Bad news is he will get more air time as there is no ad break.  :-[

I think that's when they go down to the on-field analyst, taking on the side-line for 2 mins...hopefully.

That’s BBCNI’s coverage fecked then.

Oisin and Marty Clarke are very good pundits and very easy to listen to. All we need now is thon bollix in to feckin’ ruin it.
Would agree Oisín and Marty both top drawer, Joe would need to be on his game to
Match them in terms of knowledge of the modern game.

To be honest, I couldn’t care less about Brolly’s knowledge of the modern game. I just don’t want to see him or listen to him. Especially on a show that already has two very good pundits. He’ll take over the show and make it all about him.
I've been watching Oisin in his role as manager of Inniskeen (v Ballybay), he's a man on fire constantly, sidelines don't exist in Oisin's world.
Do you think he would allow Brolly to make it all about him?
I agree though, the balance was already perfect at BBC NI with the triangle of cheerful chappy presenter Sidebottom, Oisin and Marty

I’ve seen many pundits on TSG interrupted, flustered, lose concentration when Brolly is chirping in their ear, while they try to analyse or speak their opinion. A few has resorted to telling Brolly to more or less shut up. There’s only so much a pundit can do on screen when faced with an ignoramus like Brolly. He’s just an ignorant hoor. Putting his hands across people, talking over them and telling everyone about his ideas for new rules/championship format etc. It becomes all about him.

Oisin and Marty Clarke give each other the time and have manners to listen when the other is speaking. They both put their points across very well, and are very informative. There is no egos. I enjoy listening to them, and Sidey keeps the talk and banter going.

If the BBC take thon Brolly bollix into the show, they will absolutely ruin it.

Agree with everything you've said there. Pat Spillane put his hand on Joe's leg, as you would to shut the hoor up and try to get a point across and Joe took a strop asking Pat to 'stop touching me'. He had no authority to speak about touching people. I watched a few matches on BBC and I found McConville in particular to be a very good analyst when he was on.

I think Oisin could be at the top of the queue to succeed Banty, if he had that ambition.

That is, after shooting Banty first.

Is he living in Mayo?

Back and forth

His woman is from Ballina and ironically a distant cousin of Joe Biden. You will notice his Tweets have been anti-Trump. He's looking for a visit to the White House on Pats Day!

Joe doesn't strike me as a person who would follow party discipline.

Is this so, is he not just a cousin to a Mayo cousin of Joe Biden?  or is it normal in Mayo to have a fling with a cousin?
