Oisin McConville and Marry Clarke were consistently excellent on the BBC coverage. Mark Sidebottom is also a far better presenter than commentator.

Especially when he does things like fist-bumping the two pundits  ;D

A bit unorthodox is aul Sidey, but he’s a decent scud. The show wouldn’t be the same if he wasn’t there. He bounces well off Oisin and Marty.
Those trio are the deal, BBCNI trumps all.

If the game happened to be on all three channels I'd probably go Sky (providing Clerkin isn't on co-comm), then BBC and then I'd probably listen on the radio before watching RTE (slight sarcasm).

Don’t have Sky, so first choice is BBC. Far better pundits, analysis and no bitching or someone talking bollix or trying to steal the show.

RTE only if not on BBC. If it’s Ger Canning on commentary, I mute it, and put on radio commentary. If that’s not available, I watch it on mute. I would rarely watch RTE half time analysis, too many egos and bullshit.

Losing faith with RTE myself, Brolly becoming very hard to listen to. Dick Clerkin is awful on Sky and the Senan Connell role always seems a bit superfluous to me, he must be there for eye candy for the ladies or something.

Brolly is impossible to listen to. RTE need a big clearout.

Yeah, Senan Connell, could never figure that one out myself.

Senan Connell spent much of the pre-match from Hyde park last week telling us that the 45metre line in the hyde was nearer the goal than  the 45 in croke park! ::)

Maybe the groundman in croke park has bigger steps!  :P

So Colm how can Meath win today.

Colm O’Rourke all in the same sentence: “Keeper needs to just kick it out long and let the lads fight for it” and “we don’t have any high fielders midfield”
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

I enjoyed the look on McManus's face when the two dinosaurs said goalkeepers just need to kick the ball out and not bother with short kickouts. He glanced at them as if they'd just suggested Neil Armstrong had never been to the moon.

Difference between McConville and Dolan on co-commentary is night and day.

We can’t have it all unfortunately. Marty just talks too much.

You may think that about Senan, but that’s actually one of his smarter comments, that’s why he kept repeating it. Senan acts out the stage Dub role with an insane joviality. 
Someone in Sky loves him.

I don’t know if it’s psychological or not but i genuinely feel like I get more stupid the longer I listen to Dessie Dolan.
That was never a square ball!!
