SKY needs to be kicked into touch.

Why??

GAA games shouldn't be behind an exclusive pay wall

What about the Monaghan Laois game at the weekend - it was behind an exclusive pay wall and wasn't on Sky?

An awful lot of  games are played behind walls and you have to play to get in to see them ;D.

Good to see Dublin finally getting pulled about having a blanket defence. They've been using it for a while.

Ive been saying it for a while. Whelan still putting a spin on it.

‘The Hurling Game’,  RTE2 every Sunday 9.30 to 10.30.

Followed by ‘The Graveyard Slot’: a round-up of that other GAA sport played by the majority.

‘The Graveyard Slot’ comprises of everyone talking up the new challengers even though we know they're all shite. And playing down Dublin!

Just watched the coverage from the Dublin v Donegal game. I wonder what Lee Keegan would be like as a pundit?  We didn’t find out yesterday as he couldn’t get a word in with Brolly there to make everyone’s point for them.

Judging by the spectacle of games these days, all games should be put behind a pay wall to stop us suffering watching the feckin' thing!

Holy sweet fcuk will someone, somewhere do something about Spillane. He genuinely sounds like a stuck music track. He just spurts out buzzwords like intensity, drive, hunger, speed whilst banging his fist into his other hand. He makes no valid attempts at analysis and is so far past his sell by date you would feel bad putting him out on the discount shelf in ASDA.

Once again Canavan, McGuiness et al blew RTE totally out of orbit with their analysis. The alternative camera angles, long distance full pitch shots analysed by Canavan really give you a feeling of being at the game and seeing things you would normally miss on TV.

People are fooling themselves if they think Sky’s lads are much better. Michael Meehan has been very good.

Agree 100%, as for Pat he is just there to collect a check, the clichés are just way way too old at this stage.
