Sunday papers today suggesting that very quickly it will cost €20 euros per match on pay-per-view as has happened with big events in UK.
FAI say "scummy fans" can watch the matches an hour later on TV3 - yea right! - Not if you live in Castlebar - no signal in most parts. Crap coverage anyway.
Today's Poll 70:30 FAI deal more obnoxious even than the Ansbacher depositors who were selling Ireland down the river. The FAI have sold Ireland to themselves as the Sunday Turbine put it.
Our former minister Sheila DeValera - dismantler of RTE - destroyer of the film industry - general messer - and not even legislation to protect even the All Ireland Final - we get what we vote for.
"Grab the cash" indeed.
