THE THROW-IN PODCAST: Alan Brogan & Ciaran Whelan on why Jim Gavin hasn't done Dublin GAA any favours
On this week's show, Will Slattery & Rory O'Connor are joined by INM's Conor McKeon and Martin Breheny as well as former Dublin stars, Alan Brogan and Ciaran Whelan, to discuss 'Gavin-gate', the reaction and fall-out, plus whether the Dubs are harming the Leinster championship.
Brogan and Whelan give their thoughts on 'Gavin-gate', Jim Gavin's surprising attack on the media in relation to the Diarmuid Connolly ban, and explain why they were surprised and feel he hasn't done Dublin GAA any favours.
"The players will appreciate the sentiments," says Brogan. "Though Jim is usually measured and I thought it would have been better going through private channels."
"Reaction to the Sunday Game analysis was over the top and Jim Gavin hasn’t done himself or Dublin GAA any favours by their reaction," says Whelan.
Would the reaction had been the same if it had been a Carlow player asks the panel? While, Martin Breheny wonders why they changed their minds afterwards?
"It doesn’t add up," says Breheny. "Why didn’t they take any action at the time?"
