Cork hurling ace Patrick Horgan has blasted critics of the Rebels’ All-Ireland SHC quarter-final display against Kilkenny.
The Leesiders went down by 2-27 to 3-18 to the Cats at Croke Park last month and, speaking to the Irish Independent, described the pundits dishing out the criticism afterwards as “gammy”.
"They think they know it all," he stated. "They do... all the boys...they're not going to take my eyes from me. I watched the Leinster final, the '96 Leinster final on telly last week and they're gammy!
"So there's none of them fellas going to talk about us. I don't know who they all think they are. They were all there too in that situation. And they all have situations where that word could be thrown at them too. If you go digging, I'm sure you'd find it. But yeah, I saw them fellas playing and I'll leave it at that.
"It makes me angry though. Because hurling now is not easy. Then you do something wrong and the boys above in the studio like, f**king, the arrows and all of this. We don't give a s**t what they say. It's just the fellas that are saying it baffle me."
