I'm sick to the teeth of the moaners about this 'Deal' with SKY.
RTE had their chance...and blew it ! Yes they may have spent alot of money on the 'production' side but that's like buying the car for 10 Euro's and spending 10,000 Euro's on it upkeep (ie. salaries for the RTe Exec's, etc.).
What service in the past have we got from RTE to allow them ditate the sport.
The 'Moaners' are the same ones who complainned when Mick McCarty was appointed, who complained about losing our 'greatest football asset - Roy the Moaner keane', and moaned about the 'amaturism of the FAI in general.
The FAI do a brillian deal and suddenly that's wrong too, because they should now act with thir 'Amature Hat' on.
Come On Ireland ...and Feck the begrudgers !
