I think the RTE skit about the ‘pretty little girl from Omagh’ song was more crass than malicious.
But I suppose any prospective sponsor would’ve know the craic before they signed up.
As BelfastDub said…the players aren’t barred but most likely feel they’re supporting the manager.
Besides, even when they’re interviewed by BBC, it’s like pulling teeth with players giving the usual cliches…so it’s not like they’re being deprived.
Still…you’d think there’d be a work around to this.
