In the second of an INM special series on the Business of GAA, Frank Roche explores, with Pat Spillane, Martin Breheny and Colm Keys, Dublin GAA's commercial deals and asks if pay-for-play is on the way?

Recorded live from the 2016 Ploughing Championships in front of a packed-out Irish Independent Marquee, Frank Roche wanted to know if Dublin have an unfair advantage with all of their sponsorship deals while Pat Spillane pointed out that Mayo is only the thirteenth largest county in terms of population and yet still managed to nearly beat the Dubs.

Roche also asked the panel about the vexed question of pay-for-play with Martin Breheny adamant it was coming, Colm Keys foresees a county franchise model developing and Spillane says he can see a day when players will want a slice of the GAA's millions.
