Joe Brolly takes Sky Sports criticism to another level with 'Baywatch' jibe

OUTSPOKEN GAA pundit Joe Brolly has described Sky Sports' new GAA lineup as "TV3 plus Baywatch babe".

The Derry barrister has been highly critical of the GAA's deal with Sky in interviews and on social media since the partnership was announced describing it as being "a breach of principle".

"The core of the GAA has always been that it is of the people, by the people, for the people. But as each new line is crossed, it becomes more difficult for us to feel that we are all in it together," he wrote in his column in Gaelic Life last week.

"The justifications for the SKY deal, that it increases the audience and encourages global participation, are fallacies."

Last night, the 1993 All-Ireland winner had another go at the Sky arrangement and a dig at their new anchor, Sky Sports News' Rachel Wyse.

He tweeted: "SKY = TV3 plus Baywatch babe".

His tweet, which has not been deleted, garnered some negative backlash on Twitter.
