    RTE spending how much to cover a tournament Ireland isn’t involved in?
    When punters can watch it on other channels anyway.
    Cash for the boys and gives the largely idle sports department something to do.

        The national broadcaster’s role is that of public service not commercialism for the sake of paying its staff.
        The World Cup will be available on ITV and BBC presumably.

        Yea. What were they thinking?! BBC also, what were they thinking? Can’t RTÉ just cover GAA and local poo like Andrew wants please.

          The BBC are not charging YOU for the privilege to be advertised at.
          You spectacularly miss the point.

      They’re probably making it back in advertising as it’s going to be watched in the thousands. They’d be remiss not to broadcast it

            Tag team!
            I don’t know what that means, but I assume you’re saying you could grate parmesan on your abs?

            Ah jaysus. Am I also going to have to assume which part you’re claiming is chunky?

    What are they on, a quarter mill of public money each? If only there was something RTE could do to ease its financial crisis…

    1. Frilly Keane

      they are in their……
      Jacqui is on about 100
      yer man Collins about 80 I’d say

      and Darragh Moloney, who imo is one of the best Sports heads in the game, is on about 170 180
      and one’ah the few out there that would get a start anywhere in the World
      on 3 times as much

      Day’cent sort as well
