GAA president says The Sunday Game is “predictable, tiresome, unfair and consistent in its negativity”

GAA president Aogán Ó Fearghail has hit out at the RTE2’s GAA analysis show ‘The Sunday Game’ because it is “consistent in its negativity.”

Aogán Ó Fearghail has already raised the issue about the negative talk on the show particularly the comments of  Joe Brolly, Shane Curran and Colm O’Rourke. 

Speaking to ‘The Irish Examiner’ the Cavan man spoke about how some of the talk on the TV show is frowned upon.

“I did say it before and I would still say it again: I think some of The Sunday Game commentary is unfair, But at this stage it’s predictable and in fairness it’s consistent in its negativity. So it’s fairly predictable. It’s tiresome, I find. When people talk about smells or nastiness or anything like that, I just find it unhelpful in our sport. I like analysis where people say something is wrong and where they point out that something could be improved. There’s nothing wrong with that but using that type of language is not something I like.”
