Some people on here take themselves way too seriously.

Lads, I can't be certain but I don't think Rachel reads this forum.

I don't think she'll have noticed your gallant efforts at saving her honour.

Is there a term for a group of male feminists?

Sure how would we know?

BBC use more female presenters to present actual sports coverage than Sky. Clare Balding, Hazel Irvine, Gabby Logan and Jill Douglas all regularly anchor live or highlights coverage of various sports.

Most comments are about Joe not Rachel. I found his comments on Sean Cavanagh and Paul Grimley equally inappropriate and unnecessary and believe me I have no gallant wish to save their honour.

Edit* I notice Joe is now suggesting that his comments were supposed to highlight the sexism at Sky Sports, another crusade for the bould Joe - he is such a feminist!

He's an attention seeking pain in the arse as a GAA pundit, and if he truly doesn't care about his analyst gig, then he's an even bigger tool about it that I thought, because that means he's just being controversial to wind people up, not to increase his profile. I don't believe it though. I think he loves the media profile.

That's one way to look at it. Another is that he's being true to himself and not being all happy clappy for the cameras.

Why do you think EVERY RTE GAA pundit has come out against the Sky deal in their various media outlets? Do all of them share the opinion that it's doing down the people who want to see the games live, even if RTE maintain their quota of games? I didn't realise they loved TV3 that much, even though a fair proportion of Ulster can't get TV3. My arse. It's because they are worried Sky will change the landscape, and they'll be put out to grass.

I haven't read what O'Rourke and Spillane have had to say on the matter, mainly because their columns don't interest me. I'm no doubt some are fighting RTE's battle to preserve their status but I firmly believe that's not Brolly's motivation.

On a different matter Parkinson fairly won that argument, there's a first for everything.

I have to say Rebecca Lowe does a nice job on NBC Sports coverage of the Premier League. Her cuteness is just a nice little added bonus early on a weekend morning! :)

Kinda missing the point, wouldn't you say?

The point, BTW, is that Brolly is a tosspot.

Has Joe's argument really now become that he is pointing out sexism at Sky by labelling its Gaa presenter as a baywatch babe?

As an aside, one of the scariest experiences of my life was attending the Camogie Inter-Varsities ball/dance/drinkathon as a young lad. Holy Jebus! It was like landing in a country where there had been no men, or drink, for decades.

I think they should invite Joe as a guest to the next one of these.
