I’d love to know what game he was watching. Yes it was close and that made it exciting, but overall the game was far from great. There were so many bad wides, poorly executed passes and at times substandard ball control that you couldn’t call that a good game let alone a great one.
This is the problem with so many GAA pundits, show them an average Hurling game and it is amazing, the best thing ever. But show them an average football game and it’s terrible stuff, ruining the game & people should be ashamed of themselves.
And just in case people think I’m being anti-hurling, I think when played at its best there is nothing to touch it. But the amount of times it is played at that level are sadly few and far between (and today was nowhere near it).
In summary, the closeness of a game does not equal the quality of the game. I wish someone would explain this to RTÉ.
