You are right . It is part of a package for RTE but the clubs don't get any if it. Heard Pat Fenlon bemoaning the fact that every time a Rovers home match was televised, it cost the club 20K. This is part of the scandal that is the FAI paying Delaney a massive salary, paying for his partner to attend conferences abroad per the Sunday Times and all the executive committee I believe have Co Credit Cards that I understand are used frequently in Chapter One. While this goes on. the clubs are impoverished .

But RTE dont pay the FAI for league games. Its more like thay have knocked a piece off the international rights for LoI games to be shown and Soccer Republic so almost like the FAI paying RTE. The rest I doubt too many would disagree with,

Thats probably true. But i just cant see RTE ponying up for showing League of Ireland just yet. They seriously cut costs and binned showing the Premiership as a result.

dell1 wrote:The FAI say that as part of rights for international games they required RTE to also televise a certain amount of LoI games. The implication being that they couldnt sell the rights to RTE and they had to obligate RTE to show domestic games. I doubt the FAI keep RTE money for the league broatcasts but what level of overall money the league generates in other areas the FAI seemingly refuse to tell clubs. Make what you will of that. But RTE i highly doubt pay for league games.


Leaving aside the lack of financial transparency about the TV money is accounted for in the FAI''s books, the fact is that both RTE and Eir have the right to cherry pick games to suit themselves. With the (unlikely) exception of a last day of the season winner take all sold out title decider, the home side always loses out, both in atmosphere and in monetary terms.

Whether you like it or not, the FAI have the right idea. Keep the clubs poor and grateful for any scraps you throw their way. God forbid they should follow the Icelandic model where solidarity money is shared amongst the clubs.

Interesting article on RTE website about 1979, the last time the pope visited Ireland. Dundalk won the double that year. ! Let's hope we can repeat it !!.
Interesting recording of a live broadcast by Philup Greeme from Oriel Park of the infamous European match against Linfield.

Almost down to the last 8. Guaranteed two 1st Division sides. Definitely prefer a home draw as there are some long away trips there. Draw on Soccer Republic on Monday. Anyone know if QF is to a finish on the night?

Shelbourne has been a regular in the cup of recent so bound to pop up in the draw ;) Home would be nice but the last cup game in Tolka had over 1000 Dundalk fans so a decent away trip.

Shels away on a Friday night would be a great away trip.

Still, home game against anyone would be preferable. We'll beat anyone at home

Last 8 now finalised. Dylan McGlade scored again tonight for Longford (OK a penalty) and from what I've seen he is a bit of a handful. Settling unfinished business with Neale Fenn would be really nice, but I think it's a potential banana skin for anyone drawn away.

I'd prefer see us play a team from our own division. On paper our second team should beat anyone in 1st division but we would more than likely put out a strong team vs a top team. With a strong team we should beat anyone
