Watched the game on tv because I was at the clubs finals this afternoon. It was one of the most hilariously biased pieces of commentary I've heard in a while. He's a decent commentator overall though, I don't mind him.

Biased or what. If he could have given dublin a free he would have.

RTE have made a big mistake by allowing McStay back into their coverage. He is on a different planet.

Also Dessie Dolans co-commentary is enough for me to switch off. Brutal

His first night back and he couldn't even try and hide his hatred of Kerry. Sad man .

Rather difficult listening to this guy talking about discipline, when we witnessed him throwing balls at officials last year, very poor commentator with a bias towards certain issues. His breakdown of discipline last year, viewed by thousands of impressionable children was shocking especially from a senior officer of the Defence Forces.

I had forgotten about that and you are 100% correct. RTÉ mustn't be able to afford decent pundits god love em.

Ya you always get the impression with Dolan that he'd be asking the like of Whellan and Sean cavanagh for their autographs after the show.

Dessie is no teenager, he is a second level teacher in Moate.
