Anyone hear Joe on Off the Ball with Paul Kimmage earlier today?
Jesus, whatever about the telly stuff, he should never be let near a radio interview again.
He started off by cursing profusely, then when he was taken to task he said everyone curses so what difference does it make (bear in mind this is Sunday lunch-time radio).
Then he proceeded to talk over everyone else and stifle any sort of reasonable discussion.
I turned it off after about 5 minutes.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Apart from the cursing and the talking over everyone...I'd say his biggest problem is saying live on air that Roy Keane has "deep seeded psychological issues". Can't wait to see that row!

I'm sure Roy Keane couldn't give two shites what Joe Brolly says about him.
That was never a square ball!!

Probably not but I'd love to be a fly on the wall if he ever meets him.......assuming Roy knows who the wee Bollox is!

Joe has very accurately described himself there.

If he doesn't, I am sure Joe will tell him quick enough.

I am Joe's complete lack of awareness.

It's not just a case of the pot calling the kettle black - I'd say it's almost a case of the kettle calling another kettle a kettle.

Anyone know if Joe's been back on RTE Radio since he had the row with Des Cahill during the summer?

I have to say, he made a lot of sense on Newstalk last night regarding fixtures and the sustainability, and some might say the morality, of the current model for inter-county football.
Worth a listen.

Just listened to it there now.

The man is one the money. The power brokers have a different agenda to the 95% of the the GAA population.
