As the senior analyst, Colm should take a firm line with Joe and tell him to stop interrupting Tomás.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Joe still grabbing the headlines. Love him or loathe him, he's well able to get debate going.

OUTSPOKEN GAA pundit Joe Brolly has described Sky Sports' new GAA lineup as "TV3 plus Baywatch babe".


The Derry barrister has been highly critical of the GAA's deal with Sky in interviews and on social media since the partnership was announced describing it as being "a breach of principle".

"The core of the GAA has always been that it is of the people, by the people, for the people. But as each new line is crossed, it becomes more difficult for us to feel that we are all in it together," he wrote in his column in Gaelic Life last week.

"The justifications for the SKY deal, that it increases the audience and encourages global participation, are fallacies."

Last night, the 1993 All-Ireland winner had another go at the Sky arrangement and a dig at their new anchor, Sky Sports News' Rachel Wyse.

He tweeted: "SKY = TV3 plus Baywatch babe".

His tweet, which has not been deleted, garnered some negative backlash on Twitter.

That's totally inappropriate. He's making himself look like an idiot.

Rachel Wyse could tweet back that RTEs panel is a bunch of old, hackneyed, publicity whores - without the baywatch babe.

He'd have loved that.

I hope she does tweet back.

He really does feel he can say what he wants - his little barbed comments with a big smile are becoming nausiating and sexiset comments like would not be accepted in most public positions. The truth of the matter is that he would jump ship at the drop of a hat to join Sky. His ego is such that he would feel that he should be exposed to the wider UK audiences and he probably envisages himself on Soccer AM.
That was never a square ball!!

The primary difference between male and female TV presenters is that female TV presenters have to be good looking.
That's hardly her fault.
She has a competitive sports background, is Irish, works for Sky and seems like an intelligent woman.
Brolly has let himself down badly with that comment.

He has continually let himself down for quite a while now. In his head he's funny and he's smarter than everyone else so he can say what he likes.
