Joe Brolly Finished With RTE

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Replying To Curlew66:  "Joanne looked much more relaxed without having to contend with "Hold on, hold on let me finish" from someone who has already dominated 80% of the discussion. She seems to have a good grasp and feel for the GAA compared to say Rachel on Sky Sports.
Thought individual panelists were allowed to give a more thorough, meaningful analysis instead of getting a sound bite in edgeways between interruptions. Agree with some here who would have Colm O'Rourke instead of Rockford on the panel. Overall an enjoyable evening's viewing, two superb teams playing a very good game with an excellent first half."
Rochford even.

Joe and his four pints. I have gone to games with friends who have too many pints before a game. You would think they had been at a different game with what they missed and what they thought they saw. Though I guess Joe's analysis could only go one way.

That must stop

Replying To Joxer:  "Another WUM account. I'll choose Leitrim as my county because it's small and everyone likes Leitrim. Legend."
I would say it's the first time I've been told I am pretending to be from Leitrim because it's likeable!

Think they come into the game fueled up rather than getting drunk at the bar inside.

Auld Dublin lads should have more cop on, they look like idiots but young Kerry lads probably went looking for a clipping too..hard men.

Replying To browncows:  "Sean Cavanagh likes talking about himself and as an analyst I would give him 4/10 on a good day. Why did no analyst pick up the 9/10 steps for the goal which because of the speed could not be seen by the Ref. I though Galvin's description of the incident of the event was very good; 'a hound after a hare with the hare always going to win' a straight run."
Most of the pundits are poor. Theres a host of ex players and managers out there some of them have to be decent. Canavan is excellent in my opinion. Dolan may not be controversial but he is the blandest commentator I've ever heard. How is he still there

Oisin McConville is the stand out for me.
RTE need him in Dessie's seat next year

Kind of ironic but Brolly is just what sky needs!!!! although he'll hardly do a judas and join them. RTE will rue the day they gave Brolly gate. the analysis won't be worth watching anymore lol!!!!

There never was much analysis with Brolly. Hopefully that'll change now he's gone

I will concede that I used the word analysis very loosely there. lol

Loving the people who are saying RTE need him. People will watch the games regardless.

100% correct ... 1.1 million tuned in to watch replay. Good presentation overall.

You'd want to watch BBC NI's coverage of the Ulster championship, best commentators and pundits going.

Absolutely. Was great to actually hear the analysis without having himself butting in interrupting all the time or muttering away in the background

You still need a token nordie on the programme though.

If I was RTE I would poach Marty Clarke from BBC.

I think he is very good.
