I usually mute all interviews/punditry until the match starts. I just can't listen to all the tripe and shite talking

I can't even stand most of the commentary on matches, especially Ger Canning. The sooner there's a 'no commentary' option on matches, the better.

RTE have reported that the microphone used by the outside broadcast unit to catch the crowd noise at sports events is broken.
In order that the sports viewing public will not be inconvenienced, RTE have decided on an active course of progressive efficiency and will now used canned crowd noise in future.  Not just canned crowd noise but genuine crowd noise recorded on cassette tapes from the attendance at each county ground.
 How will this work?
when Dublin play somewhere outside the pale, the commentator will have a cassette player on hand, when the Dubs score he will press the play button and loud genuine Heffo's Army grunts of delight will be heard in the background by viewers.
 
RTE sports will also employ special sound effects, e.g. when the Dubs have a free awarded against them, the commentator will press another button and the viewers will hear loud boos as the free taker embarks on his run up to kick the ball, not ordinary boos but genuine authentic Hill 16 boos recorded one All Ireland day. 
When Tyrone players walk off the pitch after a defeat, the commentator will  place 2 or 3  small stones in an empty vessel and give it a good rattle.

Watching League Sunday and wondering how is Pat Spillane still getting a gig. Marty Clarke young and fresh. To top it off went to add break with Justin Timberlake playing as a complete contrast to the old tired cliched Kerry lad. I know Lyster still there but he retiring.

Brushed over the Moran incident but its a different story on social media with many calling for a 3 month ban similar to Connolly last year. Very similar incidents except maybe more contact today - today's issue was dealt with on the field with a black while Connolly's wasn't. This one could grow legs.....

I'm just wondering what the over-under is on the number of times Clarke mentions he was in Australia, because it seems like it's going to be quite high.

I know. The contrast in ages was very stark. Maybe it was the shiny & overly coiffed birds nest on top of MC's head, that stood out so much, in contrast to Spillane's grey head, that made me think of what an old, out dated geezer PS is. ( I'm not normally so shallow.  :P ) But the age gap was very apparent. Am not being deliberatley age-ist, but if Spillane's so called analysis wasn't as woeful as it is, we wouldn't have such a problem with the age contrast. It is, so we do.

If ever a man needed a championship haircut.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Just to go back to our conversation of a month ago or so - TG4 showing 7, count em, 7 live games this weekend. How are they managing to do this? Fair play to them. Hand it all over to them I say.

I wish RTE would just get off their arses and do it. The Irish language stuff is still a massive bore on TG4 and severely limits the audience too. Benefits no one.

It benefits everyone who wants to see the games but can't/won't attend.
RTE have never shown any interest in the league, so give credit to TG4 - without them you wouldn't see any of those games.

I'm glad they're doing it, but literally any other FTA station would benefit the viewer and the GAA more to be doing it.

Can you just stop being an an anti Irish arsehole for 1 fkn day.
Fair play to TG4 and anyone schooled in the 26 Cos should be well able to grasp the commentary.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.
