Ooohhh he has an opinion that isn't mainstream.

Ooohhhh he's edgy

Ooohhh he's not afraid to speak his mind.

Blah blah blah. The same shite people spout about Joe Rogan or Barstool Sports.

That's the reasoning people don't like him. Nothing to do with being a twat  ::)
.
Jeepers calm down big lad. Not overly fussed either way on him as its not really that important in bigger scheme of things. He has 53k followers on Twitter so somebody likes him at least a wee bit

I enjoy the podcasts and while I doubt myself and Colm would ever be best pals if we knew each other he does an alright job. Better than OTB by a mile anyway. Iíve no reason to think this was intentional.

As for Eddie being critical of the county board, whatís the big deal, weíve all said the same thing probably and you know what he said is in part true of a lot of county boards. Things in Meath have gotten better in recent years but there where times when our county board made the 3 stooges look like Mensa.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

GAA Hour host Parkinson issues apology to Eddie Brennan and Laois GAA

Colm Parkinson has issued an apology to Eddie Brennan and Laois GAA over the 'off the record conversation' that found its way onto the airwaves earlier this week.

Laois hurling manager Eddie Brennan had been a guest on the GAA Hour podcast on Joe.ie with host Colm Parkinson but an off the record chat accidentally found its way onto the podcast.

It was deleted in the aftermath but the conversation spread like wildfire on Whats App where Brennan was critical of the County Board.


Speaking on his podcast this evening, Parkinson, a former Laois and Portlaoise Gaelic footballer, added;

"I want to apologise publicly to Eddie Brennan.


ďI have apologised to him many times in private since the show made that terrible mistake on Monday.

ďI have done hundreds of interviews on the show over the last four and a half years and nothing like that has ever happened before.

ďManagers and players know that when they come on the show they will be treated with respect and that didnít happen on Monday and we have to take responsibility for that.

ďI also want to apologise to the Laois County Board. The idea that Laois GAA has been put in the spotlight all this week because of a mistake made on my show makes me sick to my stomach if Iím being honest.

ďEddie Brennan is a brilliant manager and he is clearly a playerís manager and Laois GAA are very, very lucky to have him.Ē

Parkinson is not a sound engineer he's a podcaster and public health expert. Ridiculous he's getting the flak for this error.

Podcaster?
He calls himself presenter/producer & researcher.

Deserves everything coming his way.

Public health expert  ;D

Why does he deserve everything coming his way? Because he annoys you a bit or because someone leaked that to the public? I don't get the hate about him. He's a bit of a tube but he seems good enough craic on the show and doesn't take himself too serious either. The GAA hour is by far the best GAA podcast going. There's plenty of podcasters like that I don't like so I don't listen anymore.
probably because heís not on the Covid mass lockdown side . The hurling show is very good I enjoy Carroll and cheddar and nice to hear some opinions from the smaller counties.

 ;D ;D

You think people dont like him because he isnt on Covid mass lockdown side?!?!

You can see many comments here and none refer to Covid.

Itís amazing how people get so worked up and annoyed about someone or something they can easily ignored. Donít like him donít follow or listen to his podcast. It really is that simple ya know?

I'm not worked up about him in the slightest, I don't listen to him and I don't follow him on social media. I just think he's a gobshite.

I'm laughing at the way people throw out the allegation that someone is disliked for the mere crime of thinking outside the mainstream or speaking their mind rather than it simply being because someone's an arsehole. Loads of gobshites speak their minds and have edgy opinions. That doesn't in itself prevent them from being arseholes. Ironically, the sort of brain dead moron who thinks it does tends to be someone completely incapable of thinking for themselves.

Eddie Brennan has resigned as Laois manager.

His position was untenable after Parkinson's crew's hatchet job.

Best hurling manager Laois have had in a long time imo, dreadful way for him to leave really after that nonsense with the podcast. Laois lose will be someone else's gain and if he could get that level of performance out of Laois imagine if he took over the Dubs.

Im no real fan of Parkinson but his podcast was generally pretty decent to be fair to him, the cynic in me thinks they may have done it to boost listenership as it is a bit convenient that something like this has never happened before but now when it does happen it is something as controversial as this that gets released. It did go viral get publicity which is the Joe.ie  business model where clicks are currency. But we can only take his word for it.

Did Joe.ie (or sports joe) even mention that he had left? Surely notable for a sports 'news' organisation

Was it a resignation, as 2 years had finished?
I listened to a podcast interview between Brennan and Parkinson  the other day and I didn't get that vibe between them.
