Old Man Yells At Sky


This morning/afternoon.

Ahead of Saturday’s All-Ireland quarter-final between Cork and Dublin shown only on Sky Sports…

“Unless we do something about it, we’re going to be stuck in a bigger county scenario where we won’t get to see our local county team playing on RTÉ. It’s beyond belief at this stage. We have had a torrid 18 months, Cork as much as everyone else needs a lift. There is a cohort of older people who are GAA supporters totally disenfranchised by this commercial decision that has left the grassroots reeling.”

Fine Gael senator Tim Lombard.

Down with the free market.

    I don’t watch RTE except for a substantial part of its output that it spends a lot of money producing.

    The free market is rubbish, I’ve been living in the States and absolutley every sport is behind a paywall. It may be cheaper to produce but some sports should be a public good.
