TV Rights, best avoided

I haven’t taken a deep dive yet bud, as always you have to check twice with the headlines from the Fake News media.


#1505

Nodding and agreeing


#1506

so 5/6th of the country aren’t Irish?


#1507

Seamus Heaneys five towers of Irish identity is well worth a read. Its called the quincunx. I would reside predominately somewhere between Thoor Ballylee tower and central tower. You might reside in the Martello Tower version version of Irishness. Geoffrey Boycott and Tassoti either in the Kilcolman castle/ Carrick Fergus Castle. And Sydney then would have to be given a tower provided by the state. We all have inherent biasness but there has been increased revisionism over the last decade on the meaning of being Irish. Heaney does a good job at trying to give it a frame of reference now.

Stop speaking English then you clown.


#1509

can you answer the question please mate, are the 5/6ths of the Oirish population who didn’t watch the spud hockey not Irish?


#1510

No they are not Irish in the true sense of the word.


#1511

because they don’t like a game invented by British Landlords?


#1512

Nigel Owens is more Irish than them


#1513

I think that’s a spelling mistake at the end there.


#1514

disastrous TV ratings for the bogball final. down with the spud hockey its that low

A big Ireland football or rugby game is nearly double an all Ireland final


#1515

I’d believe it. Fisty bogball in its current guise is finished. Bad enough to have one team dominate it but when that team is the duds people will switch off in their droves.


#1516

Agreed but to be as low as the hurling is still a shock

@Tim_Riggins


#1517

Link ???


#1518

Link to what?

707k is the official figure


#1519

That many ??


#1520

Crikey - that’s twice what I expected.


#1521

The GGA is dying.


#1522

true , bizarre decision to put money into the 1 county that has no interest in it


#1523

Sport is dying. Lads don’t want to play for the FAI. Being strong armed into it. Nobody wants to play full contact rugby.

It’s all PS4 now. That’s the way it’s gone these days.
