Are you kidding me?

RTE want to be there when (they hope) we fall from grace. That's the reason Saturday's nothing game in Donegal is also live on TV. During the EA final Brian Kerr tried to make out that Stephen Kenny celebrated McEleney's goal in front of the Dundalk fans BECAUSE IT WAS TALLAGHT. Every time they try to stir up the question of revenge he just fends it off - and that doesn't make for good media as far as they're concerned.

What absolute nonsense.

The game next Tues is not on TV (well not on RTE anyway)

The reason Saturdays game is on TV is because RTE are obliged to show the game which would crown a team Champions. The same reason Cork were on TV last few weeks when they potentially could have won it.

Same reason our games last 2 years to clinch league title were on TV!

Some of the garbage sprouted here is unreal!

I know the replay from last year was also not shown, Derry v Dlk away.

Pity for those who can't make it, prob wont get a chance to see it now. Unless EIR step in.
