldnt look into that too much, people often jump on the band wagon, especially on this. Brolly will be back im sure.

Should we just delete this thread now that Joe is no longer relevant?

Pathetic! Grow up and wise up. His crime; to give an actual opinion on something? Come on lads. Let it go.

Would Sky consider taking him onboard if he toned it down a bit?
