I presume they want to show entertaining games  ;)
Not 45 throws followed by 55 more and so on and on and on....

Perhaps I'm biased because Mayo actually won the bloody league, but I thought the football league final entertainment far exceeded the hurling counterpart.

Who cares about the league. Seriously your at the bottom of the barrel when the league is used to make a point. Most people have already forgotten Mayo won it.

That's fair enough, but it's the 'top 8' teams. Hurling championship consists of the top 10 teams. I know 99% of people don't give one iota about the league, but the fact the two games were on the same day,  I expected better from the hurling if I'm honest.

Fair play to BBC.

Wha? The coverage is an embarrassment and anyone with a backbone who works there should resign in protest at there piss poor GAA coverage. This is a corporation that sends that ballbag Stephen Watson all over the world to follow any half successful OWC sportsperson, but can't cover the largest sport in the North.
Sidebottom, Niblock and Kane should show a bit of steel.

Would you prefer two minute highlights of these games on the Sunday Game with Joe Brolly talking shite?  All I care about is live or full deferred coverage of these games and BBC have stepped up in the regard,

I prefer in depth live coverage. What the sport is deserving off. There's a direct link between TV stations showing free to air sport and participation.
They should get off their arses, bid for the rights and show the whole f**king Ulster championship. Football and Hurling.
I really expect more from those who work there an "allegedly" support GAA. Time they shit or got off the poe.

Armagh v Tyrone would indeed be very much deferred. They are more likely to show Down v Armagh.

Standard in hurling is way down. Last 2 All Ireland winners fell over the line despite doing their best to lose it. The great KK team that was around for about a decade and the Tipp and Cork teams that put it up to them would have hammered Galway and Limerick. But so many teams at a similar level makes it exciting. Plus, the opposite of football, the media analysts love hurling and donít let the viewers forget it.

40 wides in the All Ireland final last year. 40! Bar Galway waking up in injury time, the standard of play in the second half in particular was awful. Horrendous. Turnover after turnover. Wide after wide.

Yet we were told it was a magnificent final.

Watch a football game on RT… and the analysis points out every mistake that was made!

BBC Sport NI will have live TV coverage of six matches in this year's Ulster Senior Football Championship as well as broadcasting deferred highlights of the other two fixtures.


There will also be live commentary of every game on BBC Radio Ulster and comprehensive previews, match reports and analysis on the BBC Sport NI website and digital channels.


The TV coverage starts with a double-header on 1 November that begins with Donegal v Tyrone at Ballybofey followed by Derry v Armagh at Celtic Park.

Highlights of Monaghan's preliminary round match against Cavan will be shown between the two live games.

Mark Sidebottom will present the television programming and will be joined by All-Ireland winners Oisin McConville and Peter Canavan.

Donegal's Martin McHugh, who lifted the Sam Maguire in 1992, will also provide analysis, as will former All-Star and All-Ireland finalist Martin Clarke.

Thomas Niblock will be on commentary with Thomas Kane providing live updates from the sideline.

Award winning broadcaster, Tessa Fleming, who has won club Championships in Meath, Louth and Monaghan, joins the team for the first time and will be interviewing the players and managers before and after the matches.
◾Bonner prepared for unique GAA autumn
◾Clones will not stage final because of absence of floodlights
◾Test your knowledge of Ulster SFC finals

The coverage continues on 7 November with the game between Antrim and Cavan/Monaghan followed by the quarter-final match between Fermanagh and Down on 8 November.

BBC Sport NI will broadcast highlights of the first semi-final on 14 November before screening the second semi-final live on 15 November.

The TV coverage concludes with the Ulster Senior Football Championship Final on Sunday 22 November.

On radio, Orla Bannon will present BBC Radio Ulster's programming which will include live commentary of every game in the Ulster Championship starting with Monaghan's preliminary round tie with Cavan.

As well as commentary in English, Irish language commentary will also be available for a number of games via the BBC Sport NI website.

Neil Brittain, Executive Editor BBC Sport NI, said: "We know that the 2020 Ulster Senior Football Championship is going to be very different than any that have gone before.

"Restrictions on crowd numbers and the condensed schedule mean that there is an added responsibility on partner broadcasters to show matches to as many people as possible.

"I am therefore pleased that BBC Sport NI is able to screen six games live as well as broadcasting two deferred matches this year and I would like to thank the GAA and RT… for their co-operation in facilitating this coverage.

"We know that the Championship is important to so many people and I hope that by broadcasting these games we can help give people something to cheer about at this time."

The coverage by RTE on the div 2 hurling final between Kerry and Antrim on Sunday night was the worst example of elitism I've ever seen by RTE, there can be no excuses given has to why the poorest of coverage was given to this game considering it was recorded..

If this had have been a div 2 football final and got the same amount of coverage (I doubt that would have happened ) there would have been a lot of complaints
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)
