Get It Off Your Chest


#2818

Or if parents stopped suing over the slightest things


#2819

If they keep paying them out, why would they stop. It encouraging them more than anything!


#2820

Are the presenters/commentators giving their time for free also?


#2821

They’d be getting paid regardless if they’re on a contract presumably so doubt it’s costing RTE anything extra


#2822

And they’re showing up on Saturday for free?


#2823

But they wouldn’t be getting anything extra I presume they’d be getting that money anyway


#2824

Can you be sure of that?
Are they commentating from Donnybrook or in-situ in Wondsor?
Are they paying for their own taxis/hotels/flights (whichever is applicable)? Meals? Expenses?
It’s nonsense, if anyone in Ireland wants to watch it, there are plenty of alternative media. It’s one thing to listen to Nicholas Witchell fawning over a royal family but to have Irish citizens doing so (and it will, no doubt, cost some TV licence money) on the state broadcaster’s main TV channel is another thing, altogether.

Donnybrook afaik from reading what RTE have said


#2826

I can’t bear that man. He’s so awful, he really is…

Apparently RTE have scooped Miss Marple’s Dad and are flying him over to do co-commentary.


#2827

That’s Charlie Windsor’s quote, yes?


#2828

Feck … I’ve been rumbled …


#2829

It sickens me to say, but even as puerile as the whole thing is, I bet that it will probably bring in the advertising $$ to Donnybrook as the fashionistas lose the run of themselves for the day…


#2830

Is the correct answer. They’d make sweet fa if they were showing some cookery show or whatever they’d normally show at that time on a Saturday


#2831

They’d do it for nothing out there
#westbrits


#2832

TV3 are showing the whole shebang from 9:30 on Saturday morning. Admittedly it’s merely ITVs coverage that they’re showing


#2833

I plan on getting up at 9.25 on Saturday morning …

for a pi55 …


#2835

Sure ye are.

More likely ye’ll be sat in front of the telly with a full English and a cup of tea watching all the comings and goings from Windsor :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#2836

Indeed. I love me car auctions!


#2837

And when RTE do take their ad breaks, the viewers won’t be switching over to BBC/Sky/ITV? This issue won’t be lost on the advertising execs. Why in God’s name would you want to buy advertising slots that will be viewed by eff-all people?


#2838

You’re trying to apply logic to an illogical situation. Hotels trying to put on royal wedding events and the like, the more technologically advanced the world gets, the stupider people become
