Sky Sports and the GAA.

(Oldest Posts First)

So Liam O'Neill and his decision makers in the GAA are surprised that the tv mentors on RTE were opposed to the decision of the GAA to sign on with Sky Sports to telecast some GAA games.Where are they living? Are they not aware that the regular gaa fan cannot afford SKY!!!.GER LOUGNANE had it right when he stated ththe hard working gaa fans who volunteer so much are the ones who will suffer from this decision. GAA OFFICIALS, it was a terrible decision. Remember those to whom you should be loyal!!!! brian boru

You might be a little knee jerk in your reaction there. I think Sky will do a better job than rte and improve the standard of broadcasting. They ll bring some professionalism. The panels on rte are jaded and the format hasnt changed in 30 years. Of course its going to cost money to watch and thats a big ask for some people during these hard economic times. The fact is though that many people can afford to pay and will
