I couldn’t believe it. I’m just watching the TV here, and I was listening to a sports report on RTÃƒâ€°. They were doing a little item on the forthcoming opening of the Heineken Cup campaign.
Good. What did they start with? Well of course, they opened with Munster, the current European champions, as they should. That took 30 seconds where somebody talked about Munster’s team selection.
What did they spend the rest of the time on? Leinster, the team who didn’t win the European Cup. The team who have never won the European Cup. They had interviews with the players, video of their training and a breathless analysis of their chances in the competition.
They gave a few seconds to Munster, the current European champions, and double winners of the trophy, and devoted the rest of the piece to the prospects of their friends and neighbours in Dublin.
For Christ’s sake! It’s fucking unbelievable.
Listen people. Wake up. This is our national broadcaster, paid for by all of us, but it thinks Dublin is Ireland. Isn’t it about time the rest of us started refusing to pay our broadcasting licences?
What a useless crowd of gobshites.
And look! Someone else agrees with me: Munster Whitewash Leinster
