I think it's funny the interviewer thought he said 'the bait' instead of 'debate'.

I noticed that myself  ;D ;D

Joe said that cooper was a good player but maybe did not show leadership at times it was need? give or take thats what he said. I presume thats as he sees it as a pundit. Is he not entitled to the view? I would have thought myself that in recent years for both Crokes and Kerry that was the case. But if reviewing Gooch's overall contribution to gaelic football I'd say he was at times sublime and one of the best forwards to grace the game. It's all a matter of opinion, innit.

If you're trying to say you don't take Joe too seriously, say that and nothing else.
This sounds to me like Joe got to him a bit.

This is the problem...Joe makes a controversial and often personal comment about someone and if the person attempts to defend himself or make any form of public rebuttal, people start going on about the person biting or how Joe has got under their skin. He's done a good job at making himself virtually bullet proof has oul Joe.

The secret is... don't bother.
He's just provided Joe with new material.

Exactly, so Joe realises that the platforms he has created for himself and his high profile means that he can say whatever he wants without fear of rebuke. Its a bullying nature and is accepted without question where Joe is concerned.. People side with the bully or don't question him so he doesn't turn on them, keep the head down, say nothing and he'll move on to someone else.

He's got pretty much nothing but abuse over his Cooper comments.

The more abuse Joe gets the more he loves it as it keeps him relevant. Joe knows rightly that Cooper was the best ever forward but what attention would Joe get if he just agreed with that. He also loves to hail "positive" football by saying Dublin play with "adventure". Yeah right Joe, show me a team without the talent Dublin have and let me see them play with "adventure". Again Joe knows the reality but reality doesnt add to his profile. He is a talented crafter of an argument and manages to convince many as a result but lets face it we all know ge talks utter sh*te. Hes an entertainer not an analyst and should not be taken seriously.
