No, I'm NOT joking !
If people want the 'Irish Soccer Scene' to be professional, then let them.
Can people out there not see the difference between 2 Million and 7 Million Euro's.
I think the FAI are right to take advantage of SKY's charity, cos I honestly can't see how SKY can make that kind off money on the whole deal.
We're only a small country with a population of about a third of London......small fish in a very big sea !
I wonder how many of the 'moaners' out there spend most if their time supporting an 'English' club, follow there performance every week, and actually subsribe to 'Sky Sports' ?
I have Sky, but will not be adding the 'Sports; channels to my subscription, thank you very much.
The biggest crime the FAI could do is throw the money away and not reinvest it all the way through the system......set up a 'Soccer School", in association with FAS and make the whole scene here in Ireland professional...not like in Scotland with 2 Clubs, but in similar sized countries like Belgium/
