Brolly puts his real name to what he writes

A pity he wouldn't put real names to the stories he fabricates when he does a hatchet on individuals in the GAA.

Angelo you’re more obsessed with brolly than piers morgan is about meghan markle. I know meghan shot piers down once but what did brolly do to you that you’re taking it so personally?

Its a bit scary the anger/hatred some posters have for Brolly.

I watched his interview on OTB on youtube and enjoyed it. Agree totally with him in terms of shortening inter county season. Clearly doesn't take himself too serious and looking forward to seeing him on Eir

It's bizarre the way the Derry lads are rallying around Brolly after he has being outed as a self-obsessed, narcissistic hypocrite.

I don't take anything that Brolly did personally. I just judge him on his actions and words and they don't convey him as a very pleasant man.

But but but but he donated a kidney so that automatically excuses from anything he says and he’s supposedly only ‘playing a character’ on tv.

Personally I couldn't stand Brolly on the Sunday Game. He made it extremely difficult for other pundits to have their say, constantly cutting across them and interrupting the presenters as well. It made for very uncomfortable viewing. That's before you get into his bizarre spiteful rants against mcgeeney, Cavanagh, gough's red card decision and many others. RTE is better for his absence.

The likes of today's off the ball is fine where he can just talk away on his own without anyone challenging his nonsense.

Some people take him far too seriously. He is a contradictory figure who I find myself loving and hating in equal measures but you never really know what you are going to get from him. A TV studio with limited speaking time does not suit Brolly at all, I found him much more engaging and less irritable in a podcast/radio format where he can just bladder away freely. He doesn’t like being challenged and it is why the Sunday Game format increasingly did not suit him especially after Michael Lyster retired.

What happened Hugh Cahill on 2FM, thought he was a very good host of Game On on 2FM but he seems to have disappeared off the airwaves and the show hasn’t been the same since.

I was wondering that myself. Alan Cawley and Gary Murphy were good in the studio alongside him too. I don’t listen to it now at all since it’s new format. Gone to the dogs altogether.

The Joe man spoke a lot this week about the value of the GAA and the fun he had working for RTE. One thing he didn't do was make a single argument to rationalise why he should have been retained or to outline what he brings to "analysis" around games. It looks to me that RTE have decided that talking nonsense and relaying mostly fabricated and unrelated tales is no longer what they want to provide around games under the name of professional insight.

The SKY approach has shown RTE up and they finally realise that the typical GAA person is as interested in informed analysis as any other sports fan. That's a point Joe has still failed to grasp - no matter how entertainlingly he reasons otherwise.

Brolly a legend hes not afraid to speak his voice.

He's a good man to talk the talk but nowhere near man enough to walk it.

Really Bomber? Aside from the Eir Sports gig, have a wee think about that sentence in bold

Aside from Eir Sports?????

I thought this in particular was scandalous and just sums Brolly up - vindictive, spiteful and nasty. A man who will make up any old nonsense just to settle scores.

https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/sport/gaa/jamie-clarke-defends-relationship-with-kieran-mcgeeney-after-joe-brolly-criticism-738492.html

OK, we agree he can be all those things, vindictive, nasty and spiteful, as shown in the example above, but 'but nowhere near man enough to walk it'. The man gave one of his kidneys ffs.
The state of you Tyrone boys and Joe Brolly  ;D

So what?

It doesn't excuse some of the poisonous things he has completely fabricated in recent years to settle scores.

Yeah, covered under' vindictive'. You Tyrone boys are obsessed with Brolly

And a past act from Brolly does not excuse the nasty and spiteful jibes he has put forward over the past few years, many of which he has based on complete fabrications.

He is a nasty character.

Brolly is a very generous and benevolent person as shown by giving a kidney to save a life and all the work he does for organ donation. He’s really passionate about football but hates cheating and defensive crap football. Hence why Tyrone have come in for a lot of criticism from him. He calls it as it is though and he will be missed on rte.

Nope, he peddles blatant mistruths to further his agenda and it can be extremely vindictive and nasty too. I won't divulge much into his personal life but you can probably find a lot of answers there too.

So much hatred, poison and obsession. Such a cheap shot to leave hanging. Haters are gonna hate... Tyronies need to let it go.

Feck me there's as much whining from the Derry (And Armagh as it happens!!)  posters about Tyrone ones disliking their wee Joe. It's equally as cringworthy as some of the comments on Joe. Some people don't like him. Not the end of the world lads. While I'm sure Joe admires your staunch defense of his name, I'd also say he doesn't give one iota of a sh!te to what is posted on T'internet about him.

There's far more competitive games in the Hurling, especially in the early weeks of the championship. That's not RTÉ's fault.

Listened to his interview where he was pressed on his double standards. He was asked if he would ever work for Sky, now that he had done his u-turn on Eir. He didn't rule it out, but only, says he, if Sky agree to allow hospitals to broadcast the games for free because that is "huge" for him.

Talk about a desperate attempt to cling to his moral high ground despite having just willfully slid down from it. An absolute bulls****er.

Why does he only require Sky to offer their match broadcasts free to hospitals before he'd work for them? Why doesn't he require that from Eir too?

One suspects if Sky came looking for him first, he'd have lept at it and no doubt righteously proclaimed that he would never work with Eir unless they offered their broadcasts to hospitals for free.

The fact of the matter is, if you are prepared to accept a role on a pay-per-view channel, you forfeit your right to use the 'but what about those in hospital' line. You can't ride both those horses at the same time, Joe. You look silly trying to.

Is there?

The hurling championship is effectively ringfenced for 9 counties. It's a bit of a joke now where it's highly likely teams could meet at 3 different stages of the Championship.

I'm critical of the Super 8 platform, the hurling Championship starts off on pretty much a Super 8 platform, you have four provinces amalgamated into two and a load of games that effectively mean nothing.

As for hurling itself, doesn't do a lot for me as a spectacle, quite aimless with teams just driving the ball from one end of the pitch to the other, as much as RTE wish to hype it up I don't really care for it.
