I think I posted earlier in the year about the media slant in relation to rugby compared to GAA especially in the Independent Media Corp newsprint .
Again the result of the French game brought it to light. I can’t recall a worse French team to the extent that had some people in the crowd played for France in the second half - would we have noticed the difference? But our performance was unreal apparently.
If Dublin beat Meath by 15 points in the Leinster Championship this summer - it will all be about the demise of Gaelic Football .
When Ireland beat a hapless French outfit it’s about how good Ireland were.
i suppose when you have corporate sponsors to keep happy ( TV3 can’t be expected to do proper analysis ) - and when you have Matt " who has he ever coached that was any good" Williams in the chair - the odds get longer again …
The double standards are quite extraordinary and there is a nasty element in the media who is hell bent on reducing Gaelic Games to the waste-ground of Irish sport.
