Well done Gah fans. Look at a gift horse. And kick it

League of Ireland fans are spitting with jealousy about the GAA/Sky deal - so why are Gah heads so against it? Shane Robinson, Shamrock Rovers, in action against Danny North, Sligo Rovers.

I was talking to a colleague the other day and, as often happens, the League Of Ireland came up in conversation.

He was bemoaning the current state of the local game in Ireland and went off on a rant against its administration. It veered wildly from his resentment of the people at the grassroots level who he thinks are well meaning but shambolic, to those at the top of the FAI, who he thinks are simply evil. As I said, he's a big League of Ireland fan, so nuance isn't his strong point.

In fact, when it comes to the brainiacs who run the upper echelons of the game in this country, his hackles automatically raise and he starts to splutter and squeak in increasingly incomprehensible expressions of rage and vitriol.
