I sort of agree. There is way too much hyperbole in sport with everything being life and death, and everyone overcoming some hardship before their achievement. There can be way too much X Factor type stuff in all of this. I just want to watch the games, they can keep the back story in a lot of instances.
I prefer the Mick O Connell approach as quoted in this Brolly article
Having said that, in this instance O Donnell is just a young lad faced with a rake of journalists and trying to say something sensible, that’s not easy.
