The Sunday Independent journalist and the former Ireland international had agreed to sit down on this week's show and hash out some differences - on the behaviour of the Dublin football team in the All-Ireland final, of what constitutes cheating in sport and whether rugby has some issues it needs to face up to regarding doping and pain-killers.

The show has proved to be a hot talking point across all social media channels so here is a taste of what you thought.

For many, the podcast offered was compelling listening.

There was high praise for Luke Fitzgerald, who has settled into his role as co-host alongside Will Slattery with ease.

As always, there was a lot of love for ever-the-professional Kimmage.
