how am i biased - i love hurling football and rugby in equal measure -can somebody not like more than one sport

how are my points childish - mediaman referes to rugby as its favourite son - i am merely making the point that if it was the case then some coverage of the super rugby final would be on rte via showing e.g. clips from scores"
you know full well why they dont show super rugby.its not popular over here in the slightest and they dont have the rights to it....debate the points made instead of deflect deflect deflect.....spare us the you love hurling and football..you are defending rte as a broadcaster purely because rugby is mentioned?..you are undoubtedly pro rugby..why the hell are they hyping up leinster n munster games when there is nothing there on one of the biggest gaa weekends of the year?

If the GAA does decide to stage the Rugby Union World Cup in 2023 given the plummeting attendances at Munster Rugby matches this past season, there's every chance that by 2023 there may be no Rugby Union supporters left to watch it.

having read the above post i would disagree
given that you are discounting the views of me and ormond on the basis of our "bias" can we assume you will discount mediamans view on the basis of his anti rugby bias as shown above?

he referred to diarmuid connelly being questionedby rte over the incident in westmeath game and compared it to CJ stander- i made the counterpoint that if stander was in front of the media 2 days after his red card he would certainly have been questioned over it

cj stander they were discussing whether he should get off or not..he didnt receive much criticism in the slightest..you fail to acknowledge where rte make mistakes...mediaman himself praised them the other day...why are you so pro rugby and pro rte?..be objective and reasonable..as has already been discussed sky are a much bigger broadcaster than rte and outbid them for the pro 12...comparing the pro 12 with the all ireland championship is pretty laughable..if you were being reasonable you would compare the champions cup with the all ireland championship as they are the big competitions..rte dont show the league nor do they show the pro 12

because of his behaviour..he behaves like a pr person employed by the irfu...again why cant you be genuine and objective in your posting?...to say he is not pro rugby is really stretching things...why is there such a strong defence of rte so?...any reasonable person can point out that giving munster and leinster hype when there is nothing going on and failing to hype the big gaa games at the weekend is both biased and strange

because you arent being genuine in your posts..you dont compare like with like....you try and score cheap points...you dont debate the issues or even acknowledge them..you are only interested in deflecting and focusing on something else...super rugby is a very niche sport in ireland so doesnt warrant any coverage on our broadcaster as much as i enjoy it personally myself but im fully aware im in a minority

'if im not then your not' good response there ormo....i admit biases when i see them no matter the sport, rugby right now doesnt warrant more coverage than gaa..its simply not in the middle of rugby season while there is massive games on rte at the weekend in gaa..obviously they should be receiving coverage over the rugby as there is simply nothing going on...pretty straight forward stuff but go on continue to behave like the irfu pr man...they really should send you a pay check or 2 because you are being used as a devout slave who is getting 0 rewards otherwise

so professional is better or superior is it?..they dont warrant the coverage they are getting at this stage of the year its that simple..i really think the likes of you and janesboro just need to hold your hands up and admit for once in a while 'yeah they shouldnt be covering that at this stage or this should be getting more hype' it would be refreshing and add to the debate..i wouldnt expect the dublin footballers to be getting massive coverage over what dundalk did the other night for instance as its not warranted...the same goes with if leinster were playing a big champions cup game in february

To be fair janesboro it is clear that mediaman is referring to rte news rather than rte as a whole when he states that so far the weekend gaa games have been totally ignored so your response is entirely disingenuous. I suspect you knew that but for some reason refuse to accept that RTE news treatment of the bigger sports in Ireland is inconsistent at best. Doesn't matter greatly to me as I don't receive rte but i do find it a bit sad that the national games of the country should be treated so poorly by the news team.

This leads me to the view that RTE is not biased towards rugby

rte six one news on thursday had preview of tipp v galway -with cameras in ballyporeen (marty was there) ,limerick and galway

Soma (UK) - Posts:1551 - 04/08/2016 14:27:26 1895540

Yes but i think that when considering rte coverage their whole coverage should be considered, radio, internet, television. I think overall it gets fair coverage -the thread title does not refer to rte news - it could be better but the rugby soccer and other sports coverage could improve too. I feel they are picking on where RTE are weakest and honing in on that.

and separately (and i should have responded earlier) its the junior all blacks who are New Zealands designated second team and not the maoir as i incorrectly stated The Maori have to pass a geneology test as well as qualify to play for New Zealand in order to play for the Maori, the junior all blacks have not played since 2009/10. Be some pretty good players on show nonetheless

as has already been discussed sky are a much bigger broadcaster than rte and outbid them for the pro 12...

yes but tg4 are not - so rte could outbid them if they were interested ,rte could also outbid them for champions cup highlights -they could also outbid them for the Allianz leagues too - suggest to me they have a similar level of interest in either

ok lets be objective and reasonable - rte overall show a lot more gaa than rugby (yes i know gaa encompasses 5 sports) but in fairness they show on average two championship games a week and sometimes three plus radio plus sunday game and ancilliary programmes.

Im not pro rte -i just fail to understand how people make out rte as being so anti gaa when they show a lot of it
