If you mean the Moyna piece, I can see how you’d read it that way but to me those bits are window dressing for the rest, the agenda is clear, and he also contradicts himself which is usually a sign of fitting facts to suit opinion. At best the piece is naive, or disingenuous. And we all know Niall is surely at least quite a smart guy.
As for the opinion by people that McSpewy is genuine in his beliefs, yeah, he’s genuine in his bias. Engaging in any sort of debate is his way of trying to look kosher. He knows he has to do it but he never does it enough to blow his cover completely. Those twitter comments that he deleted show exactly what he really believes and wants. The funding stuff is the handy vehicle. I’ve read multiple opinions like his on forums from people who were clearly biased to begin with. People who for example latched onto first of all a campaign that the GAA got referees to make sure Dublin won an All-in, then to keep making sure Dublin had success in order to “justify their investment”, and who are incapable/unwilling to debate even a single game involving Dublin without carrying on their campaign. It is designed for one purpose, and one only - to undermine, discredit, and refuse to accept the achievements. The word ‘bitter’ is perfect as a summary of this kind of thing.
