Replying To marmalade_farmer:  "Not a bit of it. They're showing club games after decades of ignoring it because they see the ratings from tg4 for similar coverage. We are blessed to have tg4's excellent coverage, but it is very poor on rte. And this nonsense about amateur pundits, do you think it makes sense that they continue to have pundits from a county standing in on a match involving that county, some of whom might have played with them 2 or 3 years earlier maybe? Are they going to be objective in their views on them. Of course not. If they can't properly prepare for a role then they need to step away from it. What are ya on about whingers for? This is a thread on a forum about RTE, and I am making my point, grow up."
I for one am glad that RTÉ have expanded their coverage. The more games we see the better. I couldn't care less what their motivation for showing these games is. I'm also happy to see fresh faces analysing the games. There is a very large element of political correctness in relation to the inclusion of female analysts working on broadcasts of mens' games. There are absolutely no male analysts included on RTÉ's broadcasts of any womens' team sports. That aside the broadcasting of additional games by RTÉ is a very welcome development. You are more than entitled to articulate your opinion. However don't throw your toys out of the pram if you get criticised. Saying that RTÉ is good for nothing is whinging.

Replying To tiobraid:  "So what's your solution. Pay pundits like MNF on Skysports and invest heavily in technology for club games with a few hundred supporters? Then complain for the cost of the TV license? Did you ever think a lot of pundits from outside counties would have little or only a small amount of knowledge about clubs in other counties? I'll hold my hands up and say that I'd know little about the Wexford club hurling championship for example so wouyld it not be very useful to have a punidt with an inside knowledge on the county cship. I'm struggling to understand basically any of your points. All you really say is everything is "bad" or "poor" - if that's not whinging I don't know what is. Irish people need to live abroad for a while and see all that we have handed to us here is a luxury and not "poor" or "bad"."
I'm not talking solely about club games, they are a niche market, i'm talking about their inter county coverage re punditry. I have lived abroad and you would get an appreciation of how bad rte output is on all fronts if you did too. Thank you.

I didn't say rte is good for nothing thank you, I said their gaa coverage and news coverage was extremely poor. Any additional games being broadcast is good for sure would you? I don't have a pram for me.
