Episode 2547: Replays And Reputations, Newcastle’s Destiny, Rory V Reed Gets Ugly
Nothing less than the reputation of the GAA is at stake here”, said Joe Brolly yesterday, and that’s pretty much where we’re at with the ongoing 16/17 man Kilmacud Crokes farrago.
As Watty Grahams Glen officially lodge their complaint with Croke Park, we talk to Paul Flynn and Michael Foley of the Sunday Times about just why this story has garnered so much media attention from people way outside the GAA this week, what the right thing to do here was, and what the likeliest outcome now is for this cursed All-Ireland club football final.
We also discuss Newcastle’s march to Wembley, golf feuds and Ken tells us about the single most dangerous thing about being a professional footballer at the moment.
