🚨Pat Spillane takes aim at the Cork GAA supporters .. 😬

Posted by

The former Kerry footballer and eight time winner Pat Spillane took aim at the Cork GAA supporters this week in his column Sunday World basically saying that the Cork supporters would want to get over themselves when it comes to giving out about GAAGo.

The former RTE pundit said the following;

Every GAA championship match cannot be shown on free-to-air television. Furthermore, GAAGO is damn good value and generates much-needed revenue for the Association.

It is ironic that the latest outpouring of anger about GAAGO originated in Cork.

More than any other county, they need generous handouts from the GAA over the next decade as they attempt to pay off the eye-watering €30m debt on Páirc Uí Chaoimh…

Putting three of Cork’s Munster hurling championship matches behind a pay wall is a cynical money-grabbing exercise.

Even though they haven’t won an All-Ireland since 2005, Cork hurlers still have a potentially bigger support base than any other hurling team. The GAA needs to be careful what they wish for.

If they persist with this money generation policy through broadcasting, rest assured it won’t be long before the players demand their slice of the financial pie.
